See alice,
What you actually wanted to do is to make an account which you can only use right? But unfortunately you have made an administrator account rather than making an user account. So now the pc ultimately blocked everything which was bieng used by the old administrator and have reset the desktop for a new administrator use.... Now i suggest you to go to c/documents n settings and search and write the imp files to a cd from there as well as from the other drives.......THEN ULTIMATELY format the computer.... hope this wil help you if u know to format and if your boss is a kind person....

Guess a little less and learn the OS (it sounds like Windows XP) you plan to operate, take copious notes if only as a study aid and/or incentive to use a dedicated text editor like NoteTab, or type into your phone, or at least take consistent, readable notes for your own use.

Go find a book or 20 on Windows XP, maybe David Pogue's Missing Manual, and read it. Maybe just use the index to learn about switching users and get a better idea what you have done so far, for starters.

Additionally, you should consider a lifestyle where you plan things you can actually do, and do them; rather than faking it and asking people to guess what kind of hot water you climbed into.

Hi Mofya,

HINT: your presario may not really be a V2000. My fiance's V2000 is actually a V2402AU. Try searching for the drivers for that model instead.
