Downloaded Program Not Available To Second User Account?

Dec 20, 2011

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.

Any Way To Reassign Existing Program To New User Account?

Aug 6, 2010

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.

Standard User Account Program Access?

Jul 30, 2011

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.

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?

Forced To Create A New User Account For Program(s) To Work?

Sep 30, 2012

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)

Default User Account (Administrator) Acts Like Standard Account

Oct 31, 2011

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 would appreciate any help identifying the cause of extremely slow log on times for a user account on our family laptop.

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?

Easy Transfer From OLD-HDD To NEW-SSD (Boot), HDD (User Files)?

Jun 24, 2012

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?

User Account Was Deleted

Aug 17, 2011

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?

Cannot Create New User Account

Jul 7, 2012

My account is a full administrative account. I need to create another user account for a family member. I go to the User section of Control Panel and add the new user, give the account a name with NO password and set to standard user. However, whenever I reboot my Windows 7 Home Premium machine, I get a red x with a message that says - "The username and password are incorrect." I can OK and continue to boot to my account. If I "Switch User" I can log in to the new account successfully. However, I continue to get the error message on boot instead of seeing the screen that shows both accounts so you can choose which one you want to log in to.

Can't Create New User Account

Apr 18, 2012

This is the tip of a horrible iceberg. Active links in the control panel don't open, as though I don't have permission to access the contents, although UAC doesn't appear. I couldn't install Paint Shop Pro and part of the advice was to create a new account (various reasons, not relevant to this post) but I couldn't. I have full admin rights. Elsewhere, device manager is empty (have posted elsewhere about this) so I can't check device conflicts. I contacted Dell support but had nothing useful back, except the advice that they don't supply W7 repair/reinstall software because it's 'preinstalled and so free' (really? thought I'd bought the whole kit and caboodle), I have to buy a new copy. I don't really want to do a fresh reinstall, although I do feel a bit unarmed without an actual copy of windows to hand

Switch User Account

Aug 9, 2009

I would like to know how to create a hotkey that allows me to automatically switch to the Guest account without having to click switch user in the start menu and then click the guest account.

Once I am logged into the guest account I would like to use the same hotkey to switch back to the administrator account which has a password.

Example

Current screen: administrator (has password)

Press hotkey

New screen: guest account desktop

Current screen: guest account desktop

Press hotkey

New screen: screen with prompt for administrator password

Also can somebody tell me where I can edit the user rights, settings, etc for the guest account?

User Account Is Disabled?

Aug 12, 2011

Have had this machine over a year, 3 weeks ago, I started getting a random message that my account has been disabled, contact system admin.

Well, that's me! started in safe mode, enabled the administrator account (no password) then tried to login as Administrator....SAME MESSAGE! Rebooted a couple of times, was able to finally login as my user account: GENE (who is an admin as well) Double checked security profile to ensure *something* hadn't set that - nope. I then used the system restore DVD to do a restore anyways...

Things have been fine for about 2 weeks, but then this morning..same thing.
Tried to login as user GENE (an admin account) received the message, your account is locked out and to contact system admin.. After enabling Administrator through safe mode command line, I rebooted into Administrator fine. When I go to the Control Panel, user GENE is not there, however the user profile exists AND the files are there under c:usersgene really really weird

System: Windows 7 Pro, SP1, Alienware, Intel i7 12GB ram, 64bit workstation - no domain

'user Account Has Been Disabled'?

Aug 21, 2011

So I got a new desktop computer, and a User account was already set up for me. So when I got it I did some software installing, anti virus, malwarebytes, windows updates. Had to do some restarts for the Windows updates and all is still well.hen added a password to my user account, and had some more Windows updates, although some weren't critical ones, just recommended. The pc needed to restart again, so I restart. Now when I turn on my pc, Windows will load and show a screen that says "Your account has been disabled. Please contact your system administrator." I click Ok underneath it and it goes to a log in screen with two options. First is Administrator. It requires a password. It's not the one I set up. The second option is Other User. That one I can click, type in my user account name and password and that works. So I can get into my computer ok. But I would really like to get rid of that Account has been disabled message and make it so only my User account shows up at the log in screen. I thought about trying a system restore to a time before it started happening. Would that get rid of Windows updates, if that is the cause
