Internet Explorer 11 is automaticall sending proxy cached credentials instead of using the basic auth popup

Q: Internet Explorer 11 is automaticall sending proxy cached credentials instead of using the basic auth popup

Having a lot of issues with the new explorer 11 but the most baffling is this:
Say a user has (against policy) checked the box on the basic auth box allowing IE to remember the password. In previous versions even though this is checked each time the proxy sends the 407 response the box would popup with the information entered. IE 11
is not doing this, it just responds to the 407 with the credentials that were saved and goes on. Now this is a REAL problem if a user with admin access has entered their info for one reason or another and missed the fact that the box was checked. And I can
find no way to clear the cached credentials, deleting everything does not help nor no setting I can find including setting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings DisablePasswordCaching = 1 (which never worked in Windows 7 but still
popped up the auth box). The ONLY way I have found to clear the credentials is to have the user change their password so the password fails. As we are saddled with several large vendors requiring the use of IE I need to know how to fix this and keep it from
ever happening again. It is the most unacceptable behavior I have ever seen from a company that specializes in unacceptable behavior in their software products

Almost every time I open the start menu, I get the proxy authentication popup, despite ticking the box save the details. There are also a whole bunch of potential proxy servers which can be connected to (I'm at university), and it randomly selects which one to connect to (as this would be the default for "automatically detect settings" in Internet Options.

Cortana isn't available in my country, and I've changed the search menu to not use bing to find results. I have no internet-accessing apps pinned to start. Why is it constantly trying to access the internet? Why won't it save my details after the first login despite it trying to access the same proxy? Maybe too many proxy requests lined up after each other?

Am I the only person frustrated by this issue? Proxies are annoying enough without Win10's start menu!

in our company we are quite restrictive to hand out adminitrative accounts. All of our users have default user permissions on the workstations they work on.

If a user requires administrative rights on a workstation, we provide them with a second account which has an extra strong password, an expire date and which is restritced via logon-to to their workstation exclusively. They use this account if they need to
aquire administrative privileges with the User Account Control.

Unfortunatly we now discovered a bevior of the User Account Control which is quite shocking for us. If a user used his account once via the UAC, it works forever using cached credentials. The User Account Control always accesses the cached credentials no matter
if the account has been expired, disabled or even deleted. I could understand if this happens when a device has no domain connection, but this even happens at devices who are currently connected to the domain.

We've already tried to find a solution, but people only come up with the deactivation of cached credentials which is absolutly no option for us, since our employees have to use their devices offline.

Anyone knows a solution to either:
- Delete cached credentials that haven't been used for certain days / weeks
- Force the UAC to reverify cached credentials (maybe after a specific ammount of time)
- Disable credential caching for certain users
I'm aware that this deleted / inactive credentials might not have acces... Read more

First and foremost I am NOT asking for password assistance or help with how to bypass computer security. What I am trying to do is to understand what has happened with my PC so I can prevent this from happening again at some point in the future.

Here is the situation. I have a Windows XP machine that is configured as a domain PC. The PC used to be located in at my work office location and was connected directly to the network domain via LAN. About 6 months ago I started working from home and started connecting to the network via VPN (Cisco AnyConnect client).

For the past 6 months I have not had any problems with the PC. Whenever I disconnected from the VPN and locked my computer I was still able to log into the PC using the same domain credentials because I assume Windows cached my credentials locally and would then authenticate locally without having to authenticate against the domain controller. Since I use multiple PC's I haven't logged into this particular PC for a while and when I tried to log in today this is no longer working. I believe something has happened which caused the cached domain credentials to either get expired, deleted or changed.

I'm sure I can drive to work (inconvenient) and connect the PC to the LAN directly and log in to the domain directly to re-sync the cached credentials but I'm trying to understand what could have happened to cause this in the first place.

