Hi all,

Im not sure if anyone else has had this problem or noticed it, but I have enabled the GPO prevent users from adding files to the root of thier users files folder on our network as we use folder re-directs to my documents which in theory should keep everything tidy. This works up until a point, if I try and browse to the location and create a file I cant. If I try and drag a file into that location I cant, but as soon as I try to save as it lets me - any ideas why this would be?

i copied a portion of my sys32 folder to my cdrw drive because i'm stupid. and i wanted to see if i could use it to alter my sys32 on my other machine. don't ask.

yeah, i soon realized the folder's write protected and i can't burn the foler, or delete the copy. now i can't burn anything unless i use a different profile.

i tried properties > uncheck read only. i'm guessing the answer lies somewhere in folder options.

My comp kept getting a "failed to load operating system" message when attempting to boot. I ran the FIXBOOT command from the windows CD's recovery console.

Now it starts to load but wont boot because it says its missing "l_ntl.nls". So I got the 6kb file from another comp running 2000 and put it on a floppy to put on the hard drive. In the windows CD's recovery console, I type

According to the windows.microsoft.com website "Your user account prevents anyone who is using a standard account on your computer from seeing your files." My wife and I share our computer: I have an administrator account and she has a standard user account. Yet when she is logged in she can access my documents and read them via File Explorer, though she cannot delete them. This seems to contradict what Microsoft say or am I missing something? Grateful for any advice.

Since writing the above I have found that the same situation exists on the other computer that we share, but in this case she is able to delete the documents as well.

Sorry, everyone, I think I've solved this. I must have set particular sharing permissions and forgotten I'd done so.

My Windows 8.1 PC had always run like a charm, when suddenly it began doing all sort of strange things, such as concurrently shutting down multiple apps as I was working in them. So I tried to restore to a Macrium Reflect image from October, but the restore failed. I tried older images; they failed too. Even my HP Recovery Media failed. So I did a Reset to my original PC from January 2014, and spent a day and a half doing almost 2 years' worth of Windows Updates and reinstalling programs.

I have an Administrator user named Leah and a Standard user named Layie. As I'd had it set up before, in the administrator account, I merged the Documents folders from Leah, Layie and Public into one library. To avoid confusion, I renamed each of the My Documents folders, so they won't all have the same name. I.e. Leah Documents, Layie Documents, and Public Documents. I did the same for the three Desktop folders and the three Downloads folders.

It looks fine in the administrator user. However, in the standard user, I have a folder named C:\Users\Layie\Layie Documents; but under This PC, File Explorer refers to this same folder as Leah Documents! (Layie Desktop and Layie Downloads don't have this problem.) Either way, this Documents folder contains the files for Layie, not the files that are in the real Leah Documents. This messed-up name seems to confuse some applications, such as Outlook. It's probably rather confusing to whoever is reading this, too. I've tried messing with advanced sh... Read more

Hi there,
I have 2 accounts on my Vista Home Premium machine. One is an admin account with password and the other is a standard account without password (UAC off). I have multiple internal hard drives some of which has folders that I want only my admin account to access. I have denied all permissions for the standard account to these folders.
When I login as the standard user and try to open these same folders I get a pop up message saying that I don't have permission to access them and to click “continue” for access. Then I get a second message saying the same thing but there is a clickable link at the bottom to the "security tab" and it's suggesting to use to gain access. Once I click on that I get another "You don't have permission to change security setting" message in the folder properties window under the security tab. At the bottom of that window it's also suggesting to click on the "Advanced" button for special permissions which will lead to taking the ownership from the admin account under the "Owner" tab by clicking "Edit", thus allowing full access to the contents of those folders.
Does that make sense to anyone?
I also noticed that the standard account has the ability to change the type to an administrator account from “User Accounts” in Control panel, is that normal?

I can't seem to simply create a second user who has no access to files/programs on the computer by default. From what I read, that's supposed to be the default behavior? When I try it, the new 'Standard user' account can see all programs and files. I haven't previously changed permissions or anything on this PC.

A:Standard User Account - File/pgm access

In the User Account - Create you should be able to use Parental controls to limit programs and file access (although I haven't had to do so myself)

You should be able to create a standard user accounts on your computer and reserve administrator permissions for your user account, you’ll have to type your account’s password whenever a standard user wants to install or access restricted programs.

After that I believe you can right click on any application and set the permissions (or disallow run)

You could also use Group Policy Editor - Quickly View Enabled Policies in Windows

If you have Windows Ultimate you could also use AppLocker - Create New Rules

Hi,

I just went through your query. As far as I know a standard user should be able to play or view the contents in a cd unless your company has a separate win 7 image or polices. But if the cd automatically runs; ie autorun.exe then it might ask for admin password. The best way to check that would be to play an audio CD

My friend recently bought a new Windows 8 laptop which she set up in her name and therefore has a passworded Admin account. I also partitioned the HD so that the smaller portion (C) contains the OS and the larger portion (D) is for all her files.

Since I am only using the laptop temporarily my passworded 'standard' user account is located in (C) and cannot be viewed by anybody else, however, I can view my friend's files which are now being stored in 'D'.

Is there a way to protect the files in the 'D' partition in the same manner as if all accounts were on one drive and password protected?

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 ?

Hi,

There's a way to enable admin user from command prompt but I can't use backslash because my current language for non-unicode programs is japanese which I can't change since it's blocked by group policy. I can't disable group policy because I'll need admin access.

Bottom line is, I need to delete a folder within C:\ProgramData\ however without admin access I can't do anything about it. I've tried taking the ownership of the folder but again, I'm stuck at the restrictions of standard user. Is there any way of obtaining Admin access or deleting a particular folder?

