I have a lenovo y410 with windows vista premium

try loading or running another copy of Vista on the hard drive, this will overwrite the former but don't format the drive. this will copy ur work into a folder called "window.old", when you are through, go to this folder and transfer ownership of the folse,subfolder into the new administrator. this will not open the files until you click on the properties of every files, goto security, change the owenership to the new administartor, then allows ful acess to the file. NOTE, Installing new Vista program automatically overwrite old adminstartor, but not the files in it. Good luck
