Hi Sallnjackn. Welcome to Windowsbbs! I am running Windows Vista and I have had a few issues with permissions and trying to gain acess to those stubborn files and folders as well. The only way to gain access to some of those stubborn files or folders is to take ownership of them.
1. Right click on the Sallie folder located in C:/Users/Sallie then go to properties
2. Click the security tab
3. Click advanced
4. Click the owner tab
5. Click edit
6. Highlight your user name and check the replace owner on subcontainers and objects checkbox, click apply then ok. Then press ok on all of the other windows to exit out of them.
Once thats done see if you can gain access to the selected folders. If you run into any problems let me know.

Thank you for your help. The action seemed to work for me. I can access the files but they still have the funny blue mark in them that indicated denied access before. If I have more trouble I'll write back. I notice when I get to properties the read only box is hi-lighted.