A:HELP! Cached Domain Credentials

Well I got it figured out!! After logging into the PC as a local Admin I connected to the VPN and then right clicked the Mozilla Firefox shortcut on my desktop and selected the option "Run As" and when prompted for credentials I entered my domain username and password and this seems to have re-synced the cached credentials. After doing this I was able to disconnect from the VPN, re-boot the PC, and then log in using my domain login info instead of using the local admin account. In Windows 7 you would need to hold the Shift key while right clicking the application and selecting "Run As Different User"

We have one employee who has a Windows XP desktop that they use at home (far away from the office) and they log in to Windows as a domain user (domain controller is running SBS 2003). They were recently required to change their password and I had them do it through OWA hoping it would replace their cached credentials with the new password. They can now log in to Outlook with the new password, but when logging in to Windows it still only accepts their old password. It doesn't sound like a huge problem but they let their kids know their password for some dumb reason and now that the kids are logging in and screwing with things so they need the password changed. I know this can be done if you connect to the server over VPN but since we don't have VPN set up is there any other way?

using exchange online with hybrid setup

--2016 exchange standard server onprem with no users on it

--100% of users are on O365

--using azure ad sync and no ad fs

Our AD policy requires users to change their passwords every 45 days.  on 80% of my users i have to manually remove the windows credential cache of outlook for the password to stick in outlook.  this means that every time i have a password change
i need to go to credential manager and remove the entry.  while this is ok on 1-2 users i cannot do this all the time for 200 users.  

After a password change outlook prompts for the new password and i enter it and check the box to save the password.  This works fine and then a few hours later i get the popup again to re-enter the creds.  It just seems that the new creds are not
sticking as it prompts us to update the password every few hours.

BTW, i know my password policy is aggressive but this is the requirements that we have.

has anyone seen this or have a fix?  i had opening tickets with o365 support as those guys are not very skilled.

As administrator of a workgroup of two dozen win 7 pro machines I access some network share during system installation/configuration/setup, e.g. \\system\folder, authenticating on that server, which works fine.

From my workstation I attempt to connect to a hidden share on a server called \\server1\share$.  I am not mapping this, but merely attempting to open it via the UNC path using run.
I open run and type the name of share \\server1\share$.  The account I am logged into my computer as does not have permissions to access the hidden share so I am then prompted for credentials.  I enter an account that does have permissions and
I can now access the share.  File explorer opens the share and I can browse the files.

A:Cached SMB(UNC) share credentials - how to remove?

Hi mac1234,
I have noticed the symptom, too. I tried to capture the related registry key or any related file without success.
According to my understanding, the cached credentials is based on the user session and it is cached in the memory. So it is not available to clear them manually. The only way is to log out and login again to clear the cache.
Actually this configuration is reasonable, it is convenient for users to access the share and the user should be always available to access the share if he knew the credentials of the share.

Hello All

We have users with WIN2K laptops who logon to the laptop using the cached logon credentials (username, password & domain). and then connecting via VPN to the network. Thus allowing them access to mail, resources, etc without having to re-enter authentication details over & over.

But we also force users to change passwords on a set period of time. But to change the passwords their password will require physical connection to the network, which they do not have.

Is there any way for a user who does not have immediate access to the network to change the cached logon credentials on the laptop to match with with changes made to their account by admin staff?

Any help much appreciated.

A:Changing cached logon credentials

We ran into that same issue where I worked, so I am interested to see if someone here has an answer to your question. Our main issue though was how long the cached account would last on the PC (would it expire after say, 120 days, or would it be useable forever?) if it was never to be physically connected to the network.

We ended up not registering the latops to our domain and not linking the userid to the domain in order to avoid the problem. For the most part, we were able to setup most of the login prompts that users would get when trying to access a network resource via VPN (such as email) to have pre-filled fields (such as domain and userid) and the users would only need to enter in their network password.

Good Morning All,
We have 3 computers that are taken off the network during the evenings, up to this point, we have just been using local accounts on the computers and no server accounts.  Now the call has been made to provide everyone server accounts and do away with the local accounts.  I know that when they are off site, they will get the "No Logon servers currently available" sign at login.  My question is I have heard about cached credentials, how do they work, is it something that I have to setup for them to be cached or something I have to enable?  I am new to the idea of being able to logon away from the domain.  We do not currently have a VPN connection available but are in the process of setting one up.
Our server is Windows Server 2008.  And the laptops are running Windows 7 Pro.

