Hello. I'm very new to Win7, and this is my first time here at this forum. I just upgraded from XP about a week ago. I was wondering if Win7 has a Documents and Settings folder similar to XP. I go to Windows Explorer>C:>Users. When I double click on Users, I see three folders, one is Default, one with my name, and one named Public. No Documents and Settings folder. Am I doing something wrong? I have show hidden folders enabled.

Following a massive headache with the many failed attempts of figuring out this same issue with Vista, I'm back again with Windows 7. We pulled our Vista attempts with the 1,100 new computers we got and dumped XP Pro on them which has worked great.

Windows 7 is looking to be very attractive, and we're anxious to upgrade to it pending one key thing.

We utilize default profiles here very, very much. Them not working would be a massive headache and would almost completely warrant staying with XP Pro all together, even though XP isn't all that future-proof.

How do you set a default user profile in Windows 7?

I work at a large school district with an easy 1,500+ computers. We have many schools, many buildings, many libraries, many labs, many special ed rooms, etc etc... the list goes on and on. In every instance, there's different desktop icons that are needed, different printers, different print settings, etc. In short - we need local profiles. Period. We just do.

I have tried many, many, many times to use the unattend.xml file to sysprep the computer, which supposedly does the profile parameters there. It just... doesn't work. I'm sorry but it didn't work, even with the very detailed tutorials that I had.

So anyway, here I am giving it another shot. Vista is done for and we're focusing on Windows 7 only. Is there an easier way to set the default profile in Windows 7?

I need Help I have been Fighting for three days now with this, Ok First I Downloaded the student windows 7 well that was a mess, getting the ISO, well thats fixed next I installed Windows 7 everything seemed great and I typed in my username and cd key and loaded windows that was awsome next it wanted to restat so I did but when it restarted it only came up in a black screen and with the pointer of the mouse on the screen. I have thought to download new drivers for the Graphics card andmabey the monitor but havent the foggiest idea on where to begin to fix the problems thanks
right now I am in Safe mode with networking which is great.

Hi guys, please can someone help me.
I am new to livemail, i have just installed Windows 7 on a new harddrive, a fresh install as previously I have been using XP pro and could not upgrade directly.

Before removing the XP hdd, I backed up my email account settings from outlook xpress to .iaf files, exported my address book as a .wab and copied my mail folders which are .dbx files to my separate D:/ drive.

My question is, how do i now get the mail account settings, email folders and address book into live mail?
I cant see any way?

I have tried manually entering my account details (i have 4 separate email accounts) but only one seems to be working. I'm assuming some of the settings i have manually entered are incorrect.

I have since tried to reconnect my old XP hdd to go back into outlook and make a note of all the settings, but for some reason it seems i may have corrupted the windows on that drive and it wont boot. So i really need to be able to import the .iaf files into livemail if possible.

Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone,
I read through the sticky posts before I posted and it appears, after going through "perfmon /report," my memory is low.

This PC came with Vista but I downgraded to XP because I hated it. Yesterday I did a clean install of Windows 7, 64bit. I wasn't going to because my gut said I didn't have enough RAM(2GB). I was told by 2 friends who have Windows 7 that 2GB would be fine(it can run on 1GB?), especially since this PC was built for Vista.

It ran GREAT yesterday, I am very happy with Win7. Today it started freezing and now it is running so slow I can't bear it. I have only had Internet Explorer and Windows Live Messenger running.

Here is a copy of my system info, directly off the manufacturer's site.
Emachines: W5233
CPU : Intel® Pentium® D Processor 925 (Dual Core)
64-bit technology support with Intel® EM64T Technology
(3.0GHz | 2 x 2MB L2 Cache | 800MHz FSB)

Operating System : Genuine Windows Vista® Home

PremiumChipset : Intel® 945GC

Memory : 1024MB DDR2 dual channel memory
(2 × 512MB), 667MHz, (PC2-5300)
Expandable to 2GB (I am maxed out)
2 DDR2 slots (Total) | 0 DDR2 slot (Available)

Hard Drive : 250GB SATA II (7200rpm, 8MB cache)

Graphics: Upgraded to ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series

So my questions are:
Do I need to go back to XP and just wait for Win7 until I get a new PC?
Anything I can do to make this work?
If I install 32bit version would it be better?
What happens if I buy more RAM and install it, even though it says it is only expandable to 2GB?

