New User Account Login Issues

Question: New User Account Login Issues

I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit some 5 months back and created following users account :-
User 1 admin
User 2 admin
Guest account standard (default)
Admin (default)

Till recently, none of the other accounts were ever used I was using Users 1 with admin privileges. I have noticed that none of the account including default Guest and Admin accounts work. Upon trying to log it returns with following error “The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.”

I deleted all the non functional account but default Admin account (which again doesn’t work). Created new account via CP with no success. Even newly created Guest Account (default) throws the same error.

I searched the forum for solution and found that I need to manually delete SID key. I don’t understand what I need to delete and attaching the screenshot for perusal.

To recap I currently have just 2 login; Default Admin and created cmc – admin
Help appreciated.

Answer: New User Account Login Issues

Hello cimage.


You have more than 1 account named administrator? I wouldn't even use it for one account, causes too many conflicts.


Have a look at the tutorial at the link below; it was written for Vista but the topic is relevant for Windows 7 also.

I'm the only user on this laptop and my admin account was called "HybridPC" and I disabled the windows login screen. (Turn computer on and goes right to desktop). One day the welcome screen popped up out of nowhere and I had to login. I tried disabling the login screen to where it was before and now I've screwed things up royally. I cannot login to my original admin account or find it. All the files are still there on my C:\Users\HybridPC folder, but I've lost the profile and user.
I think I messed things up further by trying to create/delete other new user accounts. I've attached 3 screenshots showing my C:users folder, User account screen and the netplwiz.exe profiles.

I've been adding/deleting and can't get back to square one. I don't see my user at all on the welcome screen.
Thanks for your help!

Top User Folder is new today and odd looking as I was attempting to fix on my own.

Hello tytlyf, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Let's start to see if you disabled or deleted your "HybridPC" by using the tutorial below to get details about all accounts on your computer while you are logged in to your "Admin" account, then post back with them. Afterwards, we can go from there.

I think it might be a virus or malware. I just downloaded some kind of patch to install windows themes. After I restarted my computer, it wouldn't let me login to either of my user accounts. Sometimes it will ask for a password and sometimes it wont but I don't use passwords. It wont even do anything when I click "Turn computer off". If I let it sit there it will keep restarting every few minutes. I can login to safe mode and change/delete passwords but it didn't help.

Hi guys,
I have Windows 7 Professional and two days ago I turned my computer on and type password to my account and everything seems ok and I go out of my room for several minutes. When I came back Windows was still loading, without any error mesage, it looks good but it wont work. I tried several times to login but i can't, I even tried to login through Safe Mode- same story. The problem is that it is my admin account, I have standard user account which works but I can't use my PC properly by using standard user type of account because when I want to install something or change some system settings I have to type password of admin acc, then when I type it, my screen became dark and I can't do anything, just to turn off a computer by pluging out power cable...

Have you any idea what can cause this problem? I will appreciate your help.

Hi,
I have a Windows 8.1 system on a lap top that was used by a former employee. Her name was still on user name and I couldn't change it without Admin privileges (otherwise was asking for a smart card). Found out how to get in to admin in safe mode with Net
User Admin yes- then discovered that the old log in and information / desk top is no longer available. The docs are under Users (old employee's name) in C drive, but the docs and settings no longer show up and the admin log in is the only one available - no
option to change users.
When I went in and said Net User Admin no - thinking if I disabled admin user it would go back to the old log in -  there was no log in available at all.

Help?

Hello.

Since I bought this computer, I've had issues. I started by creating a user with my personal email address, but then thought I wanted it for work so I deleted the Microsoft account associated with that email and created another with my work email. However, I've noticed that some of the apps aren't working correctly and needed to use my personal email again. For awhile, Microsoft accounts wouldn't allow deleted accounts from coming back but it appears it's working now.
So, now I have a Microsoft account with my personal email address but the primary user on my PC is still associated with the work Microsoft account. I can't find a way to change this and it's causing problems since that email doesn't exist anymore. Is there any way to change the Microsoft account that's associated with a single user?
The only other thing I could think of would be to create a new user, promote to admin, and swap everything over manually before completely removing the user associated with my old work email. I tried this, but when attempting to log into the new user it says "cannot login, please visit accounts.live.com to fix the issue". However, whenever I go there and log into the new users account, there's no instruction on what to do or any indication that there's something wrong.
So, I need to be able to do one of two things:
1) Switch the Microsoft account associated with the primary user on this PC or,

