I can access one user account but the ones that were available before the infection do not come up when trying to log into this PC. In the user account management consol I can see the accounts and they are enabled. But I cannot log into them... What am I missing?

Hi,

A few months ago, I carried out a clean install after a vicious virus attack. I re-installed all the software which originally came with my PC. Which is about 6 or 7 years old now. I didn't bother to upgrade as I only use my PC for home use and my original software copes with all my requirements.

However when I installed my Printer software (HP7410 All-in-one) I didn't install ALL the software, as I didn't use this printer to it's full capacity anyway. Unfortunately I wasn't aware that I hadn't installed the HP document viewer which I require for scanning in some work paper's that I'm required to send to my employer occasionally. I put in the original HP disc again, and proceeded to do a full install, the only option the disc would allow. I'm presuming it overwrote anything that was already on my PC. Everything worked fine after this, apart from the next time I switched my PC on, it asked me to login, with either my account or a .net passport account. Didn't know where this had come from but I did a little search online and felt I didn't require this, so I deleted the .net account.

But for some reason now I have the following issues.

A. Everytime I switch my PC on a login screen comes up which I have to click Ok on before it will load windows.
B. Once loaded a pop-up balloon appears in the bottom right corner stating that it cannot connect all drives
C. the shutdown menu has changed also.

Right, for a start off I don't think I explained myself very well in the title - so I will have another go here.

I have a table of users that I have created (imported from a spreadsheet) to the tune of about 25000 users.

I have a list of calls from the IT Service Desk - however they have not linked the users active directory account into the call, just the callers surname and forename(s).

I want to link all the users calls to the possible users in the database in a separate table.

The tables I have are laid out as follows:

Users Table:

Code:
UserID - Autonumber [b]PK[/b]
User Active Directory Name - text [i](Actually their email address)[/i]
IT Calls:

Code:
Callid - number [i]Unique[/i] [b]PK[/b]
FirstName - text
Surname - text
Call Details - text
Linking Table:

Code:
UniqueID - Autonumber
UserID - number [b]FK[/b]
Callid - number [b]FK[/b]
PossibleDuplicate - Yes/No
Basically I want to write some sort of script that will go through my IT Calls table and query the users, at the moment I am doing it by hand using the query:

Code:
Like "*" & [Enter Name] & "*"
And I am having to enter users names like this, joe*bloggs (as some users Active Directory accounts have middle initials and some don't.)

I want all the users that return more than one result to tick the Possible Duplicate box so I can go through and look at these manually later.

Does that make sense? Any ideas on how I would go about writing a script for this??... Read more

i was just wondering when you do a virus scan and an adware and spyware scan, will it scan other peoples user acounts on my PC. because their files are protected from me accessing them
 

Answer:Solved: virus scanning within user acounts

I'm pretty sure that AV programs act across the whole computer. With AdAware and Spybot (I don't know about other adware/spyware programs but they might work the same), when you install you are given options to install 'for me alone' or for 'all users'. You have to choose the latter to enable the scans to work across the whole computer.

Im just curious as to what kind of input i might find on a topic like this.

thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Can it be profitable to start small ISP? (web hosting, domain reg, & shell acounts)

I would say Web Hosting - yes.
Domain Registration - NO
Shell Accounts - NO

But many webhosting companies do mix domain registration into their packages. I am sure they themselves are not domain registrars, they just register the domain you want for you. If you are going to be a Web Host and really want to make money then you are going to need some dedicated servers and lots of bandwidth. Your best bet would be to do some co-location service. Many web hosting companies do that. There web servers run off site.

As far as shell accounts go, most of the hosting companies out there have taken away Shell access. Which is why I host my own websites for myself and friends. If people want shell accounts they can get one at FreeShell.

Hi
I have two accounts on my laptop: Bryan as admin and James as my local account which I use for my daily workings.
All my work is save to a different partition on the hard drive.

I now notice that if I go to C:\users, I have my admin account but there are two other user accounts James and James.lenovo15.

Originally I found James and James-2 user accounts so I moved the James-2 folders and files to my work partition (just so I didn't lose the info before deleting it). When I signed in again, I could only sign in as a "guest" using the James-2 password.

I have now spent a coupe of days deleting the user account under the User Accounts setting. Then deleting the James account in the only place it appears (C:\Users); and creating a new Local User account in the user accounts (using Bryan admin). However, I find that in C drive I still have two James users - James and James.lenovo15.

I think that when I just deleted the James account in C:\Users it must have left some residual elements somewhere and it recreated itself and the new local account which I names simply James was forced to add to the name .Lenovo15 to prevent conflicts.

Although I doesn't affect the running of the computer, having both users takes up considerable space. James user 4.7 gbs while the new James.lenovo15 has 1.7 gb.

