Accounts :: Unable To Connect Microsoft Account To Domain Account

Jun 25, 2014

I am a system administrator in a large enterprise environment and we are doing a rollout of Windows 8.1. In our image capture we somehow captured a setting that is disabling users from setting up a connected account with their domain account. I am relatively sure that it is in my unattend and I can fix it for machines going forward but I really don't want to have to reimage the machines I've already deployed.

When I go to connect an account, the "connect to a Microsoft account" option is grayed out and the "some settings are managed by your administrator" message is displayed at the top. This is NOT a group policy object that is applying. The machines are in a test OU and there is absolutely no policy applied. I have searched all through local policy and even did a search through the registry for "account" (that took forever) but have been unable to find any registry key or local policy that would be causing this issue.

What setting might be causing this? I have 30+ machines already out in the environment and the user experience is going to be terrible if I have to reimage them all.

Accounts :: MS Account Password Not In Sync Between Win 8.1 And Hotmail

Dec 22, 2013

I have a MS account in Win 8.1 which automatically logs me in.

Lately, I can only access my Hotmail and Skydrive through their respective Start Screen Apps. When I try to log on to either of them using my browser, I get an "Incorrect Password" message.

Although I didn't changed it, my password for Hotmail and Skydrive is not in sync with Win 8.1. So, is there any way for me to find out what my Win 8 password is so I can log in to my Hotmail and Skydrive accounts on the web?

Accounts :: Win 8.1 Home - Merge Domain User Account With Local User Account

Aug 28, 2014

I have a user with a machine that was setup with Win 8.1 Home. The machine has been upgraded to 8.1 Pro and joined to a domain (WinSrv 2003). I need to get the content/configuration from their old local machine user profile to their new domain user profile.

I tried to copy the contents of their ../users/<name>/.. folder from the local user profile to the new domain user profile (after they had logged in once, and then logged off). This did not work. When I did the copy, I grabbed all files, including hidden...was that my mistake, or is the issue broader?

In the end....they want their old stuff and configuration under their new credentials/profile.

Accounts :: User Accounts Can't Delete Bad Or Corrupt Account In UAC

May 11, 2013

How to correct user accounts in windows 8 Pro on new HP Pavilion g7 2246nr, I set notebook up using Microsoft account then called Microsoft when problems started, and we decided to switched to a local account. They created a new user account, then copied all my files to it. But I ended up with i administrator account that could not be deleted. That worked but my files are broken up between 3 other user accounts. I spoke with Microsoft to try and consolidate the accounts and they used a command line in cmd, run as an administrator, but it did not finish, or I may have cut it off by accident.

I am still working with the system but it has problems. I have reloaded the software 3 times so for. How to correct the problem without reloading all the software again? Also after setting up sharepoint in Office Pro Plus, it created another administrator account in UAC. I did not think this was going to happen? Right now in the UAC I have two administrator accounts with the sane name, In c:users there 5 with the temp file they created. What that command line they attempted to use was to correct and consolidate the user accounts.

How to correct the problem without reloading all the software again.

Accounts :: How To Create Windows 8 Account

Nov 16, 2013

Can I Remove User Accounts in Windows 8? - Windows 8 -

This is pretty insane because all I had to do was enter an email address; no name, no password, nothing. Now, all I have is an email address, and of course no name and no password. So, exactly how am I supposed to enter a name and password din SQL server, for the security to work, or whatever, when these things don't exist, and there's no way to create them.

I've been working on this project for weeks now, simply because every time I need to do something, I literally can't do what I need to do.

The REAL problem is that I have to use SQL Server to login to Windows. My Windows 8 works fine, and my SQL Server works fine, but they won't work together. That's the entire problem that I'm dealing with.

Accounts :: Logging Into Windows 8.1 Using MS Account?

Oct 25, 2013

Do I have to type password to log into windows each time that I'm using a 8.1 MS account?

I used to rely on skydrive a LOT, but now it seems like:

1) You need to login via a MS account to use skydrive.

2) You need to type your password to your MS account each time you login to windows.

Accounts :: Can't Log On To Windows With Microsoft Account After Update

May 21, 2014

For the last 2 days, I can't get logged into my computer.

My computer (running windows 8.1) starts up fine, and I get to the screen where I select my user profile and enter my password. I only have 1 account set up on this machine, and it uses my Microsoft Account log-on information. I enter my password correctly, and it starts to "appear" as though I am getting logged in. I receive the "Welcome" and the dots go around in a circle as it is loading. After about 5 minutes, it goes no where and then the enter passwod pops back up. I can not get past this screen, It just keeps going around in circles. I have also tried using the PIN instead of password, same result. Sometimes I receive the message "the user profile service failed the sign-in".

