Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem

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.)

A: Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem

Hi Jon, welcome to the Eight Forums.

The user profile with SID (security identifier) ending with 1001 is usually (not always) the first user account created when Windows is installed or a pre-installed Windows booted first time. In most cases this means it's your own user account.

You can check for which user account that SID belongs by giving the following command in Command Prompt:

wmic useraccount get name,sid

This example from my laptop, the first account I created when I installed Windows 8.1 was a local account called Admin which got the SID 1001:

SID ending with 500 belongs always to the built-in administrator account, SID ending with 501 to built-in Guest account, whether these two accounts are enabled and active or not. Other user accounts start from 1000.

What the above means is that you have most probably tried to remove your own account. Don't do that !

I right clicked on a file and saw a permission for Account Unknown.

It is inheriting permissions.
How do I remove it?
Not just from that file, from all of my computer.

As an extra question, how can I make my router firewall more effective? I can get on the router page on the web, but what kind of options can I choose?
(I already have Comodo on my computer).

One more question, some files on my computer has allowed "Users" full access. How can I see all of those files, and give users "read" access or non-access. (I am the only user on the computer and I am the administrator. Just worried a bit about security).


A:Account Unknown Permission Removal

Click Orb, Right click on Computer and click Manage. Expand "Local Users & Groups" then click on Groups. On the right hand pane, go into Administrators or Users. You will see the Security Identifier (SID) from your picture above. Just remove the account. It is either an account that existed on the computer previously, or an account which belongs to a network (a corporate environment). If the computer is not connected to the corporate network then it won't be able to translate the SID to the Display Name.

When I booted up my Acer netbook yesterday, I saw two user icons shown on the Windows login screen instead of one. Aside from my own, the other user name was 'spcnywicl' - not a good sign.

I logged into my own account and removed the user in the 'User Accounts' section of Control Panel. Unfortunately it keeps coming back.

I ran regedit and did a search for the above username. It cropped up in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows Search/CrawlScopeManager/Windows/SystemIndex/DefaultRules/7/

The bottom entry was

Name Type Data
URL REG_SZ file:///C:\Users\spcnywicl\Appdata\*

Any thoughts on what to do next?

I currently have Eset Smart Security 6, by the way.

I'm not griping this time!

I've set up a limited account on my computer, and when I was testing it out, I noticed that I was able to manipulate the settings to the anti-virus program that's installed. How do I, using my administrator account, prevent the limited account from messing with it? I've hidden as many folders as possible, but the task bar icon is still visible and I can't hide it. And I can't right-click the task bar icon and mess with the security settings that way.

A:User account permission settings


The problem is more with your Internet Security software than with Vista. If you make the files for the Internet Security software inaccessible to a limited user - that software might not work properly for that user. Most Internet Security software (i.e. Norton, McAfee) allows you to install parental controls and give you the ability to control WHAT Windows users can or cannot do (including the manipulation of the software's settings).

What Internet Security Software are you using? Have you installed parental controls? Did you install the software while logged in as "Administrator"?

Let me know and I can probably offer more assistance.

I have Windows7 RC on my system, earlier i had windows xp SP2. Recently i noticed an unknown user account (S-1-5-21-XXXXX......) in the security tab of few of the folders/files. But this user does not show up in the local user group in the control panel. Any idea what this account is and how to remove it?

A:Unknown user account

Hi, @Cooladi Actually, this issue is caused by File system ACLs(Access Control List) on the harddisk, but since the account is deleted it can't be resolved to a username. You can try to use Microsoft Utility Tool (SubInACL ) to remove them. @Joesync Maybe a software/service sets a specific user account on these pic files, after changing OS or remove this user account on the computer, they also cannot be resolved. Hope it helps.

Primary computer (IBM) is not hooked up right now and is the one that is directly connected to internet. This one (DELL) is connected via hub as is laptop when used. I am also connected to a domain for work via VPN(though that will be stopping soon)and maybe that has something to do with it?I need to do a major clean out (for space) on DELL and then a backup and came across this while doing something else. All all virus defs are up to date and scans run often & regularly so all clear there (Norton SEP).thanks for thoughts, advice.

You don't need to delete it, but you can do, this is linked to Microsoft's update ".NET Framework 1.1" - which is contains an application/code that some applications you run on your computer may need to use.

Hello everyone!

I ran into an interesting issue this morning. I created a new document, saving as, from a USB onto my hard drive. The Word document icon changed to a double person, unlike any others I have on my hard drive or the USB. I checked the securities tab on that specific Word doc and it is showing Account Unknown S-1-5-5-0-185474. This is new. I can't find any other files that show this unknown user. My questions are, 1) is this dangerous, 2) where did it come from, and 3) can and how do I get rid of it.

I have made no significant changes to my computer since this occurred.

This has happened to me recently also. Everytime I download a file to my desktop I adds another security account to the file, Account Unknown S-1-5-5-0-******. The stars change depending on the day I download the file. My old files do not have this, only the ones I download presently.

Hello glnz,

You will see "Account Unknown" for an account that is not currently available. This could be from an account you deleted that had permissions, or from an account on another computer that is not connected.

Either way, it's safe to remove any listed "Account Unknown" entries in permissions if you are sure it's for an account that will no longer need permissions for the item.

A:Unknown user account blocking access to files

Very easy fix this.
Firstly please note that taking ownership DOES not set permissions. It does exaclt as it says, it sets you as the owner. Being the owner now ALLOWS you to set permisions. After this you now set permissions as you have tried.
Go to the root of my docs. Right click the my docs folder, properties, security tab. Now click the advanced button. In here set the permissions you want and now tick the box that says "reset permissions on all subfolders" or soemthing like that. It will then go through and apply those permissions to everything so you only need to do it once.

Bonus answer for you here. The s-1-5-21 account was your old user account from your previous Vista build. This is called a SID and it is used to uniquly identify a user object. This actually is what it really is. It is the windows interface that matches this up to the username and displays it as that for you. since this SID no longer exists on your new system it can't match it to the name so it displays the SID instead!

EDIT: I forgot to add when you take ownership first you also need to take the same box "reset permission on subfolders etc..." THEN do the same on the security. if you only take ownership on my docs you will not have ownership of subfolder and wont be able to reset permissions on them

Hello I am trying to change the permission settings on my user account folder When I clicked properties and then the security tab I discovered that there is an unknown user that has full control over the folder I being paranoid and picky about my computer tried to delete this user from the list in the security tab and after the changes were applied throughout the folder I noticed some desktop shortcuts were deleted and I don't really know what else I could have messed up I tried a system restore but that didn't even touch my user folder The Account name was quot Account unknown lt some long random string gt quot There may be nothing wrong and the paths that the shortcuts followed may have been altered when I made a change to the security settings deleting the shortcuts But I still would like to know where this unknown user came from and what control it potentially had This is a private computer on a private network and contains one and only one user account I'd appreciate any user error bringing on Unknown deletion messages. account clues as to where this mysterious account came from Thanks Brad Edit Hey I mentioned an error message in the title This came up after applying deletion changes throughout the directory It just said that I should undo any changes that I may have made on accident

Am running Windows XP SP2

One of the user accounts is acting up. It won't let us change the background or any personal settings. The whole account is acting messed up. The taskbar looks like it's from windows 95 or something and the start menu is all grey and missing sections. Also, the internet (Internet explorer 7) refuses to accept new settings and always starts up to the onetime page.

Can't delete account and make new one as the problem just moves on to the user account made before the one you are deleting!!

Any help would be appreciated =)

A:Windows XP User Account Problem

Did you follow the steps in this MS article?
How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile
Note: You must sign in at least once to the New Account before you can copy the old profile, as the account folder is not created until it is signed into.
After copying the files, click on the New_Username folder, then click on the folder named Old_Username's Documents. Double click the Desktop.ini file, and change the line Owner=Old_Username to Owner=New_Username
Note that you will have to redo any customizations, i.e. wallpaper, colors, Folder Options, Cursors, etc.
Desktop.ini is a hidden file but if you followed the steps in the MS article your system should be set to display it.

