[SOLVED] No Password Prompt When Vista Awakes Though Password Enabled

Q: [SOLVED] No Password Prompt When Vista Awakes Though Password Enabled

I have Vista. I am trying to set it so that when I put my laptop to sleep it will ask for a password to log back in when I wake it up. Under "PowerOptions > SystemSettings> Power Protection On Wakeup" I have it set to "Require a password."

However, when I wake up my laptop it does not ask for a password but instead loads right back up to the desktop. When I leave the computer idle for a long period of time and it locks itself/hybernates/whatever it does ask for a password, and I do have a password saved on the computer.

Is there something I am missing here? I'd like for the password prompt to start working.

Thanks.

Hi there so I am trying to enable file sharing from my PC with my home network and I would prefer to have protected file sharing enabled so if you want to access the files on my computer you are prompted to login with a username and password. The issue I am having is this prompt never is presented because I have the same username and password on both PC's. Is there anyway to change it so it still has the prompt or am I requred then to have different passwords on both PC's if I don't want this to happen?

A:File protected sharing enabled but no password prompt is required?

By default windows passes the username and password your logged in with if that is correct it wont prompt so someone would have to be logged in with that username etc to access the file. changing user or password would prompt it

I have Vista Ultimate installed on my newish computer. I also have Outlook as part of Office Pro and use it for e-mail. Every time I attempt to download e-mail a dialogue box pops us prompting me for my password. I have clicked ?save my password?, entered the password under ?E-Mail Accounts User Information?, signed on using the password and nothing seems to stop this popup from appearing. Each time it appears the server stops downloading the e-mail and I must restart. What am I missing here? I?m the only one using this system, so the use of a password is somewhat overkill, but I can?t seem to eliminate this step and cannot seem to get the password to automatically send.

The other issue, also related to security is that whenever I attempt to alter a file, a setting, or any other object, the system prompts that I do not have permission to complete that action. I am logged in as ?administrator? and, as above, I am the only one who has access to this system. I?ve reentered the admin setup info multiple times but this does not resolve the problem. At the moment I cannot delete files, cannot change file names, cannot move files from the HD to an external, cannot update ap files such as Photoshop and cannot open OS files.

If anyone can explain what I am doing wrong and how to resolve these irritating issues, I?ll be very grateful! Thank you

Hello there again! I have been asked to fix a netbook that I believe had Windows 7 installed on it.

Hi all. A couple of questions.

I mapped a network drive from another win2k pro to my win2k pro machine. When I boot or login, It wants to login to the network drive and it prompts me for an account password every time. I can put the password in and it will connect the drive, but I want it to connect the drive without prompting for a password. How can I do this?

Also, I have a printer shared on a networked machine running win2k pro. When I want to print to this locally shared printer, it prompts me for a password also. How can I get rid of this?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Getting rid of password prompt

Put the same username and password on the other W2k pro machine that you have on the one your logging on to then make sure these 2 things are shared to it correctly (the printer and the files).

Hello.

I have a Windows XP computer and a Windows 2000 Server. When the XP computer is turned on, I want it to automatically be logged into the server.

Currently, when you want to view the server's files from the XP computer, a username and password prompt is required. There are many other computers on the network that do not require this prompt.

How can I make it so no password prompt is required or so the computer logs in automatically?

Thank you,

I have three different MS Access 2003 applications that run on a SQL backend. For the Access front ends, I am utilizing Jet (.mdw file) for User level security. Scope of the applications has increased to where we are using eForms across multiple business sites. What I would like to do is enhance user security by tapping into Jet through vba before an activity is recorded under that user's name and date stamped, which is something as close to an electronic signature that Access could get I think. This would be a separate step from initial application log on, which I already have users do.
Ideally, the user would press a button to 'sign' a form, the vba subroutine would prompt the user to enter his application password, then verify the password against the users mdw file and then stamp the record with user name and date.
I know how to do everything except the password verification part. I am familiar with DAO, ADO and ADOX protocols within vba but all I can find is code to set up a new user and assign a password, but not verify a self-prescribed password of a user.
Does anybody have any comments, suggestions?
Many thanks.
 