I was having trouble shutting down my laptop (programs freezing and such), so stupidly I held down the power button, even though it was accessing the hard drive sporadically. Anyway, I've since rebooted and now whenever I try to log into my user account, I get the message: "The system could not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case." At first I thought I may have corrupted my user account files, but I get this message no matter which account I try to log on with (including the Administrator account). So anyway, I can't get into safe mode either because that also requires me to log on as somebody and thus gives the same error.

Does anyone know if I might have corrupted some file that can be strategically replaced, thus magically allowing me to log on again, or is the whole situation hopeless and I'll have to reformat?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Every time Windows 8 boots, the system tries to login as the last user account that was used. If the account has a password, the user will be asked for a password first thing when the system starts up; if not, the system will directly log in to the user account.
Some users in my house don't want to have a password and I have to log out of their accounts and again log in to mine every time I start the computer after they used it. I'd just prefer to start with a tiled user list, in a similar fashion as it was in Windows 7 (or after you log out in Win 8).
Is it possible to disable this auto-login feature? The only way I found involves the system asking not only for the password but for the username as well, which is hardly satisfactory. Thanks!

Answer:User account auto-login

Hello Ben,

Unfortunately, the only way is to have each user account password protected. Otherwise it will always auto sign-in to the last user account that signed out if it's not password protected.

I will start by saying I am new to the tech support forum thing, and this is my first site. I am an intern at a company working with a team who supports local and of site end users and maintaining the whole network functionality. The whole network is windows xp and windows 2003 server for file share and mail. Today I went to install a new printer and then logged into the user pc to whom needs the printer. I logged into the domain with my admin account to install the printer driver, the driver had been added to a folder on the network which is mapped. I installed and everything was fine. when the end user logged in her desktop was different so she called, and i checked it out, when she logged in rather than using her account it created user.domain account. No matter what we did we couldn't get her profile to load, we were able to recover everything from the account "user" but I didn't get what happened. Later that day my collegue experienced the same thing but this time the user logged onto a rogue account, what i mean is that the user was no where to be found in documents and settings. We saved a document on the rogue desktop, then logged in as admin to search the drive to find out where the document saved to locate profile, in the end it was non existant. Right after we logged into user and and all of a sudden the right profile loaded.

Does someone know what is going on?

Hi Everyone!

I noticed that I have an additional account shown at my login screen. It's not a user account I created, and it doesn't show up under Control Panel>User Accounts. The only thing that shows up in the User Accounts page is my user account (shown as admin), and a guest account (shown as off).

I'm wondering if I should be worried about this second user account shown at the login screen, or if there was a way to remove/hide this 2nd user account from showing up at the login screen? I'm not sure how it came/shown up in the first place. I'm hoping someone can explain this issue to me and/or help! Thanks!

Answer:2nd user account at login screen, Should I be worried?

Your forum system specs indicate that you use Avast for your antivirus app. However, did you ever use ESET? If so, then please see this post. If not, then use Windows (file) Explorer to see is there is a user folder (C;\Users\username) for this additional account. If there is a user profile folder for this additional account, then the date on that folder and its sub-folders might give you a clue about how long the user account has been active.

I figured once the account was gone no problem, except the PC still wants a live password for that particular account.

Somehow I have forgotten my password for my user account. Honestly I don't remember ever making one but nowadays I tend to forget plenty. For those wondering how I could have forgotten the password I haven't used my computer in almost 6 months.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've tried every password I've ever used and to no avail.

Then I used ctrl alt del to go into the other login screen and to login as administrator but that didn't work either. I tried "administrator" with no password, then "administrator" with "admin" as password, then "administrator" with passwords I frequently use. Nothing. Computer says check user name/domain/password.

Iam wondering: when I go into this login screen the "user name" window is already filled in with "photekxl," a handle that I frequently use (as you see here). If the window is already filled in does that mean I definitely have an account with that name, even though I don't remember the password?

Also tried "guest" with no pass and it says my guest account has been removed and to "contact the system administrator." Funny.

Please tell me there is a way to get into my files as a guest or something without having to login somewhere? Boot from a CD? Hack into it somehow? I have lots of school and work related files that I simply can't lose so reinstalling is not an option unless it's the only one. PLEASE HELP!!! Appreciate the responses.

I have two user accounts on my PC - Staff and Administrator. I loaded Win7 a few days ago and created the Staff account. Earlier today, I changed the Staff account from an Administrator to a Standard account. I was logged on as Staff when I did it. I then logged off and back on and when I did, only the Administrator account was on the login screen.

The Staff account still exists under Local Users and Groups. I disabled it, restarted and then reenabled it but no change. I don't think that it had a password when I deleted it - I don't add the password until I am done with the machine to make it easier - so many reboots.

The PC has Win7 Pro x86 and is on a workgroup. Any help would be appreciated.

The password is correct, but it gives the error
"Windows can not connect to the Group Policy client Service."

I am able to login to the Administrator account. I know the laptop is still able to reach the internet. So, I don't know what the problem is here. The error gives no info on how to resolve it.

Any insights would be appreciated.

Thank you,



Hi,

i just had had this same issue occur, I solved it by doing the following:

1) in the search bar bottom left type - command - left click the found "command prompt" and select run as administrator
2) in the command window type - sfc /scannow - then hit return
3) this may take some time to run but it does report its progress
4) once finished reboot

you should now be able to log back in as non admin.

Hiwhen logging in to my xp account i have to wait at least 2 minutes, the welcome scrren just shows "loading user settings".I looked at my user profile in the system settings and noticed that my user profile for my account was 0.98GB. why is this so big and would this be effecting the log in speed? If so, how can i reduce this to a more acceptable level.

Just as a followup, the problem seems to have been fixed by changing the user profile type to "local". Now, if I can just figure out why it was being changed in the first place...
Recently, I added Windows 2000 Pro to my system. I've been using it pretty exclusively, but I've run into a problem.

The problem started a couple of weeks ago, for no discernable reason (I'm sure there's one, I just don't remember it!): My user account started hanging on login. I could log on to it fine, though, if I logged into the Administrator account first after a reboot, then logged into the user account.

That is no longer true. Now the user account hangs every time. I know that the problem is with one of the programs that autostart on login. Problem is, in Win2kPro, I don't know how to turn off programs for that user account only!

I want to turn off all auto-starting programs, and see if that fixes the problem. If it does, I'll turn them on one by one, logging in and out for each, until I find the problem program...

I suspect the problem is with Norton's Systemworks 2002 suite, but I don't know where. I'm reluctant to just uninstall it from Admin, because I've already received Bugbear once this week, and don't want to leave myself open for possible further attacks.

Appreciate any application of Clue that you can provide. I'm pretty savvy with Win98SE, but am still in the learning curve with Win2000.

Hi all
Mods feel free to move to appropriate sub.

I am having a issue with a network drive and Win10
ASUS AC 3100 router with a usb connected Western digital My Passport portable 1 tb drive.
The issue is when I attempt to access, I'm told to login to a live account. I forgot the password so I went thru the recovery procedure and Live said there was a problem with the account and delete the account and re-establish. I figured once the account was gone no problem, except the PC still wants a live password for that particular account.
1- What do I do now?
2- login for the PC is a pin, can I use the same pin to access the drive?
3-if so how?
4. Should i re-establish the Live account

when my windows 7 32-bit laptop starts up and displays the login screen there is an account that it seems to want to default to called ./user

when the OS was loaded that was the original user account. since then that account has been deleted, however it is still showing up on the login screen. i believe at one point someone may have deleted this account from the user accounts on this laptop, as well as the folders associated with the profile.

Hi.

