Q: Can't Find Local Users and Groups in Computer Management


While trying to set-up a SQL Server account in Computer Management I've discovered that "Local Users and Groups" doesn't exist under System Tools tree. I select Start > Computer (right click) > enter admin. password > Computer Mgmt. opens and under System Tools there is no listing for "Local Users and Groups". Any help will be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Can't Find Local Users and Groups in Computer Management

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.)

Hello Gdawg,

I'm sorry, but Local Users and Groups is not available in the Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, and Home Premium editions.

In our setup we have one local account only (not a Microsoft account also). We tried to Run gpedit.msc but it "cannot be found." And Local Users and Groups is not listed in the Computer Management panel. After adding another local account the Local Users and Groups is still not visible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Another question: is the main local account setup as Administrator?

A:in COMPUTER MANAGEMENT Local Users and Groups missing

Welcome to EightForums, thisisallen. Good to have you.

Yes, the main account should be an Admin account.

I hope that gets you pointed in the right direction.

After forgetting the local administrator password, I followed that guide for offline editing the SAM registry file. This clearly caused a problem, because no I see no users in LUAG as per the attached. All the accounts work fine, except the built-in administrator account which I can't do anything with (if I try to enable it using the 'net user' command, net crashes).

I suspect I may just have to live with this, but does anyone have any suggestions about how to 'clean' the administrator account in the registry so that LUAG works again?


A:No users visible in Local Users and Groups

Check your Windows version!

If you have the Windows 10 Home edition, then it will not have Local Users and Groups (lusrmgr.msc) included in it. It's only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions instead.

What command(s) you use to activate the Administrator?

Does anyone know of a quick and easy way to add all of the user's of a domain to the local power users group on their machines? For instance, if I have a network of 100 users and I want to add each user to the local power users group of their own PC, can I do this somehow? I'm thinking through a script or some other tool. Anyone know how this can be done without visiting each desktop? I'm talking about W2K Pro desktops (maybe a few NT 4 Workstations) on a W2K network with Active Directory (and a few NT 4 servers).

I was setting up local group policies on a laptop so I could apply them to non-admin accounts. Well I goofed and accidentally applied the policies to all users including the admin. The problem is I was restricting access to all programs except a certain few like internet explorer, remote desktop, etc as users will only need to access their webmail and remote desktop to access the terminal server. Now I cannot do anything with the admin profile because the policy was applied to my account as well. What can I do??

A:Accidentally applied local group policy to all user groups

Which Administrator account did you apply this to? The default or did you enable the built-in Administrator account and apply it to that also?

If you didn't go through any steps to activate an admin account previously, you could probably enable the built-in one and change the settings for the normal Administrator account.

A:Audio Service on Local Computer. Error 3: The system can't find path

Hi pcb79,

Please check status of the 'Dependency' for 'Windows Audio Service'; and check if 'Windows Audio Endpoint Builder' is functional. You may follow these steps: Click 'Start' & type 'Services.msc' in the search box and tap 'Enter'.

Also check the following services and ensure that they show 'Status as Started & are set to Automatic':
- Audio Service
- Multimedia Class Scheduler
- Windows Audio
- Windows Audio Endpoint Builder
Note: Please create a system 'Restore Point'; for future use, if needed: System Restore Point - Create

If the issue persists, try re-installing the 'audio drivers' to see if that helps; updating them may not work. To check the 'audio card' installed in the nit, you may follow these steps:
- Open 'Device Manager' > Expand 'Sound, Video & Game Controllers' > Right click and uninstall the 'Audio Card' drivers > Follow through with the uninstall and allow the system to restart > Allow 'Windows' to update the 'Audio drivers' automatically > Check if the issue persists (Please share the system make/model if you face ambiguity)

If you still experience issues, try to reset 'Windows Services' to 'default settings': Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 7

If nothing works, please run the 'SFC Diagnostic Tool' to check the integrity of files in 'Windows': SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
- Follow 'Option 3' to capture the CBS logs and share for investigation

I would also like to have a closer look at the 'System Logs' for a better understanding. Please check the steps listed in the following thread and share details. The tool may not find any 'Blue screen errors'; however, system logs and other information may prove useful: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

A:[W7] User management on Family PC - Admin and user groups

In Vista and Windows Seven the default account in the Administrator group that is created, is roughly equivalent to the Operators Group that was extant in NT Server 4. You could do things like install programs, register COM dlls etc.. but you could not delete system files.

I think it's a pretty good compromise.
But then again I turn UAC off altogether. So maybe I can't be trusted.

