My PC crashed, error reported that the system config file was corrupted, so i repaired it using Windows Repair Console and backup sys config file. PC started up fine but my old owner account was made "Read Only" and hidden. I can't drag and drop files on my desktop (or anywhere else either, i think) and folder properties are all "Read Only". If I try to change that, it appears to change, but as soon as I look again, it's changed BACK to "Read Only". Any file operations like move, copy, or transfer has to be done by contextual menu "Copy" and "Paste".
Any suggestions? Thank you.
Windows XP Home, SP3
