I googled some more about this and came across a couple of articles on taking ownership of the folder. I followed the article below and afterwords found it was still the same. Although I never made any changes to the default settings in the permissions box as I was unsure which one if any to change.
Documents and Settings
C:\Documents and Settings\"Account name" is not accessible.
Access is denied
To take ownership of a folder To take ownership of a folder, follow these steps:
1.Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
2.Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
3.Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
4.In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objectscheck box.
5.Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message: You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.
Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.
6.Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.
You must have ownership of a protected folder in order to access it. If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the folder by taking ownership.
