How can I make it accessible to "everyone"? Thanks a lot for your answer!
The "S-1* blah blah blah" is the SID to your old "user account" which is the reason you're getting the error. The "everyone" group can be added by clicking the "Add" button then typing in everyone then hitting "check names"... it should underline. If and when it underlines, check the box that says "full control".
Thank you. I choosed "everyone" and pressed ok but got access denied on some of the files. Is there a reason why my old user is still there? And how can I remove it completely? I'm sorry im so persisted but this problem is frustrating. I have never experienced this before.

Thanks again for your help!

I tried this and i cant get passed the adding users. access denied!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know it's alog time but if you are still stuck, maybe this will help.

The access cure lies in the folder's Properties (right click to see it at the bottom of the pop-up menu) Click the "Security tab", then "Advanced" button, then highlight the entry showing "Deny". Click "Change Permissions". In the new window highlight the same entry again and click "Edit". In the next window, select "Full Control". Click "OK" and"Apply" etc to come out of it all.

I hope this helps
