Windows 2000, power user, adminstrator user etc?

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

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?

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.)

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 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

Removed my Only User Account from Administrators Group
Relevancy 84.71%

Hello. I am using a "Power User" account as my day-to-day User Group. I am having problems when I click on "New Office Document" link in the start menu. When it starts up I get the following Message.

Microsoft Word 2000 SR-1
Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product Microsoft Word 2000 SR-1. The Windows Installer cannot continue.

I fully installed MS Word 2000 with and Administrative account. It should work fine since it's only a step down right? Should I run the "detect and repair?"

When I went to the office website and scanned for updates, the scan said I was all good. Here is pic of error message. Do I need some sort of permissions application for example like Nero's "Nero Permissions?"

Thank you.

I am running MS Windows 7 home premium, and today I was attempting to update Adobe flash player but it states that I do not have administrator privileges. When I checked the user accounts in the control panel, it says I AM the administrator. Mine is the only user account on the laptop. I attempted a right click on the program to run as administrator but it still did not work.

I do know when I try to update certain things in Spybot I get the same problem. I'm sure this is a common problem, but I can not find a reliable way to fix it. Thanks for any information on how to mend this situation.

A:adminstrator permissions denied but am the only user

the actual admin account is disabled and hidden

your admin account is not the actual admin account,but an account with elevated privileges

right click and run as admin should work,it sounds like you may have installed something that is blocking it

Is there anyway to give a "User Account" the same rights as the "Default Administrator Account"?

A:Default Adminstrator and User Account

Try this & let me know how it goes. Remember you have to login to Windows 8 with Admin Account.

User Account Type - Change in Windows 8

2. On Computer Management -> System Tools - > Local Users and Groups and left click Groups to select.
3. You'll see Administrator group, you can click Properties
4. Administrator Properties click the Add button
5. Select the USER box type in the name or accounts you want to add to Administrator Group and click Check Names

Click Ok to Save & Restart with the new user you just added to Admin

I have set up an adminstrator account for myself on my home PC, and individual 'standard user' accounts for my kids. I notice that certain websites such as do not load properly when the kids log into their accounts, but they open just fine through my adminstrator account.

The kids see the green background of pbskids and a frame at the bottom, but nothing else. Some other websites have a similar problem. What gives?

I tried disabling parental controls, but that had no effect (not that pbskids should be blocked by parental control anyway ...)

Would appreciate any pointers!

A:Can open certain websites as adminstrator but not as standard user

Sounds like a corrupt account. Open a new account for the kids at least as a test.

Here I got a problem to copy user profile. i just recently setup a new server on Windows 2000 Server, assigned a new domain name as well. My workstation is using Win2K pro. How do I copy my user profile (saved in local machine) under the old domain to the new domain. I found that "Copy to" button was grey out if I tried to copy to my local admin account. I also notice that once if remove my workstation from the old domain and join the new one, my user profile under old domain will be set to unknown/"username", that means you cannot copy the whole profile from your local machine to new username under new domain.

Is there any alternative way to accomplish this issue?

Then copy his profile out of "c:\Documents and Settings" on his HD to that share.

I was changing user rights in Win2k...trying to set up a dual user system...and I set the privileges to "deny" for 'everyone' and 'system' for the WINNT folder, system root (in hindsight, probably a stupid thing to do). When I logged in again, the system immediately logged me out.

Does anyone know how I can reset the user privileges to "allow" for the system? I have win xp home which I have installed on my other drive, but can't figure out how to reset user rights...and trying to reverse from NTFS to FAT32 is sketchy...

A:Windows 7 takes forever to load the select user/switch user screen

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

The steps begin with disinfection from Safe Mode or boot disk, since if Win7 is badly infected it may not repair until cleaned up. Then everything possible to start it is sequenced.

I would also do the hardware tests provided before rescuiing the data to run Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

Sounds to me like something in one or more of the user profiles has gotten corrupted. you might have to delete one or more user accounts and then re create those accounts which should hopefully fix the corruption issue. I know u might not want to do that; but at this point i dont see any other choice to fix the problem.

Good evening from Graz,

i have quite a strange problem on my personal pc since the last few days. I cannot login to my useraccount(which has a transparent picture at the logon screen since a few days).
I have just one workarround: if i login with my adminaccount and logoff, the userpicture of my privateaccount appears again and the login is possible.

What could this problem be related to?

I need to add another standard user. I have one admin account and one standard user.

After adding the second standard account name and password on Control Panel
I get the confirmation that the new user can now sign in.

However,I get this famous message that the profile service cannot open.

