I'm not sure how it happened but I turned the pc on after my dad was on and when it logged on it had the windows classic taskbar. The drivers for the modem and audio card where somehow uninstalled and all system restores where gone. Windows where freezing easily or would take a long time to pop up, even the msconfig window froze when I would click apply. I proceded to reinstall windows and not format since I have files I want to keep. It said it would delete the old windows files and install new ones and keep my files. Now I have a new setup of XP with my old XP username files still there, but I don't know how to get back to the log in screen for those usernames. Biggest problem is not being able to get to the files because there password protected. I have gotten around this with administrator once before and gained access to a passworded folder but I'm not sure how I did and would rather not have to set everything up again. Last time I reinstalled windows I did it the same way and it just came up with the same log in screen with the old usernames and all the settings where the same, This time it asked me to make new screen names and I did, not sure if I would've been able to just click continue.
I only have one partition so I'm wondering how can I go back to those old usernames?
If not how do I set the access for the folders so I can copy over the files?
Also how do I adjust my screen from lagging when I scroll, if I remember correctly its set like that when you first install?
If its possible to uninstall this XP, how do I do it?
