Are you able to log in at all?

If you're just looking for your personal files, they'll be in this directory.

Open up Windows Explorer and navigate here. C:\winnt\profiles\*yourloginhere*\personal

In that foldter you'll see all of the folders you've created in your environment. You'll see your desktop, your favorites. Monkey around in there to find your files.


Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!

Does anyone else, with admin rights, have access to the computer? This user should be able to change the password for your account.
