    Ok, i've been reading A LOT of forums and calling a lot of people, and asking the Geek Squad guys at my job (I work at BestBuy), and so far I have NOT been able to fix this problem..

    Mobo: Asus M2N32-SLI DELUXE
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 FX-62
    RAM: 4Gig
    HD: 320 Gig Partitioned (C: Windows XP) (J: Windows 7)
    GPU: NVidia 9800 GTX+

    About 3 months ago I was running into some security issues with 7. I was unable to transfer some files between my C: drive with XP on it. I was able to resolve this issue by going under the properties of the drive, security tab, then add permission.
    No other issues came up untill about a month ago. It completely denied me access to my C drive. Not only in Vista, but also when i reboot in XP I cannot access it.

    Some fixes:
    Used CMD prompt Net User Administrator /active:yes
    Gave complete permissions to Administrator and my other user (Scott)
    Gave complete permissions to Guest
    Have turned on ALL file sharing options

    Nothing is working.

    I can completely modify, access, adjust and delete anything from Vista to the C: drive.
    Once I reboot in XP i cannot do anything. I can only run programs. Every time i try to access the C drive i get the "Access Denied" error.

    I want to continue to use 7 But im getting VERY frustrated with it locking me out of everything. Can someone please help me?