A:Solved: Prompt for user password in MS Access vba

ctwest, sorry for the delay in responding, but Access questions are best posted on the Business Applications forum, even though yours is a programming question.
If you haven't found an answer to this question yet, you do not need to prompt users for their password to identify them.
Access knows who they are when they have logged on, you can identify them using the CurrentUser or Application CurrentUser.

I am a Vista Home Premium user. It all started when I kept getting a User Name and Initials prompt upon opening any Office document (WORD or EXCEL). I troubleshooted the issue, uninstalled and reinstalled Office, and still the nagging prompt panel. Upon Googling the issue, I discovered that I was unable to open or change permissions in the registry User Info file in the registry.

Still researching this issue, just today, I am now, when the UAC kicks in, getting a prompt to enter my OS log-on password! When I put in the password, it doesn't take it and the prompt for password screen returns!! I believe that the registry has locked this feature, and I am thus unable to get the password to register!

This is alarming! Is this an indication of malware or virus? I am presently running Trend Micro, but have no idea how to proceed. I went to try and turn off UAC, but when I click to do this, it prompts for my password, doesn't take the password, so I am not able to access this feature.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am sorry if I am being unclear, but basically I am getting the OS password now--when, for example, I right click on a program and go to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, the password prompt comes up!

I've had an intermittent Outlook 2003 problem for the mast 6 mo that ATT/Yahoo can't fix and claim to be an incompatibility between Outlook 2003 and Win7. Every 2-3-4 min I get a pop-up box (see attachment) prompting me to re-enter my network email password. It doesn't matter if I re-enter the password, click OK or cancel, the box goes away and I can still read/send email just fine. That is Outlook works fine and it's not a fatal error. After rebooting to XP (dual boot system) and finding the same problem, installing Firefox and finding the same problem, I got to thinking what if it's Norton antivirus? Rather than uninstall it, I just unchecked all the boxes AND THE PROBLEM APPEARS GONE (it's only been 1 hour, but that's probably long enough).

Has anyone else seen this? I'm running Norton 360 Premier. Any suggestions on how to fix it without abandoning Norton AV?

Hi all,

I have a user account on my laptop, running Windows 7, named 'RDPLIVE'.

FYI: It is an admin account, but it is NOT the in-built Administrator account.

What I want to do is either:

1) When the password prompt appears at first boot-up, I would like my 'startup apps' to load in the background, so that once i have entered my password and 'logged-in', my startup apps are 'nearly loaded'...if you know what I mean.

OR

2) Disable the requirement for the password at first boot-up, but then still be required to be entered should I lock my PC at any later point in time.

If only Option 2 is available, then I would go for that one and then part of my startup 'commands', apart form opening apps such as anti-virus and torrent clients, etc... I would also add a 'Lock PC' command, so it 'mimics' what I want to get out of Option 1.

Sounds like a good thing to have on my laptop as I am the only one who uses it, and will ever use it. There will always only be this ONE account on the laptop and I use it as a desk PC (w/docking station), so in terms of 'how secure' this idea is...that is not my main concern.

I wold just like to know if what I want to happen is at all possible!

Thanks for reading and any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Martyn

I know this has been covered probably somewhere, but I can't find out how to add a password box to the UAC prompts so it asks for my password (or whoever's the account it is using privileges with). It did this sometimes in Vista, but I have Windows 7 (it came with this computer). unfortunately I found a tutorial on the forums, but it uses GPedit which Windows 7 Home Premium does not have. I would like to have the extra security by having to enter my password with UAC (I believe it does this in OS X too).

This computer is admin ; and to protect elected to use text screen saver with expectation to have it password protected. To do so I went into Gpedit.msc and firstly enabled password protect the screen saver. The screen saver did not offer a password when I access the machine. I then enabled screen saver timeout.
After a few minutes the screen saver kicked in. I again could access the machine without being challenged for a password. Last I enable 'screen saver' and that did not work. I am unable using the obvious tools - to password protect the computer using the password screen saver.

And after all this effort I thought I'd change the screen saver from text to photos to see if that would help and 'wait and on resume' are now greyed out?

If there is another obvious method to enable a screen saver with a password protect let me know.
Thanks

Why not use the simple method of right clicking the desktop, choose personalize, screensaver and then check "on resume display login screen"? Although I am not sure why its not working after using gpedit. Did you restart the pc? Did you try gpupdate /force in command prompt?

Also make sure there is a password on the user account.

I am setting up a NAS on my home network. The unit is a Seagate STCR4000101. The primary purpose of this unit is to store backups from the 4 computers on the network.
During the installation/setup, I was asked if I wanted to have a private folder. It was highly recommended that backups be placed in a private folder for security purposes. So, I initially set up one.
This unit is recognized on my network and I have access to all the public folders through Windows file explorer. However when trying to view contents of the private folder, I get a dialog box titled "Windows Security", prompting for a user name and password. I've tried just about every user name and password that I know that might be associated with windows or windows networking - none have worked. The only thing that I haven't tried is a user name and password for signing into windows. I don't have one because I don't use one. Is it necessary to have a user account that has a password and that password is the one that is being prompted for?
If that might not be the reason, what password/username is it requesting, and where can I find it if I have created one and I forgot.
I understand there is a way to get rid of the password prompt, but will that give me access to the private folder?

Both on my PC at work and at home, both using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8, I do not get the prompt that asks me if I would like to save my password.
I have the Ask me before saving passwords option checked in Tools/Internet Options/Content/ Settings, and, as far as I can recall, I have never seen this prompt since switching to IE8, so have not indicated a No to the prompt, which I understand deactivates its appearance thereafter.
Is there some other setting in Internet Options or some Registry setting I can tweak to activate the prompt?
 

A:IE8 No Save Password prompt

Maybe

Open IE 8, then go to IE Tools - > Options - > click Tab "Privacy" - > click PREDETERMINED (Defaul) - > put ur options to Mid or Mid High!! (If you click in "Advanced" in this same window, u must UNCHECK all here! and done!!!!!!!!! really, it's the final solution! (u can changed ur IE config from Keyboard but dunno how XD my childs make my IE 8 dont remembered my los and passwrds, but this is the solution! bye!

One of scores and scores of people having home network connection issues...when prompted for the password, etc, when trying to access a network share (another desktop in the house)...This may sound stupid...but what is the attached jpg network password asking for ?

Right now only a 2 PC network (not Homegroup) Sharing is enabled and in Private mode all network settings have been checked and double checked

Is it the password for the current system...ie this PC's password when trying to connect to Network share ?
Is it the particular user that's logged on password ?
Is it the password for the network share I'm trying to reach ?
Is it separate or different from the Windows On-line account password ?

Same for user...is it the current users name...is it the current PC's name....or is it the name the MS account is using
Thanks....TiminAz

A:What is this network password prompt asking for ?

The user name is the current user name of the comp you want to access. BUT, you must prefix it with the comp name.
e.g. MARYANNES-WIN10\username

Naturally, the password is for the 'username' account.

These credentials should be stored in ctrl-panel\Credential Manager\Windows Credentials.

Hope this helps.

Hi all. I recently upgraded from xp home to xp pro, although I dont know if that matters, as I am not sure of exactly when this problem started. Anyway, some websites I go to for banking and such have password prompts or pages. When I click on the link to go to the members page to enter a password, it is as if I entered the wrong password and I am taken to a page that says invalid password entered, or whatever page the site has set up for passwords that do not work and deny entrance. IE wont even bring up the page that allows me to enter the password, it just skips right by it. It this a new bug or does this have to do with upgrading to xp. I have all the latest patches and stuff, and never had this happen before. Thanks! Norman.

The only suggestion I've seen to avoid this issue is to turn off password expiration entirely, which I can't do. However, the endless prompts to change my password are driving me nuts. Here's the message:

Your password is going to expire in 'n' days. Would you like to change it now?

Generally this defaults to 14 days, and a Windows computer will ask me if I want to change my password - every single time the computer is restarted over the next 14 days. Here's the crazy thing... if I set my password to expire in 90 days, I want to change my password in 90 days, not 76, 77, 78 days... 90 days. At the very least I would appreciate one of those handy "do not ask me again" options, so that I'm not prompted again until the 90 days has passed. This is one of the most-annoying features of Windows, close behind the User Account Control, which asks me if I'm really sure I want to run some program. I mean, after clicking a link, choosing to download the file when prompted, and clicking "Run" in that dialog window (if using IE), I might not be 100% certain I wanted to run the executable, right?

