C:\documents and settings\myprofile is not accessible...Access is denied error when trying to read Corrupted Windows data. The HD is connected to a working computer as a slave device.

My computer was running Windows XP won't boot. It flashes a blue screen quickly. I see the words "system dump", "call administrator" and registry error". I pulled out the hard drive and put it in another computer in hopes of accessing 'My Documents' to retrieve my data. When I attempt to navigate to the new drive, E:\documents and Settings\myprofile while on the new computer, I get an error that says, "C:\documentsandsetting\myprofile is not accessible...Access is denied". Is my data lost forever? The 'myprofile' profile is password protected. Again, the HD is connected to a working computer as a slave device. I am able to access everything else on the hard drive fine, but my important data is stored under this profile is not accessible. Any suggestions are appreciated. I will be more than happy to elaborate. Thanks in advance.
