Hey. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it! The problem is with a Windows 2000 PC.

I accidentally deleted a username i was currently logged in as. it happened because i was deleting old user names on an office PC. i can log in as administrator and see the user's files under documents and settings/*user*, but those files are only that user's "My Documents". I am mainly concerned with accessing email and ACT! files stored somewhere on the hard drive specifically for that user name. however, i need to do it from the administrator login because the said username is deleted. i tried re-creating the username just through the "Users" tool in the control panel, but that didn't work. any suggestions? PLEASE HELP!!!

There is not much you can do, you can create the users account then try to take ownership of the files & folders.