Hello Ironwil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the options in the tutorial below to change the warning time to 0 days, or what you like.

Hi all.
I wanted to enable autо logon on my PC and I did it as I knew: CMD > Control userpasswords2 > Uncheck "Users have to enter a password to..." > Enter my password. Now I have this weird problem:
When I try to run a program with Admin rights I get the UAC popup, but it says "Enter an admin password to continue and press Yes. Problem is that I have nowhere to enter the password and even if I just type it Yes is still grayed out (unavailable). What to do???? Also, I noticed that my user status is changed to guest account...???!?!? Weird.... I can't go back to userpasswords2, because UAC won't let me and I can't disable UAC, because that need UAC too!!!!
Please help!!! This is very very bad!!!

A:UAC control password prompt

Personally, I'd recommend two things (until further investigation)
Create new User Account with Administrative rights, move all of your files, shortcuts, etc.. from the old profile to the new profile.Assuming that the new account WON'T require a password for UAC, download & install windows 7 Manager, and configure the way the UAC works in the application.

Boot into Safe Mode (UAC isn't used in Safe Mode), run Windows 7 Manager, and disable the UAC fully here. Restart back into "normal" mode.
Hope all is well.

Hi all,
I am having a few problems with my computer. I run XP Professional.

At work we have a network setup, and I can log onto it correctly - access other computers, internet and printers.

I am sharing a few folders myself and others have access to these. However, I know want to password protect access to my computer. I have tried disbling the guest account, and allowing only my admin account but this does not solve the issue.

How do I do this? (ie, if someone searches "\\myComputer" a password promt should appear on their screen. Others run winXP, win2000, winNT ...

Thanks to those who do answer, I appreciate the help.

So, I was working on my mother's laptop computer earlier, and she was interested in getting rid of the Welcome Screen and the Password Prompt at the startup of windows and also getting rid of unused users.

I found the process for these things on the internet, and disabled the welcome screen through "User accounts" in the control pannel and eliminated all but the administrator (my mother "Jane").

I then put "control password2" into run and deselected "Users must enter user name and password". Again, I removed all the unused users except for Jane who had administrator priviliages.

I then restarted

Upon restart it hit the login screen and beeped, saying that the user name and password were incorrect. Regardless of what I do it will not allow me to login. I have tried accessing in safe mode, I have tried ctrl + alt + del, I have tried using the names "administrator" and "computer administrator" and nothing will work.

It almost seems like I have removed the ability to log in somehow???? My thoughs are that I may have messed something up in removing the users under "control password2" and if so, what can i do to fix this?
 

A:Locked out at the password prompt

Sounds like you set it to AutoLogin with the account named Administrator. On XP home you will have to get in using safe mode to fix this issue. Did you ever set a password on the Administrator account or your mother's account.

Hi
I want to be able to reset the password promt pop-up. I clicked on don't remember anymore passwords and I don't know how to find this prompter to let it remember passwords. I know this is only a simple question but I could do with some help please.
Many thanks and sorry to be a pain asking something so trivial.

A:Password remember prompt

Assuming this is for Internet Explorer, go to tools > internet options > content tab > autocomplete settings button. You should find what you're looking for there.

I installed Homegroup on a new laptop. I can access the other two computers in my house. however, when I try to access the new laptop from the other computers, I get a user id & password prompt.

I found out that the time on the new computer was one hour off, and it was set for "Turn on password protected sharing". I fixed both of these problems, but that did not help. Is it possible that the changes I made were not written to the registry?

Please help.

Please help.


I suspect the other two computers are not win 7. Homegroup requires a password and when you set up win 7 and it asked you what type of network you connect to (you said a home network) it provided a user id and password.

Check how to join homegroup (in help under network and sharing). A work around is to create a new connection based on the older network config called "workgroup". It doesnt use IPv6 nor require a password.
