XP Log In password request

Q: XP Log In password request

Just upgraded from W2K to XP. In W2K I managed to get rid of the password request so that the system could bootup in my absence. In XP setup, I declined a password, but the request comes up, and the system won't boot until press Return/Enter key. Any ideas about getting rid of the request entirely?
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.)

I am running Vista home premium SP 2 and use outlook 2003, SP3 with 2 profiles. I have been using this for the last 6 months. Every 2 to 3 months outlook gets really sluggish after you have opened 4 to 6 items sequentialy. If outlook is closed and re-opened, it is fine for another 4 to 6 items.
I found a help item which suggested resetting outlook to original settings in the help "detect & repair" which worked fine and I could reimport the original .pst files.
However, the last time I did this, the .pst file requested a password although I have never used one.
I now cannot access any of my old e-mails or contacts which I normaly import using the outlook facility, but is now stopped for needing a password.
I have tried the e-mail setup password that I use but this does not work.
Any idea's would be welcome!!!

As you just joined and were required to read the rules when doing so it should be fresh in your mind that we have a rule against helping with issues regarding passwords. Please see here for a copy of the rules: http://www.techguy.org/rules.html

One thing I can say is that when you create a new PST file it asks if you want to set a password, you must have chosen to do so last time; that step can be skipped if you want to avoid this in the future.

Also, for future reference you posted in the wrong section. Web and Email would have been more appropriate for an email program question as opposed to Networking. I'll move this post there but the same rule applies so I must close the thread.

I set everything up, but as you can see on these images I uploaded, it keeps asking me to update my password (which I already tried on several windows) and it just keeps saying for me to wait a few minutes, despite already waiting hours for it to sync.

I have just purchased my first win7 system and I am trying to connect it to a hardwired network with 8 other XP Pro SP3 systems. My problem is that the win7 machine sees all of the XP machines and I can go to each one and transfer files. The XP machines see the Win7 machine but I cannot connect to it, it keeps asking for a password. All systems are using Administrator rights. Any idea where this password comes from? I have tried everything.

A:Password request from Win7

You need to disable simple file sharing on the XP machines. Also check under the Advanced Sharing options in Win 7 and make sure that password protected sharing is turned off on both the Work/Home page and the public file sharing page. Don't forget to add "Everyone" to the sharing permissions on the Windows 7 machine.

After going through all of that if you are still having file access problems try doing this registry adjustment on the Win 7 machine with the problem.

Solution is really easy just modify one key in registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
create or modify 32-bit DWORD: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
set the value to: 1

You can also try the following procedure on the XP machine.
Goto... Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options

Scroll down to... Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts

Select... Guest only and not Classic. I checked on XP machine and Guest seems to be the default.

Suddenly those silly promps for user name and password go away when accessing Win 7 share from XP machine and it behaves more like XP file sharing without asking for Usernames and Passwords.

It will not cause security risk (except all users on same network can access shared files).

However when i start windows and try to access shared folders right away, it gives me the message that the path was not found. Only a while after that it gives me the access.
If i try to do the same thing but with the notebook what has windows 7 installed it asks me for a password and username as expected and everything goes well.

My computer crashed and I had to restore my O/S. Since then when I boot my computer every morning, I don't get my usual login prompt. I'm the only user, but I still prefer to log in after a cold boot. I did NOT choose to forego the request for password. I just checked UAC options to be sure.

BTW after restoring Vista, I turned off UAC because I remember hearing years ago that it causes problems. [I don't know if that's still true.] But then I decided to turn it back on a day or two later. It was after I turned UAC back on that I stopped getting a login prompt.

Sounds like someone is trying to get your password and account info?
When you want to get account info, you get an e-mail to the accounts registered e-mail adress. But since the account is registrated to your e-mail adress, they can't simply get it that way. And that is a good thing.

A:Password request when sending email

Authentication issue I guess - have you changed your network password recently or using a different PC that has cached passwords? It may be trying to autheticate you with the old password (or a cached password) and failing therefore asking for your password, which when given correctly allows you to carry on. Log-off... log-on usually solves if it is a changed password related issue.

