If you can do a systen restore or see if you can get it to boot into the windows boot screen and see if you can go to original configuration that worked or you are going to have to use the recovery disk if you have one ok best regards mike

For got parent contral i user name

There are 3 main user types in Mac OS
Administrator: Can do pretty much anything, including adding and managing other users, installing apps, and changing settings.
Standard: Created by an administrator. Standard users can install apps and change settings for their own account... can't add other users or change other users' settings.
Managed: Users who are managed with parental controls can access only the apps and content specified by the administrator managing the user.

Assuming that the parental account that you are referring to is indeed an administrator, there are a few possible solutions, some of which are version dependent. See here for details:

try this, it may help
  • Go ahead and create a new user account, and make sure you give it a name like MAIN or ADMIN for administrative purposes.
  • Make the other account the administrator by going to: START, CONTROL PANEL, USER ACCOUNTS AND FAMILY SAFETY, USER ACCOUNTS. Then select to make it the administrator
  • Log off your user account, and go to the new administrator account, then delete the old account. After that you create another user name with the same name as the one you deleted so as to get a fresh start.
  • Install whatever programs were not allowed to be installed on the old administrator account because of error messages and other flaws that kept repeating themselves on the old user account. Voila! You have now bypassed the errors that keep you from having a Laptop with no errors on your software programs.

How do I fix error 571 on my 9800 monarch ticket machine using my loftware 32 design ticket?

If you are getting error 571 from Nebraska Book Company's WinPrism inventory control system, File --> System Settings --> set the Receipt Type to 8-1/2 X 11. It seems irrelevant but it works.

Another possible resolution to the problem is to remove the Windows (XP, 7, 8, 10) profile of the offending user:

0. Login as the offending user and backup anything they want to keep, like browser bookmarks/favorite or documents on the desktop.
1. Log into Windows as a local administrator.
2. Control Panel --> User Accounts --> select the offending user --> Remove.
3. Restart.
4. Log into Windows as a local administrator.
5. Delete C:\Users\offending_user
6. The following is necessary to avoid a "temporary profile" error: Regedit.exe HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows NT --> Current Version --> ProfileList --> select each entry until you find the one with a ProfileImagePath of C:\Users\offending_user and delete it.
7. Control Panel --> User Accounts --> add the user.
8. Login as the offending user, add the printer, and now it should work.

I have a old ibm thinkpad n deleted all programs now i cant get in to create user acct

Hello pamnwillie,
If your computer has "System Restore," you can possibly 'recover the programs',
that you 'deleted'!
To perform a "System Restore.
"Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all.
The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button, paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.
Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find, Accessories.

Open the program.
"Next select the "System Tools.
"You will see in the next window that open; "System Restore!


"Now this is very important!
Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut."

It will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient.
"Do not try to do any type of work.

Don't even touch the keyboard for any reason; just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event;
choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.

eg. "Deleted Programs."


"Now once again, there will be a 'message'!

Do not do anything with the computer,
"Please don't."
The System Restore will "run" for a while; so once again be patient.


The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart."
Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open,

because System Restore is still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the

"Restore of your System was successful!"
Take your time.
"I hope all goes well; please let me know if you need further assistant.
"Best Regards."

Internal error 2718 roxio media manager pops up upon startup. I have deleted everything in the registry relating to it. i have used reg cure, system mechanic. I cant open system restore, user accounts or...

Make sure you are logged in to an account with administrator privileges.

Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig", click OK. In System Configuration, click the Startup tab. Uncheck anything relating to Roxio Media Manager. Click OK and reboot.

Be very careful when dealing with the registry. Most registry cleaners do more harm than good if not used carefully. The "Delete everything I find" attitude often leads to a slower computer than when you started.