Has anyone any idea how to resolve the matter?

HI All

I have a question about installing a program in the administrator account and then using the program in the user account. The user is set as a power user and I am having some trouble getting the program to run properly. It runs fine when I am logged in as an administrator. Been doing some reading but not finding a solution to my problem. Would giving the user account admin rights, installing the program and changing the user back to power user make any difference?

Thanks, Reddoug

Answer:A question about users accounts.

There are other threads on this but none have provided a resolution to my problem. Running the users check indicates the administrator account exists. However, I cannot select any users except my standard windows user on boot-up, nor can I switch users from the start center, as there are no other users to select at the top right of the start center - i.e., the pix and user name do not contain other user names. The power button on settings doesn't either. When checking the task manager, there is only my own windows user name listed, so no other user to switch to. I installed various reg, bat and vbs files available for downloading on this web site without success.

I hope that there is a setting that has changed - but looking at secpol and gpedit nothing jumps out at me.

Nothing seems to correct the problem. Anyone?

Today I tried to add an account to my Windows 10 computer (Version 1607 Build 14393.321). Not something I do very often so I Googled it. When I select Settings - Accounts, I do not see the option for "Family and other users" like the screen image below. This image is not from my machine - it's from a site that shows how to add an account.

What I see is shown in the screen shown below. If I click on the big + box for "Add someone else to this PC:, I do not get a screen that says "Add a child or an adult?" and then "Lets create an account".

When I click on "Other People" and then the PLUS box for "Add someone else to this PC" it takes me to the inset box in the 2nd screenshot below. From there, I can select Users, then from the Action option, New User, then fill in the boxes. I have no idea why what happens on my PC is totally different than the several web sites I found that take you through this process. Any ideas are appreciated.

The PC has always had just a LOCAL account.

There's obviously something wrong if I can't add users .

I think that as it's a VM I'll ditch it and go back to build 10130 on a REAL machine and try the update again. Then I'll create a NEW VM hopefully with build 10159.

Cheers
jimbo

Hi, everyone!
When I log on, I get that dreaded error saying that the wrong password was given. Then I go back and log in with a different account. I would like to get rid of the user account that tries to log in first, but when I go to Control-User Accounts-Manage Another Account, it isn't listed. Where the heck is it?

Answer:How to Not allow Guest users to see programs and files on other (admisistor) accounts

I have 8x users and I successfully prevent some of them to see the same stuff as the main user/admin can, and did it roughly as follows:

Chose the directory you don't want them to see, then rightclick and chose properties or found your way to security. The trick is to add the name of the user in security to that directory, and then block it ....Deny Access...You can now further hide that directory, and the user will normally not see it, but if he view it, he will get message=Access Denied.

The Guest:I would treat the Guest in similar way.

I deleted one of the user accounts, and they both disappears, so now I'm left with just the built in Admin account, and I can't add another account. When I click on Add Account, it just buffers and times out. I'm going to try the solution on another thread.

Answer:Admin Accounts saving on other users on Vista Ultimate

You are going to need to save it to a shared folder and then log out and into the other account, then you can move or copy the file from the shared folder to the current users Documents folder.

By the way, you are NOT "The Administrator" but a member of the Admin group.

Hello,

We are currently in the process of updating the Windows machines at the university that I work up to Windows 7 from XP. Recently we have been noticing issues when students log into the machines where it might randomly login to a TEMP profile over the Domain Profile.

Any ideas on why this might be?

Answer:Temp Profiles being created on Domain Users Accounts Win 7

I would check to see if you are using redirected folders on the server for the users in question. I have seen problems because of the different folder structure for the "?sers" folder in xp versus win 7.

People:

My Win7 Pro 64-bit machine has garbled names for accounts, users, folders, and user profiles.

I have looked into my copy of "Windows 7 Inside and Out", by Bott, et al, but can't dope out what to do. I'd like to keep the log-on screen names and conform other names to them.

In this forum's tutorials I found #147545, "Windows 7: User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name" but it describes a problem much less messier than mine, so I am asking for help.

Obviously, a man who can make such a hash of things needs a problem-specific, step-by-step fix. Please, someone?

Hey,

My office has requested a simple IM service for interoffice communications, and i have installed openfire on a Centos 5.5 server and configured clients with pidgin, and it works great.

however i noticed several staff members adding accounts for MSN and AIM to their pidgin as well, which does not go over well with management.

while installing pidgin there were check boxes where i unselected all the IMs thinking it would prevent them from being added but i was wrong.

does anybody have any experience with this? perhaps something i can do to disable the adding of new accounts in pidgin, or another IM client that only supports xmpp/jabber

Its a great office resource and i would hate to have to scrap it because i cant prevent the staff from chatting with their friends at work.

thanks so much
 

Answer:Pidgin/openfire for office users, how to block adding of other IM accounts

the im client we use is called neos, for our jabber server

doesn't seem the creators of the app are around anymore... can't hit their domain.

http://neos.en.softonic.com/

However, Neos is no walled garden. It allows you to gather all your contact lists from different messaging networks (ICQ, MSN, Yahoo and Jabber) into a single window -but that depends exclusively on the plug-ins you install on the server, so everything remains under the Administrator's control. That means you can use it just as an internal communication tool and add support for other networks as it is needed.Click to expand...

