Preferred Solution: Solved: Script errors trying to access User Accounts.............

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.)

Ive nearly finished my DB, just adding the finishing touches.

Ive just set up the secuirty and ive noticed something that concerns me.

Staff users (Non admin users) have the ability to change the account password though use of a button on the menu form which opens the User and Group Accounts menu (Access menu).

What concerns me is that although they can only alter their own account password, they can view the user names and groups of all the other users. Is there some way I can set it up so they can only change their password and nothin else. ie only the Change Logon Password tab should be availiable.?

Does anyone have any ideas of how this can be done?

This is a sony vaio laptop. I don't think the model matters as this is an OS problem. I enabled the Administrator account; but, that doesn't help. I can boot the system into Windows and view all the file and folder names without a problem; but, I cannot copy any files to an external drive or to any other place on the hard disk. Access is denied on everything. I cannot create folders or save even a text file that I create. Access denied.

If I boot using a BartPE disk, the hard disk doesn't show up in the file manager at all. All that shows is my external USB drive as drive C and the DVD as drive D.

I need to copy all the user data to a backup device so I can then run factory system recovery.

Any suggestions?

You can try dial-a-fix. Its magical for this kind of problems. Dial-a-fix will put many of your registry entries to Windows default state. You need admin rights for it.


Read carefully first, then download and run it ONLY if you understand clearly what would it do and if you can take all the previous actions suggested.

Good luck!

Internet Explorer 7 runs just fine within my Administrator account, but after setting up a new limited user account for my daughter I now get many "Internet Explorer Script Errors" with a box containing no details. It usually pops up when I try to access one of the Administrative Tools applets such as "Services" or "Events viewer" or something similar. Sometimes it just pops up on the desktop.
It appears to be rights related because again, no such problems appear in the administrator account. I've tried setting up other brand new accounts and the same thing happens.....
I've tried disabling script debugging, notification of script errors, subinACL, reregistering XML .dlls, etc.
I've googled and googled and lots of people have this same problem. Lots of suggestions, but nothing seems to work.
I'm confident I have no malware. My system:

A:Cannot Access User Accounts XP

I bought a new computer with Windows XP service pack 2.

I can't access user accounts. I can't edit account, can't add new account etc... because "user accounts" window is not display well. it is display like this.(refer the attach pic).

What can I do for this? Please help me.

A:Cannot Access user accounts

Did you edit Internet Explorer's security settings to a higher level than the default? On rare occasions this can cause User Accounts or other Windows programs not to work correctly. I had this happen once w/ McAfee.

Disconnect from the net and then try setting IE's Internet Zone security settings to medium and see if you can get in. If you can't, post back. Either way, before you reconnect to the net raise IE's security settings back up to a higher level so you are safe online.

Ok here?s my problem.

Just recently I had problems with my modem and internet connection, its all sorted now except that my wife can?t access the internet in the normal way via her user account, she logs on to windows, starts AOL but the connection gets timed out straight away and the screen freezes. The only way to get out of this is to bring up task manager and stop everything.

The strange thing is if I change her account to administrator (she was always a limited account) everything is fine ? no problems at all. Or she can sign on to windows as me, then open AOL and sign on that way. She just can?t access the Internet using her own account.

As far as I am aware I haven?t made any changes to the set-up. I did run the AOL set up disc during my modem problems, as I had to re install the drivers but apart from that no changes at all.

I don?t really want to give all the users administrator accounts but at present it seems that?s the only way they can access the internet

My OS is Windows XP and my ISP AOL version 9

Thanks for any suggestions

Now I've just gotten my computer back from the fix-it guy.
My monitor had bust, so I went out and bought a brand spanking new Acer 23".
The new monitor works fine now, and as far as the fix-it guy's concerned so's my computer.

However, upon turning my computer back on, it booted reguarily, but when it gets to the Welcome Screen for the XP OS (Click a user name to begin), there are no user names.

I access the alternate log-in method with CTRL+ALT+DELETE x2, and I enter the details fix-it guy told me to put it, and it says they're incorrect no matter how many times I try.

He's convinced that it's my monitor that disallows the viewing of user accounts, but I think he's full of it.

So I was hoping someone here would be able to come up with a way that I can access windows and avoid this log-on thing.
If I could just access Windows once, then I would create an account and everything would be fine and dandy, but I can't.
I've tried running in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, but nothing seems to work.
I've been reluctant to do a system restore since that's what fix-it guy did, and I don't want to do anything unnecessary.

And thus I'm here, since fix-it guy refuses to help.

I think you think right. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

I'd have him prove that his Monitor can show accounts, and have him explain just what evil software was installed on the monitor to selectively erase the user tiles from the welcome screen.

