Problem with XP & User Names

I have a problem with my User Accounts on me computer. I had multiple user names on my Windows XP. I had a password on MY particular account/name. My Internet Explorer would never work any longer and showed my signs of come back ever. I called a technician and he said it was best that I do a system restart.

Anyways something came up and asked if I wanted to save the files from certain folders or whatever and I chose to. I am on my new restart but I cannot access the files that I had once had on my old User Name. The problem is that it is taking up a lot og GIGs and I am left with like 12 gig out of like 67. Not fair at all. I was wondering.. can anyone out there tell me how to properly retreive my old files or remove them without rebooting my computer again?!? Keep in mind, I STILL know the password.

I'm not an expert on this, but isn't it possible to make a rollback. I used this windowsXP function very often and it worked well very often
I'm not sure if it will help u maybe I understood your problem wrong!

Login with userid administrator, if you do not know the password then create a new user which is member of the administrator group (or has administrator rights).

Users with administrator rights can modify/delete/whatever with any file on your hd

Mostly yeah. But I had a problem before to delete a map. The reason was that the OWNER was not the administrator, witch is a deffualt, it was the user I deleted, so guess if it took me weeks to figure it out to unhook it. Well it can be so if you restrict a folder, then delete the user and forgot to undo it. :P
The thing is to login in with an administrator and signrights. It is neede a pro skills to get it to work. I am a pro, but I not the best man to explain things, so sorry can help you. A tip is to do some research in Microsoft support page.

Aiight, maybe you guys didn't understand my problem. My old user name had as many capabilities as the "OWNER" name. Now, when my computer messed up a while back.. I rebooted it and decided to keep the files from my old User Name. However, this name had a password. Whenever I try to get into these files, I can't. It doesn't even give me the option of entering a password. I tried creating another user name with the same name as before but all it does is add .HOME to the end of it as another.