I recently changed the settings on my computer's administrator account to deny access to third party cookies (can't remember how I did it or how to change back), I don't know if that effects the limited account, but now I can only login to email accounts with the administrator account. In the limited user account Gmail and Yahoo wont even load the login page. Hotmail will load the login page but when I enter my password it says their is no connection. Other logins, like here, seem to work.

I have XP sp3, IE8.

Is there any way that I can fix this so that I can login to email accounts using my limited user account?

Hello

When I booted up my Acer netbook yesterday, I saw two user icons shown on the Windows login screen instead of one. Aside from my own, the other user name was 'spcnywicl' - not a good sign.

I logged into my own account and removed the user in the 'User Accounts' section of Control Panel. Unfortunately it keeps coming back.

I ran regedit and did a search for the above username. It cropped up in

The bottom entry was

Hi,

I created a secondary user account on my PC. When I try to login, it will look like it's logging in, but it just logs back out, returning to the main screen to choose an account to login to.

If I'm logged into my main account, and I switch users and try to login to the newly created secondary account, it logs me out of my main account, and doesn't login to the secondary account, and once again, returns to the main screen to choose an account to login to.

This also happens with the guest account.

In addition, it does not give me the generic error: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"

How can I fix this?

Answer:Created user account, unable to login

Hello Dutch,

If you create a new user account of the same type, will it allow you to fully log on to it?

If so, then you might consider using it instead and copy over anything you want from the old account to the new one.

Hope this may help some.

I have two user accounts on my Win7 Pro PC - Staff and Administrator. Earlier today, I changed the Staff account from an Administrator to a Standard account. I was logged on as Staff when I did it. I then logged off and back on and when I did, only the Administrator account was on the login screen.

The Staff account still exists under Local Users and Groups. I disabled it, restarted and then reenabled it but no change. I don't think that it had a password when I deleted it - I don't add the password until I am done with the machine to make it easier - so many reboots.

The PC is on a workgroup. Any help would be appreciated.

A few days ago I found that I could not log in to any of the 3 accounts I have set up. After clicking on the user icon, the right user background screen would load, and then I go back to the log-on screen and Windows says "saving your settings".

Starting the computer in Safe mode lets me log into my Admin account. I also managed to create a new user account from here, but cannot log into that one either, I get the same reaction as trying to do a login from the normal screen.

I am attempting to get my built in Administrator user account to show up on the login screen.

When I look at the properties, I do not see anywhere where I can assign a password to it. Nor, am I able to activate it to appear on the login screen. (Perhaps there is a different way altogether to login to it?)

The user account that I am using has administrator priviledges and shows up in the Administrators group along with Administrator. So, I think it should be the same thing as using the actual Administrator account.

However, when I try to grant permissions for users on another computer on the LAN, the Local Area Connection Properties box does not open up the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks.

And that is where I am stuck. I have no idea as to how to get into item and am wondering if I need to login to the Actual Administrator user account.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
 

Answer:Make user account Administrator appear on login screen

You can add Administrator to the Welcome screen using regedit. You would open regedit then navigate to this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>WindowsNT>Current Version>Winlogon>>Special Accounts>User Lists.

Create a new DWORD value and name it &#8220;Administrator&#8220; (without the quotes). Then modify the DWORD value making it '''1".

Administrator will show on the Welcome screen after a reboot.

SETUP
I have a small domain of computers and a couple user accounts.  Each of these user accounts areconfigured as autologin on many different computers (e.g. the account "user1" will autologin on five different computers).  The auto-login
is configured in the registry, the profile is on a network share, the profile is mandatory.  Generally, everything with this setup works fine.

PROBLEM
Occasionally, the computers will get a BSOD.  The particular driver/cause of the BSOD varies, but regardless of this, the behavior is always this: the computer blue-screens, then next time the computer powers on and it attempts to autologin to the previously
mentioned domain user account, Windows displays an error message saying:
"The User Profile Service service failed the log on. User profile cannot be loaded."
The only fix is to then log in as an administrator (either a local admin or domain admin) and close out a dialog box that pops up saying:
"Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"
There are two options given, "Check for Solution" and "Cancel".  Clicking on either of these options (or just X'n out of the window completely) and rebooting the computer then lets the domain account autologin.

