    I gave up trying it shows on my machine as a shortcut, and if I clcik
    on the shortcut it says c:\documents and settings is not accessible
    acces is denied. I can try this from my account, from my account as
    administrator and logged in as administrator. It is my one and only
    gripe at Vista.

    Tank God I´m not alone!
    Yep, same error message as Bill Lord:
    "c:\documents and settings is not accessible
    acces is denied."
    And the Document and Settings folder is marked as a shortcut too.

    What to do??

    Definitely not alone, it has bugged me for a while but I have never
    needed to do anything so I left it. Tonight I did a google search and
    came up with about 23500 queries and responses. This one was the
    second one
    http://www.realtime-vista.com/general/2007/04/access_denied_to_documents_and.htm
    it seems to explain matters

    The shortcut I refered to is C:\Documents and Settings, root dir.
    Not that I want to make a shortc. of Document and Settings; Vista is "born"
    with the shortcut - my, and others, trouble, is taht we can´t get acces to
    Documents and Settings.
