Q: Help! Cant Sign Onto Windows

I ran highjackthis and found dexplore.dll and was attempting to remove it by running various programs such as Ewido. needless to say after rebooting it no longer lets me logon to my administrator name on Windows.

Hello Katiebabes and welcome to the BC HijckThis forum. Ido not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.Let's get the latest version of Ewido and run a scan with that. First, uninstall your current version of Ewido.Next, download ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.Once you have downloaded ewido anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.Once the setup is complete you will need run ewido and update the definition files.On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".Under "Reports"Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"Un-Select "Only if threats were found"Close ewido anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.Reboot your computer into SafeMode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit enter.
IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while ewido is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:Lauch ewido-anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
Once the scan is complete do the following:If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).Close ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode and post the results of the ewido report scan.Also, can you give me a little more detail about what happens when you try to log on with that account. Do you get an error message? If so, what is the exact message. If you log on with the default Administrator's account (or just another administrator account) and you look in the Documents and Settings folder is there a folder with the problem account's name? And if you go into Control Panel and check Users is the problem account listed as an account?Post back with the new Ewido log and and as much as you can tell me regarding the above questions and we will go from there.Cheers.OT

I went into my User Accouts in the Control Panel. I deleted a User called Nathon. I created a new user account with Admin authority named Jack.
However, everytime that I start my computer from my morning bootup, the Signon Window has the deleted User, Nathon.
I have to type in Jack, for the new user, and I get into Jacks Account.

Why is Windows not remembering that I have deleted the USER, Nathon?

I have never had such a problem with any of my other windows computers.

So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

You have recently removed one or more virusus from this computer, but now a new one has appeared.

First, AOL is extremely slow to start when I click on the icon. Once I've signed on, after a time a new sign-on screen appears on top of what I'm doing. I cancel that one. Soon I see activity at the bottom of the screen (where ordinarily you see "Done" or "//http:/..." etc. The virus is doing its own AOL activity! Soon afterward AOL is canceled, as if I had canceled it.

Also, Microsoft XP suddenly announces they are having to increase my virtual memory. Paging size is currently at 384 Mb, and my RAM is 1.25 GB. This is happening more and more frequently.

I have again changed my AOL sign-on password, and I no longer permit it to use the password automatically (I have to enter it at each sign on).

Thanks for any help you can provide.

After having done the update, I'm having two issues that are bugging me:

1. I cannot change the lock screen from the "cave by the shore" default nor bypass it (Brink is working on the bypass issue I believe)

2. If I go into netplwiz and uncheck the need for a password, the "Welcome" screen has the system default user picture, that drawing of a circle over an arch, not the picture I assigned to the account. With the need for a password, the picture on both the sign-in screen and "Welcome" screen is correct tho.

The lock screen issue I can live with since I normally don't use a password, but the default user picture is bugging me. I went into %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and replaced all the default pictures with ones the same name and size of the picture that I have for the account, but it still shows the default.

I've searched around for another place where the default picture is, but cannot find any, even with the search including hidden system files.

Anybody know where the system default user pictures are stored, other than in the User Account Pictures?

Hey everyone

Every now and then my Windows 8.1 x64 shows the first sign-in sequence after a restart. I noticed it most recently happened after a normal Start->Power Options->Restart. I'm quite sure it has also happened after right clicking on start button (Control-X) and restarting from there, as well as from a custom shortcut I have for restart (shutdown.exe /r /t 00).

I had just finished installing IBM SPSS 22 for a class I'm taking, but I think this is unrelated.
It goes through the whole "Setting Up Your PC" and "Installing your apps" screens even though its perfectly fine and and all my data including app data is still there. See the attached file for an example of what was most noticeably shown.

With another incident, something similar to this happened but it actually reset some of my settings for things like MediaMonkey, Connectify Hotspot, GOM Player and VLC player. It was like they had been started for the first time ever with no license information or preferences like Always on Top.

Its not a matter of urgency but I keep worrying that one day it will actually mess with my system in a very annoying way.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
Thanks

Windows 7 sp1 RTM: Logon, Desktop Sidebar & Windows Live Sign in Assitant Issues (unknown minnor issues-if you face the same issues, please post it here)

Hi Guys , please read the clarification before going to the issues part.