Make sure you DO NOT copy the 3 ntuser files -- those are the ones with the corrupt settings.

Two things you can try doing:


(pulled this from here)

1. Restart your computer and hit F8 multiples times until you see a menu-like screen, if you see the Windows splash screen then repeat this step
2. Highlight and hit enter on Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Try logging in there. If it still doesn't work, then go to step17
3. If you are able to login, once a command prompt pops up, type: net user administrator password /active:yes (you can specify whatever password you want for the administrator account.)
4. If you get a message saying "The command completed successfully", then restart your computer by typing: shutdown -r
5. Boot up again pressing F8, but this time choose just Safe Mode.
6. You will be able to login as Administrator with the password you set in Step 3
7. Hit (windows logo)+R
8. Type regedit
9. Once the registry editor opens up, look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
10. In the left pane, find the one that starts with S-1-5..... and ends with .BAK; if you don't find one, skip to step 15
11. Right click it and click Rename, then change the .BAK to .BK
12. Right click the one with the same numbering but without the .BAK and add .BAK add the end
13. Right click the one that you renamed to .BK and clickRename, delete the .BK
14. Eventually, you have switched the .BAK from the end of the second entry to the first. That should probably fix your problem.
15. If you didn't find a .BAK then try this: Open Windows Explorer to C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Application Data
16. If you find another Application Data below the one you're on, then delete it. That should probably also fix your problem.
17. If you can't login in Safe Mode, then reboot and hit F8 until you see the menu again, then hit enter highlightingRepair Your Computer
18. Wait until all Windows Files finish loading, then hitNext when it asks keyboard language.
19. Try logging in here also, choose your user from the dropdown menu, and type the password, then jump to step 23
20. If that still doesn't work, then if you have your Windows Installation CD still, put it in and restart your computer.
21. Hit F12 until you see a menu of boot options, choose Boot from CD
22. Choose keyboard language then hit next. Find Repair Your Computer from a little below the center left.
23. Choose Open Command Prompt and type: net user administrator password /active:yes (here again you can specify a password)
24. Close the command prompt and click Restart and jump to step 5
To disable the administrator account, type this in an elevated command prompt: net user administrator /active:no

However, when I open Windows Explorer, my user account shows my SURNAME, which I would like to change to my first name. I have no idea why it should show my surname (unless this was in the original set up) - all the other user accounts are correct.

I do not want to create a new account and delete the present one as I would lose all my folders under my present user account.

Well, i've bought a new computer, and i'm setting up for some personal use, also made a new account for my kid, who would be using it for video game use only......

I setup the account and set it to GUEST type of account, and tested out (its not suppose to let guests to install apps right?) to see if the guest account can install programs and such.... and turns out it still can!!!!!!!!!!!

so my question is... how do i lock out the guest account from installing any programs and junks?

thanks in advance !

A:Win7 permission problem, with guest account

Don't worry about applications being installed. Unless you changed it the guest account can only affect itself. So you can easily revert every change and application install by deleting the guest's user directory. Viruses and other malware will be useless and only drive the guest account nuts, but easily fixed.

You can't modify an existing account that way. When using "FAST", you need to create the account you need first, then the files/settings will be transferred to that.
Start over, don't creat any dummy accounts, create the accounts required (I assume they have different names?). RUn the "FAST" in the newly created accounts.

My grandmother was recently hacked and she changed all her passwords herself (yay!). However she did not write down her new local user account password for her laptop.

I tried downloading OPHCrack, I burned it as an ISO file and put it on a DVD-R(only thing I had on hand) and i changed the boot order on her BIOS menu to had the DVD drive as the first priority. It does not run....I hear the disk drive moving, or spinning but the program does not run. Are there any other options or do I have to do a complete system restore to bypass this? Also if that is what I have to do how do I do that without being in her control panel?