Even if that was possible, doesn't explain the fact that the account info he gave you doesn't work on the Classic login screen.

Sure hope you paid with a credit card. I'd have them reverse the charge, and tell the fix it guy he doesn't get paid until he fixes it correctly.

Have you tried in Safe Mode?

Only other thing I can think of is if he didn't actually set a password on the Builtin Administrator account.

Type in Administrator and leave the password blank and see if you can get in that way.

A:Unable to Access User Accounts

Read other 8 answers

Am running XP home and don't usually bother with all the security malarky as there's only me uses comp. However, created a second user id in case people wanted to use my comp, rather than them mess mine up. No problems there. However, for some reason I took it into my head to password protect my main account. I also remember choosing an option somewhere along the line (can I hell remember where, but I think it was during the whole password process) in which I can stop my files being seen/accessed by people using other accounts on my machine (even though the second account is an admin account too).

Anyway...even though I've taken the password stuff off now, I still cannot access my main account from my second account...which is a real pain as I cant transfer files between the two. In explorer, the main account (whilst logged into the second account) is just a folder and if I try to open it I get the message "Documents and Settings/**My name** not accessible. Access denied."

How do I get cross account availability again ? Can I revert my main account to being aceessible from any account again ? Where the hell is that option to hide files at ? I tried doing the same whilst creating my second account (don't ask me why) and the option never came up !!!

Help...I'm going mad !!!!

A:Access Denied between user accounts !

Right click on My Documents, and then the "sharing tab" and it tells you what to do there.

You can make files hidden individually by right-clicking on them, or to hide them in explorer go to "tools", "folder options" then the "view" tab, then uncheck "show hidden files and folders"

A:User accounts have no drive access

You can try to check/change the drive permissions but if you have XP Home, you will have to do it in Safe Mode. Right click on the drive and then select Properties then the Security tab and check that the other users are listed as having access to the drives...if not, click Add then Advanced then Find Now and select the users from the list and then click OK twice. Then put the ticks in the choices for Allow level (i.e full control, read, write, modify etc) then click Apply then ok.

Reboot and log on as another user and try again :)

I was having trouble with Windows XP, so I used the recovery software that was included with my computer. It seems to have worked fine, and I don't think I've lost any files. However, when I ran the recovery program, it created a new user account for me. Now when I start the computer, the old account isn't even displayed on the welcome screen. So, for example, the old directory was C:\Documents and Settings\flans and the new one is C:\Documents and Settings\flans.computername. All my files are still in the old directory, I just don't know how to log in to that account.

Oh, and I don't know if this is relevant, but none of the programs I have installed are appearing in the 'Add or Remove Programs' window. I know they're still on the computer, though, because I can open them...

However, when i go to control panel and user accounts, i get a message saying "an error has occurred in the script on this page" and "do you want to continue running scripts on this page?" with a "Yes" and a "No" box underneath. no matter how many times i click on either the yes or no boxes, the message won't go away, and so i cant access my user accounts, and the only way to get rid of the box is to log out or shut down.

Hi there! I'm new to the forum --- I hope I'm not rehashing something that's already been addressed --- didn't see it in there already anyway.
My 14 yr. old son recently bought his own computer. (We wouldn't let him install and play games on ours after having had "kid goo" all over it and a full hard drive in the past)
At any rate -- we don't want him to have unlimited access to his PC games when we are not there. We've had problems in the past with homework not being completed, etc --- its just too big a temptation if he knows he can sneak it in when we're not around and he's supposed to be working on something else).
On his last computer I attempted to set up a separate user account --- with the administrator account having the games, (so that we'd have to sign him on) and the other account having access to the things he would need to work on his homework, such as Word and Powerpoint. This way he could still get on the computer and knock out his homework before we get home from work.
However I never could figure out how to keep the "limited" account from being able to access the games. And if I installed a game in administrator, it would automatically install it in the other user account too.
Surely there's a way to do this. If yall can help, I'll be ETERNALLY grateful!

Just installed XP Service Pack 2. Everything seemed fine until I realized that upon bootup, I can only get into 2 of the 5 User Accounts I have set up. After successfully getting into the two of them (and they can vary depending on what I click on first and second), when I click Windows+L to quick switch and I click a third account icon, nothing happens. If I reboot, the cycle will repeat, allowing me to get into the first two accounts I try. If I don't find a solution, I'll wnd up backing out of SP2.

well the solution is simple uninstall SP2 and wait for SP2a or use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on xp and save all the settings for those account, you can then delete those account and re created then and use the files transfer wizard to restore the accounts get the idea ?

I'm trying to access the user accounts function in the control panel. When I click on it, I get a popup box which says 'unspecified error'.

Please help!

