Windows 7: Change From Name/Administrator > Full Adminstrator

Any folder in your user directory that throws up "Access Denied" is a junction point for old applications.
You should leave these alone. See the links in my signature.

Welcome RLHolden, As some have alluded to on "junction points" are really pointers for older programs that require folder names that are really not in windows 7. If you notice under users there are sometimes two folders with the same name, one you can get into and one you can't. The one you can't is just a pointer for older programs.

I have two "My Documents" in my user folder, one is a shortcut and one looks like a real folder. The one that shows up as a shortcut will not allow access. regardless of what you do. As I said it is there for a pointer.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your informative reply

I did copy over the app settings like suggested but I still can not get all the quick menu shortcuts to show in the Admin account. I did get my monitor calibration settings and etc though.
