Disable User Account Control For Admin Profile?

Jun 9, 2008

In Vista Home Premium, I want to disable User Account Control just for the admininstrator profile. I want User Account Control to remain enabled for all other user profiles. How can I do this? I have tried several methods that Google found, but always when I disable UAC for admininstrator, it is then disabled for other users. How can I disable it just for the admininstrator?

I bought an Laptop with Vista Home Premium 32bit. If I install a FULL version of Windows 7 on this Laptop, can I use the Vista Home Premium 32bit key from the laptop on one of my other desktops?

New Email Account: New AOL E-mail Account, Clicked 'Add E-mail Account' At The Bottom Of My 'Windows Live Account'

Aug 24, 2009

I have a Windows Live Mail account and a Yahoo account and they both show up on the left hand side of my Window Live Mail account so I can choose which account I want to use or, for example, which inbox to look in. At the bottom, also on the left hand side of my Windows Live Mail account, it shows 'Add e-mail account', which is what I want to do with a new 'AOL' account and I want it to show on the left hand side like the two other accounts.

So I made a new AOL e-mail account, clicked 'Add e-mail account' at the bottom of my 'Windows Live Account', then I put in my new AOL e-mail account and password where it showed me. Then I clicked next.

The next page was all about my email server. When I did this before with a new e-mail account, it was all filled out automatically for me, but this time, all the blanks were left open and I have no idea what to fill in. I believe once I have this information, the AOL e-mail account will automatically then show on the left hand pane of my Windows Live Mail account below the other two accounts.

Windows Mail Account Don't Want New Account

Nov 10, 2009

Up until yesterday lunchtime my email inbox on Windows Mail (I have Vista) showed my old emails as well as my new mails. then suddenly all my old emails disappeared and I can only see new emails from yesterday lunchtime! my emails have vanished - how do I get them back? I use AOL - when I check my AOL via webmail i can still see the old emails so know they exist. so why have they disappeard from Windows Mail?

I have several folders set up on my AOL Windows Mail accont so don't want to have to set up a new windows mail account as I will lose allmy folders. And my account settings are set to "view all mail". even wehn I press "send & receive" none of my old inbox emails are being shown up.

Gmail Account Not Retrun Account

May 14, 2010

my Gmail account has been comprimised yesterday They have changed the secondary email so I cannot just reset the password I have tried to fill out the form to regain control over your account but they declined to give me my account. I have filled it out as best as I can, but I cannot remember the dates that I set up (I have deleted the email that I got when I set up the account). I never use personal information with that email account, and I didn't really mind about it, but I have got accounts registered with other sites (VF, SF, EF etc.) on it. I have changed the emails and passwords on these sites, but I don't know if I have missed any websites. Is there any way that I can contact google (preferably by email) to sort out this?

I know people will try to say this to gain control over somebodies gmail account, but you can check my rep and posts, I am a truthful person. This is the email that Google sent me: Originally Posted by Google Thank you for your report. We've completed our investigation and cannot return your account at this time.

Duplicate Folders In Profile

Apr 30, 2010

After a windows update I now have duplicated folders (not contents) in my profile folder. If I view c:/users/profile then the duplicates are not there. If I just click the Profile link then they are. - 2 Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favourites, Music, Pictures, Videos. Interestingly enough there is not a duplicate Links , Contacts or Saved Games, AppData or Searches.

The original content is still intact in the original folders but my profile is accessing the new ones so all of my program settings, browser profiles etc are inaccessible using the normal methods.

Also if I navigate to desktop then it shows links that don't show if I view my desktop.

A few weeks ago after an update Vista did a similar thing but started using a temporary profile even when I logged in fine so I couldn't access thigns, I created a new profile and copied stuff across. Now this! Arghhh, I hate windows, you never get this crap with *nix stuff.

Anyway, rant over, anyone any idea? I'm tearing my hair out and google hasn't helped. I'm not a tech noob but I don't have any real insight into how Vista does these things, I do web development not windows.

User Profile Cannot Be Loaded ..

Nov 14, 2008

I have recently been having many with my computer. Firstly, i was having problems with the SID where it says user profile cannot be loaded. After many hours i managed to fix this problem but i've recently got a new problem.

I Installed a new wireless network card into a pci slot and started the computer and it worked. As i hadn't had my computer working for a while i decided to update the video card driver and decided to check for updates for windows. I installed both the video card driver and windows updates and rebooted. But when the computer tried to start up all the fans started and the power light goes on but nothing happens.

