What is the make and model of this computer?

 

What operating system are you running?

Are they just TrueCrypt containers? Don't forget that a factory restore will wipe all docs, pics etc etc from the system.

 

Just a long shot .... Are they by any chance TrueCrypt hidden operating systems (explained here: http://www.truecrypt.org/docs/?s=hidden-operating-system ) if so it could be more complicated to do a factory restore as you may have over-written that partition when creating the hidden o/s

Go to True Crupt and follow their instructions to remove the encryption and then uninstall True Crypt form the add or remove programs (in XP), or Uninstall or change a program (Windows Vista), or Uninstall a program (Windows 7) in the Control Panel.

 

When posting a problem it is often useful to know the make and model of the computer in question. :thumbup2:
