XP-can't change users-does not show all users.

Q: XP-can't change users-does not show all users.

When windows starts up, I have both users on the screen.But, when I go to log out of one to another,I don't have a choice of users. It will only allow me to log off only without having a choice to log into to 2 users? Help.

Preferred Solution: XP-can't change users-does not show all users.

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.)

I am cleaning a laptop out and i created a brand new user name. I deleted the other 2 users using the control passwords2.

So the machine starts and i select the user. Process usage is very high and it says 50, but actual user shows about 9. I click show processes from all users and i find the culprit as well as 50 processes. I deleted the users so there shouldnt be that option.

Why is there more processes if this is the only user, why does it even have the option?

A:Show processes from all users, with no other users

All users includes not only other users, if any but the System as well.

I have been having problems with Media Center, not downloading the guide.  I have been trying to follow all of Microsoft's recommendations for a fix.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.  The advice told me to go into Services and find two files on the list and make sure they were both started:

Windows Media Center Receiver Service (was started), and
Windows Media Center Scheduler Service (wasn't started, I started it).
Then it told be to go to Show Processes from all Users.  And find six files on the list.  The instructions assumed the files would be there.  Only one of the files is. 
How do I get the missing five files on the list?:
ehmsas.exe (missing)
ehrecvr.exe (on the list)
ehsched.exe (missing)
ehschell.exe (missing)
ehtray.exe (missing)
mcGlidHost.exe (missing)

Microsoft's directions assumed that these files would all be there.  It did not say what to do if any were missing.

I have 3 users set up on my PC. I see all 3 on the logon screen. I can sign on to each one. Up until last night, I could see all 3 when exploring the c-drive. Now, all I see is 1 of them. This is what I see under Users:

ADMIN <--this is an administrator account.

ADMIN is the only user I see. I can see it while logged on to each account. I have an online backup service which used to see all of the users and backed them up. Last night, it couldn't find them. What could have happened? Should I try restoring to the last restore point? Thanks.

A:Users exist, but don't show up.

Hello Alant,

A restore point dated before this happened would be a good first option to try to fix this with.

I've seen a few posts with this problem but none of the suggestions have helped (short of reformatting the hard drive and going through a reinstall to include all drivers and software.

I am trying to assist a friend. Due to other issues she was having with her stand-alone (i.e., not networked) Gateway 500SE PC, about two weeks ago I completely reformatted her hard drive, reinstalled Windows XP, reinstalled all her software and drivers, and ran Microsoft update to ensure everything was current. She indicated that she hadn't changed anything since then but when she turned her computer on this morning, no users were displayed in the Windows Log-on screen.

I tried to use the Control-Alt-Delete sequence (twice) to bring up a user log-in screen but entering either of the two user names (one of which has no password) resulted in a dialog indicating an incorrect domain.

Then I tried boot in the Safe mode but the process led to a request for the Administrator Password. No Administrator password is set but hitting "ENTER" gets rejected as an invalid password.

I tried repairing XP using her install disk but after running that process, I had the exact same issue - no users listed on the log-on page.

This is about the third time in the past year that she has had this exact same problem with her computer so I'm spending more time on it reformatting and reinstalling than she is using it for Web access and e-mail (her primary requirements).

Hey Guys,

If you are using Kaspersky on Windows XP, and your Blue Shift is not working, I may have a solution for you. If you go into Kapersky, go to My Security Zone and then application activity. Go to Category and then click all. Scroll down until you find everything to do with Blue Shift ( Half Life Launcher, installation etc). Right click on each of these and change the status to Trusted. The game should work now. I hope this helps I've had the problem for a while and it was driving me nuts. I'd also like to thank the user "fragger" for giving me the idea to look at Kaspersky. If your reading this, hope it helps you out buddy.

Can anyone help me regain Security Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder which I lost while looking at the access rights. I mistakenly closed the box while playing with the access rights and lost any access to the file.
I pulled the access rights to the file using icacls they are below.

I am thinking I can change the information in the file and restore it. Not sure exactly what to change?

I was also thinking I could pull the info from another computer running with the same operating system and reapply them to this file? Would this work?

