Just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista (courtesy of Acer).
During the upgrade, my email accounts settings were automatically transferred and seem to work OK but the name of one of my accounts has lost the first letter. I have tried to find my way into the settings to do a manual check but I need to be pointed in the right direction.
Best Way To Migrate Account Settings To A New One?
This is also my first experience with the security scheme of Windows 7. I'm used to having total ownership in XP, so I started messing with the permissions and ownerships in my account all willy-nilly until - predictably - it's causing all kinds of weird behavior.I don't want to reinstall, instead I'd like to migrate to migrate to Windows 7's hidden super-administrator account and start using that as my default account. (This computer never hooks up to a network, so I'm not worried about using the super admin account on a daily basis.)What would be the best way to migrate my account's settings (programs, customizations, etc.) to the admin account, without also transferring the permissions and ownerships?

UAC Settings - Access Denied On Administrator Account?
So I am using Windows 7 and I made an account for my nephew so he can use without nagging me about entering in a password. But I wanted to make it so that he cannot download anything or edit any files on the C: Drive without a admin password. I changed the security settings on C: so that it will not allow anyone who is not Admin to access any files in the C: folder. My problem is that it locked everyone out of C: ... Any UAC settings or account settings cant be done.
My account is an admin and anytime it try to access anything or run anything as administrator, It says Access Denied. (BTW I never get a prompt to put in an admin password). So I went on safe mode and made it so that the Built in admin would show and I logged on it. I opened an elevated cmd and tried to change the uac settings.. but all I get is an Access Denied! I don't know what to do and I do not want to have to reset the whole computer. I cannot use system restore because it says access denied.
Prevent Non-interactive Account From Changing Autoplay Settings?
i would like my autoplay settings to be un-change-able to anyone but myself. This means if an app is installed and tries to take control of an autoplay event, it gets an error code and the setting remains unchanged. If, however, I use the control panel to change a setting then it is allowed and the change goes through.
Is there a permission that can be added or removed from a registry key that controls autoplay settings for my user? (win 7 home premium x64)
Easy Tranfer Settings For Complete Account Transfer
I have made a clean installation of Windows 7 Ultimate on a new hard drive on the same computer as the current Windows 7 Ultimate installation. Now I want to transfer my account with all files and settings, including all saved passwords, wireless accounts & keys, BitLocker keys, all modifications to the system settings plain everything. I tried it once with the standard selection where not everything on the user profile is selected for transfer. But that did not give me exactly the result I had in mind.

Transferring Windows Live Mail 2011 Contacts To Newly Created Account
I had no problem transferring all of the other data from my old hard drive, but I cannot bring the Windows Live Mail Contacts into my new created account. I am not using a Microsoft email, but the one from my internet provider. I found the contact list on user/my name/app data/local/Microsoft/Windows Live Contacts/Guid/DBStore. I used a program called LiveContactsView, but it only shows the demographic information and no email addresses. Is there a program or another way to retrieve all of my contact list.
Few Programs Don't Run On Admin Account But Only On 2nd Account
I run Windows 7 on a Sony Vaio, and never had issues.recently I had this situation where some software doesn't run properly on my main account (admin) but only in a secondary account I had created the software is installed without problems, but then it fails to run properly as an example I have a small car speed detector which has a software to download journeys. it doesn't run as it should on the main account no matter what I try. similarly i bought a Sony Bloggie and its portable software as well as the main software that came with it don't work properly, but they do on the other account, so I (annoyingly) have to switch users, and run the software there, and then go back to my main account.I suspect some anti-virus or other stuff from my main account is "blocking" things somehow. I also had a number of instances where I get alerts like "windows cannot open this file for security reasons". I have tried to change security settings, firewall settings but nothing worked.there was a general security level that required admin status to lower, yet although I obviously am admin, windows wouldn't allow me to do.
Auto-login, One Account, No Password: Avoid To Click Account Icon?
I followed the procedure found on the web, I entered "netplwiz" and did unchecksers must enter a user name and password to use this computer". There is no password setTHere is just one user/account which is obviously also the administrator. (the Account tab shows also HomeGroupUser$, but I guess is a default option...)the point is that when I switch the pc on, I have to click on the icon of the user account in order to see the desktop. Is there any chance I can login automatically without even clicking on the user icon
Slow Log On For Single User Account On Multi Account System
I would appreciate any help identifying the cause of extremely slow log on times for a user account on our family laptop. The machine is running Windows 7 - 64-bit version, and currently has 3 users accounts 2 admin and 1 regular. The regular account has begun to experience log on times that last for minutes (The Welcome splash screen prior to log on screen), while the admin accounts have no problems. I have seen other posts regarding slow log on times, but I haven't seen those which address the issue for a specific user account.
Default User Account (Administrator) Acts Like Standard Account
I am using Windows 7 Pro 64x and apparently the default user account (Owner) that I use is not working correctly. Unless I have UAC set to Never Notify, I cannot open Control Panel or UAC again. I have created a second user account as Administrator and it works correctly.
I would like to know if there is any way to fix this problem short of a clean install of Windows. If not, is it possible to move all of my settings to the user account that works correctly and delete the one that does not.
Use Default Admin Account Vs Standard User Account?
I have always been running admin and even until now I run as admin. But, I have been doing a little bit of research and realize that using a standard account is a safer practice. I have never even used a standard account.Is using a standard account a better practice? Also, how does doing average task such as installing programs and updating work through the standard user account?
Can't Change A Standard Account To An Administrator Account
I recently logged onto my account about 2 days ago to finish a project. The music file I used for the account was could not be found and when I went to locate it I was told I didn't have administrator rights. I went to Control Panel because I was sure I was an Administrator, but sure enough, I was set as a Standard User. I tried changing it up but it wouldn't change. I tried changing the account name also, and it wouldn't change. I could only change account picture. I can't open UAC, I click it and it blinks but nothing opens. I deleted any recent program installations,I booted in safe mode, however I was still not able to change my account,I tried activating the hidden administrator account but I received an "access denied" message,I tried creating a new account but I received the following message:"The specified account name is not valid, because account names contain the following characters: /":;|<>=+,?*Please type a different name."I didn't use any of those characters in the account name.I ran 2 different virus scans, and they came up with nothing,I turned the computer off, unplugged everything, and pressed the power button for 30 seconds, and rebooted, but still nothing!My roommate shares this computer with me, and her account is still an administrator. However she has traveled and I haven't been able to get hold of her yet. We share music files and the file I was trying to use is in her account.why my account was changed and how I can change it back?
