how I can transfer all the items on my user account to another account on my computer since my system icons are all grayed out and can't get them to work no matter what I try. So the best solution for me is to transfer to another account and then my troubles will be over?
I am setting up a brand new laptop with Windows 7. I have not used Win 7 before. I have set up two user accounts, both "administrator" accounts. I have downloaded Google Chrome using one of those accounts, but when logged on as the second user, I cant see the Chrome shortcut, or find the program file. If I search for "chrome" or "chrome.exe", the result is "nothing found". Using File Explorer doesnt help, as that is not showing the program files under either user logon. I did not have this problem with Vista.
I installed a program to my main user account which is an administrator account. When I click on the program to open, the mouse pointer changes like the program is going to load and then it stops. I logged into my second user account which is also an administrative account and the program opens without any problems.
I've got a large program that I've installed on my wife's laptop, that I'd like to be available only when I log onto her computer. She currently is the only USER. I installed the program (it takes many discs to install, plus it has been customized post-installation) when logged in as her, and now I'd like to have my own account, and transfer that program to my account.
I have set up a standard user account on my Son's laptop, but there are software programs I would like him to have access to, without me having to log on with Administrator ever time.When he try's to run said program it says Parental Controls has blocked this program the Administrator can grant access. I don't have any programs blocked under Parental Controls. Is there a way to grant access to certain programs without having to log in as administrator every time while using a standard user account?
When you install a program from within Administrator account should it automatically be available from within the User account as well?I installed a program from within the Administrator account but when I go the the User account it is no where to be found.
am using window 7 ultimate. the thing is that, as an administrator, i dont seems to have full control of my pc. i can install softwares, cant delet some program files, cant make changes to my account name or type, cant manage other account and i cant install my system update. note. it shows a logo b4 (change ur account name,type,manege another account)
Adobe CS6 suite was working fine when I crashed using After Effects. I now get crashes or locking when rendering in After Effects or Premier Pro. Adobe Media Encoder won't even launch. I created a new user account they all run fine (so far). Same thing on my old machine running CS4.
1) Fixing my original user account (registry edit? some corrupt file somewhere?)
2) Transferring or recreating all my accounts, libraries, shortcuts, etc. to the new account and delete the old one. Is there an easy way to do this? Currently using Windows 7-64 (Pro)
i start my pc up (from being off) and get logged into a temp user profile. It tells me that i cannot acess my user profile and all information will be deleted on logging out. I've looked online for a soloution but none work for me ,I really dont know how to resolve this problem,I have limited knowledge and computer skills. i really dont want to scrap this drive and start over.
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.
I'm hoping to teach Mum how to use my PC in the near future and she will only be using it for typing etc and maybe the internet. Also she only use it sometimes. shall I create a Limited User Account for her or turn on the Guest Account?
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.
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?
How do I map existing User Folders to a newly created User Account?I had existing User Folders on drive D. I added a new drive C and installed the OS on C but changed default location of User Folders to D. Now my existing User Folders are in the Users folder on D but there is no User Account associated with them. If I create a user account with the same name will it map to the existing folder within Users?I did a test of this. I created a folder called Test within Users then created a User account called Test and logged in. It created another folder within Users called Test.Computername.
I put a folder in my admin acct it also appears in the guest acct which is dangerous. I need both acct's but how can I put is only in admin. When I delete it from the guest acct is disappears from the admin acct too.
I forgot all my information and couldn't recover my Steam account. I went ahead and made a new steam account, now I want to load my games i have that need steam into my new account but it says it can't because it's been using on another account. Does anyone on her know how I can get the games from one account to my new account?
just purchase a new PC running Windows 7 Pro 64. Am trying to move my files from "old" Windows 7 Pro 32 PC to the new one through a home network. They both connect, WET starts, analyses but when I say go i get an error code: "Windows Easy Transfer can't log on to your domain account"?What's up with that?
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.
I was installing a patch so i could get the Personalization Panel on my Windows 7 Home Edition and had to restart my computer. When i was logging in my user account i typed my password and the screen just went black and then just brought me back to the start up screen where you pick a user. I share a computer with my sister and she couldn't log in her account either. I'm guessing there was probably some kind of virus or something but i'm not sure. What can i do?
I have one PC on which I am running Windows 7 ultimate and Windows XP (via MS Virtual PC 2007).I have downloaded Windows Easy Transfer for Windows XP (wet7xp_x86.exe) and installed it onto the the VM running XP.I have created several accounts on the XP VM but during the transfer only the administrator user account that I am logged into in VM XP is transferred into Windows 7. Should not all the accounts be transferred simultaneously? What am I doing wrong?
I've just spent 12 hours using WINDOWS EASY TRANSFER to transfer all my files which were on a 2TB Hard Drive to an extrenal 2TG hard drive, which I would then use to transfer the files to the new computer. The total size of the files were c900GB. The majority of these files are video files - video editing being the main reason for the high spec new machine.Both machines running Windows 7
My new system is:-
Sabertooth x79 2100 ROG motherboard i7 3939k Processor 32GB RAM 1 x Intel 520 series 480GB SSD (Boot) 2 x Corsair Black 2TB HDD (1 for user files, 1 as a back up drive) Not RAID
I have installed all my programs on the new SSD and configered my user account (ROY) on the 1st 2TB HDD (there are no user accounts on the SSD).After waiting overnight for all my files to be transferred to the external drive, I started Windows Easy Transfer on the New computer. I went to the advanced setting to select that the files should be transferred to the ROY account on the new computer which resulted in the message"THERE ISN'T ENOUGH DISK SPACE AVAILABLE TO TRANSFER YOUR FILES AND SETTINGS" - Free up some disk space and try again.Is there any 'workaround' to get Easy Transfer to send the user files to the ROY account on the D:/ Drive, and the Windows files to the SSD C:/ Drive?
I know one can change how to allow User Account Control to change its settings (the slider) but is there a way for controlling which programs are always allowed (giving it permission hence never having to see that annoying window for that program)? I do not want to disable it. I just want Windows 7 to know which programs to allow and which to not allow.
I just got a new computer. I had my User Account setup, had a password on it. I was making sure Windows was up to date, had to restart, then restarted on its own again(I'm assuming part of the update), and when it booted back up, it said my account has been disabled. Please contact your system administrator. I can sign in under Administrator, or Other User. The password I set up with my account doesn't work for Administrator. Is there a default password?
