To do some maintenance on my daughters laptop I added myself as a user so I wouldn't have to keep bothering her for her password. Everything went smoothly, and I shut off the laptop when finished. The very next time she booted it up, her name was not listed as a user, and my own name was there as administrator. I tried to restore her settings (desktop pic, etc) but have not been able to do so. I went into the C drive to see if I could retrieve her My Documents folder from there, in the folder simply named 'administrator', and got the blurb, "Access is denied".
I downloaded Dial-a-fix to try to fix it through the policies option, but that didn't work either. I actually tried it twice. So how do I get back those files for my daughter? She's devastated ... and very upset with me!
Also ... I guess full administrator rights isn't necessarily what I'm looking for, I just need to be able to retrieve her personal files from the 'administrator' folder on the C drive, if I can just do that, I'm good to go. HELP!!!