I looked at Previous Versions of the upper level folder. Can I restore a previous version of this whole folder? Will it restore the Application Data folder with the prior permissions?

User 1 logs in and works does whatever... Doesn't log out but screensaver goes back to user screen. 
User 2 logs in (switching users - not logging out user 1) and gets to work. 
Sometime later (ie. not right away) and not at a prescribed time, the network stops working.  
I try to disable / enable the network adapter and the machine freezes.   Reboot fixes problem.
If user 1 or user 2 is the only one logged in then never a problem.
Anyone heard of this? 
Thanks for any help!

A:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

working with vista homeprem sp2 32bit here. ran a quick avast scan a few minutes ago, it caught some small-time junk in the temporary internet files (which were purged easily enough), but it also pointed out C:\users\all users as "the system cannot find the path specified". so I open up windows explorer and try to go there. cue the "refers to a location that is unavailable" error message. now, I don't usually need to prod around in there so I'm not familiar with what normally happens, but I know vista loves to have a bunch of directories displayed that are shortcuts it uses for people who leave "hide protected OS files" checked (I don't, I want to see what's where) which really ought to not be shown when you're not hiding stuff but I digress, that's for MS to be groused at after win8 flops.

Hi everyone,

I am the web masters of a local snowmobile club and our new website is having a few problems with printing. Please take a look at the site, http://www.strathroysnoblizzards.com/Strathroy_Sno-Blizzards/index.html

As you can see it has a black background which when printed on my Mac OS X has no problems with printing (it leaves out black background and keeps the text and images) and prints everything.

The problem is that one of our members are ticked that they can not print the site because of the black showing up above the text and images and I really don't want to change the background because it look good the way it is, so is there any way to change to printer settings or some ideas for him to help him out with this problem.

Second problem is that out of 4 pages, 2 are blank with nothing on it and there is suppose to be text and images on those pages, anyway how to fix this too?

Thanks Guys

I'm not one to recommend messing with the registry, and I can't tell you where exactly to change the setting you want to change, but I *can* tell you that HKCU stands for HKCurrentUser. That means the setting will only change for the person modifying the registry, as he/she is the "current user."

My home pc (Win7 Ultimate) is part of my business domain, but I also have local user accounts for my wife and kids.

At the login screen there is a icon for the last user that logged in and another labeled "Other Users" for the rest of the users, so that if a different user needs to login they have to select "Other Users" then enter the DOMAIN/USERID and password to logon.

Is there a way to have it show all three users with their icons at the login screen so they can just click their icon and enter their password (all have passwords) to logon. Getting them to enter the DOMAIN/USERID correctly everytime is a challenge since the slash has to go the correct way and the domain name is somewhat long.

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

Hi, everyone...

I'm trying to find a registry hack or something to address the change Microsoft made going from Windows 8.x to Windows 10.

Here is a quick run-down of what Microsoft changed:

My wife and I have 4 children. One of our PCs is used by all of the children. There are 5 Microsoft accounts set up on that PC, one for each of the children plus one that I have set up as the Admin account.

Windows 8.x indicated on the Sign-in Screen which users were already logged/signed in. So, if the Sign-in Screen was displayed, you could see right there if anyone was signed into their account. For example, if 2 of the 5 accounts on our PC were already signed in, then right there on the Sign-in Screen below the picture and name of those 2 users that are already signed in, it says "Signed in" for each of those 2 users. You know right there at the Sign-in Screen if anyone is already signed in that might need to sign out before a restart or shutdown.

Windows 10 removed this information/indication. If you are already signed into an account, then you can look and see which users (if any) are signed in and there is no guesswork needed. However, if you are at the Sign-in Screen and want to restart or shutdown the PC while one or more users are signed in, then you are told users are signed in but have no idea which users are signed in. The only way to know which users are signed in is to sign into one of the accounts and find out.

I created a new image using Win XP Pro (32bit)and made my profile the default user profile on a stand alone computer. My profile includes our company logo as the desktop background. My user account has full admin rights. When a user with non-admin rights logs in - the logo does not appear as the desktop background. When I go to display properties and click on desktop, the company logo is already selected as the background.

