Constant password requests

Q: Constant password requests

I am being frustrated with constant requests for a password. I have just started using this system and during updates the screen would go blank and I had to use CTRL+ALT+DEL to return to the desktop.

On return to the desktop the user name is displayed with the remark LOCKED and the need to enter the password.

When loading music CDs again and again the system displayed the request for a password. This happened at least once during the download sequence and at times twice for a CD with a large number of tracks.

What do I need to do to stop all this nonsense?

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 Scunnered

Im Not sure if im reading this wrong but what it sounds like to me is you have your screen saver set to password on resume
if this is the case then all you simply need to do is right click your desktop, personalisation, screen-saver
ether change the length of idle time to a longer one or uncheck on resume, display login screen

sorry if i am misunderstanding your problem

I've got an aging XP machine that I'm trying to clean out, and I've run across an amazingly persistent virus of some sort. Trend Micro is blocking upwards of thousands of URL requests and redirects on a daily basis, yet I haven't been able to locate any real malware during several system scans with different antivirus software, including TrendMicro, MWB, MSE, and Hitman. I've run a CCleaner sweep just to clear out the obvious junk, but the the problem persists, and nothing is still registering on my scans.

Now,I've walked through the preliminary steps before posting here, thank you very much for providing those,they were very helpful. It looks like they have uncovered a rootkit of some kind, but I'm at a loss at this point as how to actually do anything about it.

Here are my DDS logs, and I have attached the attach.txt file as well. Thanks to everyone in advance for their help!

I've reached my wits' end. Our home network is bogged down with constant chatter between something called Sony Science Labs (with its own MAC address and everything). It appears that this device is constantly requesting DHCP addresses by sending requests to ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff. But it also regulary reports to 192.168.0.255 -- an IP address that doesn't appear to exist on our network.

I'm posting the Hijack This! log below in the hope that it contains a clue about what's going on. This log file is for my computer -- I believe we've isolated the problem to this machine. It's a Sony VAIO notebook. Yes, I've installed all the relevant Windows and other patches. At least I'm pretty sure I have.

Thanks in advance for any advice. I'd rather not re-format the hard drive but I'm approaching that solution. - Tony Lima

Hello,
I started noticing odd behavior from my computer after installing a couple of new programs (Camstudio from downloads.cnet.com, and another one that I may have gotten from elsewhere--I can't remember). It would redirect me to ezpapersolutions.com when clicking on Google links; then if I went back and clicked again, the link would work correctly. I also started having popups. Further, I had Process Explorer set as my task manager, and now it keeps resetting itself to the default Task Manager for Windows 2000. Also, my firewall started receiving these two kinds of requests every few seconds or minutes: for one it said "Someone on address 10.12.15.1 wants to send ICMP packet to your machine" (the firewall reported the 'owner' as "Tcpip Kernel Driver"), and for the other it said "'Run a DLL as an App' from your computer wants to connect to 95.211.128.4, port 80". I have attached the log from the firewall to this post.

I searched my computer and registry for ezpapersolutions.com, and somewhere I found the string "GLARM" (without quotes). In the registry at

I have a Win 7 laptop and xp desktop on my network. When I try to access the xp desktop from the win 7 laptop, I sometimes get a dialog box requesting username/password. Other times I get a message box that I do not have permission to access the desktop. Other times still, everything works fine.

The xp can access the laptop no problem. The laptop can always see the desktop in the network, the problem is accessing it to share files or use a printer attached to the desktop.

I have no passwords on either computer. I have disabled passwords in the advanced network settings for home & work. Registry has LmCompatibilityLevel set to 3 on the laptop.

This is a common problem with win 7 networking with xp (but it usually is a consistent problem). I have not found a solution that has worked for me, despite trying many suggestions offered in this forum. Since the problem seems to occur randomly, it is very difficult to troubleshoot.

I would appreciate any ideas to rectify this.

If you don't want problems with sharing between these two OP systems follow the guide in the link below. If you set up a Homegroup on the Windows 7 machine you will first want to leave the Homegroup before making these adjustments.

In general setting up a standard workgroup then setting the permissions and running the XP network set up wizard and turning off simple file sharing on the XP machine should work for this but if problems arise then setting up as per the link below will work.

I reported this problem on here already and last time solved it by re-installing Windows from a back-up.

The problem has returned. But this time I have discovered something interesting. I believe it should be possible to troubleshoot the problem.

