This is the error message it gives me: "One or more errors occurred while recording group membership changes for user Bob." I press OK to exit the error message and immediately, I get this one: "The following error occurred while attempting to save properties for user Bob: The specified account is not a member of the group." 3.
I tried removing Bob using the net user command from the command prompt. The specified account name is not a member of this group." Now, Bob is a member of both Administrators and Users group.
I tried removing him from the Users group using step 2 above. So it seems like if I try to add/delete someone from the Administrators group, or make changes to an Administrative account, I can't. I know I haven't made any critical changes to the computer that would affect any system files to cause these errors, so I don't understand.

Local Users and Groups) and I found a test account "Bob" that I created many months ago with administrative privileges. It's like they were in the group, but just invisible.

Then I tried removing Bob from the administrators group by right-clicking on Bob's account, then selecting Properties.
This particularly becomes important when you are first renaming the computer, and then trying to join a domain, as the kerberos handshake can not be completed without the network stack responding to the correct computer name.You can rename a computer by right-clicking on the My Computer icon on the desktop, choosing Properties and then clicking on Computer Name tab.Click the Change button and type in a new name for the computer.However, what happens when you have two computers with the same name on a network?If you’re running newer versions of Windows like Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7, then everything will work fine.
