XP Pro locked down to non-admin user

Q: XP Pro locked down to non-admin user

Hi all. I've got a computer in an enterprise environment running XP Pro, off network, offline.

The software manufacturer (Metso) has locked down the computer to log into a user account that has no admin. I can't access any properties, cmd, control panel, etc - nothing but the software designed to run on start up (Metso) and shut down/restart.

I cannot log out at the ctrl,alt,del - the option is there but it just takes me back to the user desktop.

Getting in on safe mode with command prompt is possible but commands there seem locked down as well (ie. I tried to run desktop.cpl - no luck). I thought maybe there is a command I can run that will switch users but then I realized even in safe mode I am still logged in as the non-admin user.

Is there a linux distro that gives me some control over XP user accounts maybe? Ugh.

Thanx.

Preferred Solution: XP Pro locked down to non-admin user

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: XP Pro locked down to non-admin user

In Safe Mode, log in as Administrator and leave the password blank, unless you know the local administrator password set by the company.Make sure you change the Domain to (This Computer) If it asks for a password that you don't know, there is not much you can do.
If that works, you will be logged in as the Local Administrator and not the Domain Administrator. Here you can Right click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change. Here, if you are part of a Domain, click the Radio button for Workgroup to leave the domain. You will have to log out and log in as the Local Administrator again. Once that is done, you can create a new user with admin rights for yourself and add your own password if you like.
If this all fails, your only recourse is to reinstall Windows from a Windows disc.

Ok, I may have made a mistake here, I was told to click this SID thing and change my SID I code in order to be able to install this WindowBlinds application however, it seems to have gone crazy.

After restarting my computer, It now has two users after looking in the C:/users - one Gareth.GarethPC which has NOTHING IN IT. And the other is my original GARETH account which it wont let me access - asking for an ADMIN password however It wont let me type anything in!

So I can't do any activity that requires Admin access, i've been trying to system restore naturally Admin required.

Any help? I'm wetting myself.

Thanks Everyone.

Hi,

Sorry for my bad english...

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

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

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

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

Anybody has an idea?

Many Thanks

Vincent

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

I am running Windows 7 64bit, 32GB Ram, Dual 10 core processors.

All accounts on the box will randomly get locked out. This lockout is occurring "at least on the surface" with no repeated log-on attempts or no repeated bad password entries. Simply press a keyboard or move the mouse to unlock the system, enter password and it says account is locked out. I attempt to switch users and it says that account is locked out also. Every user and Admin account on the box is locked.

This behavior is randomly happening. I have not been able to duplicate the problem.

Password complexity is enabled and it has a file the password is measured against
Number of bad retries attempted is set at 3
An administrator must unlocked the account once it is locked.

Again, this box is not a part of a Domain, thus no domain controller is controlling the user account.

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

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.

It does not matter which of the 2 accounts I log into when I try install certain HP software(Maintenance

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

A:Installing rights to standard user or prevent an admin user something

a) This may be possible in theory but it would not be easy. Don't go there.
b) All administrators are equal. Any restrictions you impose can be undone by another.
The only practical way to do what you want is to encrypt the users folders. Windows doesn't care about user folders so that is not an issue.

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

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

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

My 2nd wife has a Toshiba Win7 Pro, 64 bit, Satellite notebook, never in a domain. I originally set her up as Admin with no additional users. We want to change or hide her account while adding new admin account before sending/giving pc to my son who would not accept it with her info obviously on the machine. I'm worried about losing losing Win7 Pro[anytime uprade] functionality & Adobe Acrobat9 std & Office 2010 when I make changes? Can I safely do this? I can do have image bkups if I need to revert from changes.

Don`t rename her account, it will mess things up big time, just create another account and delete hers

He should just re install windows when he gets the pc.

I have been using an unelevated admin user account since installing win 8.1 pro and I've been having problems constantly (UAC nagging me, access denied when trying to kill processes and so on) and I decided I want to use the elevated admin account as my main. I understand security risks and convenience is more important to me as I don't have any sensitive information on my laptop. I was wondering if I can merge the user account I used until now, which has all my app settings, with the elevated admin user account and use that one from now on.

A:How do I transfer main user to Elevated Admin user?

Nope.

It is the same a switching from any other account to a different one except that as you'll not be able to use the Store apps using the built in Administrator account you don't even get to use the OneDrive synching of settings.

Sorry about that.

