Ability lost access administrator account and create files (using Windows 7)

Running windows 7, administrator account has disappeared and cannot access (it is listed as a user with permissions (mine has changed and he's been a user listed as S-1-5-21-3964978265-1859684145-9075597-1000 and finally managed to remove it (I think)) and the ability to create folders, or by clicking right in applications.)

Clicked on what I thought, it was a reliable site, the message says that I had to update Flash to enter the site, after a large number of ads downloaded and changed my browser; I just uninstalled from this time, installed backup of the previous day and blocked unwanted applications through my Norton.

I don't know if there is something else that is affected.  How can I fix it, my level of knowledge is limited on what I should and should not on my system.

You can probably fix your problem by using the system restore. Here's how it works:
1. keep tapping F8 during the first phase of startup.
2. select Repair from the menu.
3. Select an administrator account, and then enter its password.
4. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
5. set Windows to a point before this problem occurred.
6. plan in advance and create, test and document a spare, even admin account that you have a spare House key.

    I desperately need to merge two administrative accounts on my laptop - using XP and NOT windows 7 (so there is no transfer Assistant). I need to transfer all of the OLD admin. account in the NEW Admin account.

    For the full backup used Carbonite - due erase hard drive and reinstall XP - carbonite cust. veeeeery slooooow service and I had to use the laptop for the preparatory work.  When the backup has been restored, he implemented the administrative account of origin, besides I have created a new.  Now, most of the files are under the old administrative account, and I need to move the OLD files in the NEW Admin account.

    Would sincerely appreciate your very specific instructions? ... step by step, if possible? Not quite a prolific technician, but no slouch, not more.

    Thank you very much!

    You can't really merge two accounts. You can copy data from one account to the other. Folder options > view tab > check "Show hidden files". Then go to:

    c:\Documents and Settings\name of the old account and copy the files to My Documents, desktop, Favorites in folders in your new user account. When you have all your stuff, you can delete the old user account from the control panel > user accounts. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • I got 3 accounts, two were administrator accounts and a regular user account. Now, I find that both my administrator accounts have become odinary leaving me without any user accounts administrator account. How can I now get an administrator account?

    I don't remember doing anything that could have caused this problem.

    Enable the built-in Administrator account log in, make your changes to user accounts, search for malware to be proactive.


    First try a system restore to when things worked. If this fixes things, very well. If this is not the case, try to start in Safe Mode, because the normally disabled built-in Administrator account can be activated if no other administrative user is available on the system. This, by repeatedly pressing the F8 key as the computer starts. That you will get to the diagnostic menu where you can use your arrow key to select Mode without failure. If the built-in administrator is enabled, you will see an icon for it on the Welcome screen.

    If the above does not work:

    If you have an installation of Vista DVD (not a recovery DVDs), you can start the system with it. Select the default language, then select "repair your computer". Then select "Command Prompt". At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / Active: Yes [Enter]

    Remove the installation DVD and reboot the system in normal Mode. You will see an icon for the administrator on the Welcome screen. If you do not have a Vista installation DVD (only have a recovery disk), the computer mftr. may have given you the option to repair the system Windows Vista (not a system recovery!) in the menu diagnosis. This menu of diagnosis is the same one where you can choose Safe Mode. If this isn't the case, you can do a repair file Vista bootable DVD in this link:


    Note: All the Neosmart recovery disk downloads are torrent files. There is a good explanation of the torrent on the site Web of Neosmart files. You will need a torrent asmuTorrent client to get the files. Torrent client will download the .iso file with which to create the bootable DVD. You will need the third burning like Nero, Roxio or freeImgBurn software to burn the image .iso image file, not in the form of data.

    After net user, remove the bootable CD and restart the computer. You will now see an icon for administrator on the Welcome screen. Connect to this account. After getting things sorted, disable the administrator built-in yet for security reasons * after * creation of a user and administrative per the recommendations below.

    Start Orb > Search box > type: cmd
    When cmd appears in the above results, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator" [OK]. Now, you will get the command prompt. At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / active: No. [Enter]

    Exit the command prompt.

    General recommendations for creating users in Vista:

    You absolutely don't want to have only one user account. As XP and all the other modern operating systems, Vista is a multi-user system with integrated system of accounts as default Administrator and comments. These accounts should be left alone because they are part of the structure of the operating system.

    In particular, you do not want one account user with administrative privileges on Vista because the administrator account integrated (normally only used in emergencies) is disabled by default. If you use as an administrator for your daily work, and this account is corrupt, things will be difficult.  It is not impossible to activate the built-in administrator to rescue things, but there may be more that you want to do. Better not to put you in a bad situation at first.

    The user account that is for your daily work must be a Standard user, with the extra administrative user (call it something like 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar) only it for elevation purposes. As a user Standard is recommended for security reasons and will help protect your computer against infections. After you have created "CompAdmin", connect to it and change your normal user account Standard. Then log on to your regular account.

    How to recover the password lost for windows 7?

    How to recover the password lost for windows 7?

    While your application may very well be authentic, it could also be interpreted as a surreptitious attempt to bypass Windows security.

    The only recommended method to retrieve an administrative password is to login as another administrator account and reset the password to a known unknown. If the administrative passwords could be easily overcome, there would not be much point in them.

    It is in the terms of use and the Code of conduct of the responses of these forums to request or provide assistance to the cracking a password. Do not forget that you agreed to these and review if necessary.

    You can view the policy of Microsoft about lost or forgotten passwords (KB189126) for more information on what resources are available to you.

    The only advice I can offer you is either log - on another user with administrator privileges and reset your password to a new, use the password reset disk that you created when you set up your account, start guessing what the password could possibly be or reinstall Windows by default.

  • Local administrator account and issue of local Group Policy permissions problem.

    I think preventing the admin account to remove or install devices.  This causes a problem.  Looks like it's AD GP as is grayed out and I can't add locally.  The network team claim there is no GPs AD to limit the admin account local they know of.

    Also, I try to use the process on the machine monitor, but who needs administrator rights and he repeats that the local administrator account is not a member of the Administrators group, but it is.

    Any ideas?  Even if it's just he Process Monitor bit setting?

    And looking at the photo can someone explain which means that icon next to load and unload device drivers.  It is different from the others and think that it is linked, may be trying to tell me that it is a strategy of AD Group.

    I talked to the networks, they said there is not together AD GP for this.  I used the local administrator account to create a new local administrator account and put it in the Administrators group.  Connected to it and it also has the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    The symbol, that you reference indicates that the setting has been locked by group policy and is not editable.  When I saw it in the past, the only way I could replace, it is using "secedit".  For more information about this command:
