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.)

Hey everyone! Quick question, should be easy for those of you that know a lot about AD. I know that you can set password complexity but any documentation that I have found only states that you can set to be a minimum of 6 characters and only requiring 1 capital letter, one lowercase letter etc... etc... I need to know if there is a way to set password complexity to meet the following requirments.

Min 10 Characters
2 Capital Letters
2 Lowercase letters
2 Numbers
2 special Characters

We are currently trying to set u p Sun Java Enterprise System 5 for user authentication but it's a pain to set up and doesn't work the way it should. AD would be so much easier. Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
I'm not sure if in the right place for this, i'm part of a large network infrastructure and we use Active Directory to manage our users. I am looking to create a web-based tool where users can go and reset their own network signon passwords.

Does anyone here use this function?
Keep in mind I am not a programmer or web design specialist, I was given this as a research project from my boss to work on.

We have some users that work from home and their PC's are on the domain network maybe twice a year, however they VPN to work daily.
When these users do come to the office to use another PC AD rightfully force them to change Password, when they get back to the PC they have at home this password is not accepted and they have to use old password to login to PC at home.
This create discrepancy between current AD password and the domain joint PC at home that haven't been on work lan for ages.

A:Password complexity

Hi and welcome to the Ten Forums!

You will need to explain a little more about what you are trying to do. Are you logging in with a local account?

Basically you have set a password as empty and this is not secure! A Microsoft account has to have a password but you can remove one for a local account. See the following tutorial for more details:

I have the Local security policy settings with complexity disabled but when I try to set up a new account I still get the guff about requiring 8+ chars, upper case and numbers. How can I get this removed please. Pieter

A:Password Complexity

Hello Bruegel,

The Local Security Policy password requirements are only applied to a local account, and not a Microsoft account.

Microsoft accounts require that passwords must have at least 8 characters, but up to 16 characters, and contain at least two of the following: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. This password complexity requirement is enforced by Microsoft to help make your password more secure.

I have a rather odd issue with Users manually changing their passwords. My default domain policy is set for complexity, 10 characters, change every 180 days, minimum password change 7 days, history enforced. The policy works perfectly unless a user wishes
to manually change the password when they do they receive an error claiming the password doesn't meet complexity.
I have confirmed the passwords do meet all requirements and if I set the "change password at next logon" flag that same password that is rejected during a manual change is now excepted when the user is forced to change. I have confirmed this with
the same complex password once on manual change (fails) and once with the change password flag set (success).
Before we get into quick answers:
Yes, this password policy is set in the default domain policy.
Yes, synchronization works correctly, in fact, the policy works correctly when allowed to run automatically. This is only an issue when users try to change their passwords manually.
No, simply setting the Change password flag is not an option as it breaks Dirsync which is in use for O365 accounts.

I have a Windows 2003 Active Directory domain and am trying to increase the password complexity requirements.

However, it seems as though the password complexity requirements are an all or nothing setting. Either I can choose to have no password complexity enforced or users must use 3 out of the 4 character types which is actually pretty difficult to think up, remember and not write down etc.

Is there a way that I can enforce password creation of passwords that meet 2 out of 4 of the character types? (ie any 2 out of the 4 of lowercase, uppercase, numbers and symbols)

Here is the Definition of this policy:
Password must meet complexity requirements

This security setting determines whether passwords must meet complexity requirements.

If this policy is enabled, passwords must meet the following minimum requirements:

Not contain the user's account name or parts of the user's full name that exceed two consecutive characters
Be at least six characters in length
Contain characters from three of the following four categories:
English uppercase characters (A through Z)
English lowercase characters (a through z)
Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)
Complexity requirements are enforced when passwords are changed or created.

Hi,

I'm using Win7 Ultimate with service pack and in the process of installing World Ship 16 we encounter error 26. Upon calling UPS for tech assistance they are telling me that the error is cause by the Password Complexity settings in Win7.

So I searched online and found in Microsoft that by searching for secpol.msc I can change the settings on my computer. However, I can't. I can see the menu, enter the properties, see the options, but they are grayed out. I repeated the process and made sure I access this as an admin to no avail.

I also tried this on my Win8 professional computer... same problem. So I figure, since they are on my network I need to change the settings on my server. So I access the settings only to see they where "Not Defined", regardless I changed the Password Complexity to Disable, and ran the cmd command gpupdate... Nothing!

Can you tell me what I've done wrong? Did I miss something? or is there a better way to do this?

Hi
In A domain environment when i rest a user password from active directory users and computers he is unable to login to Windows with new password. He is configured to login through wifi And we are using single sign on in the wifi settings. This issue is only affecting few users. connection to company wifi network is authenticated through 802.1x. so we manualy create a wifi profile for 802.1x .


At the dual login screen the new credentials (we are using active directory credentials for wifi since it's 802.1x) are entered. First it spits an error that unable to connect to wifi. Then windows spits an error of invalid user name or password.

If we enter the old credentials at login in both wifi access and windows access we are able to login to Windows (it logs in with Cached credentials) but I it obviously is unable to connect to wifi network.

The user is a member of wifi group so he has access to wifi and he can access wifi through his iPhone.


Also another observation is that if I login with his Cached credentials and configure a wifi profile /connection using his new (reseted password) password windows spits an error that cannot connect to the network.

So the core issue is that after reseting his password from active directory users and computers he cannot connect to wifi through windows.

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

Hi,
My Dad received an email from 'Facebook' through outlook express that had a zip file attached called Facebook_password_4891.zip, which he unfortunately opened. He said that nothing happened, so he double clicked on it again, and then when nothing happened again, he realised he'd probably done something stupid.

I have since deleted the email with the attachment, and scanned using AVG and Spy bot, but neither have turned up anything with that name. I'm still scared that its in our computer though, as I googled it and the websites I went on said that it was a bad trojan/key logger.

