New owner but cannot remove previous owner as administrator

Q: New owner but cannot remove previous owner as administrator

I recently bought an Acer AX3810 with Vista 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the widow of my neighbor. I had transferred all his personal files and copied all the photographs to an external hard drive for her then deleted all the files using "Eraser". I cannot seem to be able to delete the previous owner as administrator. His file has a little padlock symbol on it. I changed his name to mine in the "Manage user accounts" but no matter, it is still "him" that is logged on. I created a new account in my name and then changed the status from standard to administrator but he is still "there". I feel like I am being haunted. Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: New owner but cannot remove previous owner as administrator

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.)

This picture shows how my name has been changed in User Accounts and in regedit, as displayed by running winver, but yet all my files are still found at C:\Users\Owner.
When I go to C:\Users, the Owner folder is locked and cannot be renamed even though my account type is administrator, as seen here.
How do I really change the name from Owner to a name of my choosing?

I bought a computer from a friend. It had ME on it. I installed XP and everything works great EXCEPT that his user name is everywhere. Even though the user account is under my name, all the documents and settings are still using his name. Another problem is that in IE6 when I click on history, all of the addresses are "[email protected]://blahblah.com". Therefore, they are unknown addresses when clicked on. How can I change these things?

First post here. A wonderful site here.
My brother bought a new emachines system from Walmart about 6 weeks ago. Waits untill this weekend to open it and get it running. It runs fine BUT under the system properties it has someone else's name! The machine is already registered in another name. I suspect it may have been resold to my brother. Since 30 days has gone by he can't return it. He just wants to delete this person's name so I suspect there is a registry entry that can be changed. Could someone help? Thanks!

Need to sell a PC running XP - I have wiped all documents etc

However, the full name of the previous owner is in the Docs and settings folder as a user

Is there any way to change this in the registry to something like "Owner"

Would it work ?

Thanks

I bought a used Samsung N-150 netbook with Windows 7 Starter. The previous owner deleted his user account, but. left the files associated with it. I will be the only user and do not want to be annoyed by having to log out as a user in order to log in as administrator. The only account I want on the machine is the administrator account.

So far, everything I try to set-up or save defaults to the left-over file structure under the previous owner's user's name.

After numerous searches for a way to get rid of all files associated with this guy, I am about ready to re-format the drive, then re-install the operating system from the recovery partition.

Is there an easier way to get this guy out of the computer?

Personally. I would restore it as you suggest. It won`t take long and you`ll be better off.

A:Optiplex 980 - Previous Owner's name on splash screen

F2 into bios and change the ASSET TAG Field.  Otherwise you need to use the DCCU utility to change this.
http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/os-applications/w/wiki/2545
You can ONLY change the asset tag however NOT the service tag if it has a value.

Service Tag
Displays the Service Tag of your computer.


Asset Tag
Allows you to create a system asset tag if an asset tag is not already set.
This option is not set by default.

This option is enabled by default.
Some graphics cards require the SERR Message mechanism be disabled.

Haha, I don't know what else to call it, but how do you change the owner where it says C:/User/Owner

Thanks

A:How do I change the owner in C:/user/owner

Hello Nick, and welcome to Vista Forums.

The only way to change the C:\Users\Owner folder name is to create a new administrator account, then delete the old C:\Users\Owner account from within the new account. Be sure to copy the contents that you want to save from the old accounts user folders into the corresponding new account's user folders to restore them to the new account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I run an HP Pavillion 515n w/XP Home SP2.

About a year ago, I received some bad advice (not from this site) and ran a non-destructive recovery on my computer. When that was done, the system created two new folders for the admin & owner accounts. My folder list now shows:

Administrator
Administrator.Home
All Users
Default User
Guest
LocalService
NetworkService
Owner
Owner.Home
User Account
Visitor

The system completely ignores the base Administrator and Owner accounts and utilizes the accounts followed by .Home. I am also denied access to the base Owner account. When I check my User Accounts, I only show me as the computer administrator, a user account with limited access and a guest account.

Is there any way to access the base folders, move everything back to them and get rid of the .Home folders?

