    Ok I have a BIG problem i hope someone can help me with. Alright at first my floppy drive was not working, I tought it might be some system files missing so i did the system recovery thing by pressing F10 at the booting screen. Now my problem is that my original desktop had a password on it, I remember my password and everything but now i cant get access to my original desktop file in documents and settings,every time i click on it the message (Access is denied) pops up, is there any thing i can do to get access to it. please help!!! Oh by the way my my OPS is XP.

    Hi,

    I advice you to logon with the administrator user.
    Right on the folder you can't access, select the Security tab and have look to the different authorizations.

    Im on the administrator but what is the security tab? I've tried to move the file but again (access is denied) pops up. I think its because i had a password on my user account when i restored my computer,.
