Preferred Solution: boot password on startup, don't recall setting password

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have a client who JUST about got nailed by the little b******s that push a fake virus page to you then give you a number to call etc etc. 
They called me JUST as they were ALSO on the phone with the scammer, and I got them to hang up before any serious damage could be done...especially to their VISA card!
However, the little buggers managed to put a start up password in Windows BEFORE you get to the users/login screen. This is where the fortunate part comes in. The client was WATCHING AND PAYING ATTENTION! (I know! How rare is that???)
The password used was 'inbound'.
So to use the computer, all you have to do is put in the password 'inbound' and you get to the login screen. 
The faker created a homegroup and a hidden homegroup admin account for himself. I got rid of the homegroup and that user, but try as I might, I can't find out where you go to get rid of that password requirement. 
Any ideas?

A:Getting rid of Win7 Startup Password requirement when you know the password!

Is the password box the same as what is shown on this page.That would be a System password that can be removed by copying the System   (Sam) Hive from the Regback folder of C:\Windows\System32\config\Regback. 
 
First option is to do a System Restore . Edit: It should be SAM hive. Sorry.
 
Second would be to use a live linux disk to rename the System Hive in C:\Windows\System32\config\ and copy the one from Regback. This would only work if the date on the System Hive in Regback is before the problem began.
 
Edit: There is a file on the page but I have never downloaded it or used it. I suggest you at least scan it with Virustotal if you wish to use it to disable the password box.

Hi, I work at a pawn shop, and we have a problem we have never encountered before.  This laptop, which is cleared and is now for sale in the shop, now asks for an administrator password or power on password.  It did not do this when it was brought in, nor when it was pulled from the back.  We were going to power it on for a customer, and it just started asking us for this password. I have seen in another post that you enter through it 3 times to get a code, so here is the code:61987774 Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I have my Windows 8.1 PC's password policy set so that a password is not required when waking from sleep/shutdown. I used to be able to wake the PC from sleep and not put in a password, and I could turn the PC on after a shutdown without having to put in a password either. Since last week, though, when I turn my PC on, it will boot to the Windows loading screen and after loading for a bit, it will jump into the login screen and immediately report a login error that the username or password is incorrect. This happens before I even get a chance to type a username or password. The fact that I have to type in the username and password is strange because I have the PC set to bypass that option.

Can anyone tell me what's happening with this login error issue and how to fix it?

Thanks

A:Password not required: "Password Incorrect" on startup

Hello MechaKong, and welcome to Eight Forums.

This usually happens when your password had not been entered correctly in netplwiz, or you had changed your password and didn't update it in netplwiz.

You could go through netplwiz again to enter your password again to sort it.

I looked around and found most people have the opposite problem from me, but I didn't find a solution for my problem.

I have a desktop PC and a laptop connected via network cables to a hub.
I want to make all my files available on my desktop PC so I can access them from the laptop via the LAN, but there are other computers also connected to the HUB/LAN whom I don't want to give access to my files.

Thus I need to put a username/password on my desktop PC, so that when someone or I try to access it via the LAN, it must ask for a username and password before giving access to the files on the PC.

My desktop PC has Win XP Pro and the laptop has Win XP Home

How can I setup the password on my PC?

I have unselected "Simple file sharing" in Windows Exploprer.
But I struggle to setup the password when I try to share a folder with a password.

All help will be much apprecated.
Thanks
 

A:Setting up password on pc on LAN

For the file/folder/drive to be shared give permission to a user account on the desktop. For any other computer to access it the other computer must be using an identical user account/password or at the time of access the account's password must be given. Since I don't use Advanced File Sharing I am not 100% positive this is how you do it.

A:setting password

Hi bob,

Maybe they've used a password and then set it up to do an auto login using that password (so it was transparent for you but they could use it for administrative purposes like fixing something). Try to log out from your user and at the login screen, just press enter. If no password is needed, then leave that password field empty when adding a password from the Control Panel. If it requires a password and you can't get in touch with them... back up your files and format your computer... it's the easiest way to "recover" that password. There are some programs out there to help you crack/find that password but most of them will put spyware or malware in your PC so you'll end up formatting anyway.

Cheers,

Hello.
A neighbour of min recently told me that my wireless connection wasn't protected so it was likely that other people could access it.
So I've been trying to set a password for it.

Almost all "tutorials" appear to be using a 192.168.1.1 Gateway or whatever you call it while I have a 192.168.1.2.
I'm currenty using a SMC Networks Router, model SMCWBR14-G2.

So... When I type the 192.168.1.2 into my browser I get a page from SMC that asks just for my password, no username. (Ill post a screenshot soon)
The problem is that I have no idea what the password is. I'm not sure if I ever set one, and if I did it doesn't seem to be one I'm familiar with.

Is there any default password for this model or any way to change it?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Setting up a Password.

There is a default password for all Routers for the most part. It is listed in your router manual. If you did set a different password and forgot it, you can set the router back to the factory defaults so that you can input the default password and reconfigure the router. Once in there you will want to setup the Wireless Encryption. I suggest using WPA or WPA2 if all your computers support it.

