okay, yeah... i reinstalled windows, after a strange venture with video card drivers, disabling the defualt monitor, stupid. To make it worse, i had a couple school papers in my documents, so i have the folder still in my HDD, but the problem is that it is locked, is there any program you guys know of for unlocking and ''acess denied'' folder?
if u used a different name cant you go to windows partition->documents and settings and then find your old account?
Try hitting F8 while booting up to put windows in safe mode, logon as administrator and try to get it out then. Save it elsewhere where you can get it.

When I had that problem I downloaded this http://www.winternals.com/products/repairandrecovery/erdcommander2002.asp?pid=erd Booted it up with the CD and copied the files I wanted into my new user account.
