My problem is that I can't log in to Windows unless I disable my VGA card in safe-mode.
I have NVidia 820m (laptop). It was fine until my recent update of the driver. Now I uninstalled the driver then installed it again. But the problem is still there.
Would appreciate the help
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.)
Good evening from Graz,
i have quite a strange problem on my personal pc since the last few days. I cannot login to my useraccount(which has a transparent picture at the logon screen since a few days).
I have just one workarround: if i login with my adminaccount and logoff, the userpicture of my privateaccount appears again and the login is possible.
What could this problem be related to?
solved it. Disabled the admin account, and removed the pw of my useraccount.
Kind a strange problem indeed, but seems to be solved.
I currently have 5 user accounts on my windows vista 32-bit computer and I needed to create a new account. So, I logged onto the administrator account and created a new user account. Then, I logged off the administrator account and tried to log onto the new account. However, I received the following message
The user profile service failed the log on.
User profile can not be loaded.
After receiving the message I restarted the computer and attempted to log onto the new account but I received the same message.
Please help me.
Thank you in advance.

If it gives you a access denied message while trying to activate windows; you may very well need to change the permissions for your user name in order for you to have access to it as windows 7 has quirks about having access to certain items even if your user name is a administrator. As for the non genuine windows thing; I strongly advise you in the future to never go to a non genuine site for any free browser. Always type the url directly into the address bar of the browser you use as that way you will encounter less issues. To get rid of the non genuine opera copy. I would download and install revo uninstaller from the link below and that should help to get rid of any registry entries in windows as well as the program folder:
download, install, and run the uninstaller from the above link then do a google search for opera browser. Thats your best bet at this point.
Hi I have IIS running on my Windows XP machine Problem new Windows XP IIS User with Until now I have had no problems A couple of days ago I added a new user account Now when I try to go to http localhost on the new user I get an error saying the page cannot be displayed By the way I know for sure that this has nothing to do with the actual coding of the page because I have tried it on many pages HTML PHP ASP I can still run it from my original user account though just not from the IIS Problem with Windows XP new User new one Also thought I would mention that I also can t run WS FTP Pro on my new account Again I can run it on the orignial account but not this one This account is not a limited account Both accounts are the same type the power-user something like that just not limited I think it has to do something with profiles for the users or other but I am not sure and this is really bothering me Any help is appreciated Thanks nbsp
Check whether the new account has access to the directory where you keep your html files. Maybe there's a permissions problem.

It sounds like you have Malware on the system. Especially the "Hi %1 bit"
I would boot from a USB stick with virus scanners on it and run scans.
Edit: here is one resource for portable scanners. If you google there should be many reviews and links to additional free rescue USB tools:

After entering password, the following message pops up;
'The User Profile Service service failed the log on. User profile cannot be loaded'.
Selecting OK causes the computer to shut down only to restart almost immediately back at the password and the process repeats over again.

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 =)
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.

You need to do a virus scan. I have been fighting a trojan downloader that installs this and lots of other fun spyware on the computer. Norton does not see this as a virus, but every other AV program I have run does.
You may want to run an online virus scan. www.antivirus.com is the one I use. Make sure to click auto clean.
After removing the virus, I have had to run spyware removal tools to get the rest of the garbage off the machines that had this. I used spybot, ad-aware and microsoft AS to do this. Took all 3 to get it all.
I submitted this to Symantec and they called it spyware and would not update their defs to catch this. Avast did a great job of cleaning it up.
Hope you can help, a user in the office get a couple of RUN DLL errors come up when he logs into his PC.

Hello! I have one strange problem, I am using my computer with my brother, and we are having 2 accounts on this comp, usally, we keep our profile loggen in, and often when computer is on, we both are logged in each of our user account, but problem is, that if one of us is logging of, or switching users (if both of as are in online mode) windows is logging off the one account, but after log out, it shows blank screen, computer is still running, but it just becomes freezed.. this ain't happening only if I log of my account and my bro loggs into his account and when I need to log in, he logs out and then I go to my account. I hope you understood my problem.
Originally, when I transferred to another user, I was presented with the user names and could choose one without logging off completely from the current user, i.e. when I returned, open files would remain open.. Something unknown happened and now it is necessary to log off completely from the present user (and close all files) before selecting another user. How do I get back to the original procedure?
Maybe the feature got disable, to enable it see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/279765
I have some strange problem where every time I switch on my computer it will log into another user account and if I switch users it will automatically log in to the same account, and it is very frustrating, I had the normal auto log in problem before and a user messaged me on how to fix it which worked (Changing registry and inheritance but after awhile another problem has appeared. I thought it was just the same problem but the registry hasn't changed. I did find that if I disable the account it will eliminate this but I do not want to do that seeing as how one day it might randomly appear again on another username.http://www.eightforums.com/user-accounts-family-safety/14759-windows-8-auto-user-log-problem.html

