can't get in to windows sign in problem

Q: can't get in to windows sign in problem

I didn't have a windows password set on my computer. Yesterday I signed out and restarted, and windows wants a password all of a sudden. I tried a couple of password cracks but nothing worked. I really need some help here.
I have mosey back up if I need it but I would like to get back in as quickly as possible with no loss of permissions.
Here is an interesting aside: my brother called me yesterday and said the same thing happened to him. He is running win xp. Could this be some kind of back door or some other mal-ware?]

Preferred Solution: can't get in to windows sign in problem

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.)

There are password reset CD's that you can find online that will allow you to reset an XP account/password.

The one I use is the Offline NT Password and Registry Editor. Works for all Windows versions.

After having done the update, I'm having two issues that are bugging me:

1. I cannot change the lock screen from the "cave by the shore" default nor bypass it (Brink is working on the bypass issue I believe)

2. If I go into netplwiz and uncheck the need for a password, the "Welcome" screen has the system default user picture, that drawing of a circle over an arch, not the picture I assigned to the account. With the need for a password, the picture on both the sign-in screen and "Welcome" screen is correct tho.

The lock screen issue I can live with since I normally don't use a password, but the default user picture is bugging me. I went into %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and replaced all the default pictures with ones the same name and size of the picture that I have for the account, but it still shows the default.

I've searched around for another place where the default picture is, but cannot find any, even with the search including hidden system files.

Anybody know where the system default user pictures are stored, other than in the User Account Pictures?

Hello TheSchaft,

Q1) I've added OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to be able to disable the lock screen again, but it doesn't do so at startup.

Q2) I'm not aware of way to stop this yet when you have netplwiz set to automatically sign in to an account at startup. The blue note box at the top of the tutorial below will show you the default locations for account pictures to help.

I went into my User Accouts in the Control Panel. I deleted a User called Nathon. I created a new user account with Admin authority named Jack.
However, everytime that I start my computer from my morning bootup, the Signon Window has the deleted User, Nathon.
I have to type in Jack, for the new user, and I get into Jacks Account.

Why is Windows not remembering that I have deleted the USER, Nathon?

I have never had such a problem with any of my other windows computers.

i try to go to a site that uses a windows live ID. It works fine on this computer but when i try to sign on on my dads it does some weird stuff.

First, when i type in my email and password it tells me that i typed in the wrong password. Then i type it in again and it signs me on. But as soon as i go to another page it signs me back out.

I tried changing the cookie settings but it doesn't seem to work. also using different browsers but nothing.

I saw a couple of posts about Windows Live Messenger or something. Do i need to install that on my dads computer? (not sure if its on either.. sounds like it should be on both)

A:Windows Live sign in problem

So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

A:Windows Live Messenger Sign In Problem

Hello joshhammond,
This is one fix from MS,

To troubleshoot the problem on a Windows Vista-based computer:

1. Click Start, type control timedate.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

2. In the Date and Time Properties dialog box, confirm that the date and time settings on the computer are correct, and then click OK.

Here is another one.

MSN Messenger - ERROR 80048820 FIX

Click Start icon (Start Menu)Type "regsvr32 softpub.dll" (without the quotes)

In what will seem like a split second, literally 1/100ths of a second you should see a new window pop up as per below.

You should now be able to log into MSN.I hope one of these work, good luck and post your results.

Originally had Vista (nightmare)  upgraded to Win 7, worked great, upgraded to Win 10, worked great.  Months later was fooling around and changed some settings ("fool" being the keyword here, should have left well enough alone).  I get as far as the user sign-in screen, but when I enter my password or use the fingerprint reader it advances to a blank screen.  I tried intentionally entering a wrong password and using an unregistered fingerprint, it reported it as such without advancing to the blank screen, so it does seem to be accepting my credentials when they are entered correctly.
I AM able to enter the BIOS settings, couldn't find anything there like a "Safe Boot" option.
Looks like I deleted my user info from a single startup related setting.  No other users (including a Guest account) are registered on this machine.  Looking for a way to start the machine so I can then recover/reset to an earlier date.  
Is there a recovery file I can download to a disc that will get me past the sign-on screen?  Something in the BIOS settings?  
Any other suggestions?

