Win7 Pro-unable to open Documents and Settings Folder

By mikegarvey ·
Root directory shows several folders locked. This is my personal home computer. I did not lock any of these folders; "Documents and Settings Folder" (my main objective), Recycle.Bin, MSOCache, Recovery, System Volume Information.

The Documents and Settings folder in Vista and Windows 7 is a Junction that is designed for Legacy Installations for applications that have been designed for Windows XP. When you install these applications they will be redirected to the new location.

It has been named C:\Users

Have a look here if you are not familiar with junctions.

What I'm trying to do is track down the Icon storage folder of a new application installed. I presume it is a sub-folder of the app itself and presumed in must be in the applications sub-folder. Thusfar I have not found it while exploring from the root directory. Thank you for sharing your experience. Any ideas for finding the Icon storage? The app is called ObjectDock. They provide icon zip downloads but save them to a general "downloads" file.

the file that you downloaded if it is the freeware version is objectdock-freeware.exe and you would have selected a location to save it to.
The default install location is C:\ProgramFiles\Stardock\ObjectDock. You will find what they are referring to as icons in C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\Bundled Images
They are actually .png graphics.

If you look on the Start Menu, All Programs, Stardock you will find two readme files.
