Windows 7: Windows 7 Profiles (Docs and Settings?)

Windows 7 Profiles (Docs and Settings?)

I'm trying to find user profiles in Win 7. Specifically 'Default User'. I'm running a network using Deep Freeze to maintain steady configuration and I need to set up printers in the default user profile. Thanks.

Welcome

All that is required is that you set it up in the user Adm account that is used most often. Give other user accounts permission to use the software if applicalble

I'm sorry, I don't think I explained my problem very well. When the computers are rebooted they revert back to the original configuration. All user profiles are deleted. When a user logs on (basically for the first time) his/her user profile is recreated from the Default User profile (at least they were under XP - where all the profiles were located in the Documents and Settings folder, including the Default User profile). I'm trying to locate the Default User profile so printer connections will automatically configure for a user when that user logs on.

Yes, was a bit of misundertanding. This will explain about the default user profile.

Thanks rich, that was exactly what I was looking for. After reading it, however, customizing Win 7 Default User appears to be a pretty convoluted process. It was MUCH easier under XP. Now I just have to try to understand the process. Thanks, again.

TY so much for your kind words and rep. Your request has not been common for me; probably why we had the miscommunication to start. If you have any other problems, I will try to help. Actually, we will both be working from the Tut, LOL.

Take care my friend, thanks again for the rep.
