Preferred Solution: HELLO setup guest user on laptop but cannot how to enable internet

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: HELLO setup guest user on laptop but cannot how to enable internet

Hello wil, Welcome to Sevenforums!

May I suggest disabling the 'guest account' and just creating a standard limited user account and naming it 'guest'? It will then function as you would like it to. There are many things that you can do to limit what users can do on the limited user accounts, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask them here.

Hope I've answered your question

I have a fresh install of win8 and there is no guest account at logon.
I've tried creating a one and it says that it already exists.
I've install win8 on my daughters computer as an upgrade to win7 and she has the guest account.
I can't find anywhere to enable it on mine. I assume I will need to alter something in the registry?

A:How do you enable the guest account?

The quickest way to enable the Guest account is via Control panel/User Accounts/Manage another account. You can also right click on 'Computer' under Metro, select manage from the task bar, then select Local Users and Groups/Users/Guest - Uncheck the account disabled box.

Out of interest, why use the Guest account, why not create a separate account?

A:Network/internet setup between my house and the guest house

First off, get stability from Main to Guest by using wired access. If this is not stable,
then the wireless will not be either. Update the Netgear WGR614 firmware.

Wireless will bog down when it is encrypted, but you need that to avoid your neighbors
from getting access to your systems.

Which location (Main/Guest) has the worse reliability issue?

Hi, we recently purchased a group of PCs with Windows 10 installed at our institution. We would like to configure the PCs to have a guest account and when a user logs off the account his or her files would be deleted (much like the guest account of a Mac), is there a way to do it?

If this is not possible, is there a way to configure the PCs so they are for public use? (such as limit access with files deletion upon logging off)

Hi All - I remotely mange 2 laptops (via teamviewer) for both sets of my grandparents, they are complete beginners and need defense not just against the usual virus and malware threats but also against random button pressing - eg - if they press the airplane mode button by accident then their internet is down and I can no longer fix it without actually being there.

I have set them up with the same security config I have (Bitdefender Total, Malwarebytes anti exploit etc)
Any Ideas on any other compatible "idiot-proofing software"? - I am considering timefreeze or something like it - something that will perform a rollback of any changes on reboot - so in the worst case I can just call them and say "turn it off and on again" and they will at least be back online.
But how well does that work with security software? -Anyone tried it?

Hi, I have two user accounts used by my wife and myself and Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) works fine on both user accounts. Very occasionally our daughters visit and use our pc. They use the Guest account. I just happened to log into the Guest account and got a pop up message saying that Microsoft Security Client User Interface has stopped working. When I closed the message I noticed that the MSE icon was missing from the Notification Area. When I tried to open MSE from the Start Menu I just got the pop up message again and MSE would not open.

I would add that I have no other anti-virus software running on my pc apart from MSE.

I would appreciate any help that anyone could give me

Hi Kyro, welcome to the Eight Forums.

If your host setup does not allow an IP to be assigned to guest system, there's nothing that I know which would let you to connect it to the network keeping host's connection active. For example using enhanced session mode (which allows to connect external USB devices for instance modem) does not work with XP guests.

I will ask mods to move this question as its own thread in this Virtualization section, let's hope we will find you a solution or workaround.

Hi,

I have the guest account usable so that when guests come into our home they can use the computer, programs, internet, etc without being able to access our files.

Only for some reason, the guest account will not allow access to any of the programs - which defeats the purpose of having a guest account. Whenever, I try to open a program some sort of access denied message opens up. Word97 is one of the most frustrating as that is the one most used. But it is the same problem with all programs - not just Microsoft. I tried turning the guest off and back on. I discovered the answer to another problem while trying to solve this one. I have had the C drive as a shared file and an unshared file.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Our internet goes from:

Comcast modem to a
Dlink DIR-655
To computers or through a switchbox to other parts of the house
In the basement, is another switch box, and off that switchbox is,
Belkin 85c Wireless router, that we use as an access point
Works well but it says it has the ability to have a guest login, that will allow visitors to get to the internet, but are blocked from our LAN.

I've spent hours trying to set the guest login up, the access point can be seen by a computer/etc, but when they connect, they cannot get to the internet.

the windows 7 computers try to set up an unidentified public network.

