duplication and Unacessible user profile

Discussion in 'Windows XP Help' started by Denis Gantelet, Dec 13, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    xp as create many user profiles for the same account in doc&settings and
    even this the admin rights I can't manage to get into the old versions where
    I assume some data is left.

    I assume as well the computer is not infected by virus / spywares and worns
    since I scan and update regulary ad ware and avg.

    My question is
    Why xp creates multiple profile for the same user?
    How can I get into the old doc&settings directory profiles to extract and
    remove usefull info still present in there?

    Thanks for you response

    Franck

    In XP Home you have to boot in safe mode to see the security tab. In XP Pro
    you have to disable simple file sharing.