It did not change the account, the normal user account is corrupted, so W7 loads a temporary account with low priveledges.
Hi! I did an new install of windows 7 (home first then upgraded to pro)
I want to hide a user by doing this on the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Winlogon \SpecialAccounts\ UserList ..then add dword32 by my username value to 0
I did this on my old laptop and it worked perfectly.
Now I've done the same thing on my new laptop. It works but stangely, the folder still appears in c\users.
The user is not visible in the panel control\users or at the start of the PC
I'm sure i've done the right thing, what is causing this? Could it be a bad install of windows? Please let me know if you have a idea!
Thank you very much for your help!
If you log into that user it is going to have a user directory, regardless if you have the user hidden or not.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/339572-hide-user-registry-stange-problem-user-still-appears-c-folder.html
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium
In Control Panel/User Accounts, I use my FIRST NAME on an Administrator account and log in with this name.
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.
Can you help, please?
Hope this tutorial helps

Hello i run into a problem while trying to run multiple problem Windows xp fast user switching programs on different user account on my computer When i log off all programs will close but i need them to remain running when i go to change the ways users log on log off and click use fast user switching option then click apply it does not save that setting I then went to Computer admin account and tryed the same method when i clicked on enable fast user switching option a message came up saying Fast user switching is enabled on this computer Offline files cannot be enables while fast user switching is enabled I Windows xp fast user switching problem also went to Windows xp fast user switching problem services and changes the fast user switching compatibility to automatic So thats my problem it tells me how to fix it but it says its already enabled but its not will not let me run progams and switch user accounts I Dont think ill have issues with memory or processing power
Don't you have the option to just switch users as this would not log a user off(which would close everything) and instead it leaves them logged on and lets you select another user. I've had several programs/internet windows up and never had any problems with them closing just from switching users. Any further details you could provide would be wonderful, like do you have the option to switch users when you hit start -> shutdown?

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

Then Click on Properties/
Go to the tab Computer Name/
And For a final step click on Change to change your computer name

have you tried turning UAC off in user accounts,just to see any difference
On a w2k-sp4 pc, my booting process starts looping with "Loading your personal parameters" when it reaches "Recording your parameters". That's the point where you hear the jingle which goes on indefinitely.
Since it's inside the opening of the User Session, probably that my profile is somewhat corrupt.
Safe Mode leads to the same loop.
FYI, I can access w2k files through an XP I have on that pc operating in dual boot mode.
are you using a login/password?
i've never seen "recording your parameters" in w2k/sp4 as it boots.
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?
Hello there "hater",are you sure you downloaded the right OPHcrack version?It should be the one that is intended to be used on,not the one being used to download and be burned on.Try imgburn,never failed me to create bootable CDs or DVDs.http://www.eightforums.com/user-accounts-family-safety/40661-old-problem-new-user-forgot-local-user-account-password.html

A few days ago, Windows Update Automatic updates installed an update on my computer called:
Windows Search 4.0 for Windows Vista (KB940157)
When I restarted my computer after this update I tried to log on and got this message:
The user profile service has failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
I fixed this by booting into the F8 restore options on my Dell Laptop and used system restore to repair the problem
Today Windows Update Installed that same update again and the same problem arose which I again fixed with system restore.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this, like why should this update be causing my User Profile not to load ?
Dell Inspiron Notebook
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
Hi, RockLobster, and welcome to the forums.
Hide the update in Windows Update so it won't try to install it.
Manually set a restore point - see System Restore Point - create
Manually download the Windows Search 4.0 update from Microsoft.
See if that causes the same problem - if so, revert to your newest System Restore.
I note that there have been several other posts on this subject but I cannot see one that solves my problem I was transferring files from one external drive to another I found a problem with problem Windows User Unknown 8.1 Permission Account a set of folders that I could not transfer with permission which should have been fine as I Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem have administrator rights Looking at the folder permissions I found an unknown user account Looking for solutions I tried to delete this account but was not allowed unless I turned off inherited permissions I tried turning off the inheritance but this resulted in an error saying it failed to enumerate the number of objects in the container access denied Looking at some individual files in one of the offending folders properties showed 'Unable to display current owner' selecting the 'Change' option allowed me Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem to change the file ownership to Everyone - Full Control and I could then move or delete the file There are quite a lot of files to do Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem so is there a way to change all the affected folder amp file permissions in one move Rgds Jon
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 had to reinstall W7 Pro X64 on my home PC to cure problems with sleep/hibernation.
After reinstalling, I found a single user account had been created named "DELL".
All my previous software (now stored in Windows.Old) referred to user name "Brian". So I changed the name of the DELL account to "Brian". But I then found that although the user folders are sometimes shown as "Brian", at others they are shown as "DELL".
How do I make the change of account name effective for all the relevant user folders? There is no facility to rename C:\Users\DELL; is there some other way?

