I had full access to the application data directory before today. I am certain that that folder can be accessed on Windows 7.

Can you post the exact path you're trying to access?

Do you mean the Appdata folder?

Windows 7 has two folders :Application data (hidden) and Appdata(with subfolders:local,roaming,locallow)

I am trying to access the Application Data folder. I beleive I am encountering this problem because I have disabled the Administrative shares. By the way I repaired the screensaver issue by rebooting my machine. B)