The Windows logon screen started showing up this morning. I've never used a logon ID or password. I tried clicking past this without entering anything but nothing happens. I get the same screen when starting in safe mode.

As this is my laptop I should start using the logon. However how do I go about setting the ID and password if I've never used it before? I definitely need to get past the logon prompt so I can use the computer. I'd prefer not to reinstall XP again as I did last month.

This is Windows XP home edition and SP3 is installed. All Microsoft updates have been applied. In fact I suspect the .net 1, .net 2, and .net 3 updates I applied last night caused this problem.
 

A:How do I go about setting the Windows ID and password if I've never used it before?

a word of advice. if you dont use or need the net program or updates go to your add/remove programs and uninstall them.as far as the id where it says password well we cant help with passwords as we dont know if thats really your computer or not. all ill say is that i had that happen on a laptop because i stupidly messed with my network settings and goofed it up. i ended up reinstalling windows. it solved my problem. lol! if u do use net framework the only update u need is 3.the rest can be removed. hope this helps u.

Recently, when trying to enter BIOS (an Asus motherboard), I was asked for a password. I have never set a password. Thus, the fact that I was asked for a password is unusual. I shutdown the computer, removed the CMOS battery, waited for a while, then started up the computer and hit "DEL" to enter the BIOS. This time, I was NOT asked for a password. I then boot into Windows 7 and restarted the computer. When trying to enter BIOS during this startup, I WAS asked for a password again.

Summary:

1. remove power cord, remove CMOS battery, put everything back, start the computer - no password request
2. afterwards, boot into Windows 7, restart the computer - BIOS asks for a password.

It seems to me a trojan on the harddisk is setting a BIOS password. Is this a valid interpretation of the above behavior?

I have scanned the harddisk with tdsskiller, rkill, aswmbr, AVG. They found nothing. I have used aswmbr to rewrite the MBR, run "bootrec "/fixboot" or "/fixmbr". The password request persists.

For now, I leave the computer alone. But I am thinking perhaps I should try a low level reformat of the harddisk to see if it can stop the password setting behavior. If I do that, I'll have to reinstall and update the Windows. It'll take many hours. I don't want to do it if I don't have to.

A:Who (or what) is setting BIOS password?

Well im not to sure on how to get rid off it.

I went to sleep, and now today, I decided I would set it again. However, when it gets to setup, on the part where it checks the router and computer settings, but then asks for a password.

So, I tried the one i set yesterday, I tried admin, and I tried leaving it blank, but it just keeps 'checking' my computer settings.

Does anyone have any idea on how to set a password at microsoft excel. Suppose a document contains information that can be viewed by anyone, but should be modified only by a limited number of users. In this case, the author requires a password to modify. A user who does not know the password can view the document and make changes, but cannot save these changes to the document. However, you can get around this type of protection by using the "Save As" command and saving the document under another name. The password to modify will be reset in the newly-saved document.

Appreciate if anyone have an idea on how to set that as my boss ask me to set a password for some of the document in my office.

Some how someone set a password on the Bios setting to a computer at the office. When I try to boot up now it will prompt me for the password. Apparently, the person who use the computer did not set the password and don't know who did.

How do I disable the Password. I've try flashing the Bios, but did not work. I need to disable the password first according to American megatrend,inc before I could attempt to flash the Bios. I've even try pulling out the CMOS battery, and reboot. still I get the same results. Do I have to leave the Cmos battery off and let it drain first and then try again to reset itself?

Any other solutions out there, please?

Thanks in advance,

A:Need to disable BIOS password setting

You may need to leave the battery out for a little longer, also, there may be a jumper near the battery that when set correctly then returned to normal will also clear BIOS settings. We would need more information on the motherboard to be sure though.

Hey,

Currently, I don't have a password set for my user account (I don't want to have to enter it on each start-up and I don't really have a problem with people using my computer).

Occasionally I'll be working on something and when I leave my computer I don't want to risk anyone accidently messing it up. It would be pretty handy if I could lock my user account with a password, then just unlock it and pick up from where I left off. From my understanding, the only way I can do this is if I create a password for my entire account.

Is there any way I can set a password for just the lock screen?

A:Setting password for just my lock screen?

Hello Clinton, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The only way would be to set a password for your user account.

A workaround would be to create a password for your account, and set Windows to log on to your user account automatically at startup. This way you will not have to enter your password at startup, but you will if you lock the computer.

Hope this helps,

- pwd unique = 12 (a year)

I have several external USB hard drives that I have built and would like to password protect them.

Is there a program available that is especially good. All the ads found in a Google search indicate that their software is the best and I really have no idea. I have never tried doing this before.

Thanks

I just upgraded to windows 2000 yesterday from 98 se, and i was just playing around with it. SO, i went to the control panel and was changing the setting for security. I turned on the mode where you have to press "ctl+alt+del" to log in. I know the password that i typed in but at that time, it didn't say what user name i should use with that password (i think it's to do with guest logging in). Basically, i can't log in right now with the user name that window prompt me and the password that i set. Any help????? Pllzzz.....
