UHRS Sign up

Q: UHRS Sign up

I really want to sign up for UHRS, clickworker seems to be the obvious solution but they are not recruiting people from my country. Is there a alternative way I can still work in UHRS without having to use clickworker.

Preferred Solution: UHRS Sign up

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.)


I don't know where to go for help. So, here goes:

I work for a company that uses an UHRS tool to rate advertisements. I switched over to another company that uses the exact same tool. When I first logged onto the UHRS tool with my first company, I had to enter my Windows Live ID. Ever since, all I had to was click on "Enter Windows Live ID" without actually entering it (it always remembered it) and voila! Now, however, my second company (no longer with the first) requires me to put in my new Windows Live ID, but there is a problem: even when I log out of the UHRS tool, it automatically logs back onto to the first company's site portal. I don't know how to make it so I can enter a new Windows Live ID. This is all taking place on Internet Explorer (hate that browser!). I don't think it's possible to uninstall Internet Explorer for there to occur a "refresh." I know if I use a different computer where I never logged onto the first company's UHRS, there would be no problem. Why is it doing this? Making me unable to properly log out? Has it remembered my IP address after a few log-ins? Are they worried about logging onto the site using a different Windows Live ID with a competing company?

I don't want either company to know I worked for the other. If the one I left finds out, they're going to ignore me - that's all. And if the one I am currently working with finds out, they might be somewhat helpful but a bit miffe... Read more

A:cannot log out properly of UHRS tool shared by more than one company

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.

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?

Q1) I've added OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to be able to disable the lock screen again, but it doesn't do so at startup.

Q2) I'm not aware of way to stop this yet when you have netplwiz set to automatically sign in to an account at startup. The blue note box at the top of the tutorial below will show you the default locations for account pictures to help.

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?

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?

My younger brother and I share a computer. It is Windows 10 Pro. I was letting him use it while i was asleep. All I know is that he was playing his video games. Anyways, he left the house to go hang out somewhere and i wake up to see that when i turn on the computer, only his account shows at the sign-in screen. Meanwhile, there are THREE accounts on this computer. My account, His account, and a local that my other siblings use sometimes. I restarted and even shut down my computer about 4 times. I waited until he came back and logged on his account to check what was wrong, and I see that my account is still there with all my files and docs. The other local account is there too. I log out to see if my User name is there but it isn't. I tried to see if my account was deactivated using these methods but none of them worked. I've looked on Microsoft's forums but all I found was how to activate the built-in administrator account. Please do your best to help!! I have important work to do on my account but i can't access it.

I Just had a log in error. I have a Dell Precision 7710 mobile work station with the Anniversary Update. I turned on the machine and tried to log in and got:

We can't sign into your account
This problem can often be fixed by signing out of your account, then signing back in. If you don't sign out now, any files that you create or changes that you make will be lost.

Logging out and restarting did not work. I shut it down, undocked (it is a Thunderbolt Cable Dock), and then restarted. Luckily it was back to normal log in. I shut down docked, and booted and it was normal log in again.
Not sure what happened. Hope the issue does not come back.

I read online this happened to others, but cannot find a cause or fix (other than restarting) and wondering if anyone knows why this happened.

I have not been able to sign in to MSN, including Messenger and MSN email for the past two weeks when it has worked fine for the last two years. I am able to get onto the internet and browse. I noticed on my MSN billing that the computer was connected to the internet in the middle of the night without our having done so. The contact from MSN says it is highly improbable that someone is accessing our computer from outside - yeah, I don't believe him. I've read through many threads here and took the recommended steps including downloading and running Spybot and AdAware. I also downloaded hijackthis and saved the log at home. I am unable to access my email at home so I could not activate my account last night. I will paste the log into this thread tonight. Hopefully I will be able to do that, since I have not been able to send out other messages from home. I am unplugging the computer from the phone line after using it. I looked at the Event viewer and noticed that the Event log had been turned on and off when the technical descriptions say that cannot be done. I hope that you will be able to find something from my hijackthis.

can someone please help?

A:why can i sign into msn

I do not understand your problem. Please explain it more clearly.

- Is MSN your internet service provider?
- Do you connect through a dial-up modem? (using your phone line)
- Do you have a cable modem?
- The program I believe you are referring to is Internet Explorer, not enternet.
- I do not know what you mean by "it kicks to to the hit the refresh button detect network settings page"
- What does this mean "so i have been calling and everthing msn tells me doesnt work"? Who have you called? MSN support?

Well, I wonder if those virus software's recommended here , Malware and superantispyware and avast and windows really do any good. For years I have been an AOL paying member until Time Warner merged with them and from then on, a non -paying member, cause TW and Aol allowed it. Reason i am mentioning this is because I cannot get any type of response from AOL in my latest problem with their browser. For the past 2 or 3 days I am not able to get beyond the welcome screen. If i click on any of its tabs, aol does not respond. I can't open mails and etc. I noticed that the welcome screen is not up to its standard, most inset screens were blank, hardly any images as the welcome screen is noted for. By tweaking the internet, I was told that a virus has infected my browser. So i scanned and defragged my entire C drive to no avail...that is why I mentioned the validity of these virus programs. So i thought by reinstalling AOL as an existing member, it might get rid of the problem...but that has not helped either.

