Preferred Solution: Unidentified User Account with Special Permission associated with this code: S-1-5-21-904484872-3305195401-3191872119-1006?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


User account only has (Special permissions) checked and I can't get it to change. I have activated the Admin account and I have gone into the admin account and tried to change the account permissions their and it shows that it does them. But when I try to run Avira or AVG it says that it can't because of permissions on this account. So I go back to the user account and it is set back to (Special Permissions). When I am in the admin account ever thing works great. I have scanned the computer many times looking for spyware but i can't find anything. Anyone have any advice. This is on a Toshibe Laptop running Win7 Home Premium.

I'm not griping this time!

I've set up a limited account on my computer, and when I was testing it out, I noticed that I was able to manipulate the settings to the anti-virus program that's installed. How do I, using my administrator account, prevent the limited account from messing with it? I've hidden as many folders as possible, but the task bar icon is still visible and I can't hide it. And I can't right-click the task bar icon and mess with the security settings that way.

A:User account permission settings


The problem is more with your Internet Security software than with Vista. If you make the files for the Internet Security software inaccessible to a limited user - that software might not work properly for that user. Most Internet Security software (i.e. Norton, McAfee) allows you to install parental controls and give you the ability to control WHAT Windows users can or cannot do (including the manipulation of the software's settings).

What Internet Security Software are you using? Have you installed parental controls? Did you install the software while logged in as "Administrator"?

Let me know and I can probably offer more assistance.

I note that there have been several other posts on this subject but I cannot see one that solves my problem. I was transferring files from one external drive to another, I found a problem with a set of folders that I could not transfer with permission which should have been fine as I have administrator rights.

Looking at the folder permissions I found an unknown user account
Looking for solutions I tried to delete this account but was not allowed unless I turned off inherited permissions
I tried turning off the inheritance but this resulted in an error saying it failed to enumerate the number of objects in the container access denied.

Looking at some individual files (in one of the offending folders) properties showed 'Unable to display current owner' selecting the 'Change' option allowed me to change the file ownership to Everyone - Full Control and I could then move or delete the file.

There are quite a lot of files to do so is there a way to change all the affected folder & file permissions in one move?


A:Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission problem

Hi Jon, welcome to the Eight Forums.

The user profile with SID (security identifier) ending with 1001 is usually (not always) the first user account created when Windows is installed or a pre-installed Windows booted first time. In most cases this means it's your own user account.

You can check for which user account that SID belongs by giving the following command in Command Prompt:

wmic useraccount get name,sid

This example from my laptop, the first account I created when I installed Windows 8.1 was a local account called Admin which got the SID 1001:

SID ending with 500 belongs always to the built-in administrator account, SID ending with 501 to built-in Guest account, whether these two accounts are enabled and active or not. Other user accounts start from 1000.

What the above means is that you have most probably tried to remove your own account. Don't do that !

Hello community.

I have Windows 10 installed with Insider version 14332. I cannot access any account settings or change credentials such as password or enter a PIN code. When I want to login with my PIN-code it says "Object not found".

I would like to have some help with this issue. I have re-installed Windows 10 and with no Insider version installed, everything works perfectly. As soon as I install Insider version, the same issue is back.

Where it says "User Accounts" I cannot click on neither "User Accounts", "Change account type" or "Remove Account" in the old control panel. I just click and nothing happens.

If I click on "Login alternatives" in the new control panel, it keeps loading with those little moving dots and nothing happens... It keeps loading.

Please see attached pictures.

I'm sorry for the Swedish language but I hope you understand since it's the same interface =)

I own a desktop computer which I share with my 15 yr old son and he seems to be able to access my administrator account using either the guest account or his standard account.
I'm not sure how he is able to do this

But I know he is doing this, as I set up family safety on his account and he seems to be able to change it on his own whenever I turn it on his account

When I check the security settings of some of my folders in the documents library, they grant full control to different groups that are not the default e.g. my own user name and administrators
It grants full control to groups such as BATCH and SERVICE and CREATOR OWNER
I dont think I have seen these groups before and I know that I did not make them or grant them access to my accounts

Also I noticed that he also made multiple local user accounts and then deleted the user so that it just has the account folder in the users folder

So far to combat this problem, I tried removing the groups and my sons user account from the permissions menu in the security tab of properties. However, he seems to have granted himself special permission as it wont allow me to remove the permission from him as well as having the special permission option greyed out so I cannot click on it

I checked the user account settings and I am still administrator and the default administrator account is still administrator and my son's account is still a standard account

Recently I changed my password and the default administrato... Read more

On a more constructive note: I would be looking in his account (and yours) for software that you aren't familiar with. I can't think of how else he would be doing it. Unless he uninstalls it after compromising administration?