My problem is that even though I have only one user account defined on my machine and it is set to "Administrator" it is not being allowed to do admin types of things like deleting folders. I tried to create a user group but that's not an option on the Win7 Home Premium version that I use. How can it be that the sole account is not the admin even though it shows that it is in the account user setup?

OK, so I have an old HP dc5750 desktop that a user needs back on our network. Easy. Unfortunately, the standard admin password had been changed. So I got my handy crack disk and successfully changed the password; HOWEVER, the admin account is locked due to 3 unsuccessful log in attempts, and I have been unable to reset it. There is an "unlock" option with the cracking software, but that won't reset the unsuccessful attempts. I would prefer to not have to re-image this thing--anyone have any suggestions on how to reset the admin?

This morning I was remotely connected (via TeamViewer) to the office computer performing maintenance.
I was in and out of the admin account several times while creating another standard user account.
I tried to go back into the admin account and could not. Tried several time. I was real careful with typing in the password but couldn't get in. The message was something like "the account is temporilaly locked, access is unavalabe". I did a restart and that didn't clear anything.
What now?
Bill
PS I know that trying the wrong password several times will lock the account for 15 minutes.

A:Locked out of admin account

Well; unfortunately; unless you created a password reset disk to reset the password; you may just have to wait. Also though; if and when you are at the computer at the office; you will probably have to go into the administrative options and clear out any check boxes that have restrictions etc.

type at <time in 24 hour format seperated by ":") 1 minute after current time /interactive cmd.exe

"at 16:34 /interactive cmd.exe"

This is system level access.

Edit: should have explained.

It runs cmd.exe from task scheduler which is above admin level. Effectivly giving you maximum permissions. Sometimes this works from guest.

I have a machine on my plant floor that the previous IT guy locked down. The regular windows user can't do anything except log in and run a few programs. However, the Administrator account seems to be the same way. When I log in as Administrator I can get the control panel, command prompt, or anything. If I try to install Office, which is what I ultimately need to do, I get a popup that says this account doesn't have proper privileges. I've tried logging in both to the local machine and onto our domain.

Hello kurtismonger,

Log in as the Administrator Account; then navigate to the Control Panel > switch to Classic View > User Accounts > Create a New Account, now create a 'New User Account'; name it > and ensure that it is a Computer Administrator Account.

Once you have done this reboot the computer, and sign in using the 'new Administrator Account', and you should be able to now install programs.

Give it a try and post back with the results.

Wife turned on computer yesterday, didn't load. Hard shut down retry. Went to into Recovery mode.
We have an HP computer running XP service pack 2. Was running Shaw Secure antivirus.

Since it is an HP there is no start up disk, there is the recovery drive that contains the recovery files. Recovery ran under the "no files will be lost but all updates and programs will have to be reinstalled."

Computer has very slow operation, had a look at My Computer and noticed another admin folder. I have no permission to go into my original admin folder, even in safe mode.

The new folder is labelled Admin.your-55e5..... and a bunch of other letters. Can get the exact if needed.

Since the computer ran through Recovery it is running the default norton. It can't find anything.
Any help would be appreciated.

Also ran it in safemode, still nothing. I am locked out of my actual admin folder even in safe mode. If i check the properties of the admin folder it says 0 bytes and 0 files.

Malwarebytes can scan my "real" admin folder, and I can see all my files as it runs through them.

Internet Explorer will also open automatically every so often and show fake "pop up" for a Critical warning, Trend Micro is out of date.

About a year ago this sort of happened it was a combination of virtumonde and downloader. This time is really different: admin file name is different and I can not get into my admin folder in safemode, also nothing is seeing it.

Hi and Welcome,
While working on the other issues, you could use a linux (Ubuntu) live CD to recover your important photos to external media.

The version of Ubuntu may be different but the process is the same.

Hi

I had a problem with a windows 7 laptop on our network, to sort the problem i took the laptop of the domain, with the idea of remote desktop back in to add to the domain again. My problem is the local admin account was not enabled, i now have no way of loggin into the machine.

I have tried "manage - connect to another computer" I am able to see the menu, but "local users and groups" has a red x through it telling me accessed is denied.

Is there way of enabling the local admin acount remotely?

thanks in advance

Not without having some type of administrative access to that computer remotely.

He provided me with the below link:

This will give you a right click cmd to take ownership of the file you want to change.

This should actually solve many other peoples open posts on this general subject.

