    You mean to say that you have a dual boot system, XP and 98? When you where in 98 you went into the XP partition and deleted the Windows folder? That would take some time to delete, mine is 2GB. Why not go the recycle bin and restore the folder?

    Something is wrong with this explanation. If the WinXP install was deleted from Win98, that means that Win98 was accessing an NTFS partition, which it can't do.

    In any case, the way to get access to a folder where "access is denied" is to log in as an administrator, go to the security tab for the affected folder (right click, select preferences, select security tab) and take ownership of the folder. Then change the security permissions to get access.

    This can only be done as an administrator.