A:The User Profile (Administrator Account) Service failed to logon and then left with only Guest Account in Windows 7


Occasionally, Windows might not read your user profile correctly, such as if your antivirus software is scanning your computer while you try to log on.
Please try restarting your computer and logging on with your user account again.

If the issue still persists, please restart in safe mode to log on with the built-in administrator account:
1. Restart your computer and hit F8 multiples times until you see a menu-like screen, if you see the Windows splash screen then repeat this step
2. Highlight and hit enter on Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Try logging in there.
3. If you are able to login, once a command prompt pops up, type: net user administrator password /active:yes (you can specify whatever password you want for the administrator
4. If you get a message saying "The command completed successfully", then restart your computer by typing: shutdown -r
5. Boot up again pressing F8, but this time choose just Safe Mode.
6. You will be able to login as Administrator with the password you set in Step 3.

Then try the following methods:
Method 1: Fix these user account profile on these computer

Method 2: Log on to Windows and copy your data to a new account
Method 3: Delete the error SID and create a new profile

I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old.
How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall


A:Move/copy-paste User Account data & docs to New User account same sys

Don't even try would be my recommendation.

Make a new Admin account and copy your documents. Set everything else up from scratch.

Most applications will store their stuff in %localappdata% but unless you have some specific app (Windows Live Mail or Outlook or something) tht you must move it would be much better not to try to move things.

If there is something specifically you want to move then ask about that - I've moved the 2 I mention above, for sure someone else has moved something else.

Generally it will be quicker (and cleaner) to start from scratch than trawl though everything hoping to make sure you moved the lot. You'll only end up missing some odd directory and it will not work.

Hello Since I bought this computer I've had issues I started by creating a user with my personal email address but then thought I wanted it for work so I deleted the Microsoft account associated Windows Account/Microsoft Issues...

I have a Vista 32 system that has some corruption. Several things like the NET v2.0 framework do not work correctly and it does not do a Windows update without an error. Basically, I know some corruption must exist in the registry.

I have a new drive that I restored a backup from way back when the system was working OK. Naturally there are programs and files that need to be updated. I will have to reinstall the programs that did not exist on the old backup, but I was hoping I could restore my user account profile "in bulk" without just moving individual files. Is there anything wrong with deleting the whole content of the restored user account profile and replacing it with my present profile?

A:replacing a restored user account from backup with present user account

You could use Windows Easy Transfer, I will be back with more information.

You can also, just back up your files etc and then restore them to the new account.

You have to be careful with anything that you do, to be sure that the corruption is not transferred.

We are creating a PDF file in login user's local application folder (C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\folder1) through a custom .Net application and displaying the created pdf file in application.

The above functionality is working for users who are part of domain and added to local vista machine as users (both for administrator and standard user accounts).
The same is not working for local users (both administrator and standard user accounts created in vista box).

File is getting created for any user under their local appdata folder and can able to open from that location, but not displaying from app in case of local system users (admin or standard type).

Can anyone help me what security settings differ between domain users vs local users in vista business 32 bit OS?


A:domain account user vs local account user in vista

Policy that is actually causing the problem (or lack thereof) is corresponds to Internet Options control panel, Connections tab, Lan Settings button: Use Automatic Configuration settings.
Having this turned on causes IE to load a configuration file prepared by IT department which makes a whole lot of configuration changes to IE, including remapping the security zones. We can test this by unchecking this option (the default state).
Since the machine is in domain and since we are testing with domain users accounts, I have monitored domain controller pushing down a bunch of policy settings which relax the IE security settings, causing the reports to display.
First, domain settings will resync over time and this checkbox will keep getting turned back on automatically. So you can?t really turn this off, it won?t stay off. I would feel better just testing local accounts, but since the computer is also a member of the domain, machine-specific policies are applied by the domain as well.

I have a Dell XPS 9100 with Windows 7 Prof. I am using the user account made during the initial bootup of the new computer, to make the desired settings and adding software installations. However after I finish with the initial tweaking, I will reduce the account privileges from Administrator to Standard user level. However, before I change the account level, I will make another user account with administrator user level.

