Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

2 Answers

Multi-user IE7 Our Family PC is always on and all four of us are always logged in. Unfortunately only the first one to bring up IE7 can use it. If he or she leaves it up and we switch users, it won't come up in the other user. No error message either, it just hangs. If the first user quits IE7 the second user can bring it up but that's a HUGE pain. Running windos XP Media Center, on a 2GB/500GB Dell XPS 400. Already reloaded IE 7 from scratch.

Re: Multi-user IE7

If it is a beta release of IE7, try to update with the latest patch. Download the latest version from Also try a different browser and see if the issue remains the same or not. Try and Disable Antivirus/Firewalls and check if it helps.Also run a Malaware/Spyware check. Hope it works out for you.

Achieving a Safe and Secure Environment

Well you bring up a good question that has many avenues to look at and it all depends on your operating system, Windows, Linux, Unix, MacOSX? The first thing to do on any OS you might have is secure the administrative rights of the computer. Always have user name a passwords set. Windows when installed automatically makes the first user the administrator with full access rights to the computer all the time. BAD Idea. Always create a standard user and log in as that user. When administrative rights are needed have the OS ask for the Admin password so that when that process is complete admin access is revoked. Under all OS's besides Windows this is the norm. If you are using Windows make sure that you use a quality, proven anti-virus software, surf the internet wisely and pay attention to what you download. Windows security is Lame to say the least and takes much more diligence keeping it secure. Do lots of reading on security for OS's to improve your knowledge of the do's and don'ts. A secure environment is only as good as the knowledge the user has to keep it secure.

My power glitched, now when i try to log in to windows my password isn't recognized. i've tried everything.

By default xp has an unsecured adminstrator account. At the logon screen press Ctl + Alt + Del twice to bring up the standard logon dialogue box. Type the username "administrator" without the quotation marks. Leave the password empty. Press ok to login. Hopefully that gets you logged on to windows so you can reset your user account

OK. You need to start the pc in Safe Mode (press F8 before the Windows logo appears), and go to Control Panel>User Accounts, click on the account with the password, and select Delete password.

Hi Dolly
You are always welcome :-)
The add/create user process is as follows;
- first you log on to the PDC as Administrator and add a user. Then log off the PDC and log on to the File/Print server and from Home directory add a new folder for the user making sure the folder is shared and the new user has authority granted.

It’s pretty late here in Denmark, so I´ll bee of to bed, and won´t be online again within the next 8 - 10 hours.

Don´t forget to vote before you leave :-)

Windows 2003 Logon script

create a user folder on the server.
create each login folder "PC0001","pc0002", etc............
set the user rights by right click on the folder and select properties. (you need all users name. otherwise, one of more people will not have their file on the server.
now, you need all fo the users that will be using that particular PC login, in order to create the user profile. unless you have one generic login.
right click on "my document" on each of the local machine.
redirect the path under the general tab. to where you wan the files to go to.
that will place the file where you want them to be. like you say it is machine direct, not user direct. i you want user direct, in another words, you want the user files to go to the server regardless where the user is, then you need a Domain Controller and Active Directory setup.
