Please provide some pertinent details about your effort..."can't access" doesn't explain very much about what you did...and why.

Thanks Roodoo.  That's what I used.  But there is another way via My Computer Manager/Local users and groups, in XP.  I guess you have to part of a user groupt to see it.
