Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Slow internet connection on one user only

My computer has two users.

When logged on to internet as User 1 (Administrator ) it is a speedy connect with instant downloads


When logged on to internet as User 2 (Guest) it takes nearly 5mins to connect to homepage and is too slow to be of use.

I am guessing this is a setting problem but am unable to find where I need to correct this?

Hi,
Check is the user u have logged in has the administrator rights.
Try to un-install the application from different user account.
or try to use some 3rd party uninstaller to uninstall the application.

I do not know who or what an administrator is how to contact them


That happens when you are running a user account that is not the administrator account. In many ways this is smart because trojans and viruses have the same trouble installing. In schools or office buildings where they want to control who installs what on the computers it makes less problems for an administrator to fix. In your case switch users and log into your administrator account in control panel see if you can give your usual user account administrator privileges, shut down administrator account and log into your usual account and see if it now has administrator privileges in the control panel/user accounts. If not then install software while logged in the administrator account but install for all users from now on. Or you can only use the administrator account and set it up the way you like it (like your regular user account)

Error 815


First you have to make sure you should have working internet connection. Error 815 mostly related to ISP side so suggest you to contact ISP first.
You can also try below steps if ISP says everything is fine.

If the connection can be established by using other device/system, please create a new administrator account on the Windows Vista machine to troubleshoot the issue:


1.Click Start > type user account and click the User Accounts control panel.

2.In the User Account control panel, click Manager another account.

3.Click Create a new account, type an account name > select Administrator and then click Create Account.

4.Logoff and logon with the new account and try to establish the connection to check if the issue persists.

Only one user account is connecting to the internet?


This problem is usually due to parental controls or user application privileges/ network privileges.
The account that can connect to the internet should be the "administrator". In "Control Panel" access "user accounts" and check the privileges. Enable full (or the ones you want) access. "Parental controls" will block internet connections, check to make sure this is disabled or the correct level is enabled.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.
