    Hello, I am desperately hoping someone can help me!

    I had XP Pro and, because there were multiple admin accounts, I encrypted my
    files by right clicking them > properties > advanced > ecnrypt contents to
    secure data. Anyway, I backed them up before installing Vista but didn't
    decrypt them. Now, I cannot get them to open in Windows Vista Ultimate. I
    have checked that I am the owner and I have full access, but they still do
    not open. Trying to decrypt them doesn't work, either. Does anyone have any
    suggestions?

    Thanks

  3. If you still have access to the XP system, you can export the keys. However
    if you don't you are pretty much done.
