User accounts "internet explorer script error"

Q: User accounts "internet explorer script error"

Hi,

I just got a second hand computer from an auction, and have installed windows XP home edition and the service pack 2. my father accidentally included 4 user login profiles (the ones that appear when you first turn the computer on) instead of just the 1 for me, so I tried to delete the others. 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.

Can you please help me get rid of this???

Many thanks,
Michael

Preferred Solution: User accounts "internet explorer script error"

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.)

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: SFCShowProgress
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

A:Problems with User Accounts(Getting internet explorer script error messages)etc

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!

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,

While using "Windows Explorer" as an FTP client I have put the system into a state where any attempts to access an FTP folder from "Windows Explorer" produces the following dialog:
Dialog Title: "FTP Folder Error"
Dialog Icon: Information Icon
Dialog Text: "Windows cannot access this folder.  Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.  Details: No more Internet handles can be allocated"

While using my computer last week (it's been off for a week now as I was on vacation) almost all the icons on my desktop turned into internet explorer links, and all the programs on my computer (including my Norton Antivirus) will not open as they all are being "opened" with internet explorer.

Hi

I'm getting this error message.
I did a google search and found this: You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon
But did not help me. I also did a search here and found a few topics with this error message though they didn't solve my problem either, because mine problem seems to be different.

I can login to existing accounts. But I can't login to new ones.
So when I go to the registry editor there's no folder for the new accounts. They just don't exist at all. Only the existing ones.
I create a new user account at the Users menu in Control panel and they show up at login screen. When I click them, it starts the waiting icon saying "Logging in" then after a few seconds, this error message pops up. I can click OK and then it says "logging off" and goes back to the login screen.
I do have access to an administrator account and a standard account, I can log in to both

I don't have any system restore points before this started happening. i'm using ESET Smart Security as my antivirus but I don't think it's causing the problem, I uninstalled it and it didn't work then either so I reinstalled it back.
Please help me what could be wrong?

Hi, when you first install windows it cretes a user who is registered owner , you need to change this to your new registered owner or it will crop up all over the place. Open regedit do the appropriate backup first and navigate to this key:-

Hi,

This is my first post...

I bought a PC from a website years ago, Cube24/7, in a bit of a rush. The website in retrospect was a bit dodgy, and based on other reviews of the site, I am lucky I got something for my money at all!

It was stated to have Windows 7 on it - which turned out to be not true. After spending my cash on a PC, I then did not want to fork out for an OS (as it did not have a default one) so, alas, I used a copy of a friend?s.

It worked fine initially, but then I was greeted with the familiar message to many of ?This copy of windows is not genuine?. At first I thought I would just ignore it, but eventually went down the route of getting a product key online. This worked fine for a while, but then required me to do it every couple of weeks...

NOW this has finally caught up with me, and I cannot access my user accounts. It comes up with an error message relating to user profiles being unavailable. I have tried many things, such as going on as a guest (which works fine) and doing a system clock back or system restore, but when it asks for the administrator?s password, I get the same error relating to user accounts.

Ultimately, I am looking for any way to restore the system so that I can access my user accounts, as I now do not really want to buy Windows 7 for the PC, if the error still occurs.

Any help would be appreciated and just contact me for queries.

Thanks

Hi all

At my company we are currently running a server (with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard), without Active Directory, and we have a bunch of laptops running Windows 8.1 Pro. Now we want to install Dynamics CRM which requires an Active Directory domain.

I am trying to run through every anticipated problem before I do the domain configuration. The last problem that I anticipate is the following:

Our MD's laptop is currently logging in without a Microsoft account (in other words, he uses a standard local user profile in Windows 8.1 Pro). He has a whole lot of data in this profile from a few years of work. So now, when we configure the domain, obviously he will have to sign in using an Active Directory username and password. So question 1 is, is it possible to synchronize the current local (non-Windows Live) account with the domain account? The second question is, how will this affect his data, settings, etc? And the third question is, when he's working from home, without the domain controller to authenticate logins, will he still be able to access his data and profile? In other words, what I'm really asking is, will we be able to kind of "integrate" the Active Directory account and local account as one account, but the authentication is AD based when he's at the office, but local if he's at home?

Thank you!
 

A:Possible to "integrate" Win8.1 user accounts with Active Directory?

When you join a domain you get a new user account/profile on the computer. All his data and settings will need to be transferred from the old local account to the new domain account. Once joined to the domain and logged onto the domain users can take the computers offsite and still log onto that same account, the domain does not have to be contacted for logins while offsite., a local account is not needed for offsite use but the previous local accounts will still exist on the laptop. That account if its not going to be used should be disabled for security though.

Now there are tools and a procedure to move a local account to a domain account if you want to give that shot, doesn't always work, and I've never needed to use it. ForensiT User Profile Wizard supposedly works well: http://www.forensit.com/downloads.html
Definitely have a backup in place first.

Picked up a cisco a/b/g card on Ebay for my daughters laptop.

Works great, however I used to have separate user accounts (myself as administrator) and her own, just so I could ensure settings would not be changed by accident.

After installing the drivers, only the administrator account is usable. I can't seem to figure out how to configure so that they all still work. To be able to logoff and logon under a different account is what I want. It's definitely something to do with the Cisco card settings, not the computer.

Would really appreciate if someone could give me any ideas how to configure so that those accounts work.

Do you see this behavior on your desktop, in win explorer or anywhere else with icons?