A:How to setup users/groups/permissions for a user "home" folder

If you do not want a user to have access to certain folders, it is fairly simple to do. For instance, say you do not want a user to see other user's files. With your administrator account, do the following:

1. Click start menu
2. Click My Computer/Computer
3. Open C: (or whatever drive your users folder is in)
4. Open the Users folder
5. Right click your administrator user folder
6. Click Properties
7. Click the Security tab
8. Click Edit
9. (You don't want username John to open this folder ever) Click Add
10. Type in John (or the username you do not want to access the folder) and hit Enter
11. Under the Deny column, put a check in Full Control.
12. Click OK and apply to all folders (you may need to do this in safe mode to apply to every folder since some folders will be in use in normal mode).

So it's all about this new computer...

My brother asked me to creat an account for him (limited rights), to use the computer as well... so I've did. But now, he's saying that he can't access one specific game, that is installed on a computer - Mount&Blade 1.011. Also, he's experiencing problems with Ashampoo Burning Studio 9 (or actually DVD+/-RW drive), that I've given access to him as well.

Maybe there's some outside-software for that... danno.

Any help would be appreciated!

A developer would only have admni rights to a test server in a test network where he can try out his application. Then when the application is ready, he writes the procedures down and hand it over to the IT admin who handle all administration of the application on the live serer.

Look a bit closer in Disk Management. Optical drives are only displayed in the graphical representation, and they don't have anything displayed on the right, just the drive letter and icon on the left. Right click on the drive icon and you can change it's drive letter.

Hello I have a group of computers joined to an AD domain that are running windows Enterprice and the DCs are windows R My objective is to get all of these computers about of them so that when any AD user logs in they all use the same profile folder under C Users This means that they would all have the same desktop my documents libraries and registry HKLU I have control over some about of the users that will be accessing these computers but most reside out of the OU that I manage so I figured I would have to use some sort of GPO loopback for this to happen I have been looking around for a way to do this but unfortunately I have not come accross anything that will let me do this However recently I was taking a class a my local college and I notice that on AD Local for profile same Use users all the school's computer also windows when a user logs in with their own individual AD credentials they all get the same desktop Upon closer inspection any user that logged into a classroom computer got redirected to use the C users classroomuser profile This means that if I leave a file on the desktop and log out then the next user that logs in to that computer also sees that file in their desktop I checked the permissions for 'C users classroomuser' and it looks like 'everyone' 'administrators' and 'classroomuser' all have full access to that folder and its decendants I looked some more and it seems that domain users is part of their local administrators group as well And although this is a big no-no they do have a price of software installed on all their PCs that allows them to restore the systems back with a simple reboot in the event that someone trashes it In either case I kept looking around to try and figure out how they were doing this so a ran a rsop msc Use same Local profile for all AD users command to see what policies they were using to do this but I couldn't see anything outside of firewall settings and regular system lockdown info I looked in the registry under HKEY LOCAL MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion ProfileList and noticed that there were only two listed users aside from the builtin stuff one was classroomuser and one was my own However they both had the same value for 'ProfileImagePath' My questions are how did they manage to do set the value of that ProfileImagePath variable for my user when I logged into the system if I did not see this under any setting on GPO how can I achieve the same functionality

I have a list of 5 users but no one created them they all have files one is the owner which has her name then there is one that says public and one that says default and then all. I need to organize all files with the workers that are here what can I do?

A:users on windows 8 under my pc : local disk c

What exactly are all five called? Most of them are folders created and required by Windows and you need to leave them. The only files in those users(profiles) are those required by Windows to create new profiles or by files that are used across all profiles. All Users, Default, Default User, Public are always there, although most are hidden by default. You'll also have at least one other account for the actual user. The username.Migrated folder gets created when you switch account types from local to Microsoft Account or vice versa, that you can cleanup if you want. You may also have an Administrator account if it was enabled and used.

So In all my searching I can't really find a workaround for this. I have a domain and plenty of domain users but I have one department that remains local user accounts. All I want to do is set the default homepage for these 47 domain connected machines.
So with domain users I can use loopback policy to apply the user gpo settings to any computer in those specific OU's.  But that simply will not apply to local accounts.  Any other thoughts on how to make this work centrally?  Not super interested

see reference link :

And now, while everything appears to be back to normal, I am facing this issue.
Need advice to ...
1. What are those empty folders ?
2. Are they safe to delete? I have a feeling they will reappear after deleted.
3. How do I get my Application Data folder back under Local ?
4. Are the 2 co-related ?

My new Dell desktop runs Vista Home Premium and has a 600GB internal hard drive.

My system backs up to an ext drive daily, and it looks like the Vista back-up app is ALSO stashing back up files on the internal hard drive under:

c:\users\pc\AppData\Local\Temp folder.

I deleted all these back up files, but they're coming back.

How do I keep them from coming back?

A:c:\users\pc\AppData\Local\Temp folder

those are temporary files that windows & other programs create because they are needed for certain operations.

