    Persistent User Profile Access After UAC Authentication


    Hi All. I've got what I find to be a strange thing happening with one of my computers. I am an admin and was logged in with an end user's account. I needed to grab a file from another user's profile on the computer (C:\users\otheruser) so I browsed to the file and used my admin creds to authenticate when the UAC prompt popped up. However, the original user who was logged into the system now has access to the other user's folder and I can't get it to go away. Is this supposed to be a persistent setting? I rebooted a few times, but the access is still there. All other user profiles are blocked for browsing (UAC prompts for access), but this one seems to have stored something saying that access was granted once so should always be granted.

    I hope that all makes sense. Any help is appreciated!

    :)

  2. The User Profile Service failed to sign in on Windows 10

    Hi Arne,

    To assist you better, I would like to knw whether you had installed any third party application or made any recent changes to any settings?

    This issue may arise due when the User Profile Service has been disabled and we nee to enable it manually. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    Please follow the below steps and check if that helps:

    • Press Windows + R to open
      Run
      command, type Services.msc and press Enter.
    • Search for User Profile Service, right click on it and
      start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to
      Automatic
      .
    • Now check if you are able to log-in.
    If the issue still persists, check the status of the UAC.

    1. Type UAC or User Account Access on the search bar.

    2. From UAC window, I suggest you to bring down the level to default and check if it helps.

    Hope the information helps to resolve the issue that you are facing when trying to create a new user account. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    Persistent User Profile Access After UAC Authentication

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
