  • How can know you if someone has consulted and used the default Administrator account in Vista?

    I was not aware that the default Administrator account is so easily accessible if there is no password on it. In my view, a standard user has accessed this and it seems that the computer is having a lot of problems now. Is there a way to tell? Needless to say I care that much personal info could acceded as well as commercial information.  Security, 3 administartors (users) appears in some of the boxes, and I only know 2 of them, myself and the default admin?  I'm a recruit of the computer and the other person is somewhat a geek so I could really use some help. I am the system administrator, but don't really know what to look for. I would really appreciate if some wiz could help me.

    Thank you

    Hello

    You can't find if someone has consulted and used the default Administrator account in Vista. You will need to set up a password so that no one will be able to access the admin account.

  • How can I read or use the unallocated Partition?

    My external hard drive has two partitions. We're "Healthy (primary partition)", the other is "unallocated".

    I can see health as a disc but not the unallocated partition. How can I read or use the unallocated Partition?

    When I right click on the partition menu popup are faded/not usable.

    You can create a partition in the unallocated in disk management space.

    Right-click on the unallocated space and create a partition.

    If you have a partition on the disk using all the space you need to set as GPT instead of MBR.  Windows will not accept a partition of about 2 GB max on a game of MBR disk.

  • How can I continue to use the serial number I already paid?

    . I have a student 2013 Adobe Suite, but when I download creative cloud on my new laptop, there is not even a prompt to enter the serial number? How can I continue to use the serial number I already paid?

    To continue to use the serial you paid for you simply continue using the software that the license has been purchased is valid for (which is all what you have bought in 2013).  Your Adobe Suite has no relationship with the creative cloud.  Your serial number is only valid for the product for which it was purchased.  If you want to use cloud products, you must purchase a subscription.

  • the hidden administrator account is hidden by default, must it be left enabled and protected by password?

    original title: Hidden Administrator

    Hi, the hidden administrator account is hidden by default, must it be left enabled and protected by password? or must it be left empty without password as default. It is advisable to use this every day as the previous version of windows that you are running as an administrator, or another account should be created?

    These two methods are the same and have the same effect and the same security protection, but which is better?

    If the built-in administrator should be enabled or disabled is really your choice.
    If you decide to keep activated:
    1. give it a password (make a written copy and not to lose).
    2. it MUST not be used on a daily basis.
    3. should your emergency backup Administrator account ONLY.
    4. you must create an account admin with you as an administrator.
    5. the choice is yours. Others will say that you must open a regular user account and use it for every day. If you agree, do.

  • Program runs in the hidden administrator account, but not the administrator account

    I have been using Altium Designer for about 5 months. One day, I tried Eun and got the error "dxp.exe has stopped working.  So, after trying a re-boot.  I have reinstalled the software.  At the end of installation, I get the message "the system administrator has set policies that prevent this facility." The installation then said that the installation has been completed successfully. I tried: unlock all files in the installation directory, run the installation as an administrator, the installation running on the hidden administrator account. Turn off UAC.

    The installation leaves me with a program which runs in hidden administrator but not nromal administrator.  Even if the install ation was made as normal anministrator.

    I am running Windows 7 Home premium, so the control of local security is not available.

    Thank you for your help ITKnowledge24.  Your post helped me to find parts of the program that I would never know that existed.

    It turns out that my problem was in two parts.  First what killed the software is primarily a print unrelated dirver.  (go figure)  Installation errors were caused because I downloaded the version recient most of the manufacturer's Web site.  When I reinstalled using the old version, the installation was without error.  The software starts to run correctly when the printer driver has been removed.  It seems that windows security was only a Kipper.
