Hi to all! I'm newbie to the forum.
I have a terrible problem with best friends PC. I change security policies to her Hard Drive (C) in Safe Mode using Administrators account (Not her account). I delete all the users that cant use C:/ (including System), and made her the only user that can have access to the drive. Then i reboot the PC and windows came up with blue screen that wrote "Autochk exe not found. Skiping auto check" and restarted in loop. The same happens in Safe Mode. I tried to copy Autochk exe from an operating Windows XP disk to C:/ but it can't be done (I don't have access to C:/). Does anyone know how can i solve this?

Please help its not my PC!!
Thanks in advance

I'm not sure that you are going to be able to resolve this easily. If you have another system, you could try creating a user with the same username and password as the one for this system, then physically plugging the hard drive in to that system, and hopefully you should then be able to access the drive when logged in as the new user.

Thanks for your reply. Saying "physically plugging " you mean through USB?

If you have a suitable converter to plug it in via USB, then that should work. I was thinking though about physically putting it in another machine and connecting via IDE/SATA (sepending on the drive).