I looked into C:users and find
First standard user

But not the newly created user account. Nor can I find it in the Registry ProfileService.

Why does Window lye to me saying the new user account is available but it did not create it?

A:Added user account Windows does not create user profile

Did you sign out of your account and then try to sign in to the new one?

If I am understanding you correctly, I think this will help:

See if that helps. Good luck!

In Windows XP it used to be possible to set distinct power plans for different users through a registry tweak on the Lenovo ThinVantage Power Options software that I can no longer reconstruct (something to do with permissions for specific registry keys??).  I'm looking for a similar work-around in Windows 7 SP1 on a ThinkPad W530. At present, if any individual user, whether administrator or "standard user," changes power plans, that change applies to all users.  This is very inconvenient in my application.  Any thoughts? -- JCW2

I have Windows 2000 Professional using Fat 32. I have an administrator account and 2 user accounts. One account is in the administrator group and the 2nd account is set up as a user with restricted access.
The account set up as a user with restricted access is able to view my files in "Documents and Settings" as well as all the other users currently set up.
How can I set up this restricted user so that they can only view and have access to ONLY their files and NOT have access to other folders in other user accounts.
I tried using the "MMC" but their was no option available. Since I didn't install using NTFS, there is no security tab in the properties section of the folder. Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks.

Windows 2000 LDAP function could allow an attacker to change domain user passwords

Microsoft Windows 2000 with the LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) server configured to support LDAP over SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) sessions could allow a remote attacker to change passwords for domain user accounts. This vulnerability occurs because a LDAP function that allows the modification of data does not check user permissions before performing tasks. An attacker could use this vulnerability to gain access to the domain with the privileges of other domain users, including possibly the domain administrator

Running Office 2000 Pro. Today, I attempted to start Word, but after the opening screen, the program hangs. No toolbars, etc. I had read postings from this forum and did a few of the suggestions, including renaming in hopes that Word would create another. That didn't happen.

What makes this issue a little different from other posts is the fact that the other user account (limited) can open Word with no problem. That's why I think my issue is associated within my application data.

I did a repair using the Office CD, but nothing changed. In the folder where the resides, I see that Word makes a backup ~$, even after the hang problem started.

A:power user

It's a case of 'apples and oranges'. The term 'Power User' and 'Adminisrator' are not connected in any way so comparing them is pointless. A power user is simply a pc user who uses his pc for advanced and resource-intensive work like full-frame video-editing, 3D rendering etc. very much like a pro would use it. An 'Administrator' is one who has full access to all the features of a PC for maintenance purposes and he can decide what access other people are allowed to have. Someone could be both a 'power user' and an 'administrator', or just one of these.

Here's the odd part - NO ONE else on the computer experiences this delay. As long as they log in as one of the other 4 family users, Outlook runs at normal speed (i.e. opens right up; no delay in sending or replying etc.).

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 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 did an new install of windows 7 (home first then upgraded to pro)
I want to hide a user by doing this on the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Winlogon \SpecialAccounts\ UserList ..then add dword32 by my username value to 0
I did this on my old laptop and it worked perfectly.

Now I've done the same thing on my new laptop. It works but stangely, the folder still appears in c\users.

The user is not visible in the panel control\users or at the start of the PC

I'm sure i've done the right thing, what is causing this? Could it be a bad install of windows? Please let me know if you have a idea!

Thank you very much for your help!

A:Hide user by registry stange problem: User still appears in C folder

If you log into that user it is going to have a user directory, regardless if you have the user hidden or not.

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.

an acount on my computer will not load. it says the user proflile service failed the logon. user profile can not be loaded. ive seen other questions like this and they said to make a new acount. i tried that multiple times and it says the same thing for each new acount that i make. the other 4 acounts are fine

A:the user proflile service failed the logon. user profile can not be loaded.

If your newly created accounts can't log on, then it is time to check for something else.

In case there is hard drive corruption, I would check the hard drive. Right click on Drive C and choose Properties, > Tools tab > Check Now. The machine will need to reboot for the check to begin. See if the check reports of any problems.