I have found that the problem comes about after using the online feedback form that comes with Windows 10. The feedback form requires that the user log in before posting. However it does not appear to give the user the option to log out again. For some unknown reason, whenever I have used the feedback app then shut down the computer and rebooted, Windows boots to the calendar screen. When I click on that screen it changes to the dark blue password login screen and asks me for my password. I have never had a password!

I was so thrown by this last time it happened that I did not consider that it was asking me for my online Microsoft password. But this is exactly what it wants. This time I typed in my online Microsoft password and hey presto it continued to boot to Windows. The problem is I am now stuck in an infinite loop of having to click on a calendar screen and enter the password every time I boot up.

It seems that Windows 10 is somehow confusing my online password with an offline password and is expecting the online password to be entered offline in order to log in.

Can anyone suggest a way to log out of Microsoft feedback app permanently?

I tried going online and logging in and out of the Microsoft webpage, but this did not... Read more

This is a post per the nstructions of orange blossom. This system is running Win XP Pro, sp3 with a 1 TB external backup (Western Digital) which constantly updates the back up files. Redirects have become common and recently some graphics interference as in web pages slowly scroll down filling bottom to top visibly. An update check on the graphics driver and software has not produce improvement. The redirects occur mainly on IE however, have been observed on FF as well. Also recently, before auto update of email on Outlook, a password request box opens and the email will n ot update without response. I suspect usage of the system by maintenance personnel as the system has on occassion been found in condition other than how it wsa left the evening before.

So, about two or three months ago my laptop's motherboard died. It was an old asus machine, and was years out of warranty, so I decided to simply recycle it and buy another desktop... I've always liked them better anyways. I bought a Dell Inspiron from Office Depot, seemed like a pretty nice deal on the machine that I got. In any case, it ran smooth, and the built in graphics on its i5 processor allowed me to play quite a few of my games until I could invest in a dedicated GPU. A month ago, I bought a new Thermaltake power supply to facilitate eventually getting said GPU, and a week or two later, grabbed an Nvidia GTX 750ti for a nice price, threw it in, and drooled over how nicely it played my games. Two monitors, Skyrim at max settings on one screen, Netflix streaming House on the other.
 
For a couple weeks everything was groovy. I was able to play my games typically at least at 60 FPS smooth, I was able to multitask, I was even able to record plenty of my games at 60 FPS with fraps, NO PROBLEM, I was thrilled with how quickly windows 8.1 started up every time...

You can safely run Adobe flash player. That warning is just to let you know that this add-on was already there and asks you to confirm that you want to run it.
Its up to you if you want to decide for every site apart with flash-content if you want to run it or if you want to enable it for all sites. Its no security risk to allow it for all sites.

It's time for me to replace my old HP 200LX, and I can't seem to find a PDA that is suitable. Here are my search criteria:

I am 50 & my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.
I need a decent sized display (Palm Pilot types are
too tiny).

Besides the usual PDA (calendar, contacts, etc.), I want
to be able to run some Excel spreadsheets. My spread-
sheets can be robust, so I prefer a landscape display,
not the portrait shape of Palm Pilot type PDAs). Bonus
points for syncing up with my Quicken on my PC.

Connecting & syncing with my Windows PC is a good
idea. This device should augment my PC, not replace it.
(I do use MS Outlook).

My handwriting is horrible -- I need a keyboard, but
the keyboard can be small -- I don't mind hunting &
pecking on the PDA. I also don't mind navigating with
arrow keys.

Ideally, I'd like something about the size of a paperback book. I don't want a full sized laptop -- laptops are a bit big & too expensive. Finally, it would be nice if the device had modern conveniences, like ability to play MP3 files, surf the net, play some basic games, etc. I also wouldn't exclude from consideration any PDA / cell phone combination (although I don't have/use a cell phone yet).

Thanks in advance.run some Excel spreadsheets

If this is not possible can you tell me how to view this information on all of the nt boxes from one nt box.

Thanks,

Hello and Welcome to TSF

You should have been patient and let the security team in the Hijackthis forum help you remove your infection, improper removal has caused your issue.

Use System Restore to a previous date to see if you can at least access windows in normal mode, then Look over the First Steps at Removing Malware and post the logs requested in the thread you started over in the Hijackthis forum.