However, if I delete the user's profile and they log back in the logo disappears once again.
Any user account with admin rights sees the logo, those without admin rights don't. Non-admins have to go to display properties and click OK for the image to appear on their desktop.

I am trying to change the registry to show hidden files/extensions.
This is for an unattended install, so I don't want to do it manually for each user. I know I can change the registry for the current user, but I can't seem to find out how to do this system wide. I need to show hidden files and file extensions for all users, such as when a new user account is created, extensions and hidden files are shown.

Is there a way to do this system wide?

Hidden (Value=1) & HideFileExt(HideFileExt=0) to the below locations in the registry


I read that if you change HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\NoHidden & HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\HideFileExt to the above values it should change the default key for HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced (Hidden & HideFileExt)

A:Hiding Users' files from Guest Users

OK this appears to be a simple permissions issue.

go to your root folder on the D: drive and right click the folder and select properties.

on the security tab you should see a list of those who have access to the folder - Make sure that your user has full rights and remove all rights to the "everyone" user group. This when OK'd should xascade down to all files and folders contained in the folder

If you wish you can adjust the rights available to any other particular user on the system - Make sure that you do not remove or change any rights given to system or administrative users unless you fully understand the result

One of my customers is having a problem with AOL not letting him change his user name. He says every time he wants to log in under a different name, he has to uninstall and reinstall AOL. I had it at my shop giving it a good cleaning (he had virus and spyware trouble), and it worked fine here while on connecting to DSL. And I didn't notice any problems connecting with dial-up from here. I purged all the AOL folders and all references to AOL in the registry.

He is running Windows 98 (SE I think but I've slept since...), AOL 8.0, AntiVir, and ZoneAlarm. He uses dial-up to connect, and I'm pretty sure he has a crappy connection. I have tried to get him to call the phone company to have his lines checked, but he is a bit thick.

A:Can't change users in AOL

Hi, One thing I see a lot with AOL users who have had spyware/trojans...their password, usually those users who have it "saved" so they do not type it in each time...has been modified...you may not see this at the login screen, but you will on the Properties sheet for the Dialup connection in DUN...the new one, if it has been modified, is about 10 to 13 dots (which is what you see, not an identifiable character) when I had the user delete this, and type in the correct p-word, the connection worked a whole lot better... (Their real password was for example... only 6 letters/numbers)
Usually end up reinstalling AOL, getting updated phone numbers, etc. More than one screen name password can be changed...check them all.
If they use AIM, check the profile for a script that sends a bad hyperlink to all who click on the profile> lots of bad stuff going around in IM profiles these days.

Now, I would like to warn you about some things. Whenever you delete an user's account, all his settings and files will be lost. So make sure you have everything backed up before you mess things up.

Your second problem probably needs some more explanation. You said that when he logged into his account, MSN would automatically start up. Does this happen in your account too or just in his account? If it happens in his account, then deleting the account will simply get rid of the problem too. But if it occurs in both the accounts, then it is a common setting in MSN that you must find and change. Hope that helps. Good Luck.

Does anyone out there know how to change the computer owners name. I'm not asking about the users name, but I need the one you type in when you first format the hard drive and XP prompts you for the owners name.
I use Windows XP Home, SP-2.
Thank you

Changing the name requires an edit of the registry.Ensure you understand what you are doing as serious damage could occur otherwise.Also ensure you backup and save a copy of the registry first in case you would have to restore it.Check out this link on how to change the name > http://www.worldstart.com/tips/tips.php/1613

Hey guys, I set up my computer using my live account and it had my old name "BinLuen" when I made this live account a while ago. I want to change it (already changed it in my live account), but obviously I don't think it would reflect the change after win 8 has already been set up. Is there any way I could change it?


A:How to change my C:\Users\... name?

Hello jh, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The best way to do this would be to switch your current account to a local account, add a new local user account with the name you want, change the new account type to be an administrator, sign out of the old account, sign in to the new account, switch the new account to be a Microsoft account, copy any shortcuts or files (music, documents, etc...) from the old account into your new account, then delete the old account when ready.

Hope this helps,
