I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have several reports from a database that I have built for my boss to see different views of work progress. She currently copies and pastes to put them in Excel.

I'd like to provide her with a button she can click to Export everything to Excel for her. She is not the most tech-savvy, so showing her how to do it within Access is not a feasible option (she'd just ask me to show her every time she needed to do it).

Thanks in advance!

A:Solved: Access 2007: Creating a Button to allow user to export report to Excel

In Form design Mode the Form "Button Wizard" will create the button for you.
The fourth item on the "button sub menu" is Report Operations and on the right hand side the last option is Send Report to File.
You then select the report that you want and then "Output to MS Exel"

A:Solved: Prompt for user password in MS Access vba

ctwest, sorry for the delay in responding, but Access questions are best posted on the Business Applications forum, even though yours is a programming question.
If you haven't found an answer to this question yet, you do not need to prompt users for their password to identify them.
Access knows who they are when they have logged on, you can identify them using the CurrentUser or Application CurrentUser.

Create a password for your account and lock the desktop when you're not using it. If he doesn't have access to Windows he can't change anything.

If he needs access to the system, create a limited account for him. This type of account won't be able to create new accounts.

I have used the same password on my user account ( Administrator) since purchase of Vista in Feb 2008 and decided to change it but although I am certain I have typed in the password absolutely correctly when I try to make the change it says my password is incorrect.

It is just a home Computer.

I haven't logged off today because if I do I expect I will be denied access and I have a few personal documents in the User account that I need daily access to.

I lock computer by pressing WinKey+L or just wait few minutes and it start screensaver and lock itself. The problem exists ONLY when screen saver is running (tried third party screensavers and ones that were built in by Microsoft - no difference).

One thing to remember about Access is that you must forget Excel to take advantage of how Access works. Making Items Access Field names may restrict how you can evaluate your data, it is usually better to have the Items as individual Records.
Your attempt at the Query is pretty good, although I would probably have split the Date Field in to Month and Year Columns. Also you can leave the original Date field in the Query for displaying purposes.
Are you sure that the date showing as ##### is not due to the column being too narrow to display correctly?

Developers created an application using C # and .Net.
It is being used in Windows XP, IE 6.0.

On one page, there are buttons called Approve and Reject. When the user clicks the buttons, a pop up window appears asking the user to enter a password.

This works fine on most people's machine.
But on one guy's laptop, the pop up box appears, but it doesn't load properly. (see attachment for 2 screenshots).

He tried logging into another user's machine and all worked well. So the problem seems to be a setting on his laptop. He just got a new laptop about 2 months ago, so it's not a memory problem.

Any ideas on why the pop up box doesn't load correctly on his laptop?

I reset the router using the rest button. The router IP becomes, Now I try to acccess the router but the username and password still wrong.

the router is working and I can use the internet but I need to access the router to make my network secure because now it has no encryption.

How can I figure out the username and password?

2003 domain, and Exch 2003 for email.

We change passwords every 30 days ( policy)

So one of my users changed thier password and now can no longer access network resources. She cant open her email ether because we store the PST file in a mapped my documents folder.

SO when I try to open her my documents it wants me to athenticate. So I put her user name and password in, in the following format


It just bounces me back to the logon box..

I have reset the password again I have power cycled her machine and rebooted all the DC's and the Exchange box.

I dont understand...

If I change the password and I am able to logon that mean I am using the correct credentials, cause I am not logging on with chached ones. I dont know maybe someone has had something like this before.

I am trying to connect to my Server, but it is asking for a User Name and Password. This Server (and network) were set up a long time ago, and no one knows the user name or password. I have heard there is a way to go into a computer and figure it out. Can someone please help.

I am sending a picture of the box that I get. I have tried entering user names and passwords that were in use back when this was first set up, but they are not working. I also noticed that when I entered a user name, it would come back with the "name of my computer"/"User Name Entered".

My friend has forgotten his user password to log onto his XP system. His memory isn't very good and he just can't remember.

My desktop Windows 7 PC is sick. When it finishes booting the log in page is displayed but only one user name is displayed, and the password (that my wife had taped to the display) is declined. There is no "Guest Account" or "Administrator Account" option displayed.

