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 couple months ago my friend fell for a Microsoft call scam.  She let them in remotely.  I have been trying to help her get rid of whatever malware or ransomware there is.  When I boot normal it gives an error that the Desktop is unavailable and locked.  When I boot to safe mode it says it could not log into the user accounts profile. I added the admin login but I still can not change anything in user accounts.  I have tried the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10, Malwarebytes, Super antispyware, and CCleaner, nothing has changed.  I can still recover her personal items in an old data folder the scammers saved, but I would really like to recover the computer.  Any help would be appreciated.

I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins).

Any suggestion on what to do?

I have been using this computer for a while and got it set up like I want it. Last night I created additional user accounts to allow someone else to use the computer without being able to access everything (limited). The first account i created would not let me make it limited...it was permanently check marked admin, so I had to create one more account that i could make limited. When all was done, I deleted the limited account but i was unable to delete the additional admin account. The problem I have is, where did my original admin desktop and all the files and settings go??!! I cannot find it and the items i had saved there. How can i get things back to the way they were??? Thanks for any help you can give me!

A:Help! Lost original Admin when making new user accounts!

It should still be there. I am assuming you were using the "Administrator" account?

To get to it, at the welcome screen do CTRL-ALT-DEL twice until a username/password box appears. Then Type in Administrator for username and then your password and hit OK. This should let you into your desktop.

It wouldn't be that much of a problem if the UAC didn't prompted me every now and then (like when I try to run .exe files or do things that require admin rights) and asked for the admin password (which is "blank", as there is no digit in it). Not only that but also there's nowhere to "type" the password in the UAC prompt.
Is there anyway to solve this? I'm willing to do things as re-install windows, but no format because I don't want to lose my file. If you guys could show me a way to solve this without re-installing windows it would be much appreciated.

I think I would move that file you don't want to lose to an external drive or to the cloud before you loose it.

Hi,

I've recently had to run the recovery console on my PC, which created a new windows XP profile. It kept the same username (and even profile picture) but not installed programs or files.

I found the files in the "document & settings" folder on the C: but in another profile folder. The installed programs in the program files folder in my C:.

Is there a way that I can switch back to this profile? I've tried switching profiles when logging off, but I am not given the option and in "User accounts" in the control panel there is only 1 account present.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Regards.

Thank you!

I am admin ( WIN 7 Pro 64 computer 4 years old): In admin user default account, any and ALL open, and .exe functions denied.

CMD right click 'run as admin' (net user admin etc.) has no effect. Checking all folders I show FULL permission. Right click 'run as admin' has no effect on any file.

Created new USER with ADMIN functions and all works in that account.

Q: How can I trouble shoot my normal ADMIN account (it has all of my 1000s of folders, programs etc.)
Q: Or how can I transfer all of my doc to my new user internally? (Without backup to external drive etc)

This happened after a Microsoft standard update weeks ago. I tried restore, but restore fails. By now I have done much on the computer and restore not an option.
I have not been able to open or run any program files.

Any help I would be grateful!

A:Admin User Error5. CMD solutions failed. New User with ADMIN works

Wow. 2 days and not a single suggestion or reply?

Is this a really a simple common error? Is that why no replies? Or is there no help for it?

I searched the forums for hours over 2 days reading multiple posts and possible solutions and came up empty. Nothing applicable to my situation.

I have tried:
1. System restore. It always fails, even in SAFE mode or REPAIR mode.
2. Run as administrator (Both from right click and from CMD)
3. Sharing all folders (Although this ADMIN account has all privileges/permissions as it is anyway)
This created a 2nd ADMIN account. Don't know why.
4. Reset all privileges back to default settings.

Have not tried to re-install windows as I don't have a copy of Win 7. Plus I would like to avoid the reality of reinstalling so many programs and files.

Right now when the Original Admin user tries to run a .exe, I get a "Setup was unable to create the directory "...etc..." Error 5 access denied.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. It would at least get me moving trying some things. Thank you.

I have created two new user accounts. The first I set up as a standard account, logged on, did a few things, then logged off, logged on as my administrator account and editted the account to be an administrator. When I log back on as this account, it appears that the user still does not have administrator privileges even though under the user it says "Administrator". For example, the UAC control does not appear when you click on "Change User Account Control Settings". Also, trying to install software where the installer asks for admin privileges fails. However, the second account created started as an adminstrator account and exhibits neither of these problems.

I just haven't seen anything in posts about this and wonder what the difference is and if there is anything that "second class" administrator user can do to become a "first class" administrator.

