In Windows 7 I am trying to access my DRM folder to update a digital rights configuration setting but when I try to open the folder,  I find a padlock icon next to the folder icon and I get a message "C:\Documents and Settings is not accessible. Access is denied." How can I unlock the folder? When I go to properties for the folder and try to change accessibility, access is denied there also.

You may have to manually reset the DRM rights: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/how-do-you-manually-reset-the-drm-media-rights/dbe7f17f-ece0-4067-a9cf-36c015d7ab1f
