Need HELP quick!
A HP netbook was failing and wouldn`t boot. So I opened it up and took out the harddrive and connected it to my desktop. Thankfully I can retrieve the files but all the folder and files are locked to the 'admin' of the hp netbook. So it won't let me copy it onto my desktop.

How can I quickly remove admin or give my desktop admin on all the files to copy it over onto my desktop?

Download a ISO of Linux ( Ubuntu would be the best choice ) and boot off of the LiveCD then get your files that way.