Possible Fix?

It seems as if the computer is forcing an administrator to acknowledge that there was a blue screen before it lets any non-admin account log on to the computer.

Well, that didnt work.

I have no idea how to change this so that the administrator account is the one pre-selected.

Yea this is a stupid thing to complain about. But I've gotten used to logging in one way, and it's super annoying every time I forget and try the old way. Especially if I'm not in the best state of mind lol.

Oh, and for some reason creating a Guest account doesn't do this. Admin keeps priority. But Standard users are evidently more important than the admin >.>

My apologies if this has been asked a thousand times, but I'm against the clock with a work deadline and I have an issue.

My Mum uses her pc for work and has a recurring intermittent problem. She uses her microsoft account to log into a win 10 installation. It was a win 7 pro upgrade, but if I recall I had wiped that off and reinstalled win 10 from scratch since.

Most of time this seems to work but sometimes it doesn't and the uncertainty is leaving her wanting to leave the pc on.

She says she goes to log in and gets told her password in incorrect. She tries again and again with many restarts and eventually she gets in. But with the exact same password. I'm unable to verify this, but she isn't normally so inexperienced as to not notice a caps lock etc.

I was wondering if this could be an offline/online internet issue or intermittent microsoft server issues but I expect not? Any advice?

This only started happening a few hours ago, system restore didn't work. At this time I am using my fathers account to get online.

Can you login to your father's o.k.?

Have you tried booting into safe mode and seeing if your user account works?

Real quick, here are my system specs:
Hardware:
AMD Atholon 1700, 256RAM, Soyo K7 combo mother board
Windows2000 pro, ServicePack 3, all the latest updates and security patches.

Ok, now for the problemo
When booting up, everything goes great, woohoo! However, after loading windows and logging into my user if I try to run ANY applications whatsoever; first the program hangs, then the computer freezes.

Now here's the strange thing, I've found away around the problem - but no fix. I CAN boot into safemode, great.. the really strange thing is that if i load windows normally using the "logon using dial up" option - windows runs fine! I can run whatever apps I want no problems. Doesn't that seem strange?

Recap:
I can't use windows if I load it normally, but I CAN use windows if I load it using "log on using dial up".

I've ran and reran spyware killers, antiviruses, trojan hunters, etc. etc. to no avail. I've defragged, used disk cleanup, and played with boot options, no luck. Any tips? I sure hope so cause I'm at a loss and this sucks

Thanks!

Question: user login issues

Hi.Every single day I put my laptop computer in standby every time I am finished using it. Once I start it up, it normally asks me for my password. However, after I put in my password in the first time, the screen goes blank for a couple seconds and the screen comes back again, prompting me to put it in a second time. Why does this happen, and what can I do to fix it? I have used my Norton 360 and Malwarebytes' to check for problems, but neither of them show any problems. What do I do?It doesn't happen every time I log-in to my computer, but it does happen quite frequently.. for no apparent reason.

Hi sorry to be one of those guys whos first post is one asking for help but here I am, so I appreciate any and all help and hope one day I can reciprocate the favor I also havent seen this problem described anywhere else online and thought people may find it fascinating as well.

When logging into the Primary user with admin privaledges account the desktop no longer has files and icons it used to have, and the start menu no longer shows the list of dfault or frequently opened programs (some programs but not all are also missing from the start menu programs section) If I open my documents from the start menu it takes me to an empty folder (not even my music or my pictures default folders inside)

I also have restricted permissions and cannot change any of the folder view options (such as show hidden files and folders)

When examing the Documents and settings folder I found a new folder called "TEMP" inside are the standard user account folders (application data, local settings ,documents ,desktop, etc) these folders now contained whatever I put in the my documents folder or on the desktop. The actual user name being logged into still has its folder located in the documents and settings folder and still has its files and folders intact.

It seems that the login however now has these new TEMP folders associated with it and a scan of Malware bytes has revealed nothing more then an ask.com adware toolbar. (but I believe the virus may have been removed prior to me having ... Read more

Hi,

When I log onto a windows 10 computer, log out, remote onto the computer with a different account and then log out, the login screen wont update the display name but it will update the user name.

