OS 10.4 - Access Privileges

Hi Peeps,

In Finder I have the usual list of icons (applications, desktop, documents etc) - on the documents icon I have a padlock and when I click on it it tells me I cannot access it because I do not have the correct Access Privileges. usually you would select the icon, go to get info and unlock and select read and and write.

The problem is I cannot select the icon, when i click I get the above error but I'm not able to get to the 'get info'.

Any advice / other ways around this would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

QUOTE Thanks
