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.

Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.


Try to create a new user account

1) Click on Start
2) Click on Control Panel
3) Click on Classic View on the left hand side.
4) Click on User Accounts
5) Click on Manager Other Accounts
6) Click on Create a New User Account
7) Type in the name of the new Account and select the user as administrator
8) Then click on Create Account.

The Account would be created successfully.

Log Off from your user account and login from the new user account that you have created.

To get all the settings from your old user account to the new account copy all the items from c:\users\old user account name to c:\users\new user account name.

I have changed a new password for my administrator account and foget the password, i can only log through the user account. pls help me with steps on how to reset the password and enter new one


Do you need to reset vista or xp users password? Ihas a little trick that dig it for you from tech-hack forums. The method is very easy to follow and doesn't require any complicated commands. The method is free to use and you don't need to pay hundreds of dollars for some utility for unlocking lost windows passwords. Just follow next simple steps:
First thing you need to do is to start command prompt or CMD. There is two ways to do that:
Press F8 when Windows XP start up (before windows xp logo - progress bar for loading) and choose "Save Mode Command prompt" option
If you are logged in: click on start -> Run, type "cmd" and press ENTER.
In command prompt window type command "net user" or "net users". You will see the list of users that are created on current running OS.
Type "net user" "user name" "*". You will see that windows will ask you to enter new password for that particular user account! No super user privileges needed. Just type new password two times and you are done.
Example of process: If the administrator username is "administrator" then command for changing its password will be: "net user administrator *".
Note: quotes (") in the post are just for highlighting the word.

Forgot administrator's password


Hi Reggie,

Please read the entire article before proceeding:

All administrator accounts are created equal, with equal
powers, except that the main adiminstrator account cannot
be deleted and it does not appear on the login (or users)
menu by default.

You do need an alternate administrator account to solve this
problem. You must login to a user account with administrative
privileges in order to access system resources, take ownership
of files and folders, and to change other people's passwords.
(including the built-in administrator account)

Otherwise, what would be the point of any security at all,
if you could bypass it at will.

If you can login to another account with administrator pri'vs,
then follow me. Otherwise you may have to pursue more difficult
options, as explained later.

1) Open up the control panel
2) Open up Administrative tools
3) Open up local security settings
4) Expand Local policies in the LHS folder tree

Check:
Accounts: Administrator Account Status = Enabled
Accounts: Rename Administrator Account = Administrator

this is to make sure that the admin account is enabled,
and has not been renamed. You can double click on these
settings to change them. Is you are for some reason unable
to enable the admin account, you must reboot to safe mode,
where the admin account is always enabled.

Now that you are sure that you have a functioning administrator
account, you must reset the password, since you cannot
retrieve it:


From the control panel, once again open up

Administrative Tools ---->
Computer Management --->
Local users and Groups ---->
Users ----->
Administrator ---->
Right click on administrator ---->
SET PASSWORD

....

This should do it.

N.B.
The administrator account will be re-created, you will loose
1) All settings and preferences
2) Access to any NTFS encrypted files the administrator
has encrypted.
3) Stored network and internet passwords (the administrator's)
4) Personal security certificates.

This procedure is different from simply changing the password,
because you don't know the original, so Windows treats it as a
hostile takeover, That's why you loose access to encrypted files.

If you have trouble starting the computer management Applet,
Run it manually:

START --> RUN --> compmgmt.msc

or

...\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe compmgmt.msc

==========================================

Trick:

If you do not have access to an existing account
with administrative privileges, you may be able to hack in
with and old setup disk from Windows 2000, with
no service packs, or at most XP1

The reason is that Windows 2000 did not anticipate nor
respect Windows XP security.

1) Reboot from the 2000 disk, and follow the on screen
prompts to repair the system using the

SYSTEM RECOVERY CONSOLE.

2) Do not proceed to install Win 2000, make sure you
get out before it asks you to format a disk, if you get
there you missed the prompt and you have gone too far,
Reboot and try again.

3) Once you are in the recovery console = DOS like environment
type HELP, and it will give you a list of commands.

You should be able to create a new user account
(with admin or change the admin password privs)

4) The last alternative is to purchase an XP password recovery
utility, which you run from a boot CD.

Good luck

Martin.

Boot the computer in safe mode and create another account with administrator privileges. Then restart normally and either use the new account, or re-set the original administrator account password.