I tried searching on this topic but I must be "search facility challenged" because I can't find any answers. I have a new Lenovo laptop with Vista Ultimate 32. It has no apps (other than bloatware) installed. I've cloned it and I want to get it converted to W7 ASAP. The "free" W7 32 upgrade from Lenovo is "being processed", hence I don't know when I'll get it. Meanwhile I've found a deal on a retail W7 Pro upgrade. If I do the clean install thing does anyone know of potential problems since I'm stepping down 1 grade? I doubt that I will ever need BitLocker so not running W7 Ultimate is not a show stopper for me. Plus the retail Pro upgrade has the 64 bit version and I have 8GB of memory on the laptop. So I'll try a clean install of the 64 bit version and see how far I get with getting my XP apps up and running. TIA for you help.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 64 on my XP machine which has realtek audio integrated into its geforce 6100sm-m motherboard. I've installed the latest vista 64 drivers for the audio and checked all the connections, but when attempting to configure in 7's audio configuration only the two main speakers are responsive when I click on them. Additionally, when I try and configure them using the Realtek HD audio manager utility that hangs out in the taskbar overflow, I can choose 5.1 speaker under the drop down menu, but the utility doesn't change or seem to register the switch, and reverts back to a blank option when I click ok.

Was just curious if anyone else was having a hard time getting their surround sound to work.

So I have been getting 5-6 different kinds of blue screens randomly, it could be between 10 minutes or an hour but they come no matter what. I had the same problem with the computer when I was running Windows XP Home Edition, although some of these were issues with my graphics card. So I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium after formatting my disk and recreating the partition at least 10 times (I did use windows easy transfer to bring some files over). This however did not help and for some reason I even experienced BSOD whilst trying to install windows 7. Soo now I recieve random BSOD quite frequently. All drivers are the latest, I have run various memory diagnostic tools without success, i've used chkdsk /f more times then I care to count. Also whilst the BSOD seem random enough i've noticed its always when i'm downloading (watching videos etc.) or installing, that said if I leave it idle to long it freezes. Soo any thoughts?

Also, not sure if this helps, I seem to recieve alot of application errors, sometimes right before the BSOD sometimes out of no where. Usually its a matter of restarting the program but most of the time I have to restart my PC. And sorry about the long post but I figured the more detailed the information the easier it is to pinpoint and fix the problem.

EDIT* I was able to get memory diagnostic to work just now and it told me I have a memory problem and that I was to contact the manufacturer. Go ahead and delete this post if you are unable to help

1) Only for this file, use the device manager to search for an update. It's the NVIDIA network adapter driver:

nvm62x32 nvm62x32.sys Fri Oct 17 17:00:39 2008

It should be a 2010 version when done.

2) Reboot. If issues persist, post new crash dump(s) and include a screen shot of CPU-Z spd tab and memory tab.

Hi I saw a similar post for a person having a similar problem:


I just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate x32 this past weekend and have been tweaking several drivers. My main issues that I have isolated so far have been my Linksys WUSB54G v4 wireless that I downloaded the direct Ralink driver for to get to work. Everything has gone smoothly but I have had to disable Shockwave Flash (i.e. MySpace music players, YouTube, etc.) since those have caused Blue Screen of Death several times. However I Just had another one while doing home office work without flash sites running...any suggestions????

I've uploaded a ZIP of my last few Minidump files. Also see my profile for my system specs.

FYI I was running:
*Microsoft Outlook Professional 2003
*Firefox (w/Drupal editing on 1 tab)
*IE 8
*VPN connection

Join Date Aug 2011 Age 18 Posts 15 Re: Users turning off UAC put their PCs at risk, says Microsoft That's interesting. One of the first things I do when I do a fresh install, is to turn off UAC as it irritates me with the pop-ups constantly. I haven't been infected with a virus since Windows XP though, so I think I got a hold of it all.

