XP, please stop asking for a password

Q: XP, please stop asking for a password

I did it. In Windows XP, when I couldn't connect to the Net, I went into Network Connections and fussed around with the two Local Area Connections that I have, and now every time I boot up my computer it asks for a password. Even though I have always left it blank, it still asks for a password every time. What do I check or uncheck to get it to stop asking for a password?

Preferred Solution: XP, please stop asking for a 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.)

I have an older Gateway Performance 1300 desktop that I inherited. There is a password on it that has to be put in before it will even go to setup. I assume it is a computer password rather than an XP password (running XP Home SP3) but I can find no way to turn it off. In the setup, it says supervisor password uninstalled, user password installed, and below it has places to put in both passwords. I guess if it is the user password, I could change it, but I see no way to turn it off. No one else uses the computer and there is no need for this password, it is just an aggravation.

Any help on how to turn it off would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:How do I stop using a password

Do you have the owner/user manual?

You could also go here:


and enter the serial number on the back of the case. You may be able to download a manual there.

That model is over 10 years old, you may have difficulty finding support documentation.

The basic approach would be to reset the BIOS/CMOS jumper pin on the motherboard, IMO.

I have an account on a website that is quite important; it is a https site. It remembers my username and password, so I went to Internet options and deleted the history, passwords, cookies etc. I also edited the options to "don't remember passwords or data entered into forms etc" but the problem still persists. The people who manage that site told me it's not a problem of which they are aware either.

I would try a different web browser but neither chrome nor firefox seem to support all the functions of this site. If I am missing something obvious or if anyone has anything else worth trying please do let me know......thank you.

When the password window appears on startup, it immediately fills with dots and I cannot stop it. I cannot get into my system because I cannot prevent the dots. I have tried the following:

~ deleting the dots -- but they simply reappear
~ pressing enter (in hopes it would allow me to enter a password on the second time),
~ going in through safe mode (same problem exists)
~ go to 'last known good configuration'
~ using on screen keyboard
~ using an external keyboard
~ rebooting

This is on a Dell Pavillion dm4 laptop. Oh, and before this started, I was creating a new user account and the battery died. When I ran to get the cord, my child was pressing the numbers 1-9 repetitively. I did try to let it fill for a few minutes thinking it may just need to catch up, but that wasn't it. Something is wrong.

Can you disable the built-in keyboard via a shortcut? Most laptops have the feature... Then try the external lone again.

My question is whether using a password manager would prevent a keylogger from stealing passwords.

I thought that as a password manager pastes the passwords directly into your browser then it wouldn't give much chance for a keylogger to record keystrokes or copy things from the system memory.

Any thoughts about this ?

My strategy on windows was this;
Anti-Keylogger (for example: KeyScrambler or Zemana Antilogger) + Keepass with Secure Window + Two-Channel Auto-Type Obfuscation for every password.

But I just installed Windows 8 on this laptop.
And now I'm trying finish setting it up. But every time I want to install something or run some kind of administrative tool like Firewall it asks me for my password.
On any other account I've ever used I just get a pop up saying "This app wants to run." Then I click ok or cancel.
How do I make it like that instead of having to type my password every time?

I don't recommend this but if you really want to disable the password from the start menu type in secpol.msc. Expand account policies > password policies. Double click on minimum password length, enter 0, and then close. Open maximum password age and enter 0 and close both windows. From control panel open up user accounts. Click on your account and then select remove password. Type in your current password and then click on remove password.

XP Pro SP3 on DELL Dimension 4550
Ive been googling and for the most part see the same suggestion offered as a fix:

"right click desktop – properties – screen saver tab – power button – change monitor and hard drive turn off to the desired time period"

as well as this for the password issue:

"Log on to your computer as an administrator. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. - Click Performance and Maintenance. - Click Power Options. - Click Advanced tab. - Under “Options” section, uncheck the check box for Prompt for password when computer resume from standby opton."

ive seen this suggested over and over and have applied the steps in both my limited account and in the admin account. still keeps doing the same thing.
• I'd like to note that i saw one thing mentioned that i have not tried because i wasnt sure how to proceed.
i saw someone mention the power management settings in the BIOS. BUT when i entered the BIOS, i wasnt sure what might be safe to change / disable / etc.,etc...

When the password window appears on startup, it immediately fills with dots. I can remove them by backspacing then deleting. How do I stop it from happening?

A:How do I stop password window from filling up with dots?

Feels like your keyboard is malfunctioning.
That its in somekind of loop during bootup. Try with another keyboard.

Or do the super-duper solution. Reset your CMOS Its the big round battery on your mobo. Just jank that out, wait 5-10 sec, plug it back in.
That should erase any unwanted actions from the bootup.

If its a desktop, kinda hard to do that on a laptop. And if you havent done it before, use caution and google how to. Never start fiddeling in a open computercase if you havent done it before.

