I can see my personal profile when I am logged in, and I see other user's public profiles. How do I see my own public profile, even if i log out or in?

    Now, with a recent release, users CAN see what their public profile looks like, just like other users could see before. now, users can see their profile by clicking on their profile icon at the top upper right corner, and choosing "My Profile"...this shows you your public profile, while "my Account" shows what users used to see as their profile.

Hi Wallace - As of todya, you cannot view your own public profile when signed in. You can however sign out and then visit your profile page: http://www.fixya.com/users/wallace-waffle-764

Hope that helps!

    There was a new update last week. You can now view your public profile by signing in and clicking on your avatar at the top right of the screen. In the dropdown, click on the My Profile link to view your public profile.

I can't signon


Sign on to what? Your computer? If you ever could "sign in" and not now, possibly your user profile became corrupted. It is not too hard to create a new user profile. My instincts are that this is not the problem, however.

Are you trying to log in to your account or some other person's account. The last user of the computer typically has their log in screen retained. Check USER ACCOUNTS on the computer via the control panel. Can anyone else log in? Has an administrator assigned a password to you computer account?

If you can not sign on because you set up a password and can not recall it, you likely would have to use a password recovery disc.

A remarkable number of times, if there is a user name and password, the user fails to log on because they either type their password in as their user name or the are using capitals and the password was lower case. And, of course, to sign in, you use your user name and your password. If this is a home system, you may not even have a password on the system and the problem may be something else.

It would be helpful to know the computer manufacturer and model number and operating system when addressing these questions.

Preventive Virus Removal Procedures


There may be some of you that have never thought about the power of User Accounts. User Accounts is a Graphic User Interface that has options to create new user accounts. Even though you are the only person using your computer, this is a good feature to setup.
The reason you want to setup this feature is because it can be used to backdoor a virus that has taken control of your account.
Here are the steps to setup User Accounts:
Click the Windows Logo
Click Control Panel
Navigate and click on User Accounts
Click on Turn User Account On and Off
Click Continue
Check Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer
Press Ok
Click Manage Another Account
Click Continue
Click Create a New Account
In the box type Administrator for a user name.
Select Administrator as the account type
Click Create Account
Click on the Administrator account
Click Change the Password
Create a password with one capital letter, one number, one special character and at least 7 characters long.
Keep that password in a safe place.

Reasoning: Each person who logs on to a computer has a profile, this profile is associated to that persons account. A profile is generically in a path like c:/users/ACCOUNT NAME/documents and settings/my documents. If a virus takes over this profile you will not be able to use Internet Explorer or any program like a virus remover application.
This is why you create another account.
When you logon with your Administrator account you will be able to access Internet Explorer and the virus remover software.
MalwareBytes has been proven to be an affective virus removal application, that is currently free as well.

Control your Digg privacy settings


Like Facebook and many other social networking sites, Digg has several privacy options that (if you don't watch them closely) could allow complete strangers to find out personal information about you. For any web site that you join, it's a good idea to check the privacy settings as soon as your account is created.

When you sign up with Digg, your privacy settings by default are configured so that anyone visiting the site can view your full name, age, gender, and location, and even search for you by your email address. Some users may be okay with giving out all of this information, but many people probably are not (and are likely not even aware that this information has been made public).

To change your privacy settings on Digg, log into your account, go to your profile (click the Profile link along the top) and click the Settings tab under your name. Your basic settings will be listed under Personal Info and Photos, and you can view the Advanced Options by clicking "Show Advanced Options" below the Photos settings.

To make your information as private as possible, choose "Nobody" for each setting -- or, if you want to share some of the information with your friends, you can set it for "My Friends." Look through each of the settings and decide how much of your personal data you want to make public. When you've made all of the changes you want, click the Save Changes button at the bottom to make the changes take effect.

Computer says loading personal settings then just sits there, will not boot any further


Hi, There is an issue with your User profile on the computer. The option that you can do is to boot to safe mode with networking, you need to press F8, after you turn on the computer to get to the boot menu screen to choose safemode with networking. then choose to log in to admin account. After logging in kindly create a new user account. And then reboot to normal mode again and log on to the new user account you created. If you cannot log on to safemode with networking, you can choose the Last Known Good Configuration option.
Thank you for using Fixya, you recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

Sad to think people can post rude, crude and ugly remarks on face book for everyone to see just because they are angry. A recent post about my deceased father was uncalled for and these remarks should be...


There are rules that facebook is implementing for proper posting of message on the users wall especially if its public viewed. If you find some racism or hate speech posted on a wall of a certain person and it is shown in public, there are 3 ways where you can stop (or possibly block) this person from using their facebook account.
1. If the person turns on you, you can block him/her from seeing your profile or interacting with you in any way. On the Account menu, select Private Setting. From the Block list, click Edit list. You can type in the name or the email address of the user you want to block and click the Block This User button.
2. If the person is posting hate speech or indecent words against another person (in your case, your father) report his profile with his hate speech attached to your report. On your homepage, click the name of the person that post the hate speech comment, to go directly to his profile page. Find on the lower left part of his page the Report/Block this Person button, click it. Leave a check on the two box associated with Report this person. Choose the reason that best describe his/her remarks. Choose the locations where the remarks is posted and click the link. Leave a check on the box associated with it and click Report.
3. If a link was posted directly from your wall, you can check your e-mail inbox and find the mail associated with that remarks. On that message you will find a link to Block that person.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Dell Studio Laptop- Cannot Log On Message- User Profile Service Failed Log on User Profile cannot be loaded


I had one case like this before where there was another user on the machine who loaded the user profile hive in the registry and then forgot to unload it. Therefore when the user tried to log in, it gave them the message just like yours because it's "in use" by the registry. If there is another user on your machine, please ensure that this person unloaded the hive in the registry. And then try logging in again. Please let me know if the problem persists. If my suggestion works, please do rate me. Thanks.

The computer won't log me on.


Make a backup copy of all your data, including passwords, emails, settings, etc

Find another windows xp computer whether its a friends or another computer you have and get a memory stick or external hard drive ( which you will need ) on the working computer go into

c:\documents and settings

make a copy of the default user folder and copy that over the one on your laptop and try again.

I rebooted my system in 'safe mode' (which allowed me to login as
administrator), moved my files to the public area, and then deleted my
profile (using the Users option in Control Panel).

When I rebooted again, in normal mode, I could login as administrator, and
then moved my files back and rebuilt my profile manually.

The only problem was my forgetting about e-mail messages, which I did not
backup and have been lost permanently. Ug!!!

Error code 80070005


ngkimfatt:
It could be Permissions problem, try assigning full admin rights to the person logging in on the local computer and then try logging into hotmail if this does not help:
You have to delete the local profile of the person who is trying to logon to hotmail. To delete the profile:
log on to the local computer as an administrator, (you might have to restart the machine before doing this to release any profiles).
-go to c drive, documents and settings, simply delete the profile of the person who is trying to log onto hotmail.
-Make another user or the same username, assign appropriate rights and log on, you will be fine.
NOTE: I FULLY RECOMMEND TO PLEASE BACKUP ANY IMPORTANT DATA FROM C DRIVE OF THAT PERSON'S PROFILE TO ANOTHER PLACE LIKE D DRIVE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE.
