    The Documents and Settings folder has been changed in Windows 7 to C:\users\yourusername\My Documents

    There is a lock on my Documents and Settings folder as well.

    If this doest help, try a restore point to go back to before the problems occurred.

    Im at work and I see the lock and can open the folder anyway but the home won't open . restore point was not set I just loaded win 7 last week DUH!!!??? I think my 7 year old moved or deleted the folder as he was looking at a movie prior:(...Things work ok now I guess I would need to reload win & cd and repair if that is an option ????
