Our Windows 7 users are prompted when their passwords will expire in 14 Days, however They are not forced to change thier password before it expires. If the users ignore the expiration warning they can only get logged into the network after having the helpdesk
reset thier password.
Is there a way to force Windows 7 users to change thier passwords on the day it expires. Our WinXP users get the 14 day warning and are forced to change thier passwords on day 14.
I have the GPO configured to notifiy users when thier passwords will expire in 14 days
Thank you,

A:Windows 7 Expired Password - Recvd Warning prompts but not forced to change password

After applying above settings, the user can change the password by default at the expire day. Please create a new domain profile and test the issue on several Windows
7 machines. Can the user be enforced to change password at expire day? If not, please refer to the following steps to collect the information for research.
1. On the DC, open GPMC, right-click Group Policy Results, choose Group Policy Results Wizard, follow the wizard to collect a Group Policy result for problematic
Windows 7 client.
2. On the Windows 7 machine where GPO failed to apply, please perform the following steps to collect log files:
a) Please add the specified registry key to enable group policy log (%windir%\debug\usermode\gpsvc.log), and remove or rename it to disable group policy log after
collecting data. You may need to create the Diagnostics key if it is not there.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics

Value: GPSvcDebugLevel

Data: 0x30002 (hexadecimal)
b) Then on the problematic Win7 machine, run command “gpupdate /force”.

c) Then on the problematic Win7 machine, run command “gpresult /v > gpr_win7.txt”, send me gpr_win7.txt file.

d) On the problematic Win7 machine, run command “eventvwr”, then expand to Applications and service logs -> Microsoft -> windows -> groupPolicy
-> Operational. Right-click on it and ... Read more

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.

Hey all...

I have a user connected to a Win NT 4 domain via a Win98 PC. I changed her network login ID and now when she tries to open Outlook Express, it will open and show her her mailboxes and the message list, but when she clicks a message to read it, it prompts her for a password. It's not her network or email password, neither of those work. If she logs in using her old network login, she doesn't get prompted for a password to see her messages.

I upgraded her to the latest version of OE and that didn't help.
We are not running Exchange or any other internal e-mail server.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone!
I am running Windows XP and Outlook 2003. I subscribe to Comcast as a my internet provider and recently was gullible enough to install the Constant Guard / Norton system Suite they were pushing to their customers. It brought my computer to it's knees and neither Comcast or Symantec would help. Symantec actually told me to uninstall and reinstall. Which I did, silly me. Still had problems and it blocks me from logging in to work server. So I uninstalled it again. NOW I cannot access my email through Outlook! I can access it fin thru Comcast's web site but removed all of my contacts when THEY got a virus this week that sent out 50 emails to people and ticked them off. So..... I called Comcast about my email and the air head told me that my modem was receiving their signal so I should be fine. And they don't support Outlook, the end. Nice! Can anyone help me? And can anyone recommend a good free antivirus program other than AVG? I appreciate your help! Thx, frustrated in Oregon

Hi All,
This began last night. I went to check my yahoo e-mail account as usual, via my Firefox bookmark, and a window came up saying "We believe your account has been compromised" and asked me to create a new password. I was able to proceed to my Yahoo e-mail but was warned that I was at risk if I did so.

So far I have done an Avast boot-time scan of everything, no infection, Malwarebytes scan of everything, no infection, looked over my zonealarm logs, checked Belarc to see if security is up to date (it is), cleared the cache several times and logged into Yahoo via other means than the bookmark. The same window comes up each time.

Thinking about this, I opened an e-mail a few days ago from a friend who is traveling in Thailand. It was from her real account but it was clear her account has been infected when I opened the e-mail, which turned out to be spam. I am wondering if this somehow has now infected my Yahoo account. There was a delay of several days between opening her e-mail and then getting the Yahoo password window.

This has never happened to me before on any account so I want to make sure that the request from Yahoo is legitimate before I enter my password. Part of me wonders, if my account IS compromised, how do I know that this request will not lead to further problems. Googling this issue or reading within Yahoo help basically yields a variety of responses from different people, from "this is spam" to "this is legitimately from Yahoo.... Read more

I cannot get my.yahoo.com to accept my password changes with the website. Since the announcement of the data breach last week, I have changed my password .... oh, probably 20 times. The website is customize-able and I use it for so many things: news reader, blog reader, what sports teams are playing today, investments ... you get the picture.
Each time I change my password, I can get into myyahoo customized pages, but then the password will not work for any future logins, even one minute later.
I have searched all over and can't find the answer to this on Yahoo's help pages or forums. It seems others are having the same problem, both with Yahoo email and with my.yahoo.com. I'm not concerned with the email login - I don't use Yahoo email.

