Trying again to get some help on this one. I purchased a digital card reader and for some reason (stupidity) inserted the drive letter recognition software disk that came with it. I clicked on the wrong answer, obviously.....because now my admin user and all the files that it contained are gone!
I tried a restore to a few days prior to the card reader install, no help or I cannot find it if the fix worked. This a somewhat new pc for me (its used , but new to me) and I did notice there are 2 local drives....not sure if it has always been that way a drive c and a drive e....
Please somebody......give me a hint....I have resume's, family photos and all kind of other stuff I really need out there in space somewhere.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi , If I understand you correctly you are trying to boot up into the admin account and can't ? If so ? Do you have twaek UI install ? If not ? Download that and it has a option to boot your admin account . You can get it from the website below

http://www.microsoft...ppowertoys.mspx

BTW I'm assuming you already try to boot in safe mode but still no account listed .

This site below should help you out , just click on the underline , it will take you there
