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.)

Two similar events have happened to me recently, all while logged into windows; I use only one account on this pc. On both occurrences the Screen flashes black; after that, in particular the first occurrence i was not able to access the admin account via
UAC; Group policy is set to ask for password upon elevation, good and well, but the password dialogue box said that the admin account was locked out. After rebooting, I was unable to login, with the exact same error appearing; A system restore fixed this issue.
Unfortunately I did not note the exact string of the error, and I see no references to it in event log except for this " Event 6000 The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> was unavailable to handle a notification event."  However
the error "description" was quite different error on this second occurrence.
Here are some event errors that occurred during the first error:

In short: I can't run CMD in elevated mode
Slightly longer - but I think it matters: Trying to run the command "chkdsk /f /r" in order to find what's wrong and (hopefully) fix it. Apps (word, excel) are locking up; exe files won't run; can't get AVG to run in order to find problems.
What I've done:

Have right-clicked on CMD to open it in elevated mode but it won't open; eventually it times out.Went into files and found windows\system32\cmd.exe, right clicked on it, but same thing: it times out (saying that it didn't start in a timely fashion.)

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes

ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

As a single home user, in setting up Windows 10 I was not aware there is a hidden administrator who controls changes to the system.  I discovered this when I went to  open the check disk function.  I have spent hours trying different prescribed
methods found online online for ogetting access to the elevated command prompt - but all end saying I don't have the priviledge.  In another approach, my computer tells me I do not have access to luscr.msc and to instead go to account change.  Here's
the kicker.  Once there, I am not allowed to change from "standard" to "administrator"  - this is a Catch 22 since I am the only registered user of the system.  HELP - I'm not techie, but I'm also not a complete dummy.

Hi All,

I have just added 4 computers to my domain. I rebuilt them from scratch so I know they are brand spanking new. Defore adding them to the domain they booted and logged in real quick. Now that I have added them to the domain they take an age to 'load persoanl settings'. Now i realise the first time you logon it has to create your profile but it doesnt appear to get any quick later on. The strange thing is that all the other computers bottup and login just fine.
My question is how can I find out what is causing the problem. I have read elsewhere that it could be a network timeout, or failed or not installed drivers. But How do I find out?

Windows XP Pro SP2 on a Windows 2003 server based network.

Any ideas welcome.

PS. The anti-virus makes no difference and there are VERY few services and start up items loading on boot.

Anyone ever heard of this....

At first I thought this might be a virus, but now I'm really confused as to what it is. I'm giving as much information as I can, because a lot of these results were surprising to me.

- Version of the OS. If Service Packs are installed, mention these too.
Windows XP Home with SP3. HP Pavilion Laptop from early 2005. It can also dual boot.

- If the OS produces an error, either upload a screenshot of the error message (ALT+PrtScrn), or literally quote
the error in your post at the forum (Preferred).
Windows cannot find "logon.exe". Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again..." Then something about locating the file using Search.

- Were there recent crashes that could have caused this problem?
Yes, I tried installing/uninstalling MySQL several times. After the first install, I tried to start up MySQL. However, it prompted for a password, and I entered the MySQL root password. It failed (perhaps I should have entered my Windows password), so I uninstalled it. I reinstalled MySQL, now I get a "Cannot start MySQL service" error. This was because there was still a MySQL service running. I stopped it, but I couldn't get rid of the error, so I cancelled the install. I uninstalled MySQL, but it got stuck at step 2/2 for around 10 minutes, so I clicked cancel. It also crashed Youtube, so I ended up closing my browser (Chrome).

After restarting my PC last night I noticed the OS took much longer to boot and after loading the desktop, I got the error "Windows cannot find logon.exe," and notice the following:Cannot access Start menu (I was able to get this running by clicking properties on the task bar and making some changes and saving)
McAffee Security Suite is not loaded
Drivers are not loaded, including USB and network drivers.
OS System files are running but no username is associated with them. Typically they are loaded by "System"
I cannot complete basic function like drag & drop, paste, etc.
I CAN copy files from command prompt, but cannot copy folders...even with xcopy.
I can load software and use computer management.

I believe this is not from a virus. I installed Windows XP SP2 in May. I made a mistake and loaded the root drive as D:. I've never seen this done before, but I didn't think it would be a big deal to leave it, so I opted not to reinstall.

I setup an Administrator account and a 2nd user account for my normal logon and added it to the administrators group. I also put My Documents onto the E: partition.

