blanc local password field now requires a password

Q: blanc local password field now requires a password

Hello,

a few months ago I switched from Win Vista ultimate to win7 professional 32bit.
My computer was connected to a home network with a server and data server, that server also patched me trough to internet.

since my computer support installed win7 on my computer , they brought it back to me, with a blanc password and my login name (lets call that sangetsu). i just had to click my icon on login and i was logged in and also had straight internet connection trough an ''unknown'' network. fine by me, just needed internet and office anyhow.

Recently my computer had an update and i lost all means to connect to the www.
so i decided to make a new username on my server, with admin rights and plugged my comuter back in our local network. on that new user i had internet connection again but no access to the files that my local admin had.

the problem now is this: whenever I try to log back on my local admin ' sangetsu ', which didn't require a password , i get an error that says : wrong password , even when the field is blanc. even when my new user i made in ADUC has all the admin rights possible, it won't let me share my previous folders and desktop, also doesn't allow installation of new software etc etc... I've looked on the net for a solution and my PC support that installed my win7 OS can't help me. what should i do?

I await a quick reply
thanks in advance.

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.)

Basically I'm locked out of the admin account and only have a restricted kids account. Help! Long version below...

Long Version
So my in-laws have a Vista Home PC that I had to previously wipe/re-install. This time I setup two user accounts. One for the adults and one for the kids. The kids had restricted internet and couldn't install w/out admin password. The adults account

Everything has been great for weeks until yesterday. One of the kids went playing games under the kids account. Later that night the adults use it and now the log-in screen has a password for the adult's account. Additionally, the icon or avatar for the user increased in size. So I tell them to try this, that, and another password that they frequently use and none of them work.

So I was trying to find things online about how to remedy this problem, but I can't find anything. I also searched these forums and aside of a corrupt user account (the adult's) or the kids, are they destine for a wipe/re-install?

They can use the kids account for some things, but if I recall correctly, the kids aren't an admin account. And I don't know if they have ever even used the password to allow things for the kids before. Maybe one of the kids did something?

Ideas? I'm wondering since the original admin adult account never had a password, can I just remove the hard drive, throw it in an external and try and recover their photos and stuff? Or is it just a wipe/re-in... Read more

I have a D-Link DES1108 switch which is connected to a router which is connected to a cable modem.
I have 2 computers and a NAS also connected to the router.
I have 2 more computers connected to the switch.

All computers can access the inet normally.
Each of the computers on the router can see and talk to the NAS.
The computers on the switch can see the NAS but when I try to connect to it, it is asking for a password.
The computers are a mix - 1=XP, 1=Vista, 2=W7. They are all configured as workgroup, no domain.
If I move a computer from the router to the switch it will also request a password to access the NAS.

If the NAS is on the switch then all will require a password. I have no clue why it is asking for a pw, or what pw it would like.

A switch is not configurable, correct? It is just suppose to connect everything. The computers on the switch get the IP from the router as do the ones on the router.

So what am I missing????????

thx
bill

The NAS still may require a password of some sort to keep unwanted people out of it. What model of NAS do you have?

Yikes! I am getting a popup on my igoogle homepage on my Windows Vista computer that ask for a username and password. It pops up 2-3 times a day. It states "The server 128.194.24410 at axview requires a username and password" and has fields to fill in. Windows security gives a warning that this is not secure.

Hi all,

Long time XP user and I just starting using Windows 7 beta. I really like it so far. Except there's a few things I can't figure out.

I'm trying to connect to my own Wifi Network and it has WEP encryption (I know I should use WPA but for now, let's say i'm stuck with WEP), Windows 7 keeps prompting me for a user name, password after I already entire my WEP key. WHY??? XP never asked me for that. I tried the admin password for my router, didn't work. What is with this new "User name, password" requirement?

Please help. It's really fustrating. The only way around it is to manually add network. There must be something I'm doing something wrong. Thanks in advance for your help.

dsharky; Welcome to Windows Seven Forums! Nice to meet you! And yes, I have known a few days of that kind of frustration also.

My first guess would be you have "Password Protected Sharing" turned on. Look at this screenshot of the "Advanced Sharing Settings" and compare with yours?




Post back if this doesn't solve your password issue?

Hello friends,

I am new here, I just received a new work computer that runs Windows 8. After connecting it to the network I had trouble with it being password protected and found help on this form post by Topgundcp. The new computer is now accessible from 3 of the other 4 (Win XP) computers but still locked for 1 computer. I can not figure out why or a solution, hopefully someone here knows the answer to this dilemma.

I have a Dell Inspirion B130 Laptop with a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card.
Windows XP

~No previous problems with this~

At home I have to use Dial-Up, because where I live DSL and Cable are not available yet.

I am a student at a local college, last semester I accessed their wireless service with no problem coming home and using my dial-up.

The other day I took my laptop to school, I connected to the service, but I could not access any sites, I kept getting the page error message.

So, I brought my LT home and connected to my dial-up, now I am unable to access any webpage that involves a password, I can get to the login page, but then I get the "cannot open page error".

I have reformatted, and it is still doing the same thing...

Any ideas?

And what setting do I need to change to access sites after I am connected to the wireless at school?

