Application Data denied?

Hi, I'm trying to open Application Data to get to a certain program, but am being advised that access is denied.

I already have 'Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives' ticked and 'Hide protected operating system files' unticked in Folder Options.

Could someone advise howto do this please?

You don't need access to it. Its just a junction that points back to its parent. Either AppData/Local or AppData/Roaming is what you want. If its not there try "C:\ProgramData" instead.