Just one example, when my antivirus says an update is avilable, it is downloaded to the temp folder then installed from there.

The problem is they are never deleted, you either have to do it manually or download a program like ccleaner to clean them out.

A:My Kingdom for Local Admin Rights for My Users

The way to do it is to login to the computer with domain admin permissions (that's often the administrator account on the domain controller), manage local computer, local users and groups, administrators group, add, and choose the user that's supposed to have local admin privileges. Click OK for everything and you're good. A method I've used before is to create a group for each computer, add that group to the local administrators group, then you can add or remove a user from the groups as necessary. You can find out how to do it with group policy here --> which is the top result in a google search for "how to grant local admin domain". I can't say I'm impressed with your searching skills unless this doesn't answer your question.

Hey everyone We've been experimenting with running a batch script to backup incremental files for users within Script failing to run for Logoff local users. our domain We've found that when the script is run Logoff Script failing to run for local users. using an Admin account or by adding the local user to the Admin's group the script will kick off and run as it should during the Log Off phase However due to security issues we cannot have all the users having full administration credentials on the systems so we cannot go down this path The Local user account when the batch script is run manually runs and back's up the files as it should But on Log off the script doesn't even run within the log Logoff Script failing to run for local users. files there is an Access Denied error x Now whilst I can tell this is user permissions error I've fiddled around with configurations and settings on the local device the target device on the network and even user accounts yet I cannot seem to get this script to execute as it should on Logoff using a standard user account Folder permissions are all setup so that the users can read write and there is no issues with either as the script will run manually with no output errors and all files successfully copy over I am absolutely stumped at the moment as everything I have tried does not seem to solve the issue Only using admin credentials seems to work and due to policies we cannot allow the users to have Admin rights I'm assuming I've missed something simple so if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome If you need any further info please let me know thanks Ry

If you suspect something is amiss with this batch file of yours, we could take a look at it. You'll need to post snippet of this script first (preferably the lines that you think are the cause) for us to view.

First post here and I am glad I found this forum. I would like to be able to share certain folders on my windows 7 computer with network users. I would like to be able to do this without windows 7 creating a long list of local users that it asks me to choose from when I boot my computer. Am I wrong for thinking that it should be able to list and assign permissions for network users sepereate from actual users of this computer?

A:Sharing folderswithout creating all these local users!!


Just right-click on the folder you want to share and click Properties. In the Sharing tab, set the permissions to give other users access.

Here's my situation. I've got a computer that's shared by several people (in a small church library), which I'm trying to lock down in a controlled fashion.

The system is running Windows XP Professional. In addition to the administrator account, I've created one restricted account for the librarian, which is password-protected, and one restricted account with no password for everybody else. It's a stand-alone computer -- no domain, no domain controllers, no active directory.

I've successfully implemented a local group policy which prevents users from doing things like changing screen resolution, screen saver settings, etc. But I'd like to have this restriction apply only to the one "everybody" account, and not to the other accounts, and I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. Is it possible? What are the steps involved?


A:Local group policy -- how to select users?

Hello, Tom, and welcome to TSF. If the "open to everyone" account is used by really numerous individuals, of varying levels of IT competence, then I would strongly suggest you take some time and have a look at a utility provided gratis by Microsoft, the Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP. Invest some time to browse all the area I've linked for you, and please post back if you really think this is what will effectively help you keep this computer under your control, your way, all the time.

I have this message every time I start up my laptop "there was a problem starting C/Users/appdata local temp7369149cos2350679.exe"

It only seems to effect when I am playing content through VLC etc and the general running of the system as a whole,

Ran Anti-Virus and was clean but suspect it it a result of a malware attack I suffered recently, which has now gone but this message still remains,

I'm using SCCM 2012 R2 to generate reports of the local users and groups on each PC, but it doesn't give the date/time or the username of the person gave them these rights.

A:How do I prevent all users access to the local Admin's My Documents

No users have access to any other user's profile directory. "C:\Users\[username]" The only way they can get access is if they are an Administrator. The next way is if you are changing the permissions to give everyone access. But the default state for Windows is no user has access to another user's profile directory. Most likely you have done something to set it up to give users access or your method for detecting this is flawed. (I.e. you are using an Admin account to check the access of the directory, an Admin account can and will override permissions to give itself access.)

I have been regularly deleting those empty folders. Not a big deal, just annoyance.
How did that happen ?
Someone had suggested that it has something to do with WLM. If so, anyway to stop them from appearing under Local ?
IF WLM does not cause that, then what causes that ?


A:C:\users\username\Appdata\Local ....... empty folders

It is WLM that creates these. I don't think there is a way to stop it. I just delete them when they get enough to annoy me.

I have two external drives on my PC.  I have younger users that some content would not be appropriate for.  Is there a way to limit what is accessible to them in My Computer?  Is there a way to choose what local drives may be viewed by specific users?
Thank you!

