    There shouldn't be any personal files in Administrator's documents. The Administrator account is intended only for certain cases where it's needed to perform system maintenance, much like *n?x' root account (or it would be, if the other accounts could be limited properly).

    Yeah, but this is just a 'normal' person. She may have used the admin account, as many do, for her personal stuff.

    Could have, but in XP machines the Admin account is hidden from the log in screen, she would have had to do the CTRL ALT DEL twice thingy to get into it.

    That or know enough about her Registry to alter the log in reg key to show it by default.

    If that were the case she wouldn't be having this issue

    True... but I guess the issue is done, no point in arguing semantics now eh?

    Well, i couldn't get the HDD backed up and wiped, so my mom gave it to Ryan, the Acton Computers manager.
    and if i formatted it with fdisk, i would have lost the data i needed to save.
    so... i need to learn how to mount a disk image properly.
    so anyways, thanks for the help.

    Err... mounting is more or less automatic.. it's the burning the ISO that is tricky...
