C$ share local access

By hegemon ·
I administer an NT4 domain with 60 PCs, two BDCs and a Unix server. A workmate imaged a workstation system to a larger hard disk using Power Quest Drive Image. The trouble is that after the user logs on the OS asks for username and password for the administrative share C$. It also asks for username and password when one of his desktop shortcuts is run, namely Act 2000. There is no problem when logging on as Administrator. It seems to be a permissions problem. Or is it something to do with the user profile. Is there a fix for it to avoid reloading the OS and apps?

You could try adding a new share and give the user full access on the new share, since it will not let you modify the existing administrative share...

Start svrmgr and remove the problem PC from the domain and then add it again (make sure that the PC is not in use at the time).

I've seen this problem before with imaged drives. I just thought it was our crappy software dept. that did a loser job on the image! Maybe not. the only was i was able to fix this was to search the the drive for any shortcuts that listed the hidden share as part of the path. i.e: \\computer\C$\programe files\IE5\explorer. The search was every shortcut, and the whole registry. I think it had something to do with the default profile so every new profile would create shortcuts that had the same error in the shortcut path.
Good luck

You cannot adjust the share permissions to the C$ share. However, go to the root drive's security permissions and make sure that the Administrator and System accounts have Full Control, and the Everyone Group has Change permissions.
