  1. can't create new user account


    win 10 installed on a cow chip labeled ASUS. I can't create a new account. Only have one admin account, The tab to create a new user is missing. Tried to create one through Settings. Get message the snapin cannot be used. All this started when I tried to give read only rights to usernotpresentsession.etl to get MSRT to stop restarting the pc before the scan is completed. I think this the last file scanned before MSRT crashed and rebooted. I honestly don't expect a fix from this board, I'm venting. I'm going back to my old Dell which has been running Vista for 10 years. It's more reliably than this ASUS on Win 10. I've eaten close to 30 years of MS's windows bs, I'm full. going to get an Apple ASAP.

    :)

  3. Unable to create new User account

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.


    • Are you logged in with a Microsoft account or Local account?

    • Are you trying to create new user account using Administrator account?
    I suggest you to run SFC scan.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files

    Run the System File Checker (SFC) scan to fix any corrupted files. Follow these steps:
