Go to active directory - users and computers, set a home folder in the profile tab of the users options,

also if you go into the gpo manager (group policy object) and i think the option of folder redirection is under windows - administrative templates

to open the gpo go start -> run -> mmc

file -> add/remove snap-in and select the gpo editor you can set this to enforce, if you want to do specific users you will have to create a new security group and add the users into it, then select the options that you want them to have, you can even restrict specific operations when they are logged on from there.

hope thats ok for you, if you need clarification just ask

How to I hack into my brothers account on the same computer. I have a log in he has a log in and we are both Computer admins but I want to access his files. Win xp thanks


You can do it fairly easily but your brother will know his account has been broken into.

Not that this will only work if your account is admin Else you're wasting your time. Now go to control panel and put it in classic view where all the settings can be accessed via individual icons. Click on the User Accounts and it is pretty straight forward from there.

It can also be accessed by clicking on your profile photo you can see when you press Win logo key.



Just
click on the Manage another account from the sidebar, pick your brother's account and remove his password.

Next log out and you can log in to your brother's account. Again, he may not find it amusing so proceed at your own risk!

Cause of user profile not loading


The question is:

What causes a user profile not to be loaded in Windows domain based network?

the answer is:
there are probably 3 broad reasons for this,
1. the user corrupted their profile somehow, such as shutting down without logging off (hard power off)
2. the connection to the domain was lost ungracefully, and offline information was not copied entirely, causing a mismatch of some encrypted profile data, (effectingly corrupting again) and preventing the logon.
3. an unknown event took place between the last time the user sucessfully logged on, and this time where the profile is now not loading. this could be hardware related (faulty Hard disk), RAM parity errors( bad memory), a change to the user profile SID details on the domain controller or other domain change.

Usually the cause is not so much a problem, unless it consistantly reoccurs.

Fixing it however, in XP is fairly easy.
with an account with domain admin rights, just navigate to the UNC path "\\computername\c$\documents and settings" - note the name of the folder/user affected, and just .old their profile folder.
example, username is Philip. - you see in their c:\documents and settings\ folder the folder called Philip, rename it to philip.old or something else.

You have to ensure this is done while the user is logged off, as files in this folder will be in use otherwise. potentially useful to reboot the computer before navigating to the profile folder.

Network issue


Hello

This is an unusual error. Error Code 1236 - The network connection was aborted by the local system.

There is no single issue that causes this error code, so we need to verify all of the networking basics are covered and working.

1. Verify the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are fully entered and / or populated by the DHCP server. Click START, then RUN, type in CMD then click the OK button. Type IPCONFIG /ALL - verify the three fields all have valid info for your network.

2. Verify you can see the local network - including other computers and network devices. This will rule out the possibliity that this computer cannot see any network devices and not just the shared folders

3. Log the user out and have another user that can access the shared folders log into this comptuer and try to access the shares. The user profile could be corrupted and preventing the user from accessing the shared folders. IF the new user cannot access the shared folders, then it is the PC / OS causing the issue. IF they can access the shared folders, backup the original user's data, delete their profile and have them log in again to create a new profile.

It is always recommended to upgrade Windows XP to Service Pack 3 - unless you have a very specific program that will not run on SP3.

This sounds a lot like something has taken over administrative rights to your computer, and limiting your access to your own folders. Try running Malwarebytes anti-malware to see if you have a trojan, rootkit or malware on your PC then try this program called unlocker1.8.7 to see if it will unlock the folder and give you permission to open it.

I want to get my profile back


This can be a little easier than it sounds, but it takes a quite a few steps. The profile names only get extensions like .domainname or .thiscomputer if there is already a folder in the profile folder under the username. The easiest way to recover the original profile is to log in as another username with admin rights and follow these steps:

BE CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE ANYTHING YOU NEED!!! If in doubt MOVE to a backup location instead of deleting

Remove any "new" profiles under the same username

Delete (or move) the "new" profile folders, so that there are no folders in the profile folder under the username you want

rename the profile folder of the username you want to keep - i.e. rename it to "OldUsername"

logout and log in as the username you want

logout and log back in as your alternate admin user

look in the profiles folder, you should now see a folder with the original name corresponding to the original username folder you renamed. If that folder does not exist, something is not working right - you'll need to give me more information before I can tell you what.

copy the contents (make sure you have your view settings set to show all files, including system files) from the renamed profile folder (OldUsername if you used my suggestion) to the newly created profile folder. Overwrite anything that exists in the folder.

Logout and log back in as the desired username. All settings should be restored.

These steps are dependant on continuance of profile foldernames. The "new' Profile folder MUST be the EXACT name of the original. This is because many items in the USER.DAT (user hive of the registry) point to folders by name. If you don't get the foldername correct, the process will not work.

Windows Vista not accessing shared folders on network. It keeps asking to log onto network PC and keeps saying cannot log in when trying accounts on the network pc. Both PC's are on the same workgroup and...


This is a usuall problem when connecting Vista and XP, specially when your vista is a 64-bit and your XP is 32-bit. What you need to do is to manually map the folders on the vista by opening windows explorer and then clicking on Map network drive, you need to put in the exact folder location. Next thing is you need to add user not only activationg the allow access, you need to add the user on the shared folder, you are only using workgroups, unlike domain networks, you just have to give them permission.

WinNT PDC


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.

Server 2003 AD


Hello Dolly, and welcome to FixYa.
As I´m not sure if you want to make a folder for a Domain user or a Local user, so I´ll give you both.
Domain user:
Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the console tree, click Users.
In the Details pane, right-click the user account, and then click Properties.
In the Properties dialog box, click Profile.
Under the Home folder, type the folder information. To do this, follow these steps:
To assign a home folder on a network server, click Connect, and then specify a drive letter.
In the To box, type a path. This path can be any one of the following types:
Network path, for example: \\server\users\test
You can substitute username for the last subfolder in the path, for example: \\server\users\username
NOTE: server is the name of the file server housing the home folders, and users are the shared folder.
Click OK.

Want to give give security


All you have to do is go to the properties of the folder by highlighting the folder and pressing properties. Look for the Sharing tab and make sure it is set for sharing. There should be a security tab where you can add the users you want to use the file and what they can use the file for. These users must be in the server already. If there not in the server you have to add them. If they haven't logged into the domain (your server yet) they will be asked for a password. Otherwise you will have to create another user id and password for that folder.
