Preferred Solution: Can't logon because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer.

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 all, am a school teacher and my school is trialling 1:1 computing with some students. Essentially, classmate pcs from intel with windows 7 enterprise. Yesterday at about the same time, all the students find that they cannot log into their classmate pcs, with the error "You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please see you network administrator for more details."

Now this is very strange - the students have been using their machines for about 2 months to date without any error. How and why did they suddenly act up, altogether?

I took a machine that has not been issued out, and found that I could log in. Then I found that it is not connected to our wireless as we changed our password a few weeks back. So I keyed in the password, got connected, and logged off and log in again - this time it shows the error. At first I thought it could be a windows update messing things up, but this small experiment indicates that this is not likely as the wireless was connected only for a minute at most before i logged off. We did not change any group policies.

I also found that local accounts cannot work either. The only accounts working are network and local admins.

Any ideas?

A:logon method not allowed suddenly

Welcome to Seven Forums mayhemsci. Have any changes been made recently? Firewall or security? Are you the admin locally, or is there a system admin who may have changed something?

Assuming you are the admin, even though you said you hadn't changed anything, confirm Group Policy settings:

Start> In the search box type


and hit enter

Accept any elevation dialog

Expand Windows Settings> Security Settings> Local Policies> Click on User Rights Assignment

Make sure that Deny log on locally is empty

Make sure that Allow log on locally includes Administrators, Backup
Operators, Guests, and Users

It's possibly that Users is missing from Allow log on locally

A Domain Policy may be overriding the Local Policy if you are not the local admin

Windows 2003 server local policy keeps loosing the users that I set so that it can be browsed accross the workgroup. I can browse the server from the other pcs in the workgroup only for a few minutes until the policy looses the users all by itself. I cannot find anything that can explain what's going on. BTW - I can browse the other computers from the server with no problem. The local policy on the other computers don't change themselves. TY

A:logon failure: the user has -been granted the requested logon type at this computer

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

Hi all. My school forces me to have antivirus, which I've managed to successfully go years without using, so I installed their corporate sophos protection, which they provide for free.

Now my computer has a 2-5 second hang at the logon screen where the screen becomes non-responsive. Is there a way to prevent it from loading before my logon and force it to load after logon? Like 2 minutes after logon? The only reason I have it is because it's required for any and all internet access.
I intentionally keep my laptop barebones and free of bloatware in the name of speed. This logon lag is exactly what I want to avoid.


A:Method to force antivirus to load at logon instead of on startup?

Hit the start button at the lower left hand corner and type services.msc Find the antivirus Service right click>properties>change start-up type to automatic-delayed-start>Left Click Apply Reboot,Enjoy.

200+ Windows 7 Pro machines, similar configuration, 1/4 of them x86, 3/4 x64.
Encountered 6 such machines having this problem: After a restart, user logon stuck at a black screen. In Windows event application log there is an event 'The Windows logon process has failed to spawn a user application'. This application is an in-house developed
application and is called at winlogon\userinit registry key.
A restart into Safe Mode, first logon will experience an auto-restart, then second logon ok. Subsequent logon into normal Windows is ok.

Setting the group policy setting to User Account Control: Behaviour in Admin Approval Mode to 'Elevated without prompt' doesn't solve the problem.

All machines are in workgroup.
There seems to be a relationship between security hardening (through local security policy) and this behaviour but not conclusive because some of the machines encountering the problem had not been hardened.
When I booted a machine under MS DART and change the userinit registry key to call userinit.exe instead of the in-house application, subsequent user can logon correctly under normal mode. Then changing it back to call the in-house application will again
logon into black screen.
Based on these observations, can anyone share what Windows does during Safe Mode to recovery such problem? under what circumstances does it auto-restart after a logon? Can local GPO enforcement corrupt the default user profile?

