    The files might have security set on them. You may have to change the permissions after taking ownership of the files.

    Try:

    support.microsoft.com/kb/…421 (Taking ownership)

    and

    support.microsoft.com/kb/…419 (Changing permissions)

    The files you are after are probably protected under the users profile. Once you take ownership and change permissions you should be able to access them. You will need to be an administrator on the PC you are working with.

    Hope this helps.