Will the hacker still get into the computer system, if I change the computer password to get into the computer, if a virus has already probably taken the login passwords for the emails and other accounts, and if so, will changing those passwords make those accounts safe, or will the virus already have a reset password program in it.

Do we keep our passwords on boot or sleep mode to prevent a hacker getting onto a network and then finding your mac address so as to access your machine?

Is that the only reason we have it?

(Also for the other reason that if you left your machine unattended or for privacy but my question is more for anti-hackers).

If the answer to the question is no then i might undo my one....

A:Does a windows password "stop hackers"

The password and MAC address are independent and unrelated.

If your PC is connected to a network (and the network card has power) your MAC address is available for functions like "wake on LAN".

Your password only "prevents" (reduces the chances of) unauthorized access to your user account.

I am trying to troubleshoot a computer on my work network. I read through many of the guides and forums concerning these issues but cannot seem to resolve. Will start at beginning.

One of the PCs won't boot in any mode, safe mode, restore system to previous state, or normally. It gives the following message : STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file):\systemroot\system32\config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate. From what I have been reading the way to solve this is to use an xp cd and run recovery console. Unfortunately I am at a small base in Afghanistan and don't have access to this cd.

I have found a few recovery console/boot disk isos that I burned onto cds but when I try to boot from one of these cds it goes to another BSOD which states STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF748E0BF, 0xF780A208, 0xF7809F08) pci.sys - Address F748G0BF base at F7487000, datestamp 3b7d855c.

I would very much like to get into the recovery console to at least try some of the steps I have read in the guides but have thus far had no luck. Does anyone have any information as to why I am getting the second error when I try to boot from CD? Or able to recommend any programs that might work?

Thanks in advance.

Everything was working fine afterwards until i shut my computer down and went to turn it on the next morning which is when i got the first blue screen.

I have searched the posts to make sure I was not double posting this and I am having trouble finding some kind of solution to my specific error code.

I want to say first off that I am a MAC user and although I am pretty proficient in PC and have had a lot of luck fixing PC issues I hope you all can bear with me.

So, I am trying to fix my GF's computer and hope to at least get somewhere tonight.... i'm talking about fixing the PC not.... anyways

There is nothing else mentioned. It did say something about stopping some BIOS stuff (shadowing..) and driver stuff too.

I read on here about checking a "dump" and running certain things, but as I stated before, I'll need a little guidance if it's no trouble.

Can anyone help me out? That would be really cool and we would appreciate it.

After installing Vista SP1 and after the restart I received a Stop Error 0x0000c1f5.
This stop error would not let me use the Recovery disk and would not let me boot into safe mode. This happen on a Sony Vaio notebook VGN-NR120E with Vista. I contact Sony and Microsoft with this issue. They all say that Windows 7 will fix this issue and wanted to know if I had a windows 7 DVD. Well if I did I would have not been talking to them at all I would have use the Windows 7 to try to fix the problem or just installed Windows 7. Lets say if your system is lock with a BSOD with this stop error 0x0000c1f5 you will find it very difficult to fix. But I did find a way. Microsoft and Sony were unable to help so this left me on my own. First I tried the program called System Rescue Cd to remove the corrupted $TxfLog file. This did remove the file but still had the stop error 0x0000c1f5. Then I tried Super FDISK. This was able to erase the HDD enough to remove the stop error 0x0000c1f5. Now I was able to use the Recovery Disk to diagnostic the system. Once you erase the HDD with Super FDISK you will not be able to restore Vista. You will have to use the Recovery Dick to wipe clean the HDD and reinstall Vista. During the Disc erase of the HDD using the Recovery Disc I had an error that would not let the program erase all of the data off the HDD. So I downloaded the Drive Fitness Test Cd image program from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies to check the HDD. After the diagnostic test was finish... Read more

Keyboard and mouse stop working

Hi, I'm having some major problems with my Dell Dimension 8400 which runs on Windows XP.
It all started with some files found and replaced during chkdsk.
My PC was working fine yesterday, but today when I turned it on the problem started.
At first, everything is okay. Then, after the initial Windows page the screen goes black and a gray bar appears at the bottom. At this point, the keyboard and mouse shut off (lights go off) and stop working. Once the gray bar has finished loading (1-2 seconds), windows continues to start as usual. The only problem is when I get to the log in screen (where I have multiple user accounts) I cannot choose one to log on with because the keyboard and mouse do not work. I have tried unplugging them and putting them in the USB slot instead but to no avail. I cannot run safemode or anything because the same login screen comes up.
I tried hitting F12 initially and ran hard drive diagnostics which gave me the alarming result:
"Drive 0: ST3160023AS - FAIL - Return Code 7
Drive 2: No device"
Drive 4...my CD drive...diagnostics not supported
Drive 5...my DVD drive...diagnostics not supported

Any Suggestions? Please help!

Thanks in advance.

A:Keyboard and mouse stop working AND STOP 0X0000007B

Please follow the steps here for the Stop 0x0000007B error: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103

As you will note, one cause can be a boot sector virus.

