I have a pc that I lost all the passwords. I tried the reset tools and it did not work.
I plugged the hd onto my other pc as a slave. However I can't do anything after I successfully hook it up. It says "access denied" when I click on the user folder in the document settings.

How can I enable that?

What you might need to do is set permissions.  If it won't let you do that, you may need to Take Ownership of the folders & files.  Then you should be able to set the permissions.  If this is XP Home, you will have to do all this from safe mode.

To set permissions, right click on a folder & select properties.  Click on the security tab.  Make sure the administrators group is in there with full control.  Click on the Advanced button for applying to subfolders & files...and taking ownership.

Here is a link from MS

Make sure you turn off Simple File Sharing if XP Pro