Clarification :
I faced a few issues after installing the Windows 7 sp1 RTM. I am very sure (100%) that these are the Windows 7 sp1 RTM fault (already gone through a few discussions and tested by myself on various ways).

There is no problem with IE9 RTM as these problems were also existing when I used IE8 (Original file came with my Windows 7 pack).

I am certain that my Windows Live Sign In Assitant has no problem at all (tested with latest Windows Live Essential 2011 pack-the one with minor update).

Everything works properly prior/before of the installation of Windows 7 sp1 RTM (of course by reverting back the Windows 7 sp1 RTM to Windows 7 will solve everything).

The point is I want the solution for Windows 7 sp1 RTM. Hope you can help. Kindly view my issues below.

OS Platform: Windows 7 sp1 RTM
Browser: Internet Explorer 9 RTM (Version 9.0.8112.16421)

Issues :
1) Error on Logon: After I log off my computer (pressed the log off button only) and re-logon back, parts of the Windows Live Sign In Assistant were disabled (with an error message box). ~view snapshot 1

This problem exists on both my laptops. Searches don't address my particular issue.

HP upgraded from Win7 and Toshiba upgraded from Win8.3 6-10 months ago to Win10.

I've tried to change from Fast Start which fixed only the failure on Toshiba to restart on command which was a good thing. Did nothing for HP.

I've changed the keyboard registry in both computers to the #2 which did nothing. (The HP was already set to 2)

I've gotten the latest patches and upgrades for Win10 on both laptops. Did nothing.

The numlock light comes on and stays on. The on screen icons show either locked or unlocked properly. Only the directional controls continue to work in either locked or unlocked mode.

I've found nothing anywhere that addresses this. Has to be a software issue as computers are different manufacturers and one is 3 years old and other is less than one year old.

It baffles me that it works on startup to put in my PIN and only fails when logged on to Windows 10.

Thanks,

Hi,

As of yesterday, when I sign in to Windows Live Messenger, a few seconds later Messenger will stop responding. This sometimes happens before the sign-in process is complete, and sometimes several seconds after. Shortly after this, Windows Explorer stops (the Task Bar, Start Menu and any window involving file browsing/ file tree such as "Open" dialogue boxes), then any other programs which are open also stop. It's not a screen freeze, since the mouse and basic keyboard commands still work to some extent - Alt-Tab brings up the switch program box, repeating left-shift for StickyKeys makes the StickyKeys sound, though Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing. I searched for a considerable period of time both on these forums and on others but with no luck. Has anyone seen something similar?

It may be completely unrelated, but today for about 10mins any attempt to access BleepingComputer would replace the "bleepingcomputer" section of the URL with "google" bringing up either Google's homepage or an internal Google error since rest of the URL belonging to a BleepingComputer site made no sense stuck after "google.com/". This seemed to fix itself after I tried to get to BleepingComputer via a proxy (though this may have been coincidence). I would post this separately but I'm not really interested in this oddity if it doesn't relate to my first problem.

Having the fingerprint Windows sign on is nice, but so far I see no other references to using this sensor to validate sign-on into websites, etc.    Is the fingerprint sensor here only good for one function, Windows sign-on?   If not, how do I set up the sensor to be used with other apps and web browsers?

Heres my situation. Im trying to help my dad out. He has a Dell laptop with Win 8.1, He recently started getting a window during startup that had a random file name and would say (Is not responding). We could not figure out what the problem was. So we decided to try a selective startup. Using MSCONFIG the option was selected to use Diagnostic Startup.


Since doing that we cant load windows. Well, Windows starts, but when it asks for his pin number to enter his desktop we enter it. Once we do that it simply comes up with a screen that shows his user picture large in the middle of the screen with his name (like he needs to select his user) and if you click on it then you are taking back to the screen to enter the pin. If the pin is entered it goes right back to that screen. I decided maybe we should try to start the computer in safe mode. We try to, but it asks for his actual password, which he cant remember. It asks for that same password if we try anything else in the Startup options.

