Preferred Solution: new users auto added to more groups

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.)

After forgetting the local administrator password, I followed that guide for offline editing the SAM registry file. This clearly caused a problem, because no I see no users in LUAG as per the attached. All the accounts work fine, except the built-in administrator account which I can't do anything with (if I try to enable it using the 'net user' command, net crashes).

I suspect I may just have to live with this, but does anyone have any suggestions about how to 'clean' the administrator account in the registry so that LUAG works again?

Thanks

A:No users visible in Local Users and Groups

Check your Windows version!

If you have the Windows 10 Home edition, then it will not have Local Users and Groups (lusrmgr.msc) included in it. It's only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions instead.

What command(s) you use to activate the Administrator?

I have had trouble viewing certain documents. I've been told I don't have permission. When I checked the Users, I find a list of Users and Groups that I'm unaware of. My computer should only be used by myself and my daughter. How do I know which Users to
keep, and which to get rid of? How do I delete unwanted users? I do belong to a group. My computer was given to me by my former employer. Does he still have access to my files?

These are the additional users and Groups listed on my computer...

Some of which have access to my folders, others do not. Is this something that should concern me?

A:Why do I have so many Users and Groups (RDN) on my computer?

Here are a couple of options:

Ask the IT guys at your former employer's what these accounts and groups are about. They will know.
Perform a destructive Factory Restore. This is the recommended option for any second-hand PC because you can never know what is lurking in there. A Factory Restore gives you the equivalent of a brand-new machine.

Okay I have been making User accounts for awhile but i have a question when it comes to this one. When I copy a user account I get the same groups and permissions. Okay fine and dandy. If not and I make a new user I only get the Domain\Users group then have to manually add in the other groups. Is there any way to change this functionality to add more groups on creation without resorting to copying?

This stems from the deny local login question I posted. I can deny login by a global group but then this means every new User ID HAS to be in that group or else it won't deny the new hires.

E.G. I set the local setting for the front desk PC's to deny log on locally for anyone who is in the Non-front desk global group. This means all users currently on our domain has to have this global group added to their user account except the ID's we want to log in. This also means all new creations should have this by default.

Hi all,

Basically I have "User A" and "User B" in both "Group A" and "Group B", but "Group B" is also part of "Group A".

---> User B
---> Group B
Group B

Since User A and User B are already technically part of Group A by way of Group B, I want to remove them from Group A, and only leave them in Group B, which is still part of Group A.

Hello there,

If this is possible, I eventually want about 5 groups of columns to be able to auto-sort independently from each other on the same worksheet. Thanks in advance for any advice, I'm new at all of these features.
 

A:Auto-Sort groups of columns in Excel

Hi Alex,
Welcome to the forum

Is there any relation between the values in each column?

If it's just individual lists per column, you just apply the sorting to each column separately

When sorting you only select that particuler column and sort it in either way you want.

If you take the whole table then then you will be able to sort one column let's say upward and the next wornward but they remain related.

Else just like I mentioned: sort each column as you like but the only select one column at a time but ONLY IF THERE IS NO RELATION BETWEEN THE COLUMNS else your data is no longer trustworthy

Oh, and something import, don't forget to mention the Excel version you're using

I am completely at my wits end. I have been battling some hellish malware for months now. I have done just about everything I can think of, from using crazy passwords, changing the obvious settings prone to weakness, uncheck Remote access, disable built in admin, disabling shares, strict firewall settings, different firewalls, different AV software, just about everything really, anti-spyware. I have used about every advanced malware discovery out there to no avail, from tdsskiller, combofix, Reanimator, ansMBR, etc.. All come up blank.

The obvious normal signs of something being infected are there. Sudden dropping of firewall, suddenly being denied access to areas, finding services running that should be disabled, noting my av software isn't working properly. Lots of instances of svchost running, far more than reasonable, with the wrong PID, access level. Auditing in cmd environment and seeing unknown open ports, foreign addresses, not accountable to any legitimate service, etc.

To make matters worse, when I actively try to make changes preventing access, I find my own account changed, anything from my search function disabled to all admin tool (mmc) locked out. Piling on, this infection is not only nasty, it's aggressive, it won't hesitate to actually remove my account from all groups, basically locking me out of my own computer. Add to this a particular intelligence, and it's any computer users worst nightmare.

Network team say "its not the network"!!
Server Team say "Its not DNS or Group Policy" !! 
So its been left with me on the desktop team to diagnose the fault

I own a system running windows 7 enterprise and have an administrator account on it.

I would like to setup a "standard user" (not admin) account for a new user.

I plan to create a folder for the user inside of which the user will be allowed to create his own subfolders and files. I plan to right click on that folder and "send it to
the desktop".

When the user double clicks that desktop icon, he'll be running windows explorer and I don't want him to be able to see or do anything using windows explorer outside of his
"home" folder other than creating or accessing items under it.

I plan to have that user's home folder be directly under the c: drive.