Guys I have done this in the past but cannot recall how and don't want to botch.

I had hoped Windows 10 corrected the "rename user account" function but nope. I renamed a User Account due to conflict on the LAN [same name, same spelling] and sure enough, now I have two names for the account, one a slightly hidden original name, and permissions issues. To rid it, I will create an all new Administrator account, move everything over, and demolish the old.
How to do? the docs/files are easy... the settings for apps etc are not as I recall


A:Move/copy-paste User Account data & docs to New User account same sys

Don't even try would be my recommendation.

Make a new Admin account and copy your documents. Set everything else up from scratch.

Most applications will store their stuff in %localappdata% but unless you have some specific app (Windows Live Mail or Outlook or something) tht you must move it would be much better not to try to move things.

If there is something specifically you want to move then ask about that - I've moved the 2 I mention above, for sure someone else has moved something else.

Generally it will be quicker (and cleaner) to start from scratch than trawl though everything hoping to make sure you moved the lot. You'll only end up missing some odd directory and it will not work.

I have a Vista 32 system that has some corruption. Several things like the NET v2.0 framework do not work correctly and it does not do a Windows update without an error. Basically, I know some corruption must exist in the registry.

I have a new drive that I restored a backup from way back when the system was working OK. Naturally there are programs and files that need to be updated. I will have to reinstall the programs that did not exist on the old backup, but I was hoping I could restore my user account profile "in bulk" without just moving individual files. Is there anything wrong with deleting the whole content of the restored user account profile and replacing it with my present profile?

A:replacing a restored user account from backup with present user account

You could use Windows Easy Transfer, I will be back with more information.


You can also, just back up your files etc and then restore them to the new account.

You have to be careful with anything that you do, to be sure that the corruption is not transferred.

I changed the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon to hide a user account and expected the system to give me an option to enter username as well as password to log back on to the same hidden account. But
NO, no luck. It still gives you all unhidden user account to select from in order to log on though.

Unfortunately the account I have hidden is the only Administrator account I have in the system. I've tried to change the registry by logging on as a standard user. However both the command prompt and the regedit do not offer option to run as administrator.
So I can't restore the registry.

We are creating a PDF file in login user's local application folder (C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\folder1) through a custom .Net application and displaying the created pdf file in application.

The above functionality is working for users who are part of domain and added to local vista machine as users (both for administrator and standard user accounts).
The same is not working for local users (both administrator and standard user accounts created in vista box).

File is getting created for any user under their local appdata folder and can able to open from that location, but not displaying from app in case of local system users (admin or standard type).

Can anyone help me what security settings differ between domain users vs local users in vista business 32 bit OS?


A:domain account user vs local account user in vista

Policy that is actually causing the problem (or lack thereof) is corresponds to Internet Options control panel, Connections tab, Lan Settings button: Use Automatic Configuration settings.
Having this turned on causes IE to load a configuration file prepared by IT department which makes a whole lot of configuration changes to IE, including remapping the security zones. We can test this by unchecking this option (the default state).
Since the machine is in domain and since we are testing with domain users accounts, I have monitored domain controller pushing down a bunch of policy settings which relax the IE security settings, causing the reports to display.
First, domain settings will resync over time and this checkbox will keep getting turned back on automatically. So you can?t really turn this off, it won?t stay off. I would feel better just testing local accounts, but since the computer is also a member of the domain, machine-specific policies are applied by the domain as well.

I have a Dell XPS 9100 with Windows 7 Prof. I am using the user account made during the initial bootup of the new computer, to make the desired settings and adding software installations. However after I finish with the initial tweaking, I will reduce the account privileges from Administrator to Standard user level. However, before I change the account level, I will make another user account with administrator user level.

Is there a way to have the new user account have the same settings as the initial user account when it is Simimade, such as copying, etc? I am not looking forward to manually making all of the sames changes/settings that I have made in the initial bootup user account, to the new user account with administrator privileges.

I would very much appreciate any suggestions regarding the above. Thanks Sam

A:Creating a New User Account Similar to an Existing User Account

Hello Scams,

About as close as you can get to this would be to create a new administrator account with the name you like, then copy all of the contents of the old user account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new user account.

It will copy most of your settings, like your Start Menu shortcuts, to the new account, but items stored in the registry, like your desktop background, would have to be reset again.

Hope this helps some,

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 conten/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.



A:Merge Domain User Account with Local User Account

There are 4 conventional ways of accomplishing this task.

Option 1: Simply copy My Documents, Favorites, Desktop items from one to the other. You will have to setup program options again, may or may not be a big deal

Option 2: Use the Windows Easy Transfer option. Explained here. Vista & Win7 local to domain profile migration

Option 3: Use the Copy To Feature in User Profiles, explained here: Copy a user profile. The steps are outlined for different versions of Windows, but they work the same in Windows 8.