Hi,
I am interested in knowing how to quickly turn an XP Admin user into a limited user while preserving settings, documents, etc.. I know this will involve making a limited user and copying settings over. I have found conflicting info on this including ownership of files issues, etc..
I want to do this as I understand limited users are less vulnerable to malware, etc.. Referring to XP sp3 machines.
Thanks in advance for any insight!

A:make admin user a limited user

Create another admin account before doing anything.

You can then switch the admin account to a limited user account while logged in as the new administrator.

Before you run it, right click on it and check "run as administrator" under the compatability tab. Also under the general tab I clicked on "unblock," which might have made a difference.

I have accidentally locked my admind password using "net user" commands in command prompt. problem is I'm not sure what i changed it to.

I only have Guest Priveleges on my PC.
I deleted my other admin account, so my only admin account is locked.

I read somewhere about burning a boot disk (to reset the admin account password), but I'm looking for a different alternative. Does anyone got any help?

That might be my only option, but I hope not.

Is there a way I can enable a login which is currently locked out? Please help.

I wasn't aware this was a possiblilty in XP. What is the exact message you are getting? Does this sound familiar >> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q242917/

And if you boot in Safe Mode and choose the built-in Admin account (not your normal account), can you get in?

Hello!
Some weeks ago a friend of mine pointed out that he couldn't read the properties of My Computer which seemed odd. (If I right click on My Computer and select properties, nothing happens)
The problem has extended to not being able to remove certain programs and not being able to even access file sharing options let alone being able to change them at all no matter how I try to access it.

I Have run a multitude of registry fixing programs and malware/spyware programs and nothing seems to have gotten to the bottom of the issue.

I am stuck, my only option thus far seems to be to re-install Win7 and I am not too keen on losing certain apps and data associated with them. Does anyone have a clue as to what the problem may be?

Hey all,

I bought a used Toughbook CF-45 from the original owner (with paperwork, lest anyone go "sure! uh-huh...").

She retired it from use as an insurance agent 4 years ago, and can remember neither the Admin nor the BIOS password her son placed on it at that time.

I realize this is an old, slow laptop, and paid accordingly.
I can't find the CMOS battery, although I've taken off everything I can get to without major surgery. Not apparent under keyboard, or in any of the bottom compartments once battery & HDD are removed.

Anyone have a suggestion besides send it to PANASONIC for over $100+ shipping? (Please, no "expensive boat anchor" or doorstop comments).

Thanks in advance!

How could you get locked out of your account? Don't you use the password regularly?

Use the DVD provided to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with the licensed version. If under 4gb RAM use 32 bit, otherwise 64 bit.

There is a step there to rescue your files using the DVD or rescue disk.

Stick closely to the steps given and you'll end up with a perfect install, which you can then save as an image so you never have to reinstall again.

A:Bogus Windows Security Alert; Locked Out Of Admin Tools

Addendum: I also ran Spybot as outlined in the Preparation Guide. After running it a few times (and rebooting between each scan) I got the same 5 problems detected each time. As with some of the other scanners, Spybot indicated that the problems were fixed, but each would reappear with each subsequent scan.

