    Hello all,
    I slaved my dead laptop's hd to my desktop pc. When I try to get into my
    documents and other programs, I get an "access denied". I can get into my
    wife's profile (no pw). Is there anyway I can remove the PW on the slaved
    drive?
    Many thanks in advance.

    No, but you can take ownership when logged in as administrator.

    I don't think I can actually log in because I'm just in Windows Explorer.
    Thanks, Mitchell