There is a repair routine available, but it resets them all to how they were when you first installed XP.

Have you ran any spyware/virus checkups yet?

I would do that in SafeMode just to be sure this isn't security issue.

I have new Dell Dimension e310, I have myself and my wife set up as "Adminstrators" and the 3 kids as "Limited". When I did the initial set-up I checked a box that said something about keeping files private. Maybe I shouldn't have. Now when I am logged in and I down load a new program such as "Kodak Easyshare" nobody else can select pictures to make changes to them. Is there a way to allow access to these files/pictures in this program and other future programs??

A:User Accounts - with "limited" access

You have 2 choices: you can move the files/programs into the Shared Documents folder, or you can remove the extra security on your user ID.

The Shared Documents folder is found in My Computer. It is active under every account on the computer.

Here is a step by step from Microsoft on how to add/remove permissions for folders and files. Microsoft Support

Whenever I click on "Add or remove user accounts" in Control Panel, a blank Windows Explorer window pops up and then disappears about 2-3 seconds later. And then nothing else happens.

Just yesterday, my computer would not load my profile settings for my main account. I tried to fix that problem by copying that account's files into another account and deleting the faulty one. Now this new issue has occurred. Is there any way to figure out what's wrong and fix it?

Running Vista Business 32bit.

A:Can't open "add or remove user accounts"

Are you trying from an administrators account?

See if it can be done in safe mode

If none of the above work, try an SFC command to repair any corruption. Run 3 times if errors are found

I've been having a problem with my laptop XP install for a while. I've lost the easy XP login screen at startup and now only have what I assume is the NT looking login dialogue box at startup.

When I go to User Accounts in the Control Panels I get the first "Specified module could not be found" and try to re-enable the "Use the Welcome Screen" login and save it seems to go okay, but when I try to reopen the "Change the way users login or logoff" I get the "Specified module could not be found" error again. The option to use the welcome screen never saves when I hit Apply Changes.

I thought perhaps installing Serivce Pack 3 update might help fix this but so far no such luck.

Is there a way to repair this problem without reinstalling the entire OS?

Hi I?ve been trying to change some accounts in Comcast and I can?t get into ?user and accounts?. I called Comcast for 3 days now and the last time I called they said it was a nationwide problem. Is anyone else having this problem and how long has it been going on?

A:is "user & accounts" in Comcast closed for everyone?

Hello,

If they say it is a nation wide problem there is not really much help we can give on the problem. If you want to know how long it has been going on and how it effects people my best guess would be to ask Comcast

Whenever I try to access the User Accounts part of the Control Panel, the window comes up completely blank. I've tried registering various DLLs and I've also tried editing the registry. Nothing has worked. My System Restore has been turned off since I got this computer, so that's not an option. What should I do? Here's a link to a cropping of a screenshot of my User Accounts window:

A:Windows IE 8: error message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

Hello everyone,

I would like to thank you for this great site. It helped me to fix my problems: when I tried to start Windows Explorer, or My Computer or Control Panel I got the message "An error has occurred in Internet Explorer. Interner Explorer will now close". And I could not start any of these programs.

Symantec Antivirus 8.1 and AVG 6.0 have reported several viruses, and they were claiming to be succesfull in puting them in quarantine and cleaning them. However, the problems persisted. I have run Windows installation to repair it - and I have re-installed Explorer - with no more luck.

Finally, I found your site, and install and run Ad-Aware. I have removed all spywares indicated by Ad-Aware, and the problem was fixed.

I believe that these problems were due to the site SecurityIGuard.com ! This site was occurring every time when I tried to run Internet Explorer. They are in a list of 'suspect' anti-spyware. It seems that they can do more than just run spywares in local computers. On my machine they broke Explorer - and really put me under stress
Can anyone do anything against such guys ?

Thank you very much for your site,
Ioana Goga

IE 11 stopped working as the alert states. Supposedly it is checking on a solution, but none has come back after several days of not working. I have no idea why this has happened. I certainly don't mind deleting the program and installing a new one, but I can't see how to do this. Luckily Firefox is my main browser and I can do without IE (I think), but still would like it to function.

Hi All,

This is my first thread.

I work for a reputed company as a System Engineer. Here we are using ACER Veriton Desktop, Windows 7 Enterprise, OS. We usually do MDT while installing OS, so all required softwares office, SEP, Adobe etc is included in the image.

Current Configuration:

Windows 7 Enterprise
4 Gb RAM
500 Gb hard disk
C drive space is free around 20 gb
Windows Updates we usually push through SCCM
There are no pending updates pending.
Offcource policy is applied.


The Things I tried before posting here:

Tried
1. Installing updates, but error
2. Removing from domain and install but no luck.


The default browser is IE 8. When I tried to update to IE 9 I got "Internet Explorer did not finish installing error."

And when I tried to install the updates before installing IE 9, error pops up saying this update is not applicable to this computer.

Someone please help me on this regard, because the users oracle application will work only on IE 9.

Planning to do Full format, but I would like to skip formatting. Any ideas on this would be very grateful.

Regards,
Satish

A:IE 9 Upgradation Error " Internet Explorer did not finish installing"

Welcome to Seven Forums satish030587. Try this, it can do no harm, and just may be your issue:

Try changing the date on the system to 1/1/2012 and then try installing IE9. Apparently the problem is that a certificate in the IE9 install package is out of date, so changing the clock back to a time before the certificate expires allows IE9 to install properly. Let us know if any success. A Guy