I'm sure there is something very simple I am missing, but I've got close to 20 hours invested in it, and need to protect my network.

What is a guest account?

A guest account is an account for users who don't have a permanent account on your computer or domain. It allows people to use your computer without having access to your personal files. People using the guest account can't install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password.

You have to turn on the guest account before it can be used.

A:Am somehow now Guest User and can't log in admin

You could try cracking the password.

Windows 2000 and XP passwords are stored in a file called SAM (Security Accounts Manager). It's located in the windows\system32\config directory. Passwords are encrypted and stored within SAM as a password hash. Passwords look something like this: 8F J7 F3 GK S3 lL O4 E1 G9. To figure out your lost password, you have to extract the encrypted hash from SAM and crack it.

If no one else has any ideas that are less drastic I'll let them post before giving in-depth instructions on cracking your password.

A:Turned of guest user which was the administrator

Hi Kungfu Princess

Welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm a little confused (which isn't difficult for me), did you not say that you changed your Guest Account to an Administrator Account so therefore you should have adequate permission to retrieve your files I would of thought.

May I suggest you click onto the Vista Tutorials link at the top of Vista Forums here and go to the User Accounts section which should provide you with the information you will need to rectify your little dilemna.

Kind Regards,

Neil

There is a game I am trying to play and it runs a program called Game Guard which is needed to play it. Game Guard needs to access the system32 folder in order for the game to work, but as I am on a Guest account, it will not work.

Is there anyway (using administrator) to be able to change very specific privileges so that the Guest account is able to access this folder?

I am using Windows XP Home Edition SP2.

This computer is only available to my family so there won't be any problems if this account were to access that folder.

Thanks in advance

I enabled the "Guest" user for my son to use when he visits, but when he tries to log on as "Guest" the message: "The User Profile Service service failed the login" appears.

I disabled Guest and re-enabled, but still the same message.

I created a user name just for him as a standard user, but when he logs on as "Joe", the same thing happens. I created 2-3 other accounts, all standard users, but can't log on to any of them.

I have no trouble logging on as myself (administrator).

After searching the forums I find similar issues in Vista, but not for Windows 7, and the registry entries seem to be different in Vista and I don't want to try the fixes in Windows 7.

A:Guest User has full folder access

They should not have access to anyone elses "User Name" directory.

Are you saying they do?

To prevent a common user without administrative rights from accessing a directory you would have to deny "users" those rights under the properties > security tab of the directory.

Careful you don't lock yourself out -- you should see a separate permissions authority for Administrators -- which you should be to carry out this change.

I would not deny access to the entire C drive. Just specific folders that you might not want accessed.

Guest mode has not been discontinued. If you go to start>control panel>user accounts guest mode is there and probaly off. If you are in admin mode you can click on guest and enable it

A:User Account reduced from Admin to Guest

Hello and welcome to the Forums!

I suggest you try to enable the built in administrator account, log out and then back into the new admin account and then see if you can change your user account back to being an administrator account.

Here are the tutorials you will need to do this:

Administrator account - Enable or Disable in Windows 10

Account Type - Change in Windows 10

Notice that there are several options for doing each change - you may need to try more than one before you find the one that works for you.

Hope this helps!

A:Question about Guest user image & sharing

The Guest account has very little permissions and does not have sharing capabilities. If you really need to do this, you might try a new account with "Limited" settings.

You may want to set up the "Limited" account as a "Admin" and then change it to Limited after you have made all of the wanted settings.

I have an application that will run under all accounts on an XP pro box except Administrator. The application is server.exe, which is part of the 3dsmax Backburner network rendering package. I've installed this application on several other XP pro boxes without difficulty. When I double click on the server.exe, the hourglass briefly flashes, but the app never starts. I've verified that the program is listed as an excepetion to Bitdefender, my virus app, as well as completely disabled BD and Windows defender, to no avail.

I believe this problem is permissions based, obviously I'm not an expert. I've looked at the permissions for the Administrator account, and it is fully authorized. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled both 3ds max and Backburner, with no success. If I create a new user account, server.exe runs normally. The only account it won't run under is Administrator.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I was told to never use the Guest user account as it was not safe to use. I was told that I should open up another standard account without a password.

