Let's put the computer in clean boot state and check if any third-party program is causing this issue.
Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may have to contact the program manufacturer for any updates or uninstall and re-install the program.
Here's the article you may refer to for steps with reference to the same.

Use this link if you are using Windows XP:
How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state
Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to put the computer to start as usual as mentioned here:
To configure Windows to use a Normal startup state
After you used the clean boot to resolve your problem, you can follow these steps to configure Windows XP to start normally.

a. Click Start, and then click Run.
b. Type msconfig, and then click OK. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
c. Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK.
d. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

When i click on folder lock it gives me a msg as you may not have appropriate permissions to acess the item.

This is generally a preset feature in later operating systems. If you continue the operation, you should be prompted to grant yourself permission to access the folder and windows will no longer ask you for rights afterward.
If you are on a networked computer, you will have to ask the owner to give you permission to the folder you are requesting access to, because it is a security feature.
