How can I get my protected files back?

My motherboard died, and now I need to hook the harddrives up to another PC to get the data off. Problem: Some of it was in the "My Documents" folder, and I can't get to it without being logged on to an admin account. I have no way of doing that, since I can't boot from the old windows installation anymore. [more inside]

What can be sent as a present to an 8 years old kid recovering in a hospital from serious cardiac surgery?

This 8 years old kid came from Madrid, Spain to New York where he was treated for a serious cardiac problem at Mount Sinai. He had surgery and is recovering well. He will leave the ICU soon and a group of friends from Madrid wanted to send him some kind of present to cheer him up. I don't actually know the kid. But a friend of mine is part of said "group of friends" and they asked me to figure out what can be done. Hire a magician? send him a bunch of toys? books? a stripper? all of the above? I suppose the stripper would be a bad idea, what with blood pressure and all that. But I'm sure there are plenty of "special surprises" and original ideas for his age group and health condition. Oh, and he speaks both english and spanish, so language shouldn't be an issue.

Accidentally wrote over a file I really, really need!

I just know I can't be the first person to ever do this, but I haven't been able to find an answer. I religiously back up my files from my local drive to my network every day, but it appears that yesterday, while I was in a hurry, I actually copied the files from my network drive down to my local drive, thus overwriting a very full day of work on one particular file. Is there anyway I can get back the version that was stored on my local drive or am I, as I fear, screwed? Also, when I try to search my local drive for all the files with the same extensions (*.as) in hopes that I actually just saved it in the wrong place, Windows XP tells me I have no files with that extension, even though I can see that I do. Is it possible that my problems are bigger than my own incompetence?

Unknown Backup Format - Just a README file.

I'm trying to access some old backup CDs and can't remember what backup program I used to create them. The only thing Windows can see on the CDs is a README.txt file that says: "This disc is a backup CD. Except for this file the contents of this disc must be accessed using your backup software." The rest of the data is invisible and presumably in a proprietary backup format. I followed this advice to no avail. Anybody know what backup program I used back then?

Unintelligent Hard Drive Enclosure design?

I screwed up and plugged the wrong power supply into a hard drive enclosure. After the sickly smell of fried electronics wafted up to my nose, I freaked out, unplugged everything, and disassembled the enclosure. The electronics controlling the enclosure? All fine. The hard drive, not so much. One of the IC's on the drive's controller PCB is fried. My question -- is this normal design for a hard drive enclosure? It seems to me that if the enclosure recieves incorrect voltages, it would be common sense to design some failsafe idiot-proofing to keep said incorrect voltages from reaching and frying the drive.

booting issues

I was messing around with nlite and ended up making some sort of change to my computer that I just can't figure out. All is basically well except for one thing--- Every time I boot the computer the first menu says something like "Press 'R' for Standard System Recovery Options " and then Press 'F' for reformmting the drive and Q to quit if i hit R i go to the recovery utility HAVEN'T tried F for obvious reasons and Q seems to read the boot ini file. when i hit Q, my normal boot process works and All is OK. However all subsequent reboots give me that same R, F and Q menu and I'd like to get back to just booting in to Windows. Can anyone offer some advice as to how to tell the computer that all is well? i wouldn't want a family member to reboot the computer and select the wrong option. I'm running Windows XP MCE.