So far as I can tell, the only solution is to treat it like a lost password and re-install Windows using the format option which I believe means losing all files including all data files. Someone please tell me this ain't so!

Hey there folks! I had an issue with clearing fields and that was resolved but the resolution presented another problem. A problem which I have been unsuccessful in resolving on my own.

I have tried about 3 different methods using command buttons and the VBE but nothing is working.

I need 2 buttons: One to clear all form fields and one to clear all form fields then close the form.

I know how to make a button to close a form but I am unable to make it clear the fields prior to closing. I have also been unsuccessful in creating a button to simply clear the form fields.

This is another minor annoyance, related to my earlier post today. I attempted to resolve the "Unlock Computer" message in switching users by creating a password for myself in Control Panel/User Accounts. It did not work.
That is, it was not the password required to unlock the pc but now is required whenever I attempt to log on. There seems to be no option to re-set or entirely delete the password, which on my home pc is annoying and unnecessary. I suspect there is a way to do this?

Of course, that still leaves the "unlock computer" problem, but that is another issue.

A:Solved: Trouble with a User Account Password

Boot into Safe Mode and log in as administrator, (if you are asked for an admin password, try leaving it blank, as this is the default setting)
Once logged on as admin, you should be able to access the user accounts and change or remove the password.

To get into safe mode, keep tapping the F8 key early in the boot up process (Some keyboards may require you to turn on the F Lock feature first)

I tried making the changes under safe mode, but her account, for some reason, doesn't even appear when I go to User Accounts via the control panel. I considered just transferring her music and photos and setting up a new account. But, her photos are privacy protected so the account won't let me do that.

I am the only person that uses my pc. If I remove my master password from firefox should there be any worry about someone getting my passwords. Or is a master password only needed when multiple people use the same physical pc?

A:[SOLVED] Do you need a master password for single pc user?

Even if you are the only user on your PC, it might be advised to use the Master Password feature for the best security. You can find info about using Master Password at the Mozilla Help Site

Generally, you want your passwords to be as secure as possible, so it might not be a good idea to store them in Firefox at all, since it may be possible for others hacking into your computer to easily find them. As an alternative, I recommend KeePass, which has much more advanced security for storing your passwords, and is easy to make entries that will auto-enter your login info to sites.

Hello all,
I'm rather new to this site and didn't see my answer anywhere so I decided to post a n00b question. I've always had this problem and never have figured it out.
When creating admin users, how can I make it so when User A (admin account) makes changes to their account, it doesn't make the same changes to User B (also admin account) and vice versa. Its the most aggrevating thing when I login and all sorts of icons are now on my desktop because the other user made changes.

A:Creating User

Hello MSFT, and welcome to Sevenforums.
What I understand of your post, is that some changes made by other admin user are bothering you. When a user can make changes in the system, it will affect you as well as himself and others. But focus on the specific topic you mencioned about the icons, when an user installs a program and selects the options of create a shortcut and/or add a shortcut to the start menu, the installer will do that to all the users (there are very few programs that let us to select just our user account). The most you can do to prevent it, is to advice the other user not to select the option of create a shortcut when running a program installation process. The shortcut could be then manually created by the user when installation finished, so it will only appear in his account.
Conclusion: talk to the other people that are using the PC about this or just take it easy and delete the shortcuts.

I have been using forever, a spreadsheet that pulls data from a database. All of the sudden, it is asking me for a password to access the database. Any idea why this would have happened?

Okay, basic question now....I have got Microsoft Office installed under my user name on the home PC, but want my daughter to be able to access it and use it under her user name as do I go about doing this. I am running Windows Home XP.

A:Solved: User access for office

you should be able to access it through program files on your daughters account. check your program file list, if not search for it through all files and folders while in her account.

A friend of mine asked me to look at her laptop. She's unable to access her files. I'm able to expand the folders for the other two users defined on her machine, but, her folder doesn't show expandable. Plus, when I click on her folder name I get an access denied error message.