Hi I've just bought netbooks one each for my daughters running windows xp sp I set the first one up with E's name on it She decided she wanted the other colour so I created another administrator account with M's name and then deleted E's administrator account The problem is that E is still showing as the Registered Owner of windows xp in My Computer Properties General I went into the registry to see if I could change the name but there are no details at all now registry see administrator registered can't Deleted and in owner I showing Deleted administrator and now I can't see registered owner in registry when I go to regedit HKEY Current User software microsoft windows NT current user - only shows one entry saying Default REG SZ value not set Whereas on my other laptop it shows all the registry details for windows registered owner etc when I do this I have tried showing hidden files but this still does not show the details Did I delete the registry details when I deleted E's administrator account Can I restore them by using system restore to an earlier date Or will this mean that M's administrator account may not exist and if E's account is not restored then I may not be able to access anything Or are the details still there somewhere and do I have to click on something to show them again I'm worried that not having registry details showing in this place may affect the installation of future programs I haven't put anything on it yet I can still see the windows xp registration number when I right click My Computer and go to Properties but it shows E's name and I'd like it to be M's name And I would like to see all the details back in the registry again Please help

Go into the Registry Editor to HKEY_Local Machine/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/Current User here you can change the owners name and organization.

How do I permanently show only one "Owner/User"?
- the Welcome screen (and after hibernation/sleep) always shows Admin + Owner
- as the only user + administrator ... the options are pointless for me
- I would like to skip the Welcome user options all together.
I have had days of problems understanding the Win-7 "security settings" on each and every folder
and maybe I have saboatged myself.
The PC is only used for internet browsing, surfing, research, no games
- I am a MS-Excel + MS-Word + AutoCad programmer in VBA, but that is my limit
ie, Office 2003, and some VBScript -- but I am no expert

Win7_Home
No MS Office programs, nor any third party open-office
Classic Shell 3.6.3 ... on Start menu (I am an XP die hard)
Custom programs...
Metapad.exe -- (portable mode)
Explorer++.exe -- (portable)
ClipX.exe (clipboard tool)
MyDefrag.exe
ShiftOff.exe
Virtual Keyboard -- (portable)

Any help would be appreciated

A:Welcome screen shows Administrator and Owner icons (options)

To skip the welcome screen altogether you can do by using netplwiz.exe (Start/run, or search for it).
Select the user you want to log on as (eg Owner), and then uncheck the "Users must enter a username/password..." prompt.

Be aware that this may have security implications by bypassing a log on.

If you want to log on as administrator you can just log off and it will show the log on screen as you see it now.

I am not sure it is completely gone...but at the moment I've noted that under docs & settings there is an owner folder but no owner account appears in user accounts. I'd like to just delete it...can anyone tell me if deleting the owner folder will cause any system problems? I've set up another administrator account and disabled the guest account. If I need to post more information please let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Sounds like an overheating video card. Make sure that all the computers fans are working.
Check that any cabling is not blocking air flow through the case. Also check that the power supply fan is running.
If the video card does not have fan purchase an add on fan.

Hi bugs461, and welcome to TSG.

Notepad is not an e-mail program that would normally open an e-mail message. It might be used to open certain types of files that are attached to an e-mail message. Are you trying to open attachments to e-mails? A wrong program association in the the email program may be causing the mail software to use Notepad to open a non-text file.

out the door and use it for 90 days but the 1st 30 days I have option of buying extended warranty for 2yrs @$30 or 3yrs for $40
Is this a good buy? I am online with it now and so far everything is working ok. Just need someone with more experience with laptops than I am.

Ran sfc /scannow and everything was good.

What other tests can I or should I do to make sure this laptop is worth the money?

James,

The problem is not with your computer, but with web designers and software.

There is a multitude of options for "ease of use", but as far as captioning existing websites, it is up to the designers. the ADA is highly active in finding solutions to your issue and others. Some options already exist on your computer. They can be found under your start menu/accessories/accessability.

There are programs that will caption existing DVD or Video. Maybe even some other multimedia. I think streaming video is still underdeveloped.

This link is from a company that has developed captioning software.

This link is from a research paper on disabilities vs. ease of use and what is to be done to overcome them.

Good luck with your search. I hope I have helped in some way.

Somewhere it asked me for a name and I put in "Nunya."
In the C: drive "Documents and Settings" I have:

I'm getting mixed up as to what user is the default. I'm the only person who uses this computer and I'm wanting to know if I can safely get rid and how to get rid of all unwanted "User" names. So that there is just one User...One Administrator, etc...me, Janet.

I recently purchased an older PC from a friend of mine. My problem is that when I try to open winzip files and several other instances, the machine defaults to the previous owner's information and will not install. I have changed the ownership of the PC in the registry, but when I try to delete all references to the previous user's information, I get a message indicating the former owner (Mary Jo Duncan in this case) is a system file and can't be removed. Is there a way to get rid of ALL the previous owner's information, defaults, etc. without doing a clean install? I finally got my desktop the way I want it and would really hate to start from scratch.

Would it screw things up if I changed her name to mine in EVERY location in the registry?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello Karizma,

"OWNER-PC" is the computer name of what appears to be a wireless PC or device that is currently connected to your network.

