I used the HP recovery partition to restore my HP Pavillion Media Center m7330n desktop computer to remove a virus. The computer was purchased in 2005 and is running Windows XP Home version. After the recovery process, I cannot access my files that were in the Administrator account. This has happened before, so now I have a series on Administrator accounts with various extensions. When I try to access these accounts, I get a message that states: C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator is not accessible. Access is denied. I know the old password, but I do not know how to access the files. Files that were in the "Guest" account that was not password protected were not affected. I think all my files are still there. Is there a way to access them.
Thanks for your help.
