ps: What started all this was that my Mac crashed... My running programs all froze so I did a forced-shutdown then restarted, but no longer could boot into my Admin. At all times I've been able to launch other accounts. How to repair a damaged acc't? Thanks!

Niel, help, please!
When i give myself RW access to the folder that's all I've gotten into. Right? Just the folder. Have you had such access extend to *anything* inside the folder? What I'm finding is that every folder and subfolder in the acc't is marked with the same red slash circle saying "no access"!!! I can continue to change the access for each of these, but -- no, there's not enough time. I need a better, real fix. Any ideas? Thanks!
It's weird to me -- I've changed the status of that acc't from admin to standard. I have a second admin acc't now. Why isn't ALL of the old admin acc't open to me? Oh well...

PS: I googled a bit and solved one of my questions myself: Niel's advice is incomplete if you run into the problem that I did. You need to go to the little gear icon at the bottom of the Permissions pane in the Comm-I window. There you can select 'include enclosed' or something like that -- then all folders within a folder will also get their permission changed. I didn't know to do that until after an hour of further googling. So now I can access those files from the new admin.
I'd still REALLY like to know if it's possible to "revive" a User Acc't that isn't launching.
