Just a quick question.. hopefully save me formatting a pc and testing it myself.
If i format a pc and install windows from scratch, complete the setup and enter my name as the first user.
The pc will log me in and create a user account called "me" for example.
IF i then go directly into the
"c:\documents and settings" folder and copy my version of the default user profile over the top of the existing default profile will the default settings i have copyied over to the default user profile be copied to the administrator account when i log in for the first time? If i crate a new acount called "test" it will automaticlally copy over the defualt user settings allowing me to have set standards eg. wallpaper etc for all accounts created on this pc.
Basically my question is, as this does it for newly created accounts by pulling the defualt user settings from that folder will the administrator account use the same settings when i log in for the FIRST time to the administrator account?
I understand if i add a default user profile now my admin account will not change, but i think when you log into the admin account for the first time it must create the account settings by pulling them from somewhere ie. the defualt user profile?? therefore if i add this prfile before i ever log into the admin account will it create the account with the new default user settings..
Im really sorry for writing this over and over but to be honest i keep reading what i have typed and it does not seem to be very clear, ill appologise for that now..
I hope you all understand and hope you can help or let me know if i am way off the mark or if there is any way i can have the admin account load up with the default user settings i have stored away rather than have to go through and set up the settings for the admin account every time i set up a new pc.
God i dont seem to be making sense this morning... HELP>>
