Access to my files on a nonadministrator account administration user account.

Under windows Vista. I have an administrator user account on my machine, but it does not appear in my list of 'change user '. I can only connect to my computer via a nonadministrator account. I'm trying to access the administrator account, but it is apparently requires a smart card is inserted. If only I could get the ADMIN user account to appear in my user account to log on, I could enter my password.


You can try to fix it with Safe Mode - repeatedly press F8 as you bootup. The ADMIN account in trunk
Mode has no default password (unless someone has changed the password so it should be available).

Some programs such as the updated Google (if you added the toolbar Google, Chrome or Google Earth)
has been known to cause this problem.

How to enable or disable the real built-in Administrator account in Vista

Use the Admin account hidden to lower your user account APPLY / OK then wear again to
ADMIN. This allows clear of corruption. Do the same for other accounts if necessary after the
above message.

You can use the hidden - administrator account to make another account as an ADMINISTRATOR with your same
password (or two with the same password) use a test or difficulty to another.

You can run the Admin account hidden from the prompt by if necessary.

This tells you how to access the System Recovery Options and/or a Vista DVD

If you cannot access your old account, you can still use an Admin to migrate to another (don't forget
always leave to an Admin who is not used except for testing and difficulty account).

  • Limited to issues of access to user files: cannot open files C:\Docs and directory All Users\... of limited account

    Developed an application, I am having trouble hosting different user accounts. In an attempt to debug, I created a user account on my XP development machine I've ever done before. Programming within this limited user account, I can test the existence of a file in the "C:\Docs and Users\etc all..." to see that there are, but I can't open it to read.

    How can I access the files for purposes of development while maintaining the limited account so I can test that the system works for all computers it willl be used on and all their different configurations of users? Or perhaps, where can I find information on where and how to manage the application data, so I don't run into these issues? What I saw before me had to believe given to all users is available to all users!

    Thank you.

  • my user account is 'administrator', but am still denied access to the file I want to access.

    I click on certain folders or files to access and a window pops up saying: "access denied."  Nevertheless, I have a user 'administrator' account, so why would I refused access?  I'm really tired of Windows 7, doing so and would like a replacement that will allow me access to WHAT I want - after all, it's MY computer, not Microsoft!

    1. are you aware of any hardware or software changes, prior to the beginning of the question?
    2. is the computer connected to the domain?

    Method 1:

    You can also try to give permission to the files.

  • access to the files compressed after disk clean

    I have Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 SP3. Two nights ago, I ran Disk Clean Up and Defrag to improve speed. I used compress old files for the first time. Tonight I tried to access certain personal records and documents and they went. When I run a search for them, they are not accessible and are moved to the folder of My Documents and Settings or gone completely. I can only assume that this is due to the use "compress old files". How to access these compressed files?

    You say that you are missing a lot of files and folders...

    Compressed file always appears in a Windows search and will be in a default blue color.

    If you think the specific name of some of the files you are missing or part of the name, see if they find themselves in a search for Windows and if they do, where they are.  Adjust the search with more advanced options and tick the boxes in system folders search, search hidden files and folders, hidden files and folders, and search subfolders (this way it will look everywhere).

    Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the desktop, then the (Local Disk (C). assuming that XP is installed on your C drive

    Below, you should see the Documents and Settings folder, open then, and you will see a folder for each user on your system (and perhaps some that you do not recognize).  Each user has a folder under Documents and Settings.

    Double-click the folder associated with your user name (for example, Andrea) and you will see a My Documents folder that belongs to you.  Look in here and see what you can see if you understand how it works...  Look in my pictures, my videos, my music, etc and see if you see one of your items.

    Then go back up to the Documents and Settings folder and open the folder associated with the next user (even if you don't recognize it) and look in the Documents folder for this user (for example the Documents of Jose) and search there and see if you can locate your missing documents.  Repeat for all users folders Documents and see if you can find your stuff.

    I can't imagine what happened to your stuff, but thinking that perhaps your XP user profile has been corrupted somehow and when that happens, XP login with an account that works will record and you get connected, but this new account will have all the documents in it since they'll be in the Documents folder for another user whose profile corrupt (maybe).
    If this is the case, you can fix it, but you should see if you can find your stuff first.

    Anywho, use Windows Search to search for specific files or even wildcards as type names and see if you can determine if the files are actually missing or are just in other places when you are looking.

    I use the word "stuff" a lot today for a reason but that is my style of back.

  • Impossible to the configuration file of the access to the error in XP mode: "is client\users\administrator is not accessible.

