    It looks like you've managed to make a mess. There are instances where one simply needs to let go and re-format. If the data is VERY important you could open up the laptop case, get the HD out, insert it as a slave on a working Vista machine, and try to use some 3rd-party EFS cracking tool. However since you've also used the Acer encryption tool I do not know what to say.

      No it won't. But you may very well find out that since the files were encrypted with EFS and the Acer stuff - you won't be able to read them. You will then need to find a 3rd-party tool that'll crack the EFS encryption, and perhaps to crack the Acer stuff before that.
