Preferred Solution: User name already exists. It does?

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.)

First, if this isn't the correct forum, I apologize. 
We image our machines with SCCM 2012r2 in our environment. From time to time on our Windows 7 machines, we've come across the issues that after imaging, if a user tries to log in that has no admin permissions,
for the first time, the user profile service fails to load, thus not allowing them to log in. 
The fix for that that we use is to delete the iesqmdata_setup0.sqm in the Default User profile.
However, on our Windows 8 machines, this file doesn't appear anywhere. Since this is the first login of the user, there is no user profile for that user anywhere, no reg key to delete, etc. 
What i've had to do in this case, is to go to the default user profile and edit the security permissions. It is already set to "Include inheritable permissions from this objects parent."
What i had to check off was, "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." 
Without this box ticked, no users without admin permissions on their account could login and would always get the User Profile Service failed to start. Once this was ticked, those users could log in.

Now, this doesn't happen on all of our windows 8 machines. Matter of fact, i believe it's only happened on a dozen or so out of about 400.
The image we use is a standard 8.1 Windows install with a few custom programs and driver packages for the machines. Same custom programs are included in our... Read more

I'm trying to add a new user account to my Windows XP machine. However, When I use the User Accounts tools I can't add a specific name. I've had this username on the machine before, but deleted it a long time ago. I must have erased something else by accident too.

I thought it could get to it from Computer Management tool, but when I expand the Local Users and Groups I get, Unable to access the computer ********. The error was: Invalid Syntax.

Any suggestions?

Being one hell of a tweaker I often break my machine. The latest break came about due to a bug in earlier versions of XPLite which upgrading to the latest copy didn't seem to be fixing, and I couldn't wait on the patch.

Anyway, I reinstall Windows XP using a slipstreamed SP2 disc. Once that was up and running I patched Windows, installed Media Player 10 and .Net 1.1 and all the latest drivers. All is well, I opened Local Users and Computers via Computer Managment and removed the accounts for Help Centre and Remote Assistance. I took a quick look at ASPNET and left it there.

Then I changed the security settings, stripped out elements of Windows using XPLite and applied my usual X-Setup and WinGudies Tweak Manager tweaks. Once they were in place I rebooted and moved to create an account for myself seperate from the admin account I had created.

It was at this point I found the Local Users and Groups MMC within Computer Managment had a red cross by it and displayed the following error:

Local Users and Groups

Unable to access the computer MY COMPUTER NAME. The error was: Invalid syntax.

Now, I applied a lot of tweaks in one go, so lots of points of failure you say? Well, the reason I did so many in one go is that it's pretty much the same set I always apply, including the elements of Windows I stripped. However, I'm not so familiar with the newer Local Security Policy opti... Read more

Running Windows XP, Service Pack 3.

Trouble started three weeks with Live Care crashing system. Finally got everything running last night after a two day battle to install IE7. However, in the process User Accounts were damaged.

After reinstalling Windows XP and all software except IE7, everything worked fine. Had three accounts: Admin, and two limited accounts. pw protected. After IE install and lots of talk with MS tech support, only Admin appears on log in screen. Tried to create the two accounts since all data existed in C:/documents and settings, but error message is that account already exists. Created two new accounts with new names, transferred data, all is ok.

However, I would like to return to the old account names, so I changed login procedures to require typing in Account Name, which worked for the "lost accounts" so the profiles and data must be OK.

Is there any way to restore these original account names??

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

And then order the HP recovery disk from hp or computer surgeon to reset back to factory install to get it working. I don't recall Win8 machine came with a HP recovery partition but you had to order the disk from HP or 3rd party-I could be wrong but that how I remember it. You can't use another system recovery because it is tied to that system COA and doing so would invalidate their COA something they wouldn't be happy to find out. You must use and get the Recovery disk matching your Serial number to restore your system.

Hi!

I have a exe file in the Folder call FChart 4.0.1. I would like to write the batch script to check if FChart.exe exists in the FChart 4.0.1 folder then copy it to specified folder. NOTE: the issue is that I would like to have it generic therefore I want to avoid 4.0.1 and only look for FChart folder and then file inside. I've written script but it doesnt work and its not generating any error as well

IF EXIST "VMFChart *\VMFChart.exe" XCOPY "VMFChart *\*" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H

Thanks in Advance
 

A:IF Exists in Batch File

Is the file name FChart.exe or VMFChart.exe? The text says FChart.exe, the command says VMFChart.exe. Same with the folder name.

Easiest way is to try to switch to the FChart* folder. If that succeeds, you then check for the file and copy it.
If FChart 4.0.1 is a folder under the Program Files folder, this should work:

Code:
@Echo Off
PushD %ProgramFiles%
PushD FChart* 2>Nul
If Errorlevel 1 Goto _NotFound
If Exist FChart.exe XCOPY "FChart.exe" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H
Goto _Copied
:_NotFound
Echo FChartXXX folder not found in %CD%
PopD
Goto :EOF
:_Copied
Echo FChart.exe copied to %vmpath%
PopD
PopD
Note that if you have different versions (FChart 4.0.1 and FChart 4.0.2), it will switch to the the first one as listed in a Dir command that is sorted by name. Names with numbers aren't always listed in the same order as in Windows Explorer.