Hi In A domain environment when wifi user a reseting connect cannot user directory from password to Active after i rest a user password from active directory users and user cannot connect to wifi after reseting a user password from Active directory computers he is unable to login to Windows with new password He is configured to login through wifi And we are using single sign on in the wifi settings This issue is only affecting few users connection to company wifi network is authenticated through x so we manualy create a wifi profile for x At the dual login screen the new credentials we are using active directory credentials for wifi since it's x are entered First it user cannot connect to wifi after reseting a user password from Active directory spits an error that unable to connect to wifi Then windows spits an error of invalid user name or password If we enter the old credentials at login in both wifi access and windows access we are able to login to Windows it logs in with Cached credentials but I it obviously is unable to connect to wifi network The user is a member of wifi group so he has access to wifi and he can access wifi through his iPhone Also another observation is that if I login with his Cached credentials and configure a wifi profile connection using his new reseted password password windows spits an error that cannot connect to the network So the core issue is that after reseting his password from active directory users and computers he cannot connect to wifi through windows The workaround that currently I do is i login with his Cached credentials to Windows and then i use my own credentials to configure wifi connection and ask him to login to Windows using his Cached credentials while he will be using my credentials for wifi access And for other systems that will be using credentials like email he uses new credentials Pretty crude solution Any way how to figure out what could go wrong Besides i have tried configuring a wifi connection profile on another users laptop using the affected user credentials I got same error that windows cannot connect you to wifi So the real issue is that after resetting the password of the user from aduc he cannot connect to wifi Any clue idea Windows is latest and updated We are using Microsoft forefront endpoint protection

On windows professional -bit sp if a current user is screen locked the lock screen indicates the current user name and account is logged on and the computer is locked I am using Classic Logon in group policy and under local policy-security options-interactive logon i have it set to display username and account info the option with most information the problem i have is say a user is logged in and then I need to use the computer at that point the lock screen says so and so is logged in and locked I do a switch user log in and do my thing then log out Now the screen goes back to the base login screen saying 'ctrl-alt-del' not saying any user is currently logged in Now if that original user does log back in all his stuff is still here and everything acted like a basic screen lock happened so no problem there but what i want to happen is after a switch user logs out the screen goes back to the lock screen displaying who has the computer locked is there a way to do that thanks

A:Switch User then logoff, back to ctrl-alt-del login not previous user

At a guess, I'd say Classic Logon is the culprit here, as I do not have this issue with Windows 7 64-bit SP1 with the default login screen. Changing this is likely impractical next to the simple solution of ditching Classic Logon (It's an ancient artifact by now)

I've had a problem recently. I think it started after installing StyleXP to change my Windows visual style. I've since uninstalled StyleXP, but it has not resolved the problem.

My user picture that is usually at the top of the start menu is missing. In addition the green arrow icons and question mark icons in the User Accounts control panel are also missing (I just see red X's). I've tried changing my user picture in the control panel and it does not make a difference. I made sure to restore the default icons in StyleXP before uninstalling, but that didn't matter either.

I've since switched to Windowblinds and IconPackager. I've tried restoring default WinXP icons from IconPackager as well with no luck. Any ideas here? I'll upload some screenshots when I get back home, but I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

A:Missing user picture and icons in User Acct control panel

I've tried logging in under another user and I have the same problem. Here's a screenshot of the issue. Notice the red X's and the blank user picture box in the start menu.

I changed the values in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList in order to move the default user locations to my second partition. I then created a new user profile but when I try to login I get the message 'The User Profile Service failed the login'. When I set these values back to normal, new accounts work fine but I really want my user accounts on the second partition.
What can I do about this?

A:'User Profile Service failed' when changing default user location

I have done this on another computer with success - perhaps I am missing a step out?
The string values (apart from programdata) were changed to E:\..... instead of %systemdrive%\.....

Hello I'm looking for a way to give a user admin permissions for his regular AD account on his computer Example he is logged on as a regular user but needs to install software I want to give him admin permissions until reboot or some other point in time after which he loses his permissions again and of to dynamically user user logonid give permissions admin group administrators to Adding has to ask again Adding logonid of user to administrators group to dynamically give user admin permissions I know giving admin access to users is a bad Adding logonid of user to administrators group to dynamically give user admin permissions idea and all but that's how it goes with quot whoami logonid quot I get an ID that I can add to the administrators group by code like this objUser ADSI quot WinNT id quot objGroup ADSI quot WinNT computer Administrators quot To my amazement this works now the user can enter his own credentials in a UAC box and get admin access After a reboot logon this ID changes so he would need to ask admin permissions again It's possible to ask the user for a motivation and log this and to also clean up the administrators group at a given interval or at boot as well as check if a user is allowed to elevate his rights on this computer Of course once a user has admin rights he can circumvent all this but that's something we have to live with What's most important is dat not just anyone can elevate his rights I'm looking for opinions on this way of working Anyone have experience with this mechanism Is it reliable and secure as far as giving admin rights to a user can be secure I may be missing something
