Hi,
Can you tell me if you can't access all files from C;\?

Then try this -

Make sure you are logged-in as an administrator


Press start-->Run--> gpedit.msc press ok

in that window expand the selection of Administrative Templates->Windows Components -> Windows explorer

On the other side lots options will be available
--> go to the Option "Prevent Access on MyComputer.......", and open the properties. If the option is “Property Configured” you should set that to “Property not configured” then press apply -->ok.

...Press start-->Run--> gpedit.msc press ok...
XP Home doesn't include gpedit.msc.

It's not really clear what the OP is doing, I'm guessing he did a backup of his files, then did a System Recovery, or re-installed Windows; in which case Frank4d's suggestion for taking ownership is what needs to be done.
