Q: Net view/net user

Hello everybody, I have a home network with about 3 computer connected. I am using a laptop and when ever I use the net view command in cmd, I can only view my laptop. Why can't I see the other 2 computer?

All the computer have Win. 7 Home Premium Installed. Is there a way to send messages to those computers within the network, without the use of 3rd party applications... Perhaps by cmd?

I know you can, but I am unsure how.

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.)

Welcome to the windows 7 forum STVH

The best way to figure out the password is to change it and then you will know it if you write it down. This forum does not support password retrievers or crackers.

For some reason I cannot view a user account in Documents and Settings.

Like this:

 Docs_and_Settings1.JPG   41.57KB

I can see it on the logon screen, user accounts, etc. I cannot view it anywhere else, and I cannot view there documents, pictures, etc.

Does anyone know why I cannot view it?
P.S. - I just did a fresh install of Windows XP Home lastnight, but everything else seems to be working fine.

Hi kiwi
You still have History in IE8.
Just open IE and open your Faorites Icon at the top left of the screen.
After favorites opens you will see at the top a TAB for History.
If you have IE setup with default setting you should be able to see past websites.
You can also setup how many days you want to save in the Tools, Internet Options, General Tab, Browser History area and Settings tab.
See the number of days you want to keep at the bottom .

Now the other part of the question about knowing where users have been on your HD is another story. You may need an additional software to do that.
Can someone else help here?

Hope this helps

In Control Panel>Advanced System Settings>User Profiles, I see there are two for my system.
One is labeled as the default profile, and it is 1.63MB. The second is labeled w/ my user name: Home-PC. It is 58.6GB in size.

Why the huge difference in sizes between the two? I was able to copy the default profile to a folder to view later, but when I tried the same with Home-PC, the "copy" button faded out, and I can see no way to view or modify it.

So, again - why the huge difference in size, and why can't I modify my user profile? (or even view it)

I've had some problems lately where one of my browsers stops functioning, and I need to restart to "fix" it. Could it be related to my user profile?

Thanks for your help!

A:How can I modify or view my user profile?

Because your user account contains all the programs files and folders you have on the main drive under that user name.

I'm trying to fix a corrupted user profile using the Microsoft procedure at Fix a corrupted user profile - Windows Help.

In 2010 I created a second administrator user account. Exactly why escapes me now. However, the account name I use at the login isn't listed in the C\ drive User directory. There are two administrator accounts listed. One of which is my original admin account. I suspect the other is the second admin account which has been renamed (?). Following the Microsoft procedure, it snags when I attempt to open My Documents which advises that "'My Documents' is unavailable. Access denied". Does anyone have experience with the Microsoft procedure or retrieving an account name history?

On my laptop, I have a built in fingerprint reader.
It works perfectly, however the built in fingerprint software changes my password to a unkown password for me whever I use my finger to login to XP.
This leads to that I can only login using my fingerprint and not with my password, which means when I'm not around, my family cannot login to the computer to internet, because they dont have my finger .

Therefore I need a tool which displays the current windows xp user password.

Resetting the password makes no sense. If I reset it to 1234 and login with the fingerprint, the password 1234 no longer works... so..

I have a folder with about 20 images and 20 folders (with avi's, images, and txt files inside).

When I initially check the disk size (while the folder is being viewed in Icons View), the disk size reads 28,415,404,695 bytes.

When I change it to Thumbnail View, the disk size increases to 28,415,444,631 bytes.

I know it's only a 39,936 byte difference but I'm just wondering where this is coming from? When I change it back to Icons View, it still reads 28,415,444,631 bytes. How do you get it back to the original 28,415,404,695 bytes?

Probably not what you're looking for but,
you can list desktop icons in list view using file explorer > desktop

Running File Explorer and clicking the UP arrow until you reach the desktop.
Change view mode to list.

This is something that has puzzled me for ages. I open a directory which has some sub-directories and some stand-alone files. I do view details. The file sizes are displayed, but the folder sizes are not displayed. In order to find a folder that doesn't match size with the source, I have to go through the painfully tedious task of right clicking and selecting properties on each folder. With XP, there was a tool I installed which allowed me to display the folder size, but the tool doesn't work in Windows 7.

Is there a way one can easily view the folder sizes without having to right click and select properties for each individual folder?

A:Help!!! How can I view folder sizes in view details?

Just use:

Hello PDSF,

It sounds like something may have gone wrong using the disable full row select if that is the only thing you did that affected folder views.

Usually, it's required to reset folder views back to default to have "Tiles" instead of "Extended Tiles".

Don't laugh if there is a sooper simple fix to this, cuz I just can't find it...

As far as setting all of the folders in Explorer to detailed view, that's a piece of cake.

BUT...When I'm in an application and select 'Open', you know that little 'Select File' window that opens up, where you can kinda browse to the file you want to open?
Well in that little window, there's a little drop-down doohickey in the upper-right where you can change the view to detail or list or whatever you want, and of course it changes the view in that little window.
But is there a way to have it default to a certain view?
For now, it always defaults to List view whereas I want my Detail view, dernit!
And Explorer's Folder Options don't seem to have any effect on it.

Any ideas?

Thank ya.

A:Detail view, List view, defaults...

