Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

To logon to the system account, you simply

download a set of very useful Pstools from Windows Sysinternals.


Unzip and copy Psexec.exe to your system32.

In CMD, type "psexec -i -d c:\windows\regedit.exe" and enter.

A powerful Regedit will then pop up under your service.

You can also load and view other Sam and Security hives without using any 3rd party software.

How the System account is used in Windows:


"Some up until now have said minlogon puts one as the default user"

It depends on what account is logged on. E.g. in SP1, after minlogon, one logon as Owner, this one is logged on as Default user, and the Default User folder will be created in C:\Documents and Settings. If logged on as Administrator, then the Administrator account.

Edit: after minlogon, one would use the Default folder in C:\Documents and Settings, as a computer users, perhaps a super one.
