Windows 7: Admin can't access to anywhere.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Admin - can't access - problems. Hopeless.

Hy guys,

Today I installed New Windows 7 32 bit. Version.
Now, that all installation has completed i wanted to access to my computer, network center, Control panel, and stuff like that.
But I had very confusing problem with it.
It says: Error "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item"
How is this possible that i dont have permission -.-
I search on google, but.. i didnt find anything useful. In User managment i think it says this account is in administrators group.

I can't access anywhere exept Internet and few programs.

MAde some error pictures too..
If i try to go My computer or control panel, it says both errors.
If i try to go usual my documents it says only Explorer error.
+ If program like skype asks permission to do something or connect to internet. It asks Admin permission and i can give this to it..

I'd be very glad if someone anwsers me with solution quickly.

Thanks, Intsu
PS. Bad english

The first thing I would do is create another administrator account, yours may be corrupt.

If that fails, right click CMD and select "Run as administrator" and run sfc /scannow it will try to fix corrupt system files.