No, there is no way I know of to do it. As it controlled by the application being used.

On my desktop, I have a folder where I put all my less used shortcuts, I like to view this folder using "icon" view, I set it but within a few moments, when I open this folder again, it has changed all by itself to "detailed" view.

Is there a way to keep the "icon" view without affecting any other view settings of Windows Explorer?

Go to "Control Panel"> Folder Options > Apply to all Folders or

hum; the purpose of folders is to segregate. Threaded views collects like topics in the current folder.

You can reorg the mailbox into one fold and use threaded views, but highly doubt

Right now on any program (notepad, whatever) when I do a "save as" it shows a details view of whatever is the default folder for that program, but then when I navigate to save it on the desktop it shows icons, instead of the details view (see attached screenshot). Same things happens when doing a "file open".

Can anyone tell me what setting I need to change to get it to be a details view instead of an icon view? Thanks

I am unsure as I am currently on a win 8 machine, but I would look inf cpanel>folder options>view. I believe (from memory) there are some relevant options there.

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:Switch User then logoff, back to ctrl-alt-del login not previous user

At a guess, I'd say Classic Logon is the culprit here, as I do not have this issue with Windows 7 64-bit SP1 with the default login screen. Changing this is likely impractical next to the simple solution of ditching Classic Logon (It's an ancient artifact by now)

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.

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?

I've had a problem recently. I think it started after installing StyleXP to change my Windows visual style. I've since uninstalled StyleXP, but it has not resolved the problem.

My user picture that is usually at the top of the start menu is missing. In addition the green arrow icons and question mark icons in the User Accounts control panel are also missing (I just see red X's). I've tried changing my user picture in the control panel and it does not make a difference. I made sure to restore the default icons in StyleXP before uninstalling, but that didn't matter either.

I've since switched to Windowblinds and IconPackager. I've tried restoring default WinXP icons from IconPackager as well with no luck. Any ideas here? I'll upload some screenshots when I get back home, but I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

A:Missing user picture and icons in User Acct control panel

I've tried logging in under another user and I have the same problem. Here's a screenshot of the issue. Notice the red X's and the blank user picture box in the start menu.

Hello I'm looking for a way to give a user admin permissions for his regular AD account on his computer Example he is logged on as a regular user but needs to install software I want to give him admin permissions until reboot or some other point in time after which he loses his permissions again and of to dynamically user user logonid give permissions admin group administrators to Adding has to ask again Adding logonid of user to administrators group to dynamically give user admin permissions I know giving admin access to users is a bad Adding logonid of user to administrators group to dynamically give user admin permissions idea and all but that's how it goes with quot whoami logonid quot I get an ID that I can add to the administrators group by code like this objUser ADSI quot WinNT id quot objGroup ADSI quot WinNT computer Administrators quot To my amazement this works now the user can enter his own credentials in a UAC box and get admin access After a reboot logon this ID changes so he would need to ask admin permissions again It's possible to ask the user for a motivation and log this and to also clean up the administrators group at a given interval or at boot as well as check if a user is allowed to elevate his rights on this computer Of course once a user has admin rights he can circumvent all this but that's something we have to live with What's most important is dat not just anyone can elevate his rights I'm looking for opinions on this way of working Anyone have experience with this mechanism Is it reliable and secure as far as giving admin rights to a user can be secure I may be missing something

Is a standard user account really necessary for tight security for the home user or will a well secured administrator account be sufficient?

Hi all,
I installed Windows 7 and ended up with a default user (AxeL) with Administrative privileges.

Now I enabled the default Administrator account and lowered the privileges of my user AxeL (see Accounts.png).
If I open the User Profiles Pane in Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings the size of the user account is unknown (see Profiles.png).

If I switch back the user Axel to Administrators everything works and I can see the right size in the User Profiles Pane.

Does anyone have a clue on this?
I've tried also Vista and 8 and they all seems affected.


A:Changing user type to Standard User invalide size

Elevate Axel to Admin account, hide the Built In Admin account: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Forums

This is the best way to set it up, the reason a new install is issued Admin account. In five years since Win7 beta I've never seen a reason why not, except for one or two of the most incompetent users imaginable. But who is going to be their Admin for them? Having a separate account just makes your right hand ask your left hand if it can act.

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,


A:can windows automatically load a certain user without the screen to select a user

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!

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?

Here's my issue, I would like to RDP to a Windows 7 laptop. Even with Administrative privledges, it will tell me "Waiting for user to respond". I would like to either switch users via RDP, or force them to log off without prompting.

I tried to google this and it seems neither is possible but I wanted to hear the truths from the horses mouth I have a Win Pro x computer with users who boths needs to be able this really is a must install software on the computer but they can't have access to each other's private folders user folder Basically I see theoretical options a make standard user accounts and give these accounts the right to install software Is this possible and if yes how b make admin user accounts and prevent them from accessing to each other's user folder I can user user or something prevent Installing standard an admin to rights do this but not in a way that doesn't mess with windows basically I would encrypt the Installing rights to standard user or prevent an admin user something file but then windows wouldn't be able to use the folder like it is built to use it and I'm pretty sure this would cause problems Is there another way to do this which doesn't cause problems with windows Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help

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.
