Preferred Solution: Local Power user cannot perform updates...

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Local Power user cannot perform updates...

Im guessing that your sys admin does not want them installing a bunch of crap on his pc's? How bouyt just giving them admin but enable driver signing. Chances are most users won't know how to get around that......

Hi,

After removing spyware and viruses from my computer, now I am not able to do windows updates in windows xp sp2. I also am unable to search for anything that I put in a search bar like google or msn search. If I type the search criteria in the search box and press GO or the GOOGLE SEARCH button, nothing happens. The word just sits there like the buttons no longer work. I also tried downloading MS Antispyware and the system would not validate. I tried downloading the online virus scanner from Trendmicro.com and when I went to select United States as my download country and pushed the button next to it to submit my choice, nothing happened. Does ANYONE have any idea what happened?

Thanks in advance.

Then he can access the Registry by clicking Run from the Start menu, typing regedit in the field, and clicking OK. In the Registry Editor, he should locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\WINDOWS key and select the CSDVersion value from the right pane. Next, he should right-click the value, select Modify, type 0 in the Value Data field, and click OK.

Hello. I actually have another post that is being worked on for another laptop. This is totally unrelated. I have a Dell laptop which I noticed that I could not perform a Microsoft Security Essentials update today. Upon further analysis I found that I couldn't do any Windows Updates either. It says that the service is not turned on. I ran a MalwareBytes scan and it found and removed one trojan. I also ran Eset and it also found and removed another trojan. I rebooted and still can't do any updates. I removed MSE. Not sure what else I should do? Thanks.

Hi guys,

I have a win7 machine which is unable to perform windows updates and has other issues.(Windows error: Unknown Publisher on windows files)
Each time I try to perform an update I get an error message. It doesn't matter whether I do one update at a time or all. The error messages are not the same for each time I try.
I'm guessing the two issues are related but am struggling to find a solution.

I ran malwarebytes and it did not find anything. Can't run defender because it wont download the updates.

I tried starting the service as it appears on another vista machine (system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) but that does not do anything.

i tried to download windows Xp service pack 2 on my boss's computer but the following happened.
i went on the windows update website, i guess launched a new update software , so i waited for it to install , then it gave the choice between cutom updates or express , so i clicked on one of them.
there is a bar that comes up with green squares going thru it , and that just keeps on going forever, when i try to stop it, it would freeze the whole computer and i'll have to restart. i know it's nothing to do with the security setting in our netwrok here, because i can get windows updates on other computers on the LAN. can this be a spyware problem if so, how can i resolve. i never encountered a problem like this before.

So a new box recently built, when booted, defaults to the local administrator account.

This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

If I'm not being clear, please let me know and I will try to explain a little better.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

Hi, I am using Teamviewer to remotely control my friend's computer and help him with tech problems, and I need to help him with a certain thing that will take a long time. He gets bored of me controlling the computer for so long, so I want him to be able to do something else on his computer while he waits. Can I control his computer in the background while he has a different window open so he can watch videos while I work on his computer?

And if not, is it possible to make a 'plugin' for teamviewer to do this?

I really need this feature, so thank you so much to anyone that can help me with this.

My grandmother was recently hacked and she changed all her passwords herself (yay!). However she did not write down her new local user account password for her laptop.

I tried downloading OPHCrack, I burned it as an ISO file and put it on a DVD-R(only thing I had on hand) and i changed the boot order on her BIOS menu to had the DVD drive as the first priority. It does not run....I hear the disk drive moving, or spinning but the program does not run. Are there any other options or do I have to do a complete system restore to bypass this? Also if that is what I have to do how do I do that without being in her control panel?

Hi,

I need to generate a report by letting user select the month and year (From and to) using a combo box. After that, the input is used to produce a report with calculated fields.

E.g.: The user want the report from Jan 2007 - Jan 2008. After he/ she select on the 2combo boxes, it takes the fields from the table and perform calculation before presenting it as a report.

How can I do that? Must I use form or report? Any references or sample I can refer to?

Thank you!
 

A:Access 2003 Report (Allow user input & perform calculation)

Use a form with the fields you want to base the report on and a submit button that will fire off the report using those parameters. You will need to code the button using some VBA to pass those parameters to the report.

I'm thinking I'm not the first nor the last to have MS trick me into changing my User Name from Local to (in my case) an outlook.com email account. Now I'm forced to sign in every time I log on. And FWIW, I prefer to be fully in charge of my devices.

I surely would appreciate some guidance on the proper way to switch back to a Local User and disassociate my computer from outlook.com. Many thanks in advance for reading this and all replies.