Interesting read anyways, thanks for posting it

Two weeks ago I built a brand new PC for work use (Adobe cs4 suite mainly).

I was using XP 32 bit. I did not upgrade to Vista as I had no problems with XP.

I wanted a 64 bit system so I could have access to more ram for HD video editing.

Also I sometimes use a PC at a friend’s office which has the same specs as my new build (see below) which so far work has worked without any problems and is wonderfully fast, responsive, and reliable.

However, my new PC blue screens every time I do something that is CPU or memory intensive.

So far it has blue screened while trying to open a large premiere pro CS4 project, during two attempts to render from premiere pro projects that did open, while importing music files into a new install of ITunes and while trying to play some large video files with GOM player and WMP.

I tried to use a debugger to interpret the DMP file with no success. I have no idea what any of it means.

I have had to go back to my old XP machine which is hugely disappointing.

I have downloaded the latest drivers for the GPU and onboard audio for the motherboard.

I would be hugely grateful if someone could help me diagnose the problem

I have attached a zip file with the DMP files and a file called ' WER-48937-0.sysdata.xml' (win7 told me this contains info on the crash when it re-started).

Below are the specs of the new build.

Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping

Asus P6T SE Intel X58

OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9

GeForce GTX 260

Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB x2 (data)

Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB (system OS and APPs)

Corsair TX 650W ATX

Thanks in advance

I am trying to install win 7 on my E-machine T3516a. It copy's windows files. Then screen says starting windows.
Then I get a blue screen with the error "*** STOP: 0x0000005c (0x0000010B,0x00000003,0x00000000,0x00000000)
I have spent 2 hours talking to win7 technical support with no luck.
My Emachine was upgraded to 1 gig ram, it is a celeron 3.2 ghz w/ 120 gig hard drive and on-board ati 128 meg video card.
It came w/windows xp preinstalled. Its says vista ready on the front of the machine,
but installing vista gives the same results (blue screen) I am using a factory (store bought) version of win 7 upgrade version 3 user licence.

Hey all. I have searched around for a couple days now to find some info on my error and resolve my problem. However, i could not find any one particular case to mine. I get a BSOD ATLEAST 5-6 times a day since my upgrade to W7. Before with XP i never had a BSOD in over 3 years.

Anyhow here is my dump log:

Hello, i've bought a pc not long ago and it was running windows 7 (64bit)
Running PERFECTLY , never a single freeze or a bsod.
Yesterday i went to my brother's office 2 play some games and i didnt take my monitor with me. There was plenty of monitors in the office so i took the first one and plugged it to my pc.
Surprisingly windows loaded with a black screen and i could move mouse but nothing was happening. So i restarted same thing black monitor nothing's happening, i plugged another monitor and another but all had same problem. Black screen after loading right where the username and password supposed to come. So i went home took my monitor and hell black screen, i decided to wait and i waited for about 15 minutes and black screen disappeared windows loaded, i thought nightmare was over but after that when i entered "starcraft2" i got a blue screen of death and pc restarted. For last 16 hours i was trying to fix this problem but nothing is helping. Windows is restarting whenever it wants , either if i enter a game such as "fallout 3 ,starcraft2, half life 2, or similar" or even when im just browsing internet. First i get message IE has stopped working windows is looking for a solution. I enter world of warcraft i get critical error game closes few minutes bsod again.
I reinstalled windows 7, bsods were still coming, i formatted drive and installed windows XP sp2 updated all drivers and still i get critical error and system restarts. I upgraded winxp to windows 7 and after installing all drivers from ATI and MSI i still get bsods i formatted drive again and install windows XP again. But im giving up, reinstalling windows and drivers just doesnt help. There must be something more advanced which a simple user cant know.. Such as maybe default onboard video card is causing problem or automatic bios update with msi live update 4 did something to the computer.
I m guessing its possible to read some info from dump file but i dont understand anything there. Can somebody help me?

Here's the current condition of the computer

Im going to install a fresh new copy of windows 7 right now and hopefully it will work but if it doesnt then i will upload a dump file.
If anybody had similar problems i would appreciate any advice.

it's a bit of a long story, but I have been battling the blue screen of death for months now on my machine.