Does UAC control display a confirmation question? this is the case for administrator accounts
Does UAC control ask for username/password? This is the case for standard accounts
Change the account back (just for testing) to standard account. Does it ask for username/password when changing system settings?
system built-in admin account has admin rights always
manually made account with admin rights has only admin rights after you allow it in the UAC control popup.
manually made account without admin rights has only admin rights after you allow it in the UAC control popup (enter a admin's username and password).
That's how it should work

First run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt but I doubt this will work.

You could then try a repair install which keeps all your programs and settings (backup everything first!). See Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

Hi,
I have just obtained a new machine, which will also be used by some children for basic learning. I would ideally like to restrict use of the machine under their profiles so that they cannot, for example, change system settings, change the registry, change display settings, create shortcuts to programs for which I have not given them access via the start menu or desktop, etc.

I used to use a program called poledit.exe in order to restrict individual profiles, but that only functioned under Windows 95 and Windows 98 SE1. I am currently using Windows XP Pro. Does anybody have any suggestions of an alternative program I would be able to obtain in order to restrict individual profiles in the way I have suggested, or another method for receiving this same result? Many thanks in advance for your responses.

Regards,
Chris

A:Restricting user profiles in Windows XP Pro

You can, under your administrator account, add a new user, and choose the limited account option. Under Control Panel>Admin Tools>Local Policies you can look through there and disable/enable functions from there.

A:Windows 7 Corrupt User Profiles

If you don't have the space to create another profile, then you probably have problems with the system because of that.
A user profile takes less than 200mb to create.
 
Windows likes to have about 15% free space in order to do things in the background.
As you get even less free space, the system has to work harder to perform these background tasks.
Eventually, when there's little free space, the system slows to a crawl while trying to do it's essential background operations in a limited space.
 
I have vision problems and can't easily read the smaller text that you're using.
Also, the event viewer report should be in the .evtx format so that we can manipulate in order to see patterns.
 
Once you've freed up 15% free space, please provide this report:

 
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

Hey guys and ladies So i have scoured the forums looking for answers to my problem and have yet to get a definitive fix It may just be 2008 Windows Profiles Server with in User Help me though lol So I am an IT technician for some schools and i have just implemented a new server It is running Windows Server My client machines are running windows in the domain I have created all my user accounts already Help with User Profiles in Windows Server 2008 and set everything up However i have created one universal Student Account for all students to login with Heres my issue The students only have access to computers in our computer lab We have about machines in there and they run Windows Pro So lets say one student logs in and adds a bunch of items and shortcuts to the desktop Now all client machines also have these junk icons on their desktops when another user logs in on any machines in the Help with User Profiles in Windows Server 2008 lab under the student profile Is there something i can do to fix this And since i have already created the Student Account can anything i apply help to reverse what they have already done ie added a pile of shortcuts to the desktop etc I tried logging into a client machine under the student profile and in their default roaming profile deleted all the desktop icons i even tried locally changing the ntuser dat to ntuser man after i had deleted the icons but as soon as i log out and back in the icons all return I assume this is because the roaming profile desktop changes are stored server side on the share So I also tried locating the ntuser dat file for the student profile on the network path where i assumed the profiles are stored in Student V but there is no ntuser dat at that location only an ntuser ini file just need some help to figure out what im doin wrong Ideally i would like to prevent the student account from being able to edit anything on the desktop or delete anything off it as well I have no problem creating a new student account as well since no important info has been stored yet on this profile but i would like to do it correctly this time so any info is greatly appreciated And if i didn't explain things very well feel free to ask me any additional questions if it will help you guys help me Thanks for your time P S i hope that even though this is a server question its ok in the windows forums If not i apologize

A:Help with User Profiles in Windows Server 2008

The reason the Icons return is because i believe you are using a Citrix environment, if you was to look into your Citrix server farm under the Server they are connecting to have a look at there roaming profile there, it may be a wise idea to limit their privileges so they cannot save stuff on their desktop.

Using Vista Ulitimate every time a windows update installs and the computer restarts, I lose all the user profiles. I manage to restore sometimes and not update and other times I just recreate the user profiles.
Any ideas apart from windows 7 because this is becoming a pain.

