OK i know this sounds stupid, but my sister decided to play a little prank on me, she went on the admin user and locked all admin from acessing My Documents. So i basically can't access it or change the setting to allow me back in. Any way that would allow me to change it back??
Thanks for the help

Alrite let me repharsh the whole thing again:
My sister went on my computer, logged into the Admin account, and then went to My Documents sharing and sercuity thing, and for the Admin, she choose Deny for all of them. Meaning i can't access or change the stuff in it. I've tried my account, admins account and even guest account to see if i can change it, but then it doesn't work.
Anyway way to solve this problem?
Thanks

Yep.. reload Windows.. anything else would be against our ToS..

Other than that, any account can be setup with Administrator's rights but, there is a System Admin account that was setup when Windows was setup..

I don't think that was the one she got into and that is the one you have to get into..
