Thank you for the sites Trbwst. The permission on the folders were preventing me from accessing the information. I don't know if i might help others, but I found that during the reformat of my computer, the safe mode was disabled/unaccessable. I had to run the built in PC recovery program for my windows xp to gain access to the safe mode. Hope no one else had as much problems as i did, but thank you again for the help!