Hey everyone First of all I want to thank Kari for this Users Folder - Move Location in Windows - Windows Forums tutorial and at the same time curse at him her making me have to deal with this broken ass Operating System Windows P The tutorial is the reason I wanted to give Windows another try after I had to remove my previous windows I generally use Profiles on User 10 encrypted Windows Partition different Truecrypt to encrypt all drives of my Desktop PC and relocate all typical user folders to a different partition There is no issue with this on Windows but Windows won't have it I followed the tutorial and got Windows 10 User Profiles on different encrypted Partition to the point that I had Windows 10 User Profiles on different encrypted Partition working an unencrypted Windows installation with the user profiles on the D Partition All fine and dandy Now I already guessed at the time that encrypting the D drive won't be a fun experience Luckily Truecrypt is strong enough to just rip away Windows control of the drive and began to encrypt it That made Windows cry like Windows 10 User Profiles on different encrypted Partition a baby without its pacifier but at least it didn't crash and Truecrypt was able to finish I could go into details on what sorcery I tried after that to restore order in the partition letters but the short version is that I was able to get my setup running but I still got the same error start menu wouldn't open up I would get if I wouldn't have followed the tutorial at all and just moved the folders manually after installing Once you move the local folder your account is bricked But even after creating a new User account the problem persisted which wasn't the case with the normal procedure without the tutorial So now after reinstalling I tried to encrypt everything using veracrypt this time in Audit mode which to my surprise worked pretty well until I ran sysprep That failed and now I am sitting at the language selection of the installation pondering if I should invest any more time in this schizophrenic Operating System Windows Version Windows Pro N x Bitlocker isn't an option because That shit most likely has more backdoors than a Shoppingmall Afaik you can't encrypt with a password Only with TPM or a dongle which isn't really an option Question here is if anyone has any Idea how I could make this work

Don't know about backdoors but bitlocker definitely does let you use a password without TPM or a dongle. I use it like that. Just turn of "TPM required" in group policy.

Don't know anything about TrueCrypt though, sorry.

A:Solved: Microsoft-Windows-User Profiles Service

Well it sounds like the profile is corrupted. Can you boot with administrative rights and access the profile manually?

You will probably have to rebuild it in another account.

You also may want to run chkdsk on the drive.

A:Windows 7 User profiles issue - Shows logging off after entering corru

Why would you expect Win7 to function correctly when you set about ruining it like that? Did you even create a System Restore point before acting so recklessly?

That's the first thing I'd check, working back before you ruined your install to a working configuration if System Restore will even run from the disk System Recovery Options .

If that fails, try SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot
from the Win7 disk or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line.

You may need to rescue your files and do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which will assure you get and keep a perfect install as long as you stick with only the tools and methods in the tutorial.

Hi

Ive stumbled across a problem that has been causing me grief for a few days now, every time I try to access my hard drive (C disk) it says, access is denied. Also, i cant edit permissions because I've lost admin rights. Ive tried many things including unlocking the system admin, this lets me access a few extra things like being able to use the sfc command in cmd, however, it doesn't allow me to access the C disk or change permission because it also has lost admin rights? I fear that this is a bad problem and I don't know how it happened. I have tried restoring to a previous date and that doesn't work either.

Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Shimin4tor

Hello there. I have migrated my data to an SSD from HDD with Intel picture copy software. I had and HDD Gateway DX4860 before and now I am on HP Pavilion 550-126. The new computer comes with HDD, but I have switched to the SSD. Everything was working fine until I have start playing with IE and suddenly the system start asking me for a password to login when the computer was waking up from a no usage state. I have tried to avoid that and played a little with the Admin settings. Now the situation got progressively worse, since I can no longer get Administrative access to anything and every time I encounter that issue the pop dialog is telling me that origins are on the HDD. I do not have the original PC anymore.

Can anybody suggest a solution to that case or perhaps something I can work with.?

Thank you in advance.

Hi user Windows Admin 8.1 This is my first post as I am a new member but hope someone can help For some reason over the past week the system has installed an Administrator on our PC and we cannot get any password to unlock it Neither Windows 8.1 Admin user of us have set a password We have tried just about everything we can - disable delete account through computer management changing the password using the command prompt but nothing works or we just get access denied We do not have a USB or anything to allow changes as the system is asking for We also do not have the original disc for the as we upgraded online a while ago And when I tried Microsoft help they wanted around to send a new back up disc Because of the restrictions we cannot download any programs etc to assist with deletion changes so any advice suggestions would need to NOT have to download anything or install anything Many thanks in advance Yvette

A:Windows 8.1 Admin user

Do the following and see if the new administrator disappears.
 
