Windows 7: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon re

There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon re

We have a Win 7 desktop at our Senior Center. I am no expert, but am the volunteer who tries to take care of our computers. I was told to make it so that the general public could not logon on to one specific computer, as it is the one we are going to use to create our newsletter, and we didn't want anyone messing with it, as there are two other computers they can use.

I went into control panel, and as best I can remember, I set up a user name and password. I do not know what a domain is, in the sense of Win 7. I get that error message every time, in spite of believing that I get the username and password correct. How can I undo what I did, so that authorized volunteers can use this machine, which happens to be the only Win 7 computer, the others being Vista or Win XP, and MS Publisher which we will be buying must run on Win 7/8?

I will do something drastic, if called for, such as opening the case and removing the BIOS battery for a while if that would reset anything germane to the problem.

I really must get an answer, or we cannot get out the next newsletter using MS Publisher.

The desktops were donated, as we are a 501(c)3 charity, 100% volunteers. We have no reinstallation disks, which I would use if we had them. That is how drastic it is. I would be willing to lose everything to get back the use of this only Win 7 computer we have.

Hi there,

If the computers are donated, most likely the Windows 7 was part of the domain network, this is why you're getting an error.

You may create a local User Account with Admin permission.

then....Downgrade the Win 7 computer from a Domain to Workgroup.

Make a note of the Computer Name, new User Name and Password, use the new User Account/LogIn when the computer restarted and the error should disappear. I'd also do Windows Updates, so that it will have the latest security patches.