My Carbon X1 20bt is experiencing major problems with fingerprint reader and Windows 10. Everything was working fine with Windows 8.1 and the Lenovo software. After upgrading to 10, the Lenovo software was automatically deleted I guess because Windows 10 fully supports sign in with fingerprint. When I read my print in to Windows HELLo, it NEVER recognizes it when signing in. I have read it in to the system multiple times, but have never succeeded to log in with it. This problem has been existing for some time, but yesterday I was doing maintenance to my friends x240 and noticed her reader work without enabling Windows Hello. She didn?t have the pin installed for Hello and the reader worked just fine. On my X1, I have to put in the pin number to Hello or the whole reader is disabled. There was fingerprint reader driver update coming to x240 which I didn?t instal naturally. I tried to instal the 8.1 drivers back, but was unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated, this is anoying!

You have recently removed one or more virusus from this computer, but now a new one has appeared.

First, AOL is extremely slow to start when I click on the icon. Once I've signed on, after a time a new sign-on screen appears on top of what I'm doing. I cancel that one. Soon I see activity at the bottom of the screen (where ordinarily you see "Done" or "//http:/..." etc. The virus is doing its own AOL activity! Soon afterward AOL is canceled, as if I had canceled it.

Also, Microsoft XP suddenly announces they are having to increase my virtual memory. Paging size is currently at 384 Mb, and my RAM is 1.25 GB. This is happening more and more frequently.

I have again changed my AOL sign-on password, and I no longer permit it to use the password automatically (I have to enter it at each sign on).

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hey everyone

Every now and then my Windows 8.1 x64 shows the first sign-in sequence after a restart. I noticed it most recently happened after a normal Start->Power Options->Restart. I'm quite sure it has also happened after right clicking on start button (Control-X) and restarting from there, as well as from a custom shortcut I have for restart (shutdown.exe /r /t 00).

I had just finished installing IBM SPSS 22 for a class I'm taking, but I think this is unrelated.
It goes through the whole "Setting Up Your PC" and "Installing your apps" screens even though its perfectly fine and and all my data including app data is still there. See the attached file for an example of what was most noticeably shown.

With another incident, something similar to this happened but it actually reset some of my settings for things like MediaMonkey, Connectify Hotspot, GOM Player and VLC player. It was like they had been started for the first time ever with no license information or preferences like Always on Top.

Its not a matter of urgency but I keep worrying that one day it will actually mess with my system in a very annoying way.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

When I try to click on the AIM icon taskbar to sign off, it signs me off but the sign on screen window comes back on. Never had that kind of problem before. Before I did the same thing and no screen comes back it signs me off fine, but now the sign on screen comes back on. I believe this strated when they did the Mail update thing on AIM. I have the latest version of AIM 5.9.3861.

Now on my laptop I have the previous version of AIM and no problems there.

I did uninstall and install it and no luck. When I uninstall it I have the AIM folder on my D file. Any ideas why this is happening and suggestion will be helpful. Hope this make sense.

I personally say this is the perfect chance to run like hell and get as far away from AIM as possible, nothing good has ever come from AOL.

Whenever I try to sign in, it dosen't let me and when I click 'Troubleshoot', and repair, it says:
"Your host files contain MSN related entries which may interfere with name resolution. Would you like Windows Live Messenger to clean up your hosts file?"

I've tried scanning, checking for duplicate hosts file, checked the host file, the orignal one, tried clicking yes, tried clicking no, tried reinstalling MSN. But none worked. I need serious help. D=

A:MSN sign in problem

It could be many reasons why this happens...

The messaging servers could be temporarily down for maintenance or may have reached capacity due to heavy Internet traffic (during peak usage hours). Wait a short while, and then try again. You can check our server status page for the latest information on the service.

Disable your 'auto-detect' settings on your browser. For Internet Explorer users, click the IE Tools menu, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, click the LAN Settings button, and then clear the 'Automatically Detect Settings' box.

