i have windows PX Pro and was fillding with user permissions and now i cant access profile of another user and gives me access denied.

The users account is limited account and i have full admin rights but i think somewhere i tweaked something and its not allowing me into the users folder under "my computer".

So i under security tab i added administrators group wiht full control access.

This let me into the users root folder but any other subsquent folder now gives access denied e.g clicking on "desktop" or "my dsocuments"

I have gone into the users top level profile folder's properties and "advanced" option under security tab and on permissions tab it lists Administrators group with full control and applies to "this folder and all sub folder and files"

Is there something else i need to check turn on ?
I can click ok on other users' profile folders and have checked trheir permission settings against this one that is not letting me in and they are identical.

Any help will be appreciated

OK never mind i got it figured out had to check " replace owner on subcontainers and objects" under owner tab so the rights propagated to subfolders

its been ages since i dealt with permssions and i got bit rusty :p
