my laptop is divided into 2 profiles. How can I remove the 2 profiles without deleting the programs in profiles

I want to remove the 2 profiles that divides my laptop. I wish well for my laptop one without loseing computer programs that have been added. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2650


Here is an answer from another forum posted by Rick Rogers:

"There is no method of merging the accounts, simply choose one or.
others and save the data of the impeachment.

Start and connect to one you want to keep. Open Windows Explorer as
Administrator (click right/run as admin) and take ownership of files in
the other profile that you want to save (under your registered profile). You may need to go to start / Control Panel / folder
Options/display/and check the box to see hidden and system files to do (if you do not, you will not miss important information - in particular about your programs). Move the
files you want to put on your user profile. »

There are some files that you should not move - they are documented in the following article: (which is very close to what do you except that you are not from a user account fresh but one that already exists).

NOTE: Before removing the old profile, I would make absolutely sure all your data are moved and accessible, and that all your programs work correctly.  The time to solve a problem, if there is while you still have available data - not after it has been deleted.  Frankly, I'd let the old profile sitting there for a few weeks or more, just to be on the right side (if you have the space, and I suspect you do).

Here is more information about the permissions you need permissions in its own right and to take ownership of:

To view your permissions, right-click on the file/folder, click Properties, and check the Security tab.  Check the permissions you have by clicking on your user name (or group of users).  Here are the types of permissions, you may have:  You must be an administrator or owner to change the permissions (and sometimes, being an administrator or even an owner is not sufficient - there are ways to block access (even if a smart administrator knows these ways and can move them - but usually should not because they did not have access, usually for a very good reason).)  Here's how to change the permissions of folder under Vista:  To add take and the issuance of right of permissions and ownership in the right click menu (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:

To resolve this problem with folders, appropriating the files or the drive (as an administrator) and give you all the rights.  Right-click on the folder/drive, click Properties, click the Security tab and click on advanced and then click the owner tab.  Click on edit, and then click the name of the person you want to give to the property (you may need to add if it is not there--or maybe yourself). If you want that it applies to subfolders and files in this folder/drive, then check the box to replace the owner of subcontainers and objects, and click OK.  Back and now there is a new owner for files and folders/player who can change the required permissions.  You can change now switched to read-only (even if the main folder indicates that they are always read-only - you can access yourself as the owner).  You can keep them in read-only to other users, customers and administrators even (although they can support themselves and access, if they wish, and it is really not that you can do to stop it except protect the file with a password by using a 3rd party product.)  Here is more information on the ownership of a file or a folder:  To add take ownership in the menu of the right click (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

  • How can I remove the program FBDowloader from the computer?

    Original title: FBDowloader won't go away

    My computer has been infected with browser hijacker program, FBDowloader.  I uninstalled the program, and I ran Norton Power Eraser, MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, McAfee Security Scan and MSE, none of which can locate or remove it.  Power Eraser says that there is no rootkit virus.  Whenever I start my computer and open IE, I go to Tools - Internet Options, reset the home page of the default home page and change the Google search provider.  I then delete FBDownloader as a search engine option.  However, FBDownloader reappears whenever I restart my computer and I have to go through the process of deleting it again.  FBDownloader also appears in Google Chrome and Mozilla, and I've reset and delete there as well.  How can I get rid of this pest?

    I have not had this problem but a google found this - that can help you. Also another look of such post in the Startup tab in MSCONFIG and uncheck the box if his list here.

    As I say, I can't confirm this or otherwise, just found via google. Hope this helps (at least until the help of an expert)

    How can I remove "the folder/Users/user/to/mygame doesn't exist." Terminal. Rises every time I launch Terminal. I am a novice. Thank you very much.

    1. Please select from the menu bar Terminal

    ▹ terminal preferences... ▹ Profiles ▹ Shell

    If the run command box is checked, uncheck it or enter the command to run automatically (if any), each opening of a Terminal window. Note: this is not how you define a default shell.

    2. If step 1 does not resolve the problem, see below.

    Back up all data.


    New Shell command ▹

    in the Terminal menu bar. Uncheck the box marked

    Run the command inside a shell

    If it is enabled.

    Copy and paste the following line into the text box that appears, and then press return:

    /bin/mkdir disabled_shell_files

    Close the Terminal window that opens. Repeat with this line:

    /bin/mv .profile .bash_history .bash_profile .bashrc .inputrc disabled_shell_files

    History Shell and former initialization files will be saved in a directory named "disabled_shell_files" at the top level of your home directory. It is normal that some of these files do not exist, and therefore, you will get error "no file".

    Close the window and open a new test.

    You may already know that files with name starting in '. ' are not visible in the Finder by default. So, if you open the folder that you created in the Finder, it will appear as empty, even if it is not. If you need to recover a portion of the data in the files of the shell, use a shell such as nano-based text editor (1). Make sure that you're not recreating the problem. Otherwise, you can delete the folder.

    Hi, Malcolm

    For this model of laptop, it is quite complicated because the STRANGE is from both sides. First you must remove the small screw placed in the Middle near the coverage of memory in the lower corner of your laptop (also near the cooling rack). The STRANGE is also secured with small hook placed under the keyboard.

    At the right place of this small hook is not known but I know that it is placed somewhere under the keyboard. I don't really know what you need to do. Have you already tried to remove the keyboard?

    I have to be honest and it's not so easy to give instructions here because I don't know if you're familiar with the disassembly. I don't want damage you something on your laptop. Small error can ends with a broken plastic cover. Please be careful.
