all about updatususer

what is the updatususer account in my accounts for my Windows 7 Home - Microsoft Community

yes, c:users\administrator exists; no c:users\administrator\desktop does not exist (as stated, only one folder c:users\administrator\appdata existed).

Strange it does exist at all!! Someone has ever logged otherwise it doesn't exit. But then you should have more folders.

In elevated command prompt
Code:
Net user administrator /active:yes
logon under that account. works?

thanks, yes I've read the microsoft kb pages above...couldn't quite digest them, but now what I've done is create what I guess are somehow missing folders under 'administrator' user folder and see if that solves the first bunch of errors (as per scenario 2 resolution in the link above).
the last error (scenario 1 in the link above) doesn't seem to make sense, since the offending folder 'podcast' is there, but empty...no custom folders as in the scenario 1 cause. so not sure how to remedy this.

I should have stated, the machine was just serviced by samsung (new hard drive, only 1+month old computer go figure).
when replacing hard drive, they did something like take an image of the old drive to preserve microsoft signature installation of windows 7 (I had purchased the computer from microsoft retail store, and understand this edition to be much faster). so, could it be a legacy of that image perhaps when I first turned-on the brand new machine a month ago, and could it not be there now? if so, could I just delete it (instead of adding the missing folders to trick windows backup)?
of course, one is always afraid to delete something 'administrator', but as stated I already have set-up an admin account under my own name so then does the 'administrator' user become unnecessary, I wonder?

Built-in administratot is always a good thing to have. You an use it if your account is corrupt. Are you doing a system image backup or normal file backup? Have you linux on system, or ever had linux. It can be a GRUB problem
