recently our computer wouldnt start up, it just went to the windows exp screen and restarted itself, so we got a new hard drive and turn into the main drive, and have access to the old one. problem is the old user files cant be accessed because they are still password protected. we cant change or remove them because they are on the old hard drive so we cant access them from the control panel.. any help would be appreciated

Did you use encryption on the old drive? If not with the old driv emounted you should be able to copy it to the new drive.

to have access to the folders of the old user you have to take posesion of them.
In menu tols, folders options, label view, simple shared use of archives (off)
and after that right click in the folders you whant to take posesion, properties, security, advanced options, propietor, to replace proprietor in subcontainers(on) and that'll works
