Vista has hidden junctions, which, in Windows Explorer, are shown as hidden
shortcuts, with File Folder properties; they are used, in part, to redirect
program installations that rely on the old XP folder names and XP
locations). For example, "Documents and Settings" is one of those
junctions, and not a
folder as such (and yes, when clicked on, will give you an "access denied"
message). For more info, see:
