Script to disable/enable a user

Q: Script to disable/enable a user

Hi,

I need a script/batch file that I can click to quickly

enable/disable a user.

How can I do this?

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Script to disable/enable a user

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.)

A: Script to disable/enable a user

A one-liner bat file can do that pretty easy. This will do the trick:

To enable a user:

Code:
net user username /active:yes
To disable it:

Code:
net user username /active:no
Where username is the username to enable/disable.
This requires administrator permission to succeed.

Some reference can be found here:
Enable or Disable user account from command line (CMD)

My scenario is as is...

We have a ton of companies running windows 2008 (HP ML110G8) servers. These servers have zebra label printers installed on them. We have noticed that these printers will lock up and stop printing until the end user unplugs the device and plugs it back into the computer. It will then print and work fine. As this happens frequently, we need to find an easier way.

On our windows 2003 servers (ML110 G5), we created a devcon batch script that could run when the end user selected it. To my knowledge, devcon is not obtainable without downloading it to a 2008 server.

Is there a simple script i can use to disable a usb device in computer management?

I have looked into WMI, powershell, and other batch files. But it seems like devcon is the only way if i download it. Is there a way to install devcon within the batch file so i can install it to the directory and then run the command all at once?

Im willing to write code, i am not known to devcon

A:Disable/Enable USB Devices in Windows Manager With Script

Hi and welcome to Sevenforums!

DevCon is a stand-alone executable so no install is needed. You can extract it from a WDK(Windows Driver Kit) but make sure you get the correct version for the OS architecture.
http://blogs.technet.com/b/deploymen...evcon-exe.aspx
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...evcon-exe.aspx

If you download it and then put devcon.exe on a local file server you can have the batch file copy it to a local folder from there, before executing the devcon commands.

Hi all,

I'm setting up a computer for public access to a local site (repository). There are two accounts:

1.admin account: running a virtual machine as server for the local site. I need access to LAN through wired ethernet in this account
2.public account: the account for the users to navigate the repository. I need to disable the LAN access and just enable internet access through the public wireless interface.

I thought I could just disable ethernet card for the public account on the Group policies, but I didn't find out the way to do it. I've created a group policy for the public account; but under "user configuration -> administrative templates -> network -> network connections" I only see options for enable/disable LAN properties, settings, etc., and not LAN access itself.

---> Is it possible to disbable hardware for specifc users? In that case I could just disable the wired card driver for public user

Thanks in advance!

A:Disable LAN connection for specific user/enable wireless only

Ok, I go again (trying to do my best in english!) :

-There are two interfaces in the network:
a- LAN-> access through wired connection. Only for enabled MACs on the router
b- Public access to internet -> through wireless connection. For everyone.

-I cannot use router rules (for instance blocking MAC address, time settings, etc.) as far as I need both connections enabled at the same time, any time: wired for admin account and wireless for standard user account. Both users could use the computer at any time.

-I know I can set up preferred connections, but what I actually want is to prevent any way for the standard user to get connected to the LAN.

-On Group policies I've already disabled access to network settings and IE options for the standard user.

I appreciate any help (and really need it). Thanks!!

There previously was a password prompt if you tried to make any changes to the system under the standard user account or download any files.

I am not sure what happened but now there is no password prompt to download and execute files under either account. I have tried to loacate ?Local Users and Groups? to change the user settings but it is missing in the Computer Management?

I have even deleted my childrens account and created a new one yet we are still able to make changes to the system and download files under that profile.

I hope I am not duplicating something here. . . . I did look - Honest!

I ran into an interesting problem and found an easy fix.

First: I wanted to ENABLE AHCI because (supposedly) it improves HDD performance. (It also enables a host of other interesting features.)

I discovered the trick of setting the START paramater in the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
from "3" to "0" - and then making the switch in the BIOS.

I tried to switch back, and simply resetting this start value to "3" doesn't work.

The issue here is that there are actually TWO keys that control the IDE/AHCI interface choice:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\pciide
When the system is in IDE interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "3"
pciide's START value is "0"
When the system is in AHCI interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "0"
pciide's START value is "3"
It is entirely possible that setting the START value to zero in the key representing the interface type you wish to use, may cause the corresponding key in the other interface type to automagically switch to "3". I do not know this, nor have I tested it.

What works for me is setting both START values to the values that correspond to the interface I wish to use.

It should be trivially... Read more

A:Enable and/or Disable AHCI

Hi jharris. Welcome.






Quote:
First: I wanted to ENABLE AHCI because (supposedly) it improves HDD performance. (It also enables a host of other interesting features.)


For me, the reasons to enable AHCI are Native Command Queuing and Hot Swapping, hot swapping being the most important to me.

As far as switching back and forth, I could imagine issues arising from that (including confusion as to what mode I was running in at a given time...).

But if I needed to do it as a utility to convert drives to vhd's, I would consider a dual boot, with the AHCI disabled boot just a simple OS with whatever utilities I needed to get the job done. Keeping it simple would mean a quick boot to desktop and a small partition.

Our organization recently invested in a large batch of 250 G4 notebooks. I'm wondering if there's a way to quickly enable/disable the touchpad, modify something in our group policy, or distribute a driver update or something to allow for this option. Due to the environment many of our staff are working in (frequently out in the community or even operating off of mobile hotspots in their parked vehicle), many users don't use a mouse, but would like the option to turn the touchpad off while typing to avoid misplacing the cursor. Naturally, they'll need the ability to easily turn the touchpad back on without the use of a mouse in this case. As a result, I don't see navigating to the mouse settings to disable the touchpad as being a viable option, as they wouldn't have the ability to turn it back on when they were done typing. I'm used to seeing a Fn + F key option to disable the touchpad, but this doesn't seem to be available on this model. Is there a solution that would result in functionality with that level of simplicity? If not, what other options are there?

Hi,

noticed the other day when I was trying to minimize what I have on my C drive ssd that the pagefile took up around 11GB and I did a Google search but I don't feel that the answer I got from there enlighten-ed me at all, I'm still wondering what to do.

/BTA

A:Disable/Enable Pagefile?

You can easily change the size of the page file to something a lot smaller than 11 GB if you are concerned about space allotted to it.

Discussing whether or not to eliminate it entirely is useless. You can find opinions on either side, with each side positive that the other side is composed of morons. "I did X and haven't had any problems...........".

Would you spend much time trying to convince someone of anything about religion? If you would, then Google and experiment all you wish with the page file. Put it on some other drive, some other partition, make it any size you want, or do away with it entirely.

But don't expect to be "enlightened". Do what you want. If you don't like the results, do something else.

I use my Win Vista laptop at home and the office.

I use wifi at home and wired lan at the office. My laptop does have any settings in the TCP/IP properties. Everything is at default.

Every time I I try to use it at the office I have to disable and reenable the Lan connection from Manage networks, otherwise I do not get Net connectivity (except local lan).

No problem at home.

Since everything is default it picks up my IP from DHCP and gets other settings same way.

Why do I have to Disable and Enable the Lan connection before it starts accessing the Net.

If you put the laptop to Sleep or Hibernation before disconnecting the cable that may the cause. Try disconnecting the cable first.

The adapter/computer may not be "signing off" the network properly. Make sure you have the latest ethernet driver.

the work router or server is reset while the laptop is away, and
the lease time is long enough for the computer to think it still deserves the "old" IP, then that is a problem. Ask the network administrator to shorten the lease time, or shut down when you transport the machine, or live with your work around.

Hi not sure about this? is it good idea to configure Regedit to Enable in the Local Group Policy Editor?
I checked it and it says it's not configured it's not enabled either?
Do i just leave it ALONE or configure it?

A:Regedit - Enable or Disable?

Hello Puzzeld,

I would recommend to leave it set as Not Configured. Setting it to Enabled in GPEDIT will disable access to the registry for all users.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

A friend mentioned to me that Intel's HT CPU's actually work like two half-speed P4 CPU's so my 2.6Ghz HT CPU actually runs (in HT mode) at 1.3. He said if you set it to non HT mode you will actually see some performance gains depending upon the task you are doing.

Firstly, is this true and secondly my motherboard has an enable hyper threading option ... is that what I would change to get supposed benefits?

Thanks
