Here's the story.

For the past weeks, I've been working on my final works due for this week at University, and I had this virus that completely blocked my PC from logging in XP. So I used "Safe Mod" in order to scan my computer, but then, when I deleted all the infected files, my PC just wouldn't work anymore, and now I'm in a huge problem, and I need somebody's help.

I took off the hard drive, and put it on my father's computer, but the password on my personal files are blocking me (I just can't open the "User" folder). I know there's a way to get in there without having to delete my password, but I don't know how... Can somebody help me find a way to force my way in the folder?

UPDATE I'VE FOUND A WAY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. THANKS ANYWAYS :D.

Well I would have done so myself, but I was hoping to persuade people that figure those fixes to provide the solution so that future users with similar issues would know. ;)
