hi.hope someone can help.i recently decided to keep my files and folders private and ticked the relevant box on the sharing and security tab.however, when i logged back on i found that i had a completely new profile and could'nt access the previous one.at the login screen it was the same user names there as before.anyway i tried the same thing again and ticked the privacy box and the same thing happened again.so now on the documents and settings there are three profiles of mine but i can only access one.anyone know whats happening or what i can do?thanks.
i am using win XP pro with SP2.
