Initially, I created an administrator account on new computer dell laptop. I created another account to administrator subsequently and deliberately deleted the old user account without keeping the files. But now, I noticed that I lost my important files and folder with photos etc please help me to restore my account like administaor and its files as well. window 7 Home Basic operating system.

Yes. I can see the folder "satya".

OK, now you can try this to restore your lost files:

  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. Log in under another account admin as "satya".
  3. Open Windows Explorer.
  4. Navigate to the c:\Users folder.
  5. Right click on the folder "satya".
  6. Click "restore the previous version.
  7. Follow the prompts.

  • Administrator user accounts: how to move my administrator account to the elevated privileges?

    How to upgrade my account administrator high?

    There is no 'high' administrator account (except perhaps the top and you should never use for day-to-day administrative tasks - activate only when there is NO other choice).  You can have special rights granted in a standard user, but an administrator has all.  An administrator in Vista is not all rights and access as we did in XP and that is just the way Vista was designed - it's more control over permissions.

    What specifically do you want to do that you can't because you don't are not "high"?

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    HI ALL =)

    I tried to make an account administrator for my other half... I did okay but unfortunately when I created the account it automatically 'deactivated' somehow my administrator account and is no longer presents itself as an option "connect". I'm a photography student and I'm panicking a little bit because all my photos were in this account and I do not know how to get back in it, even though I'm pretty sure it's still there somewhere so frustrated, someone please help, please


    Apparently, you have XP Pro or Media Center and have been using the account administrator for your daily work. XP behave exactly as expected; When there is only the built-in system administrator and a second administrative account is made, the built-in administrator becomes hidden because it is not really intended to be used. It is there for emergency situations. However, since you use it you might as well continue. Just make you a third administrative account in special edition. Call it 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar and do not use it. Save it where daily accounts are alter so you can go back in the system (I hope).

  • Problem with the administrator user account

    When I connect to my administrator user account a Windows Sidebar message immediately rises:

    "Settings.ini is being used by another process. Close the other program, and then click Retry, or click Cancel to exit sidebar. »

    The problem is that there is no other program to close so I click on no to cancel. There is also a message from Catalyst Control Centre (program of ATI technology video card) that comes immediately after the message of the sidebar:

    "The host application has stopped working a problem caused the program blocking works correctly." Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. »

    I click Close Program, but no notice is. Try using Windows, I get the message "help topic is not found." I tried the system information (msinfo32.exe) and get the message "cannot collect information cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software.» Management of Windows files may be displaced or missing. » !!!

    All the above problem ONLY happens in the administrator user account. Both regular user accounts work fine. Windows help works very well, information system works very well!

    I'd appreciate any help to solve this problem of crazy.


    If you "move" the files/folders to PUBLIC folders, you can then access them when you are in the new admin account and then you can place them in your personal folders.
    If you do not Move To and copy to options in your context menu, here is the tutorial to "help":

    When you have completed the tutorial, try this...
    Right click on any folder/file > click Move To > scroll to the destination where will be moved to the folder/file > click on move.
    That's all. The file/folder is moved.

    Public folders are accessible to all user accounts on the computer.

  • Need permissions in Win 7 to take possession of the corrupt administrator (user) account

    I have a corrupt administrator user account that is only available in safe mode, at the command prompt.  I created another user account that gives me the Windows interface and I'm now trying to "own the administrator account to copy my files to my new user account."

    I am not able to access or change anything from anywhere or management; (Registry, other user accounts, other folders or files, properties or fields etc.) due to the restrictions on my PC.  I tried to use the takeown.exe tool, but I'm not sure what should be entered in the command line.  I read on the parameters to TO, but do not seem to get any results.

    Your advice is appreciated... Thank you!

    Since you were using the command prompt window when you created the new user, I just assumed you have made using the command:

    NET user newuser * / add

    where 'newuser' is the name of the new user?

    Did you also give this privilege to administrator newuser entering control:

    net localgroup administrators newuser / add

    While logged as administrator?

    It would be necessary to perform the actions that you are trying to do.

  • program user accounts: administrator user account

    I created a user not knowing account is the user account administrative and when a phone rang I confirmed the password without remembering what I wrote, it "administrator user account" to change / remove it completely. Because I can't even open the computer programs, it blocks everything.  (b) I've recreated a 'Standard user' account, but it doesn't have the same functions.  PLEASE HELP ITS URGENT

    You can change your password to something that you remember another administrative user account. If you had only an administrative user account and you have forgotten the password, all is not lost. You can then follow the general recommendations for implementing user accounts in Vista that I will give you at the end of this post.

    All this requires a certain level of computer skills. You know better and that take the machine to a competent local computer tech (not a type of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad place) is the best solution for you.

    If you have an installation of Vista DVD (not a recovery DVDs), you can start the system with it. Select the default language, then select "repair your computer". Then select "Command Prompt". At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / Active: Yes [press Enter]
    NET user [insert here the name of your user account] [insert the new password of user as 1234 here] [press Enter]

    [Note: do not enter the brackets!]

    Remove the installation DVD and restart the computer. Now, you will be able to connect to your user account by using the password that you set; for example, 1234.

    If you do not have a Vista installation DVD (only have a recovery disk), the computer mftr. may have given you the option to repair Vista (not a system recovery!) system in the diagnostic menu. This menu of diagnosis is the same one where you can choose Safe Mode. Get to this menu by repeatedly pressing the F8 key as the computer starts. If you do not have this option, you can make a bootable Vista file repair DVD in this link:

    Note: All the Neosmart recovery disk downloads are torrent files. There is a good explanation of the torrent on the site Web of Neosmart files. You will need a torrent as muTorrent client to get the files. Torrent client will download the .iso file with which to create the bootable DVD. You will need to use third-party burning software such as Nero, Roxio or the free ImgBurn ( ) to burn the image .iso image file, not in the form of data.

    Once you have fixed things, log on to the additional administrative account you will be made by the suggestions below and disable the administrator account integrated yet for security reasons:

    Start Orb > Search box > type: cmd
    When cmd appears in the above results, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator" [OK]. Now, you will get the command prompt. At the command prompt, type:

    NET user administrator / active: No. [Enter]

    Exit the command prompt.

    General recommendations for creating users in Vista:

    You absolutely don't want to have only one user account. As XP and all the other modern operating systems, Vista is a multi-user system with integrated system of accounts as default Administrator and comments. These accounts should be left alone because they are part of the structure of the operating system.

    In particular, you do not want one account user with administrative privileges on Vista because the administrator account integrated (normally only used in emergencies) is disabled by default. If you use as an administrator for your daily work, and this account is corrupt, things will be difficult.  It is not impossible to activate the built-in administrator to rescue things, but there may be more that you want to do. Better not to put you in a bad situation at first.

    The user account that is for your daily work must be a Standard user, with the extra administrative user (call it something like 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar) only it for elevation purposes. As a user Standard is recommended for security reasons and will help protect your computer against infections. After you have created "CompAdmin", connect to it and change your normal user account Standard. Then log on to your regular account.

    If you want to go directly to the desktop and ignore the Welcome screen with the icons of the user accounts, you can do this:

    Start Orb > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null). MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

    Hi GhettoBoy,

    How do you delete user accounts? Is it just C:\Dosument and settings users or accounts under the control panel? If you don't want to keep all these account data, you can try to delete the profile of click Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> Advanced-> user profile and select the profile and remove. Also check under 'User accounts' in the control panel to remove the names of users.

    1. The computer is connected to the domain environment?

    It is not possible to install a program in the nonadministrator user profile. However, if you know the credentials (user name and password) of the administrator then, try the steps below to install the program under the non administrator user account.

    Right-click on the Setup file

    Select the second option "Run as Administrator" from the menu drop-down

    Now, enter the administrator user name and password which will allow you to install the package on the account.

    In case you do not have the administrator username and password you could get in contact with the administrator to install the software.