I'm a programmer, and installed wireshark on my xp machine to do some tcp/ip work. I noticed, even with no programs running I get a constant stream of dns requests to my routers ip.

the requests look like this:
46189 3959.607565 192.168.2.2 192.168.2.1 DNS Standard query PTR 4.160.15.219.in-addr.arpa

and the responses look like this:
46212 3985.801191 192.168.2.1 192.168.2.2 DNS Standard query response PTR WL.hsd1.fl.comcast.net

From what I can gather, the requests all look like home isps. There also seems to be a lot of foreign countries like .br and .jp a lot. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

I set up family safety for my 12 year old daughter, and ticked all the apps she can use freely. Every time she logs on the computer it pops up little messages telling her to request permission to use all the apps that I didn't give her access to. It's very annoying, so how do I stop it, other than the obvious but unhelpful step of letting her access everything?

A:Permission requests

Hello Andy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The apps that are checked are the ones that are blocked instead. Only the unchecked ones are allowed.
Family Safety App Restrictions - Set and Manage in Windows 8
When you get a request to allow an app and either allow or block it as per the tutorial below, you and the user should not see the messages for that app anymore.

Is there a place that we can leave feedback or requests for the ATA product?

There are a few things i would like to see changed.  

1.  Alerting
We get alerts during backup windows that the ATA cant keep up but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with CPU or RAM.  In addition, we have no users in the system at that time so i find it very hard to believe
that this is true.  I would like to set time windows where we can exclude these alerts or maybe thresholds where if it is seeing that for 5 minutes, 10 minutes etc.
2.  Email Audience
I would like to be able to say these types of emails go to this distribution list and those go to another so that we keep the number of alerts the team gets down a bit.  
3.  Suspicious Activity
When we get an alert warning of suspicious activity and click the link to take a look, the first thing you have to do is answer whether it is normal or not, but we cant click the link to see the suspicious activity unless
we open the excel file in the email.  This should be adjusted.

I suspect some kind of phishing bug but I am not sure what might cause this issue.
In the 17 years since I started using a computer I have gotten only a few requests to log into the server when I opened my email client. It has been more than a decade since I saw one.
In mid October this happened randomly and I ignored it. Instead I opened my properties folder and checked each tab and closed it. Then I was able to get my email.
After that I think the next day maybe a couple of days later it came back only this time it wouldn't let me get my email when I checked the properties. I ran an MSE scan and it seemed to fix the problem.
Then a week later the same thing happened. This time checking properties and doing an MSE scan had no effect. I was able to send a test email but I did not receive it. I ran an ESET online scan. This seemed to "fix" whatever was causing the log in request. Since about 28 Oct until today there was nothing then this morning it has come up again with a twist; When I check the properties folder my user name and password lines were blank!
I am running an MSE scan and ESET is on deck to run right after. I feel like I am getting a bug from somewhere that is raising a false need to log in so that my password can be gotten. IDK ?????

I certainly appreciate your position. Indeed you are correct that I originally posted a request for assistance on another forum. After getting a reply from another user on that forum and nothing from the moderators for 2 days I decided to post on your site/forum...thinking that the user reply had suggested to the moderators on the other site that I was already receiving assistance.I have since received a request for my HJT log and info files from the other site so I will rely on them for assistance, My apologies for any confusion this may have caused. It was not my intent. More it was my misunderstanding of how these forums work.Thank you again and again, my apologies for duplicate postings. It was not my intent to over-tax either forum.

Please read this carefully before posting.
The idea:
This thread is meant to collect user's request of new features to add to Windows 7, or to bring back features that were taken out since XP / Vista, and are sorely missed.
The idea is to create a list that MS might want to take a look at.
For this to have a chance, we need to keep the thread clean, and free of unnecessary comments and discussions.
So we need a set of rules.
The rules:


   Information

1. No rants, no debates or discussions, no personal comments, no reactions to other posters, no MS bashing, period!

2. Maximum of 10 lines. So make sure your post is clear and to the point.
One or two words more won't matter, but don't push your luck.

3. Posting of screenshots is allowed to clarify your point.

4. No utopian requests, keep it reasonable.

5. Double posts and posts with features already requested by others will be deleted.

6. Adding a reason why you want it is allowed, but remember the 10 line rule.

7. If a user posts a problem that can be fixed, no help allowed other than saying poster should open a thread about his problem.


   Warning

Not complying with these simple rules, will get your post removed.

