Guys, I found the answers and they are good.
I thought about it and I feel it is not a good idea to have this topic answered as it may be considered "hacking" which is against forum policy as well as my own.

It's no secret. In Windows Explorer, go to <Drive Letter>:\Documents and Settings and right click on the username folder. Select Properties, Security, Advanced and then the Owner Tab. Change owner to the username that you're logged in as and also check Replace owner on suncontainers and objects. You should now have access to your files. You need to boot into Safe Mode if it's XP Home.