Return Code 7 can indicate hard drive failure. Drive 0 is the hard drive.

As for CHKDSK replacing files and causing this problem, it's not likely. Even IF you check both options- fix file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, it didn't 'cause' the problem, it just made it more evident.

Backup everything you do not want to lose and consider replacing the hard drive.

I have been getting some pretty bad blue screens lately the first one started out as the "Stop 0x00000101 "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval" BSOD but then I stopped receiving those and started getting "machine_check_exception__Stop: 0x0000009C" though I have got the 0x00000101 two times after the machine check exception BSODS started. So I have included some OS information, my hardware specs, and I have attached a perform report and my Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 file and followed the steps exactly. Though I did zip each folder up then zip the zipped folders together for some inception effect :P

Hi alex6ber.

In the zip, there is only one crash dump, and that is of 31/05/2012. I doubt that it will give any idea about the present situation.

Attachment 301767

Also, follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

The Print Spooler on my Asus Win 7 Laptop has stopped working most of the time. I looked at the Services and noticed that Print Spooler seems to repeatedly start and stop but never stabilises. Consequently none of my network printers, PDF creator, XPS printer, etc operate, but they are displayed occasionally in Devices & Printers.
I've looked at C: Windows/System32/Spool/Printers but there are no files to delete.

Any ideas would be most welcome... please.
Many Thanks

Hi! :wave:
I'm new person at this forum, and i want to get some help
When I'm click on my NBA Live 06 icon , shows blue Stop Error Screen :
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try chaging video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x00000008E (0xC00000005, 0x82E73E22, 0xF36B493C, 0x00000000)

Then goes numbers 1..2...3... and so till 100, then my computer restarts.

So... Why? I really need help...

A:Stop Error Screen (STOP: 0x00000008E ...) why?

Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram, and running a disk check.

If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 minidumps together and post them here.

Instructions for posting your minidumps can also be found in the above thread.

I'll attempt to make a very long story short:

Major virus infection on computer resulted in fdisk and reformat. I used Win 98SE to fdisk and reformat, as I couldn't for the life of me find a format on the Dell Operating reinstallation CD. (could be first mistake)

Used Win 98 SE startup diskette to start system w/CD rom support.

Navigated to D: Drive which containe the XP OS reinstallation. Navigated to I386 folder and typed WINNT to begin reinstalling files.

Start WIn XP setup and began copying files to HD.

Screen shows: The MS-DOS based portion of setup is complete. Setup will now restart you computer. After your computer restarts, WIN XP Setup will continue. Remove floppy, etc.

Computer restarts - did inspection of system, shows Win XP Setup, loading files (drivers, controllers, etc.)

Starting windows - Welcom to Setup:
1. Setup - press enter
2. Repair (using Repair Console)
3. Quite - F3

Pressed enter

Next message:

Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer. This may involve running a mfg supplied diagnostics or setup program.

Setup cannot continue Press F3

System then attempts reboot, attempts installation again by booting from HD. Then error message:

Stop error:
Stop: 0x0000007b
(0xf7cb063c, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

At this point I must shut off the PC.

Yesterday I had a bad spyware infection on my PC. I was unable to access task manager, and my explorer had crashed, so I had to restart my pc.

When I restarted, I got a STOP: 0x00000024 error message. Then I tried starting in safe mode, which froze at Mup.Sys and then popped up a STOP: 0x00050 message. At the top it said PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

Since then I've booted the PC with NTFS for Dos and ran a chkdsk, which came up with no errors. The hard drive diagnostics on the PC says the harddrive passes the check.

The only thing I've been able to find is:

Possible Cause: Depletion of Nonpaged Pool Memory
If the nonpaged pool memory is completely depleted, this error can stop the system. However, during the indexing process, if the amount of available nonpaged pool memory is very low, another kernel-mode driver requiring nonpaged pool memory can also trigger this error.


Either increase the amount of installed random access memory (RAM), which increases the quantity of nonpaged pool memory available to the kernel, or reduce the number of files on the SFM volume.

I don't really know where to go from here, so any help would be appreciated. The OS is Windows XP Pro.

A:STOP: 0x00000024 and STOP: 0x00000050

Hi ragnarok35

Chkdsk can help with disk problems, but doesn't do anything to remove malware. Did you remove the malware first? If so, what tools did you use?

If you have good recent backups of your data & installable media for Windows and for the programs you use - erase the hard drive & reinstall. Don't reconnect to the Internet or any networks until you have an antivirus and firewall installed and running.

If you don't have good backups yet, backup your personal data first. And scan it for malware before restoring it to a freshly recovered computer.

A quicker, though less secure method: clean the system as thoroughly as possible with a bootable CD/DVD with up-to-date antimalware tools (I recommend making a UBCD4Win DVD --- http://www.ubcd4win.com --- it is free to make, so long as you have a WinXP CD or installation files folder). Once clean, perform an in-place repair reinstall of Windows --- http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Best of luck
