I'm having trouble accessing system files from my XP machine through my Windows 7 network.

This is the error that I get:
"Network Error

Windows cannot access \\xpuser\c\windows

You do not have permission to access \\xpuser\c\windows. Contact your network administrator to request access."

I'm admin on both systems(home).
Even after searching online, I still haven't come across a solution to my problem.

Please Help!

Even an admin has not all the rights (to destroy the system files by accident). Use the c$ share to get access to the system files.
