Question Kubuntu: Browsing Windows shared folders

Hello all,

I have Kubuntu 12.10 and Windows XP. On Windows I have my entire hard drive shared as "C$". Using smb4k, I am able to mount and browse most of the Windows machine. However, there are some folders (my user's documents folder, Program Files, etc...) which I am able to browse to but are blank. I am assuming this is because of some user authentication. I have set the default user and password properly but despite this, the folders are still blank.

Does anyone have any ideas?