    Original title: can not access the configuration file because I'm not the administrator, even if I'm the only person who uses this computer

    I bought Windows 7 Professional on a new computer, because a program that I use every day may run in XP mode.  Configure XP mode and when it asked for a password that I left it empty and press to enter.  When I try to enter in the file config on XP the message "is client\users\administrator is not accessible." You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.

    I downloaded the andxp of MS virtual pc mode because this 8 year and plu program will be run in this mode.  I copied the old computer config file and you want to replace the file loaded when I installed the program on the new computer.  Who will save me load all data files (more than 80) and not to recreate the data in these files that I changed. I installed the program from the original disc and it is implemented very well except for the config file.

    Hi Hugh Humphreys,

    Leave the password empty section and see if the XPMUSER can be accessed.

    Method 1: If the problem persists, you can try to access Windows XP Mode with the default account named "Administrator". This account appears when we get into Safe Mode. By default, there is no password for this account, and the password is determined when you set up the Windows XP Mode. We can use this account to reset the password of the other accounts password. To do this, follow these steps:

    (a) Firstly, disable the integration features.

    (b) restart Windows XP Mode. When the Boot Menu appears on startup, press F8. (Continue to press the F8 key until the Windows Startup menu is displayed.)

    (c) on the advanced Windows Menu of Options, select Safe Mode and press ENTER.

    (d) log in Windows by using the administrator account and the password.

    Note: The password is empty by default unless you already set a password.

    (e) after the connection mode safe, click on "Start", go to "run", type "nusrmgr.cpl" (without the quotes) and press ENTER.

    (f) choose the user you want to change and click 'reset password'. Set a new password.

    (g) click on "Advanced" tab, click on the button "Advanced".

    (h) click on "users". The choice of the user you want to edit in the right pane. It to the right and click on "Properties".

    (i) check the "password never expires". Click on 'OK'.

    (j) then exit the settings and restart Windows XP Mode to normal mode.

    Method 2: Please try following the steps for the computer to remember the credentials and do not ask the password to open each programs:

    (a) when he asks for a password, click Cancel. Without integration feature, you are allowed to log on with an account that does not have a password.

    (b) set a password for your current user.

    (c) click on tools on Windows Virtual PC, choose enable integration features.

    i. type the password, check the box "Remember my credentials" and click OK to open a session.

    II. after joining the domain, logon in XP mode with the local administrator account.

  • I can see other computers on a network of peer to peer windows XP but cannot access their shared files and the shared printer.

    I can see other computers on a network of peer to peer windows XP but cannot access their shared files and the shared printer. The computers are connected by a switch, fixed IP addresses that are correctly configured and point to a DNS server outside the network. When I try to open the icon for one of the computers, he asked for credentials. I try to type the user name for the computer that is sharing the resource and the password. It is the user account whose computer is loged on and belongs to the Administrators group. for example: user name (Computer1\username) password (password). It does not work. The Windows Firewall is disabled on all computers. It worked well there 2 days. I can't find anything wrong with the network settings. Does anyone have a solution? Thank you.

    If the portion of the machine has activated - Simple file sharing (i.e. it is XP Home or it is XP Pro with Simple (default) file sharing) - while all file sharing connections authenticate as user 'guest '.  It will not matter what username / password you provide, it will attempt to authenticate as 'guest '.  If the guest user has received a password or the guest account is not active, you will experience the symptoms you describe.

    If the serving machine running XP Pro and Simple file sharing is disabled, then you should be able to connect by specifying the user as computer\user and the password to connect.  To turn off Simple file sharing:

  • Windows 8.1 - permissions of files - do not have access to the files since the abolishment of all permissions except for the system and my own useraccount.

    I had to put in my computer to the repairshop, so I changed the filepermissions on a large foldertree to all permissions for my own useraccount and all permissions for the SYSTEM account, but deliberately deleted the permissions on this folder to 'Administrator', since the repairshop started getting their own account and I had to make that account a member of the Administrators group.

    Now I'm stuck with a bunch of folders and files (strangely, this didn't happen to * all * files under the folder in question) that I can't read or delete, when logged in as the useraccount with all permissions on the files. I've tried everything, and while I had to click on a dialog box explore asking me to provide administrator access to subfolders in the folder in question, some folders becomes fully accessible (possibly), but some button blown up a "Try again" in explore a dialog box - which has sometimes worked but for some records * didn't * work to resume the TP to my own files.

    I want to know how I can find the full access to these files.

    If your own username is a member of the Administrators group, then all you have applied to this group is for you also.

    I would like to start by trying to change only the owner of the files to yourself.  Apply and when finished, close all.  Then go back and change only the permissions that should be easier now that you own on everything.