I noticed this started with 1703 and have the same issue with 1709.

Any idea on how to get the Display name to update or to completely hide the remote users details and just show the original users login details?

This is an example of the login screen after doing the above process. Also seems to happen to some users that share a computer.

Just today I turned on my PC and it came up to my login and requested my password. What used to happen was I got a screen that showed 3 different user selections. Mine, my daughters and the guest account. Now all I get is mine and I have a switch user button below the login. If I click that I get a screen asking for username and password. I can enter my daughters name and login fine but when I go back to switch users it take me to her login and I have to click on the switch user again and enter all my info. What happened here?? I want to get the screen back that showed all available user selections when booting up, logging off or switching users. Please help !!

Go into safe mode by tapping F8 key as soon as you have turned on your PC. Select Administrator account which is bulit in the Safe mode and from the Control Panel select User Accounts. Delete and remake every one of them, and that should work.

Hi, ok whenever I log onto my Account on XP it seems to take forever for my startup programs to load.  However when I get onto the other account on XP, everything loads up fast.  Why is it doing this or what can I do to fix it.  I have ran spyware scans, antivirus, defragment, diskcleanup. Any suggestions?

Answer:User Account Issues

Ahol:Try checking the running processes to see if there are any differences between your main user account and the others:1. Press Ctrl, Alt, Del together one time to open the Windows Task Manager.2. In Windows Task Manager, choose the Processes tab.3. Click the Image Name button at the top of that column to sort the process names alphabetically.  4. Write all the process names down.Now log off your main user account and log on with the other account and check the processes there to compare.  Write down the ones that are in your main user account but not in the other user account and post a reply here so we may look them up for you.  It's probable that those processes are linked to the cause of the slower boot time, though there are many other possible causes.

i'm having trouble deleting accounts in the program files/users file. this was a second hand computer with vista on it. i also can't make it stop asking me for permission to make changes. i've turned off UAC to no avail. i downloaded the "take ownership" thing for right clicking...took ownership and still can't delete it. i also unlocked the hidden administrator account like you said. these accounts that i want to delete don't show up when i turn on the computer. one of them is for the guy who had the computer first.

Answer:user account issues

Hello Chuck, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend to reinstall Vista to start fresh again. There's just no telling what else may be installed on the computer.

What is the brand and model # of the computer? I'll be happy to see if I can find instructions on how you can do a factory restore on it.

Hello Folks,

I'm in Stockholm, Sweden living with a friend while I study. To repay her kindness I've been helping her with various things around the house. One of those things involves computers.

She has a Dell computer running Windows 7 Professional. She received this computer, which was originally destined for the Mexican embassy here in Stockholm, from a friend. The friend said that she would never be able to default her user account for start up. My ego and I agreed this was an oversight, and proceeded to 'delete' the Mexican account.

Now when I start up, it auto-defaults to the Mexican account, which isn't 'there.' When that fails, it kicks me back to the user log-in page. There it displays the Mexican account, or 'log in with another account' option. If I type in the name of the other users I left, I can log in, otherwise, I only see the Mexican account.

Once I log into the desktop, and log out, it shows the 'proper' result of her account, the one I credit for myself, and the guest account.

My question: how do I un**** this situation? And is it possible to truly 'delete' this Mexican account so this doesn't happen?

Thanks for any help provided, and time given.

Humbly,
Comrade

Hello Comrade,

Double check in netplwiz to see what account it may have selected to automatically log on to at startup. You may need to change this to the account she wants instead.

Hello, I have a thinkpad z61t, with XP fully updated. It's joined to a domain. I'm having some strange problems with it, when a user logs in. I'll first preface this, saying that when I log in, everything is fine. When this other user logs in:

1. There is no sound. The hardware profile shows the sound device as functioning, without problems. When I go to the sound control panel, it says there is no sound device.

2. Network drives do not mount. This is a domain machine, which mounts drives via a login script. These drives do not mount for this user.

