Domain Password Generator extension

Q: Domain Password Generator extension

Hi everyone,

today I want to share with you this useful extension, which allows you to generate passwords from website's domain and master passphrase.

Original description:

This firefox extension allows you to generate site-specific password from a single master password. This avoids the hassle of remembering a unique password for each website you sign up to.

We all have dozens (or even hundreds) of website accounts we have to remember. We are then tempted to reuse the same password for several websites. If one of them is hacked or malevolent, you risk exposing your other accounts.

It mixes together your personal master password and the website domain using a little cryptographic magic we call SHA-1. It will always get the same result if given that domain name and master password, but will never get that result if either changes. (Well, once in a few billion times it might.)Click to expand...

This extension is avalaible for Mozilla Firefox and Firefox-based browsers.

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 thought of this idea that there should be a downloadable program to generate and remember unique passwords to every site you visit that requires a password.Everyone knows that it is dangerous to have a same password for every site you use that requires a password.However, it is very inconvient to have to create a different uniqure password for every site you ever visit that requires one. It would be near impossible to accuraetly and safely store such passwords.Does anyone know of a program that you can download that will safely generate unique passwords and apply them to any and all sites you may visit?EDIT: Moved to more appropriate forum - MG

I just deployed LAPS out to all out windows 7 computers and it has been great, but there has been a slight issue with the passwords it generates. The technicians have been getting confused when similar characters are being used, such as upper case I and
lowercase l, or O' and 0 which has caused them to occasionally lockout the local admin account and have to wait 30 minutes before they can try to login again. Does anyone know if it is possible to remove select characters from the password generator so that
it cannot use these similar characters?

Thanks in advance
Or another thought, is it possible to change the font to another one that better distinguishes these similar characters?

We have a remote user using windows 7 pro 32 bit and  cisco vpn on his laptop.
The remote user is prompted to change his password while he is connected to the domain during the vpn session.  He follows the prompts to the change the password.
When he performs the following Ctlr+Alt+Del, selects lock, and now tries to unlocks the laptop with the new password he  receives the message of 
?The trust relationship  between this workstation and the primary domain failed?
In order to get into the laptop   the remote user restarts the laptop and uses the old password with his domain username.
Even though he is vpn into the network  the remote user  is unable to gain access to any network resources since domain password was changed.
VPN password and domain password are different.  The Cisco VPN username/password account is keep on the ASA.  The domain username/password is keep on a Microsoft server. 

Does anybody know how to get the changed domain password onto the laptop while VPN?

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!

I have this strange problem I don't know how to solve:

I've forgotten my password (I haven't used the account for months)
The password/account is a domain account but the computer is not currently connected to the network/domain (and there's no chance of doing so for a long while).

I know XP caches the domain account password somewhere on the local machine because you can usually login to that profile even if you're not connected to the domain but as long as you have the right domain selected at the login screen.

Fortunately, I remember the (local) Administrator password so I have full access to the system but don't know how to retrieve the password for the other account!

any ideas? Would much appreciate any help. cheers!

How do I find out what the login and password are?


Do you mean that IE is automatically redirected to the webpage and inform you to type a name\password which you don't know? Are you able to connect to other webpages? Please check whether the internet connection is fine. Some ISP might inform you to enter
an credential if you want to gain internet connection via IE.
If the webpage is not set by ISP and you even don't know why it occurs, then I would recommend you run a virus scan in case malware\virus infection.
Or open IE, check the homepage, please also check IE proxy setting under internet option\Connections\LAN settings.
Or Lanch IE in no add-ons mode, check the result, run iexplore.exe -extoff
to launch IE in no add-ons mode.

Hello All,

I have recently switched my network from a workgroup to a Win2K domain. I have a Win2K server and Win98 clients. All but one of my Win98 clients are logging into the domain with no issues. I have adequate licencsing on my server for all of my workstations. With that one individual workstation, I am receiving the message:

No domain server was available to validate your password. You may not be able to gain access to some network resources.

I am able to ping the server, and I my drive mappings are coming up right away if I "enter through". I have not had any issues gaining access to the server from this station. It simply will not validate the password.

Note: I have the password set as blank.

I have done the following up to this point, and it is after doing all of this that I am lost:

-confirm protocols are bound correctly to adapters
-uninstall - reinstall TCP/IP
-confirmed NetBEUI is loaded
-uninstall/reinstalled the DSClient for Win2K (from the Win2K server cd)
-deleted/recreated user account
-restarted between almost every task.

If anyone has an idea on how I can get this last workstation to log on successfully to the domain (validate password), I am open to any suggestions/questions/comments. I am stuck, folks.
Please help!

