Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 996 MHz / 239 MB
I have had to re-install XP in parallel after a registry problem. The thing thing is:

1) I can find my old files but can't access my old favourites folder (access denied) and
2) Can't find my old e-mails - mostly in Outlook Express but I changed over to Thunderbird and would like to have all these back
3) I would like to clean out all the old programmes etc from the old installation - is there a step by step way of doing this or can I just delete the old stuff from My Computer?

I would have just run a repair. You'll need to take ownership of the files in order to access them. Information here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421

I'd then run a backup of those files and start from scratch. That will make for a cleaner install.
