Try running
attrib -s -h -r "%windir%"

before that line.

Good Luck, Ayush.

Thanks for reply

Unfortunately that give the same error:-

Access denied - C:\Windows

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium - would that make any difference
to Win XP?

I have no problem viewing windows folder in Windows Explorer

You have to run the command prompt as the administrator... Not using Vista,
so I'm not sure exactly how you'd go about this. Also don't know if it will
do what you want either.