A:How To Change VNC Admin Password For All PC's In AD Domain

You can set the default password in TightVNC as part of the package deployment. Therefore, have you considered doing this and then pushing out the updated version via a GPO? That's one way to do it in a domain environment. Within our organisation, we use PDQ Deploy. While we use the Enterprise version, the Free version will, I believe, integrate with Active Directory (AD) for pushing out packages. That way, you can create a package for distribution, set the password, and then push out the updates via AD.

i was given a computer xp pro (sp3) that was part of a domain. i do not have access to the domain but i have the administrator password so i'm able to login to the computer. i made the mistake of removing a previous computer without the password.

i think i need to add an user with administrator privileges before changing to my workgroup at home? if so, that would be
1. My computer/manage
2. Local users and groups
3. add a user
4. make that user a member of Administrators

then when i change from the domain to a workgroup i'll be able to login? anything else i need to do?

If any computer policies were applied, you'll be stuck with those regardless of what account you use. It's always best to do a clean install in this kind of situation. Otherwise you'll likely be fighting with one problem after another.

I left my computer on today while doing other things. When I started to work with it in the evening, I discovered it was "hung up." So, I rebooted it but it took a long time to come up and when it did it was asking me to log on. I have not been using a password or having the logon screen before. Although I do not remember ever creating a password, I tried to log on using many of the possible passwords that I might use. None worked and each time I received the error message that the domain "my desktop" was not available. Then I tried loging on as the administrator with the same problem. I don't know whats going on as I did not put in a password. I suspect some file is corrupt but I don't know where to look and besides I can't get access to my machine even with safe boot or at the command prompt. I have a laptop and another desktop connected to this computer via a home network and the network is working fine. I have wasted hours on it and it really irritates me. I went to the microsoft site but couldn't come up with any problems that were the same as mine. I did see a similar item in this forum but it was for SP1 and I am using SP2. Do I need to re-install or repair windows? Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

I have checked the "share level access control", log on to windows nt domain" and logon and restore places. I have also checked netbui as default.

Is there any possibility to prevent the expiration of domain user password on sundays?


A:Prevent domain password expiration in sundays

Normally the domain admin sets the change password expiration #of days, It also gives you something like
notifying you a few days in advance.

The Admins control that thru their security policy. I don't believe that it can be controlled to prevent expiration
on sunday but you do get a few days notice of expiration of passwords.

So, I get a call that this domain username is giving invalid password. Of course, like any other tech, I assume that the user is putting in the password wrong, so I get into the remote access for the computer. I put in the password. No dice.

I log into another computer in the same area, log in with the username and password, logs in without issue. Go back to the offender and log in with an admin domain account, no issue. So, now, I've blown out everything related to this user account, removed and readded it to the valid user list, nuked and deleted the user profile by deleting from profile list, physically deleting the profile, and making sure that the profile wasn't in the registry. Still no dice. I even tried removing and readding to the domain just to say I did it. Any thoughts?

My wife's company recently moved to Windows 7 Professional. One issue that I'm currently having is that when her laptop is locked, we cannot unlock it. I assume this is because it is at home and not attached to the domain. However, it was not attached to the domain when we logged into it, was never on the domain while it was logged into, and was not on the domain when it locked. We type the correct password in, but it keeps saying "the user name or password is incorrect". There is no red button in the bottom right corner to allow for restarting the computer or shutting it down when it is locked. The only way to restart the machine is to hold down the power button and force it off, then it wants to check the disks when it comes back on. After forcefully restarting it, we are able to log on using the password even though we are not connected to the domain. It works OK if she logs off when she's through using it (logon works, unlocking doesn't), but if she locks it, hibernates, puts it into standby, or leaves it unattended too long, we're up the creek. The only options on the lock screen are EASE OF ACCESS and OTHER CREDENTIALS. Clicking OTHER CREDENTIALS shows her locked account and INSERT A SMART CARD. Why will it not unlock with the correct password, but it will accept the password for the initial login? Setting it to not require a password when it wakes up probably isn't feasible in her workplace. TIA

A:Win 7 Will Not Unlock With Correct Password When Not Connected To Domain

Sounds like this policy is enabled:
Interactive logon: Require Domain Controller authentication to unlock workstation.

This can be disabled, it will still require a password, but will allow it to use cached credentials, same as logging in after rebooting.

Click Start, type secpol.msc, press Enter
Navigate to Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options
See if you can change that policy to disabled. If this is set by a Domain Group Policy, then that policy will need to be changed by the company. They may need to create a separate OU for people who take PCs home to do work, then they can still keep that policy for computers in the office.

Also sounds like this policy is disabled, which would explain why the shutdown option isn't present from the Lock screen:
Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on

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?

I have only Windows 7 machines in Server 2012 domain (Server 2008 R2 functional level). Everything is working fine except when a user changes his/her domain password from Windows 7 machine- it takes a long time ~5 minutes or more to successfully change the
password but changing a users domain password from the DC (2012) works instantly.

I hope I posted this in the right forum category.
Thanks in advance.

Please check if there are some related errors in your Event Viewer. Also, check the error on your DC side.

So we have 1 system that the default domain admin account will not allow us to log into the system. It says bad username or password. We have specified the domain (domain\administrator) no change. The password is correct and you can even right-click run
as and have full admin access. The local account is disabled and renamed. We have attempted to log in it says the account is disabled but it is not disabled. Single 2008 SBS controller.  Resetting is not an option at this point. We are just curious as
to why this is happening on just this one system.
