Problem finding user id and password

Q: Problem finding user id and password

My niece's machine - generic ordered online.

Started a couple of days ago. Trying to open either IE or FF browsers were a very faint image - unable to access anything online. Thought of restoring an image using the Macrium boot disk, but the "boot" image on the screen lacked all restore information.
She called Verizon tech support and he told her the modem (FIOS is unavailabe) was bad and sent a router. I connected it, but got the same results.
Finally, I decided to try reinstalling Win7 - did not see the install disk . Disconnected the original C: drive and jumped another in its place - the disk began loading and all looked good until I to the page that asked for user name and password. She had misplaced the original info.
Calling verizon I got a "tech support", after having an hour trying to understand him and try his efforts to get the machine setup, I gave up.
My question; are ISPs required to give one his/her user id and password when requested? If not, the only alternative is to change ISPs.

Preferred Solution: Problem finding user id and password

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.)

A: Problem finding user id and password

I assume this PC works fine, other than that you can't get online with it?

Re Verizon support: you say "I gave up".

Why?

Was there a language barrier and you literally could not understand him due to his lack of English language skills?

Was he possibly competent in English, but could not explain how to pour water out of a boot?

Was he possibly competent in English and gave possibly accurate information, but you couldn't follow it for some reason? If so, what was that reason?

Or did he appear to be unwilling to provide instructions as if he feared you were unauthorized and trying to break into someone else's account?

Is your only problem the lack of user ID and password? That is, if you had them, would you know how to resolve your problem?

Is Verizon the only game in town?

More info needed.

My aunt has an old 1.2 GHertz computer with Windows XP installed. She only use it for email purposes, but she hasnt logged on in for ages. She forgot the login password. Is there anyway that I can reset it or manually change it?
 

A:Finding a User's Password

Is she the Administrator? If she isn't then does she remember the password when first setting it up? if she uses the Welcome Screen, when it loads press CTRL+ALT+DELETE twice in a row. then type Administrator for the user name and try the password, or there might not be a password set up for it. other than that there is no way to reset a password in XP, on mac you just put the install disk in.

My grandmother was recently hacked and she changed all her passwords herself (yay!). However she did not write down her new local user account password for her laptop.

I tried downloading OPHCrack, I burned it as an ISO file and put it on a DVD-R(only thing I had on hand) and i changed the boot order on her BIOS menu to had the DVD drive as the first priority. It does not run....I hear the disk drive moving, or spinning but the program does not run. Are there any other options or do I have to do a complete system restore to bypass this? Also if that is what I have to do how do I do that without being in her control panel?

Im comp savy enough to identify my problem im just unsure how to fix it. Here it is...

I run 2 machines 1 is an intel and the other an AMD, well call the Intel machine comp1 and the AMD machine comp2. Just recently my AMD board craped out (it was old, pretty sure one of the caps are blown but thats another problem).
There is stuff I had saved on comp2 that i want. comp2 required a password to log onto winxp pro. The stuff I want access too on comp2 was saved to a few different desktop folders.

I took the hard drive from comp2 and put it into comp1, also winxp pro. To access the files i want i open my computer, select the HD from comp2, clicky documents and settings, Select the user(which was pass word protected) and bam get hit with access is denied.

The problem I believe is since that user name is passworded I can not access it from the current OS im booted on. Since comp1 and comp2 are totally different I cant simply boot comp2's OS and copy the files over, also since comp2's OS isnt bootable I cannot simply switch users while being logged onto comp1's OS.

I dont have the time to fix comp2's mobo atm nor do I have the money to purchase another one. My best guess is to open comp2's HD, go to the windows folder>system32 and try and set up that user to not need a password or to allow guests to change the files. I have only had time to just begin playing with it since I am busy with a new job. Any Ideas or quick directions would be great

Hi. As if everybody else's password problems weren't bad enough...

My XP got badly currupted, so I moved the hard drive to a healthy computer so I could save my documents before rebuilding. The problem is that the user account folders, containing everything I want to save, are locked, and I can't get a prompt for the passwords (I know them) because this is now an E drive and the OS on it isn't doing anything.

Thank you for any help you might be able to give!