I really need some help on this as soon as possible.

I really hope someone can help me with this. We've tried every combination of password we can think of that my dad might have used and cant seem to remember the right one. I really need to help get windows started again because my dad has work files he needs to access very soon.

Any helps is greatly appreciated.

I do believe that its not working cuz My clock battery was dead so it can not find the last good configuration. I now have a brand new clock battery installed. How do I get it to work?

Thanks so much,

Try this, if it is a local account you can unlock the account and blank the password, but you will have to make a new one.

Could somebody tell where I can buy the certificate to sign Win7 drivers in now-days?
I've found that it's impossible to install signed driver with sha1 certificate we bought. Even unsigned driver is better - it gives one more warning dialog to user, but installation is possible. We've tried to install updates for Win7, but failed.

My Carbon X1 20bt is experiencing major problems with fingerprint reader and Windows 10. Everything was working fine with Windows 8.1 and the Lenovo software. After upgrading to 10, the Lenovo software was automatically deleted I guess because Windows 10 fully supports sign in with fingerprint. When I read my print in to Windows HELLo, it NEVER recognizes it when signing in. I have read it in to the system multiple times, but have never succeeded to log in with it. This problem has been existing for some time, but yesterday I was doing maintenance to my friends x240 and noticed her reader work without enabling Windows Hello. She didn?t have the pin installed for Hello and the reader worked just fine. On my X1, I have to put in the pin number to Hello or the whole reader is disabled. There was fingerprint reader driver update coming to x240 which I didn?t instal naturally. I tried to instal the 8.1 drivers back, but was unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated, this is anoying!

I am thinking about updating my Windows 8 system on a Dell XPS 8700 to Windows 8.1. I've read a number of "how to's" on the Internet, and all is pretty understandable. I have one question, though: toward the end of the install the instructions mention a "sign-on to Windows" procedure using either a Windows account or a local account sign on. Currently, I don't have a password associated with this machine, and am wondering if this sign on part of the update will force me to use a Microsoft account sign on, or let me bypass this step (how?) as I currently don't use a password to sign on to Windows. Thanks for the help.

Hello,

I am having trouble when going to the c:\documents and settings\User folder it keeps coming up asking for me to sign into Windows Live ID. Just wondering if anyone has seen this before?

I cannot find any fixes for this problem.

Thanks

A:Sign in with Windows live ID

Forget it I found the solution

Following recent updates to Windows XP, some users experience popups
asking them to enter their Windows Live ID whenever they browse to
their Documents and Settings/username/ folder, whether or not they have
such an ID or use those services. This can be prevented by deleting the
item "My web sites on MSN" from the NetHood subfolder in this folder,
which apparently causes this by trying to access the network.

This worked for me !

I've been having this problem for a few weeks now. After a mandatory update from Microsoft, I've downloaded, installed and tried to use Windows Live Messenger 9.0. But it won't let me sign in. I type my username and the correct password, the icon spins, then - nothing. No error messages, just nothing, the same screen.

I've tried un-installing it, re-installing it at least 5 times. I've tried re-installing and using my old version (Windows Live Messenger 8.1), but it won't let me use that, because it forces me to update to 9.0.

I've already checked a thousand times and it's NOT a problem with a firewall or internet connections or anything of that sort. I've already searched the internet for hours for a solution, but couldn't find anything. I'm using XP and Service Pack 2.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, Here are a couple of things to check. 1.  One possibility is that the keyboard layout has been changed, so try logging on using the on screen keyboard as follows. At the log on screen, click the Ease Of Access icon in the bottom right corner, select On-Screen Keyboard and enter your password using this. 2.  See if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.  https://account.live.com/password/reset Regards, DP-K

Hi Guys

I was trying to register with Windows Messenger (Windows Live ID). One of the entries is my e-mail address. I entered it properly, but when I finished with the page, it returned with this message:
"The portion of your e-mail address that follows the @ symbol is part of a "reserved domain" such as live.com, hotmail.com, msn.com or passport.com. Please type a different e-mail address"

I know I entered my address correctly (tried it several times). Any thoughts?