A:How can I restrict local drive view from non Admin users?

You can simply remove drive access permission by editing the security properties of the drive. To do this follow the instructions.
A ) Right click on the file, folder, or drive that you want to grant a user or group permissions for, and click on Properties.
In the Security tab, and click on the Edit button. (see screenshot below)
B ) Select a user or group that you want to change the permissions for, then check  Deny boxes for all items. 
C ) When finished, click on OK. D ) If prompted, click on Yes. E ) Click on OK.

Does anyone know how to exclude a user from accessing anything on
a local computer , but still be able to use a shared program from that
machine? IE. not be able to see the computer or folder through
my network places or through computer management "shares" folder
or be able to change any settings on the aformentioned machine?
Basically, I want to share a program but not have that user have the
ability to change anything on this "server". It is a peer to peer setup
with XP pro running on all machines. I have tried everything from
sharing and security - but it is my understanding that a Group Policy /
Local Policy should be setup for this machine which would prevent access?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Local Group Policy - program excusions for users

How are they going to access it if you take away all the permissions from accessing? I see your quandary. Not sure how you are going to give them permissions to use something that you don't want them to use.

You can deny them local login access to the machine but if they need access to something over the network they have to see it to be able to use it.

First let me say I spend almost ALL my time in the desktop and my main pc's still have win When I upgraded an old win laptop to I used my HotMail account After getting some Store apps and setting & merge Can 1-HotMail 1-Live I users. user? 1-Local to up SkyDrive I decided I did not 1-HotMail & 1-Local users. Can I merge to 1-Live user? like having MS see everything so I created a local account and was able to move most data over I think from using the Public folders except for some DRM'ed Flash video courses On both accounts desktop I believe I installed the win Skydrive download Next I upgraded in-place to and basically had to repeat this process all over again Upgrading to and trying to get password protected file makes me think I might cave to MS 1-HotMail & 1-Local users.

A:1-HotMail & 1-Local users. Can I merge to 1-Live user?

Hello chockfullof,

No worries. When you purchase apps in the Store, you will always be able to download and install it again without having to purchase it again.

If you like, here's a workaround if you wanted your current local account to be your Microsoft account, but your current Microsoft account will be switched and deleted.

Switch your Microsoft account to be a local account.Switch you old local account to be your Microsoft account now. Your settings from the Microsoft account will automatically sync.Any modern apps not installed in the now Microsoft account, you can use "Your Apps" (OPTION ONE below) in the Store to install them again without having to purchase them again.
Apps - Install Metro Apps from Windows 8 StoreYou may need to create shortcuts for any desktop programs that you don't have from the old Microsoft account now local account in the now Microsoft account.Copy anything else you wanted form the old Microsoft account now local account in the now Microsoft account.When everything checks out, you could delete the old Microsoft account now local account from first step.
Hope this helps,

I've searched long and hard for an answer to this but I've found very little info on it so I'm starting to wonder if it's at all possible On some of our quot Presenter PC's quot at work it Shared Into to a Active Force Directory Log Profile. Users Local has been deemed that the creation Force Active Directory Users to Log Into a Shared Local Profile. of a new account from the Default profile takes too long when logging into Active Directory and slows presenting down too much Our Default profile is probably around Mb due to the contents of the image after deployment and how every application is tailored for Force Active Directory Users to Log Into a Shared Local Profile. use hence the AppData folder takes the bulk of the size up and it's not an option to remove it These PC's are for now at least but hopefully not for much longer locked down by Deep Freeze which resets all changes to all files when the PC is rebooted so a shared profile is not a problem at this point in time What I want to know is whether there is ANY way to make it so that a user authenticating to Active Directory can ALWAYS be forced into a pre-configured local profile running on Win Pro I've been looking at credential providers and replacing USERINIT exe I'm just not sure which part of the process actually tells the PC which profile to use I know that the registry is checked for the user GUID and if not present creates a new entry and copies the Default profile but I don't know quite where this is called and how to modify it My programming knowledge limited to a bit of CMD and AutoIt but I do know a few coders so if we really have to get our hands dirty on this it isn't the end of the world I should also add I've recently been toying with taking the AppData folder outside of the Default profile and creating a SymLink to it but upon copying the Default profile to a new profile much quicker and more acceptable the SymLink is lost and replaced with a relatively empty set of folders which can't be deleted and replaced with a SymLink because the LSASS exe process is using it and obviously you can't stop that process Making the PC log into a local profile on startup is also not an option because a user MUST log into AD to not be in breach of our AUP and all network drives must be availalbe mapped by GPo and login script Any help is more than welcome at this point in time as I've pretty much exhausted all avenues that I know of and have turned to you helpful folk nbsp Cheers
