Windows 7 Permissions

Hi everyone,

I have a Macbook Pro running Win 7 Ultimate.

I'm the sole user on this device as it's my own personal laptop.

What I'd like to know is how I can gain ultimate control so I can access all files without any restrictions.

Is this possible?

Even though I'm the administrator it states access denied on some folders such as the Windows folders.
