(if i setup new windows seven will anything be locked as now, or back to default..??)

Hey eng WeSam,

Are you re-installing your OS? If so it will return to its default setting, that is if it is a clean install.

As for the files themselves, if you follow Gokul T's steps to access the Security Tab and turn off the security options, and turn off the settings and select apply to folder and all sub folders it should resolve this. 

I hope this was helpful.
