    Hi there

    That's possibly because you have DIFFERENT names set up for your user ID's on both systems -- but if you have say DOG on your local account and then switch to Ms account DOG@email.address.planetearth for example try and switch back to local user DOG again.

    Cheers

    Not saying my way is the best way but I always first create my account as Local naming it Kari, then when first time on desktop I directly connect it to an MS Account. This way my username = my MS Account email but my user profile name and its folder are named Kari. Any later change back to local account by removing the email from the user profile will give me the original username Kari. Here, a screenshot showing me logged in to my Windows 10 MS Account using my hobby email and the user profile folder belonging to it, notice that the user shown in Start Menu as Windows shows the MS Account user has a different name than its profile folder:

    Doing this I get the user profile and its folder named as I prefer. If I set up the user directly using an MS Account, the profile and folder can get funny unwanted names, in case of this email I have when tested got accounts KariF, KariFi, KariF-ComputerName and so on. By setting up the user initially as local, then converting it to an MS Account I get the profile and folder named as I want to.

    I have six user accounts on this computer, all MS Accounts, every profile named as I want to instead of as Windows likes to do. A screenshot from my main profile folder Users:

    The "old", original local account username can also be used even after converting the user account to an MS Account. I can for example log in to shares on this computer with username COMPUTERNAME\Kari, in addition to my MS Account email credentials. The same with Remote Desktop, connecting to this computer I don't have to use the MS Account credentials but can also sign in using the username COMPUTERNAME\Kari.

    Here's how it works, an example scenario:

    You create a local account named SuperGeek on a Windows PC named MyMonsterRig, with password WhoNeedsPassword. You later connect this local account to an MS Account named TheNerd@live.com which has a password ItIsStupidNotToUsePassword.

    The account is now an MS Account, and as such you can naturally only use the password of the connected MS Account email, but you can still use the old local account username. The user profile SuperGeek still exists but its password was dead at the moment of connecting the profile to an MS Account and was replaced with the MS Account password.

    You can now sign in to shares or remote desktop or whatnot with any of these three combinations:
    • Username: TheNerd@live.com & MS account password ItIsStupidNotToUsePassword
    • Username: MyMonsterRig\SuperGeek & MS account password ItIsStupidNotToUsePassword
    • Username: Windows\SuperGeek & MS account password ItIsStupidNotToUsePassword


    All sign in attempts using any of the accepted sign in usernames will fail using the original password of the local account.

    Can't rep you right now @Kari but I just want to say that is a very enlightening explanation about account problems.

    I have experienced similar issues with local versus Microsoft accounts and passwords. There are instances where Windows refuses to recognize Microsoft accounts as a valid user. One example is the Task Scheduler. I also setup a local account first and then switch to a Microsoft account, however I give both accounts the same password. To me this seems to eliminate some of the issues.

    Thanks Badrobot .

    BTW, an extra tip: Maybe you noticed that the name of one of my Windows accounts on this PC has special characters in the profile name, in this case parenthesis. Windows username accepts some of the special characters but in case of Windows 10, not for the initial first user you create when installing Windows.

    If you want to use accepted special characters in a local user profile name you have to create that user later in PC Settings > Accounts. Even then the following characters are not accepted:
    Code:
     / \ [ ] " : ; | < > + = ? * & @ ,
    Other than the above mentioned characters you can use whatever characters you'd like to for user profile names (local accounts). The profiles and their folders will keep these "customized" names even after converting the user account to an MS Account. Here's an example, a local user account I just created for the sake of these screenshots:

    Ok Geekers, Tweakers and System Doctors,
    System Health Report seems to be working on 10041. I say seems because as you see in the screenshot, it looks for a version # with 6.XXX. To try it yourself go to an admin. command prompt and give

    Works for me - it didn't work on earlier builds and doesn't work on 8.1.

    I got about 100 messages saying this (which I plan to ignore as I don't watch TV anyway)
    Code:
    Symptom: [IMG]res://wdc.dll/error.gif[/IMG] tv_ConfigMgrErr45
    Cause: A device has a configuration problem that prevents it from working properly.
    Details: The device, Generic volume, is reporting "tv_ConfigMgrErr45". This device will not be available until the issue is resolved. The Plug and Play ID for this device is STORAGE\VOLUME\{37F6AB90-CE47-11E4-B631-542696D02A00}#0000003C14900000.
    Resolution: 1. Verify the correct driver is installed.
    2. Try updating the drivers using Windows Update.
    3. Check with the manufacturer for an updated driver.
    4. Attempt to uninstall and then reinstall the device using Device Manager.

    It also works on 8.1 for me. Also I received the same errors on 10 as you about a dozen tv_ConfigMgrErr45.

    I can't run it in 8.1 either. It does run fine in W10, with the same tv errors

    I think it's a liar!

    I have never used my computer for watching TV and mine isn't a Smart TV anyhoo. A whole bucketload of TV error 45 just does not make sense to me.

    Also, in one place, it says everything's inferior and in another place they all pass.

    Suffice to say that I don't understand any of this and don't think I want to.
