Windows 7: Domain/User acount problems (sbs 2008 and Win.7)

Domain/User acount problems (sbs 2008 and Win.7)

Hey all, thanks for your time.

I have a quick question regarding user accounts. I seem to have a conflicting accounts that i don't really know how to fix...


Domain: jonathanwes.local
Computer name: MAUDIB
Domain user name: Wesley
Comp User Name: Wesley

So i downloaded SBS 2008 so i could play around w/ some of the new features over 2003 (for 60 days). I only added my computer to the domain and have removed it from the domain (server expired).

I used the user account wesley as my domain log in which is also the same as my computer log in. But ever since i removed myself from the domain, i seem to have a brand new "wesley" account (which seems like it was JUST created).

If i go into C:\Users, it's lists two user accounts (Wesley and Wesley.MUADIB).
I seem to be logging into the Wesley account when ALL my stuff is on the other account.

I have tried just dragging and dropping, all the files onto the "new" account, but that only moved the files and not all of my settings.

tldnr: I have two of the same user accounts after removing myself from the domain, and can only seem to log into one.


I think my next step is to rename Wesley.MUADIB to Wesley (Replacing/deleting the "new" one)

**EDIT II** I seem to be having problems messing with Wesley.MUADIB because it is locked.... Still working on it though.

I figured it out.

Because it was a new user the "Show hidden files" where off, so every time i was moving my old stuff back in, it wasn't copying the actually settings.

Although, i still have stupid little check-mark boxes in the top left hand corner of EVERYTHING.
any ideas why?
