in vista, seems like almost every file i try to open in windows explorer gives me "access denied" error. the only way to get into my documents folder is thru icon pinned to start menu. very strange.

Please describe how you're opening windows explorer when you experience the error, and post a screen shot if possible.

I have a much more technical description for you if it's needed, but it could be very confusing, so that's why I want to know what
steps bring you to the problem being described.