I don't know whether the problem is with the new hardware, the driver update or the windows updates. The computer won't start at all and i have some important work on it.

Monitor ICC Profile Not Loaded

Feb 21, 2009

Like many serious photographers my workflow is colour profiled so what I see on screen is printed, using separate ICC colour profiles for monitor and printer. I have done this for years. I now have a problem with Vista32 Ultimate SP1 where the monitor ICC file (correctly located in ...spool/color) and with the monitor color options showing my ICC and with "use my profile" checked -- it doesn't. The monitor profiling to generate the profile file runs fine and the result on monitor is great until I sleep/resume or reboot -- at that point my profile is briefly loaded and then "kicked out" as it reverts to native. I need to find a way to stop Vista doing this

Visible Profile Folders To A Server

Mar 26, 2009

I want to redirect all my (visible) profile folders to a server. I have done this for all them except Desktop. I do this by right-clicking the folder's icon, clicking Properties, clicking on the Location tab, entering a location of \servershareusernameFolder, and clicking OK. It asks if I want to move everything in the current folder to the new folder, and I click Yes. Easy, and it works perfectly.

When I do this for the Desktop, it works just fine. But the next time I log in (whether after a reboot or not), the desktop folder has reverted back to C:UsersusernameDesktop. Nothing I do will make it stick to the server. The other redirected folders stay where I put them and they continue to work normally.

Temporary User Profile ALWAYS Loads!!

Apr 15, 2010

The problem started when I decided to do a reboot after installing some programs. Since then whenever I log on it takes ages displaying the "welcome" message, then comes up with the dreaded "preparing your desktop" message. It then loads a "temporary user profile" and says that any changes made while logged on to this profile will be lost afterwards, and to check the event log or contact the network administrator.

I've read heaps about this problem happening to people with vista and windows 7 (I have vista home ed). It's supposed to be due to a corrupted profile, and so if you delete the profile in the "regedit" thing it's supposed to fix itself. Others have also suggested creating a new account and transferring everything. I have tried countless restarts, restoring the system, deleting the user profile (all my stuff is now fully backed up) and creating new accounts. None of it works - a temporary profile still loads from a newly created account, the same happens even in safe mode and from the built in administrator account. I'm at a total loss as to what to do!! I use my computer every day for work so you can hopefully imagine how frustrating this is!

Network User Profile Not Saving

Mar 23, 2008

I have added my first Windows Vista Business to our Windows 2003 network domain. User home directories are redirected to a network share via a logon script (batch file). Note: as far as I know no group policy controlling the redirection, no roaming is being used.

Issue: Whenever the user logs off the profile doesn???t get saved and the next logon appears like it???s the first time logging in to the account. For example: the folders created are userName (for the first login) the next login creates userName.001 (for the next login) and so on. how to resolve the issue? Is it something to do with the new account structure and I have to modify the logon script?

How Do Change Full Name And Company Name In Profile?

Mar 23, 2008

I purchase a new PC with Vista Home Premium from BestBuy and had them install a graphics card. Well, evidently, they did the basic boot up and check up stuff. Now, everytime I install new software, the software grabs my name suggestion as being "owner" and my company "Hewlett Packard". Microsoft Office, Visual Studio 2008, everything. Of course, all I have to do is type in my correct name, but it is very aggravating. The name on my user account is "Bill" (I changed it when I got the computer home) but I cannot find where to change my default full name and company. It is NOT in Control Panel > User Accounts. Seems like this was easy to do in XP.

So he is unable to get to any of his files or music in the Media Center. He uses my user profile to get to his Yahoo browser to get his email but cannot get any of his bookmarks which is becoming very irritating to him. I can't blame him.

Today I tried to log onto my administrator account for the first time in a few weeks and I recieved the error "User Profile Service Failed the Logon". I searched for a solution and this is what I found..

Quote: 1. I closed down.

2. Turned computer on and immediately pressed F8 repeatedly until I got "Advanced Boot Options".

3. used the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and pressed enter.

4. computer then opened eventually in the funny look of safe mode, with

a "Help" window.

5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?" Clicking on that gave me the answer and "Click to open System Restore"

6. I clicked on that and a new window came up recommending restoring to a previous state before windows update which I had done before the fault occurred.............