A:Standard user unable to access Administrator rights

Hello jumbovideo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you able to open an elevated command prompt? You should get a UAC prompt asking for an administrator's password when you try to approve.

If so, then you might see if you could delete the folder in an elevated command prompt.

If not, then you'll need to talk to an administrator on the computer to help you do it with their rights.

A:How can a standard user gain access to an administrator account?

My first guess would be that he knows your password, or have managed to install a keylogger program to find out what password you type. Check in Control Panel - Programs and Features if you see any newly installed program you don't recognize. And change your password. And do a full scan with your antivirus.

Some keyloggers won't show up in the list of installed programs so take a look here as well:
How to detect if a Keylogger is installed? - Microsoft Community

Some laptops have a finger scanner and come with software you can configure to use your finger instead of typing a password. Mine has this and I've set a long and difficult password so even if someone saw me typing it they wouldn't remember it. But with this feature I type this in only ONCE in the finger scanning software, and then I only use my finger. Works very well.

You certainly can restrict his access, but I wonder if you're this concerned why are you giving him access at all. His level of expertise is the issue. If he is a regular user not a geek, hacker, etc you can make all of your files, folders, etc invisible to him. you can change his rights so he cant even read them, but if he is good enough (or curious enough) he will find a way.

So what would you like to do exactly?

I'm hoping this isn't some dumb, simple little solution but I've been searching for a while and have yet to find anything matching these issues...

I've used my Win7 laptop with only one user account for years. Last night I set up 3 more accounts -- two Admin and 1 Standard (the Standard is a Visitor user that will not have privileges to browse my C: drive which, from what I have read, Guest function cannot do.)

I'm not certain what's happened to my settings over the years (I know some things were tweaked when I tried using AVG Tuneup last year) but I am having tons of problems with the original account regarding changing users:

1. The Log Off option under Shut Down is greyed out on ONLY the original user. The others function.
2. There is no Switch User option on any of the accounts (I have changed the gpedit Hide Fast Switching option to Not Configured -- it was Enabled, tried Disabled but no change, to set to Not Configured).
3. When my primary account logs off (screen saver, Lock, sleep, etc) there is no option to Switch User from the logon screen. It ALWAYS says Locked and does not provide any options aside from powering down.

So basically, the only way for me to access another account from the primary is to power down, then reboot and login to one of the others. So, simply put, what is going on and how do I fix this???

When I search for the words in the thread title I only get references to UAC.
Well, I do not think I am interested in UAC.

In Windows NT4 it was possible to take any existing account and modify/customize its access rights, per system function. As in allowing standard user Joe to be able to change date, whithout elevation. I could edit the account rights of Joe, giving or removing just about any system access.

I need to be able to give some system rights to a local standard account, without elevation. No admin password, no UAC, nothing. At the same time that standard account should not be able to access local policy or computer management or similar, other, system features.

I am admin on the computer but somehow (may be via group policy) I can not write/delete to my USB. By the way this is a corporate laptop. I tried couple of ways to fix it but couldn't manage. Is there a way to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance and best regards.

A:how do I get access to system32 folder

Hello Andrea,

If you are logged in to an administrator account, you should be able to simply copy and paste the files say on your desktop into the "C:\Windows\System32" folder. When you do, you will get a prompt to approve copying them into the folder.

You will not be able to directly copy the files from an external source into a system folder.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi

I'm trying to install Janus Components on Windows 7. The install crashes, giving me the message that "C:\Windows\system32\msvbvm60.dll" could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory"

I've logged in as administrator, run the install app as administrator and tried everything I could think of, to no avail!

Can anybody help please??

Hi I have been having trouble gaining access to my user/(user) folder to get to my app data details, if i right click there is no option to run as administrator, i havn't changed the share options but i did follow these instructions

Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

Hope that helps.


and it stated that i didn't have permissions. (as it ran through a list of items )


I then followed these instructions
Local Users and Groups Manager - Open

and in both option 1 and 3 it stated that "this computer is running windows 7 home premium. this snapin may not be used with this version of windows. to manage user accounts for this computer, use the user accounts tool in the control panel."
in option 2 the local user and groups option is not there.
as far as i am aware and in the user account option i am the only user running on this computer (and as administrator)

i am therefore at a loss and any help would be gratefull

Hello worligig,

You might see if installing and using Take Ownership may allow you to be able to access it afterwards.

Not sure what's going on here or how to fix it. I've tried every workaround I can find, and nothing works. It's a folder in my Steam directory, and even when I try to manipulate it as an administrator I can't even read access it. I also can't see permissions
on it, so I can't change those or take ownership, either.

I really need to fix this. Any ideas?

I tried several times to get full permissins over system32 folder but when i click okay it gives errors on files Qhy?

A:How can I get full access for system32 folder?

It could be the files you are trying to access are currently is use by the system. If you really need to mess with them try booting a WinPE boot usb. There is a nice free utility to create one here:
Create Bootable USB or CD/DVD based on Windows PE with AOMEI PE Builder

My Laptop is very picky about booting from USB. It has UEFI and very few USB boot creators work on it. But the one in the Link booted up with no hassle.

I recommend having a backup image of your system partition before tinkering. Just as good cautionary practice.

Please let me know if this may be security issue? Thanks.

A:System32 Folder is pinned to Quick Access. What should I do?

Hi,
 
 
This begs the question:
 
Have you tried to Unpin it?
 
 
Right click on it and select "Remove from Quick Access" is the correct action I think.
 
 
Merry Christmas,