Is there a way to have the new user account have the same settings as the initial user account when it is Simimade, such as copying, etc? I am not looking forward to manually making all of the sames changes/settings that I have made in the initial bootup user account, to the new user account with administrator privileges.

I would very much appreciate any suggestions regarding the above. Thanks Sam

A:Creating a New User Account Similar to an Existing User Account

Hello Scams,

About as close as you can get to this would be to create a new administrator account with the name you like, then copy all of the contents of the old user account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new user account.

It will copy most of your settings, like your Start Menu shortcuts, to the new account, but items stored in the registry, like your desktop background, would have to be reset again.

Hope this helps some,

Hello, you will need to access the properties of the folder holding the photos with the bad permissions, then add either your explicit account or the administrators group to the access control list, set the permissions to Full Access; alternatively you can also take ownership of that folder if that is the case:

Login under a different Admin account, move any personal files for that profile into a folder on the C Drive, then delete the profile and have the user log back in.

I logged back onto "Daniel" and under the Users folder right clicked "Daniel", clicked Properties, clicked Security, and clicked Advanced. I denied access to this folder to "bennett", but after logging back on to "bennett" and clicking the ""Daniel" folder under Users, it told me I did not have access to that folder, but to gain access just click continue. I did so and was able to access the account. I logged back on to "Daniel" and further denied access to Administrator(bennett-pc) or something with a similar title. After doing this I was not able to gain access to any of my files even when logged onto Daniel.

However, I right clicked and restored access to this folder to "Daniel" (it told me it did not have an owner and that I could claim ownership of it) but that did not immediately give me access to the file folders contained within it. I have to right click and do the same to gain access to them. I don't mind having to go through and take ownership of all these folders manually, but the problem I'm having is I still cannot open the files within these folders. If I try to restore access to them (or take ownership), it adds a small lock symbol to their icons and when I try to open them it tells me access its denied.

This is turning out to be a big problem for me so any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Your problem is that an administrator cant deny another administrator access. If you want daniel secure the only way is to remove bennet from Admin or securing the folder with a 3rd party password app.

I recently purchased a Dell Vostro s with Windows Pro installed I migrated all my settings and data from my existing PC running XP Pro via my LAN Whilst doing this I was instructed to set up an additional Administrator account which I named 'Administrator ' - it wouldn't allow 'Administrator' which I have now found out is because there is a 'hidden' account with that Account with Problem User name When I tried to install Quickbooks I entered the activation key having logged in via my own account set up as an Administrator but received an error This problem was solved by logging in using the Administrator account and then no problem occured I have now discovered that MobileMe will not synchronise using my user account but does using Admin In addition Acrobat Problem with User Account crashes on opening via my user account but not using Admin It would appear that there is some fault with my user account but I don't know where to start Are there settings which I can alter to correct the fault Alternatively can I migrate my own data etc onto the Admin account and then just use Problem with User Account that Should I copy all my data delete my own account and then set up a new account Many thanks in anticipation Jason

A:problem with User account

Important things first. Changes like this do not happen. It can be a major problem
Run a full anti virus scan
Download and run malwarebytes. Full scan and update it first

If these are negative, try a system restore.

But be sure, we do not want a virus to sperad to restore points..

I'm experiencing a couple issues XP User Problem? Account in XP Media Center that I believe are related and somehow connected to Windows user accounts I had XP User Account Problem? one main user account set up for years password protected and at times XP User Account Problem? I had a guest limited account for my kids More recently I changed the password on my account I now have one more recently installed application I don't think it matters too much but fwiw it's Ring Central Call Controller I use for my work that will not launch unless I right-click and select open as and have the drop down box on administrator and enter my password The curious thing is that it doesn't accept my new password only my old password And I am the main user on this computer and have full admin rights so I don't get why I am having to start an app this way anyways- my other apps seem to be fine If I just double click on the RCCC app exe to try to launch it normally I get no error message or nothing just nothing happens failure to launch Now the other problem that I think is related to this all is that when and only when I have had this Call Controller app open even if I exit it before shutting down windows I invariably get popups when I shut down windows First an end program task mgr box pops up for explorer exe process and then after that an end program box pops up for power meter which is strange as my PC is a desktop not a notebook and these end task boxes will not automatically shut down those processes if I let their progress meters complete- either one will freeze the shutdown process If I just click shutdown and walk away the next morning my computer's still on But if I click the end now button on both of these warnings shutdown will complete Is there a proper safe way to delete all user accounts and reset it all to start again from scratch Or might it be that I need something a little more drastic to purge the registry Any other suggestions

