    My computer crashed on me the other day and was giving me the following message "cannot start because the System32\DRIVERS\pci.sys is corrupt "

    After trying everything I ended up reinstalling Win XP on another folder in the C Drive

    I am trying to copy all my old files to an external hard drive so I can save them but I keeP getting this message telling me that the access to the file is denied or that it is in use.

    I am logged in as the administrator (there are no other users in my computer) and still I can not copy them

    Any suggestions?
    Please help me. all my family pictures and my work files as well as my contacts are there

    Thanks in advance
