    Hey Bubbabear64, thanks for responding to my question. The device is Dell. But when ever i click anyone of my icons or documents it will not let me enter them. it will always say,Windos cannot access the specified device, path, or file. you may not have permission to access the item. Thanks again.

Its possible that there is an admin policy in your computer not allowing you to do anything. The other option could be that there is a virus in your computer.

Do you have an anti virus program to scan for viruses?

Is your user id set for admin privileges?