Can I use the different user types in Windows 2000 to pick and choose what programs my kids can use? I have a few semi-violent computer games I would rather not let my children play or see. Is this part of the different user levels is capable of? If so, do I have to log off, and then let my child log on to make this work? If not, is there another program that does this, or one that perhaps adds a password to get into certain games or programs?
Are there any free ones?

Thanks!
 

A:Windows 2000, power user, adminstrator user etc?

Hiya

You'd be better off asking in Win2000 bit, but I'm learning it at the moment, so I'll have a go.

Yes, you can restrict them. You will have to log off, but as you are the main person who sets up the other users, ie your children, then you will act as the administrator. You can block acces to many things.

Now, as I say, I'm just beginning, but others will have a better chance. Go to Control Panel | Users and Passwords icon.

If the User must enter a password...is not ticked, tick it.
Click Add, enter the name. Next. select the level of access:

Standard, Restricted, Other

maybe Standard?

You can modify the account. Click Advanced, Advanced button under Advanced user managegment. In the Local Users and Groups window, doubleclick Users folder, and then doubleclick the user you wish to modify.

This bit I'm a little cagy on, but you could try with trial and error.

maybe someone could carry this on

If I have three computers on local network and only one has internet access will this update all machines on local network?

A:Updates on Local Network

Yeah - this is a great option. It does not entirely stop getting stuff from internet as it is basically a torrent system, but is much faster and much reduces download demand

A torrent system basically extacts bits of a file from multiple sources, so each serving pc does not have to upload whole file (uploading usually being slower than downloading), and receiving pc glues it all together again. So you might get 5 pcs uploading a fifth each of the file at the same time, and pc can download all five parts simultaneously as download is usually several times faster than upload. It actually works in much smaller increments, but the principle is the same.

I always update my fast pc first, leaving my other slower devices switched off. Then I turn on other devices, and you see the hdd flicking away as it serves the updates to the other devices.

Do not enable last option as it will 'steal' bandwidth from you.

We are creating a PDF file in login user's local application folder (C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\folder1) through a custom .Net application and displaying the created pdf file in application.

The above functionality is working for users who are part of domain and added to local vista machine as users (both for administrator and standard user accounts).
The same is not working for local users (both administrator and standard user accounts created in vista box).

File is getting created for any user under their local appdata folder and can able to open from that location, but not displaying from app in case of local system users (admin or standard type).

Can anyone help me what security settings differ between domain users vs local users in vista business 32 bit OS?

Thanks
Padmaja

A:domain account user vs local account user in vista

Policy that is actually causing the problem (or lack thereof) is corresponds to Internet Options control panel, Connections tab, Lan Settings button: Use Automatic Configuration settings.
Having this turned on causes IE to load a configuration file prepared by IT department which makes a whole lot of configuration changes to IE, including remapping the security zones. We can test this by unchecking this option (the default state).
Since the machine is in domain and since we are testing with domain users accounts, I have monitored domain controller pushing down a bunch of policy settings which relax the IE security settings, causing the reports to display.
First, domain settings will resync over time and this checkbox will keep getting turned back on automatically. So you can?t really turn this off, it won?t stay off. I would feel better just testing local accounts, but since the computer is also a member of the domain, machine-specific policies are applied by the domain as well.

I have a user with a machine that was setup with Win 8.1 Home. The machine has been upgraded to 8.1 Pro and joined to a domain (WinSrv 2003). I need to get the conten/configuration from their old local machine user profile to their new domain user profile. I tried to copy the contents of their ../users/<name>/.. folder from the local user profile to the new domain user profile (after they had logged in once, and then logged off). This did not work. When I did the copy, I grabbed all files, including hidden...was that my mistake, or is the issue broader?

In the end....they want their old stuff and configuration under their new credentials/profile.

Thanks!

A:Merge Domain User Account with Local User Account

There are 4 conventional ways of accomplishing this task.

Option 1: Simply copy My Documents, Favorites, Desktop items from one to the other. You will have to setup program options again, may or may not be a big deal

Option 2: Use the Windows Easy Transfer option. Explained here. Vista & Win7 local to domain profile migration

Option 3: Use the Copy To Feature in User Profiles, explained here: Copy a user profile. The steps are outlined for different versions of Windows, but they work the same in Windows 8.

Option 4: Use the User State Migration Tool. User State Migration Tool 4.0 User's Guide. Here is a link to a video on using the USMT. User State Migration Tool in Windows 7 - Install | TechNet

I have a corporate PC as well. The only way I know to work around this "fully" is to contact your network administrator. There is something you can try though.

