Hi,
I am trying to decrypt some files in Vista. These files have been moved from an XP machine as before it is to be reimaged. When I do I get the message "You will need to provide administrator permission to chanage these attributed', I click on continue but get an access denied message. I have disabled UAC snd restarted but this message still occurs.

Hi Pseudonamia,

You'll need an encryption certificate from the original PC to Decrypt these files. If you don not have it, you'll have to search for sum decrypting 3rd party tool. They're usually expensive.

Cheers.
