I am new to programming and am using Allen Downey's How to Think Like a Programmer, 2nd Edition Python edition to start learning.  I am having trouble viewing the pydoc graphic on a local host.  I know this is not necessarily a Python question, but I would appreciate any advice that can be provided.
I am using Windows 7
I am on chapter 10 and trying to graphically view the Python Index of Modules on local host 7464. 
When attempting to do this in the command line I receive a windows error.
Here is the end of the message I receive:
File "C:\Python26\Lib\pkgutil.py", line 211, in iter_modules for fn in os.listdir<path>:
WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied:  '.\\Application Data/*.*'
I thought that I may not have root access to the folders in question, but I have gone through and given myself administrative access to all documents in the c:\python26 directory, and I am still receiving this error.
Thanks for any help that you can provide!
