Due to a virus, I had to reinistall Windows Xp Pro SP3 but it now denies me access to any files or folders under my previous ID.

 

I know the files and sturcture is still there.

 

There where no indicated problems with the reinstallation.

 

Anyone have a fix?

 

Thanks

If "my files" means My Documents" and all that are in that group...then you need to Take Ownership .

 

If you mean anything other than that...please provide more explicit details on just what is happening and when.

Yes, I did mean "My Documents", and your solution worked.

 

However, I did have to boot in Safe Mode (even with XP Pro Sp3), to accomplish your advice.

 

Thanks much.
