1. Don't touch that that hard disk. Put a new one in and install to that.

2. Now add the old hard disk and copy your files out.

a. Look up XP TAKE OWNERSHIP on google.
b. This is CHEAP compared to data recovery fees.

Let's try simple?

In reply to: help

Let's say your files are still on the machine but you can't find them.

Did you search for them?

Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

Now that we can use.

In reply to: help

Boot safe mode and create a NEW user account. See google if you don't know how.

Now use your new account.

If you log into your new account with no errors, type XP TAKE OWNERSHIP to learn about that but your old files are still on the drive (I'll take bets they are!) So now you explore to those and copy them to your new account.

Sorry, no. I know of no way to fix corrupt accounts.

In reply to: ?

That would be in the Desktop directory of the old user...

In reply to: Hint:

i know how to get on to the directory but what folder would the destop be in?

Collapse -
That directory is called Desktop.

In reply to: where?

And it's in the users Documents and Setting.

I don't even think it's hidden, but maybe it is. Then set the folder options (in Control Panel) to show hidden files and folders also. Start with searching for your 'own' folder.