A:No Logon Servers Available - Cached Credentials

The credentials should be cached by GPO, called cached credentials. One simple thing to remember is that you must still have them log on while on your network for the first time. After that they will be able to log on even when not connected.  Also remember that this setting "times out" so to speak.  If they are gone for months on end then you might want to consider VPN's as well.

For discussion and advice.
Not sure if this is really the right forum for this but came across something in the last few days that really concerns me.
I wrote a small powershell app that I am going to deploy to supervisors that allows them to reset user account passwords.  This will be accomplished via delegated permissions to AD.  I was testing the app and whola it allowed me to change my domain
admin account password using my normal day to day user account.  Freaked me out so I start looking at AD to figure out how it is that my day to day user account had permission to reset my domain admin account.  Checked with a few other users and
they couldn't so I thought it was just my user account.  From there I check permissions in AD and could not for the life of me figure out how my user account was gaining access to my domain admin account.
Then I tried to run the same app as me on another computer.  Didn't work.. OK narrowing this down.  Back to my computer - tried ADUC and got access denied.  Weird.. so I now have it narrowed down that I can use this app (that has no permissions
built into the app) to change my domain admin password only on my computer.
So I look at the credential manager (Start  -> Credential Manager) and in there is an entry for my domain admin account.  I have no idea how it got there - I am not sure if it was via a remote desktop session that I saved the password to or

A:[SOLVED] Lost locally cached credentials?

Change the domain to Workgroup (any name will do)and reboot. You will need the local built in administrator password on this computer, to make changes and log in.
On the AD domain, make sure there is a user name and password for you and that you are logging in locally and not remotely as you need to be on the domain to accept your credentials. Once you have logged in locally once, then when you log in remotely you will have established credentials.

We're seeing a strange behaviour were cached credentials are overwritten but the entry picked is not the oldest entry available, but the next one in the list.

See attached. The oldest entry is from James_R, dated March 04 2015. When I logged in a new user (on the right hand side - Kris_M) I was expecting James' cached credentials to be removed. I can confirm this is the expected behaviour as I tried it on a fresh
windows image, different domain. However, Windows decided to replace entry number 0, of Rebecca.

We're seeing this with more than just one computer in the domain.

I have an odd situation happening and I think perhaps I need to revisit the methodology I am using.
Windows 7 Professional Laptop joined to Domain
Domain - Server 2008 R2 AD
Cached Credentials GPO applied to Laptop OU set to 50.
Policy is being applied properly to Laptop.
User logs in while connected to domain - no issues.
After about a week of being away from the office he now gets a "Cannot login because no Domain Controller is found".  This user claims that there is no way he has logged on 50 times since it was last in office.  If he brings laptop back
to office, attaches to network, gets another week before this issue appears again.  This causes much grief since the user has a desktop PC that he uses when in the office and these laptops are designed to be used when away from the office.
Now I have read multiple different articles on the forum and other sites.  There seems to be a disagreement on the GPO setting and its usage.  Some posts indicate that this GPO is for the # of users that get cached while other posts indicate that
this GPO is for the number of logins while away from the network.

 Which one is it # of users or # of logins? Is there a suggested method to allow a user to have MORE than 50 login attempts while away from the office?

A:Windows 7 Pro, Server 2008 R2, Cached Credentials

To answer your questions:
1. Which one is it # of users or # of logins?
You must mean “cached credential”. The number of the cached credential can be defined via group policy.
Interactive logon: Number of previous logons to cache (in case domain controller is not available) 
It can be defined between 0 and 50.
2.Is there a suggested method to allow a user to have MORE than 50 login attempts while away from the office?
It is not related to cached credentials. The user account has one cached credential whatever how many times he has logged on. The policy for account login attempt limitation is:
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies\Account Lockout Policy\Account lockout threshold
3.Is there a way to reset this "count" back to zero after connecting to the domain/Is there a way to check what the current count is on the cached logins?
The policy is:
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies\Account Lockout Policy\Reset account lockout counter after
4.Would it be easier to remove these laptops from the domain and have local users with the same password and use pass through authentication?
No need to exit domain. A local user can still log on although the laptop is a domain member.

Hi all!

