Hi,

I came up with the need for an old
file, from a desktop, that I had to
sacrifice to Internet sabotage.

I was poking through all the users
desktops, from past installs, and one
of the users, is inaccessible to me.

It's not anything that ought to be
critical, but it bothers me, that an
old user is still either active, or
locked away from me.

I haven't tried deleting it, but
as I recall, that is easier said, than
done.

Thanks,
Ken .

In XP Home you have to boot in safe mode to see the security tab. In XP Pro
you have to disable simple file sharing.