Welcome Hershmab to the windows 7 forums.
The best advice I can give you is to create a userid for Brian making sure that it has the same security level as you used to have. Then log off dell and log on to brian and copy all the files to your new userid and then you can remove the Dell userid after your satisfied that everything is there.
it's weird but I can't change the password of a domain user when I'm logged on a domain pc with Windows 8.
I'm sure that the password mets the requirements (I also tested here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security/pc-security/password-checker.aspx ), in fact if I change it from a domain controller I can do it without any problem.
But if I try to set the same on Win 8 I can't, the system tell me that the password doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
I also examined the event viewer but seems that the system didn't record any event related to.
Some suggestion about to solve it?
i can't finish the setup process. i'm trying to create a "standard" account, but when i go to create a password for it, no matter how many characters and no matter how complex (uppercase, lowercase, numbers, etc) it will absolutely not accept anything as a password (and i am copying/pasting the password from notepad, so it is being typed correctly).
i checked all the secpol 'password policies', and there don't seem to be any interfering requirements.
i attached a screenshot, if it helps.

The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

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.
I have hide all of my administrator account from login screen on windows7 by editing registry entry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Winlogon\SpecialAccounts". Now I have only one power user account. I can't
login with admnistrative account because there is no switch user button on login screen. Even if I click on switch user button from start menu this will load the login screen with the power user and I don't have any option to change the username.
How can I get rid from this?
I see two choices:
-by safe mode (pressing F8 before windows load), you should be able to modify your regkey
-by right click maintening "shift" key on regedit then "run as different user" you should be able to enter your other credentials

This concerns my mother's 2-year-old Toshiba laptop. My mother says that sometimes she is suddeny thrown out of her computer - when she is on the internet, or reading her e-mails etc.- whatever she is doing is interrupted without warning by a Windows Update screen telling her to wait and that Windows Update is updating her computer. Then the computer shuts down/reboots. And my mother has to start anew with whatever she was doing. Is this a Windows Update setting thing? My mother says that she has had this problem from the very start (she thinks so at least).
Update: okay, I checked my mother's laptop myself. It seems that there is a Windows Update feature my own laptop doesn't have: after downloading the updates, a nagging Windows Update box with a sort of timer/countdown function appears, asking whether the computer should be restarted, or the installation of the updates postponed. If neither of these options are chosen, then it will reboot automatically in 5 minutes. So...how do I get rid of that pesky box?
Help Please I've been searching this forum and on line all day I cannot find anything close to my problem or any instructions to help me fix it I have two user accounts on my computer Both have Administrator privileges however recently certain functions and capabilities have disappeared from these User Logons I think they have somehow become corrupt so I thought I would create a new user and Profile/ User Creation User Problem copy over the files minus the Ntuser dat Ntuser dat log and Ntuser ini HOWEVER when I open the Control Panel User Accounts and click Add or Remove User Account User Profile/ User Creation Problem - I get nothing No window opens I have even activated the built in Administrator Account through the elevated command prompt but was unable to rename as per the tutorial on here and it doesn't work either I think not being able to rename the Administrator account has something to do with me not having true administrator privileges When I tried to save the rename program into the Windows system folder I got a you must have administrative rights to do this pop up so I clicked to activate but it never placed the file in the system folder Other things discovered while working on this - I cannot see find from the start prompt local security policies - Manage Computer does not show Users amp Groups I can boot into safe mode and use the Toshiba Restore option which will bring it back to out of the box condition - but I believe I would have to reinstall all my programs - not something I want to do -- so this is a worst case Armageddon scenario Any idea on how to fix these profiles and or what could be wrong with Windows running Home Premium bit Sandy
Other things discovered while working on this:
- I cannot see/find (from the start prompt) "local security policies"
- "Manage Computer" does not show "Users & Groups".
These are only available in the Pro version of Windows 7.
You should not need to rename the hidden Administrator group. When logging into the Hidden Administrator Account you activated, you cannot create a new user in Control Panel?
I need to connect to a Windows 2003 server via my Windows 7 PC's Event Viewer. It is a non-domain server, so I need to provide different user credentials for the Windows 2003 server. The Windows 7 Event Viewer displays this error when I try to connect
to the Windows 2003 server: Connecting as another user is only supported when connecting to a computer running Windows Vista or later.
This is not acceptable. I need to be able to manage/view event logs on th Win 2003 machine from my Win 7 desktop. This all worked fine using my Windows XP Event Viewer and now it is broken in Windows 7. How can I connect the Windows
7 Event Viewer to view logs on a Windows 2003 server with different user credentials?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista Ultimate.
My problem is that when I Log In to the Administrator Mode I start seeing many errors pop up.
List of errors:
“Catalyst Contol Centre: Host application has stopped working”
“Input Personalization Server has stopped working.”
“Unable to create Temporary folder. Error5-Access is denied.”
Windows Explorer doesn’t work
In addition to this I can’t get into some applications and they sometimes get errors. I can however get into Internet Exployer but not Firefox. The strange thing is that when I Switch Users and Log into the non administator mode everything works fine. I realized all this was happening when I was trouble shooting a bug in the Adobe software with Adobe technical support. I turns out I can’t fix the Adobe problem until I fix this or so they say.
Hi and welcome to TSG what admin account are you using