We are having a problem in our company with users working remotely on their laptops. They use VPN to connect to the corporate network but they also use cached logons so that they can access their workstations offline. The issue is that even though cached logon is enabled, some people get the following error when trying to login to the system: "The system cannot log you on now because the domain <DOMAIN_NAME> is not available". I do not understand why it happens. If a user has his/her password cached (to put it simple, I know that there are encrypted verifiers, etc), they should be able to login without a connection with the domain. However, I work on a helpdesk and we keep receiving calls from users saying that they could logon to their laptops and connect to the VPN just the day before, and now it is saying that the domain is not available... What is going on? What could happen overnight? Is that possible that cached logon credentials also have the expiry date? The only thing that comes to my mind is that the "local" password simply expired at night and therefore system is trying to connect to the domain to verify if user is allowed to login... Does it make any sense, or there is no such thing as the expiry date of cached logon credentials?

Thanks in advance,

I am looking to notify users when they have been using cached credentials to log into their laptop for too long (however I define that).  I don't want to prevent them from using the machine with cached credentials, but I'm OK with annoying them
until they do bring it in.  :)
I figure a locally stored script is necessary.  I want to have it run at every authentication event (either login or unlock).  I'm unsure how to accomplish a couple pieces:

check if a user is authenticating with cached credentialsdetermine how long it has been since that user logged in while "within sight" of the DC to actually authenticate their login
I'm really stuck at how to do (1).  If there is a built-in method of doing (2), I would love to hear it, but I can always just store a date somewhere to be compared against. 

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.

Hi technet-community!

How can I set credentials in WPA2/AES/PEAP scenario for user based authentication in advance by script / import xml profile using netsh?
I've clicked my way through the wireless lan profiles manager a couple of times today and found out that when setting up a WPA2-Enterprise/AES/PEAP profile without setting the credentials in the 802.x1 authentication tab for user based authentication in
advance the user gets prompted for the credentials upon first connection attempt. Works as designed, fine.
However in case I do provide these credentials in advance via aforementioned tab these credentials are also used when signing off and logging on with a different windows user. Does this work as designed? (I hope so - as I would rely on that)

Seems like the credentials are stored in HKCU (if letting windows prompt upon first connection) or HKLM-hive respectively when providing the credentials while editing the profile.
Now what I am really after would be a way to provide the 802.1x user credentials programmatically or by import using netsh. However netsh doesn't seem to do the trick. As the credentials are not included.
Also I have found that netsh's lan context offers the possibility to set eapuserdata while the wlan context doesn't.
Other than that I've only found this article on stackoverflow to be helpful - pointing somewhere..

address and port. I have searched the Registry and can not find the address as a key.

        So my question is where could the key be stored and is the a best practice for configuration of an on site proxy that does not prevent use when off site.

A vulnerability in fully patched versions of Internet Explorer allows attackers to steal login credentials and inject malicious content into users' browsing sessions. Microsoft officials said they're working on a fix for the bug, which works successfully on IE 11 running on both Windows 7 and 8.1.
The vulnerability is known as a universal cross-site scripting (XSS) bug. It allows attackers to bypass the same origin policy, a crucially important principle in Web application models that prevents one site from accessing or modifying browser cookies or other content set by any other site. A proof-of-concept exploit published in the past few days shows how websites can violate this rule when people use supported versions Internet Explorer running the latest patches to visit maliciously crafted pages.
To demonstrate the attack, the demo injects the words "Hacked by Deusen" into the website of the Daily Mail. But it also could have stolen HTML-based data the news site, or any other website, stores on visitors' computers. That means it would be trivial for attackers to use it to steal authentication cookies many websites use to grant access to user accounts once a visitor has entered a user name and password. Once in possession of the cookie, an attacker could access the same restricted areas normally available only to the victim, including those with credit card data, browsing histories, and other confidential data. Phishers could also exploit the bug to trick people into div... Read more

A:Serious bug in fully patched Internet Explorer puts user credentials at risk

The article doesn't make any sense.  It starts of by talking about a vulnerability in Internet Explorer, then talks about websites doing something with cookies, and then the exploit is "proven" by hacking some website.

Just realized the quoted text is not the whole article.  Reading the Ars Technica article from the link now...

