Spelling in corect on my user name Incredimam


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.

I purchase a used computer that was a part of a company domain. I removed it from the domain. I cannot login.


When you removed the computer form the domain, you can no longer login as a domain user. You need to know the login credentials of a local user of that machine. (Administrator, is almost always a username, ans you would need to know the password of that user. Thanks!

To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:
1. Open Control Panel.

3. Click on "Change the way users log on or off". If you are presented with a message saying "Fast User Switching cannot be used ... etc.", click Cancel.
4. On the "User Accounts" main window, check the option "Use the Welcome screen".
5. Click "Apply Options".
6. Exit the "User Accounts" applet & restart your computer.

This should restore back the way you used to log into the computer.

User account


Hi !

You may first check the selected options under Control Panel > User Accounts > Change the way users log on or off (the first option has to be selected so that user accounts are all shown on startup).

You can try to switch to that account using the start menu > Log Off > Switch Users after you have logged in to the admin profile.

Start Menu Picture Disappeared Suddenly


Turn the Welcome screen on or off It sounds as if you accidentally turned off the welcome screen. Here's how to turn that function on and off:



To turn the Welcome screen on or off
You must have a computer administrator account on a computer that is a member of a workgroup or is a stand-alone computer to turn on or turn off the Use the Welcome screen feature. Logging on at the Welcome screen is not available on computers that are members of a network domain.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifUser Accounts in Control Panel.
  2. Click Change the way users log on or off.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To specify that users log on to the computer using the Welcome screen, select the Use the Welcome screen check box. A user logs on to the computer by clicking his or her user account name on the Welcome screen. If a password is assigned to the account, the user is prompted to type it.
    • To specify that users log on to the computer without using the Welcome screen, clear the Use the Welcome screen check box. The Welcome screen will no longer appear when you start the computer. To log on to the computer, type your user name (and password, if you have one) in the standard Log On to Windows dialog box.
note.gif Notes
  • To open User Accounts, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
  • Fast User Switching is available only when the Welcome screen is turned on. For more information, click Related Topics.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Not able to log onto profile


Hi there
The operating system is damaged beyond repair, the virus2009 is a Win32 trojan virus which has ravaged the windows directory folder, whatever you try to do now nothing will work, the only option you have now is to recover the system with a recovery or windows installation CD/DVD this does mean you will loose all the data from c drive unless you plug it up to another computer as a slave and recover your data before reinstall.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Logging onto server/domain


Have I got this right. You want to prevent them from logging on to a particular pc without a username and password?
If the server is off the domain is not active to validate requests for authentication.
It might help me understand what you are trying to do if you tell me why you want this computer isolated as the solution I am thinking about may not be the right one. Is it in a public area or do you want to prevent guest users or some other reason.
Look forward to your next posting.

Logging on to server


You need to go into administrative tools and look for group policy.

In the local computer policy
Computer Configuration
Windows Settings > security settings > Local policies > user rights assignment. In the right hand pane find the policy for "Allow log on locally" Set the user accounts for those users which are allowed to log on interactively on the server. Be careful you dont lock the administrator account out.
Use in conjunction with the "Deny logon locally policy" if you need to.
Hope this helps
