hi, have you tried to boot in safe mode, it uses genereic vga drivers.
Or you could plug the hard disk on a XP machine and decrypt those folders.

they are just ideas, tell me if they work.

Hey all,

I work as a tech, and I have a problem that I haven't encountered before, and am looking for
ideas.  I have a client who attempted to upgrade the drivers for his graphics card, but somehow
botched it and now his computer won't boot into windows.  I would generally fix the problem by
booting into Knoppix, but he's encrypted all his files using the Windows private folder option in
XP, so that doesn't work.  Does anyone know of any tools and/or procedures that I could use to get
around this, either by decrypting the files via knoppix or by any other means.  If I can't find
anything, I'm going to be forced to tell him to just reformat, which I don't want to do.  Thanks
for your help!
