    this is just from curiosity - Documents and Settings on WIN10


    I was just playing with explorer settings..and disabled "hide protected operating system files".


    In C:\ I have now folder "Documents and Settings", with little icon like shortcut, if I'll try to open it, I'll just get error about permission.


    Anybody knew WHY windows 10(maybe 7,8,8.1 have it too) have this? I mean.. It isn't something bad, but just interesting. (Yeah, I know it is from days Windows XP)

    PS: Sorry for mistakes.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