If you know your domain name from work try typing this into your user id field:

<domain name>\<user id>

Then type your password accordingly.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,
I have come across a problem with Windows 8.1 and local user accounts all of a sudden.
When I logon using a local username and password I keep being told that my password is incorrect.
However......

The password IS correct.The account does exist.The account is NOT disabled.
I can login with a Microsoft Online Account fine. But I don't want to (and shouldn't have to) use this option. I have also tried converting the Online account to a Local account but once I do this and log off I am told again that my password is incorrect, which it isn't.
The local administrator account can login fine.
Does anyone know why this could be happening and how can I fix it so I can logon locally.
Thanks

In our network we have many remote sites. We are currently all WinXP Pro but are starting to transition to Windows 7 (64-bit) when we cycle PCs out.

We have been using RealVNC for years instead of RDP because RealVNC allows shared control of the PC between you and the local user (ie: "Show me what you are talking about"). I've tried Tight (which leaves lots remnants after uninstalling), Real (simply does not work unless you buy the Enterprise version, for ~800 computers that just isn't going to work) and Ultra (works, but randomly resets its options and closes down once you log out of a profile).

Is there a way to allow shared control during RDP? If not, is there another VNC-ish program I can try (freeware) that's as reliable as RealVNC has been under XP?

I purchased a new Dell 1764 Win 7 Professional about 2-weeks ago and have been learning how to use Win 7 - I consider myself an old XP guy!

I was in the windows explorer to see who was listed inder the Users directory where I found a directory with my name on it. I double clicked and noted the contents of the directory was the same as in XP. I clicked on the Local Settings directory (I temporarily turned off the "hide protected operating system files" option to see if contents was the same) and got a message that access was denied. I was told by a tech that this was normal in Win 7 in order to stop people from changing options, etc. which could cause problems.

My question is this - was the tech correct by saying it was locked for protection? If the answer is yes, then who can access the directory? (I have system administrator rights.

A:User account - Local Settings

Hello Pierre,

Yes, he was correct. The faded shortcut protected OS folders are actually only "junction points" to the actual folder instead, and are not real folders. They are used for backwards compatibility for older XP type applications that still reference them by default instead of the newer default locations in Vista and Windows 7 now. They redirect the older application to the new Vista and Windows 7 locations instead.

A:Can't figure out how to add a non-local user for RDP access.

Not really my area, but even for remote access you'll need to log in with a local account. Logging in remotely or locally is basically the same thing, but for remote desktop you can choose which accounts are allowed to be used. From your screenshots, the top middle, "Jonathan already has access".

Think of RDP like working locally but from a distance. When you use RDP and log in to your desktop you want the same desktop, icons and configuration as when you log in locally, right? Then you need to log in with the same account.

In this case (my first Win8 incident), I created the new local admin acct, but when I try to remove admin rights from the orig user's acct, Win8 tells me that I can't do that, because you must have at least 1 admin acct on the computer!

I am not totally familiar with the concept of MS accts vs local, but she does not intend to buy from the MS store, and doesn't use Skype, FB, or other social prgms.

You can change her account to a local account but there still must be an administrator account on the computer.

Go to PC Settings (from the charms menu, select the Gear (Settings), then select Change Pc Settings)

Then Select Accounts, Your Account

Select Disconnect

From there follow the instructions.

You will now have a local account. You will need to create another local account with standard user privileges if you want.

I hope this is an easily solved issue but here we go I need to add a folder located Local Profiles 6 for User IE Favorites on the local machine to the favorites menu on IE both XP and K machines will be used in this evolution Many of the local profiles already exsist on the PC so simply adding the folder to favorites in the default user folder will work being that default user only affects new profiles being created IE 6 Favorites for Local User Profiles on the machine not those already in exisitance Adding this to All Users does not IE 6 Favorites for Local User Profiles add the short cut to the favorites menu from what I can tell eithe What I am looking to do is to create this folder in the already exsisting user accounts on these machines It wouldnt be a big deal normally but I have to do this across machines each with multiple users or more profiles at least per machine As a last result I can blow out thier profiles and let them recreate thier own on each machine but by doing that I run the risk of loosing any local profile stored data Help nbsp

Your solution would be to create those folders into...

hi everyone
up untill a few days agao, my sky connection worked fine. but after the usual updates that vista runs, my connection stopped working and went to local only.
my dad is on XP and his works fine, so does my brothers XBOX live. i've tried everything i can think of. but i just don't know what to do.

A:Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

Hello!