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.
The steps begin with disinfection from Safe Mode or boot disk, since if Win7 is badly infected it may not repair until cleaned up. Then everything possible to start it is sequenced.
I would also do the hardware tests provided before rescuiing the data to run Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

When I login to windows (7, Ultimate x64) on most profiles (created a new one, affected, logged into my admin account, 1 of 2 user accounts, a clean one for lightweight surfing with no load time for all 3rd party s/w) and my monitor goes from extended (blank) (1920x1080) to ... looking like it has a FAT black border (on secondary monitor).
Also some issues with network adapter connecting and mounted volumes attaching (instead of being instantaneous they take minutes) event viewer doesn't mention anything significant... any ideas?
Interestingly, I can't open Intel's CPanel (desktop context > Graphics Properties) (gfxui.exe) on other profiles.. will get details
Sounds to me like something in one or more of the user profiles has gotten corrupted. you might have to delete one or more user accounts and then re create those accounts which should hopefully fix the corruption issue. I know u might not want to do that; but at this point i dont see any other choice to fix the problem.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/325836-user-profile-corruption-regissues-how-monitor-windows-user-login.html
I recently added an admin user to my comp. and the problem is that now when i reboot i have to either select admin or myself. i do a lot of remoting to my comp when im away and if i need to reboot im gonna be stuck because the comp will not automatically reload my profile. If there is no way to do this, how can i delete a user from the comp. Ill just get rid of the admin user.
Thanks in advance,
If I am understanding you correctly, I think this will help:
From an Administrator account, click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2. Remove the check mark from Users must enter a username and password and click Apply. Follow the prompts.
See if that helps. Good luck!
I need to add another standard user. I have one admin account and one standard user.
After adding the second standard account name and password on Control Panel
I get the confirmation that the new user can now sign in.
However,I get this famous message that the profile service cannot open.
I looked into C:users and find
First standard user
But not the newly created user account. Nor can I find it in the Registry ProfileService.
Why does Window lye to me saying the new user account is available but it did not create it?
Did you sign out of your account and then try to sign in to the new one?
The new user folder won't be created until you sign in and set up the account.
User Account - Add a New User in Windows 8
Can I use the different user types in Windows 2000 to pick and choose what programs my kids can use? I have a few semi-violent computer games I would rather not let my children play or see. Is this part of the different user levels is capable of? If so, do I have to log off, and then let my child log on to make this work? If not, is there another program that does this, or one that perhaps adds a password to get into certain games or programs?
Are there any free ones?
You'd be better off asking in Win2000 bit, but I'm learning it at the moment, so I'll have a go.
Yes, you can restrict them. You will have to log off, but as you are the main person who sets up the other users, ie your children, then you will act as the administrator. You can block acces to many things.
Now, as I say, I'm just beginning, but others will have a better chance. Go to Control Panel | Users and Passwords icon.
If the User must enter a password...is not ticked, tick it.
Click Add, enter the name. Next. select the level of access:
Standard, Restricted, Other
You can modify the account. Click Advanced, Advanced button under Advanced user managegment. In the Local Users and Groups window, doubleclick Users folder, and then doubleclick the user you wish to modify.
This bit I'm a little cagy on, but you could try with trial and error.
maybe someone could carry this on

