My Windows XP computer won't start up.  I connected my hard drive to another XP computer so I could access the one file that I care about.  This file is a Word document.  I was unable to access the My Documents folder at first because my login was password protected.  Using Takeown, I was able to see the contents of the My Documents folder, but I can't open any of the files in there.  When I try to open one I get "user does not have access privileges".  What is my next step?
