I am working on my office computer which is on the company's domain, that means any number of users can login to the same system using there domain account, with every account there is a user profile that is associated with that account, however one of my co-colleauge successfully login using her domain account, however i do not see her user profile being created, i remember deleting her user profile from c:\users and from registry as well in the profile list a while ago..that means when the next time she will login, a new user profile should have been created, which obviously is not happening?

To prevent regular installers, just don't make the user member of the administrators group, that denies him access to write to program files and most shared locations. All MSI files require administrators right to run, and "run as administrator" will ask for an admin password in this case (which the user should not know).

Quote: Originally Posted by blacksaibot

I doubt this can be done. For instance, any user is proprietary of all files under his profile in users folder (desktop, documents, all libraries, etc) and the proprietary of a file always has enough power to delete it. The recycle bin falls under this category too. He should not be able to delete programs and other shared files if he isn't an admin, but for his private files, I think he's always able to do so.

Hi All:

I am experiencing an issue with a single user where here user profile is not created properly. When launching IE9 it opens/shuts and when opening an explorer window from the dock it displays a warning message indicated that not all drives were mounted.

This machine is running Win7 64 bit and is connected to a domain. Other domain users work. This user has attempted logging onto multiple machines running Win7 with the same results.

Has anyone experienced this? Any suggestions to try?

I've got a Windows 7 Home Premium machine that randomly booted up this morning, and logged into a temporary account. It leaves the data intact in the C:\Users\John folder, but creates a new one in C:\Users\Temp.John000. Everytime you log out and back in, it creates a new account. This is the second computer that I've seen do this. I was on the phone with HP tech support, and basically came to the conclusion to recover. Has anyone been running into this?

Create another account, and see if the issue happens then.

What happened is that your profile became corrupted some how.

So I just recently put up a website and I want a form so users can tell me what should be on the site.

I created the form in dreamweaver, set up a MySQL database in phpMyAdmin with the following sql code:

CREATE TABLE `user_info` (
`name` VARCHAR( 25 ) NOT NULL ,
`user text` VARCHAR( 500 ) NOT NULL

In dreamweaver, I go and connect the submit button to my database, type in all my info (username, password, etc..) and it comes up "An unidentified error has occurred."

My webhost does support php. Something I noticed when I went to save it is that it saved it as a php file.

How can i get this error to go away?

And if its not too much to ask, how can I set up my form so that when a person clicks submit it will send it to my email?

I have been trying to help someone who has had a new hard drive fitted
and Vista premium reloaded.
The best we can do is to load Vista with no User Accounts created.
(We can start up up in Safe mode, too.)
Seems ok, access to Internet established, but when MS advised on over
30 updates, it would not accept an instruction to go ahead and advised
we needed Administrator account access.
When an account was created, it needed to reboot, and then failed to reach
the login screen, showing a black screen.

I wondered if this is a common mistake which your users could help. Sorry
I can't supply every detail of the computer. It's an old Dell PC, which ran Vista
well for a number of years. Checked both Memory and Hard Drive from diagnostics

The computer people who fitted the hard drive don't seem to know what's up,
and are beginning to wipe their hands of it.

Hi Everyone,

I'm using SCCM to setup Windows 8.1 on a large batch of computers for
unmanaged deployment to end-users. SCCM is used to install a couple applications and activate Windows. Afterward, Windows should return to first-time setup and the User Account Creation screen (OOBE default). The problem is that somewhere during
SCCM OSD, Windows goes through OOBE and then comes up without any configured user account.

Think of it like an OEM shipping a new computer with pre-installed software. The end-user will need to create an account to start using Windows. Any thoughts on how to invoke this screen without re-sysprepping after software installs?

Note: Before SCCM, I would simply remove the user account line(s) from my unattend answer file and on next boot Windows would act like it would out-of-the-box (OOBE).

Thanks in advance - dom.nick

windows 8 restart problems, starts new user creation
Ok, This is weird. I was hoping if any one could help me before I re install windows.

Whenever I press restart on my windows 8.1 pc. Windows thinks it needs to start a new user profile on my profile. It says its installing apps and ready to start. Then None of my apps are present and my desktop is clear and nothing works. THen If I power off and leave it off for 30 minutes it works as if nothing happened and my user profile has all the apps and icons on the desktop again.

This only happens if I press restart in windows. It does not happen when I power off.

Does any one know what is going on with my windows 8.1

- Windows 7 Pro in a workplace.

When a unser logs to a machine for the first time, it takes around 3 minutes to create the profile, it hangs at "Preparing your desktop". After the initial logon, the time is more normal, around 10-25 seconds.

What could cause such a long delay to initiate the profile?