I did turn pop-up blocker, my firewall, cleaned my cookies and temp files, I am dumb-founded right now!

I know this is something simple!

TIA

Dell desktop, 32 bit VISTA. Machine was on for several months. After a recent shutdown, can't get PC to boot. BIOS process stops at point where it requests entry of system password. Owner has never entered a Password and has no records showing what it might be. The DELL supplied reinstall DVD is not being seen in the boot process. F2 and F12 keys do not override this and do not open the BIOS. Is there another way to enter the BIOS? I'd like to avoid reflashing the BIOS. Is the CMOS on a 2007 DELL desktop likely to have some manual method of returning the BIOS to its default settings? I don't yet have access to a bootable CD for VISTA. Will a bootable CD get by the password screen? If not I believe resetting the CMOS may be the solution.

I am operating on Windows 7 OS and am having difficulty with Outlook for Office 2010. It always asks for a password each time I sign on and when I open an email. For some reason it doesn't store my password.
 

A:Outook 2010 always requires password

That problem is by no means unique to Outlook 2010, it happens also on Outlook 2007 and on the version before that, and neither is it unique to Windows 7.

Try putting your POP3 server name and password into the "Credential Manager" in Control Panel. For good measure I entered my email credentials twice -- in "Windows Credentials" and in "Generic Credentials". I hardly see that pesky password prompt since doing that.

I just purchased a new Dell with Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 9 and have transferred the Microsoft Expressions Webs that I had under my old Dell Win XP.

When I try to publish websites with the Windows 7 version I receive a Windows Security pop up with the message Warning the server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner. If I enter the login & password in this pop up it continues to pop back up and nothing happens.

These publishing settings work with the XP so it's not a problem with the internet, but for some reason the Windows 7 is not allowing me to publish. I have looked at all windows security options, I have full control of everything and have not been able to find an answer.

Help is greatly appreciated.

i have 3 pc's on my lan

named pc1, pc2, and pc3, all in the same workgroup called HOMENET
all xp pro service pack 3.

--simple file sharing is disabled on all pc's
--file and print sharing is enabled in tcp/ip properties
--firewall ok too.
--every pc can ping all others
(double checked all machines)

Pc1 can open and see all shares on pc2
Pc2 can open and see all shares on pc1
Pc 3 can open and see all shares on pc1

However

Pc1 cannot open or see shares on pc3 (usr/password prompts)
Pc2 cannot open or see shares on pc3 (usr/password prompts)

Pc3 cannot open or see shares on pc2 (usr/password prompts) (but can on pc1 **whack!**)

The only share on pc3 was created on its desktop
I even added the everyone perm to the folder, and everyone to the ntfs permissions. still no go.

Anyways....

Ive never had problems with this before and have setup shares at least 100 times or more, nor have ever had to setup extra user accounts on each machine to get shares to work.

Ive always just shared it.... then everyone could see it and access it.

I know i Could remove the "everyone" group, and force someone to use a password yes.
but thats not the right solution here (for me).

Half of it works, and half of it dont. hmm
 

A:Solved: xp share requires password

oh well..

I re-enabled "simple file sharing" this solved the problem.

However.. it still does not explain why one of my computers was able to perform the same operation with simple file sharing disabled, even though the everyone group was added. (worked on one computer but not the other). and yes i double checked accounts and passwords.

It worked on one but not another. weird.

If you come across this post and you DO want to share with a password. just create another account on your machine, with a password, add the new account, create the share, add the user (to your share) in your folder share permisssions (click the add button and type in the name (it WILL find it), and finally have your user map to the folder with the "map network drive feature" (right click "my computer" > map network drive) > (pick any letter not already used) on the other machine and give them the user name and password of you new limited account and it will work. make sure they check the reconnect at login box, then they wont have to login every time.

Anyways... It works now.

Our family laptop (HP Pavillion g7, Windows 7) suddenly needs a password to log in. We did not have a password set for this computer. We were on it this weekend and it did not require a password. Can not log in safe mode. If this is a virus, how do we get rid of it?

A:Laptop suddenly requires password for log in

Is it possible someone who was accessing the computer this past weekend decided to put one on? It could be a virus that has instantiated a password. At this point, you have two options. One, you can use a DOS Boot CD and command line options to erase or reset the password. Two, you can do a repair install. I would go for the latter as that at least better guarantees that the virus will be gone, if one is on there.

So usually when I put my PC to sleep, I can just wake it up and be greeted with my desktop.
Now everytime I wake it up, it says my PC is locked and I have to enter my password to log in.

I gone into power management it says "Yes" to require password when login, however I will not let me change it.

The only thing that has changed is I upgraded my Home Premium copy to a professional copy.

Hi

This just started Monday morning. The night before everything was working properly. And at 9am Monday morning, I could no longer access hotmail, work Email via remote desktop, and most forums that require a login. It just hangs at "connecting," and then times out. Normal websites work fine. This was on my desktop.

I've got Norton and have uninstalled and reinstalled. I've tried to do a system restore and it won't let me do it. I've changed routers and also connected up to a laptop and it's the same with both.