NT W/S 4.0 w/sp6a, upgrade install of IE 5.5 over possibly bad install of IE 5.0. We're running IIS 5 on W2K with MS Proxy 2. Services on the IIS server are set to challenge-response security.

Affected IE clients do not appear to be passing NTLM credentials to the IIS server, thus they are unable to access the proxy services. Intranet zone security settings and proxy configuration is set the same as on functional installations. The log files on the IIS server do not even show that the affected clients attempted to connect, much less any authentication failure. The Proxy server is set to fail-over to the internet connection. Users whose clients are not working properly receive an authentication dialog from the Radius server on our firewall.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing these IE clients to either not attempt or fail to authenticate with the IIS server?

We have a number of users where, when they change their network password, their Outlook will start prompting for the username and password.  This will happen every day until credential manager is cleared out. Then things go back to normal, until the
user has to change their password again.  It seems that once this problem happens this user will always have this problem.  The users are frustrated and is very vocal about how IT can't seem to fix the problem.  Any idea how to fix this permanently? 
Articles I have read say this is a known issue and there isn't a fix.  Office 2013 is the version.

Last week my computer had a virus that I successfully removed using Malwarebytes. Since then I have been unable to access the internet using my default browser Google Chrome (instead I receive a 'This Webpage is not available.' message with the error: Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.

Or with internet explorer where the following message is received: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

Yet it works fine with Firefox. I then tried signing in via Windows Live Messenger where it failed and upon doing the connection troubleshooter received an exclamation mark next to the proxy and key ports sections.

Is there any way for me to fix it so that I can have normal internet access? One major problem right now is that I cannot even upload pictures via Photobucket or even e-mail where Google Chrome gives the message: Attachment failed. This may be due to a proxy or firewall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,"Internet Explorer is using a proxy server on this computer to connect to the Internet." Hitman Pro gives me that message when I do a scan, and is unable to repair the problem. I did all steps suggested at this link, as that person's problem was very similar to mine:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic335743.html ("internet proxy?"). None of the procedures and suggestions contained at that link have worked. Also, Symantec's "Norton Power Eraser" reports two problems: m2wshlex.dll (shell extension) and deaddiskdoctor (directory).I have now done the steps at this link:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html ("Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help").I've pasted the DDS.txt file immediately after this, and attached the Attach.txt and Ark.txt files.

Each application will have it's own proxy settings. Some, such as Firefox, will have the option of using system settings but this must be manually selected. Others will require manual proxy settings.

I went on a vacation recently and came back to discover that my housesitter messed my computer up. I kept getting the warnings about my computer being infected with several viruses (malicious adware software), I can't remember exactly which one it was. I got rid of it, but then I could not get on the internet. I finally discovered a post about unchecking "Use a proxy server for your LAN", so I unchecked it and was able to access the internet. However, whenever I try to google anything, it takes me to different "search" websites instead of linking me directly to the site I want. Or, it will send me to a website that's trying to sell me something and I have to completely close IE down. This is getting really old, and I don't know how to fix it. If I recheck the proxy server box, I cannot get on the internet again. If anyone knows how to fix this, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

I was wondering, is there a way to apply settings to Internet Explorer to only proxy ip's in a list. So basically if I have 123.456.1.1 and 123.456.1.2. I only want to have 123.456.1.1 and 123.456.1.2 proxied, anything else that is browsed would be unproxied and go directly to the internet. I suppose it does not have to be in Internet Explorer, it just has to be a system wide setting.

I repaired a laptop for a friend who was missing 1 year of MS updates and had expired virus program. Computer was loaded with viruses. Using ProcessExplorer and a host of the usual virus removal tools it appears that the machine was cleaned when I worked on it and appears to be now. Problem is that a proxy keeps getting added to Internet Explorer. This was the situation before and after he used the computer for about 2 weeks, it reappeared again.

Am I wrong to suspect it having something to do with his unsecured WiFi router? Could someone with an infected computer be tapping in and re-infecting his laptop ? I have a HiJackThis file ready to post if someone is willing to assist me with this. There is an entry about a Proxyoveride that seems suspicious.

Thank you in advance.
