Guest Obscurus Posted February 21, 2005 Share Posted February 21, 2005 Hello,I don't have much time for an introduction (well, it's my first post here, right?), because I have a BIG trouble...Access to the operating system (Windows XP, FAT32, Primary) on my mother's laptop is completely disabled. How did that happen? Well, the thing is that there was some problems installing software, because somewhy the administrator access wasn't global, so when I was at school my mother was phoning friends to help her and someone told her to check some boxes in Windows XP users section (where you can see who are administrators, add passwords, check access, etc.), which as I guess now was a complete access disable to selected users (all users (including administrator) were checked). So now it's impossible to access the system with any of users (including administrator), system says "Access is Disabled". There are a lot of VERY important information! We must access it to at least copy it to an USB.I have few ideas, like trying to install one more operating system and gaining access with the new one to the main (the one which is currently blocked), but I'm not sure about that... I could partition the HDD with fdisk, but will it be possible to access the main block (where WinXP is installed) from another partition (think about Primary/Logical/etc)... What do you think? Maybe there is a simplier way?And by the way, on this computer I'm using Windows 98SE, so it won't be possible to check something inside, if needed...Please, help us to solve this problem...
