My computer does not allow me to logon interactively

Asked By 400 points N/A Posted on -



I am experiencing this problem on my office computer:

"The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively."

It is quite weird to have this issue, when just last week, I was able to get on it with no problem.

I was able to report it to our IT people, but as soon as possible. I would want to know, if there is anything I can do to fix this issue. I hate to say this, but our IT guys does so many things and I know resolving this will take time.

If the Local Security Policy is set to disallow local log on to Everyone, then the error message will pop up for any user who tries to log on, including an administrator. This can be fixed in a couple of ways:

  1. You can use the resource kit tool, Ntrights.exe, to change the local log on rights. For example, you could run this command: ntrights -m \ProblemComputer -u Administrator +r SeInteractiveLogonRight.
  2. You can open a command prompt from another computer on the same network, issue the command Net use x: \ProblemComputerC$ <Password> /u:Administrator, and then change to the directory %SystemRoot%SecurityDatabase. Rename Secedit.sdb to Secedit.old_sdb and copy a working version of a Secedit.sdb file from another computer running the same operating system (for example, Windows 2000 Professional).
