    I am using Windows XP Pro. I have three user profiles on our family computer. They all have administrator rights. On my profile when I click on the "program files" folder in windows explorer I can view all the program folders and files. When I go into the other profiles and click on the "program files" folder I get an error message that says "c:\program files is not accessible. Access is denied." I know that in the past I have not had any trouble viewing this folder in any profile. It only happens on the program files folder not any other folders. Anyone know of a solution to this?
