if it's a stand alone computer you have to add a registry entry, but I'm not 100% sure about what will

happen to the existing encrypted files as this may render them inaccessible. 1. In the Run dialog box, type regedit.exe. 2. Navigate to the subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EFS. 3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. 4. Enter EfsConfiguration for the value name and 1 for the value data to disable EFS (a value of 0 enables EFS). 5. Restart the computer. Export your registry first as a safe guard or add a restore point at a minimum
