"The number of connections to this computer is limited and all connections are in use right now. Try connecting later or contact your system administrator."


Every user other than my administrator account is unable to log-on locally. The above message is the result for every other user when log-on is attempted locally. Network share user account allows access all shares specified, but only over the network.


I have created a standard user account to act as a guest account before using this same desktop computer machine on a previous installation of the same OS. I also had the same user set-up as well (see below).


I am confused what I should even look at or try to investigate. I've not attached any speccy report since I do not see how that will help.


Windows 7 Users:

Standard User account that controls network share access. - Single User accesses shares with these credentials.

My admin account.

New user as Standard User

Guest account disabled.


Fixes attempted:

Reboot computer with lan unplugged. attempted log into user accounts. Still, only Admin allows login.

Registry editing to increases 'connections'. Did not work


What I have not done:

Created or edited local user, security, or other policies.
