I had a Windows 7 machine with one account connected to the office domain.
I moved abroad, carrying my Windows 7 machine, and the office disappeared. However I still was able to login locally in my computer with my domain account, even there was no Domain Controller available to validate my user/password.
The problem came when I switched the type of my user account from "domain account" to "workgroup account", thinking it was more appropriate for my home. However I was disappointed: A new account was created, desktop erased, favourites erased, etc.
I see the old account files are still there, in the old folder
C:\Users\Oscar.FML. When changing to workgroup, it created a new
So I want to get back to my old domain account, but it asks for a domain controller in order to obtain permissions.
Rewinding to a previous Restore Point didn't solve the problem.
How can I get back to my old domain account? Preferably without building a whole PDC for this.
