Hi everyone :)
Finally got vista up and running (after adding another GB of RAM :suprised: ) and the overall impression (after some tweaking) is quite good.

The only thing that realy bothers me is the fact that I can't seem to get access to ""system" files and folders.
That includes the "Start Menu"" folder and other parts which I DEMAND access to (am I being too aggressive? :p )

My user is set to adminstrator and I've dissabled all the warning thingamabobs that vista bothers you with.

Anyone knows how to enable access to all folders and files?

Hey Benny,

what do you mean by access?
Should have no problems deleteing or tidying up the start menu, have done it on mine.

Hey Benny! Did you (temporarily) disable UAC? UAC will deny you access to certain folders, but you should be able to click through.

Thanks for the quick answer guys :)
I'll be more specific:

I've unchecked "Hide Protected OS files" in View->Folder Options
and then tried accesing C:\User\MyUser\Start Menu and got the error (Snapshot attached, made using the nifty "snipping tool")

For Matt, I've tried re-enabling UAC and I still get the same error.

Did you "upgrade" or perform a clean install?

You could try taking ownership of the folder ("Start Menu") and inherit the permissions to that folder.

Worked like a charm, thank you matt :)

For anyone else who is having the problem, you can fix it by changing the premmision in the "security" tab of the properties menu (right click->properties).
