Hello, while working on a computer I found a few Trojans and the OS was corrupted. I wanted to retrieve the data off the hard drive so I could do an erase and restore. However when I try to access say Documents and Settings I get a "dont have security permission." When I make the fold allow my computer as a administrator it lets me in. then I have to do it to every folder until I get to a file. Then if I try to copy it or even open the files I get the security permissions and add my computer but it doesn't let me do anything. Any ideas would be great thanks.