Hi, I've been experiencing some problems with trying to assign a password to my accounts. I have been googeling for a while now, but I haven't found a solution yet. And it's quite a strange issue, so here's my story:

A while ago my laptop screen was broken, so I had to send it in for repair. That took a pretty long time, and it had to be sent back twice because of bad repairs. Anyways, when I got it back, there was no more password on my users (I have 2 users, both administrators, guest account disabled). I am 100% certain however, that there were passwords on them before I had the screen repaired. The shop I returned it to hadn't repaired it themselves, but had sent it to a supplier. The shop said that maybe they had to re´nstall it or something, which I found a bit strange because the only problem was with my screen, but I wasn't going to make a fuss out of it because it had taken long enough and everything seemed in order with my screen, and all my data etc seemed to be there, so everything seemed fine. Now, to the password issues. Whatever you type in on both accounts (nothing, the old password, anything at all), it will log in no problem at all.

First, I tried to put in a password while logged in on my own account. In the control panel, it appears that there would be no password, because when I try to set a password, there are only 2 spaces to put the "new password" and "confirm new password", but no space to put the o... Read more

My operating system is Windows XP, Home Edition. My problem is as follows: My daughter's user account is password protected and for some reason won't recognize the correct password. I have attempted, under her account and under the administrative account, to change the password and also delete it, but the attempted changes are ineffective. I tried making the changes under safe mode, but her account, for some reason, doesn't even appear when I go to User Accounts via the control panel. I considered just transferring her music and photos and setting up a new account. But, her photos are privacy protected so the account won't let me do that.

Hi folks, I have a T480, running 1.16 BIOS and an FDE enabled drive. If I set user+master password for FDE, then assuming I'm in BIOS setup, I can use master password to specify a new user password. That's great. However, I still need to the user FDE password to get into to BIOS setup in the first place. Even with a supervisor password set on the BIOS, the entry process is F1 > user FDE pass > supervisor pass. This seems to completely negate the benefit of having a master FDE password. Imagine user forgets their FDE password, or is hit by a bus, etc. Administrator should, in posession of master FDE password and supervisor password, be able to access BIOS and change user password. I have observed threads such as: - https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/BIOS-disc-user-password-lost-X270-ssd/m-p/379... and another thread (cannot find it now) that advises pulling the drive in order to only need the supervisor password to access setup. I don't quite understand this interaction. From my perspective, something broken about the password management. Has anybody encountered any solutions for the above scenario?

Hello,
it's weird but I can't change the password of a domain user when I'm logged on a domain pc with Windows 8.

I'm sure that the password mets the requirements (I also tested here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security/pc-security/password-checker.aspx ), in fact if I change it from a domain controller I can do it without any problem.

But if I try to set the same on Win 8 I can't, the system tell me that the password doesn't meet the minimum requirements.

Today, there were numerous short power outages in my area.  About 7 over 20 minute period.  Tried to start windows 7 pro and would not start.  Automatic diagnostics could not fix the issue.  I declined system restore and did hard reboot instead. 
 
Windows 7 pro loaded but asked me for a password.  I did not have a password set up.  Before, when promoted for a password to perform changes, the screen would display my user name (Dell T7500) and a blank password field. Pressing enter with that blank password field allowed for changes as administrator.
 
I don't think that I had to enter user name and password to get in after Windows loaded before.  Now I do.  Again, no password was set for the only user.  I am now presented with a user login screen for user Dell T7500.  Now when I hit enter with a blank password field I get message that says user or password incorrect.  No other user is set up and no password should be required for user Dell T7500.
 
Perhaps the auto startup diagnostics routine and the subsequent windows diagnostics caused this issue.
 
I hate to take the thing apart and cancel bios/cmos passwords by taking out the module and not sure that is what is needed.  I think I need password help at the OS level.  Help!

To make the matter worse, it almost always bring dialog about waiting for some applications more time or cancel shut down attempt.

For security reasons, Microsoft does not allow parents (computer administrators) to check on, maintain, adjust or otherwise enter their kids' (limited users) XP profiles without either resetting their passwords or waiting for them to come home and being confrontational about it.

