file recovery from another hard drive..

i have a maxtor harddrive which has windowx xp pro installed on it, but has recently failed to load windows.. i am trying to recover a few important files from the desktop folder on the hard drive but, comes up with an error message saying access denied.

this is because that account has a password on it, how can i get around this?