My problem is that when I hit a web site that is for members only my old Hotmail address is still there on the drop down list of user names along with my current ISP address.

Answer:[SOLVED] wd passport external drivr

Your HP desktop's Harddrive? failed a short test?
Which short test? What utility did you run that tells you this?

the fact that it fails a short test, tells you you probably have corruption.
Its failing to backup when it hits corruption.
Figure out where it fails, which folder, file, subfolder, ETC and go around it. If you can. Get as much data off as you can by doing this method.

Depending on how critical your data is, it may be worth it to send to a clean room but that can cost alot of money.

Try my method first, its a slow process but will get most data

Question: User Acounts

I have three accounts on my PC after going back to the computer expert to find out why my screen was pixilated after opening Epson scan (Previous post Scanner....) . ?User? (to which files were transferred from another file) One named ?Do not use? (the corrupted a/c found by the computer expert) and a ?Guest a/c? (presumably created because of the need to have three accounts when transferring data between accounts?). (?To copy files to new user profile?).
I have all programs etc. transferred except some of my favourites. Transferred Quicken sounds are missing but work in the ?Do not use? a/c. The Accountz program sends up an error message that it cannot find the program and so I have to restore data from a saved copy.
I cannot delete ?Guest a/c? though I have followed all the advice. How do I get into it? There are icons on the desktop for the other two.
Concerning ?To copy files to new user profile? the first instruction is log on to a user a/c other than the new user a/c you have just created or the user that you want to copy files from'. Does this mean the guest a/c? if so I have not been able to log on through it. I have not been able to create an icon. Do I need to?
Sorry to be so long winded but?..!!!
Hope someone can help me out of my misery!!!

Hi

I have a USB 2.0 Western Digital 320 GB External Drive. The Drive is formatted with NTFS. The drive works fine on my home Vista x64 machine.

Last night I wanted to install some software on a Customer's Vista PC.

I used the Safely Remove Hardware utility then removed the drive.

Drove to Customer's house, plugged in the drive and was told Access is Denied unable to read contents of j:

The drive came up as RAW - 0 bytes.

When I went to Run > CMD and typed j: - no problem. DIR - no problem. Could even copy files using Command Shell.

Did a chkdsk j: /f /v - some problems found and resolved but same Access is Denied problem.

In the end I had to reboot in Safe Mode and type the address into Explorer Bar of My Computer to copy files at Customer's house.

What on earth is going on? Did I eject the wrong hardware? (there were 3 choices at time - generic volume, j: and WD Passport Drive - which one should I choose?)

Is it because I formatted the drive in NTFS?

how can i do tha?

Thanks in advanced for any help.
 

Answer:How can i create acounts in different patitions?

You cannont do that as far as I know. You have to create the accounts in Windows 7 which places them in the Windows 7 system partition. You can however move certain folders from an account aftterward to other partitions but that is rather wasteful and will make backups tedious and more difficult to manage, and I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe all moveable account files to a single data partition for easy backup would be better.

it will only slow down your computer if you have Fast User Switching enabled and you only switch users which your previous user account will stay logged in and you can log into a different account thus having the previous and current account using up the same amount of resources TWICE.

You can either disable Fast User Switching or when you want to get off your account just make sure you log off and not sign off

Personally i dont know whats going on currently with my computer its acting up. The net was slow for the past couple of days which im not sure of but it could also be that my ISP is working on something.

First sign i noticed, was that the audio recorder of windows is missing and also the volume control. this is normally found in the accesories>entertainment>audio record or volume control. both of these are missing.

Second sign is that suddenly when i rebooted my main acount that i use was gone ! I keep hidden admin acounts so i could make a new one quick, which i did but the volume control and audio recorder still arent back.

any suggestions ?

I ran adaware and S&D but nothing shows up my virus scan is up and firewall i reinstalled to double check that nothing is coming through thats not supposed to.

