    Net user returns "... completed with one or more errors."


    I read about the net user command, and wanted to try it. When I entered it in an elevated command prompt, it returned the following. I take it the part about "The command completed with one or more errors." is not normal.

    How can I go about fixing this?

    Thanks

    That indicates that one of the user profiles is somewhat damaged. A typical output of simple net user command just lists the present user profiles:

    Personally I've never got an error when only listing users. What about your personal user profile, does that underscore at the end of your username belong to your username?

    Thanks for you reply.

    That makes sense, I assumed that it must indicate a corrupt user profile...

    Yes, when I originally installed Windows 10, I used my email address, which does have an underscore after my first name. In the meantime, I switched to a local account, but I kept the username mike_.

    I have also enabled the default Administrator account. It shows up as available at logon.

    And I haven't noticed any other issues. Everything seems to work, but apparently there is some corruption of one or more user profiles.

    What next steps can I take to try to correct it?

    If everything works, there is no need to "fix" anything.

    You could try one thing: disable the built-in admin account and run net user in an elevated Command Prompt again, to see if the error remains.

    I will try disabling the Admin account.

    I agree: why try to "fix" something that isn't broken? At the same time, why does it return "completed with one or more errors"? That is the kind of thing that will bother me, feeling like there is a "skeleton in the closet" somewhere that I just haven't fully discovered yet...

    Thanks for the info.

    Unfortunately, disabling the Admin account did not resolve the issue. Strange.

    Let me know if you have any further thoughts. Thanks again.

    No, as a matter of fact I did not delete my computer name. That probably is at least one of my problems.

    Any idea how I can correct that? Thanks!

    The error message said 'one or more problems'. You may have only the one.

    Try renaming it.

    Right, I was getting lazy. Probably should have stated, "that is my problem, or at least one of my problem(s)"... Logic

    When I attempt to rename, I receive the message, "The PC name is invalid." no matter what name I choose. And if I enter the current name, it tells me I need to choose a different name.

    It certainly appears there is a problem with my PC's name. Any idea how I might remedy that?
