Hello and thank you for stopping by to look, help, or participate as I try to find help to help reveal the cause(s).
I am having issues with a computer. The user environment is mainly one user, but the machine is physically accessible by all people in that area.
The machine is an e-machines EL1352-43 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (Service Pack 1).
The most recent issue was being locked out of both of the created accounts. "Administrator" and "Guest" were disabled. There is a created admin account and a user account; these were both not accessible via the known passwords. I was able to scratch the old passwords, but my attempt to access those accounts are thwarted by "Your account has time restrictions that prevent you from logging on at this time."
I have enabled the Administrator account and gained access. I have not gained access to the other two created accounts. I have read about the need for User Manager for Domains to set logon hours. I have downloaded usrmgr.msi from Microsoft and installed it on the computer in question via the Administrator account. When I try to run the application usrmgr.exe
"The program can't start because NETUI0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. "
I found an article that states the need for Remote Server Administration Tools; so I tried to install these tools without the proper research; they do not apply to my version. However, I did turn off the Parental Controls and gained access to the user account. Now, I'm stuck with the last account; I went back to the Parental Controls and switched the created Admin account to a limited user account. Now log off the user and back to the Administrator account. Then I switched the user account back to an Administrator. I feel as though I have both my accounts and the Administrator account is active for now.
Thanks for reading thought all that business...
Now, I am looking for help to investigate the deeper side of things and be sure there are no unwanted network holes, traffic problems, or other exploits. I have been using netstat, tasklist, cports, task manager, windows firewall, RogueKillerx64, Viper Business Managed AV, dds, FRST64, and the Internet as a resource.
For now, the computer in question is resting without an Internet connection and awaits further instructions.