My system specs are:
Dell Deminsion 8400 (really just the case and mobo are Dell OEM)
Antec 650w psu
Geforce 9600GT 512mb
western digital harddrive
4GB Crucial ballistix ram
Pentium 4 3.4GHz cpu (HT)
Intel (dell OEM) mobo
and recently installed Windows 7 Home 32bit

I had XP home on it before and I developed a blue screen that had the "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA" error message, and through my research, all sources suggest its faulty ram causing this. At the time, I had a 2 sets of ram sticks in, a pair of 512mb regular crucial sticks (533mhz) and a set of their ballistix sticks. I removed the regular set of sticks that left me with just the pair of ballistix sticks, and the error message went away for a few weeks (might have been a month or more) and then promptly returned.

By now, I wanted to see if the motherboard was at fault for frying ram sticks perhaps (I took a shot in the dark on that one, I'm no ace PC guru, but techicaly savvy, so I usually just dive in and get my hands dirty) and like a fool, I took it down to Geeksquad to do a diagnostic on the hardware. They only told me all my hardware was fine and it was Windows at fault.

So I thought "Great!, I've been wanting to upgrade to Windows 7, so here's a perfect opportunity!" and I purchased Windows 7 and another set of ballistix ram sticks to supplant the ones I lost before leaving me with the 4GB of 2 ballistix pairs of 1GB. Then I come home from work today and the PC screen is blue with that same page fault error message, so ofcourse my heart sank, but at the same time I knew that mean't it wasn't a software issue.....or is it?

I've checked, double checked, and triple checked the ram sticks, swapped them out in an effort to isolate the 2nd set of bad sticks (error message comes up no matter which sticks I have in), I've made sure the dimm slots were totally clean of dust and that the pins weren't damaged in any way, so now I'm at a loss at what to look at next

This problem has plagued my windows 7 installation for a very long time.... i wrote a post on these (and many other forums) before giving up on the issue a few months back and switching to a linux operating system. That's fine, i would keep using linux but i am receiving a new graphics card as a gift and i would like to try to play some pc games on my new card, and as you all know serious gaming on linux is pretty tough/near impossible.

HERE is the link to the post i made a few months back about the same problem. I'll quote it here since it's relevant:

All right so i'm usually pretty good at figuring out any problems with my pc but this ones out of my league, plus i think theres a wide range of things that it could be.

I have a somewhat old hp media center 7580n (pos, bout 3 years old) upgraded it to windows 7.

This problem appeared when i started using this computer to play video games again (only game is WoW though), but at the same time I set up winamp to play my music out of my speakers so that i could use my usb headset for speaking over ventrilo (makes sense). I started getting BSOD's with what seems to be random error messages. These messages go from "IRQL_MORE_OR_LESS_NOT_EQUAL" and "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" to "BAD_POOL_HEADER" and many more (sometimes there isn't even an error message). These bluescreens almost always happen (i say almost always because it has happened at other times) when i'm running WoW, it seems as if there's a higher chance of it happening if I'm alt-tabbing out of full screen, but I just had it happen when i was running windows mode in a really small window (less strain on the GPU).

My first guess was that it was driver related, so I went ahead and booted into safe mode, and started reinstalling/updating as many drivers as I could think of (of course the first i did was my piece of **** nvidia card driver), but that apparently has had no effect.

My next guess was that it was my RAM sticks, i move around my desktop a decent bit (didn't move it anytime around the time this problem started though) so i thought that maybe my ram sockets had warped a bit or something from all the travel. And maybe a faulty address in memory or something could explain this, so i ran memtest and it came back with no errors. So i switched the RAM sockets of my ram sticks (there's 4 sockets so i took the 2 sticks and put them in the other sockets) all had no effect. I also tried to alternate the sticks (as in run with 1 stick only) but i only ran like that for a day (had no errors) but I got fed up with running on a gig of ram and put the other one back in.