So far I have tried resetting my Microsoft password, and have done that successfully. I can access my Hotmail and all that fine from other machines. I also took the computer and hardwired the internet to it, thinking it might be something with the wireless (although if it is wasn't seeing the internet I would think it would tell me that).

I seem to remember a few days ago the computer telling me it was updating when I shut down, so maybe that is causing something. I am stuck and don't know where to go from here.

Accounts :: Windows 8 - How To Rename User Account

May 5, 2013

So for some reason, windows 8 thought it would be funny to change my user name to Al Ex instead of Alex, AND since you can't have space on the address bar, the folder ended up calling Al.

This annoyed me a lot more than it should have, because i have tried changing the user name through control panel, but that just changes the display name, not the folder's name. How do i rename it?

Accounts :: Windows 8.1 - Unwanted User Account Showing Up

Nov 15, 2013

Recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 on three PC's on home network but now I'm having a problem on my ASUS VivoTab Smart Tablet.

My main login screen has been setup to show three (3) users but shortly after upgrading, it started showing a fourth user. The user name for this fourth user is "zqtjerxnjfcz". When I clicked on it, it started the customizing process for a new user. As soon as I could I signed out and logged in under my own account and then deleted this new unwanted account but it keeps returning, usually after a restart or signing out and back in.

Accounts :: Windows 8 Pro - Can't Create User Account Despite Being Admin

Jun 10, 2013

I am using windows 8 pro OS. I have only one local account on my machine. My account is already in Administrator groups. I have checked that.

My problem is that I am not able to create/change any user account from control panel. After traversing to Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsUser Accounts.

There are all the different links named as below:
Change your account name
Change your account type
Manage other account etc..

However when I click on any of these links, nothing happens at all !!!

What could be the possible reason of this? Window is updated, I am able to do other stuff that only admin can do for example: installing/uninstalling software, running system tools etc. Moreover I am able to make changes to user accounts from Computer Management.

Accounts :: Can 1st Account Established During Windows 8 Setup Be Deleted

Mar 30, 2014

Is it possible to remove the initial admin account and user profile (not the built in elevated) that is setup when Win 8 1st starts?

--After creating a 2nd admin account and logging into it I try to delete the initial one but a UAC comes up asking me to use the initial account to do the delete.

Here is what I did:

install Windows 8
setup initial user account: name it Acct1 with local admin privileges.
restart computer, login to Acct1.
open CP, add user account: name it Acct2 with local admin privileges.
restart computer, login to Acct2.
via CP, chose remove account.
A UAC pops up asking to use Acct1 for the delete procedure to delete Acct1.
If I select "no" there is a return to the selection screen.


The reason I am trying to delete the account is I do not like the c:user(profile) and account name.

Accounts :: Can No Longer Login To PC Using Windows Live Account

Mar 25, 2014

I am using Windows 8 on my laptop which uses my Windows Live account to login. Problem is it has suddenly stopped letting me log in and I'm locked out. The message I get is "You can't sign into your PC at the moment. Go to to fix the problem or try the last password you used on this PC". I hadn't changed anything which may have made it do this.

I have tried the following but nothing is working:

- Changed my password in my Live account
- Used a previous password
- Plugged my laptop into a network cable rather than using just Wifi
- Rolled my laptop to a previous time

I can't refresh as it needs the password but I can access the command prompt. I'm not knowledgeable on command prompts so not sure what I could do here which might resolve it. I also don't want to lose any files.

Accounts :: Logging Into Windows 8.1 Account - Password Incorrect

Nov 10, 2013

I got an issue with my logging Windows 8.1 account. When I log in it tells me that my password is incorrect and I should go to and I did. But when I change my password it tells me the same thing like it haven't even change nothing. I try using my Windows 8 CD that I have and I did an automatic repair and it tells me this.

"Log File E:WINDOWSSystem32LogfileSrtSrtTrail.txt"

At that point I try to change my way of solving this and I went to system restore. I choose the date time I want it to restore my system to see if that fixed anything, but nothing still. I know it has to be with my password or something with my account which is odd, because I never had to link my microsoft account with my PC (if that is the case) But at this point I am again clueless. I even try pressing the F8 when I restart my system to being able to access my computer in a safe mode but it doesn't do a thing.

Accounts :: How To Change Account Name

May 17, 2013

When installing my Windows 8, I put the PC name as "Usmaan" and the account name as "UsSy" but after the installation and having used the laptop a bit more.. I changed the account name to "Usmaan".

The problem which I have is that although the account name has changed to "Usmaan", I still see the name "UsSy" every now and then when doing some development or when I for example check the path of files.. it will says C:...UsSy...file.txt

I should also state that when I was installing Windows 8, I tried specifying the account name as "Usmaan" but it complained that I cannot have the PC Name and and the account name the same.... hence why I put it as UsSy.

How do I change the UsSy name to Usmaan permanently?
