Since you clicked on System, you will have to contact your IT/network admin, to grant your rights back to this folder, and explain you accidentally hit system to deny access

  3. Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message, if one appears.
  4. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
  5. In the Name list, click your user name, Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group.

    If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the Replace owner on sub containers and objects check box.
  6. Click OK.
    You may receive the following error message, where Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of: You do not have permission to read the contents of directory Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.

Open your 'My Computer' then go to tools and then Folder options. Hit the view tab and under advanced settings uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended). The will then show up under C drive. If you get an accessed denied then right click on the folder and click properties and then the security tab. Click the Add button and add the word everyone. When it shows up under Groups and user names make sure the Full Control Allow is checked.

No security tab in the properties dialogue box of a file

Click on "start" then "My Documents";
click on "Tools" then "Folder Options...";
click on the "View" tab;
scroll down to the bottom;
uncheck "Use simple file sharing (recommended)";
click on "OK".

You should now be able to right-click on a file, click on "Properties", and you should have a "Security" tab.