After starting Windows, I noticed that the Administrator account was not listed on the logon screen. I also noticed that I did not need to enter a password logging onto my user account, even though I had set one. I wasn't too concerned though, so I ignored these.

Good day to all. I would appreciate input / help to address the problem I?m having with Win 7 after I logon to my account. Here are some details of my system and the ?problem?.

1)- Hardware: Notebook, MSI U230 Light , CPU Athlon Neo MV-40, RAM 2G , HDD 250 GB
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium. This is the only OS on the notebook.

2)- The problem occurs in about 10% of all logon attempts ? it does not occur all the time. This is how / when the problem occurs:

3)- Win 7 starts successfully and icons for my two profiles (G2 , G-msi) appear. I logon to my account (G2) and then see the ?welcome? screen, and after a very long period of searching by the system, windows reports that it cannot find my desktop. The Win 7 notice indicates that a file may have been moved , or that the file may have been on a removable media. (Note: However, I did NOT delete, edit, or remove any file(s) or the HDD).

4)- On one occasion, after this problem occurred, windows provided me with a ?temporary account? and desktop and indicated any files that I generated would not be saved when I logged-off. On another occasion when I experienced this problem my desktop wallpaper was replaced with a blue screen Window 7 default. Each time when Windows 7 has been unable to find my desktop, I have shutdown and rebooted and subsequently managed to logon successfully.

200+ Windows 7 Pro machines, similar configuration, 1/4 of them x86, 3/4 x64.
Encountered 6 such machines having this problem: After a restart, user logon stuck at a black screen. In Windows event application log there is an event 'The Windows logon process has failed to spawn a user application'. This application is an in-house developed
application and is called at winlogon\userinit registry key.
A restart into Safe Mode, first logon will experience an auto-restart, then second logon ok. Subsequent logon into normal Windows is ok.

Setting the group policy setting to User Account Control: Behaviour in Admin Approval Mode to 'Elevated without prompt' doesn't solve the problem.

All machines are in workgroup.
There seems to be a relationship between security hardening (through local security policy) and this behaviour but not conclusive because some of the machines encountering the problem had not been hardened.
When I booted a machine under MS DART and change the userinit registry key to call userinit.exe instead of the in-house application, subsequent user can logon correctly under normal mode. Then changing it back to call the in-house application will again
logon into black screen.
Based on these observations, can anyone share what Windows does during Safe Mode to recovery such problem? under what circumstances does it auto-restart after a logon? Can local GPO enforcement corrupt the default user profile?

Please help. My computer is running extremely slow and it is almost brand new. I have scanned for viruses using Spybot and Spyware Doctor. Nothing unusual pops up. However, when I look at the CPU usage in the Task manager it will go from 5% upwards of 100% and change by the second. Since the CPU usage is so high I imagine this is why my computer will stall or be very slow opening up programs or executing any functions. I had help once where I used HiJack This and someone showed me what to delete to clean my computer. Can someone walk me through this? Or ss there any freeware available to help with this problem or does anyone have any suggestions. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which is using Windows XP operating system. Thank you very much in advance.
 

A:elevated CPU usage

Hi jmontcri,

Check what programs are running (cntr-alt-del) will
bring up the task manager. Check "applications".

You should also check completely for spyware and
virii.

And your virtual memory is probably "thrashing", constantly
re-sizing. You should set it to what would be a "static"
size.

Right click on My Computer. Hit "Properties". In the upper right
you will see "Advanced", then hit "settings", under "virtual
memory". Go to "Advanced". You can choose which drive
to use and you can re-set it manually. Hit "change"

If you have lots of RAM, set it for 400 Meg low, 400 meg
high. Hit set, apply and go out. You will need to reboot.
This should improve speed significantly.

I recently had a problem where my graphics driver decided not to install the update after it removed the working version, now I can't get any version to install. But, that's a different issue (maybe connected though). I just went through and did a full virus scan using pretty much every boot cd I have at hand, as well as malwarebytes (oh, and that's another issue to work on later) and superantispyware. None found any problems except the usual tracking webpages ... nothing major. Ok, so after rebooting after all of that, everything is running in Admin mode! I'm still logging in with my normal username and the Administrator account is still disabled. But if I go to open a cmd prompt I see that the command will run with elevated privs. I can't figure out why. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:Everything is running as elevated ... why?

Is this elevated privileges or elevated permissions?

I'm running Vista Home Premium, and there's an account that had Administrator privileges but it doesn't show on the login screen. The two accounts available are a Standard user and the Guest account. I reboot into safe mode but the only two options are the two mentioned. I can't do anything in safe mode as far as the User Accounts applet is concerned, but I ran a "net user" command and it showed that the Administrator privileged account is active.

