    Hi everyone I'm new here and I have a problem.

    I am using Windows XP Media Center Edition with lastest service packs.

    About a few months ago I reinstalled Windows from the recovery partition after having a virus and to get my files back I had to take ownership of my old user in "Documents and Settings" and it seemed to work good with little problems.

    So a couple days ago I had to reinstall Windows from the recovery partition again and when I took ownership of my old user again I had some trouble; I can not move some files to my new "My Documents" folder, and I was able to move "My Pictures" but only some of the pictures are viewable.

    So if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have also attached a picture of the error message.

    Before addressing the specific error you're getting, a more important question is this: are you running an antivirus program and updating it regularly? It seems that you're having to restore from your recovery partition an awful lot. Restoring from the recovery partition is a last-ditch thing when you can't clean a virus....not typically something you do 'just because'. In my experience most viruses can be cleaned much easier than restoring your system.

    Yes, I do use Norton Antivirus, but both time this has happened I wasn't able to even boot into safe mode; so I was kind of forced to recover from the partition.
