Question Hidden files...

Hi, for some reason or another i changed the attributes of My Documents to hidden, i quickly realised what i had done and unchecked the option. But now the programs associated with My Documents won't work. For example, itunes won't open it says 'The itunes Music Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file'. I have located this file and it is no longer hidden. Utorrent will not do any down/uploading, comes up with error message 'error opening C:\Documentsandsettings\JEdwards\mydocuments\downl oads\...'
I have tried a system restore and that had no effect, i can re-install itunes and re-installing utorrent might fix it but i'd prefer to just sort out the problem from the source.
Thanks.