I am using windows xp with two user accounts. Both desktops have minimal folders and stuff on desktops. The problem is when either user tries to go from the user page to the individual desktop. Very slow, sometimes paints black screen for sometime, sometime repaints desktop few times, sometimes goes back to user page.. and sometimes actually goes directly to the desktop.. very confusing. Anybody got any ideas what is causing this software behavior.
Hello & welcome to TSF,
could you check your device manager to see if you have any (red or yellow) quotation marks
if you do then this means you have driver issues / note down what they are and getback to us
also you need to follw this link
you will need to note any probs, that you have with any of the steps/ save all logs to the desktop for ease of retreival ( DO NOT POST BACK HERE AT THIS THREAD) you will need to go to the (HJT LOG forum) here at this site / make sure that you tell the techs there of all problems when posting
stand strong for the techs there are busy

log into your user, go to control panel, administrative tools, event viewer and look at the logs. What error messages are the failed login generating?
Upon Installing afresh XPSP2 Home Edition, I made a mistake when opening a new desktop account that I share with another. For myself I entered the name "Lary" when in fact I wanted "Larry".
After a day or 2, I noticed the mistake and easily corrected the spelling in:
Cannge An Account
Change My Name
Now I have the correct spelling on the desktop log in page,
Documents and Settings
My folder is still mispelled Lary.
I am unable to right click and rename the folder, because I recieve the message:
" Lary is a windows system folder and is required for windows to run properly. It cannot be moved or renamed"
Is there a solution to this problem? It would be nice to have my name back
Larry...that's 2 r's
Larry....with 2 r's.
If the computer is running fine. I would leave well enough alone. Pain in the but, but if it does not affect performance....why fix it, if it aint broke?
But, if you would truly like to change it. that is beyond me. maybe someone else has an idea.
I have 3 users set up on my PC, running Windows XP. 2 users are fine, no problems with internet, just click, click, click.
The internet on my MAIN user runs VERY slow. I am talking 1 to 1 1/2 minutes to open one internet page to another after clicking on it. And, I am running verizon FIOS.
I purchased & ran UniBlue registry repair. I didn't see any difference.
Since this is my Main user account for my business, what are my options? Save and delete and then start over? OR..........is there something else I can try?
This is "user specific" and only with my main user.
I accidentically deleted a user (built-in), I found that I have no way to
add any new user.
OS:Windows XP Profession Edition
Right click on "My Computer."
Expand "Local User and Group."
Right click on the "New User" folder and select "Add New User."

hello! iv'e had this problem for about 3 weeks. everytime i try to log onto my user name i will click my name then when i try to put in my password it's just a blank white box with the cursor missing. i still typed in my password even though i could not see it and about 5 mintues later it loged on. now sometimes its faster sometimes its slower. i have scanned with avg and malawarebytes and i found nothing. now today when i tried to scan with malawarebytes like 150+ pop-ups saying low memory and other different stuff i can not remember i got the task manager up and just deleted all them. what should i do
It sounds like the malware is blocking both AVG and Malwarebytes. Try running MBAM in safe mode.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/250285/log-in-under-user-name-problem/

Right this is my problem, up untill yesterday everything was OK, I had 2 users both with administrator priveliges one was my name and the other just said Administrator, the gust was off. Then I switched to just Administrator, now every time I boot up the administrator loads first and I have to switch user to get to my normall desktop. Ive tried to delete the administrator but I cant, there is no option to delete. All I want to do is get back to MY NAME desktop, Ive tried to restore but there was no restore settings.
Hi smudger1767, please try the following:
When logged on (doesn't matter which profile as long as it has admin access):
- Click Start -> Run -> type:
- Click OK
- Check the box titled 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'
- Click Apply then OK and then reboot
This will now load the Welcome Screen where you have to click your name and enter a password (if you have one). If you want to load your profile automatically (in the same way the 'Admin' profile is loading at the moment, let me know and i'll explain what you need to do.
Hope that helps :)
I having a problem with my XP SP2 system when I create a new user. When logging in with the new username, explorer.exe does not start and will not start if I try to run it from Task Manager. I have searched here but cannot find a similar problem mentioned. Any help would be appreciated.
I failed to say that this only occurs when creating a user with a limited account. If the new account has administrative powers, it works just fine.
been search for awhile now and cant seem to find my similiar problem.
I have my Username on the box I'm using as a server as, IronServer7
Login/Start menu says IronServer7,
user file says Owner,
accessing the computer via network, username is owner, but password matches for IronServer7.

