    Rename the folders in D&S for the time being. Recreate the accounts you want. Log in as each. Then log back in as administrator and do this...

    Right click on My Computer
    Properties
    Advanced Tab
    User Profiles Settings button
    Select the name of an old profile and click "Copy To"
    enter the path of the new profile that was created.

    Do that for each. That should get you back your old profiles.

    Good Luck buddy!

    ok heres what i did so far. i renamed one of the folders in d&s i coudlnt change the other one because he had a password on his account and it says access is denied, so i renamed my folder and created a new Mike acount. what do you mean by "old profile". maybe my thinking is a little shot because i need the info back on those accounts and in kinda desperate.