Ideally I would like to be able to log on to a limited user account from my administrator account without tampering with anyone's passwords-resetting them or otherwise. Actually, I have little interest in the (step) kids' personal life and stuff. Alternately, perhaps you may help me with my ultimate goal: limiting screensaver activity:

My arrogant and belligerant teenage stepson likes to customize the family room to his tastes rather that leave it to the generic unbiased interest of the family in general. Latest, he has designed his "my pictures" screensaver somehow to override cmos settings to illustrate various pictures of himself for unlimited time rather than allow cmos or windows to shut off the monitor after periods of inactivity. Typically he would prefer to be confrontational about it, fight and argue over the issue stressing out his depressed mom in the process; I do not want to fight-I just want my monitor to go off after a while of non-use and not be kept on by XP. Sorry about all the disfunctional family issues I had to mention for background. It is hard dealing with an aggressive controlling kid. Obviously most of the time the computer is left on his profile but... Read more

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.

Hi all,

We are having a real issue with local profiles / user profile service on our domain.
Our staff accounts are using local profiles. When a staff member changes their password something is happening to their profiles on the machines that their local profile is stored. When they try to login the machine is getting stuck at "Please wait for
the user profile service....". It never continues, we have left for 30 mins or more and it doesn't continue.

We are currently having to use delprof2 to remove their profiles from ALL machines they have previously logged into which is a lot of hassle. 

We first noticed this issue when we upgraded our workstations from windows 7 to windows 8. 
I was hoping that upgrading to windows 8.1 would fix the issue but sadly it doesn't. This is causing us major hassle on our domain.

It only affects people with local profiles... our students use mandatory profiles and they are not affected.

Our DCs are 2012 R2. 

I have trawled google but cannot find any information on this. At our yearly microsoft meeting i asked our regional account manager and he couldn't believe the issue. He had never heard anything like this before.

From the event log, the only thing i can see is that it is not finishing the load of the user profile.

Humble apologies if question asked/answered before.

Running Win 7 64bit all updates etc, anyway have never used passwords (sole user ), so booted up computer this morning and woila there it was, wanting "user name" & "Password", never been set up for one so how can I input something that wasn't set up, a bloody nuisance, that's why I love computers, just when you get complacent, it throws a spanner in the works, your thoughts as always most appreciated.

A:Sole user never had a User Name or Password!

Hello Peter,

Since it's wanting you to enter both your user name and password instead of just password, then you might see if using step 2 and 8 in Option One of the tutorial below may help with this. Log On with User Name and Password
Afterwards, if it's still not automatically logging into your account at startup, then the tutorial below can sort that for you. Since you do not have a password, you would just leave the password fields empty. Log On Automatically at Startup
Hope this helps.

I have a user who has this issue: laptop computer running win7 connected to the corporate network. Using active directory. User account is in AD. The user types in username/password.
Gets the message ?user name or password is incorrect?. User can attempt 5 or 6 times, gets the same message. User is absolutely sure he is using correct credentials. (I have his creds and have done it myself). Can reboot the computer and it may then allow
him to login. Or he may get the same message. User can go to a different computer in the office. Same results. Or, this different computer may let him login multiple times, but will ultimately get the same results. I have tried on newly imaged computer with
the same results. We have checked and he is not logged into any other device anywhere. (he has an iPad with company e-mail) and what is somewhat odd (well, other than the whole event) is he is able to get his company e-mail on the iPad, no problem.

Any suggestions?

I created a task that would open up myspace every morning of everyday.
It works properly and everything is fine on that aspect.
I have grown tired of it, and would like to delete it.
The problem is... I cant find it anywhere...
Vista's task library does not display my user created task, nor does it display in any of the pre-defined task folders already inside Vista's library..

SOME HELP TSG??
 

A:Finding User Created Tasks "Vista Task manager"

You don't want the Task Manager, you want the Task Scheduler.

I have an E-machine 733I which I have not used in awhile. Tried to log on (log on to windows with user name bar first line and password line on second bar) comes up saying, The system could not log you on. I've tried every password I could think of upwards and downwards. Nothing. I have reboot discs but i can't use if operating system is not running to any commands. Please help.

A:User name and Password

You can find the utility [Mod Edit: link removed] very useful. Once run you can see the accounts on your computer and reset thier passwords. You need a jump drive, floppy disk or a cd to boot from.
