Industrial Controls developer for a Materials Handling manufacturer and integrator. I use a little bit of all the MS technologies to develop solutions for our clients. In my spare time I work on cars.

If you downvote my questions would you mind leaving a comment to let me know what you thought was lacking from my question? I always try to provide as much issue context and source code to help others understand what i'm going through and your comments will help me get better at this.

Thanks and happy coding! Try not to be a Stack Exchange elitist. Belittlement is not considered helpful. Everyone's here to learn after all.

comment Different windows explorer icon/grouping domain user vs local user
Joining the domain from home over vpn shouldn't have any effect here. I was snowed in and wanted to get it out of the way. Done it before on other win7 machines and they didn't have this issue with the user profile. I could treat this like a corrupt user profile and make myself a new one but I figured I could take an opportunity to learn and fix the actual issue instead of doing something as drastic as a new user profile.

comment How do I force Windows 7 to create a new domain profile with same name as an existing one?
I was able to move all my files over to the new profile without problems. Thanks for your assistance Frank Thomas. I ended up having to manually delete the profilelist entry even though i removed the user using the control panel manage user snap-in. The strange thing is that my user re-created okay but when I go back to the "manage user accounts" list my user didn't get added back when the new account was made. Do I need to manually add it? I don't want to end up later not being able to use easy transfer or something of the sort because of that missing entry.

comment How do I force Windows 7 to create a new domain profile with same name as an existing one?
yeah I already restored my deleted profile folder and then chopped the bak suffix off of the profilelist key so that I could at least boot back in under the account I broke. I just deleted and rebooted so hopefully it is all downhill from here.

Ah, I did not know you could manage domain accounts from the control panel user account. I'll give this a shot.

Thank you Zuul. Somehow I missed the active converter in my searches. Now you say it converts keyboard signals, what about mice?

comment What to do when I notice symptoms of mechanical printer failures?
It appears that all "normal" fast moving operations like moving the cartridge arm and pulling in new blank sheets into the feeder area are now very very slow. Watching the internal rollers there is one not moving but I am not totally sure it is supposed to move on power up. Or if the issue is bigger like stripped out teeth on a gear not engaging the roller. This thing is moving a lot slower than all other deskjets I deal with. In regards to the "10 minutes" the printer immediately starts blinking led's to indicate it is spooling the job but the print operation takes about 10 mins to complete.
