Windows Vista Limited User issue

I have a limited account set up in Windows Vista that I have it auto login to. I run Comprise Technologies SAM (Smart Access Manager), but when I go to print, nothing happens. It's supposed to open a dialog and you click Print Now. When I log off the Windows user and log back in, it works fine. If I have Windows autologon as the Administrator account, SAM functions fine. Any ideas?

    If I change the limited user to administrator, I would not be able to do the security of the user properly since the computer will be used by the public. I could use SteadyState on it but then I'd have to turn off the feature that reminds the administrator to save changes.

Change the user account to administrator, to unlock privileges.
That should solve your problem, remember to restart the pc so changes are made in the registry

How do I lock my computer from my child without risking me not being able to get back in please? In fact I don't know how to lock my computer in any event.


You can create a Vista password recovery disk to reset your password. Follow this 5 easy steps:

1. Enter a computer that can link to Internet. Search "windows password recovery tool" in Google. Download and install the software on that computer.

2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.

3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.

4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to recover vista password.

5. Now login Windows and set a new password.

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

I can't download iTunes. I'm using windows vista.


Right click the iTunes install program and click "Run as an Administrator". This will give you full access. Letme know if this works!

EDIT:
What version of Vista are you running??? (eg Home Premium x86 or 64bit, etc.) and also, is your account a Limited or Administrator???

EDIT 2:
Also, have you installed Quicktime or iTunes ever before on your computer with Vista??? If you did, you have to login to the account that installed it before.

EDIT 3:
Vista is really weird with quicktime and iTunes., so basically your problem is that you have to be on the user name that installed quicktime, using the "Run as Administrator" option. Ive seen this before with Vista and it has to do with ownership permissions.

Limited User access will not open files in software program


boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)

Problem


If all access was removed from the system drive, the user can't login.

To limit a user in Windows XP, change their account to "Limited User". If there are specific folders you don't want them to access, you can right click on the folder, go to Sharing/Security and set the appropriate limitations on individual folders and their subfolders.