1. Please examine the list to see if your request is already there.

2. Please think about what you're requesting is a good thing for less knowledgeable users.

I've spent the last hour or so looking over several pages of these activation threads and haven't found one that addresses the problem I've recently had with my Win8 x64 activation. My copy of "8.0" Win8x64 has been activated since I bought it direct from Microsoft in January for $39.99 and burned the iso to DVD and installed it (This post does not concern "8.1" as I installed that on another partition entirely just to play with until it is ready for prime time.) I also got the free copy of Windows Media Center with its separate key. For the past six months I've had no problems at all relative to activation. I've actually never had any problems with activation (that I couldn't fix pretty quickly) ever since Microsoft initially started doing its activation bit with its OSes several years ago.

Yesterday, (I've listed my system specs) I'd been experimenting with using my UEFI bios to push the clock rates for my cpu with an attendant .15V rise in power to the cpu core--standard clock is 3.5GHz with Turbo to 4.1GHz--and I incrementally moved the cpu clock to 4.515GHz and turned off Turbo mode (of course), and found that my idle temps while running AMD's Cool 'n Quiet mode (through a UEFI setting) averaged 38C-45C; and ~55C under load (@4.515GHz), which is not much different at all from the standard stock-clocked temps. OK, that's as it should be for a well-binned, good-yielding chip, etc. It overclocks well with very little resistance... Read more

A:Mistaken OS requests for activation

Hi waltc,

Wow, you really know how to write a book with no stone left unturned! Anyway, since you have had 0 responses from the forum, I decided to just throw in my two cents. First off, my reactivations have been much more simple than yours; however, I can tell you that I have been successful every time. Some of these reactivations have included major components and the phone reactivation has always worked for me but the key to success in this area is, when they start to ask you questions, always respond with "one" as the answer. Now, since nobody knows for sure what information MS collects to identify an installation configuration, you can probably expect more of the same down the road but since Win 8 Pro is actually a retail license you should be able to get through a reactivation time and time again (if necessary). Remember, the answer is always "ONE." Cheers.

A:Log/Software of all internet requests?

Some third party firewalls can be configured to log every outgoing connection.

Parental Control software may also be able to log connections.

Most routers will have a log of some kind, but will only show which PC made the connection, not which application on a PC

You can use the netstat command in a Command Prompt as well:
Click Start | Run (or press WinKey+R), type cmd, press Enter.
Type netstat -b and press Enter.

This will show all current connections and the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) (if it can determine it), and the executable file that is associated with it.
(For Vista and later, you must also use the -F switch to get the FQDN and it must be run from an elevated prompt).

You can redirect the output to a file, and specify an interval and it will repeat every X seconds until you press CTRL+C

Googling on another machine produces alternative suggestions that a) some kind of malware is at work (possibly introduced by pdfcreator, which I've never used) - I've run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware and found and killed one item - or that b) this is something dumped on the machine by Dealio Toolbar, a Yahoo Add-on, which it's easy to install by mistake. I killed Dealio Toolbar and Yahoo Toolbar yesterday, after it had been on the machine, unwanted, for some time. The problem persists. I've uninstalled Firefox and installed a new 3.5.2 downloaded on another computer. No change.

I have no problems of this kind with a desktop, which I've just been told by Malwarebyte's product has lots of malware on it, or with a netbook connected by WiFi to a D-Link router.

Fss.exe is an excellent program, can't sing its praises enough. That being said, it can be a bit tricky to get the issues fixed once you've identified them. This post is two things - The first is a description of how I take the information provided by FSS and manage to fix machines without a corresponding uninfected machine of the same flavor of windows. The second is a request for the developer to add in some features to make this process easier.
For anyone who's unfamiliar, the app is available at http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/FSS.exe
This can identify missing registry keys needed for internet connectivity, firewall, or system restore, and it also checks the MD5's of the associated files in system32 and system32/drivers.

If you've identified missing keys, you're going to need copies of the right keys. I've found someone else who compiled a zip for each type of windows covered. http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/files/download/9-registry-network-keys/
While this has all the keys, you may need to edit permissions, in particular on the legacy keys, to be able to use the reg file.

If FSS identifies the firewall's turned off, just turn it back on using regedit (change the 0 to a 1 at the location in the fss.txt)

Next we get to the sys, dll, and exe files that get md5 checked. These are all available in windows CD's in compressed files which can be opened with 7zip. For windows XP these are available on the CD at i3... Read more

While this has all the keys, you may need to edit permissions, in particular on the legacy keys, to be able to use the reg file. I will let Farbar answer the rest, but I want to make one note. I know a lot of people feel its necessary to recreate the legacy keys. The reality is that there is just no reason to replace them. Instead your better off just deleting the legacy key altogether and reboot. The legacy keys will then be recreated when the service starts.
