Everybody wants to tweak their systems to be secured. But what if something goes wrong? And you don't want/can reinstall Windows Xp because it takes too much time and you need your computer to be up and running in a couple of minutes. There is a simple solution and a more complicated one. The simple solution is to restore your Windows from a backup. If you didn't made one you should try the complicated one.
You can reset the security settings in two simple steps. Let me show you how. First open a new command prompt window. After that type exactly this command: secedit /configure /cfg %windir%repairsecsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose. After you execute it you will receive a message that the task is completed but you will also see a warning message. Just ignore it.
You should know that after you reset the security settings theÂ standardÂ user accounts are removed from the Users group. This is Â why now we will have add the standard accounts to the Users group. Open a new command prompt window. For every standard account that is missing from the log on or switch user screen you should type the following command: net localgroup usersÂ accountname /add.
That's it. Next time play safely :)