P.S I should add that this function worked previously. I have 4 accounts defined on this system. All have passwords. Other behavior which has been occuring for a while now is if the system has been sitting idle for a while, and the screen is back to the login screen, When we click on a userid to log in , The message 'wrong password' is displayed, no matter that the password is being entered correctly. Capslock is NOT on. Restarting the system resolves the problem, until the next time the system sits idle. Annoying and now troubling since I can't access user accounts.

My laptop has two user accounts (me and my wife) with administrative privileges and a third user with guest privileges. I am using Windows XP SP2. Lets say I am logged in and want to access some file located under "My Documents" from my wifes account. The only way I can do this is to log out of my account and log into my wifes account. I am tired of this switching, is there a simpler way. I don't want to merge the accounts. Users account settings do not give me an choice to do this.

I noticed that in Win Vista, you can access files from a different users account if both of them have administrative privileges.

Please advice.


A:Access between two user accounts with administrative privileges in Win XP

hello ,

when setting up your accounts up did you make them private ?

if so then you may have to make your files on both accounts as shared with all users , i have not have done this in a while , i will do the research and get back to you , but in case some one has an alternative method try it !!

i beleive you must do this thru the hidden administrtor account that is in safe mode , for this account is the one that controls both of the accounts on your system

OS: WinXP Home edition
I have user accounts for each family member.
We have a single mailbox with an ISP (e.g. mailboxname.domain.com) into which email for all users is directed. MSOutlook is set-up with rules so that as email is downloaded from the mailbox it is filtered by name into the appropriate user Outlook account. (thus: [email protected], [email protected] [email protected]). Fairly basic stuff.
Unfortunately number two daughter decided to change her password and in doing so also took advantage of setting her account to "private". Needless to say this stuffed the Outlook filter rules from directing her email to her Outlook account! However, even though we reset her account not to be private this did not reverse the access control to her Outlook account and the rules operating in all the other accounts to direct email to her on download still do not work because they cannot open the appropriate folder(s).
Anyone encountered this? Anyone know how we might solve it so that we can revert to the original situation?

I have tried the recovery console but the installation is not found. I STUPIDLY did not make a a recovery disk when I upgraded to SP4. I did do a parallel install to another directory (WINNT2) and able to reboot my system (using it now!). The user accounts are displayed when I do directory search through 'c:\Documents and Settings" and they're all there but I don't know how to reactivate/backup/restore/whatever them to be able to use them again. They are not displayed in 'Computer Management' either.

Can I save myself here with your help?

I have a secured (user-level security) Access 2000 database.

I created a User Group called "Admin User". More or less, this User Group has access to just about the entire database... Similiar to the "Admins" User Group that Access creates.

My question is how do I grant access to my "Admin User" Group so they can grant (or take away) access to the end-users (ie "User and Group Accounts)?

I know I can give the Users in my "Admin User" Group the "Admins" permissions (created by Access), but then they would be able to edit my permissions (the creator)... which I don't want.

Any suggestions for this?

Recently we went from dialup to broadband satellite. We have one computer using Windows XP Home SP2. since then we have had trouble accessing email but only on one account. As the administrator, I have no trouble accessing web sites and logging onto email, but the other user can only access web sites. When he tries to log on to his email he gets "Page cannot be displayed". When I try to log onto my email using his account, I also cannot log on. I went through the steps in the earlier tutorial. No good. I spoke to my ISP. Big runaround, nobody knows nothin' except that it has something to do with the administrator "sharing physically" with the subsidiary account. I got referred to a Microsoft forum. Since this is the forum where I have actually understood what I've read, I wondered whether you might be able to help instead, thanks, Margaret

Hi all,

I'm not really sure when this problem started, but as the admin account and only real user (I set up another account to test my problems) on my HP Laptop, I cannot access the user accounts on my computer. I've tried to access them multiple ways, including through the control panel and directly through the start menu, but when I try to click on anything having to do with the user accounts on my pc, nothing happens. So I am unable to change my password, change my picture, or add or remove other accounts. It's almost like I'm not an administrator. However, according to multiple places on my computer, my account is still an administrator. Also, some programs do not launch unless I chose to launch them as an admin by right clicking, is that normal?

So to summarize my situation, I don't think my admin account is giving me proper access to my computer, limiting the things I can do.

Does anyone have an idea of what has happened or how I can fix it?

Reboot and got to safe mode (press F8 during boot).
Login as Administrator (no password).

Open Control Panel, User Accounts.
Check you account and make sure it's still setup correctly.

I have three user accounts on my home computer running on XP, my wives, my nieces, and mine. Well last week, my computer got seriously infected with a horrible piece of spyware put out by Ezula, which took me forever to get rid of (and I'm not sure its completely gone). In the process, I was in all sorts of areas of the computer, including my Zone Alarm blocked sites, and the Windows Registry. Well after I did that, which was within my wives user account on XP, my niece and I can no longer access the internet via our user accounts, but my wife can. Any suggestions? I have a cable internet connection, and I have searched within all the routine XP/IE internet setup areas for connectivity, and they are all the same on each user account. One last thing, while attempting to do the fix within my wives account, I shut off the "Windows Restore.," so not sure if that could effect it.

Hello, i m using Win7 Home Premium 64b, and till a few days back, i was enjoying a trouble free OS with a Standard User , along with an Admin one, where i always use the standard user account.
When installing and uninstalling softwares(in the standard user account), it will ask for Administrative Password, and once i enter it, it will be done. But since a couple of days back , if i try to install a new software , or use a software which requires Admin Authentication, instead of asking me Admin Password, it is giving me an error, saying "Administrative Rights Required, Log into the Administrative Account and try ". but this is irritating, as i require to log in into the admin account everytime, i need to use the application. What could possibly have gone wrong. How do i solve it?? Need help.
Thanks in advance

I fell for the Windows 7 Security Virus, but immediately checked it out once I was able to access the Internet and realized what I had done.  I downloaded and ran SpyHunter 4 which seemed to remove it from my admin account, but my other user accounts aren't working.  I have since run a full system scan with Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyHunter, but no virus or malware is showing.
I can actually log on to the accounts, but all I get is the spinning circle.  I am not able to open any programs, shut down, restart, etc.  The only thing I'm able to do is click on Switch User and when I do the monitor goes right to sleep and I can't wake it up.  The only way I'm able to get back to my account is to do a manual shut down and then restart.  I also created a new user account and the same thing happens.  The new user account is an admin account and the others are standard accounts.
The only account I'm able to access without any problem is my admin account.  Do I still have the virus or did it change something?  Appreciate your help!

I received a message that I had logged into a temporary account and in order to save my work I had to change users.

The problem is: I cannot do ANYTHING. If I log off and try to log on as a different user, the only active icon is my regular account (david) and the ADMIN icon is grayed out. I cannot access User Accounts; I cannot log into Safe Mode; I cannot access msconfig.exe; I cannot do a system restore, I cannot change anything in REGEDIT; I cannot install a program.

For almost anything I try to do, I get a window that says, ?Do you want to allow XXXX to make changes to your computer?? and the ?YES? button is grayed out.

There are six temporary user accounts. Five are empty, the sixth one appears to be the one I?m logging into. When I log off and try to switch users, the sixth one does not have an icon.

I have a SATA USB drive attached that has some of my programs. Now, when I boot, Windows usually does not recognize it. Sometimes, it does. When it does not, I can access many of the programs on it by going to \users\david\desktop\startup. David is my user name

Hi .... I am having inconsistences with setting up multiple user accounts so they can access only certain applications. For example User1 can see only APP "A" and "B", User2 can see only App "C". This works usually if when I install a new APP when logged in as specific User. However I have a situation where APPS have already been installed and they are viewable/accessible across both User1 and User2. So I go in via control panel and uninstall the specific app and re-install it on User1 only. When I check both users can still see and access the APP. I am not sure what I have done wrong, or I just do not understand how this should work ?
Any ideas or feedback is greatly appreciated.

Prior to setting up a laptop as a 'family' unit with 3 different User accounts, I (administrator) installed programs which allowed access by 'all users of the computer'.

I have the 'Adminstrator' privileges.
The other 3 User accounts have been assigned 'Limited' accounts.

How do I 'take back' control of specific programs that I dont want the 'limiteds' to mess around with.

Hope I am being clear in what I would like to implement?

A:Changing user accounts access to existing programs

There is a program included within XP that allows very detailed control of users, though I'm not 100% its on XP Home, I have XP MCE, which is based on Pro... Type "gpedit.msc" into "Run." The Group Policy config utility should come up. If it does, do the following:

Expand "User Configuration" in the tree on the left, then expand "Administrative Templates" and click on "System." This should bring up a list on the right of settings. Among these you should be able to find "Don't Run Specified Windows Applications."

Once you have found that, double click on it. Then select the "Enable" radio button. This will allow you to click the "Show" button in the box below it. Click on the "Show" button. Then click "Add" on the right. Type in the name of the program, such as "WinWord.exe". Click OK and then apply. Repeat for more than one program. If this is done correctly, it should bring up an error of "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" when someone tries to run said program. This restricts the program on the account that it is done on, but I haven't tested it on a multiple user PC as I don't have one so if it doesn't suit you don't do it =P.

P.S. If someone knows a reason why this idea could cause problems, that I do not know of, pipe up! :)
