password prompt for internet site

Q: password prompt for internet site

All of a sudden My internet Explorer and Mozzilla are demanding that I input a username and password in order to access a certain web address. If I don't put one in or if I try what I think it should be ... and apparently it isn't. then I get a message saying that "the connection was refused when attempting to contact with www.carmike.com" (mozilla) or "you are not authorized to view this page"(Explorer)

Preferred Solution: password prompt for internet site

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.)

This question is for Edge, but I didn't see a forum specifically for that.  I had one website that had saved my username and password, but would not save a new password after having changed the password on the site.  Each time I would go to the
site it would attempt to login using the old password, despite me entering the new password each time.  So I deleted the entry for that site in the password vault.  Now that site will not prompt me to save my username and password.  Even checking
'remember me' doesn't help.  Most posts I've seen on this issue don't seem to have a working answer, so I thought I would try here.  Any thoughts are appreciated.

I've searched all over the place for this same issue with no luck. I've come IE won't save passwords, IE won't prompt to save passwords, and IE won't save passwords on certain sites, but I have been unable to find why on one computer it will prompt to save
the password for a site but it won't prompt to save on that same site on a different computer with the same browser.

So let me start by saying this, both computers are the same model, have the same OS, and same version of IE. (Dell OptiPlex 3010, Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64, and IE 11). I have verified the site in question allows passwords to be saved. It works on one computer
and not the other. Even if we try the same username. The company that runs the site has also verified this (Can't post the site name for privacy reasons).
I set this new user up on this computer and have done the following:
1. Made sure that prompting to save passwords was enabled in Internet options
2. Reset IE to defaults
3. Added to site to compatibility list
4. Added site to trusted sites
5. Restarted computer
6. Tested password prompt worked on another site
I know this is kind of vague, but if I am missing anything it would be greatly appreciated if someone could point it out.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I am facing a strange situation in one my windows 7 PC. The PC is under corporate network as well as corporate control. So all the access are restricted.

I am trying to access this below internet site, in various ways; such as browser and command prompt(application).

URL : http://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/...plugin-2.5.pom

This is my maven repository site(used in application development). If I hit this in browser, I am getting response from this site. But the URL while accessing in command prompt(application) i am getting connection refused.

When i analyses the situation; I found only this particular site, HTTP port(i.e. 80) was disabled. If telnet for the same site. I am getting "Connection refused" error. like telnet repo.maven.apache.org 80

If i try with other site with port 80, say for an example; telnet google.com 80. It works. i am getting positive response.

In home network(open internet), everything fine. No issues.

So why this particular site alone HTTP port was blocked only command prompt NOT in entire system? Is that possible to block alone in command prompt ? what would be the root cause?

A:Unable to access internet site in command prompt.

You really need to contact the corporate IT staff about this. Only they will have the knowledge of the network necessary to understand the situation.

Hi CaptainPlanet,

Are you trying to connect to your own wireless network? If so, is your network secured with WEP, WPA or WPA2?
You may find out the Security key from your router's wireless setting page.

You might want to remove all your wireless network profiles then re-add your own Wi-Fi connection manually, here's how. Make sure that you enter the correct security key.

Please post an update.

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:

- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.

Any help would be very apreciated.

Get authorization prompt many times when open a local html with proxy setted.

Reproduce Steps:
1, a authorization needed proxy. Say CCProxy setted with username:root password:root
2, set the given proxy server in IE.
3, create a local html which need many internet access. Say it may include many pictures that need to download from internet.

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

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

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

I have tried most of the posts on the internet to fix this problem--this is under IE6--"Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The problem just suddenly appeared. I'm running a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with Win XP Home, Service Pack 3 installed, 1 gb ram and a 40 gb HDD. Had McAffee Internet Security Suite preinstalled but removed it via REVO Uninstaller and have only Windows firewall enabled and NO anti-virus. I did try downloading with Windows firewall disbaled and still no success. I can navigate to a site like Google Chrome download page but then when I click on the download button, the error message appears. Also can't download Microsoft or Windows updates from either site, although, again, I can get through the "checking" phase. I've run Malwarebytes, A-Squared, and IObit 360 and removed about 13 traces of malware ranging from low risk to high risk, defragged and cleaned the reg, all to no avail. I originally had IE7 installed, read about rolling back to IE6 and doing the typical repair sequences, again to no avail. Supposedly IE8 fixes this, but I can't download it, although I did try the stand-alone installer of 15 MB without checking the "get updates" box. It loaded and installed and shows up as IE8 but still had the same problems. Then did a system restore back to before the IE8 install, rolled back to IE6 again... Read more

Hi --I have a problem on a home Dell Inspiron 700m laptop running Windows XP-SP3.SYMPTOMSHere is a short list of the discovered symptoms:1.

Whenever I boot up my pc I get a prompt to update my windows 7 codecs, which when I click yes takes me to http://www.windows7codecs.com/. The site was listed as unsafe a few days ago (not anymore though), and attempting to download the .exe file still causes chrome to auto-cancel it saying it might be malicious. Is this malware? Whenever I tell the update prompt to not remind me again it just pops up the next day again, which makes me think it is, but I've scanned with Microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes and adwcleaner and none of them found anything.

Today when i went to restart my computer after installing a wireless card i clicked on Start/Shutdown as usual but a different style box came up with the options in a drop down menu instead of the usual 3 options in front of you. Also when it restarted it went to the log on page and asked for a password which it has never done so before. I purposefully left the password blank when i first set it up so as not to forget it (no one else logs on to it but me). I just clicked enter and it started as usual but how do i stop it asking for the password at all? What could have caused it to change to this setup as nothing for windows has been changed?

