Hi Experts,

deleted my domain server dcpremo.after removing my domain ,
my windows return to default state(it dont return to my last workgroup state)
i had so much programs that registered with my administrator accoutn
on my last workgroup that didnt work in my current workgroup.
at now many of my programs doesn t work.
my two workgroups (last and current ) have a same name(weareonl) and
i used same same account for loginning to computer(Administrator).

How can i Return to my last account in my last workgroup?

PS:
1:
I see" my ducuments and settings" folder in Drive C
i saw two account
1:administrator
2:administrator.weareonl

2: i opened my command prompt In my current workgroup i saw
C:\documents and settings\administrator.weareonl>

When you are logged in, go to a command prompt and type 'set' press enter
read the line that says userprofile=
this is the location where your current user profile is
I am assuming that you are logging in locally, since your domain server is gone. If that is the case, and when you log in, userprofile=administrator.weareonl, then follow these instructions:

create a local account called 'test' and give it admin rights
log in as 'test' and perform the following operations
go to the c:\documents and settings directory
rename administrator.weareonl account to temp.administrator.weareonl
rename administrator account to saved.administrator
rename temp.administrator.weareonl account to administrator
log out and back in as administrator
delete your 'test' account

this should effectively switch your profiles, so that when you log in with the administrator account, it is associated with the correct profile.

Now that I'm looking over my post, I realized I added an extra step. You could just

rename administrator account to saved.administrator
rename administrator.weareonl account to administrator

instead of
rename administrator.weareonl account to temp.administrator.weareonl
rename administrator account to saved.administrator
rename temp.administrator.weareonl account to administrator

If you are using xp then this should also work and this will also copy over correct permissions
