Hopefully, someone will help you. I believe that once you formatted and re-install the O/S, you locked yourself out. The encrytion key was tied to the original SID. It's a unique identifier for each user. Even though you created a similar account, it gives you a different SID. Unless someone more ingenius than me helps...it's bye, bye. Sorry. Hope someone helps you. :-)

Try logging on as the Admin and change the ownership of the files.

Not sure if this works, but heard it sometimes does.