What have you learned and how good do you feel about the source of this info?

A:Is the Win8 Guest user profile account unsafe to use?

Hello rfharbin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Actually a standard account has more rights than a guest account, so creating a standard account that's not password protected is a lot more unsecure.

If you want someone to have temporary access to your computer, you can turn on the guest account. People using the guest account can't install software or hardware, change settings, or create a password unlike they could in a standard account.
Guest Account - Turn On or Off - Windows 7 Help Forums
Instead, I would recommend to either create a standard account with a password, or turn off the guest account when it's no longer needed say after your house guest leaves.

Hope this helps some,

Hi there
I'm using Windows 8.1 Enterprise RTM

At the login screen I see my user ID and a Guest user. Can I hide the guest user at login screen - I only want to see my user.

I DON'T want to boot in bypassing the sign on screen. (Note this is NOT the same as booting direct to desktop !!!).

This is new in Windows 8.1 RTM - I never had this in previous editions of windows.

(Note I really don't want to DISABLE the account - I just don't want to see it at login).

A:At login screen Hide Guest User (Windows 8.1 RTM)

Hello Jimbo,

By default, Windows 8 only shows the last account that signed out at sign in. Normally, you would have to click on the back arrow button to see all accounts at sign in.

Other than disabling the account, the only other way that I know of is to set Windows to require users to enter both a user name (email address for Microsoft accounts) and password at sign in instead of just selecting an account and entering it's password.

Sign in with User Name and Password in Windows 8

A:[SOLVED] broken icons on guest and limited user accounts

Okay, what you've done is kind of cool, and you are very lucky that it works as well as it does.

The easiest, "magic bullet" solution is to run a "Repair Install" using the XP Installation disk that is "married" to the Product Key of the software installed on the (relocated) Hard Drive. If you are not 100% certain you have the correct disk for that Product Key, do not try this option because if the disk refuses the Product Key, the process will freeze, and you will lose the limited functionality that you have right now. In short, you will go permanently backwards.

First thing to do is identify the motherboard of the new computer, download the drivers (know sometimes as "chipset drivers") and install them. This would be the #1 (most likely) reason why a (I'll call it a...) "migrated installation" would have problems, as the original installation was configured to the original motherboard, it naturally follows that you would need to supply it with the correct drivers for the motherboard it is now being used with.

On my computer I need to have a guest account. The problem is that other computers on this network connected to the internet via my computer so my computer needs to have static IP address of 192.168.0.1 but when Guest account is logged in my system forgets the static IP address I have set in my other admin account. I am not even sure that LAN is connected when the Guest account logs in.

My admin account is logged in and locked so I suppose all programs and settings there should still be working.

How do I make sure that my ethernet settings are working the same way for guest account too. I am not worried about Guest account being able to access the local network.

A:How to Enforce Static IP address for all user accounts including guest

Devices get IP's not accounts!!

192.168.0.1 is usually a default gateway address not a machine address...unless you've changed you modems configs around?

192.168.0.0 is your LAN Network Address
192.168.0.1 is your Default Gateway Address.
192.168.0.2 would be the 1st available IP assigned by your modem (DHCP)

You say other machines connect through yours to access the net??
Expand on that please.

You are using the correct net user guest /active:no command, but you must be logged in as an administrator to be able to do so, and use the command in an "elevated" command prompt.

Your best bet probably would be do not display any accounts.

But your users would have to memorize login. Or you can write a little note right on the Welcome screen wallpaper by editing it in Paint and changing it.