Whee.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Mike

Hello my apologies if this was already discussed but I searched the forum and couldn't find anything As the title states on my laptop vista erased files in my user profile while the other user profiles my gf's and the guest profiles were basically left untouched I use an HP dv series with Vista Ultimate gb ram gb hd and ghz if that helps For starters let me tell you what happened Help!!!!!! Vista admin erased other user user relatively left files, files untouched, As of late I have been using the Power saver option so that the screen brightness is dulled so that I can use it in the dark when everyone's asleep as well as the High performance option when my gf uses it shes addicted to the sims and has pulled me in too Normally I have it on the HP recommended option A few nights ago I was using my laptop and instead of shutting down I hibernated as I usually do because my Vista erased admin user files, other user files left relatively untouched, Help!!!!!! gf is usually still logged in The next morning my gf started up the laptop and the password screen for my profile came up and Vista erased admin user files, other user files left relatively untouched, Help!!!!!! she switched users and logged into hers Then later she hibernated as well and we left to run some errands with a friend When we got back my friend wanted to use the laptop to play online chess yahoo games to be exact so I just put in my password to log into my profile so he could play without any issues if he needed to since my profile is the administrator he wouldnt need me to put in passwords if he had to download or upgrade any software When I came to check up on him I saw that my wallpaper the folders on the desktop as well as my windows sidebar settings were Vista erased admin user files, other user files left relatively untouched, Help!!!!!! all gone At first I thought he signed out and went to the guest profile but that wasn't the case Needless to say I was p ssed and decided to look at it later When I did I noticed that the Documents Pictures Downloads Videos folders were all empty so I signed out and checked the other users To my surprise my gf's as well as the guest profiles were left untouched in fact the website my gf had left up was still there the desktop remained the same and her windows side bar was ok and her Pictures Documents folders etc remained untouched same with the guest profile In addition to my pictures Documents folders etc some the the programs I downloaded were also erased the shortcuts on desktop and program files ie itunes youcam and I also had to reinstall windows media player This is constant throughout the entire laptop The only programs that remained were skype the sims and irfanview although its no on the desktop or program files but when I open a picture file or folder it shows up when I right click Also what I thought was pretty weird was that the recycle bin still had all the crap that I deleted from before so what I did was I restored a video I had downloaded to the downloads folder then did a search for the file name and found it in Downloads in the user folder equivalent in c Documents and Settings users Stephen I'm not sure if that the exact path to the folder but you get the point There I found all of my files excluding the programs erased that were mentioned previously Can someone tell me what happened because I'm confused as h ll and would love to find out the cause so that I can try to prevent it in the future Why was it that the Users folders were still ok and if this were to happen again will these folders retain the stuff that I save from now on and erase the old stuff or will it keep the new and the old or will it just not save any of the new stuff I save Thanks for your time and help and my apologies if I rambled on a bit Stephen

A:Vista erased admin user files, other user files left relatively untouched, Help!!!!!!

hello
I don't know what, how, when or why, what I do know is while your still able you need to make another admin account.
that way (not if ) but when it happens again, it may be worse & you won't be able to do anything without admin privileges...

good luck

Admin account worked fine on Monday.  The kid used her (non-admin) account in the meantime.  Now it won't log into the admin account - "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded."  I've read a few other boards on this issue, so I am now doing a thorough virus scan and will include results as soon as they're available.  But I am not confident about moving forward with any of the paths I've seen laid out, and some of them don't apply if you can't access the admin account anyway, so I wanted to start a thread here (I've gotten fabulous help here several times before).  It's running Vista Home Premium SP2.  AVG 2013 Internet Security.  Can't think what other specs may be relevant, but am happy to provide whatever would be of use.  Thanks!!

A:User Profile svc failed logon. User profile can't be loaded." on admin acct.

I got the same message when attempting to login on Windows 7, after no previous problems or changes before shutdown the night before. It continued to loop back to the logon screen even after rebooting. I ended up having to log on in Safe Mode, then do a system restore to restore back to the last restore point, which was a system checkpoint a couple of days earlier. That fixed it, and I've had no problems since. I hope that helps.

I am a complete novice at this. Why does the computer say another user has locked a file (in particular index.dat). Can I undo this. The only "other user" is my husband. Also, are instant messages recorded anywhere? In the index.dat?

Hi Dan,

This can be fixed by changing your power plan settings. See Power Plan Settings - Change and, for the password issue, Password - Require on Wakeup

Hi I was attempting to find a way to have my family a user of folder Locked out of be able to each have their own individual accounts as admins Locked out of a user folder but made so they couldnt access each Locked out of a user folder others files in the C drive So I decided to mess with the security settings Locked out of a user folder tab under properties of the users folder and I edited permissions for the adminstrators which i thought would cover everybody else using the computer Well for the first two tries I edited the admins and unchecked the Allow Checkboxes for full control modify read etc That was all I did But for the third account I tried unchecking the allow and then clicking all the deny checkboxes Now my problem is that I can even access it as the user of the profile because he is an admin as well The other method where i didnt click deny works fine and keeps other people out and lets you in even though it gave me a system warning of consistency But now i cant even undo what i just did because i basically have no power whatsoever to change the security settings or delete the profile We just got this computer so its not a huge loss to make a new one but it will be annoying to have the old folder always there in the c drive Anyone know of any way to fix this or get beyond the blockage ive made

Hello Edge of Anduril, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you changed the permissions to undo them.

Hope this helps,

I have an HP Pavilion with windows 7.
When the user account screen comes up for you to log in on your account, under mine it says "locked".
Why does it say that and how can I change that setting to unlocked.

My account is the only one on the computer and we all just use that one, so there are no other accounts on the pc.

Why is it locked.... what things did you do to become locked?
do you have other admin accounts on machine?

Is it 32 bits or 64 bits windows?
