User Login - Access Denied


T

Tony

Hi,

I am having a problem logging onto Win2k as a normal
user. This error message appears:

"Windows cannot copy the file C:\Documents and
Settings\Default User\Local
Settings\History\History.IE5 to location C:\Documents and
Settings\NINEuser.class2000\Local
Settings\History\History.IE5. Access Denied"

Then a second window appears:

"Windows cannot log you on because the profile cannot be loaded."

I am able to logon OK as administrator. I would imagine that win2k is
trying to copy a history from the Default User profile to the NINEuser
profile when a user was trying to logon with that profile? Is that the
case?

I tried adding a new user profile (standard user) when I was logged in
as Administrator. When I logged out and tried to log back in as the
newly created user. I still encountered the "Cannot load profile :
Access Denied" message.

Anyone any ideas? Does Win2k try and pick everything up from the
Default User profile? If so, might this problem therefore be a result
of a problem with the Default User profile? How could this be fixed?

I'm also unable to login under a newly created user. The last action
that I had performed before this problem developed was that I encrypted
"My Documents" while I was logged in as Admin. I've then decrypt the
folder in hopes that this would correct the problem... but it did not.

Hey Tony,

I would try some of these other sites:

The link below bescribes some similar problems to yours across many
platforms (Windows 2000, Windows Nt 4.0, Windows 2003 Server...etc.).
It also contains a tool which may prove to be useful to you not for
correction (it seems) but for prevention.

Adam,

The support article you provided (
http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX504530 ) solved the problem.
Although the original Default User folders was 'not' missing, none the
less, I deleted the folder then recreated it as instructed. I
restarted the pc and presto... I was able to login as a super user vs
an admin.

Thanks a lot for your help!

PS for those with similar issue.... by default the "Default User"
folder is hidden. You'll need to unhide this folder by going into
Explorer, selecting Folder Option, View, then select Show hidden Filed
and Folders.
