    Wondering if someone can shed some light on this for me...

    My brother's PC won't boot up - gets a blue screen advising of some error just as the windows logo comes up.

    I put his HDD into my PC to back up some files before we reformat.

    The problem is that when i go 'c:\docs&settings\profile' i get an error advising access is denied.

    Is there a way I can gain access to this folder. tried accessing through the command prompt - same issue.

    My next resort is to try and repair windows on his drive and hopefully get to the windows start screen - but am wondering if there is an eaiser way

    Thanks heaps
