Windows 7: Can't access files after reinstall windows 7

Can't access files after reinstall windows 7

Dear All,

I need some help here. Recently I have reinstall my Windows 7 (Professional) for some reasons. I use the same version for the new install. But when I try to open my files, some programs said that they can't create folder in the target location (iPod Video Converter), some said that they need administrator permission to put the file I've downloaded (Internet Download Manager), and some said that they can't open the file (Windows Media Player Classic - from K-Lite Mega Codec).

Is there any solution to fix my problem?