I've contacted the service provider who have tried to change a few of my WAN settings with no luck. Can you help?

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share this new, and really simple, extension, Password Field.

This extension simply allows you to show and hide passwords fields in the webpages, and it is avalaible for Mozilla Firefox and Firefox-based browsers, but there are also other extensions like that avalaible for Chrome and Chrome-based browsers, for example: ShowPassword

LINK: Password Field

Thank you all for reading ​
 

A:Password Field extension

This is an excellent utility add-on! It is not always necessary for passwords to be invisible while they are being entered.

I would like to contribute to this thread, if I might, with the following related add-on: Password Exporter
Password Exporter is a nifty add-on which allows you to export the passwords and usernames which are saved in your Firefox browser, to .xml or .csv files. (NOTE: The add-on also allows you to obfuscate those files for extra security in storing your passwords)
You can keep the exported files as a backup and you can restore them at any time in any Firefox browser that has this same add-on installed.

Thanks for sharing this add-on, @Jo Man!

Everything was fine with his computer yesterday but he says he turned it off last night but kept the powercord plugged in. This morning, when he went to turn it on, his computer no longer required at password at startup, his background picture of his dog was no longer there and it was replaced with a tree. Also, his desktop icons are no longer there. I have zero idea about how to help this situation and I have no idea what happened. Can someone please advise?

A:Windows 10 no longer requires password at startup

Hello Erica, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Since this has just recently happened, you may be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before it happened to hopefully quickly undo and fix this.

I know Windows 10 is new and that we will all experience more or less serious bugs over the next months. For the most part Windows 10 really works well on my Iconia W510. I post this as a thread here to see if I am the only one who has to enter the system password on wakeup even though it is disabled? I have disabled require password on wakeup on the Power Options page and when I recheck, it is disabled. But, every time I wakey the PC up from sleep I still have to enter the system password. Compared to most of the other reported problems here and elsewhere with Windows 10, I know I should not complain But it is still annoying.

This morning, when he went to turn it on, his computer no longer required at password at startup, his background picture of his dog was no longer there and it was replaced with a tree. Also, his desktop icons are no longer there. I have zero idea about how to help this situation and I have no idea what happened. Can someone please advise?
Many many thanks,
Erica

A:Windows 10 no longer requires password at startup

Hello Erica, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Since this has just recently happened, you may be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before it happened to hopefully quickly undo and fix this.

I have a profile setup on my workstation on a domain.
It seems everytime I plug in a USB flash drive, it displays that the computer recongizes it with a little balloon tip in the bottom right hand corner. It then appears as if it is going to add the device, but right before you can access it - A dialog box comes up. It asks for the administrative password in order to add the device.

Does anyone know where this problem could be occuring?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi scogo, Welcome to TSG !!
What Operating System are you running ??
I assume the screensaver is coming on and needs a password to get back to desktop !!
Right click on the desktop, Properties, ScreenSaver.
Un check the box that says "Password Protected". Apply , then OK

Hi all,

Been using Win7 since beta. However, i just now installed it at work and this is the first time i'm using win7 joined to a domain. I assuming being joined to a domain is what's causing the problem. The problem being that each time the UAC prompt comes up, i dont just get a yes/no click, i have to enter in my username and password each time. And it's the same user/pass that i'm logged in with.

Is there any way to do away with the requirement of having to enter my user/pass each time? I dont mind so much just having to click yes or no, but constantly having to re-enter my login info is getting annoying.

A:UAC in domain requires username and password each time

I have not dealt with this, but,,, you may need to add yourself as an Admin to the local PC.

Since I have not done this in 7, maybe someone else can provide the way of doing it when joined to the domain.

However, are you a Domain User or Domain Admin?

Guys,

This seems like something I should know, but have forgotten. On some websites, depending on the browser that you use, you will see what I can describe as similar to a small microphone in the password field. I have seem it on Yahoo and Google. Is that a voice recognition symbol or something else? Some browsers have it and some don't. I recently used Microsoft Edge to log into Flickr Photos and saw the symbol. What is this thing?

Depends on the mouse, etc. How about some specs?

I hardly even need a password for my puter. My online passwords are high security, long and complex. I really do not want to type those in every time I start. I do have a much simpler one that I've been using for the laptop.

I've even selected to start without a password, but it still asks for my Live pw. I've also tried cancelling my Live account, but haven't been able to so far. I would hate to give up my Outlook email account, and might have to if I cancel live.

But something has to give. If I can't get a few of these pains taken care of, I'm slamming it in the can and going back to 7.

Hi

This just started this morning. Upon going to be last night everything was working properly. And at 9am this morning, I can no longer access hotmail, messengers, games, AIM, work Email, and most forums that require a login. It just hangs at "connecting," and then times out. Normal websites work fine.

Hi All,
We have a system with Smart card login. Some server under domain controller require a smart card login and some others do not require.
For the servers which do not require smart card login I can change domain user passwd by clicking ctrl+alt+del
For the servers which requires Smart card login when I try to change domain user password again it checks smart card and after that give an alert like smart card drivers are not installed for this operation.
I want to keep smart card login but I do not want it to require smart card login to change domain user password.
Do anyone know a way?