In the Search program and files box type cmd , when this appears in the pane above the Search box right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.
 
When the elevaded command prompt opens type in or copy and paste the following command and then press Enter.   net user administrator /active:no 
 
This will hide the default Administrator account as it normally should be.

Go to Start/Search and type CMD. Right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type ipconfig /Release and press enter. Your IP address should change to 0.0.0.0. Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew you should get a new IP address and the Network and Sharing should remove the yellow flag.

Hi,

I have Windows XP Professional in two of my employees PCs

Recently, I have observed they have started adding new software carelessly to the PC and are delaying work on the other hand

I would like to put an end to this menace

Can you please tell me how to:

1. Restrict software from being installed on the PCs

2. Restrict the websites that they log on to

3. Get a log of activities they have been doing daily

Maybe this is harsh however, I have to keep some control over them as all my accounts are managed on the PCs

Please help me

Hi,

Does anyone know how to stop the attached alerts? I got this one, just for renaming the C drive label, if I click Continue it works fine, but if I am logged in as an Admin user, that should be enough for me, so can we get rid of this alert?

I don't want to use the built in Administrator user, so I think I need to "elevate" my admin user account, but can't see how to do this for Windows 10 Pro.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

A:Elevate Windows 10 Pro Admin User

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance and set the UAC, (user Account Control), to the second from the top, which will slightly reduce your security settings but will remove the most annoying of the prompts.

You can of course set this to any of the available settings but anything lower than the second highest will reduce the in-built security to a level that can cause issues

How should i delete it completely??

A:How to delete windows admin user folder??

Hello Babyshoe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Once you enable the built-in Administrator account, you do not want to try and delete it's "C:\Users\Administrator" user profile folder. Doing so could cause you unwanted issues.

If you do not want to continue using the built-in Administrator account (good idea), then you could just disable it instead.

A:how to change IP address from a non admin user ID in windows 7 pro 64?

Hello,

Can't you just set the PC to boot of DHCP? I'm presuming you have a DHCP Server? If its installed on a Windows Server then you can reserve the address so that you dont have to mess with printer configuration again etc.

I believe the Power Users group may also have the right to change the IP address. The network configuration operator group should work though (as you said).

After upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1 - my standard user does no longer have administration rights.

in computer administration ->local user and Groups - the properties for the user shows that the user belongs the Group administrators.

However when I access the user account in the control panel the user shows up as "standard" and I cannot change that while logged in as standard user.

I have tried logging in as Administrator (using the built in administrator) - but here I am also unable to change the setting of the standard user from "standard" to "Administrator" - the "change account type" button
is greyed out and cannot be clicked.

I have tried everything I can think of, read all I could find on the net - but to no avail.

Hello Ivanhoe, and welcome to Eight Forums.

What other groups does Local Users and Groups show that the standard user belongs to?

While signed out of the standard account and signed in to the built-in Administrator, see if you may be able to use one of the other options in the tutorial below to change the account type of the standard user to be administrator.

Reboot into Safe Mode, it should show A choice of Administrator or user account, choose Administrator, and then create a new account and make it Administrator, Reboot back to normal mode and boot into this account

My friend recently bought a new Windows 8 laptop which she set up in her name and therefore has a passworded Admin account. I also partitioned the HD so that the smaller portion (C) contains the OS and the larger portion (D) is for all her files.

Since I am only using the laptop temporarily my passworded 'standard' user account is located in (C) and cannot be viewed by anybody else, however, I can view my friend's files which are now being stored in 'D'.

Is there a way to protect the files in the 'D' partition in the same manner as if all accounts were on one drive and password protected?

Tom.

when I set up computer 2 years ago, had 3 profiles (mine, Pops, Mom) and defaulted to admin on all. then changed Mom and Pops to non-admin.
Running XP SE all this time and have done all updates on a regular basis. After one of them (2 months ago), system came up with only one profile, Pops, and he's not an admin. In fact, it doesn't even recognize his password. But if I just hit Enter, it goes to a desktop. Having no admin status, I can't even back up my files or anything. and he doesn't even have anything on this PC.
I've seen similar problems but it seems that there's always at least one admin profile to recover the rest of them with.
Any clues? The Geek Squad wants $360 with no guarantees (naturally).

Hears what happened...I wanted to add more language files to my computer. So i reinstalled XP but booting up from start, the usuals, but I didnt choose to delete my partition drive and whatnot couase I know it would just reformat. All was fine until I realized it deleted and replaced my user account profile with a new one. IS there a way to rollback the installtion or restore my profile stuff?