Hi guys,

Network Solutions suggested I simply change my password and would not e-mail the original but by using this method I could lose some important e-mails and it would mean doing this on all of my computers.

I have been using Outllok 2007 for sometime now and have encountered no probs until I recently added two more mail accounts (POP3).

These accounts are basically just aliases from my main ISP provided account (personal account). I have set them up as seperate accounts in Outlook so I can send directly from them (as they are for my businesses that I run from home) and doesnt display my normal personal address in the senders field.

The issue I am having is that Outlook consistantly prompts me for my network password even tho I have clicked "Remember..." everytime.

Interestingly enough when I click on manual Send/Recieve it doesnt ask me

I hope this makes sense... I not sure how best to explain it all!

BTW I found a hotfix on Microsoft about this type of problem and it being a registry issue. I followed their step by step walkthrough but still no joy!

This is a simple home PC, single user with nothing but a cable modem between me and the internet.

I have two mail accounts, one POP roadrunner account and one IMAP AOL account.
It has periodically started asking for my AOL password, and changing the PW would solve it for months before it started again. This time it just isn't satisfied with that solution and asks frequently, but not every time, it automatically gets mail. Sometimes it appears it's trying the wrong PW and I re-enter it and it's okay for a few downloads. Other times, I just click "Remember" and it's happy for an hour or two. It is set to download every 15 minutes. The Roadrunner account never has this issue.

After searching, the best reply I can find is this:

I wouldnt hesitate to follow those steps; because even though it says its for Vista and XP; the principles should be generally the same as well. Especially because it says its for Vista also; as Vista is generally the same as Windows 7 with a few minor exceptions.

I am running a laptop with Windows Vista. I have Outlook 2007 and it has been running fine for the past year. Just today I got a request from AVG to update software, which I did. Now whenever Outlook goes to check my email it comes up with a box showing me the email account name and password. These items are filled in already. If I click on the okay button it keeps coming up with the same box asking to enter the account name and password. Nothing changes if I reenter the password or click on the save password.

I believe this is related to the recent AVG update but can not find any suggestion on how to fix it.

A:Outlook 2007 asks for password

Kevin, give a try with great caution:

1. Close Outlook
2. Open Windows Explorer (Type Windows Explorer in Start Search box)
3. Go to C:\users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect (username would be the person's Windows login username)
4. In the Protect folder, you would find a single file with very lengthy alpha numeric name
5. Rename that file by adding 'old' or 'corrupt' at the end of the existing file name
6. Now reopen Outlook, type the password and check the 'Remember my password' box

All the best!

I recently ran across the problem of Outlook 2007 not retaining my password on an Exchange account. I found this fix at another website.

"If you are encountering an infuriating problem where Outlook constantly asks you for your password even though you check the “Remember my password” box every single time, then you are in luck because reader Malcolm wrote in with this tip on how to fix the problem.

This fix should theoretically help with Windows Mail as well, but I haven’t been able to verify that yet.

Before you do anything else, close Outlook. You should also note that we’ll be modifying system generated files here, so proceed with caution or not at all.
Open up windows explorer window and then paste the following text into the address bar, which should bring you to a folder with a single folder inside with a really long name.

What you’ll need to do is just rename that folder to something else (I suggest appending -old onto the end of it so that you could easily rename it back if things go wrong)

Now re-open Outlook, and then type in your password hopefully for the last time, making sure to check the box to remember it. You should now see that the original folder was re-created again.

At this point Outlook should remember your passwords, but you can close Outlook and reopen it to make sure. If you encounter problems with this, you can remove the new folder and then rename the -old folder back to t... Read more

He even arranges for Liverpool fans from all over world trips to see Liverpool play, he organises hotels for them bed & breakfasts and even takes them on little tourist trips around Liverpool itself.
He even buys merchandise for the unlucky people who can’t make the trip to the UK to see Liverpool play, and send it all over the world, but the biggest things about this is that he does all this FOR NOTHING NOT A PENNY / SCENT.

I use Outlook 2007 on a windows 10 pro 64 bit machine. I run PureVPN without causing problems with most of my programs. But Outlook will stop showing images in my emails. I found that IE 11 shows Pure under the connection tab. When I look at the settings
the username is fine but the password has expanded to 16 characters. I think it keeps it and then adds it again for some reason.
I can delete the last 8 characters close settings and things are back to normal with my emails. It will definitely change the password when I reboot but also does it randomly as well. One day it kept adding the 8 characters every few hours but it usually
only happens once a day or every other day. It was not doing this at all until a few months ago. I also have a few apps that cannot use the VPN while others work fine.