Hey all I have spent the weekend trying to figure out how to change my account user changed to back account Main type guest, can't change type back to administrator but with no luck I have been running this laptop as my main machine for a few months now with no problems however I realised I had a problem when I wanted to change some networking settings on Friday when the UAC said I needed admin privileges and wouldn't let Main user account type changed to guest, can't change back me enter a password or click quot Yes quot hence not allowing me to go any further I went to control panel gt User accounts and saw my account type has been changed to Guest Now I have thought long and hard and I have not changed or had any need to change my account type to guest nor has anyone else had access to my laptop so I can only assume this has been done in the last week or so during a Windows update I'll tell you what I did to try to resolve this below First of all I tried to enable the hidden administrator account while in my account by running command prompt as admin and then entering net user Administrator active yes but as I don't have admin privileges I couldn't even open the command prompt so I couldn't get any further After reading around the net and this forum I found this thread and gave it a try After restarting the laptop and booting into safe mode I was expecting to see and Administrator account next to my account at the log in screen however there was only the administrator account to choose from so I clicked it and it went through the first time initialisation of the account and then showed me the start menu I then went to run the command prompt as admin and it worked I entered net user Administrator active yes which worked with no problems I then went to the user accounts in control panel to quot Manage other accounts quot but my usual account was nowhere to be found So I thought I'd restart the laptop and see what happens out of safe mode When it restarted I was still only presented with the admin account so I logged in to disable the hidden by entering net user Administrator active no in the command prompt run as admin and then restarted After restarting again I was expecting to see my account but was still presented with only the admin account but when I clicked on it it said it was disabled and I was completely locked out of windows Luckily I created a restore point so I managed to restore my settings and was back at square one After a bit of testing it seems my main user account is being removed when I enter safe mode but do nothing else I have no idea why entering safe mode is removing my account I am at a bit of a loss as I can't seem to activate admin privileges on my account but if i try to fix it I lose my account completely I did find this thread but I can't find the download link for Hiren's boot cd If anyone has any help fixes or advice I'd really appreciate it as I don't really want to restore my laptop to factory Even if I do restore it to factory will this problem happen again Any help would be absolutely great Cheers Mark

A:Guest user can'n mount a USB drive after August 14th patches. Requires Admin rights.

Have you tried setting the Guest up as Power Users? For the USB drive are you talking about thumb drives or flash drives? I ended up changing the drive letter (after plugging the flash into the USB) to X (you could use whichever letter you don't currently use) because students and teachers were having problems accessing their thumb drives. This solved the problem for us.

How to enable hardware virtualization in Aptio Setup Utility?
I am not able to enable it in BIOS.
I want this because while installing Androin 4.4 in Virtualbox it is giving some error.

I have also uploaded Speccy CPU configuration which states that virtulization is supported and few pics of my BIOS.
Thanks.

A:How to enable hardware virtualization in Aptio Setup Utili

Hello,

Most important question: What is the error? We're not all-knowing here.
It might not be VT-x related at all, Android should be x86 in a VM and expect it to act weird.

Check the Virtualbox forums for specific details.
But a bit more on the VT issue:
I got a pc (here Medion) with Aptio as well. Problem is that I have AMD cpu on this one so the comparison won't help much.
Here the BIOS reports virtualization is on, I think. If your pc is new this year/last year, than VT-x should normally be on by default.

BUT: here Speccy says virtualization is disabled as well! Be careful, it might be a false warning. I can use virtualization in Virtualbox: the tab is enabled and I don't get any errors/warnings. So VT is ON even if Spaccy says it isn't. Check multiple sources to make sure.

Actually a good place to look is the VM log: Vbox.log in the VM folder: I see in my case AMD-V is used so virtualization is enabled.

Code:
00:00:03.677075 HM: Using AMD-V implementation 2.0!


In your case for Intel you should search for VT-X because it will report it ON or OFF.
Sorry, I'm not on my Intel machine at the moment but the previous lines should tell you what you need.

Good luck.

I think the user CSS file that you talk about affects all websites. If you want only one website to be affected you will have to install a add-on I think.

IE7Pro (works with IE8) or GreaseMonkey should work. You can look at userscripts made by other persons to find out how it works.

One of the user in the network can not enable or disable his local area network connection. Every time he connects his laptop after undocking it, it asks him for administrator credentials. Its a vista machine in a domain environment. User is added to the poweruser group but still can not make changes to the connection. Other users dont need to punch in admin password when they hookup to the docking station/network.

Any suggestions? thanks

Hi,

Sorry for my bad english...

This is my problem :
I have a HP Probook 5310m with Win 7 Pro 32 bits.
I've been using it for 6 months without a problem.

