  1. Hey i need some serious help..
    I recently just reinstalled my windows XP -home edition on my computer but opted to keep a back up file of everything that was on my computer beforehand..
    But now i am unable to access those files. It comes up with a "access is denied" message whenever i try to open them...How do i access the files?
    As you have already guessed by now, i am a complete and utter noob when it comes to this i apologise now.
    Any help is really appreciated!

    Thank you!
