  1. Accidentally logged into Administrator profile on start up and can't find my regular profile


    I was starting my computer as always and was going to choose my profile but accidentally pressed on the Administrator profile. Didn't think much of it as I could go into settings and change the profile, but it began asking me for the profile setup options you get when on a clean windows install and became worried. I might've done a mistake because I proceeded to restart it in order to log into my regular profile but I didn't have the option to do so anymore, automatically logging me into the Admin account. Can anyone tell me how to go back into my regular profile?

    :)

  3. Can't add a profile

    Hi Jasiek,

    One of the possible reasons why you are experiencing issues with logging in a new user profile on a computer is due to a user profile corruption. To address your concern, we suggest that you create the new user profile using the built-in administrator account
    on your device.

    To enable the built-in administrator account, follow these steps:

    • On Search type CMD to open Command Prompt. Right click on
      CMD then choose Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Yes.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type net user administrator /active:yes then hit the Enter key.
    • You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice on the login screen.

    Note: The built-in administrator account has more privileges than a regular administrator account. Privileges that can easily generate a conflict on your system. We only recommend enabling the built-in administrator account for troubleshooting
    purposes and you have to disable it once you are done creating a new user profile.

    To disable the built-in administrator account, access the Command Prompt with administrator privileges. Type the command
    net user administrator /active:no then hit the Enter key. The built-in administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen.

    Don't hesitate to reply on this thread if further assistance is needed.

    copying profiles in Vista Home Premium

    Hello all. i have Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. I have one user profile "Andy". I would like to copy this profile to a new profile called "Andrew" and then delete the "Andy" profile.

    I tried to create the Andrew profile through user accounts in control panel, but sometimes the 'Andrew' user doesn't show up in the users folder, and sometimes there's a TEMP folder instead. When I fo into the Andrew user account, it says

    Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with the default profile for the system. Please see the event log for details or contact youru administrator"

    What steps do i need to take to create the user profile for "Andrew", copy the "Andy" profile into the "Andrew" user file, and delete the "Andy" profile? I read where you should disable UAC and i have tried that, but to no advail. Also, do I need to enable the built in administrator? Thanks for you help.
