Well to start off.. im a newbie at this forum. Im looking for some options regarding the current trouble that I have for my desktop PC. :)

to start my story:

Just recently, i tried to fix my desktop because it had too may bugs and viruses. I was able to fix a few but still there are some that needs advanced configuration like changing values for the registry and all. So to cut the story short, i messed up with one of the registry regarding winlogon and because of that i cant boot up again :) . Anyway, because i need this desktop working again ASAP, i reformatted a part of my HDD(its has 2 partitions, 1 for local disk for os 1 for backups and installers). So, i deleted the backups partition and reinstalled windows HOME ed.

Now, there's no trouble with the newly installed OS. The trouble is, whenever i try to check my other partition, i only get to see my folders on My Documents but im not able to open them up. Is this because the prev OS that i had was win Pro? I was wondering, is there any bypass or hijack for this just so i can copy some files from that.

hope someone can answer my question.

--btw.. cool and informative site :) (kudos to the people behind it) :)