On my vista installation, I have changed the locations of some of the special folders - contacts, desktop, links etc. I was wondering if anyone knows how to hide them in the user area because although you cannot see them when you manually navigate to your area using computer, if you double click on the icon for your area on the desktop or on the start menu you can still see the folders for them. They are like shortcuts. This confused me majorlly when I first installed vista because i just tried deleting them and then wondered why the special folder in the new location deleted too. It's because they are kind of like links and whatever you do to the links, affects the special folder regardless of it's location. This is why I cannot just try and hide them because it doesn't affect it at all - it just hides the special folders in the new location.

Hope that's all clear.

howdy all,

i'd much appreciate any kind advice regarding this very small but not-easy-to-solve tech issue as follows:

well... there is a number of similar objects of every User Profile of Win7 like Recent, PrintHood, NetHood, SendTo, etc - always living in 'C:\Users\.... user name....\' folder.

all these objects look like folders but with shortcut mark on their icons, so those are neither the standard Windows folders nor the standard Windows shortcuts... well it's like a folder with shortcut i.e. link function actually, which always links to the same name full size folder located in another place of User Profile.

so now I'm keen interested on how to create back such special object named 'Recent' that was first damaged by a not good cleaning software and then manually deleted by mistake.

Note #1: of course i know that the full size folder connected to this special object has a default location as C:\Users\...user name...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent. and there is no any problem with this folder in my case. it's alive and ok.

Note #2: also I keep an understanding that it's not so difficult to repair my current User Profile by a creation of a new user profile (and this special shell object will be likely created along with other default components of this new profile) and then copy my curent profile files into the new profile, and finally delete the old one.

I've got a brand new ProDesk 600 G2 Mini, right out of the box.  I connected my wired USB keyboard, a separate USB wireless mouse, a standard VGA monitor, and an ethernet cable, and tried to boot.  When I power the unit on, I get nothing on the display and the power button blinks red, accompanied by 3 long, lower pitched beeps, then switches to white, accompanied by 2 short high pitched beeps.At first, after searching some forums, I thought it may be the VGA input.  Maybe the VGA isn't active since there's also a DisplayPort connector.  I switched to a different monitor with a DisplayPort connector, and still no joy.  I then thought it may be the keyboard and/or mouse, so I disconnected those, and started up again.  Same results.  I've popped open the case, and without disassembling the entire thing, I can't see anything that jumps out at me, indicating an issue.  I've scoured the forums for that beep code, but can find nothing related to this model and that same beep code.  Anyone have any ideas?

I bought a new laptop and it arrived yesterday. It runs Windows 8.1
I tried to log into my microsoft account, but it kept coming up with the error code 0xd0000072 and said it wasn;t able to switch from my local account to my microsoft account.
After googling it, I tried different options, such as flushing out the proxy even though I don't run on proxy, I disabled McAfee to make sure it wasn't the firewall, I signed into live and removed all trusted devices, I tried downloading the troubleshooter,which
told me my problem was that I didn't have a Microsoft account - super helpful.
Nothing seems to be working.
I then went on to trying to make a new microsoft account, but the error code still came up after all that hassle too.  
I eventually called it a night and decided I could probably just get by without it, however, when I tried to download software to install my printer, it wouldn't let me because I cannot seem to log in to my Microsoft account. 
Can anyone help?

I have my laptop hard drive partitioned as 3 separate simple volumes.

The largest partition contains WinVista and programs. The second partition contains all my data files (D drive). I've got the Documents link pointing to D:\users\don\Documents. I've got Vista configured to read my personal desktop items (the ones accessible only from my user account) from D:\users\don\Desktop. etc etc.

I've got got an automated backup that backs up the entire contents of my D drive nightly.

Now the question is how can I make it so that when a new user is created, the new user has the same settings?


A:Creating New User Profiles. Chg Default paths to Special Folders?

When I went from Vista to Seven, I wanted to test Easy transfer. I transferred setting (via easy transfer) from one account to a finger drive. Then to a new account. The second account was a copy of the first; desktop, setting, favorites etc. You can pick the settings that you want to tranfer. No cable is needed

As was suggested a long time ago, I have finally gotten to writing the promised review for my HDD. This is my first time reviewing anything like this, or anything for that matter :rolleyes:

Anyway, I hope you like it...

Western Digital has been making hard drives for a while now. They have always been known for their excellent build quality and superior performance. But currently, WD makes some of the best hard drives on the market. I personally favor them, as this is my 2nd Western Digital, and after 5 years, the 1st WD, a 10GB Caviar, is working wonderfully. Although hard drive reliability is purely subjective, everyone has their own experiences on the matter. There is no ?best? hard drive manufacturer, IMHO, but WD currently has the fastest drives out. Another factor to consider is that this drive is ATA100. Since ATA133 offers no real performance increase, as no drive today can give out that speed, Western Digital just decided to keep it @ ATA100.
The drive came packaged in a pretty colorful WD standard box, with two big stickers announcing it to be 120GB and w/ an 8MB cache. The drive was packaged well with an anti-static bag, and bracers to each side of the drive. WD also has the good sense to package in an IDE cable, mounting screws, a manual, a quick setup poster, and WD?s own proprietary Data Lifeguard software.
Setting itself apart from the fodder, the WD1200JB has an 8MB cache, aside from the regular 2MB. The ?standard? WD1200BB has only a 2MB... Read more

Excellent Vehementi...

My girlfriend set up an admin account to block certain websites from me. I idiotically deleted that admin account. Now I am unable to do literally anything without permission from a nonexistent account. Every time I try to run ANYTHING, it grays out the "yes" option and tells me I need to enter the administrator password. I can't even run the command prompt as an admin. When I try to do the "net user administrator /active:no" command, it gives me a system 5 error. I can't restore to a time before she ever made the admin account because it needs permission. I can't reinstall Windows because to run the tool to make a bootable USB, I need permission. And there is NO ACCOUNT to get permission from anymore. I have no idea what to do. Someone please, please help me.

Thank you.

A:Deleted admin account and now have no permission to do anything!!!!!

Hello petitejete,

You will find many threads where this problem has occurred. The only way you can resolve this is to activate the hidden Administrator account and use it to create a new admin account on your system. This will then give you back the ability you had before. The only way you can do this is to run Option 4 in the following tutorial. You will need to use the Microsoft Tech Bench rather than the Media Creation Tool to download a Windows ISO that matches your current W10 version.

Hi all,

My inbox is being filled with failed outgoing email attempts (200 in the last two days). Sometimes the emails are being send to bad address and sometimes it states the receivers' spam filter are rejecting it. I am with rogers/yahoo. Is this malware on my end?


A:Email being send from account without my permission

I have seen this happen a couple times before with my clients. Typically one of two scenarios is happening.

Firstly, somehow your account password has become compromised and they spammer is logging in and trying to send mail directly from your account or secondly they are spoofing your email, meaning that they are sending spam out from another server somewhere and using your email address as the address it is coming from hence when the messages fail and the bounce back is sent, you receive it in your mailbox.

I would change your email password just to be on the safe side and usually the failed emails will stop after a few days.

Also, I would suggest you do a full virus scan of your computer as well as scan your computer for any malware.

I right clicked on a file and saw a permission for Account Unknown.

It is inheriting permissions.
How do I remove it?
Not just from that file, from all of my computer.

As an extra question, how can I make my router firewall more effective? I can get on the router page on the web, but what kind of options can I choose?
(I already have Comodo on my computer).

One more question, some files on my computer has allowed "Users" full access. How can I see all of those files, and give users "read" access or non-access. (I am the only user on the computer and I am the administrator. Just worried a bit about security).


A:Account Unknown Permission Removal

Click Orb, Right click on Computer and click Manage. Expand "Local Users & Groups" then click on Groups. On the right hand pane, go into Administrators or Users. You will see the Security Identifier (SID) from your picture above. Just remove the account. It is either an account that existed on the computer previously, or an account which belongs to a network (a corporate environment). If the computer is not connected to the corporate network then it won't be able to translate the SID to the Display Name.

I'm the only user on this laptop and my admin account was called "HybridPC" and I disabled the windows login screen. (Turn computer on and goes right to desktop). One day the welcome screen popped up out of nowhere and I had to login. I tried disabling the login screen to where it was before and now I've screwed things up royally. I cannot login to my original admin account or find it. All the files are still there on my C:\Users\HybridPC folder, but I've lost the profile and user.
I think I messed things up further by trying to create/delete other new user accounts. I've attached 3 screenshots showing my C:users folder, User account screen and the netplwiz.exe profiles.

I've been adding/deleting and can't get back to square one. I don't see my user at all on the welcome screen.
Thanks for your help!

Top User Folder is new today and odd looking as I was attempting to fix on my own.

A:User Profile/Account problem (can't login to original admin account)

Hello tytlyf, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Let's start to see if you disabled or deleted your "HybridPC" by using the tutorial below to get details about all accounts on your computer while you are logged in to your "Admin" account, then post back with them. Afterwards, we can go from there.

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 have a local user account that comes up as the default user when Windows10 boots up that I would like to remove.

I have tried the usual user modification menus but this account does not show up. It is annoying to have to go through this false log in every time I start the computer.