Hi At my company we have Lenovo L460 with windows 7 and Cisco anyconnect 4.3 - we have a sim card with 4G data connection to a service provider(Telenor).When I have logon screen for windows 7, I can see with FN+F8 that the wireless WAN is "on", but when I try to connect/logon with the cisco anyconnect "start before logon" module the cisco say that it can't see any internet connection. And I tried to wait for 3-4 minutes so all services where running, but no connection.... If I uses the Wifi connection then it just goes smooth... If I logon to windows 7 and then start the mobile data connection at logon to cisco anyconnect there is NO problem.. So are there somebody who can say that:1. Huawei does not support cisco anyconnect SBL?2. Lenovo does not allow you to start a mobile connection before you logon windows ?3. Or something? A lot of thanks in advance!!!!!!!! Regards niels

Today I am having many of my windows 7 machines reporting the following error when trying to log into the domain

 An attempt was made to logon, but the network logon service was not started

Overall, the only changes that have been made were the past windows updates that ran today.

Is anyone aware of a fix for this issue?

Hello all,

This is my first ever post, usually with a bit of searching I can find the answers to most computer related issues I have, but no matter how hard I look I cannot find the answer I need to solve this rather annoying problem.

So here is the low down, I have my desktop PC running Windows 7 Ultimate. I also have a cheap old Asus netbook running Windows XP home edition SP3 (not much on it so it runs ok).

I am trying to share files between them so my Mrs can access the music on my PC.
So far I have been able to access the shared files folder from my netbook on my PC. I can also detect the PC under the Workgroup tab of 'My Network Places' on the netbook.

However whenever I double click on the 'Richyv-pc' icon in the Workgroup folder is comes up with an error message that states:

"\\Richyv-pc is not accessible. You might not have perrmission to use this network resource. Contract the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

I have granted full share access to all the wanted files from my PC with access to 'Everyone' with read/write control.

I have tried many different things from many different forums but none have fixed this problem. Im sure Im missing something obvious but I just cant see it. My PC is part of a homegroup because of my work laptop that I bring home from time to time but I dont think this is caus... Read more

We are trying to enable SSO with Smart Cards for Windows 7 and eventually 10. During logon users can see up to six certificates available for logon. This is going to cause confusion for the users. Selecting only the correct certificate will allow the user
successful SSO. It appears that this MAY be the certificate with the Enhanced Key Usage (EKU) that contains 'Smart Card Logon (' and has the text under the box where you enter your PIN that says 'Windows will try to connect to the network'
I found an article, below, that gives more options for certificates but these don't seem to offer what I'm looking for.

Hie guys, Iwas looking on some postas with regard to this topic and tried to implement the suggestions.
I followed the suggestion below

To resolve this problem: on the remote computer, select Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the network>Properties>Add Users or Groups, add everyone or any users you want to be able to access the computer from the network.

This fixed the problem on the interim and I could access my file shares and printers. However when I restart the machine or even log off nad log on again, the prblem resurfaces and all the user accounts Iand groups i wolud have added to Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the network> will be removed and the field empty. hence I suspect spam the disallow remote access by editing these entries .

Any ideas on how this can be resolved would be appreciated

Hi everyone,
I am so glad to have found this forum and to see that others in the past with similar problems have had them resolved, looking forward to nutting this one out
The computer is a win XP with RAID that freezes the mouse and the keyboard if a mouse or keyboard button is touched at the logon screen.
The mouse works fine until a button is pressed, you can even click on a user but are unable to enter a password due to the keyboard and mouse freezing at this moment.
NOTE: originally happened with a USB keyboard and USB mouse, using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
I am writing about my fathers old computer which suddenly started “freezing up” at the logon screen, after he wasted weeks trying to get it to work he decided that it was a hardware issue and bought himself a new computer.
Since then I have proved that there was no hardware error by putting an extra HDD in and installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Everything functions fine under Ubuntu and the files are able to be accessed on the RAID.
While i can access and copy files as needed from the RAID i would like to return access to the win XP install and let my father use it again.
I first attempted to run Live rescue CD's but they could not find the RAID drive.
- Bit Defender Rescue CD – Saw the ubuntu drive, no RAID
- Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 – Didn't see any HDD's.

A:Unable to logon, Win XP with RAID, KB & mouse freeze at logon screen

So you are able to run the machine  using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
Step 1: 
Download and install LogonFix
Click the Highlighted button.

When prompted select yes.
Allow the program to reboot your machine as well when prompted.
Step 2:
Download drivecleanup.zip to your desktop.
CLICK HERE to determine whether you're running 32-bit or 64-bit for Windows.
Once the determination has been made open either the 32-bit or 64-bit folder.
Right Click the .exe on the inside of the folder and run as admin.
A command prompt window will open telling you what has been removed upon completion.
Note: All usb devices must be removed from your machine during this step, except your keyboard and mouse of course. 
Step 3:

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.
Close any open windows
Double click the TFC icon to run the program. (Vista/7/8 Users, Right Click and select Run as Admin)
TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run
Click the Start button to begin the process
Allow TFC to run uninterrupted
Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine, if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean.

I have a Gateway MX6920 that had Windows XP preinstalled on it, I formatted and installed Windows 7. it only has the basic Windows 7 programs on it +Firefox, Google Chrome, TeamViewer, & an Anti-virus, but I have an ongoing issue where the computer completely freezes. the mouse doesn't work, no programs open, and I cannot bring up the task manager. if I press ctrl+alt+del it will still be frozen for about 5 more minutes, then give me the following message the "logon process was unable to display security and logon options when ctrl+alt+delete was pressed" and then just keeps being frozen until I cold boot shut down.

I scanned for viruses, ran sfc /scannow, with several programs but they all report clean

I am at a loss and this is a daily issue

Googling this error message brings up limited but unresolved issues

A:the logon process was unable to display security and logon options whe

according to the following link:

Failure to display security and shut down options. The logon process - Microsoft Community

it looks like the windows winsock needs to be reset. Hopefully doing that will solve the issue: to do that; do the following:

open a elevated command prompt(click start, programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator) type netsh winsock reset hopefully that will help. If not that then in the same command prompt; type the following: netsh winsock reset

try one of the above commands and see if that helps to resolve the issue.

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. During the procedure a screen showed that Dell Access had to be removed before Windows 10 could be installed.
It was removed, and everything else went smoothly.
Now during logon, at the login screen, the system will take a while to initialize, and say "Failure to initialize". Luckily I am able to login using a password.
I want to use the fingerprint reader to login. Dell says that this system have no issues with upgrading to Windows 10, but not now. So how can I solve this problem?
I will like to do either the following:
1. Get the fingerprint reader working.
2. If it cannot work, I want the logon screen to stop trying to initialize and just use password to logon.

Also, I am getting 2-3 nos of the same user on the login screen. There is only 1 user on this computer but I see mostly 2 but sometimes 3 of the same on the lower left of the logon screen. I also want to remove the extras. Not an issue, but I think it may be related to the above as well.

Vanilla Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop running Windows Vista. It has never had a login account or password protection, and is only used in single user mode.

Yesterday, start-ups fine, no password. Today, I'm presented with the user logon widow prompting me for a password, and cannot logon to Vista!

No-one has meddled with the laptop. Don't know if SP1 was automatically downloaded
and installed - whatever the factory defaults were from Dell. I've not seen any references to this kind of issue on Vista, but have heard about a similar thing with NT.

Any suggestions how this could have happened?

Ok, this one isnt as easy as it seems.

I know about the temporary user problem when a user has their folder deleted & try to log in again & get a Temporary User profile. However, my problem is a little more servere.

Any new user that tries to log on gets the Temp profile.
3 previous user profiles work ok. However, one of them changed their password & they then got the Temp profile.
The PC is connected via a Domain, so i removed the PC from the Domain, added it to Workgroup & logged in locally as a new user with Admin rights & I still get the Temp profile.
I've checked the permissions & the registry & cant find anything wrong.
This is what gets reported in the error log:

I have viewed this site for a long time, but this is the first time I needed to post a problem. I do not know if my problem belongs in the OS forum or the Networking forum but hear it is!

I am setting up a new Dell PC with Windows XP Home Edition with 256 megs of memory. I need to manually log onto a Novell network and automatically logon to Windows XP Home Edition. In other words, I do not want the windows logon screen to appear after I log onto Novell.

I have tried Microsoft's article Q315231 "How to Enable Automatic Logon in Windows". The auto logon to windows works, however, it seems to disable the Novell logon screen. When I boot up the pc no logon window appears (Novell or otherwise). I can however, manually log into Novell after XP is loaded.

I need to allow different Novell users to log in to one Windows XP profile. Is this possible? My network admin and I have not been able to figure this out.

