I have a problem with a missing on the computer user account.

Original title: problem getting back to the original account admin user

Since the computer was new, I didn't have that one user account and didn't need a user to logon screen, when it opened to that and the only active user account. Fast forward 6 months that I had a problem with a windows installation file deleted and in order to get a program running I had to add a user account for the new installation of the user files. That part worked, but when I disconnected and tried to return to my original owner account there was only the new account on the logon screen my original account wasn't there. My files for this user account are still there in C: User but I can't find a way to get there.

Googleing this problem I saw things about problems with the accounts being listed as AccueilCompte, or administrator, but it did get me anywhere, the only difference I've seen after going through all that I saw in Win7 Home Premium, which had to do with user accounts, it is that my original account was registered in a field as 'owner '. I don't know if it's part of the problem or not. How can I return to my original account and why isn't she appear on the opening screen of session or user accounts?

Then, go to my computer and performed an analysis seems to indicate that my license was expired. Then I was informed that if I paid them £150 they would renew my license from microsoft.

When they asked for payment that I noticed that it was the Bank of bogoda in the Qatar the male became furious with my constant question and I then became suspicious and disconnected.

    There are a lot of options built into Windows to help you out of this situation:

    • Log on to your account admin to spare, and then reset the password for your existing account (works only if you set up an alternative admin account).
    • Log in as administrator mode without failure, then reset the password for your existing account (the password is usually empty).
    • Insert your flash drive USB with the password key file (only works if you have taken the time to create such a key file).
    • Use the password indicator (works only if you have created an index and it is up-to-date)

  • I have a problem with removing programs from the childs account.

    Original title: how to remove programs from my childs account?  He said that you are not allowed (as it should), but does not other options.

    I was cleaning my sons account and could not uninstall or remove most of the things.

    Its been a problem since I bought this new computer.   Some programs such as Adobe Flash, Chrome, etc. installed on my account, but not on other accounts.       They must be installed on each user account if they choose to use ie: Chrome, Adobe, Java etc.
    When Adobe Flash is installed for IE it is installed only on the user account that is not installed on the computer. So basically 3 accounts 3 downloads.
    Makes no sense.   However, some programs install to all accounts.
    When I uninstall a program from an admin account it does uninstall not other accounts 2 user.
    Logging into his account, I can't remove or uninstall.   I don't really want to delete the entire account.
    How can I accomplish this?
    Thanks, Denise

    Programs may vary in how they handle the installation and the removal of several accounts.
    I suggest to uninstall those that are a problem, temporarily change the account of the child to the administrator, connect you and make uninstalling and then change it back.   Not an elegant solution, but it should work.

  • Problem with MDT 2012 on the computer.

    Hello guys,.

    We had some problems with deployment workbench. I'm stuck since 2 weeks and I have no ideas.

    So, we have already a precedent of deployment, but it is old, and we wanted to make a new one, in order to really understand all stages of the construction of a deployment.

    So we created a PXE boot, who works there.

    The thing is when we start the installation, Windows Setup is fine, so I run certain applications (Microsoft Office, 7zip, Adobe Reader, Flash Player, Chrome, etc.).

    To explain, I added applications with command lines in the workbench, then I made a bundle with them. In the task sequence, I install the bundle.

    We get the 1632 error code, which seems to be related to the temporary folder. He says it's full or inaccessible.

    So I tried different things, I read that it was possible that the temp folder has been locked by another plant which may have gone wrong. So I took away from facilities that were not going very well.

    It worked once, then it still make me error codes 1632.

    I disabled the step "Install applications" in the sequence of tasks, which does nothing for me. (That I created the facility overall.)

    My boss has the idea to disable GPOS that install stuff, so now I try it.

  • Problems with Testversion popup on a licensed user account / need help!

    Hi guys,.

    I use the creative cloud since over a year and I'm fine with the whole system, but I have a problem that comes up for a few days...


    First of all to say: I have the Master Suite (maximum) on CC set.

    The problem I see is that the system asks a couple of times to concede anything, anytime - 5 times to date even without a "reboot of the PC" there are 2 weeks - CC Adobe asked to 'log in '.

    which is very penetration and boring for me... Is a fix for this either possible or maybe if an error is on my page (I can't imagine, but I am open to any suggestion).

    The big problem is that it is not really easy to use because the PC is totally secure and so I do not know why it must be so "complicated". Thanks for every help on this!

    See you soon.