A:User Account Problem in Win. XP

when you get alot of spyware, and then remove it....alot of your xp system files will be corrupt.......alot of incompatibilities, lost files, errors.

I reccomend just a clean reformat if you want to fix it all.

do a search for boot.ini and download the original file and place it there.

Hi there,

I am hoping someone here can help.

I have a desktop running windows 7 and I have set up 3 user accounts - mine the main one as administrator, my son & guest.

When I try to launch the main one, I get the cmd box up and cannot exit it - when I put in the command exit it just goes to a black screen and stays there.

Yet I can go on as a guest and all seems to work fine, but obviuosly I need to access my user account because its got all sorts of stuff on there I cannot access as a guest.

By the way up until a few days ago my main user account worked just fine - I have also tried a system restore but that has not made any difference

Can anyone offer any help please?

A:User account problem


Right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Locate
the entries for your hard disks and double click each entry. On the
Policies tab, uncheck Enable write caching.

You will see a performance decrease because of this, but if the
corrupt registry/user profiles problems cease, then you'll be certain
of the cause.

Logon to another account with admin privilege and run System Restore.
Choose the most recent restore point and SR should restore the user


Boot into safe mode and log in as Administrator. Copy ntuser.dat from
%windir%\repair to "Documents and Settings\[your user id]". Now do a
system restore to a point in time prior to when the corruption message
began to appear.


Relocate NTUserdat

NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and find the profile you want to change

then change ProfileImagePath to the ntuser.dat folder that you want to
You must manually copy or move the ntuser.dat file there.

Operating system: windows xp sp2

When any user account logs off most of the time the following window appears:

program "hv4tK3y7d9DD89Cr1Je1w24+defaultCFG+DesktopSearchEngine" not responding,click "end now" or "cancel" . Clicking either of these options allows the logoff to complete.

You can logon and then logoff without doing anything and there is no problem, but using IE or AOL etc the problem is generated, but you don't know it until you attempt to logoff.

I have run various virus and adware/spyware programs and nothing is found, so it looks like the system is clean right now.

Thanks for any suggestions.

thanks for answering anyone. but here is the problem. when i set up my windows install it created me an admin account. i went to create another account for my brother and it said i needed to create another admin account. so i did and it deleted my other account and all my unshared files!!! please help. also the system restore is not working. it keeps telling me that it can't back it up. please help.....

A:HUGE user account problem

No it didn't really delete the other account. I suspect you used the Administrator account to start with which should not be used exactly for this reason as once a second Admin account is created, the Administrator Account can only be accessed from Safe Mode. My advice is create another Admin user in your name now.

I have a Windows7 home premium Toshiba laptop (SP 1) that I recently acquired from a used laptop shop. I requested that an administrator user account with a password and a Guest User account be set up so that our kids can use the guest account without downloading anything from the internet.
The problem is that our Administrator account has an internet connection and access, but not so on the Guest. The laptop shop guy is not familiar with how the guest account works (????) so I am on my own, unless someone here can help.
I can connect with our home internet system using the Administrator account then switch user to the guest account and attempt to browse (firefox), but it says my machine is not connected to a server, even though less than a minute earlier on the Administrator account, I was connected.

Can someone give me any direction on this to resolve?

Log into your administrator account and go to Control Panel/User Accounts create a new Standard users account, set the Parental Controls for this account. Test the account by logging out and logging into the new account.

Have you tried a System Restore back to a point before this problem first appeared.
When you go to START have you double clicked on the Account picture and tried to change the Accont picture?
You could also try running SFC:
