  • How to transfer files & settings from the administrator account for the Standard user account

    I have a Standard user account. I use the administrator account and realized that was not a right thing to do. However, now I can't have one of the images or files. I thought that they would automatically be there, but it didn't work that way. Is it possible to transfer these items? Open to all suggestions. Thank you

  • At the login page, our administrator is the user can't find anywhere and the connection we have is a standard user. How can I get an active Admin in the standard user user?

    We tried to implement the standard user to have limited access to the computer so that when we have people over, now, I can't able to carry anything as an admin if I right click on the menu on the icons. I am also unable to install new programs. The console command does not work for me to do that either, net user administrator / Active: Yes, just gives me an error code.

    No luck. I tried to start in safe mode. The computer turns off automatically, and I had to make a fix to start. I now think I need to do a full reset, but did not have my vista copy from when I bought this computer. Is there a way to get a new copy without having to buy a new set of software?

    Call the manufacturer of your computer. Request a set of recovery disks. Total cost is minimal, and it's a set that you should / must have.

    The set allows to restore your computer.

    Sure, if you are able to back up files that you want to keep before launching the recovery disks.

  • No Option of account Type change under user ID-want to change of Admin for the Standard user

    Hi, we have a Vista Home Premium system.  One of the children has received this PC and they are as an administrator with no other users.  Later, I added myself as admin and wanted to change the children as a standard user account type, but there is no option to change account type under their username.  I don't want to change the names where I am the initial administrator and the new standard user are children because they already have a bunch of stuff under their original admin username.  ((1) why I do not see the option to change account type and 2) how to change their standard account type so I can use controls parents?  Thank you!

    I want to tell you that if the computer has 1 account only, it will be the default Administrator account and change the standard account type will be gray.

    However, you can create a new user account and set a new one as a standard account.

    See article:

  • Limit the control panel and IE for the Standard user account

    I'll set up a new computer for a 91 year old customer in a retirement home, who don't use the computer for e-mail and an occasional Wordpad document.  His son wants to put computer in place so that it cannot get to the Internet Explorer browser, or go to control panel, because he bumbles around the keyboard causing all sorts of problems requiring frequent service for me calls.

    The operating system is Windows Vista Home BASIC, so gpedit.msc is not installed.  I have activated the system administrator account for my use when I am called to repair the computer and set the Standard user to user account.  The problem is that the only way I found to disable IE and the Control Panel causes them be turned off in BOTH accounts.  I wish I could disable them ONLY in the user account.

    The only solution I found to disable the control panel is a registry hack in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current versionpolicies where I put a DWORD 32-bit "NoControlPanel" with a value of 1.  I tried to do that in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive, but it had no effect.  This kind of work, but there are two problems then; Mises_a_jour Windows 1) won't install and 2) when I have to go to work on the computer, I first change administrator user, then change the DWORD value to 0 and finally to restart the computer, causing additional assignments, lengthen my time at work.

    Second, the only solution I could find to disable IE was in the default protrams Panel, which disables the administrator as well.

    Can someone tell me if there is another way to achieve this, while IE and control panel are disabled only for the user?

    Change the security to the IE executable rights? Remove 'Users', while you keep the administrator rights.

    For control panel see 'Method Two' in this link:

    "creacontech" wrote in the new message: * e-mail address is removed from the privacy... *

    Thanks for your response, but will not solve problem of this "gentleman". The object is not so much to limit internet access, as it should restrict access to programs.  He is 91 years old, has small hands and types rapidly with two fingers, but made many mistakes.  Disability is before everything to prevent clikety snap everywhere, because he creates sort of a zillion copies shortcuts of the webpage on his desk, until everything hangs and I have to go a push up on his mess. The same reason applies to the Contorl Panel.  We don't want it to be able to get to the Panel "printers."  When a document will not be printed for a reason, he go, dummy click around and created a bunch of copies of the printer, with a gazillian of documents clogged up in the queue of the coil.  I had to cclear up to 100 documents from the spool on 50 copies printer queue.  It's really an economic problem for his son.

  • Howw can I use extensions I have installed as the admin for a standard user account? When I go on my Add ons under the standard user, no script is not an option. Thank you

    Hi, I'm using Vista and Firefox 3.6. I installed some popular addons such as no script and the web page of the trust for the admin account, but when I connect under the standard account with fewer rights, I do not have them available. The only way I can get to run is to right click and run as administrator which defeats the purpose to log on as a standard user. Thanks for any help you can provide.

To install the program later, click on save and download the file to install it on your computer. When you are ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.

      • If you install SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and Software Update Installation Wizard should appear automatically. If this wizard does not appear, click Start, double-click my computer, click on your CD or DVD drive and then click AutoPlay.

    2. In Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

    3. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

    4. Once the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  • The admin user doesn't have access to the Standard user account files

    OK, I'm lost.  It's crazy.

    After reading the reasons to do most of your work on/as a Standard user, I created a user account (quite a while) and have been using it since--and perhaps the way I did have this problem.

    If I remember correctly, this is how I did it.  I had a LOT of files under my old ID admin, so I created another Admin account and then replaced by former Admin account is a Standard user account.  I have been connected and makes every slot the user account Standard since then, with Windows poping a request my Admin password whenever he needed.

    Today, I needed to change a tax return of 2013 - and when I reloaded TurboTax last year and needed to get the State program, TurboTax wouldn't, claiming that I need to be logged in as an Admin user (I have not the popup asking my Admin password).

    OK, here's the problem.  When I have users to switch to my Admin account, after the passage, almost all the icons on my desktop disappear AND there are only a couple of files in my files of Documents Libraries\Documents\My.

    Everything to go.  I thought as an Admin user, I had access to everything.  How can I get all this stuff back (the icons on the desktop for example and other user account files, etc.)

    When I was logged in as an Admin user, it seemed that I could share files with other Useers - so I thought, Aha, that's how it works.  So I logged on my Standard user account - but the ability to share my files, etc. did not exist, at least as far as I can tell (that is, cannot find this option anywhere).

    If all goes well there is something simple that miss me that things work so that as an Admin user, I have access to other user accounts where - it is supposed to work, isn't.

    Obviously need help.  Thank you.  Ron in round rock

    In fact, I have nothing - as stated in the above comment, I could see all my files and folders User\ron

    -> This either means that the folder is already shared, or that UAC (User Account Control) is disabled on your PC. This isn't a good idea because it exposes your computer at serious risk.

    I can edit, delete, running back, I can't (or maybe since I am the only user on this machine, I should leave him alone).  Just curious as to what I did exactly.

    -> If you have shared with read/write access, you can create/edit/delete the files.

    And finally, as an Admin user, I have only 4 icons in the taskbar (IE, Chrome, Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer) - that doesn't sound right.

    -> You'll get exactly icons you placed here while it is logged on as admin user.

    And really Finally, with regard to the disappearance of all the icons on my desktop when logged in as Admin user.

    Each user has his own profile. Inside the profile, there is the user's desktop. Desktop shortcuts that are visible while connected as user A are not visible when you are logged on as user B because each user has his own office!

    There is one exception: most applications require at installation time if their shortcuts must be visible by all users. If you answer 'Yes', then the shortcuts will go into this common folder: C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
