  1. I just installed a new mobo and CPU and I had to make a new user when I installed windows. Which is fine, but how do I get into my old account where all my documents are? Its not on the user list in administrative tools, but its in documents and settings, I just can't access it. Any ideas?

    Can you just log out of your new account,and then log in to your old account with the name and password you gave it ?

    The default names for accounts are Administrator and User,with no passwords.

    Sorry, I geuss I thought that sticky reffered to something else...

    And When I log in, there is only one icon. I geuss I should have switched it over to normal log in screen (the sign in one) and got into my admin profile. Or I could go into Safe mode and do it that way. I just thought I could at least see who was a user on this computer from My profile since i have admid properties. But Yah ill try that, and if that doesnt work ill go read that Bypass thing
