Last night my computer crashed, when I rebooted I found I was unable to gain access to curant files in the C:\Documents and Settings\user\ path, I checked the ownership for these files and it is fine. Im starting to think it has something to do with the windows encryption, when I try to UN-encrypt (or change for read only ECT) files curtain files I receive this message "An error occurred applying attributes to file: <file> Access is denied". It has also effected all the profiles for applications - word ect, opera book marks and msn profiles. I am really at a lost about what to next, I have not reinstalled windows, changed my password.
Many thanks for your help!