Questions:

Is there a better place for it (inside of "my documents", etc) or is under the c: drive as good a place as any for these purposes?

If I put the user's "home" folder under the c: drive, what should the permissions be for which users and which groups on the c: drive toplevel itself and on the user's
"home" folder so the user can do what he wants in or under his home folder, can run a few applications located in "Program Files" such as Firefox (one of the desktop icons I will be installing) and in another folder under the c: drive where I will place a few .exe files he can also run, but NOT be able to read, write, execute or in any way modify the contents of any other folders anywhere under the c: drive?

According to Microsoft "help", &quo... Read more

A:How to setup users/groups/permissions for a user "home" folder

If you do not want a user to have access to certain folders, it is fairly simple to do. For instance, say you do not want a user to see other user's files. With your administrator account, do the following:

1. Click start menu
2. Click My Computer/Computer
3. Open C: (or whatever drive your users folder is in)
4. Open the Users folder
5. Right click your administrator user folder
6. Click Properties
7. Click the Security tab
8. Click Edit
9. (You don't want username John to open this folder ever) Click Add
10. Type in John (or the username you do not want to access the folder) and hit Enter
11. Under the Deny column, put a check in Full Control.
12. Click OK and apply to all folders (you may need to do this in safe mode to apply to every folder since some folders will be in use in normal mode).

I can sign into my Yahoo groups account but can only see the first page of groups (I belong to about 70 groups). When I click on "View all Groups" I get the following message:
"We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request at this time.

If you continue to receive this error for more than 48 hours, please contact our Customer Support staff. We apologize for this inconvenience."

I have tried from various workststations(home and at work), made sure cookies were turned on, dropped the firewall, etc. I even went to the lost groups locator utility, no result.

Yahoo tech support does not respond, I have tried many times in the last two months (I got what I paid for).

Any ideas?

Hi all,
Normally when a standard user is added to the group "Network Configuration Operators", it should provide them with access to change NICs. This is also indicated in the group description ==> "Members in this group can have some administrative
privileges to manage configuration of networking features"
I've added a standard user to the group but I'm still receiving the error "You do not have permission to open the Network Connections folder" when opening ncpa.cpl. When I click on the active connection in "network and sharing center"
and click on Properties, I am able to change the settings of this adapter.
Does anyone have a clue why the message "you do not have permission to open the Network Connections folder" is displayed?
I thought this KB might be needed, but it's not applicable to my system appareantly.
The systems impacted are Windows 7 x64.
The following image described what is working (green) and what's not (red).

I've simulated this on a Windows 10 device (other domain!!) and I'm always able to open ncpa.cpl. When trying to change the properties of a NIC, I'm prompted for credentials. Only when a user is added to the group "Network Configuration Operators",
he's able to change the settings of the NIC.
Thanks in advance!

I am trying to stop the "check for automatic updates" on itunes, however it only seems to apply for a single user, even if I copy that profile back to the default user.

Does anyone know a way around this? I've snopped around the registry and can't find any relavent keys.

Cheers

Under Windows 2000 Pro can I lock a user/group out of a control panel?

My current implementation is to change the permission for the user/group of the control panel (WINNT/system32/*.cpl). Don't know if this is the best way to do this but it surly will not allow the user into the control panel. But can the user still edit their own space of the registry? Either way, is there a better way? I was hoping the Group Policy Tool, but I couldn't find anything (but then again I didn't look to hard)

How do I set the default screen saver for all users?
I was able to look around the registry and found scrnsave (logon.scr)
Didn't want to change the setting thinking that was the screen saver for the login window
Next is the ScreenSaverTimeOut defined is second or minutes? 600 is default (15 minutes, seconds seems right)

Last, Can I disable auto mounting of networked drives?
I know of the "Don't attempt this" check box, if you decline a password, but that doesn't seem to hold if you remount during the user session. A alt solution to this could be auto dismount of all network volumes on logout? Is that possible? I thought there was a Shutdown/Logout folder (like Startup but executed at logoff) but I'm currently having a brain fart.

Thanks for your time and help in advanced.

I have Word 2002, SP3, for Windows Office XP Pro.

My problem is I want to permanently turn OFF the autocorrect options (all of them: correct initial capitals, correct first letters of days, etc etc, autoformat, as well as auto text and auto type).

Yes, I have unchecked all the boxes in Tools > Autocorrect Options, the problem is I have to painstakingly go though all the boxes every time I open Word and uncheck them. My setups are not remembered.

I can't figure out how to make these options stay set this way.

I've tried installing the Office Resource Kit and setting a system policy (though I am the only user on this PC), but no success.

I had to rebuild my system a month ago -- before that, I never had any problems, Word seemed to remember exactly my preferred set up and saved autocorrect options etc to the normal template.

I checked the normal template and it is in Doc Settings folder where it should be.

I searched the forums and Word help but can't seem to find any advice, mainly because most people usually run these options and they only wish to modify the instances where they apply, rather than permanently disable them.

Please help! Much appreciated! Thanks!
