Unlock pc

Q: Unlock pc

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

Preferred Solution: Unlock pc

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: Unlock pc

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Western Digital WD My Passport 2 TB external hard drive
Western Digital's security software allows a password to be set on the external drive, encrypting it. When the drive is connected to a PC, a virtual CD (VCD) partition runs (via autorun) an unlocker utility WD Drive Unlock.exe, that allows password entry.
When I connect the locked drive to a Windows 7 PC (that does not have any WD software installed), the autoun popup appears and I select "Run WD Drive Unlock.exe". At that point, User Account Control (UAC) elevation prompt appears, requiring Administrator
password in order to continue.
WD Drive Unlock then lets me enter password.
Because of UAC elevation, the unlocker can be used only by an Administrator user or by a standard user account who knows the Administrator password.

QUESTION
Is UAC elevation prompt truly necessary?
Is it appearing because Western Digital hasn't coded the unlocker exe correctly, or would any such utility require UAC elevation?

I'd like to find a way that a standard user account can run the unlocker to enter passsword and access the external drive, without having to know the Windows Admin password.

I spilled something on mouse the other day and as a result I cannot right-click. Instead, I press shift and click. For some reason, lately, I have not been able to do this. I also notice that the function key is not doing anything and the F1-12 buttons work without it, as if the Fn is locked. Does anyone know how to change this back? I can't right click at all anymore and its kind of annoying.

Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?
 

A:P4 Cpu unlock?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

I do have PC based on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard, I bought it already assembled, and out of the box it had this 3TB Hdd Unlock program installed. I would have to reinstall my system soon and I was wandering what exactly this software is for? What is it do? Will I need it when I'll reinstall my system or not really?

A:3TB Hdd Unlock

It's most likely intended to allow you to see and be able to use all of a large drive.

Windows can only see and utilize about 2.2 TB on a drive that is initialized as MBR. If you had a 3 or 4 TB drive, the portion above 2.2 would be useless and not even visible.

The standard way around that is to initialize as GPT, rather than MBR. GPT doesn't have that 2.2 TB limitation.

BUT--some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloadable software that can overcome the MBR limitation. It tricks Windows, so that you can see and use the portion above 2.2 TB. I'm not sure if it's usable on drives larger than 3 TB. I'm pretty sure that's what Gigabyte has provided to you in this case. I'd guess you have a 3 TB drive and the builder knew of the limitation, so used this special Gigabyte download.

It doesn't have anything to do with installing Windows per se. If your drives are under 2.2 TB you don't need it or if you can initialize the drive as GPT rather than MBR, you don't need it. Otherwise, you do need it, unless you don't care about not being able to use all of a large drive.

I have recently downloaded some blank census forms ,from Ancestry, which are in pdf format.

My intention was to extract data from the census relevant to my ancestors and fill in the blank forms and store on my hard drive, rather than print the form fill in by hand and keep a hard copy. However I cannot type any data onto the form as I suspect the form may be protected.

I downloaded a trial version of abode acrobat pro but I wasn't able to do what I wanted. The nearest I came to it was by using the "typewriter" tool. But this was rather long winded as I had to open the tool , type in the information in the relevant field and reopen the tool before I could type in the next field (unless I was doing something wrong).

Is there any way I can unlock the files to be able to type in the relevant fields.

The forms can be found here http://www.ancestry.co.uk/charts/ukcensus.aspx

Thanks for any suggestions.

Does the site want you to pay for the form first or is it supposed to be all free to take and modify?

So I installed Windows 7 over the weekend and love it, it's awesome, I fixed any initial problems I had etc etc.. but there's one issue that I cannot figure out. My laptop is asleep rather than off most of the time, so when I open the lid it turns on and up comes my user log in.

That's all fine, but after I type my password in and hit enter the screen goes black for a solid 10-15 seconds. This happens every time, and always for the same length of time. It also does not matter whether I am logging in or just unlocking, I still get a long period of black screen with no activity.

What can I do to troubleshoot a problem like this? Video card drivers are installed, and I'm in single display mode (don't have an external monitor) so I can't think of a reason for Windows to be doing this.

Thanks for any ideas.