We use google chrome as our internet browser- not sure if that helps or not :-)

Well, I own a D-Link DIR-615 Router, And I forgot my router log-in, AND Wi-Fi Passwords. I went on a trip somewhere, and my computer was reset when I left with it. (Still have PC connected though.) And I just CANNOT reset the thing. I tried default etc etc. But I need to find a way... =\ I still have one Vista computer working with it, But the password comes out to: ***** or dots. (its hidden) Is there a way to show them?

Also, Is there a way to change your MAC adress?
 

A:Forgot Router log-in password/Wifi password, Cannot be Reset (As in; not going to)

As I think that you already know, the solution is to reset the router to factory defaults. When you reconfigure it tape the pertinent account/password/encryption key information to the bottom of the router.

Some ISPs track the MAC Address of the device connected to the modem. It is perfectly fine and easily done to clone the registered MAC address to the router's WAN to avoid having to call the ISP. There is no other need that I know of to change a MAC Address.

Hello,

I bought a laptop about a year ago. Shortly after buying it, we lost the password before making a backup disk. I couldn't change the password, we run Windows 7, without the old password. Luckily, or so we think, we have one of those laptops that has a fingerprint scanner so I have been able to log on using my fingerprint as a password. However, I can't believe that I am locked out of changing the passwords on this computer.

I have learned my lesson! Always back it up first! But for now, I need some help. I am also a little worried that I may have been hacked into. A friend said that if your password all of a sudden doesn't work, that is a sign of a hacker. That is what it felt like happened to me. I swear I thought I had the password right, then all of a sudden it stops working.

Thanks so much-Bill

Hello,
We are experiencing an interesting error for a number of devices throughout the estate.
All impacted devices are Win7 SP1 in domain A, and all users logging on to the devices exist in domain B.
Each time a user executes a password reset from the Windows Security/Logon interface (usually as a result of password policy prompts) the user is presented with a classic Trust relationship error that would normally indicate the device is no longer connected
to the domain. The error itself however seems to be a red herring.
Once the user clicks OK past the error, the user can continue as normal subsequent relogs can be done successfully with the new password set by the user and the device itself has not lost trust with the domain. My only explanation for this is that for some
reason the error is being generated by the DC on domain B after it successfully changes the users password to say "hold on, the device you're on isn't on my domain", but I'm unsure why this would have started occurring especially in a two-way forest
trust.
I'm a little stumped with this, all googling and searching through these forums seem to direct me to issues whereby the device itself does actually lose connection to the domain for various reasons, rather than just a misleading error.
I don't suppose anyone has ever come across anything similar before?

I have 2 problems with Outlook Express in XP that I never had in any other version of Windows. First of all, my password is saved to get on the net,just like in other versions. But, with XP, everytime I open OE, it prompts me to give the password again, even though the SAVE box is checked. I am the only user of this computer so it's unnecessary to have a password just for OE.

Also, OE frequently gives me a small popup box saying it has encountered a problem and must shut down. I write about 100 emails a day and this is getting really annoying. I have to save what I'm writing after each sentence so it will appear in DRAFTS after I turn on OE again ( and type my ^%&* password AGAIN).

Any suggestions as to how to disable this password feature would be appreciated. Also any theories on why OE shuts itself down so often? NOTE: you're talking to a real dummie here hahaha

Whenever trying to login to any account I get the following error "Could not logon to the domain because of an invalid password" Even creating new accounts with fresh passwords doesn't work. Anyone have any ideas? Too many people screwing with the server=things breaking.
 

A:Error message: Invalid password, could not login to the domain

Are you running XP or 2000?

I tried to logon to my computer after restarting a few days ago but for some reason my password isn't being recognised. I get a "The password is incorrect. Make sure you're using the password for your Microsoft account. You can always reset it at account.live.com/password/reset." error message.I've gone to reset my password via microsoft account live as per the message above (done a few days ago) BUT unfortunately, I still can't logon to my computer. I've got Windows 8.1 installed on my computer. I haven't been able to logon to my computer for 6 days now. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Hi, olar21,
How about your problem now? Is there any other local account in your system? If that it is, could you choose to switch to other account to logon system.
It's hard to identify the reason of this problem? For your current situation, you can try to use Recovery Disc to fix your current system for test. There is no any other effective method except this method.Roger Lu

Hello!


I bought a Toshiba T 135D laptop, and after a few days I worked with it, I changed something at users account and now it gives me this error "the user name or password is incorrect" at logon. I mention that I didn't introduced any password before.

Can you help me?

A:Sat T135D: "The user name or password is incorrect" error message at logon

> I changed something at users account
And how to help? Who knows what you have done there.

I can tell you that this is really bad situation now. Without right password you will not be able to start clean OS installation using HDD recovery procedure.

Afternoon,

Having recently (today) inherited my company's IT support role (Without any real training / qualifications ) I'm coming across a number of small issues, one of which is the following:

All machines at my company are independently managed by their own (local) Administrator account, across the board the Username and Pass to access the Admin account is the same... except for a single machine.

It seems this machine has a differing password to the other machines, unfortunately the previous administrator is no longer contactable, I however require access to the administrator account. To the best of my knowledge he didn't set-up a Password Reset Disk either.

I've read about various 3rd party tools which can enable the resetting of the Administrator Password but am loathe to try them without first hand confirmation of their validity etc (On my head be it and so forth)

Is there any method to determine what the Admin pass may be, or should I plump for a 3rd party tool to aid in the resetting of the pass? If so, does anyone have any suggestions for which to use?

If it makes any difference, the machines are networked to a Mac Xserve server - though as I understand it, I wont be able to access locally stored passwords through the server itself?

Many thanks for any light that can be shed upon this issue

Mike