I can't edit the registry, and the UAC doesn't have any options of selecting an elevated account (it's completely blank).

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

The user is an Administrator on the PC. Is there a way to modify the privileges to this complete this task?

Note: the user can connect to the vpn but cannot connect to the internet simultaneously since the modifying the routing table is noe allowed.

hi

im looking to create a shortcut to release and renew my ip. address all with one click. (using a rainmeter skin to fire it off)

but the problem im having is when the batch file is executed (using rainmeter) vista isnt allowing me as the relase ip etc commands require elevated privilages rather than a standard cmd.

what i would like to know is there a way round this? to bypass vista uac control and run a cmd with elevated privilages to the end that the elevated cmd releases my ip then renews it. all with one click. ?

many thanks to anyone that can assist me on this.

Hey. I have downloaded a game on steam called "Dragon Nest". When I start the game up, a UAC window pops up and tells me that I need administrator privileges. No problem. This is my laptop so I am the admin. The problem is that I don't want this program to require elevated privileges and I am looking for a way to change that. Thanks.

A:Elevated Programs

If it wasn't a Steam game, I'd say try to just set the shortcut to run as admin, which might work anyway.

But since it is Steam, probably best to leave it alone and be glad it's all working for ya as is. One minor thing can break stuff with Steam.

Every time I turn on my computer (lenovo g530 running windows xp) There is no logon screen. Instead it pops up a message that says C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Theme\Nocturnal.Theme. Not enough quota is available to process this command. Everytime I push OK it just pops up again. This includes safe mode and other modes. I believe it has something to do with trying to change the login theme.

Start your computer.
When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

I switched to a backup computer after my current one died. It was bringing up two user accounts, one of which I do not know what it is, and apparently it was trying to log into that one first, as it was in the box and it said the password which I had not entered, was incorrect. I believe I changed the account to my Microsoft Account and entered the password, I got in. However I don't like seeing that second account on there with the computer trying to boot up into it first so I tried to get rid of it. That account did not show up in my user accounts list, but google found a way to see all the other accounts via cmd prompt. In an attempt to get rid of it, I clicked "disable" on the account I did not recognize. This was not the administrator account. Upon reboot, both accounts still show up on the screen but now neither will let me in. It still tries to use the account I don't recognize and tells me the password entered is wrong, despite me not entering a password. Using my Microsoft Account, it now says the password is incorrect. However, I can still get into that account with the current password on my laptop. Trying to dig into this, the option to change the password comes up, but since I have the laptop automatically boot up without entering the password, I don't want to mess that up and not have any access. Actually, I guess that means I have it set up to boot without a password and changing it supposedly won't affect it...is that correct? Do you thin... Read more

I have been trying to register a program I bought and they tell me I must be logged in as Admin.

When I try to get to the elevated CMD prompt I am entering: net user administrator /active:yes

I get an ERROR 5 message and nothing happens.

I have also tried to use the other method using the Computer Management | Users method and enabling the account there. I don't see anything happening when I do this unless I have to reboot the machine, which I haven't tried.

The admin account is simply administrator and has not been renamed to something else and there is no password. I have used the CMD prompt method before and it worked fine now for some reason it won't.

Thanks ,

When I am logged into a "standard" account, and choose to run a program as an "administrator" with the "run as" choice. Does it leave me running at an administrator level until I relog in or does it just run that program at that elevated privelage.
Thanks, Scott

A:[SOLVED] elevated privelages

Using the "run as administrator" option only runs the specified program as administrator. It does not change how you are logged in but only effects that one program. But note that by default programs inherit the rights of the parent process. If that one program you run as administrator opens others they will also have administrator rights that continue as long as they are running.

The purpose of the "run as administrator" option is to allow you to run an application with elevated privileges without the need of closing all open applications, logging out, then logging as an administrator.

Hi,

For those who'd like to use the power of a permanent admin (can of course be reverted) prompt here's how:

Elevated Command Prompt Shortcut - Windows 7 Forums

Open Explorer and drill down to:

C:\Users\"Username"*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools

There you see the command prompt shortcut as the first of a list of shortcuts. Right click it, choose properties from the list.
The property list will open, now choose Advanced and tick the "Run as Administrator" checkbox. Click Apply, Close. Done.

Now every time you run a command prompt you'll run it with administrative rights.

Cheers,

* Username: the account name you logged on with.
