Default Documents can't open


a few days ago by mistake my laptop got reinstalled with Windows XP 64-- instead of just a simple repair modus with WINDOWS XP HOME wich i asked for.

And i was lucky that i made a back-up of a part of the information i had on the laptop the day before, but the guy installed by keep the information of the previous XP installation. So i still have my documents under c:/documentsandsettings BUT i can't open the map ! it says acces is denied

Extra info: At the moment Windows XP PRO is installed and the documents are still under c:/documentsandsettings - The original OS was WINDOWS XP HOME. But i don't have the install cd's atm.
If i would install home edition again does that mean i have acces again to this map ?

I really hope to get the documents back and that someone here can help me.
