In an effort to avoid what happened to my laptop (kids installing questionable things and visiting questionable sites), I’m setting up User accounts for them so that they won’t have Administrator privileges. Yes, my learning curve can be steep.
The problem is that when I try to log in any of the User accounts in order to test them out, I get the error message, “Your account is configured to prevent you from using this computer. Please try another computer.” I have tried creating multiple User accounts, and each user account gives me the same error. I do not have any parental controls implemented on any of the User accounts which are generating this error message.
I found a website last night that walked me through making a change to the registry fix some kind of call error which some folks had reported as causing this problem, but when I looked in the registry, the value they said I should change already had the good value.
Does anyone here have any suggestions for allowing the use of User accounts in Windows 7?
Thanks in advance!