And my last guess was that something was overheating. So i downloaded CPUID hardware monitor and started paying attention to the temperatures of various components. My CPU was up to 70 -75 degrees celsius, and my GPU was up to about the same numbers during times of high stress (aka playing wow on lowest settings possible hell yeah nvidia 7300 le). The CPU temps seemed rather high so I opened it up and took an old toothbrush to the fan and the heatsink underneath it and got it what seemed like my problem. The dust in there was pretty much compacted into a fat solid layer of **** knows what. I got out all that i could, and went ahead and dusted the rest of my computer including my nvidia card (which didn't have that much dust on it). I was almost sure that was the problem. Started running again and i noticed my CPU core temperatures went from 70-75 down to 30-40 ish, and my GPU went down about an average of 10-5 degrees celsius. But apparently that's not it, since i'm still getting bluescreens. I never bothered putting the full case back on the comp i just run it case open to keep it cooler.

So now i give up and come here. I can include some of my dump files (I have about 10 or so in the folder). I have no idea how to analyze those so i didn't even try. Does anyone have ANY idea? I'm starting to get extremely frustrated. Here are my specs, i haven't bought anything new this is all stock:

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
Motherboard: ASUS A8M2N-LA (HP Name- Nodus-GL8E)
Socket AM2: Micro ATX GeForce 6150 LE
RAM: 2 GB Hynix PC2-4200 (2 X 1 GB)
Storage: Seagate 320 GB 7200RPM Serial ATA
Graphics: Asus Geforce 7300LE 128 MB PCIe
Audio: Realtek ALC 888 High Definition 8 channel compatible
PSU: Bestec 300Watt Single fan
Networking: Wired 10/100 Base T

And yes, i have tried looking at other problems similar to this one but i had no luck there.

Quick edit: Here is a screenie of BlueScreenView

http://img249.imageshack.us/img249/4347/bsodreports.jpg I have now reinstalled a nice fresh installation of windows. 100% clean. I have set up some of my applications. just a few minutes ago i got a bluescreen that seemed all too familiar. I was doing nothing intensive, in fact i was listening to music through winamp and writing on an index card when i look up and see a BSOD.

I think the fact that i had no problems running my linux os means that the problem CANNOT be hardware related (can someone confirm?). I think it MUST be a driver. I have only installed a single driver since i re-installed windows 7, the nvidia 258.96 driver for my terrible 7300 LE graphics card, which will soon be upgraded to a 9800 GTX, hence the need to use windows again.

This is an extremely frustating problem.... i have spent so many countless hours trying to resolve it only to find no solution. i would really like to try to game with this card a bit, but if i simply can't find a solution i'm probably going to try to downgrade to windows xp, and then if that doesn't solve it, switch back to ubuntu and try to play my games through wine.

Last time i posted on these forums i got 0 replies (as you can see) so i'd really really appreciate ANY advice or ideas. I plan on disabling the nvidia driver and switching back to the one that came with windows 7 and seeing if the problem is solved, but even if that solves my problem, it may ruin my gaming ambitions, right?

Thanks for reading.

Hi all,

I just bought a new HP laptop and Win7Pro upgrade disk is available with the purchase. I'm a new Win7 user and still playing around with it. I successfully activated the key.

A question came to mind though, I know the upgrade disk only allows a few times (3?) activation using my current key. In the pas when I was still using XP, I tend to format and clean install an OS every now and then. They didn't have activations back then and I could do this infinite amount of times. So, now that the new Win7 has a limit of installs/acitvations on it, does that mean I can't format my PC more than 3 times? What if I get lucky and attacked by viruses 3 times that led me to formatting my PC. Does that mean I have to kiss my genuine win7 goodbye???

I'm not sure how the activation system works. Please let me know how it is.


I upgraded from XP Pro to Win7 Ultimate using a clean install. My computer box has 2 Sata 3.0 internal hard drives. I used to be able to switch power on to the second drive and XP would recognize it and then I would have access to it.
After installing W7, I can no longer do that. If I reboot and switch power on before it boots, then I do have access.
This is one of those things that is not critical, but is just irritating. Any ideas?

Today only, you can get this $30 utility free of charge. It can help smooth your move from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7. Originally posted at The Cheapskate


In a previous Good Boot I recommended Secunia PSI to XP and Vista users, but with so many upgrading to Windows 7, I want to recommend it again.