Unfortunately, this is much easier said than done. It is possible, and I have written a few program scraps to prove viability, and early results are good for this being possible (very simply, ask Windows Update to perform a search for updates, but download only (this is very easy to do), scrape the SoftwareDistribution folder, and implant onto another computer (and before you try, you CANNOT just drop in this folder - it requires using parts of the contents etc. etc.))

So it does appear to be possible for a program (but not a human unless you have a very good knowledge of the SoftwareDistribution folder)

However, demand for such a program is not great, and I have only a limited amount of time to program. I literally have 27 programs for Windows Update bits and bobs which I want to make. Sadly I do not have the time for all of these, or this one. (Currently I am making an automated fixing tool for the 0x800B0100 error code, and a tool to automate certain procedures in the registry which are too complicated (and dangerous) for an average poster to perform)

The only thing you can use to simplify downloading is WSUS Offline: WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

However, you will need to invest in all of the updates, so watch your downloading total.

I am really sorry that I could not be of more help, but unfortunately, this program is not going to be made

Hi,

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (desktop machine). The machine has a number of accounts, each of which are logged in and running programs.

I've considered running VMs, but I don't want to break the licencing on the software that I am running. So, I am stuck with running multiple user accounts.

I'd like to be able to access the desktop of the other accounts without logging out and changing user. I considered the possibility of using remote desktop, but in this scenario, the computer has a single IP address.

Any suggestions for how to do this, or whether it is even possible?

Thanks

I would think the network IT guy did that for a reason and if their policy is to lock out the admin account they want it that way. I would suggest you call the IT guy with an explanation as to why you need it and perhaps he will make an exception.

Why are you trying to make Win7 look and act more like XP? Aren't you interested in learning how to use the best OS ever and not make it act and look like a 1967 Dodge Dart? Delete whatever folder you dragged in and instead drag the contents of the related User folder into each.

The graphics interface looks even older than XP. Rightclick on an empty area of your Desktop to choose Personalize, then choose an Aero theme. You can set up Background slideshow there, too.

Hello anaron

These files are safe to delete if you wish. There are many threads here as to where they come from, some say from windows live mail or messenger and others have different views but I don't remember there been a conclusive answer. The only thing we all agreed on is that the can be safely deleted if you want to however they take up no space so can be left alone.
My advise is to leave them in the recycle bin for a few days just to make sure you have no issues.

A:changing user/local folder location

Is this for a backup? Because if it's not, you shouldn't move these folders from there current location, there's a reason why there hidden.

Also, even if you do move this folder, Windows 7 would recreate it the next time you logon. Unless you create a shortcut to the new location of these folders in your current AppData folder.

And you can move the folders but it would require you to do so in such a way that you did not use Windows, because that is the service that is using the files that you are trying to move. The computer would have to be either logged off or shut down when the files were being moved, which would require another operating system or even computer.

If you are trying to stop your annoying brother/sister downloading, just set up telnet or something, I ususally telnet into my brothers laptop and stop the DHCP service if he is hogging bandwidth or downloading too much.

I recently removed a machine from our domain, but on reboot I'm not able to login with any local accounts. Looks like something funky as I'm only seeing the full name of the last user (John A. Doe) and no arrow to allow for the "Other Users" option.

When I try to add a domain user to the local administrators group, I receive an error saying that the user is already a member of the administrators group. The thing is, that user is not in the member list of the administrators group. Why do I receive that message.

I did a copy of the problematic user in the Active Directory and I am able to add that "testuser" to the local administrators group without any problem.

From my point of view, the problem is not related to user's permissions because I did an exact copy of that user and I can add that "testuser" in the group.

Hi,

I am playing around with Server 2012. If I want to have a laptop configured for "at office use" with option to go on site, what would be the best way to do that in order to retain access to shared locations on server that is "at office"?

Should I create a standard windows account unrelated to my domain controller, and have them VPN regardless if they are in office or on site? Or is there a way to have a laptop configured for domain use, where it will still be functional (local computer use) on site outside of the office, even without internet connection (I know you can's VPN without it).

Thanks
 

A:Best way to set up local and remote user with Server 2012

Well this is kind of interesting. You can in fact use a domain laptop away from the local network as long as you have logged into int once on the domain so it can cache your password for future log ins. Now comes to the more difficult part of your question's. Accessing files remotely while not online, you can set up what is called offline files. Offline files will give you acess to your files away from domain network. So if you choose to do offline files any changes made to the file while away from the domain controller where you shares are set up will have to be synced once back on the domain network. So if you make changes to lets say docA while off domain network, once you get back to domain network you will have to sync offline files to the server to update any changes you have made. This set up would not require offsite network but can bring problems when syncing once you reconnect on domain. But now lets say you have the same shares and now you have multiple individials with the same access to the shares. Say you make changes to docA and the other person makes changes to docA while offiste. Once you both reconnect and sync to server you could have issues with data such as duplicate information or doc merging. VPN would be the best option for sure....

The NT way would be to place a batch file on the PC that you want the user in that local group.

So yesterday I restarted my computer after an update and I type in my PIN as usual to login and then I get a message saying quot Your password was changed on a different device You must sign in to this device once with your new password and then you can sign in with your PIN quot When I saw that I realized it had to have been my fault because I was using Now Password not cannot ONLY sign-in!! working. USER(local) the command prompt on my girlfriend's laptop to get to know the network commands and I stupidly decided to test out changing my password from the command prompt The thing is I only left out one letter when I typed in the password on the command prompt just to test it and see if I it worked Well now I can't login to my own laptop because of my own dumb curiosity Even worse I didn't add a second user since I had just done a clean windows install and directly updated to Windows So since I only have ONE local user I can't use another user ONLY USER(local) Password not working. Now cannot sign-in!! to login and fix the problem I'd like to avoid reinstalling from scratch I'd really appreciate the help guys Thanks in advance Also my girlfriend used the flash drive with my password reset file on it so that's not an option for me For now I added my Live user account to my girlfriend's laptop for the time being to see if I can fix this but so far no dice

A:ONLY USER(local) Password not working. Now cannot sign-in!!

I managed to find my flash drive with the userkey. Plugged it in and the wizard popped up and filled out the new password and password hint, I hit next and then got an error message saying:
"An error occurred while the wizard was attempting to set the password for this user account."

So maybe this is something else?

Okay we have a problem I am trying to automate The issue is our users are NOT Administrators on their machines Wooohooo you say Well I do too in most instances In all this is a plus but it does not help us when we have to remote desktop into these machines and then do something as the particular user Here is what I have envisoned so far - echo off SET P comp Type Computer Name IP Here SET P user Type User Name Name add user to local admins group mstsc exe v comp f pause remote user from local admins group Verify Admins group settings The problem with this script is I am not sure what command line functions would local to Admin User Add group temporarily. be used to display out a remote computers local group Also I don t know of a Add User to local Admin group temporarily. command that will remotely add a domain user to a remote machines local group as well as remove them Really all items with the in front I am a little unsure of Basically I am trying to automate a process of - Having the user log off - opening the MMC connecting to another computer adding in the user opening remote desktop doing the work and then removing the user from the group and then doublechecking to make sure the user is gone this last part is imperitive as we have had some machines with the local users left in the admins group and we want to avoid it I was thinking a net command may work like net group or net users but nothing I have come across in the way of switches are setup for remote connection Any thoughts nbsp

Folks - At my new job we are running about 16 PC's on a network and app.'s like outlook and some specific chapter 13 software..My question is.......if I sit down to a PC login as admin and start MS updates, then cannot make it make to the PC to complete them, can the user of that PC just login as them with their password and continue working normally, or can't they just cold reboot the PC then login and every thing's fine??? It is my understanding that if they return to their PC and see that an admin was logged in, they just needed to change it to their user name and password and everything's fine...?? YES or NO ???

Thanks

I've had this happen on a couple machines and a couple printers. A local printer is installed and working correctly. After installing some windows updates, all of a sudden the local printer won't print.

On one computer, the print queue shows the print job in the queue, spools and then prints successfully, but never actually physically prints.

On another computer, the print jobs that originally sent to the local printer, get re-directed to some other network printer.

I've already uninstalled and re-installed the printer with the latest drivers.

Hello I have a rather unique setup here where I would like to be able to point domain user's roaming profiles to a local account on a Windows PC Would anyone know how to do this We have many computers a profiles to user Directing local account Roaming here all with a local user called quot PE quot for Directing Roaming profiles to a local user account profile editor which I would like to make the standard profile for people logging in The systems are all locked down with a program called DeepFreeze which means that no changes would be saved locally at all Right now PE is set as the default user so every time someone logs into a computer here it copies the PE profile to their new profile However with all the software we have this profile is around MB in size which leads to login times of about minutes My hope is that I can slim this login time down by implementing this User logs on with domain credentials Because they have a roaming profile set up to point to C Users PE Directing Roaming profiles to a local user account they are able to get right in with very little login time Now they get on quickly and have access to their allotted network storage space When they log off the computer will restart and will be back to a fresh image Step is the one that I am unsure of how to implement Does anyone see a way this could work Thanks for your help
