    Won't let me access to My Music, My Video, and My Pictures

    I own a Toshiba laptop, and I'm the administrator of my own computer (duh).
    But for some reason, I can't open folders My Music, My Video, and My
    Pictures. When I try to open, the message says that the folder is not
    accessible, therefore access denied. I'm logged in as the admin, yet I can't
    open them! Plus these folders are kind of transparent looking.

    There aren't any users other than myself. I didn't configure any changes to
    my computer (other than the background and bar colors). Oh, and I guess I
    changed my user name on the computer (but does that truly have an effect??).
    Other than those, no huge configuration.

    "My ******" do not exist as 'real' folders. They are there to provide
    backward capabilities for programs written for XP.

    You see them because you have elected to see the protected files that are
    there for the operating system.

    If you wish to open your music files by starting at the root, they are at
    c:\users\your account name\Music
