Just because you have Administrator rights (or even if you are in the Administrator account) that doesn't mean that you have the rights to modify any file on the computer (this should be obvious since you can't modify System Volume Information).
There are several different accounts on your system that aren't visible to you with normal methods - and there are also security processes that prevent even the Administrator from changing things.
To view (and modify) the folders there, you'll have to take ownership of them through the Security features of the file system. BUT, deleting/modifying individual restore points can cause the System Restore feature to stop working (or to not work correctly).
Additionally, if you want to modify the access permissions, you'll have to exit the dialog where you took ownership and reopen the dialog to change the permissions. All in all not something to take on casually.
