Windows 7: Permission/Rights issue with main profile after Windows Reinstallation

Permission/Rights issue with main profile after Windows Reinstallation

It's starting with MMC has detected an error in a snap-in and will unload it. Now, it's affecting other apps like Adobe Reader and Revo Uninstaller. I have full Admin rights and I can do most things, I cant say all since i havent tried everything.

I download a cool tool that's an Explorer Add that allows me to "Take Ownership" of a file if I want to but that hasnt helped. In fact, gotten me into more trouble.

This MMC issue and rights issue only affects this profile. I have checked other users who have Admin Privileges and I dont have the MMC issue. I created a dummy profile and that works fine too. Something within my profile got corrupted. I dont want to use or create another profile if i can help it. I have quite a bit of apps that are configured to my profile alone.

As far as MMC goes, I tried a few suggestions from MS but they did not work. I think my first step should be to resolve the MMC issue? If so, how?

thanks. yeah. i did try it before. however, i wasnt able to find how to open the "server manager". i still get a long "reading data" when in mmc. the problem is not being able to open MMC, I can but it crashes and I get this error message: MMC has detected an error in the snap-in and will unload it

i think the issue has gotten worse (not related to that suggetion I believe). today I went to log into the the other profile where MMC was working fine previously and I was startled to see Windows setuping the desktop profile of that user who also has admim privileges. A bubble appeared in the task bar that this is a temporary profile and to look at my event log or call my system administrator. I dont know where to look or why this temporary profile was created.

The problem seems to lie within Windows SP1. I previously uninstalled it but the reminants remained causing this problem. There were no issues with the "updated" Windows 7 upgrade. However, I decided to take a risk to see if the problem would reoccur AFTER updating to SP1 and Bingo...it did. Dang Windows 7 SP 1: https://www.sevenforums.com/windows-u...ap-issues.html

Suggestions anyone?

Just an observation, my Windows 7 installation got messed up with rights issues after installing Windows 7 SP1. Everything was fine yesterday (when I "upgraded...again") back to Windows 7. Afterwards, I installed SP 1. I did check everything prior to downloading SP 1 and everything was fine.

Today I realized I had the same issues, like local cache rights issues, I was not able to uninstall or use system restore to remove SP1. Previously, I was able to do so Now, I have a few posts on my dilemma. I cannot do the "upgrade"/repair install again because the system sees I have SP 1 installed.

What I also have realized just the other day was I changed my user name from USER to my name. I read an article a while ago on MS Windows Live help website about changing your default user name. One MSVP, iirc suggested changing the registry settings. I did that, but didn't realize that in the process things got screwed up. This is what I believe caused my rights issues. I havent changed my name from USER after doing a complete new fresh install and I dont have rights issues.