You have to take ownership and alter the permissions of your profile directory. Explorer does not and cannot get the file size of files it does not have permission to read.

Did you check the Nuance forums to begin with, regarding this issue.  I would start there, and also check with Nuance, regarding this issue, by putting in a support ticket with them.  Also make sure that all of your drivers are up to date.  What is the Manufacturer & model# of the computer & headset?
 
Also have you tried a repair install of Dragon, along with checking the headset on a different computer, that does not have Dragon installed on it?  Are there any Yellow Exclamation marks in Device manager?

A:User Profiles

You can delete profiles and accounts at will. The choice is up to you.
Doesn't sound like you need two of either in your case anyway.
Nasties also hide in system restore. Normally after malware detection, as part of the cleanup process, you should remove all the restore points. Depending on the infection, you don't have to do an actual system restore to be re-infected again.

Hi and Welcome to TSF -

I will be glad to take a look at this problem from the XP OS side, but a few questions first, please:

1. When do the error messages appear - after logon but before the desktop is in view?
2. Do these error occur for all user accounts?
3. Are you running XP SP2 with all Windows Updates applied?
4. Have you checked the Event Viewer for futher information on the erroe events?

One recommendation that I would make is to moniter the CPU/RAM usage as various tasks are running. I have used CPUMon for this. It will stay "on top" thus giving you a view of CPU/RAM after logon.

CPUMon v1.60 by Denis Kozlov

In addition, some system specs would help.

Hello Chaos ninja, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, you will not have any problems copying over your files to the new account, then deleting your old user administrator account while logged in your new "administrator" account.

That would be the only way to change the actual C:\Users\(user-name) folder name.

Hope this helps,

Hope I can do a decient job of describing my question here...
With XP, you can have multiple user profiles where each user has their own area for files and it seems like certain system configuration settings. Can these user profiles be configured so that certain resident programs load only when that user is logged in and when they log off these programs are exited. For example, my son uses my 'puter to download with Kaaza and some other apps. When I am logged on, I don't want these apps to load. Can this be done? if so, how?
Thanks
 

A:user profiles in XP?

When you are logged in,you will need to go into Kazaa program ( or whatever other program you dont want on startup ) and find option to " not startup with Windows "

This will occur on your user profile and should not affect other users.....but all depends on the particular program of course.

GOOD LUCK!!!

See the rebuttal by Keri on page 4 of the responses, near the bottom:






Quote:
I have to most respectfully disagree!

As far as I can recall, this is the first time I have to disagree with you . Not because I have written a few tutorials on those "third party websites" as you put it to instruct in doing this but because what you are saying is simply not valid and true.

Let's start with this extract from your article:

"Important

This setting should be used only in a test environment. By changing the default location of the user profile directories or program data folders to a volume other than the System volume, you will not be able to service your Windows installation. Any updates, fixes, or service packs will fail to be applied to the installation. Microsoft does not recommend that you change the location of the user profile directories or program data folders. [emphasis added]"

That is, to put it simple, absolutely totally not true. Since introduction of Windows Vista all my Windows systems private and business have had the main Users folder relocated on another partition than C: using sysprep and unattended answer file. I have never had any issues with Windows update nor with in-place upgrade installations.

As the method discussed changes the value of an internal windows environment variable, it is so well "hard coded" in system that Windows Update will recognize it and has no issues.

When upgrading I simply run sysprep on Windows first, using an answer file I relocate the Users folder back from E: to C:, reboot, run in-place upgrade and sysprep once again, moving Users back to E:.

Not a single issue. This laptop I'm using now was upgraded in above mentioned way from 7 to 8 august of 2012 and again August this year to 8.1, system files and folders except Users folder on C:, Users on E:, and the machine is working just fine, all updates done, Windows Update working as it should.

As Windows has evolved, so have its tools like sysprep. You did notice that the TechNet article you are referring to is already several years old (for instance it's using Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate as an upgrade example)?.

I can understand that there must be days with nothing new to write. However, scandalizing totally working methods and spreading false information is not a good way to get something published, if you ask my opinion.

The size may or may not affect your performance. More likely it's either an infection (if something has gotten by your protection package) or a lack of resources.

The lack of resources is usually caused by too many programs running at startup, too many unnecessary services running, and/or too many programs running - but this may be complicated by insufficient RAM and older system components.

So, please let us know the specifications of your system and we can work from there.

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

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

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

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

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

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