    Hi everyone
    :confused:
    I did some trial upgrade for KIS 2013 ,and probably some Win 7 updates simultaneously ,and somehow CORRUPT the built in ADMIN account in Win 7 Ultimate x86 with this error ,when I tried to return back my original settings to default :

    "Local Users and Groups :

    The folowing error occured while attempting to read the properties for the user Administrator:

    The group name could not be found." !!!


    Also to my another "POwer Users" account the same error !!!
    I did try System Restore to previous point but NO succes .o_O

    Cause I'm not a Win Registry "expert" , I hope that someone know HOW to return BACK Original-DEfault settings for the built In ADMIN account without reInstall new Windows 7 partition !!!


    THANKS !!! :)

    I recommend trying to take ownership of whatever is saying it’s meant for Admins, more info here (Never mind I can't post links because I'm a noob apparently). If you have no success then attempt to go into CMD and run a SFC Scan, "SFC /SCANNOW".

    If you can't login to Windows then try booting Windows in Safe Mode with Networking and see if you can access CMD. If not you will need Microsoft's Diagnostic and Recovery Toolset which can conveniently be found here (Nevermind again, I can't post links because I'm a noob apparently). You will then need to install it on another PC and create a Windows PE Recovery Disk. Then you can boot into a PE and use networking to access CMD and run an SFC Scan. You need to be online to run a SFC Scan so make sure you are.

    Sorry for not being able to post the links maybe someone with “The Power” can do it for me.