She said that before this happened, she was getting a lot of popups and such, thinking maybe she has been infected.

I've scanned the computer with McAfee, nothing was found.

I appreciate any help I can get.

A:Solved: Can't access user's folder in XP

Try taking ownership of the files as administator. See if you can expand them then.

I've seen some public computers. They don't have anything on the desktop. Start menu has got only a couple of items. (A good example is computers in libraries.)

May I know how can I do that?

A:[SOLVED] User Access Restriction

Hi there and welcome to TSF.
Go to the control panel and select User Accounts. Turn the Guest account on and set a password for the main account. Then press Start, logoff and switch user. Select Guest. Guest users have a minimal setup and cannot access password-protected files or admin files.

Hi all. I am using XP home and have my account only on it. I wanted to create a new account for my spouse and was able to successfully create the account, and if preferred, use a password.

However when i try to log in to the new account, the desktop wallpaper momentarily flashes in a fraction of a second and brings me back to the login. Second, third, forth and any more attempts to login have the same result.

Any ideas on what might be creating this issue an how to resolve it?
Much appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] Cannot access new user account

Try removing the account rebooting, now click start>run now type controluserpasswords2
before creating the username check and see if users must enter a username and password is checked, if so be sure to create a password for the account. on add then create the new username and follow the prompts.

Hey guys, I recently got a new pc, and I want to transfer my files from my old hard drive to the new one. I managed to transfer most of my stuff except for one of my folders. This folder is a user folder (an admin) from the old hard drive, but whenever I try to access it, it tells me Access is denied. Is there any way to get my files from this folder?


A:[SOLVED] Can't access user folder

Hi and welcome to TSF

It seems to me that you have a permissions problem. Is there any way you can access the old drive? Can you put the drive in the computer and boot up from it to Windows? You will have to change the permissions in that Windows.

Great find Flav!While I didn't resolve or have the exact issue 'Brooks-bilson's had, one of the comments on this blog entry ( did have a comment that worked.First I renamed the file "\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm" to \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm.bakInterestingly, this failed (bolded to help skimming folks).  However, actually moving the file out of the directory (effectively deleting it) did work.  This file was definately related to the problem, but exactly why W7 wasn't able to copy this (such as insufficient permissions or too long name error) is still unresolved.A little bit of information about the process Vista (and presumedly W7) goes through is well laid out in the referenced blog, and I recommend it for education.Unless it pops up again, I'm considering this issue closed and won't be monitoring it.  I hope everyone dealing with this W7 issue finds this helpful.Thanks again, Flav, for the find.D

I need help! I am trying to make a new user in order to fix a corrupted User Profile.

I have gotten all the way up to creating the account, but when I go into documents and settings, it will only show me the admin account and the corrupted account...Why will it not show the New User account I have created?

I went into the folder options and cleared the hiding folders options and all that but it still does not show up.

Can anybody help me with this?

A:Creating user accounts

You'll have to go to the desktop for the account first.
The new user account will not show up in Documents and Settings until you log on using the newly created account.
After you do that, the you'll be able to see it in Docs and Settings from admin or any other user account.

Hello everyone,

For the past 2 years or so, I've been using my laptop alone with just 1 user account ie my personal account.

Now my dad has asked me to create an account for him on my laptop as well. Here are some questions which I hope are answered here.

1. Can two accounts on the same PC have administrator privileges?
2. How do I prevent my dad from viewing my personal files (docs, excel sheets, text files, etc.)
3. I have Google Chrome as my default browser and have all my passwords saved. Whenever I go to a website like SevenForums, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Google, etc., I am logged in. I don't wish to change these settings as I am pretty used to them now. Will my dad be able to access my accounts as well unless I don't remove my passwords from Chrome?

If someone can clear these 3 doubts for me, I'll be really grateful to them.

Thanks in advance.

A:Creating user with SeSecurityPrivilege

just want to add to this....

I have a support team and want them to do most admin things, but not want to give them the administrator password, but the administrators group on windows 7, doesn?t seem to be really full administrator like on windows 2003.

I want to add the Se_Security_Privilege so these users can alter ACLs.
