Default I need help

*Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, pretty new here*

Well unfortunatly, I ran out of time to activate Windows Media Center on my computer and seeing as how I used my dad's CD on my computer to load it, the serial number would not activate it. Well, I accidently logged off and now it will not let me back on.

I put a regular Windows XP Home Edition on an empty partition on my computer in an attempt to recover all of my files from Media Center and I always get the Access Denied error message when I try to view the files via My Computer.

Is there any way that I can access my files from the new partition or get into my old account to back my files?

Thanks,

Monster

It was my dad's CD, so I don't think that they would condone the same CD being used on two different computers.
