Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

System Administrator Thanks for your suggestion. I tried what you sugested without success. Before I did the restoration I had two log-on profiles plus one for a guest. I now have only one and it is called Administrator on the log in window. It does not have a password space and once I log in the computer doesnt allow my administrative privilges. As for the control panel, I am unable to go into its properties because it isnt visible. When I attempt to fo into program access I geta a banner stating: (This operation has been cancelled due to ristrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.)

You're Welcome.

I wasn't suggesting you access Control Panel properties, but your start folders properties to add control panel back to it.

As for the user/Administrator account issue, you could try a system restore (I rarely if ever suggest this) to a date prior to the issue and that may get you back into control.

Also if no one else has had physical access to this computer? You may want to boot into Safe Mode (tapping F8 key on boot to key to the Windows boot option screen) and run a full virus scan as this issue doesn't seem likely unless it's viral in nature. Unless someone else has been messing around with it.

How to get computer off a tempory profile


which operating system ?

Every time that you log on to a Windows Vista-based computer that is connected to a domain, a temporary user profile is created.


When you log off the computer, the user profile is deleted.

This behavior usually occurs because the account that you use to log on to the computer is a member of one or more of the following groups:
•Guests
•Domain Guests

If this is a school/work computer then this is most likely the way the NetAdmin has set it up.

If this is your home computer then a temporary user profile is issued each time an error condition prevents the user's profile from loading.


You may encounter profile issues if you log on with a user in the Guests group.

You need to remove the user in question from the local Guests or "Domain guests" group and that should do it.

1. Click Start

2. Right click Computer and Select Manage

3. Select Local Users and Groups > Groups

4. Double click Guests

5. Check if the user that is having the issue is a member of the Guests group

6. If so, remove the user from the Guests group

7. Log off the workstation and log back on

8. Verify the profile is now local

Try following these steps and check if it helps:


Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.


Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully.

For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it.


Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.


a. Log on to the system by using an administrative user account other than the user account that is experiencing the problem.


b. Back up all data in the current users profile folder if the profile folder still exists, and then delete the profile folder. By default, the profile resides in the following location:

%SystemDrive%\Users\UserName


c. ClickStart, typeregedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

Collapse this imageExpand this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.


d. Locate the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList


e. Under the ProfileList subkey, delete the subkey that is named SID.bak.

Note SID is a placeholder for the security identifier (SID) of the user account that is experiencing the problem.


The SID.bak subkey should contain a ProfileImagePath registry entry that points to the original profile folder of the user account that is experiencing the problem.

f. Exit Registry Editor.

g. Log off the system.

h. Log on to the system again.

After you log on to the system, the profile folder is re-created

2. Shift to another administrator user, if you don't have one, please create a new administrator account and log in.


3. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings folder, backup the data of your original corrupted profile, then delete the corrupted profile and all the temp profiles.


4. Open Registry Editor (type "Regedit" without quotation mark in the start menu blank and open it), search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList, under the profileList subkey, delete the key named SID.bak.


5. Restart your computer; you will be able to log in the normal profile again.

  3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
  4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point (or the date you know when solitaire was working fine) in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.

    Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer.
  6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.

I hope this helped! If you need further assistance on how this process is done I will be more then happy to walk you through. Just let me know.

Xp logs on then logs off immediately on acer 5100


I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.

Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

Laptop doesn't normally start


This sounds like an operating system glitch. Enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8. Once in safe mode, log on as administrator and do a system restore to a point that you recall it allowing you to log onto your profile. This should cure it, if not, let me know and we'll try something else.
