First - check the file/folder permissions.

Read *carefully* - do not just skim the page and start following
steps. There is important information there dependent on the
version of Windows XP


Second - did you follow 'Encrypting File System Best Practices'?

Last - did you happen to change your logon password by any means as of late?