The error you got indicates that you do not have a permission to access this PC or device.

Do you have any PCs or devices that has you used that name for?

Hope this helps for now,

Hello All,
I had "Microsoft Works Suite" installed on my computer by my former employer and it was registered to that company. I have unistalled all of that software, as I no longer work for them. I have since purchased "Microsoft Office 2000 Pro". The problem is ALL of my new "Microsoft Office 2000 Pro" software has my former employer as the "Registered Owner" by default. When installing this software it ask for my name and I entered it, but when I click to open Excell, Word, Outlook, ect... it says my former company is the registered owner on the initial start-up screen. HOW DO I CHANGE THIS TO ME, AS THE REGISTERED OWNER?

Yes, embarassingly so, I have issues with changng all of my file path names. When I purchased my computer new the business had already installed the OS, etc. So whenever I save ANY document, the crazy file name includes "HP_Owner" to my dismay. I have already tried to do a regedit, yet file names still have the dreaded HP Owner scar. Here's a lovely example: C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Owner\My Documents\article.rtf. See?!

I went to My Computer and clicked Properties and then changed name and it brought up a screen that had numbers and letters..I am afraid to do anything past this for fear of loosing all my documents and downloads.

Is there a simple way to delete his name and then replace it with mine without loosing any files? I am thinking he is set up as administrator and I have no idea if this is password protected.

Hi, you might well be more successful downloading Win 10 iso (make sure you choose the right one) and using that. You then also can use that subsequently if necessary for an in place upgrade repair install (useful!).

You can find appropriate instructions in the Tutorial section (see above).

Make sure you use disk imaging to image your Win 7 so if anything goes wrong (and it did first time for me) you can restore Win 7 from your image backup.

Aomei Backupper or Macrium Reflect (free) + external storage medium for backup + their boot disk (make sure you create it).

Disk image backups are REALLY useful and allow you to restore your system in a defined time and provide a full backup.

A:owner.exe and wigon trojan

To my surprise, NOD32 just quarantined Owner.exe as it was responding to a trojan attached to it that file. My mouse pointer is back to normal, I have no unexplained traffic, and I no longer get an error message when turning off my computer.

Will quarantining this file be enough to take care of these problems or is it temporary? It seems that dealing with other trojans I've seen in these forums requires multiple steps.

What also surprises me is that the results of running NOD32 a couple of different times prior to it quarantining Owner.exe on its own showed my computer to be clean.

I would still appreciate your input and insight.

Thanks!

probably there's a password set on your network connection, you need to know it to have access. if you don't remember it, you can find it from other connected PC:https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/networking-and-connectivity/how-to-find-your-wireles...

I have a piece of software that came with the hardware for a backup system (Kanguru) that's suppose to be a user's manual. When I put the small disc in the CD tray and it comes up in wordpad, all I get is a bunch of garbled hieroglyphics...is there a setting that's went astray in Acrobat that causes this? I'd include a picture of what I see but don't know if that's possible.

A:Can't read Owner's Manual

Well, if you are opening a PDF file with Wordpad, that is the problem. You must use the Adobe Reader to open the PDF file. Also, this can happen maybe if an old version of Adobe Reader tries to open a newer PDF file.

I recommend you download the latest version of the Adobe PDF Reader from Here

Hope it helps

Please help. I have a two part issue but feel that they are related cause I noticed them at the same time.

To begin with, when I look at the task manager, all processes are listed with "(UNKNOWN)" as the owner.
Then also when I look at system properties under the 'Computer Name' tab, I get an access denied message.
Weirdly enough, when accessing the 'Computer Name' tab using the 'Network Connections' folder and then selecting 'Network Identification' fromt he 'Advanced' menu the tab opens without issue.
I am running a WinXP SP2 OS with McAfee VirusScan and Firewall. I used to also have Adaware previous to the recent upgrade of McAfee. When scanning system everything comes back clean. Please help. Thank you.
 

A:Unknown Process Owner

I would suggest backing up all of your important date to another media like CD-R's or DVD as soon as possible.

Also do you have the recovery or Windows install software for this computer?

A:ignorant XP pro 02 ver. #3 owner w\ virus!

I forgot to add that I can hear something running on occasion like the fan or disk drive. It happens at strange times, not when you normally hear that, like going on internet explorer but with one user not the other (two administrative users and 3rd default user?). Just in case this means anything! Thanks again, Tedd

I purchased a solid state drive, had Windows 7 Professional installed on it, and had the drive installed in a laptop computer; love the performance of my refurbished laptop , except on the System drive in the Users account the name Owner appears. Where did this come from?

When I go to User Accounts in the Control Panel and click on Manage Accounts, Owner does not appear. Why?
