    You aren't the owner of the file, you need to take ownership and give yourself full permission.

    Go to run, paste the following command and run it.


    cacls e:\docume~1\omarino /e /g YourUserName:f

    You need the same permissions to be passed to lower directories and files.
    Repeat the original command, but add "/t" option.

    The full command now looks like this:
    cacls e:\docume~1\omarino /t /e /g YourUserName:f
    .

    Remember, you need to have administrative rights.

    Also, don't miss off the first bit "cacls" like you did in your post. That's the program that does the work.

    Unless you've installed Vista, in which case you need to use a new program "icacls". In that case the command you need is:
    icacls e:\docume~1\omarino /setowner YourUserName /t

    If you aren't sure why it is failing, open a command prompt and type the command there. That way you get to see the results of the command and you can tell us what it says.

    now i remember..:
    before formating the pc, the user that is called omarino (the one that i wanna enter it) was protected by password..
    so i formatted the pc without removing the pass before...

    is that the reason that i can't enter the file??
    will i have a chance to open it?

    btw, i'm the adminstrator of this pc..

    you could always try giving unlocker: http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

    a go that usually does it all with out having to use command prompts.
