Unable to lock user profile in SteadyState RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Steady State 2.5 on a Windows XP computer.  While troubleshooting a problem, I unlocked the user profile I was troubleshooting.  When I went to lock the profile, I put a check in the box to lock the profile in General settings and it looked as though it would lock.  But it cames back and the user profile still says it's unlocked.  During initial installation, I was able to lock it with no problems.  This is the first time I've had to unlock it and it is not allowing me to re-lock the profile.  Any suggestions?

    Hi Jim, according to the symptom, Windows SteadyState seems to be unable to change ntuser.dat to ntuser.man. This can be a user profile corrupt issue. Please create a new user or create a new user profile to test out.

    ------------

    Also the issue can be related to the windows disk protection being turned on to remove all changes at restart. If this is the case, you can do so:

     

    1. Switch the disk protection option to retains all changes permanently.

    2. Lock the user profile in SteadyState.

    3. Log off or restart to commit the  changes to the disk.

    4. Log on as a administrator again to check if the user profile has been locked.