Answer:Missing programs,acounts

somethings gone terribly wrong here i think i got a bad bad virus or something but tonns of files are corrupted. I will do a quick reinstall in windows ill update soon thx guys

Am I embarrassed! I have had external drive for backup and to have an image on it. But I am so dense that I don't know how to restore. I have the manual which tells me to go to the "welcome" screen but I can't open any screens of the software. The software is WD SmartWare. . These are the files in the folder. Should I start all over by hitting the .exe file? Any ideas? I'm getting paranoid knowing that my external hard drive backup is useless to me because I don't know how to restore.
thanks
 

Answer:Solved: my passport external drive wWD SmartWare software

I'm not clear on what exactly it is that you're not managing to do. Are you able to launch SmartWare at all? The image you attached is a screenshot of files on your external drive, but as I understand it, if you've created a backup once already, SmartWare should have created an icon on your desktop or Start menu when you first set up the external drive.

If you're asking whether you can launch SmartWare by double-clicking Smartware.exe, though, the answer is yes.

Anyone ever seen Outlook express delete email accounts on its own? I was helping a friend with her computer and she had just switched to a cable internet provider. I entered in all her email account info , she has 3 of them , and assigned the one she wanted as her default. I closed the program and then worked on another issue. I then re-opened outlook express and it had deleted two of the other email accounts and left the default one?? I used system restore to go back to the restore point I had created which brought all three back. But then a few hours later I saw it do it again!!!

Anyone heard/seen this happen? She is now using Road Runner Cable and I am hypothesizing that maybe some program of theirs is doing it? Or is it just outlook express being weird? If I re-install it will that solve the problem?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have/had an issue with viruses in the recent past and am curious which accounts under C:/documents and settings are legit.

There is my personal named account, as well as:
all users
owner
localservice
networkservice
defualt user

Can any of these be deleted? I am worried that a virus is using them to manipulate my computer.

ALSO in C:/documents and settings are the following hidden log files:
guest.log
admini~1.log (there are 4 of these 1.log-4.log)
ad59a3~1.log (also 4 of these 1.log-4.log)

Any suggestions?

Answer:Suspicious Acounts under Documents and Settings

Hello,This is undoubtedly related to the infection you have posted about here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/241930/virus-infection-please-help/ An important thing to remember is that just because symptoms are gone doesn't mean the infection is completely gone.Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.... Read more

This picture shows how my name has been changed in User Accounts and in regedit, as displayed by running winver, but yet all my files are still found at C:\Users\Owner.
When I go to C:\Users, the Owner folder is locked and cannot be renamed even though my account type is administrator, as seen here.
How do I really change the name from Owner to a name of my choosing?

Dear tech support,

I have never seen happen what has happened, and am scared as to why it has...

System specs: Vaio NVidia G-Force Pentium 4 PC, 3.3 Ghz, XP Home, 200 gb serial partitioned hard drive, NIS 2005, adaware, Spybot Search and Destroy,Windows Cleanup!

I switched on this morning, to find that everything on the machine has changed, and things have been auto deleted, or reset.

The first thing I noticed was that 3/4 of my desktop items had disappeared, including Outlook Express, and my start menu layout had been reset back to the easy access default one, rather than my choice of 'Classic Start Menu'.

I had a notice telling me that 'unused desktop items' needed to cleaned up, but ignored that, and had a look at my start menu.
All programs which have missing desktop shortcuts are working fine, but the PC looks to be reacting as though it is being used for the first time, with firewall notices asking me whether i'd like to accept or block programs, and all my e-mails and my email account, and other identity have been deleted!!! Aswell some of the contents of 'My Documents'...!?

I am worried, as I downloaded Bitlord a few weeks ago to download a large collection of acid music loops, and have heard nasty things about p2p software since. Is this the cause? and if so, how so I remove all instances, and files to do with p2p safely? I need to get to the bottom of this, and make sure I have not either a)been hijacked, b) the PC have restored to a last known wo... Read more

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Looks like a trojan...

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run ad-aware SE with VX2 add-on cleaner, Spybot Search & Destroy (with updated database) and CWShredder as these programs will clean a lot of the crap out first. All links to programs are in my signature. Ok..on to the log?..


Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also. Please make sure system restore is enabled by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn OFF System Restore and make sure it?s NOT checked. We want system restore ON and monitoring your current hard drive. Once your clean we will turn this off and then create a new restore point.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be but make sure)

C:\Program Files\Ghwsmeb\Hxur.exe

Check and fix the following in HijackThis if they still exist (make sure you do not miss an entry)

I am in need of some help. I uninstalled AVG anti-virus and now have the following problems:

Can't get into user accounts (start - control panel - user accounts)

Can't get in to do a system restore (start - control panel -performance and maintenance - system restore in top left corner)

Can't get any updates, automatic or from Microsoft update site.

When going to user accounts or system restore they open a box but nothing in them other than the name at the top.

I am running XP pro sp3.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

pop up keeps re-appearing.  Windows 10 pro.  It says: "user accounts...use the list below to grant or deny users permission"
How do I deactivate it?  It's not the one that notifies me if a program wants to make a change to the computer.  

I have tried changing passwords, etc.