Yesterday, when i tried to connect (after hibernation), my password was rejected. I tried to make a second and third attempt with ware : same. I know my password, it's the same as the password of network access of my company. After that, the user was locked!
-> I don't know why my password was rejected, really don't!

Unfortunately, i did'nt enabled the Administrator account!
So now : i really don't know how to fix this huge problem (for me)!

HP told me to swith off the CMOS battery, but i'm really not sure this is a good solution.

Anybody has an idea?

Many Thanks

Vincent

A:User locked - No Admin enable - How may i fix this stuff?

If this is a company owned PC, contact your company's IT pro. If it's your windows user account login password, clearing the CMOS won't do any good. It may just make things worse.

Hi all I'm specific LAN user/enable wireless only Disable for connection setting up a computer for public access to a local site repository There are two accounts admin account running a virtual machine as server for the local site I need access to LAN through wired ethernet in this account Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only public account the account for the users to navigate the repository I need to disable the LAN access and just enable internet access through the public wireless interface I thought I could just disable ethernet card for the public account on the Group policies but I Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only didn't find out the way to do it I've created a group policy for the public account but under quot user configuration - gt administrative templates - gt network - gt network connections quot I only see options for enable disable LAN properties settings etc and not LAN access itself --- gt Is it possible to disbable hardware for specifc users In that case I could just disable the wired card driver for public user Thanks in advance

A:Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only

Ok, I go again (trying to do my best in english!) :

-There are two interfaces in the network:
a- LAN-> access through wired connection. Only for enabled MACs on the router
b- Public access to internet -> through wireless connection. For everyone.

-I cannot use router rules (for instance blocking MAC address, time settings, etc.) as far as I need both connections enabled at the same time, any time: wired for admin account and wireless for standard user account. Both users could use the computer at any time.

-I know I can set up preferred connections, but what I actually want is to prevent any way for the standard user to get connected to the LAN.

-On Group policies I've already disabled access to network settings and IE options for the standard user.

I appreciate any help (and really need it). Thanks!!

Okay so i dont have access to any administrator accounts due to the fact that our admin forgot his password and the rest of us are standard users. So can we enable it as a standard user to use the admin account in safe mode?
 

A:Can you enable the built in adminstator account as a standard user?

To run the command net user Administrator active:yes in Command Prompt, you must first type net user Administrator followed by the name of an Administrative account and the password. Try it with one of your accounts but I can't see it working. To bring up the Command Prompt, use the Windows key and R together.

If that won't work, you'll need to reinstall Windows 7.

Is there an easy way for me to change the logon option setting to Ctrl-Alt-Del? In W2K there was an easy checkbox setting in users from the control panel. And upgrading to WXP kept that setting. With WinXP preinstalled in a notebook, the logon screen comes up immediately from power up. I would like to require the intermediate step of manually pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del keys before the logon screen appears. I'm willing to reinstall W2K first and then reinstalling WXP as I also want to replace the existing notebook hdd with another larger capacity drive if I cannot find an acceptable answer soon.

I have already tried through the User Control Panel.
Screenshot of error is here

The program causing it is needed for my DLINK wireless card. I just upgraded this machine from 512 MB of RAM to 2 GB, if that matters.

I will not install the program, as if I do, the wireless card (and internet access) ceases to function.

Please help me re-enable it!

suggests that it's a known issue. The D-Link card probably installs its own login module which overtakes the Microsoft one (msgina.dll = Microsoft Graphical Identification and Authentication) (there was a similar case with some Intel adapters).
The post was about a month ago, so I'd check with D-Link on a regular basis to see if they've released a patch or an updated driver.

other ideas:
http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=2689.msg17706
perhaps uninstall everything D-Link related, then reinstall, but during installation pick manual installation (if there is such a step), then install just the driver - don't install the utility.

Hi,
I have established a 'Guest' user account on my new PC (Windows XP Media Center edition) for use of the babysitter or anyone else staying so they can browse the web and check emails etc. I cannot set up an Internet connection for it. It works OK as long as I leave my broadband connection running, but will will not establish a connection from booting up. I can not set up a connection from 'Internet options' on the connections tab when in the 'Guest account' as is says 'not logged on as administrator'. Please keep any instructions 'simple' 'cos I'm not that good!
Regards,

Trev
