I get an error message under my user account when I try to access any file.
The error message states: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path
or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
However, when I log in under my wife's or son's user accounts, they work
perfectly fine with access to all files. I checked the User Groups and I am
an Administrator with full priveleges. I can't seem to find an answer as to
why it only impacts my user account! Help me please!

You may be best creating yourself a new account and moving your files to the
new "my documents".
