If you go to the folder, you're going to have two accounts you may have to
be concerned with and their permissions:

1) Administrator/machine-name/Administrator
2) spud/machine-name/spud

Are the two accounts in conflict with each other with their permissions? If
you're logged in as *spud* even though you are admin on the machine and spud
doesn't have the same permissions as the Admin account on the folder, then
there is going to be conflict.

I f you are trying to access Documents and Settings in Vista, it is not a
real folder.
It is a Junction that is used to redirect legacy programs to Vista's new
structure.
Documents, Music, etc.