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

Here is a picture of the one on Mac OS X (Although I don't need it where you have to type the username)

Hi all,

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

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

What I want to do is either:

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


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

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

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

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

Thanks for reading and any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Or, if that is not possible, how would I make it so that a specific computer cannot have access to computer a's files? i tried changing the workgroup to two seperate workgroups, but that specific computer is still able to access my files even though the account is password protected, and the accounts names are different, without a password prompt of any sort.

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

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

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

I then restarted

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

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

A:Locked out at the password prompt

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

I am attempting to connect to my new roommate's network, which is password-protected, but it does not prompt me for the password and therefore won't allow me to connect to the internet.

It will begin the connection process, and declare that it has connected, but it really is not connected. Also, when trying to connect, Windows informs me that I am missing a "certificate."

A:No network password-prompt

What's the exact version of Windows on each machine? XP-Home or XP-Pro on yours? How about his?
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
PING <computer name>

<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

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

I am a newbie so sorry if this sounds too easy -- I am running SBS 2008 and Exchange on my local machine. When I check my my mail it keeps asking for a password and the one that I use to log on to my machine does not make it happy! It connects to exchange and gets the mail, but it keeps nagging me for a password. -- Any help will be greatly appreciated!

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

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

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

Thank you,

I have an external HD on my desktop, which I wanted to share with my son's laptop. No problems, I ran the wizard in xp, it seems to be working. However, I have to enter a password to access the drive, as well as username, which happens to be mine. I don't want to do this, I would like to not require the username and password. I have simple file sharing enabled on desktop, but it is missing as an option on the laptop. Can someone advise me on how to do this? Thanks.

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

A:Password Prompt Boxes

Try exiting all security programs except the Windows firewall. I would suggest youuninstall 2 of them---Spybot and AdAware. After exiting/ shutting down all security programs,try going to a site and see if you still get the request for password to allow connection to thevarious ad purveyors and trackers. You can block the installation of ad/ tracking cookies (third party cookies) in IE and Firefox. After changing your settings to block, simply remove the existing ones by running a scan with Super Antispyware or delete them manually. Install NoScript and AdBlock Plus on your Firefox Browser. NoScript will keep malware from installing by just visiting a site plus many other types of malware threats and Adblock Plus blocks ads from installing. I noticed you were asking about a firewall. I have used the ZA firewall for many years with noproblems. Just be sure to ONLY accept the installation of the free firewall and NOT any other toolbar, addon, browser helper or Ask Toolbar. Be sure to uncheck any of those. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722 (NoScript)https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865 (AdBlock Plus)http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en-us/zo...ee-firewall.htm

My wife and I share one computer, using two separate user accounts. She works from home, so I'm usually running a few apps before I go to work. I leave these running and she uses fast user-switching to work from her desktop all day. Lately (of course, she didn't tell me when it started to happen), when she tries to switch from my account to hers, Windows prompts for a password; BUT THERE IS NO PASSWORD ON HER ACCOUNT!!! If she tries to log back in to my account, it also prompts for a password, but my account is the same...there is no password!
I've tried using the administrator password, just hitting enter, etc, etc, but nothing will get me back to either desktop; I'm stuck on the Welcome Screen. I've googled around, and tried some solutions for similar problems, but I haven't had any luck yet; nor encountered anyone with this same problem.
So, to review.....when the comp is first started, you can click either username (there are only two, both administrators), and it will log on no problems. If you click Start, Log Off, and Switch User; you are back to the Welcome Screen, but cannot log in to either account; and you're forced to restart from the "Turn Off" but... Read more

A:Prompt For Non-existent Password?

I dont know if this will work or not. But l would try to start windows in safe mode and go under the administrator account. Then set up a password for both accounts that you cant get into. So that way you know the password. Then restart and see if you can get in using the new password. Let me know if this works or not. I never seen this problem before. To enter safe mode hit f5 or f8 i think while you are booting up then choose safe mode.

I recently installed some applications onto my XP VM and now I'm getting a prompt for an XPMUser password.  How do I get rid of this or is there a standard password that I can input here?  I would hate to loose a days worth of work and have to restart theis VPC.  Pelase help!

A:Prompt for XPMUser password

Allright, so if you are sure that your password is blank, try this. 1. Turn off/shutdown the vm. 2. Open its settings, in Integration Features section, uncheck the checkbox that says automatically enable at start up(similar to that). click ok 3. Now boot the vm. At the login prompt, enter user name as (the xpmuser as displayed in the setup wizard), and hit enter (password blank), this should log you in. 4. Now, open command prompt, and execute "net user (username) (password)", if successfuly, your new xpm user password is reset to  (password), if you wish to change the whole profile, you can just add a new user account and make it a member of Administrators group. 5. Now, open settings, go to "Credentials" page, and delete credentials. ALso, now go to integration features page, and enable "integration features at startup" checkbox. 6. Shutdown vm. (if you like it quick, just kill "vmwindow.exe" process in taskmanager) 7. Start the vm again, it should prompt for credentials, and you can enter the newly set credentials, and do remember to check the "Remember Credentials"; Do reply if it helped.Thanks,

Hi all. A couple of questions.

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

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


A:Solved: Getting rid of password prompt

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