Actually that's a good security move....
Easy way... create a new account... move your stuff over... delete the old one.
My laptop came pre-configured from the manufacturer (Digital Storm, though that isn't relevant) and they assumed that the name of the default, admin account would be the name of the purchaser (my Brother). Since it's -my- computer, I would prefer to have it in my name.
The name of the account I've changed to my name from Control Panel.
but the path to my documents is still C:\Users\***
there is no option to change the name of the folder there is no (RENAME) in the list
I have already changed the name of the user account as appropriate
Unfortunately you cannot change the name of the actual C:\Users\(user-name) folder. Only the name that appears for the account at log on and in the Start Menu.
A workaround for this is to create a new administrator account with the name you want. Next copy the contents of all of the folders (including contents in hidden AppData subfolders) in the old account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old account from within the new one.
Hope this help,
In attempting to install a router I inadvertently setup a confusing array of user/administrator accounts which leaves me unable to log in as administrator. Two things 1) My description of the problem leaves people confused and unable to help. 2) Given that people can't really know what my intent is in trying to log in as admin. there are obvious ethical issues involved. It's understandable. I want all those user accounts wiped out so I can just start up without logging in as I did before. Will re-installing Windows do that?

I'm sorry, but that's the entire point of using a standard user. Locking the user out of anything that might damage/screw up the PC. Standard user can only use normal programs already installed.
I suggest to run with an admin account, with UAC turned on at max safety AND the screen dimming thing when you see the popup.
That screen dimming and lag isn't just cosmetic and annoying.
It is supposed to lock down any other program and accept input ONLY from hardware keyboard and mouse (hence the lag).
This to avoid malware from simply doing its stuff and clicking Ok on the popup (which would be pretty trivial).
Hi Gang I hope you guys can help me resolve this problem. Trying to install some microsoft things on XP gives me a strange error message. I've tried to find a cure but can't see anything. (I have included an attachment)
I am trying ti install Stopzilla, when i do i get this error message. "there is 1 other user logged onto your computer, you must switch to and log off this user before you can continue" I am the only user (as administrator) there are or never have been any another user on this computer. Tried in safe mode , same problem, scanned with Eset, Malaware Bytes, Super anti spytware, Spybot etc. No viruse.. Ran Systernal Explorer only 1 explorer process so only 1 user..........Any ideas would be great. Several people (searched Google) with same problem
Is this the paid or free version? I have not used this stopzilla software but there are other free alternatives when it comes to installing certain protection softwares. Plus some on-demand system scanners like Malwarebytes and Superantispyware which could work side by side with your antivirus.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/456832/1-other-user-logged-on-problem/
So my parents magically destroy computers fairly often and both deny fault so I've decided to lock down their computer a lot. I remember back when I was in school, they made it so the computer auto logs into the guest account and it would reset to a default with some applications that all users can use every time the computer resets. Stuff that would be installed would get uninstalled after shutting down unless you get admin permission. You could delete stuff without it asking for password but it would always set back to default after shut down anyways. I'd really like to now how to do this so I don't have to do reformats every 6 months. It's like they go into the registry and mess aroundhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/problem-getting-the-right-user-settings-265962.html

OK this is the problem I'm talking about.. I've kinda made a bit of progress.
Heres what I've done.
in the IIS manager, I've left the virtual directory as anonymous access, then on the folder its self I have changed the NTFS security properties, so only certain users have access (not the account that IIS uses for anonymous access), the login box now comes up so I can login, but then once inside that area there is a 2nd secured section (different username/password required) which is where this box appears (see attached file), or I get this straight away if I try and access the site from my own machine.. e.g.
Accessing From Client Machine
--URL-->Username and password requested--> login ok-->inside secured area-->link to 2nd secured area-->username and password requested--> login fails (comes up same as attachment)
Accessing From Server (using domain name not 'localhost')

