On the logon screen press ctrl+alt+delete 2 times then log on as administrator. You can then delete the account you do not need and create a new one.

Bought from someone else need to put my nane on it


You have to make 2 changes, One for the computer and one for the user. Here is how you do both:
CHANGE COMPUTER NAME:
  1. Right click my computer and select properties
  2. Select "Advanced System Settings" (skip if win xp)
  3. Select "Computer Name" tab
  4. click "change"
  5. Enter the name of your choice
CHANGE USER NAME:
You cannot change a user account by just changing the name. Just changing the name will make a cosmetic change only and not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile.

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

If you wish to log into your new, corrected account automatically, do this:Start Orb>Search box>type: netplwiz [enter]
Click on Continue (or supply an administrator's password) when prompted by UAC

Uncheck the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to automatically log on by clicking on the desired account to highlight it and then hit OK. Enter the correct password for that user account (if there is one) when prompted. Leave it blank if there is no password (null).

I acidently deleted the port magic in my emachine, and was unable to recover it from my recycle bin. what will i have to do to fix my computer or can I ?


I'm a little perplexed as to how you managed to delete an entire application by accident unless you were in the program files directory within windows explorer and deleted the folder. Are you sure you haven't just deleted the shortcut to the main application executable file? Anyway, you can download port magic free of charge, just search Google and make sure you download the right program as it appears to be a popular name for computer applications. All the best.

Desktop icons do not load when pc is restarted - something in the regestry was accidentially deleted. How can this be fixed? System restore didn't work. Thanks!


mate I had the exact same problem as you on one of my mates pc's but i managed to get it fixed.

It was due to a virus which was hidden really well away in the system folder. I suded AVG Anti Virusmag-glass_10x10.gif, Spybot Search and Destroy and also Ad Aware.. which found the file.. and quarantined it.. then I just deleted the file thru explorer.. and ran these three again .... then restarted and hey presto all was ok !

My mate already had AV Software on his machine - he just hadnt updated it hence why this one got in, which effects the log in process.

hope this helps

Icons freezing after computer starts up


I think your account might be corrupt, and should probably be deleted. I would highly recommend backing up your data to an external hard drive or create a temporary folder on your C drive, then create a new user account through the control panel. Once this is done, log off of the current account, login to the new account. Locate the icon titled My Computer. Right-click the icon and choose Properties. Look for the tab titled Advanced- click it. Midway down under User Profiles there should be a button titled Settings- click it. IN the list that populates with the user accounts (profiles) stored on your machine, highlight the account that you were just previously logged into (the original account that you were experiencing problems with). Once the old account name is selected, choose the button titled delete. Now, you can restart and log back in. This should put you back at a ready state. It will also resolve your problem if spyware was to blame for your inital problems. Let me know.
