In Explorer I try to view the contents of "c:\Documents and Settings" but it
gives me an access denied message.

How can I enable viewing of this folder ?

Re: Documents and Settings
You can't. It's not a folder in Vista, it's a junction point.
Most of the old XP standard folders, like "My.." are junction points. They
are for older software that are unaware of Vista's new folder structure.
They redirect the files to Vista's locations.
