I just had to take a hard drive out of a broken XP machine and installed it into a working XP machine. Problem is I cannot get into my C:\documents and settings\myfolder

I had a password on my folder. I know about ownership in a domain but this is a stand alone computer not connected to a domain.

Any ideas??