Hello. I was trying to sign into the domain on one of my workstations when I got an error message. I solved that problem before by removing the computer from server, joining a workgroup, then rejoining the domain. Only problem is that this time, when I joined a workgroup, I forgot the password to sign on locally, and Last Known Good Configuration won't help in this case. Is there anyway to sign on to the local machine? Even if I'd have to create another account, that's fine. Or is there a way to get the computer to give me the option to log on to a domain? Thanks a lot

P.S. Maybe I should have named this thread "Cannot Log On To XP"...

Hi! I found your site somehow and it seems like you are very capable of helping me out here...hopefully. Ok, about a week ago I got a trojan in my laptop and I also a couple of worms. My anti-virus(Mcafee)found them but it deleted the files that were infected. After that I tried to sign on to MSN but it won't work. It says that something is wrong with my connection, but it was working just fine before. I tried moving it to different phone jack but it still doesn't work. My computor that I have upstairs works just fine for signing in. It will connect but not sign on. I am pretty sure that all the trojans, viruses, etc. are off but there is still something wrong. I thought maybe one of the files deleted was for MSN, so I uninstalled MSN and reinstalled it back to see if it would replace the files. It didn't work. So I don't know what else to do. Can you please help me? Thanks.

P.S. I have Windows XP, just in case that is helpful. If you need anymore infor mation i will be happy to give you as much as needed. Thanks again!

Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed with increasing frequency I am having trouble logging into my Windows 8.1 notebook. I try to sign in at the usual screen after boot and get the following message... "You can't sign in to your PC right now.
Go to account.live.com to fix the problem, or try the last password you used on this PC." The way it works is I get this message the first two times I try and the 3rd time it works (all using the same password that I have always used). My wife has a Surface
running 8.1 RT and she is getting the same issue. Anyone know what is going on? 


A:You can't sign in to your PC right now.

Thanks Kate.  In my case, I don't login with a local account at all.  When I installed 8.1 I went with the Microsoft account only.  I don't think that article would apply.  Also, I think I have found the problem.  My notebook has
SSDs and boots up very quickly.  I notice this only happens when I enter the password immediately on boot.  I think I am entering it faster than the wireless has established a connection which is causing the disconnect.  If I wait even 10 seconds
longer it works.

It sounds like you just need to install the driver for your NIC. If you still have any of the CD's that came with your computer, then you may be able to get the network driver that way. If you don't have any of the CD's, then download the network driver from a working machine and then install it to your computer.

Hello all,
I'll try to make this short. It's all about the sign in screen with multiple users.
Computer: Dell, ordered 1 yr ago, P4, 1.5 GB Mem, 80GB HD, 250 GB HD added (internal), Win XP Media Center 2005.
We have 5 users on our PC: Me, the Wife and the 3 kids.
Each person signs in with their user account.
Everything runs great, fast and nice.
SOMETIMES... and I mean sometimes... after someone logs out of their user session the computer will sit at the user sign in screen (or goes to screensaver if it sits for over 10 minutes) then when someone goes to sign in, they click on their name and/or the icon, the white text box for the password pops up but there is NO cursor flashing waiting for you to type in your password. When you click in the text box after it comes up you still do not get a cursor.
Doesn't happen all the time and cannot find a pattern.

I'm a Software Eng., former PC builder and keep our PC very clean. This is not a junked-up box.

Thanks for any help.

How can I get rid of the dialog box cdm.exe and return back to my home screen? thx

A:cdm.exe box comes up when i sign on

Is that cdm.exe or CMD.exe, and a box with a black background?
If it's cmd.exe, is it just a small box over your desktop, or does what's behind it say "Safe Mode" in the corners?
What's the message in the box?

I never log out. Is it because I have No Scripts Extension on firefox blocking Exponential on this board?

Thanks in advance.

A:Why do I always have to sign in.

NoScript only blocks java/flash. Make sure you have cookies enabled. This is where password info is stored for logging in.

I'm not sure what you mean by 'Exponential'. The only options for blocking TechSupportForum in NoScript are techsupportforum.com and google-analytics.com

Uh, this has been like this for about 2 - 3 months now.
I've contacted the MSN Messenger support people but they've told me all these things and they haven't worked yet. So I decided to try here ^_^

My problem is as follows -

When I try to sign in on MSN Messenger, it doesn't sign me in. Instead it goes back to the MSN sign in program screen without any error message.
It's pretty weird because my main email account, it doesn't sign in. But if I try with another account that I never really use these days, it works.

I've tried -

> Uninstalling & reinstalling MSN.
> Deleting the files from the temporary files folder.
> Ran the search (Start > search) and looked for any files named SetupDl.exe and deleted them.
> Restarted after every uninstall.
> Uninstalled every MSN add on.
> Deleted any MSN/and add on folders in my Program Files folder.

My computer info -

> Using MSN Messenger 6.2
> Connecting from home Cable LAN.
> I don't have a firewall.

If you could help me in any way, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

A:MSN won't sign me in.

Q: Sign in

When I turn my computer on, I get the message password or user name do not match. So, click the arrow to bring up accounts. I get Admin account and user account. There is also a second admin account. What is the story with that? Can be removed?

When I log out of admin I then only get admin and user account to sign in. Very odd.

A:Sign in

your probably showing the hidden admin account, try disabling it.