A:Hide/Remove UAC Admin Password Request

Hello JBN,

When you are logged into a standard user account, then this is normal to get a UAC prompt whenever you try to run or do anything that requires the elevated rights of an administrator. A standard user must enter an administrator's password first.

Other than being logged into a normal administrator account (not built-in Admin) to not have to enter a password, you could use the tutorial below create an elevated shortcut in your built-in Admin account that the standard account can use and not get a UAC prompt at all.

When logging in with a user account, I get a request for the administrator password every time (which I deny).
Sadly, I can't make a screenshot, but the info is something like this:

---
Program name - File Operation
Verified publisher - Microsoft Windows
File origin - Hard drive on this PC

Certificate information:
Certificate purpose : windows hardware driver verification
Issued by : Microsoft Windows Verification PCA
---

Is this ok to allow? It looks legitimate, but I'm in doubt because
- I think it appeared 1st time while browsing
- I don't see where any hardware change might have come from, except maybe plugging in a phone in the USB

Thanks

A:Unexpected request for admin password on login

krek, welcome to Sevenforums!

First, make sure all windows updates are installed. This ensures the certificate is actually from microsoft. More than likely, it is a driver trying to be installed for a device, such as the phone you installed. If you are worried, do a full scan with your updated antivirus program. You can check this by unplugging all devices from your computer except for mouse and keyboard and see if it still pops up. But make sure your mouse and keyboard drivers are installed, as it might be for them. You can automatically get device drivers from windows (safe): Device Installation Settings - created by Brink

As of late , after awaking from sleep mode, the Action Center is requesting me
to re-enter my password. I am clueless as to why this is happening.

The only change is that I cancelled my MS Office 365 [P6] subscription.

Maybe the unlinking? of [[email protected]] from [[email protected]]
is causing this behavior. Dunno?

I had used the onmicrosoft as my Win8 login account and had a few problems with that.
So I deleted that 'user' and created a new one with the .live email.

But that was more than a year ago. It's not the end of the world or anything, just a
bit annoying and worrisome that it may be a 'bogus' pop-up in Action Center.

TIA for any help.

A:Password request frequency is slightly alarming

In action center, go to change action center settings and in security messages uncheck Microsoft account. Also if you haven't already done so, go into user accounts in your control panel, click on make changes to my account in PC settings and you can disable requiring a password when waking your PC.

They have all worked with the shared disk, lets call it \\c1a\Myfile mounted on the remote machines O: drive, all have worked perfectly for many years, until this week !! Monday or Tuesday, all of a sudden two win7 machines, when trying to mount the shared disk, come up with "Enter network password", while a third win7 machine mounts it fine.

There is no "network password", the old win2k platform did not have any network password. The only clue so far is that if one goes into the win7 system under the adapter, and "Client for Microsoft Networks" is clicked, the error happens, if not clicked, no error happens (and it never connects either..). A third win7 machine, works fine (so far...) I've gone so far as to do a complete system restore, and as soon as the network is activated, the error occurs. (I've turned off the automatic updates for now...)

Help, I'm at my wit's end on this !! Anybody have a solution ?
 

A:Solved: Some win 7 machines suddenly request "Network Password"

Thanks to Kevin for the fix!!!

Home Premium does not have the local security policy manager, so you need to do it through your regedit command.

I just did this and got it to work and I would consider myself a novice at this stuff.

So here is the regedit way: Click Start - type in regedit at the search prompt - open regedit. For safety, make a copy first!!

Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then SYSTEM then CurrentControlSet then Control then LSA.

On the right half there should be a bunch of names and types.

You need to add a new DWORD to the list so anywhere in the right half right click and hover over
"new" and select DWORD (mine said DWORD 32-bit value).

Cut and paste this in the name of the new DWORD you are adding without the quotes "LmCompatibilityLevel".

Now if you look under the column Data it should read 0x00000001 (0). This needs to be 0x00000001 (1).

To change the 0 to a 1, right click on the LmCompatibilityLevel name you just added and select Modify.
Change the Value data: from 0 to 1.

My Base was checked as Hexadecimal. Click OK. Close out of the Regedit.

Reboot your machine and whalla, it should work. I saw a couple of other threads that recommended changing
the value to 2, but 1 worked for me.

This is the fix that worked, a single entry in the Registry !! "
