does Windows give you a message saying "access denied" or something?

follow these instructions:

1. reboot the PC

2. before Windows loads, press F8

3. choose Safe Mode

4. once it boots up, log on to the account called "Administrator" (this only shows up in Safe Mode)

5. once you have logged on, right click the folder, and go to "Sharing and Security"

6. click the "security" tab

7. click "advanced"

8. go to the "owner" tab

9. click your user name

10. click "replace owner on subcontainers and objects"

11. click "apply"

12. reboot

I'm not sure why, but the permissions must have been changed or reset. my only guess is that the P2P program might have done it - but that's a wild guess.