I will not be able to test any suggestions until Monday, but I can supply additional information to any post this weekend.

Thank you in advance for everyone's efforts.

Dear All,

When turned on, the computer boot up smoothly to Welcome screen awaiting for password. After enter the password and hit enter. It shows "Loading your personal settings" which is normal.

Yet, 0.1 second after sucessfully logon, I got kicked back to the login screen. It seems the computer logoff my account automatically showing "Saving your account settings" and then it is waiting for password.

This repeats every time I try to logon, always got kicked back to welcome screen after 0.1 second.

I tried to logon as computer administrator too but no hope...

Then I tried to open up a safe mode by pressing F8. Well, Safemode exhibits in the same way as normal mode.

I also tried the command prompt option. The wried thing is I got the Welcome Screen instead of command prompt.

Basically, all options in the F8 menu lead me to that evil Welcome Screen and autmatically log me off after logon.

I absolutely have no control over my computer now. T__T I believe it's some sort of virus that's tricking me but I don't know its name. Would someone help me?

Thanks in advance

My method for automatically changing the Windows 7 logon/logoff wallpaper with every logon.

Step 1: Use one of the many guides on the web to enable custom/oem logon wallpaper, such as Brink's: Log On Screen - Change

Step 2: Copy whatever JPEG images you want to use for logon/logoff wallpaper in to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
You do not need to rename them -- just so long as their file extension is JPG or JPEG they'll be fine.

If no other variables in the network has changed it does sound like some kind of routing or DHCP mismatch which needs reconfiguring.

Would you know what I mean If I said can can you logon to a profile local to the client (i.e not on the server) and 'ping' the domain server IP address from a command prompt? Equally can you ping an internet address such as google.com?

Hi! I had my XP set up so there was no logon, just when I turned on my computer, went to the desktop. Well, after visiting a website which suggested to change passwords on XP, I did. Now, not only do I get a screen that I have to type in the password, I am also getting a "Logon Message" box, which is over the "Log on to Windows" box, which says: "LOGON MESSAGE; The system could not log you on. Make sure your User Name and Domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in password must be typed using correct case".

Then, when I click "OK", I get the Log On to Windows Box, and just type in the password, which then takes me to the desktop.

Questions are: What could be the problem re: UserName and Domain? I did go to User Accounts and changed my name while I changed the password on the original account, did not add an account. I am the only user of my computer, nobody else.

And...what do I need to do to get it to just startup, bypass any logon and go directly to the desktop, like I had it set to do before? I cannot remember how the heck I did this before! But I have had it set to just startup, no logon for 2 years as I am the only one using it. Just changed the password, per the websites suggestion (BlackViper.com), as a security measure, hackers, etc. Did not realize it would change how I logon!

Thanx so much! This has been driving me crazy...liked how it was before, not any logon or messages! Have tried to figure it all ou... Read more

how does one create, re: auto logon to ISP from startup or logon

In know you can create this from "Task Scheduler" or or by draging the ISP connection icon to "Start Up".

I'm missing a step, cause after loging on, the logon to my ISP appears and I still need to click "logon". It should be seemless.

We have a Win 7 desktop at our Senior Center. I am no expert, but am the volunteer who tries to take care of our computers. I was told to make it so that the general public could not logon on to one specific computer, as it is the one we are going to use to create our newsletter, and we didn't want anyone messing with it, as there are two other computers they can use.

I went into control panel, and as best I can remember, I set up a user name and password. I do not know what a domain is, in the sense of Win 7. I get that error message every time, in spite of believing that I get the username and password correct. How can I undo what I did, so that authorized volunteers can use this machine, which happens to be the only Win 7 computer, the others being Vista or Win XP, and MS Publisher which we will be buying must run on Win 7/8?

I will do something drastic, if called for, such as opening the case and removing the BIOS battery for a while if that would reset anything germane to the problem.

I really must get an answer, or we cannot get out the next newsletter using MS Publisher.

A:There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon re

The desktops were donated, as we are a 501(c)3 charity, 100% volunteers. We have no reinstallation disks, which I would use if we had them. That is how drastic it is. I would be willing to lose everything to get back the use of this only Win 7 computer we have.