3. I cannot mount a new network drive. When I try to map a drive (say Z to a UNC path (say //servername/share), it fails. When doing this repeatedly, it either says that a drive isn't functioning properly and can't map, or there is a problem with the network. I can go to Start...run.... and get to //servername/share just fine

I imagine that points 2 & 3 are related. The user is an admin on the machine. No virus/spyware that I know of. She did get a windows error pop up when I logged out, that said LLactrlw.exe encountered a problem. I googled, and couldn't find that. I did find DLACTRLW.EXE, which is part of a Roxio CD/DVD authoring suite. It relates to drive letter mapping. Which makes sense as to why I can't map something to Z:

If you don't use roaming profiles, try rename the user's local profile and then have her log in again to create a new local profile. Might be something in the local profile has become corrupt.

If you do use roaming profiles...Well there's always the fresh start option. ^__^

Hey, first let me thank the members of tsf.com, the site has helped me with many problems over a few years; normally I just search the forums for my problem and am able to come to some sort of resolution from there but this time I cannot seem to find anything similar here.

My problem started with a BSOD boot problem on my laptop because of a broken registry hive. I managed to fix the problem by replacing the security and software hive with the copies found in \windows\repair. That allowed me to boot but now I'm experiencing some different problems which I'm sure are a direct result;

Firstly, when windows loads on the laptop I am, as expected, shown the welcome screen with the user selection. Everything appears normal and the users are displayed correctly. The first time I logged on to each account after I "fixed" my BSOD problem the small dialogue box appears that is normally shown on an accounts first run, the one that says things like "Configuring settings for Internet Explorer". and then once the profile is loaded it appears like a new account on the machne with default settings; the My Documents folder is empty, default desktop background etc. Shortcuts in the start menu, which is populated exactly as pre-problem state, do not work and the programs must be run directly from their executables. When I looked at the HDD everything seems to be intact and the only problem I can see is that instead of loading the 'username' profile from Documents &... Read more

Recently i allowed a family member use my only pc, and somehow user accts is corrupted. The pc went into automatic repair, it couldnt perform it. In advanced options, tried using recovery flash drive, that failed to execute- i dont know why, then system repair, failed! Then system restore, guess what? Failed. The only option that does work in advanced option is the command prompt. I only need a command line to use to regain control and login . i even scanned with chkdsk/f/r it found nothing wrong. I can still boot into a flash drive or inserted disk- but anything resembling recover or restore is still a mystery. The last resort would be to buy an install disk and choose to repair or reinstall windows - i have the (key). Iam asking this on any tech forum to try compare results.

Sometimes everything is fine but I just don't understand it really. Yesterday evening everything was working as it should. Today the problems are back. Anything MS relates is slow. for example even trying to get into outlook.com takes ages

Store is taking ages to check for updates too. Everything else internet related is absolutely spot on and working fine

Googling around shows its not an uncommon issue but no real solutions. Mentions of make sure your machine is verified. But mine is, always has been and same for the user accounts. Is there a way of re verifying it. There is no option under my account in settings.

Answer:User account and family issues

Its worth noting our high spec desktop NEVER has this problem. Anyway after about 20 mins or so the problem has gone on the laptop! The family settings are available on setting screen and Cortana now finds the summary page and can access notebook without just cycling and cycling. But this happens too often, I am sure the issue will be back. Question is, why is it happening?

so on my home machine, when you start it, it comes to the welcome screen and you have to click the user account you want to use ("home computer"). then it starts up and everything is fine. so i was trying to figure out how to make it start right up without going to the welcome screen just so it would start up quicker. so, i went to control panel, user accounts, change the way the users log on and off and simply enough there was a box that was checked that said go to welcome screen on start up. so i unchecked it.

side bar with important info: in the user accounts deal, there is an admin account called "admin" and then another admin account called "home computer" or something like that.

now when it starts up, it skips the welcome screen (good), but it loads the "admin" user account instead of the "home computer" one. now it doesn't sound that bad, but it jacks all the settings, my documents, the desktop etc. so i need to get it to load the "home computer" user account as the default or something, but i can't figure out how to do that. i'm still thinking easy fix so i just go back in under both accounts and check the box for use the welcome screen, but it still doens't go to the welcome screen on boot up. i can get to the "home comptuer" account, but i have to boot. it loads the "admin" account. then i have to logoff and then choose the "home comptuer account".