IE must import the password from somewhere but I cannot figure out from where. Any ideas of how to resolve this issue?

Please will somebody tell me if there is actually a fix for this ( having tried the above link already ) - or am I , and others wasting our time.

Perhaps I will just go back to Incredimail as this is getting SO annoying now.

A:Outlook 2007 'enter network password'

Read other 16 answers

For no apparent reason when I try and send mail I am now getting a "Logon- pop.mail.yahoo.com" dialog box showing "server smtp.mail.yahoo.com" - with my user name pre-printed and (apparently) my password remembered. The "remember password" box is checked but greyed out. Pressing OK achieves nothing - neither does re-entering the password and clicking OK.

Any ideas ? - no clue why this has happened - never been like it before and now seems I cannot send any mail - when I try to do so the logon and password box pops up - although mail is arriving in my inbox. Seems when the "authorizing"
activity starts - after "connecting" - the server is looking for a password.

Am also getting this error message :
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.mail.yahoo.com', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Also can't work out how to change or reset the password !

Thanks for any help offered as usual .....

I need to change (at least) my password for my Gmail account.
It is set up to work with Outlook 2007 and I have not had any problems etc.
I do not wan't any problems either through the change etc.
All I can find on the Web is to change the password open Outlook, go to Tools, Account Settings, highlight the Email name and type.
Double Click it takes you to Internet Email Settings and you just change the password there, and then Finish.
Is that all there is?
Does that change my password with Gmail if I ever wanted to log on from another computer and?or does it change the password with other info held by Google?

I am also considering starting a new account (email name) with Google or Gmail.
Is that hard and any advice as I do not wish to lose all the info I already have under my presentb email system.
Thanks heaps.

A:Change Gmail password using Outlook

You need to go to Gmail's website to change your password. Then you'll go into Outlook and enter the new password.

Gmail is a service provided by Google. I'm not sure Google allows you to create a second e-mail address with your same name. I haven't tried it. It would be a completely separate account.

This is happening to me. Through standard and administrator accounts, UAC is prompting for the admin password to continue to open Outlook 2007 on Vista Home Premium. Just started happening when I did a repair on MS office 2007. All other Office apps are working without UAC prompt Word, Excel, etc. A standard user especially should not need admin privilege. Something broke

Do not wish to turn UAC off..

Please help,

Hi All,

I'm running Outlook 2007 with Windows 7 on my Dell Vostro 220. I recently started getting the popup prompting me to save my password in outlook. This has happened before on other computers in my office and we normally fix it by changing the password. This time I've changed the passwords, tried everything listed here - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290684 and it still wont save. I am prompted for the password every time I try to run a send/receive or when any email comes in or out. At first I would just hit save two or three times and it would go away for a little while until I got another email but the the emails would be sent or received. Now I am getting incoming emails but cant send, it just keeps popping back up. Any thoughts? I'm going nuts here!!

We have users on windows 7.  Most of the users are using outlook 2007.   We are on exchange 2007 on windows server 2008 Enterprise and the server resides on our office.  Anybody have any ideas how to figure out why the following happens?
A user will log into their computer just fine.  They launch outlook just fine and are working on the computer for hours.  All of a sudden outlook will prompt them for their username and password.  They can put their username and password in
and continue to work, but it may happen again within a few hours.  I have noticed if we do a ipconfig/ release/renew it has corrected the problem for the rest of the day.  It is so far only about 15 users/pcs who have seen this issue.  We have
replaced a user's pc to see if it fixes the issue, but the issue occured on the new pc as well.

Hello all,

I hope I can get some help / guidance from some one with more experience with the M400 if possible?!

I reinstalled the OS and setup the biometric security for me, which has worked flawlessly! However I stupidly also set up the boot up security (BIOS Password). So when the tablet gets turned on I can scan my finger and get in without any issues, however I now want to turn the boot up security off. So I booted it in to the OS and went to disable it....however it asks for my password....which I have forgot as I have been a typical end user and have been only using my bloody finger!

Does anyone know if I can disable the BIOS security while in the OS using the biomentric security rather than entering a password? I have tried just changing the admin password within the win OS but that doesn't work....any ideas?

Any help with be greatly appreciated!

You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password