I am using Microsoft Word 2003 and want to address an evelope but every time I click on the address book icon I get, "Logon failed: You must logon to Microsoft Exchange to access your address book. Error code: "unspecified error"
My question is how do I access this and add my contacts from Outlook Express OR create an address book in Word? I've tried the Mail Merge but that didn't do anything except create a bunch of envelopes with only first names.
Please help as i don't relish the thought of entering an address every time I print an evelope.
Thanks and God bless,

Having major problems with a) logging into Windows 7, which started when an automatic logon process suddenly introduced User screens, and b) a disabled Administrators account.

Now after bootup I immediately get:

"You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer.."

After clicking on boxes, I get to a choice between "Guest" and "Other User" - and then can enter and get into "Mike/ no password" account and open the Win 7 desktop.

However, when I try to run "netplwiz" I get the permission screen for altering programs - with the YES option blanked/not available.

So the Administrator account appears to be disabled, and I appear to have no way to alter that - no capacity to run system-altering programs or netplwiz.

What can I do to sort out this double problem? Many thx.

P.S. I ran a Password Reset Disk - and have all the passwords for the user accounts - and the capacity to alter them, but that doesn't appear to be the problem.

A:"You cannot log on because the logon method you are using..."

I'm guessing you are on a domain. Try leaving and then rejoin the domain.

We have strange problem with our one Windows 7 Pro machine. We have few users, that have set option (Logon to) to login on specified computers - for example pc1 and pc2.
These users are accessing these PC's via RDP. The problem is, that on "pc2" machine, none of users can't login via RDP to it. They can login locally, but not via RDP (they have all permissions to logon via RDP). "pc1" is working flawlessly
(users can login both locally and via RDP).

The funniest thing about it is that, when users have "logon to" option set to "pc1" and "pc2" - they
can't access "pc2".
BUT... if we set "Logon to" option to "All computers" - they can easilly access it.

Hello. For some time, I ran IE6 and could not open any HTTPS web page because it always gave me the above error. So I installed IE7 yesterday thinking that would solve the problem. But it did not. I continue to get the 405 error every time (but only on secure web page loads). Fortunately, I have Firefox to view secure web pages.
I have gone into Tools, Internet Options, and set everything the way some online recommendations suggested. I deleted cookies, forms, etc. Nothing works.
Someone at work told me there is a Microsoft 'HOT FIX' that was sent out some time ago to address this problem (apparently MS itself caused the problem with some patch). But I have not been able to locate this hot fix.
If you know of a patch I can apply to solve it, it would be great if you would share it with me.
Or if there is some other fix I can apply, that would be welcome too.

So I installed Windows 10 on my laptop which is this one: http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-dv7-6c95dx-Intel-Core/dp/B007XQM0TS and I recently reverted back to Windows 7. Well when I went to log in to my computer and I use the same password I've always used, even with Windows 10, an error pops up saying 'The login method you are using is not allowed, please contact your network administrator.

I am the only person who uses this computer. I have a desktop as well but never had these problems. I've read you can reinstall the OS but I'd rather not do that.

I keep seeing this:
1. Run gpedit.msc.
2. Expand Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies
3. Click on User Rights Assignment
4. Ensure that "Allow log on locally" includes Administrators, Backup
Operators, Domain Users or Users.

Which makes no sense to me because how am I suppose to run anything if I can't get into my computer?

I've read on Forums where people say you can get into the settings from another computer on the same Homegroup which my desktop is, but I only have Music, Video and Pictures available for share.

I'm so confused on what to do and I could use some help if possible. I had another thread about a resolution problem that never got fixed, I can go into that later. But thanks in advance.

my XP Pro pc boots up to the welcome, logon screen ... I put in Administrator and password and it starts to log on, then immediately logs off again. I do not see any errors, although the screen flickers quickly as though it is attempting to load something, before it returns to welcome screen again.
I can not boot into safe mode, same problem ... and have tried various solutions concerning replacing userinit.exe which I found in other forums.
I am still stuck and am hoping someone may have solution for me.
I do know that sometime in past day or so, the other user informed me
that he found process running which when gogled was listed as a trojan, then deleted file and registry entry. Unfortunately he doe snot seem to remember then name of the file he removed.
Can anyone somehow magically point me in the right direction for this ?