A:First time user profile creation takes 3 minutes

Hi Sebster, Welcome to Sevenforums

there are a lot of things that could cause this delay and will depend on your configuration - things such as large office suites and the like need to set up the user area User\apps folder. Also any drive mappings that you have set-up in your organisation, or gpo's, (I am assuming you are on an AD domain), or startup scripts

One thing to check for is non existent server shares, these will be checked several times before being skipped

Just wondering is it is possible to leave admin status on a user account while removing the ability to make new accounts. Alternatively could one make a standard account have admin style(ie. altering files, running files as an admin/in admin mode, etc.) rights except the creation of new accounts? Just wondering if that is possible in Windows vanilla or with other software.

If this is answered elsewhere please just post link.

Thank you very much for your time.

A:Custom User Restrictions(ideally Admin rights -new account creation)

It's not possible.

Administrator account are, by design, capable of doing anything, that's the idea of having them in the first place. There are a few ways of imposing restrictions on admin accounts, but being an admin means that the user can simply lift them himself.

The alternative you propose is quite possible, within the limits of normal user accounts. Any account can manage the files within his own profile at will, and change all his personal settings, but nothing else. To perform admin-only tasks, he can use UAC to elevate, where he must provide an admin user/password to gain his privileges temporarily (to be true, it's the admin who actually do that, but within a standard user session, this being the scenario where UAC shines).

What's your idea about this? What do you want to achieve?

Windows XP Media Edition (I am administrator) - I'm trying to add a phantom printer that will print to a file, which I've done before in other versions of Windows, even Windows XP Home. I start in Control Panel with Add Printer. I ask to add a new "Local Port". I am then prompted for a port name. I insert a name and get message "Specified Port cannot be added. Operation is not possible." I've tried working around this by allowing the Wizard to create a printer port for me, LPT1 Generic/Text Only, then try to edit within "Properties" by asking to add a port there, but at the prompt for a port name, depending what I enter, I either get the same message mentioned above or "Access Denied".

UAC, as you know, improves the security level. Disabling UAC may have allowed some nasty things to happen. Your homework is as follows:

Ouch on deleting restore points!
If you can boot into safe mode...
1. download and run malwarebyes
2. run full virus scan
3. run sfc /scannow
4. look at your windows error logs and post errors here
5. look at device manager and see if there are any errors

Again, I think there was a malicious process that was allowed to run after disabling UAC.

I download the Windows image twice via the media creation tool. The file sizes though same, had different hashes(SHA1). If the images are identical, why the different hashes. Needless to say, the hashes don't obviously match with their MSDN counterpart.
Why is this happening?

A:Problem with the Media creation tool

The hashes won't match because the date modified for the install.esd file contained within the iso changes to the date/time the file was downloaded by the MCT.

Same file size because the date/time occupies the same number of bytes. Different hash sum because those bytes are different.

A:Windows 10 media creation tool problem

I haven't tried downloading the installer so I don't know what format it's in but are you sure you downloaded installer files and not an ISO file which would need to be extracted and burned to a disk or drive using something like ImageBurn?"but it says there was a problem and it doesn't know why, and that my computer cannot do the installation for some reason"Posting the exact error messages would help also.message edited by THX 1138

A:Windows media creation tool problem

What is your intention with Media Creation Tool ?
Are you planning to install Windows 10 over your Windows 7 Home Premium ?

Open the Media Creation Tool link again > scroll down to Download Tool now and click the button.
click Run > select Create installation media for another PC
That will start downloading the iso to your computer.
Make sure you know where the download is going to be saved to.

After that, you have several choices:
1. Burn the iso file to a bootable dvd or usb, and use it for a Clean Install.
2. Use the iso file itself and do an In-place Upgrade Install.( use Step #7 )

Whichever way you decide, make sure you create a Win 7 Home Premium installation disc, or a set of Recovery disks.
That will be you "Plan B" in case things go awry.

I have an Acer Aspire TC 120 that came with Windows 8.1. I upgraded recently to Windows 10. Everything is working fine but when I tried to create a recovery drive and I put in a flash drive with 16 gigs it gets stuck on the page where it says put in a flash drive with 16 gigs or more. I have tried different USB ports. I have tried different flash drives some 32 gig, some 64 gig. The flash drives are recognized by the computer and I can put files on them and use the remove media command when I take them out. I have tried reformatting the flash drives in all formats offered. I have run sfc and no bad files were found. Any ideas?

Hi All,

I have a problem with opening the files I worked for a last week. It's begin when I tried to create a new folder and could not type it's name more than ~7-8 letters and difficulties to copy some files. After that these files with which I have being worked for a week begin to be invalid, properties show 0 bytes there. It's also strange that files begin to be invalid distributed in folders differently, in last created foldes all files invalid, but there are folders when some files invalid but some are yet functional. Totally I lost about 80Mb files in terms of memory (with average sizes about tens-hundred Kb).
What is that, what better to do and what are my options to perform the system.

Best regards,

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!

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?

Resize them to 720 x 576 first and output to MPEG2 for best quality.

I burned a DVD of "Motivational Posters" and some music. It burned correctly and it loads in everything.

The problem is that my DVD player sucks. It only plays the pictures and I can't find any way to play the music at all.

So my question is:

Is there a way I can set up a DVD menu type thing to open up the music folder by folder?


