    I just noticed under users/my administrator account, there is a lock on top
    of the folder. I never had this before. I was looking through Windows Help
    with no Luck.
    How can I remove this lock??

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit.

    Thanks in advance

    Why? Is it hurting anything?

    It denotes that the security settings from that folder level are "stricter"
    than "wide open access" and/or it's not inheriting permissions from the
    current/parent folder it sits in.. Add the "users" group or set it to
    inherit.

    Or, if you are able to access it from the proper accounts, ignore it.
