    My two kids share a computer with Windows XP. My 18 year old has set it so you need to put in a password to load his profile at startup. Now I can't view his files and folders. Before I have to beat it out of him is there a way I can go in to view his folders, etc.? I have administrator rights as I set up my own profile as well as my other son's on their computer. Thank you for any suggestions.
