Hi,

I have Windows XP home edition installed on my computer. I had to reinstall
Windows XP as I couldn't start the XP and would get blue screen saying -
Registry file failure: SystemRoot\System32\Config\Security is absent, corrupt
or cannot write to it.

I reinstalled on my second hard drive with a hope that I could recover files
that were saved on my first hard drive. I recovered some of them, however
files that were saved under my user name and on a desktop are not accessible
- C:\Documents and Settings\Igor is not accessible.

I would appreciate if anyone could tell me how to recover files that were
saved on a desktop and under my user name.

Thank you

Igor

How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP

In XP Home you have to boot in safe mode to see the security tab. In
XP Pro you have to disable simple file sharing.

Hi,

I cannot reboot in safe mode, last good configuration, etc........I get
asked to reboot in safe mode, but after I select it I get a blue screen with
the error mentioned earlier.
