The location of the User Profile for Network Service on Windows Server 2008 & 7

This kind of thing should be easy to find, but I couldn't hunt it down on google. So to save someone else some pain, here it is - the location of the %USERPROFILE% / home directory for the NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService user:

(drum roll...)

%systemroot%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService

which usually translates as:

c:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService

The user profiles for other "well known" service accounts (such as LocalService) are siblings of this directory.

I hope that saves someone some time...

  3. Thank you very much. I kept getting pages saying how there's a new structure in Win7/Win2008... but they wouldn't come out and say "Hey, btw... we moved the folders to the Windows Directory."

    Thanks again

  4. There are many sorts of noxious programming around the Internet today, for example, keyloggers, program robbers, spyware, adware, dialers, worms and numerous others. By running an against spyware program, you will have the capacity to identify and dispose of all the malignant records inside your PC framework. http://how-to-remove.org/malware/adware-removal/uninstallmalware-com-removal/

  6. Not all makers will offer a Windows 10 driver for a specific printer, either in light of the fact that they don't have one yet or in light of the fact that they've dropped support for it in this new form of Windows.
