I imagine you have tried it already, but the machine admin account should be able to open anything on the machine. If you still can't get in, you can look into re-setting security using this admin account.

As above - the Administrator account should have access to all user profiles in Documents and Settings. However, if you have reinstalled, then you (Administrator) will need to take ownership of the folders in the profile then add the Administrator account to the security.

Follow the instructions given here:

The instructions are in English.

Good luck
