Hello :thumbsup: I totally messed up my computer. Windows would not boot up. I tried to restore to a useable point to no avail. So I used the disc that came with the pc to try and put back the file that was missing but it did a complete re-install of windows. which was fine because now it was up an running, my problem is that I can access my old documents from my old account becasue it put them in documents and settings, but my boyfriend had his own windows accoun with a password and he wasn't sharing his documents with mine becasue there were files that he (and I) didn't want our kids seeing :flowers: Now I can't access these files to either delete or back them up. because everytime I try to windows keeps saying ACCESS DENIED. Is there anyway I can access them even if it's only to delete them?

I have Windows XP media centre edition. :trumpet:
