well i did it good. In the process of resetting up a home network with 2 added computers for the kids and trying to set security policies on folders I set the c drive to private. At some point I rebooted the computer, or rather tried. I get the cant find auto check error and it just tries to boot endlessly.

I cannot access C: from the recovery console, such as copying reg files to it. I get access denied.
FIXMBR and FIXBOOT didn't work
I can't boot to safe mode
also stuck it in another computer as a slave and ... yep Access DENIED!
I have tried reinstalling windows but I'm guessing it won't let me

I can't believe microsoft is so stupid to let you lock yourself out of your own computer there has to be a way to at least copy off the files,... but then again, it is Microsoft.

God any help would be appreciated.

I'm running XP PRO SP2

Ha! Thought of that too. I was trying to do this without losing data! Abd yes those programmers have a long way to go before they start building good software. MS is riddled with millions of glitches. Thanks.
