  • Need help accessing windows XP account.

    What Operating System and Service Pack level are you using? - XP home

    Are you in a Workgroup or in an Active Directory domain environment? - Workgroup

    What was the exact error message that you received? - C:\Documents and Settings\admin is not accessible.....access is denied

    Do you have current backups? - no

    What is the problem?-

    I had windows on working fine untill i got some worm or somthink that deleted some of my files which stoped my windows firewall from working. I then tryed reinstalling them and it didnt work, i restarted my computer and as it started to load windows up it just kept restarting the computer, over and over again.

    So i reinstalled windows xp home ontop of itself. I then go into my computer, C:\Documents and Settings\ and then the admin folder as that was my account but it wont let my gain access. I think its cause it was passworded? if so i do know the password and is ther any way round it.

    Why do i need it?

    Need to gain access to this cause it has all my websites im building on, passwords, accounts for my hosting customers ect ect.

    If someone could help me asap that would be great.

    Many thanks

    Need a clarification. Were the folders password protected or encrypted?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        If the profile was encrypted then i think you've lost your stuff.

        As far as i know there is no way to beat the encryption used.

        (Someone will now come along and prove me wrong)

            If thats the case then all you need to do is to take ownership of the folders your require.
