You will need administrator privilages to be able to do this. You need to go to control panel>users and change your user account from power user to administrator. If you have not got administrator privilages to do this change then ask an administrator on your network to make this change for you.

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.

Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.


Try to create a new user account

1) Click on Start
2) Click on Control Panel
3) Click on Classic View on the left hand side.
4) Click on User Accounts
5) Click on Manager Other Accounts
6) Click on Create a New User Account
7) Type in the name of the new Account and select the user as administrator
8) Then click on Create Account.

The Account would be created successfully.

Log Off from your user account and login from the new user account that you have created.

To get all the settings from your old user account to the new account copy all the items from c:\users\old user account name to c:\users\new user account name.

Hey there; I couldn't install programs on my PC since I have no admin. previlage. How can I do that on my account? my PC is networked and network administred.


You can install programs on your PC ONLY with Administrator privileges!
It could be either by logging in as an administrator (or any other account with administrative privileges; Sometimes even Power User privileges is enough) OR right-clicking on the setup file of the program and choosing "Run as..." and specifying a suitable user account.
Other way will be cracking/resetting the Administrator's password - but I won't get into it... Anyway, it's probably set on a server and not in your local PC.

PS: You can ask your network administrator to grant you privileges as a local administrator (ie, only for your own PC) - if he agreed - that should solve your problem! :)

I could not do Map Network Drive from other pc to my Dell Inspiron 1501. It looks like security setting is violated. I got message saying 'c' is available but the user account that you are logged on with...


If you are using Window's XP or later the problem is probably the account you are logged into doesn't have "administrative access". You will have to log into the administrative account to make network changes.

If you are running Vista the default administrative account is hidden. To access it do the following: First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

Now type the following command :
net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)

You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.
Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no

The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.

I'm trying to adjust the power management options on my XP pro Compaq Presario. I can change the options when using my administrator account, but those changes don't seem to become effective for the other...


try setting the power management options in the BIOS(hardware based, access it by pressinfg DEL or F2 or F1 when booting,)

instead of using the windows feature.

settings once made as an admin in windows should be available for all users, else just leave the name for the user but upgrade the user status from power user or guest status to admin, enter changes, reboot, logon with old name, downgrade account from admin to user or whatsoever, that might do the trick...
good luck