Does anyone know of a method to approve apps to pass User Access Control?

I use Thunderbird for my email. Each time I open it, UAC prompts me for permission. Is there any way to grant permission to individual apps without shutting down UAC altogether? I've researched enough to think that it may be possible - but I'm still unsure of the exact "how".

I've eliminated the UAC prompt at the wife's office by adding the UNC path (to their file server) to the Intranet sites in IE7. But this doesn't seem to work with local files on my home system. It may be a case of my screwing up the syntax tho'.

Any suggestions?

Answer:User Account Control Issues

I seen several statements to the fact that there is no way to white-list a program for UAC:The reason UAC doesn't allow "blessing" of an executable is becuase it would allow lower-privileged applications to start blessed higher-privileged applications and abuse them. Imagine the (likely) common case of a user blessing a command prompt to always run as administrator. A lower-privileged application could thus start the always-trusted command prompt and use it to elevate its privilege level and abuse the system.There should be some way to modify certain paths or actions to not need admin privileges but I do not know how.

Hello everyone.

Anyhow, i have problems with UAC account setting:
- I can only disable UAC account via msconfig.
- If using Control Panel, I am not able to click any link that has the shield logo beside it. The window will appear and simply dissappear seconds after.

By using the standard Administrator setting (not the true Administrator access):
- I cannot perform Windows Update. Error 8007005
- I cannot log-in to Windows Messenger. Same error message
- I can connect to my wireless router, but the icon is showing as 'not connected'
- So far i found out that i cannot change the sound and mouse setting
- I cannot uninstall program
- i cannot change my anti-virus setting

Question 1:
- Are the above is what is supposed to happen when using standard Administrator setting?

If no:
- Should I consider Vista repair or clean re-install?

If yes:
- I would like to have UAC security but with true Administrator access. Is this possible? If so, should I consider enable the built-in Administrator and set-up password?

Many thanks

Answer:User Account Control (UAC) issues

Hello Ymi7, and welcome to Vista Forums.

With those issues, you might consider doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before these problems or a repair install.

The built-in administrator account is the only one with true full power, but UAC is not active in this account. A standard administrator account has the same power, but you just have to approve an administrator action with UAC first before it is allowed.

Hope this helps some,

Wow, what a frustrating day!

Well my problems started when I began setting up a multi-room Sonos audio system. The system is great but the software just would not let me add a shared folder to create the library. Whilst I was installing the software, it tried to do a couple of things to windows to enable the installation. E.g. Set sleep time to never and add it as an approved programme through the fire wall. Neither of these worked and I had to do them myself before the installation would carry on.

So I rang Sonos support who tried a few things and then we discovered that although I had administrator rights on that account I could not do quite a few things. For example if I go into control panel.user accounts I cannot add or remove a user account, I cannot change my user type or name etc etc When I click these links nothing happens.

It seems there is some kind of user account corruption going on. I created a new account & that works fine with both the Sonos software and I can also make the account changes I would expect. It seems a massive job though to transfer all my settings from one account to another.

Any clues as I am out of inspiration.

Answer:User Account Sharing Issues

If you're using the 32-bit version, Windows Update provides a fix for the permissions problem.

If that doesn't apply,

Right-click on the drive letter, choose properties, click the Security tab, , click the Edit button, select your username in the list and check the Full Control checkbox.

I built a new PC to be used primarily for gaming purposes, so I installed Windows 8 Pro onto 128GB SSD. I wanted to move my User profile to my HDD, and followed the directions posted here: User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

after doing this and exiting Audit mode, Windows acted as if I had were installing the OS and wanted a product key. I skipped this step, went through the configuration, but when I used my email for my Windows account, it says that a user is already using that account on my PC. Obviously, because I had been using my computer earlier today. So since it knows there is a user with that account, why can't I access it when I start my computer? A friend of mine says I may have installed Windows twice on accident, but he isn't sure. Help would be much appreciated.