I meant on the same disk. It's a DVD+R. Or am I going to have to make a new disk? and If I were to make a new disk what free software could I use for MP3's? Burner XP is what I used, and Xilisoft's DVD Creator only allows me to work with Videos.

A:DvD Creation

The only option for a DVD to play music if it does not support mp3's, is to encode the music into a dvd Movie with either a blank video track or even some of the poster images you have used. Most DVD players do support file browsing for mp3 so try messing around with the menus when you have the disc inserted.

Hope this helps!

is there any software to make dvd menus and such?

basically i just want to create a private dvd for myself so I can make databases and images and video clips organized in menus and such.

Any software to do that? And is there any software that can export a database into something presentable? (Like does microsoft have any software that syncs like that?)

I guess the most important thing is having presentable pages like frames where I click on a menu on the left and it opens on the right.

THanks for any help.

A:dvd creation software?

Well there is a wide choice.

If your looking to make simple data disk, Try BurnAware Free Edition

or DeepBurner

For DVDs with videos you can play on a DVD player, If you have Vista you can use Windows DVD maker, you'll find it built in.

But what you want i think is something more interactive, Normally you would make a powerpoint presentation, but if you want it on a DVD, im not sure.
You could try Nero

Hi all.
I'm interested in creating a DVD (or series of DVD's) containing multimedia pub quizes. Different rounds of questions on various subjects, some written, picture, music and video rounds that can be played on any DVD player preferably but on a laptop at least. It would be good to be able to (for example) play the intro to a track and ask them to name it then play the same thing again (from the same screen) and have it carry on further into the track come answer time.
Does anyone know of any frontend software that would be good for this? Something written specifically for the task would obviously be best but anything that could do the job and has good online support and tutorials comes a close second.

that is understandable, but you run into issues on the EULA from your ISP which typically will block inbound port 80 which is required by the webserver software

I am aware of windows internet information services, apache,windows server 2008 and linux versions, but am unsure if which is the correct/popular application to use?Click to expand...

imo, depends upon which platform you have skills in software development
(notice:- NOT the same as a desktop{Mac, Linux, Windows} experience).

*IF* you get to the point of moving to a hosting solution (ie paid), then I would recommend you focus on Linux services like Apache2, PHP, Perl, MySQL as few hosting solutions support Windows IIS

Which server and website content creation software I should use/ begin with please?Click to expand...

That's a learning curve question. I prefer RAW files (ie write it all line by line) which means I can change whatever at will.
Other tools can generate a page, but then even the slightest modification requires another complete re-generation

I will be buying a new computer soon and the main purpose for it will be for media creation (such as video editing, digital audio editing etc). And what I hear all the time is that Macs are way better for that kind of stuff. And that is one thing that is making me consider getting a mac. But the thing is....nobody ever says why the mac is better. They just say that it is. So could someone please fill me in here. How do Windows 7 machines compare with macs considering their media creation capabilities?

A:PCs for media creation

The only thing that matters is what software you use. The OS isn't nearly as important as the software you use for the actual editing. I remember my brother telling me that Apple has some free video editing program that is better than the original Windows Movie Maker. But, now you have Windows Live Movie Maker you can use, which isn't great by any means, but its better than the original one on XP in my opinion.

Personally, I like Audacity, a free audio editing program, which has never let me down.

I'm trying to change PDF creation software, and I hope I can get some recommendations here.  The following are the parameters:
1.  Must be free, not trail or shareware.
2.  Foxit out of the question.
I'm currently using one, but I don't want to say what it is, so the results isn't skewed.
Thanks in Advance.

i can't say microsoft word is free but it is probably already on your machine. the later versions will export to pdf. use of a google account may also make it possible. you could attemot uploading an attachment to gmail (or into google drive) then selecting the" change format to google docs format" option and then opening the google doc and selecting pdf as a download option.

One of the first things that I noticed about Windows 8 is that it now has native support for viewing PDF files, like the Mac OS. However, the functionality seems extremely limited. For many years now I have found programs like Adobe Acrobat and Nitro PDF indispensable at home and at work. Adobe seems to have a PDF Reader app for Win 8 but it is getting very poor reviews. Am I right in assuming that Win 8 has no native functionality for generating PDF files? Also, the range of PDF apps in the Windows 8 app store seems very limited. Is it best for now to stick with the old standbys? E.g., Foxit, Adobe, Nitro, CutePDF, etc.?

I work for a company that has multiple customers on different O\S version, namely windows and Mac’s. The users are external based clients and we need them to complete certain forms but the multi platform is causing us some issues. Currently we have forms in Microsoft Word format but these are only editable by those people on windows based PCs not Mac’s. I have a few questions

1, How is the best way to host forms for multiple platforms
2, what is a quick solution?
3, Are PDF’s an option? I can create forms for Mac users but the windows users cannot save the changes made using Adobe Reader. I’ve also tried using Adobe Lifecycle Designer but I’ll admit I’m not adobe wiz..

Any advise is appreciated.
