    HELP! Vista Upgrade Locked Out "My Music" Folder

    Help Please!

    I ugpraded Windows XP to Windows Vista Home Premium and now I cannot access:

    My Music
    My Pictures
    My Videos

    No matter what I do, I can't set the permissions right so I can get to my
    files.

    iTunes won't load because the "my music" folder won't open, and all my music
    I paid for is locked out.

    I've searched on the WEB and found lots of posts of people with the same
    problem but no solution. This must be a bug.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Thanks

    Click the Start Orb, type Music (or Pictures) in the search box at the
    bottom. It will display the same as un underlined link at the top of that
    column. Click on it. It will open a folder. Are your files there?

    I upgraded to Vista, and now it appears all my music, including iTunes is gone.

    Either that, or the location has been changed.

    Does anyone have an answer?

    For the Start Orb type Music on the search box. Click on the link that
    appears at the top. Does it open a folder with the music files?
