I'm curious as to what steps you took to remove the computer from the domain. It looks like the security permissions weren't correctly changed.
Are there other accounts? Do they behave the same?
I'm assuming the administrator account is named "Administrator".
If you pick a folder > right-click it > properties > Security Tab.
In the "Group or user names" section, highlight the Administrator account. While we're here, let's look at this line. Let's say the name of the computer is "COMPUTER". So, this line with the admin account should look like: Administrator (COMPUTER\Administrators). If it shows domain\Administrators, (where domain is the name of the old domain, then that needs to be fixed.
Now, look below in the area that shows the permissions. You should see all the items checked under the "allow" column and none checked under "deny".
Click the Advanced button > Owner tab.
The line "Current owner of this item:" should say Administrator. If not, choose the administrator name below, click the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" check box and click the OK button.
Click OK buttons to close all windows.
Retry to open that folder.
If that works, then we have to reset the permissions on all failing items. That may or may not be too bad, depending on the number of items that need to be corrected. Let us know. There may be an easy way to do it.
