MS Windows XP Prof + SP2 - Encryption Problem RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Dear anyone who cares to listen,


    I have Win XP Prof SP2 running and decided to try the encryption facility on some files ... mistake !


    After doing this, the next week, my system started blue screening and windows startup going into a perpetual loop.


    It never got to the stable windows and kept looping.


    The only way out was to re-instal windows and I think I used a different admin name when doing so. Not sure what one I originally used anyway.


    However, I now cant open the original encrypted files.


    Is there any way round this in XP; a facility I'm unaware of, or is there a tool out there in windows or lala land that I am not aware of.


    Any help would be exceptionally groovy.
