Win XP installs itself with the "Use simple file sharing" option. What you need to do is deselect this. To do so, go to START-->CONTROL PANEL. Double click on FOLDER OPTIONS. Click on the VIEW tab. and towards the button of the list in the box below the heading ADVANCED SETTINGS, uncheck the box next to USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING (RECOMMENDED)
Then do the following, where file/folder is the folder or file you can't access, in this case it would be the DOCUMENTS & SETTINGS folder.
- Right-click the file/folder and select PROPERTIES
- Go to the Security Tab and then click the ADVANCED button.
- Make sure your user account stay in the "Owner" menu. Then click "Ok" and again "Ok".
- Repeat Step 1
- Go again to the SECURITY tab and add your user account name in the GROUP OR USERS NAME field, and select FULL CONTROL on the field below.
- Press OK and that's all.