So I got this cell phone that I want to try to connect with my supposedly Bluetooh-enabled laptop. Originally I attempted this after I had upgraded to Internet Explorer 7.0, but that was rife with problems, so I downgraded back to 6. Now if I open up My Computer and double-click on My Bluetooth Places, the "hour glass" sits there for a bit as if it is actually doing something; then, it reverts back to the arrow cursor and the laptop acts as if I never asked it to do something.

I am wondering if the Bluetooth capability of my laptop is gone; I think it must be software/driver related.

So the title is the question. What does it mean?

A Duplicate Name Exists On The Network

I've been trying to find out through the router panel and windows network/sharing panel but can't find it. Anyone have any ideas?
 

A:A Duplicate Name Exists On The Network..

It means that there is a duplicate name in your Windows network, in other words, there's another computer with the same name.

I'm wondering if there is a simplified user interfaced program that will search the Internet for a specific .dll file. I have an extensive list in my Favorites, and Google does a decent job, but I was curious if such a program exists.

If anybody knows of such a program, it would be very much appreciated.
Speaking of which, there is this one that will back up your .dll files-

RXDLL Backup and Restore

How many times have you clicked on a shortcut only to get an error message that says such and such DLL is missing, and the only way you could get the program to work was uninstall and reinstall the software? That problem doesn't exist with RZDLLBackup. Once RZDLLBackup is installed, run the program and RZDLLBackup will scan your system for all existing (latest copy) DLL´s. The next time you receive an ERROR message saying the program won't run, open RZDLLBackup (leave the error message open), fill in the path name (from the error message) and the name of the missing DLL and RZDLLBackup will restore the missing DLL.Click to expand...

New to forum

I was trying to add an HP 1200SE printer manually by way of linksys printer server(no Win 7 updated drivers).

After configuring it, it didn't work so I attempted to redo entries. I now get a message "port already exists" after I deleted the previous install.

How do I delete the already in use port so I can start over?

Windows 7 64 bit on just acquired Z570 Lenovo laptop.

Thanks for the help

A:Printer port already exists

You could always try avoiding the print server and turning on UPnP in your router, as long as your firewall is nice and tight, and printing that way direct through the workstation hosting the printer... although you may need to embed fonts in documents to get them to print correctly...

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I could use some advice about this.

I'm not sure whether this is another one of these scams to get you to buy the product, or whether is has genuinely found a trojan.

There's supposedly a gert0.dll file in "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp" folder, but when I go in there, it's no-where to be found - it's not a hidden file either.

"clear out the temp files directory" I hear you say. But how do you delete something that only seems to be found using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (which btw, it tells me it can't be removed without rebooting my PC; but when I do that - and even in Safe Mode - it still appears to be there)

I've tried running UnHack Me, MSE, Spybot S&D, SUPERAntispyware, Prevx and ThreatFire (plus I've used HijackThis), but none of them show anything.

So do I need to clean the cache of Malwarebytes or something (already used CCleaner but made no difference; what else would I use?), or could it possibly be a genuine threat?

The trojan's name is Trojan.Qhosts btw. I've just finished running Symantec Trojan.Qhosts Fix tool, and that hasn't found anything either.
On another note, I've got something called HNQLQ.SYS in my systems folder, but a Google search has found nothing on it at all.

A:A trojan that exists but does not? (gert0.dll)

If you restart your computer in Safe Mode and open your Temp folder, do you see a file named gert0.dll? If so, it's malware, and you should delete it.

Have a custom tower and don't know the make/model of the drive, but it was working perfectly until recently. Tower has a DVD-ROM drive and a CD+/-R/RW burner drive. Now, it is almost as though the CD drive is not there; the Drive is gone from MY Computer, and it will not even open, like the power is shut off to it. The DVD drive is usually OK, but sometimes it vanishes for awhile and then reappears; the only difference being that it will always open/close, even when the icon is missing. I tried uninstalling some burn programs, but to absolutely no avail. Ideas????

This is bit of a general question. If you have passwords to all of your BIOS/UEFI settings, you have disabled  CD/USB boot , if you have your C: encrypted and good Windows password, is there still any possibility that someone can access your files/install something, if he has physical access, and even if we assume that he has the same laptop and switches the hards? And to remain completely undetected - without password reset or changing, so next time you log you to never notice that someone did something. 
 
I am asking in order to protect myself if i need to leave my machines unnatended in the future!

I like to use scheduled tasks to make my computer into an alarm clock. I just got this computer about 6 weeks ago, and when I tried this for the first time it wouldn't work well because something else kept waking it up early at odd hours. I gradually got that sorted to the point where I could try it again. My first trial task was named 'alarm', and when it didn't work I right-clicked on the task and deleted it. Now I can't use that name as it is apparently already in use. So I named it something else, and it works, but some task keeps waking the computer at 6am, M-F, the same as I had set for 'alarm'. I've looked through all the tasks, and a few have run at that time, but none of those are set to wake the computer. I've searched for 'alarm' and come up empty, but if it doesn't exist, why can't I use that name for a task now? Is it possible that the 'deleted' task is still running but not visible, and if so, how can I find it again? If that's not possible, how can I find what's waking my computer at 6am? I've been through every task in the scheduler, and nothing is set to do that as far as I can tell.

