I mean, I can see my data and my programs (via Windows explorer). When I sign on to windows using my user-name that Windows asked me to create again (during the last part of the Repair installation) and try to open a word document. It says "Word is not installed for that user."
Using Windows explorer, I can see what might be my old user name with some Hexidecimal hash after it (if it was your user account it would look like "Glen8H6AE7".
There are no documents in my new user Account, but they are all there on disk, but not in this new user account. The old user account like "Glen8H6AE7" is not offered as a choice at sign-on.
Was XP supposed to recognize my old user account and not ask me to create a new user account as the last part of the Repair Installation? Can I copy the old user settings and documents from the "Glen8H6AE7".

As this was my first repair installation, was XP supposed to recognize my old user account and not ask me to create a new user account as the last part of the Repair Installation?