But how do i Fix it?
I did not create this group of users at any point and was surprised to find that several of my files in C drive weren't visible today. when I used open in Microsoft word I could however see the files with a lock against them. I saved one of the invisible files on the desktop and in properties --> Security saw that there was no authenticated user group. However, in the C drive files, the ones which are visible, under properties--> security there is the authenticated user group, along with the others such as administrator etc. I dont remember setting up such an account structure. Any help is deeply appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Authenticated Users as always been there and everyone that logs into the computer is part of it.
Authenticated Users - Includes all users with a valid user account on the computer or in Active Directory services.
My laptop is Dell Inspiron 14R and use windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I was trying to download itunes but it showed failure and did not respond. Then, I used task manager to close the window. Then, I restart the computer. Now, I see many of my desktop icons missing and also my documents missing. However, those documents are availble in a folder called Uses\Dell folder in C drive. Apart from these problems, the fonts of the internet explorer has changed and its like using a new computer where I have to install programs again. Please help.
Were you able to completely download and install itunes?
try performing a system restore to reset it first
Every time I make a new User and log in it loads up with a black screen and the task bar and says that the system as loaded the default profile. This even happens if I log on as the system admin. My original profile loads fine but nothing else. I think It may be because the folder that holds all the basic information to make a new user profile has been deleted from my Users folder. Is there anyway of fixing this? Prohapps a place where I can download and replace that folder? I am using windows 7 ultimate 64bit. System restore has already been tried but the folder was deleted too far back to recover by that method.
Thank you for your time.
Try this first
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If errors are found run 3 times
If that does not work
Report back and we will try a repair install.
Whenever I log out of one of my accounts on XP it sends the computer into sleep mode or same mode or something. Al I know is I press the log out button and instead of going to the user select screen the monitor goes blank but the computer stays on, I tried pressing Alt Ctrl Del esc but nothing works but restart.
It just goes blank when ever log off, any suggestions?

Newbie here, I hope this is the right place for this post, if not I apologize. The problem I am having is that I tried to installed Office 2007 the other day and Outlook was unresponsive. All other office programs worked fine. I un-installed office 2007 and reloaded Office 2003. Now everything works fine when I am logged into XP. The problem is that when my wife logs into her profile, no programs work and the computer locks up and has to be rebooted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Iam using windows 7 and windows xp in our domain pc's.We have AUTOCAD 2006 & 2009 in our pc's .It is quiet working good in all the windows xp pc's with restricted user logged in those pc's
But in newly bought pc's with windows 7 retail version professional,I found that AUTOCAD is working only in users with administrator rights logged in those windows 7 pc's.
I cannot give admin rights for those users.Only they have to be in restricted group
Anybody can help me regarding this?Please
Did you install Autocad for ALL users?
I have Win 7 Ultimate and have 3 user accounts, say A (an admin), B (a standard) and C (a standard). I don't seem to notice any problems logging in into user A and B.
However, I noticed that when my daughter tried to log in into her account (i.e user C), she sometimes got a dark blank screen. As far as I remembered, it had happened like twice or three times. I had to do Cnt-Alt-Del, and then chose "log off". Then I tried logging in again and it would normally work.
Yesterday, it happened again, and when I tried to logging in (I tried it twice), it didn't work. So I finally have to restart the PC and then it worked.
I am not sure what the problem is. I would appreciate any help.

Hi, I was wanting to change my log-in password for my main username, as my brother got hold of it. I went to the Control Panel and double clicked 'User Accounts' to get the User Accounts page to pop up. Unfortunatley, it didn't, so I tried it a few more times and nothing happened. I then rebooted my pc and tried again, but the User Accounts window never opened. It has been doing this for 3 months now and is really annoying everyone who uses this pc as we all want to change our log-in names, pictures and passwords. Please can you help me to sort this.
My PC Info If Needed:
Intel Pentium IIII CPU 2.50 GHz
2.49GHz, 224MB of RAM.
Thank You In Advance.
i believe you need to log in as administrator
boot to safe mode, tap f8 as you first start up.
whenever i go to start - log off - switch user...
and it goes to the first windows screen where you see the list of users.. if i click on another user, it just turns black and nothing ever happens. i went to the control panel and changed it so you can do fast use switching, and i think mcafee security center doesnt like that, because i have to set it to allow the script change every time...
but it still doesn't work.
someone pleeeeease help!
