How to repair a registry on Windows XP Pro


The malware probably corrupted your profile. Log into Safe Mode as administrator by restarting the computer and tapping the F8 key until the menu comes up. Select Safe Mode and hit Enter. You should have the option to log in as administrator.

Once you're logged in, go to C:\documents and settings and find your profile folder (it will likely have your name on it). Rename it and add OLD to the end (ie: SmithOLD). While you're logged into safe mode, I would also run another malwarebytes scan as Safe Mode turns off additional services and applications that could be hiding malware. Once you're done reboot.

When Windows loads normally, you should be able to log in as yourself and Windows will create a brand new profile. Your desktop, favorites, and icons will be gone but don't worry. Once you're logged in, go back to C:\documents and settings\ and the OLD folder. All of your old desktop files, favorites, and My Documents will be in there.

An error message informs you that you cannot move or rename the Documents and...


To specify a different folder for the Documents and Settings folder during installation, follow these steps: 1. Run Winnt.exe or Winnt32.exe by using the /unattend option, and then insert the following entry into the Unattend.txt file, where z:\foldername is the path and folder name you want: [GuiUNattended]
ProfilesDir = z:\foldername 2. Install Windows. The path that you included in the Unattend.txt file is used instead of the default Documents and Settings folder.NOTE: This method does not relocate any key Windows components. Use this method if you require only user-specific data to be moved.

After you install Windows XP, to specify a folder other than the Documents and Settings folder for a particular user's data, follow these steps: 1. Identify the user's profile path. You can identify the profile path either by user security ID (SID) or by user path settings. The user SID method is preferred. To identify the user's profile path by the user SID loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Use the Getsid tool from the Windows Server Resource Kit to obtain the SID. At a command prompt, use the following syntax: getsid \\ComputerName UserName \\ComputerName UserNameFor example: getsid \\windowsxp joedoe \\windowsxp joedoeThe results look something like this: = The SID for account WINDOWSXP\joedoe is S-1-5-21-1708537768-1993962763-1957994488-1003 b. After you obtain the user SID, start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe), and then select the user SID under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList To identify the profile path by the user's path settings loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Log on to the computer as the user, and then type set at a command prompt. Note the setting for UserProfile, and then quit the command prompt. b. Log on to the computer as an administrator. c. Use Registry Editor to add the UserProfile setting to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList d. Click the registry key, and then click Find on the Edit menu. e. In the Find box, type the value of the UserProfile setting, and then click Find Next. 2. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList registry key, change the ProfileImagePath value to reflect the new path that you want to use, and then quit Registry Editor. 3. Log on to the computer as the user, type set at a command prompt, and then verify that the path has changed.
Moving the entire folder loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); NOTE: This method does relocate key Windows components. Use this method only if you require the Documents and Settings folder to be moved or renamed and you cannot use the Unattend.txt file to change the name during installation.

To specify a different folder for the entire Documents and Settings folder, including key system components, follow these steps: 1. Log on to the computer as an administrator, and then create a new folder. 2. In the current Documents and Settings folder, on the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide extensions for known file types and Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check boxes. 4. Click OK. 5. Click and drag all the folders in the Documents and Settings folder to copy them to the new folder, except for the folder for the currently logged-on administrator. 6. Log off and then log back on, using a different administrator account from the one that you just logged off from. 7. Open the Documents and Settings folder again, and then copy the profile of the administrator that you just logged off from to the new folder. This extra step is needed because you cannot copy the profile of the account that is currently logged on. 8. Log off the computer, and then again log on to the computer as an administrator. 9. Start Registry Editor, and then click Find on the Edit menu. 10. Type documents and settings, and then click Find Next. 11. For every registry key or value that contains the original path, replace the value data or rename the value or registry key to the new path.IMPORTANT: You must complete this change in the registry for every instance of the original path, or your computer may not start. It is imperative that you update all registry keys and values with the new path.

12. Restart the computer. You can now safely remove the original Documents and Settings folder.

Whenever I open my microsoft word documents and try to edit it or even start a new document, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.


An evil virus has set an ACL (Access Control List) list entry prohibiting you from modifying your own documents - or changed the ownership of your documents to another account on the system.

If the computer upon which your documents reside is not yours, consult the system administrator, who may have reset file or directory permissions. If the PC is your personal box - virus/trojan horse/worm/rootkit/malware/spyware residual damage.

To repair ACL damage, use MSDOS command cacls. How:
1) login as "Administrator"
2. START>RUN> cacls
or bring up an MSDOS command prompt (from cmd.exe) and type in cacls /?

Anyway, the problem described above is a OS/System problem.
The only way I can think of that MSWord would prohibit modifying your own docs is that
you recently upgraded MSWord to Office2010, and your docs were created with an old, incompatible version of MSWord - but doesn't Microsoft have backward compatibility for
older .DOC files?

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.