A:Scheduled task already exists

the possibilities are endless. it seems like every piece of commercial software will routinely connect to the internet on a set schedule, ranging from a daily check to a monthly check. if it happens daily, my first guess would be windows update, or maybe an antivirus program.

My problem is no administrator account exists any longer. I found your conversation with someone about this but I can't seem to get back to it again. Please forgive me I am so technology challenged. Last night my son was using my computer and deleted the administrator account on me now the only access I have is through my daughters user account which of course has limited access. I am trying to follow the "safe mode" instructions you had posted but can't get into safe mode due to the computer asking me to by pass the administrator which no longer exists. What do I do?

Please help!! I thank you in advance and appreciate any help you can offer.

Sincerely,

Jennifer

A:No Administrator Account Exists

Hello Jennifer, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Have you already tried to enter you password for that account to see if it may let you into Safe Mode afterwards?


If you did, then you might give Method Three in this tutorial a try to reset the password to nothing, then see if you can boot into Safe Mode.

Reset User Account Password

Hope this helps,
Shawn

If you can get into Safe Mode afterwards, see if you can create a new Administrator account. You might also look to see if your son just changed the administrator account type to something else (ex: Standard) instead of deleting it. If this is the case, then you can just change it back to a administrator account instead of creating a new account.

IE no longer exists in my programs file.  I tried to download IE but message says cannot install because I already have a more current version.  I have IE file folders in which there are a few files, .ins, text, .xml.  No others.  The
.ins files allows me to "extract".  When attempting to do so, Windows does not recognize the .ins file type, which seems odd as I understand .ins is a windows extension.  It will not allow me to open and when following the links to locate
a program that will open it, I get 3rd party web sites wanting me to run THEIR registry fixing program.  HELP!  I am running Win 7.  Thank you.

See my response to Robert Dyer-- above.  Any other thoughts on the issue.


I don't think you have responded to this question:
<quote>
Is Internet Explorer (or possibly Internet Explorer 11) listed in...

Programs and Features | Turn Windows features on or off


</quote>
But if what you see there is  Internet Explorer 11  and it is unchecked it would explain all your symptoms.  Unchecking that option is designed to hide  iexplore.exe  and its shortcuts.
However, it is actually a GUI implementation of a DISM command and some other browsers apparently exploit that and perhaps somehow even hide the option in Windows Features.
So in case you don't even see the option to check in that list here is a way to get started at looking at the DISM side of it.
The easiest way is to start an Administrator: Windows PowerShell and there enter:
PS C:\windows\system32> Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online | where {$_.FeatureName -match "Internet"}

Just paste and enter the bold stuff.  The directory level doesn't matter.  I'm leaving that in the example as another reminder to be sure that you are using a PowerShell window which is
elevated.  If you like you can get into one simply by entering  powershell.exe  in an
elevated cmd window (aka Administrator Command Prompt).

I've got an app which streams images from a URL and saves them locally. I'm using the
System.Net.WebRequest and System.Net.WebResponse classes to achieve this. When the URL is valid it's fine, everything works OK, but when it's given an invalid URL, of a domain that doesn't exit, no exception is thrown and the request is redirected to openDNS. This leads to the stream writing out a small file which contains the contents of the openDNS response page. Clearly this is not the behaviour I'm after. If the URL is invalid I want an exception to be thrown. Even the statusDescription of the response says "OK". Does anyone know how I can get around this? BTW it's in C#.

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Check if URL exists

Have a browse around MSDN C# function reference, I'm sure you'll find a function that will return the IP address of an URL or similar info that you can use to test the URL prior to your problem call.

I have had my HP laptop for about a year and a half running windows vista. Early on I only had AVG as an antivirus and I recall it popped up on one or two occasions showing I had a trojan on my computer--I don't recall the name. Recently I received Webroot antivirus and antispyware free from a friend and it detected a few things, that it identifies by these names: trojan wimad-m, trojan.gen, app/kilit-a, app coupbar-gen, and some random cookies. I have since downloaded many more programs. Here are what they are and what they found:

spybot- nothing
AVG 8.5- nothing
ccleaner-cleaned many files
malwarebytes- rogue.winantivirus
ad-aware- random cookies
super antispyware- random tracking cookies

As for my odd symptoms, I only have the webroot program running continuously and it has a small box that pops up in the lower right hand corner of my screen saying it is blocking my computer from accessing random sites... none of which I can recall right now because it doesn't happen all the time. There were however many many of them (hundred?) and yahoo searches of the websites showed they were not to be trusted. Also while I'm on the internet over a period of time, it progressively gets slower, and opening the task manager showes when its slow that iexplore.exe is using sometimes upwards of 500,000 k.

Recently I've run all the programs I listed earlier in both normal and safe mode and they don't find anything. I know trojans can be tricky thought and I would appreciate great... Read more
