Can't Acces My Pictures - Access Denied

When the user profile was set up by Future Shop they denied me access to many folders.  If I can get to just one I will be able to fix the rest - so I have chosen My Pictures.  When in Windows Explorer I click Documents, My Pictures  if I want to view pictures. I get 'My Pictures is not accessible. Access is denied."  If I right click My Pictures then go to properties to view permissions, I get "You do not have permission to view this object's security properties.'  The message goes on to suggest that I try to take ownership.  I have tried that and not even the 'System' object has the right to change ownership.  I have tried Administrator and also my personal User ID.

Under the current settings Everyone is allowed to see the folder.