Check for a false proxy setting. On the MSN Messenger Tools menu, click Options. On the Connection tab, be sure the 'I use a proxy server' check box is clear. This option should only be selected if your network administrator tells you to do so.

If you are using ICS or Router for Home LAN, you may need to adjust some of your settings or update hardware/firmware drivers. For more information on this, search on LAN or Network in the MSN Messenger Help Topics from the MSN Messenger client.

Firewalls and third-party applications may also affect your ability to connect to MSN Messenger. To see if any of these applications are affecting your connectivity, you can disable the application(s) and then try to connect to the .Net Messenger service.

A:XP sign in problem

I'm no expert but

I had the same problem with my customized pc with Windows Xp and I took it to a computer service store (Best Buy's Geek Squad) and they did what is called a REPAIR INSTALL and it solved my computer's problem.

I've been told you may have to do a REPAIR INSTALL but if you don't know how to do it yourself then I 'd highly recommend going to your local computer service store and seeing if they can do it for you. Unfortunetly, it won't be free unless your PC is still under warrenty if you bought it from that specific computer store.

If you don't back up your files when proceeding to perform a REPAIR INSTALL then almost everything saved on your computers (documents,games,programs,etc.) will be erased which will most likely cost you extra money if you want a computer service store to do that for you in addition to doing the REPAIR INSTALL

Good luck.

This one is pretty strange...

Friends Gateway E3600 Desktop. After I finished getting it all tuned up with a clean install of XP Home SP2, all critical updates and a new secondary HDD then installed 1GB DDR RAM, then installled Acronis TI and stored a backup image on the slave drive, the following glitch happened after a few months of normal operation.

At power up the sign-in page came up and there were no users shown!!! Couldn't go any further, so my friend called me and I went throungh about 3 cycles of the same thing. Booted into Acronis and restored the last image. Sign-in went through normally.

I opened the Control Panel>Users Accounts and deleted the single user password and checked the 'Use Welcome Sctreen' option and uncheked 'Use fast user switching'. Rebooted and system performed as expected. Went directly to the 'Welcome' screen after the XP logo and progress bar screen and on into the normal desktop. Repeated the boot cycle about 3 times, then created a new differential backup image with Acronis TI and left.

Yesterday (about 7 days later) he called and said he had that same sign-in screen again with no users shown. My friend is totally computer illiterate and there is no chance he got into the User accounts and changed anything. I doubt he even know how to open the Control Panel. I'll be seeing him this week sometime and will probably have to restore the last TI image again.

Each time I log on to Hotmail I need to enter my password despite the fact I always select the box
"Save my e-mail address and password".
Obviously I'm doing something wrong that prevents my password from being saved.
I would appreciate any help or advice to be able to save my password so that it's not necessary to enter it on each occasion.

Since about three weeks ago I have been unable to sign into a website that I'm a member of. I enter my username and password and it accepts them, only to then re-load the same page again ready for me to sign in, right back at square one. I can access the website fine though my laptop using the same internet connection and if I create a new XP user profile I can also sign in, but I cannot with this profile. Every other website I'm a member of works fine, its only this one that won't. Any ideas at all what I could do? I've done all the usual deleting of cookies and temp files several times over and reset to default settings etc.

A:Website sign-in problem

I get that if I've blocked a Cookie that I shouldn't have. Have a go at looking at your Blocked Cookies and see if it's listed. If you can't see it, type in the URL of the site and set to Allow.

Hope this helps

I have been trying to sign up to Findnot for almost a week but I get a connection error everytime I click on their sign up page. The homepage works ok and so do a lot of their other menus but sign up appears to be bust. I have emailed them 3 times without reply. Has anyone else got the same problem or does someone know what is happening with Findnot?

If I cannot sign up with Findnot is there another provider who has the same or better security specifactions. Not Metropipe please I have had bad expereinces with them.

Thank you

when i open a program let say yahoo messenger then i will click on a button it will automatically signed out? is it my pc or the downloading process?

A:what must be the problem?????automatic sign out!!

Do you have virus protection? It could be a virus or some spyware messing with it. Do you get a lot of pop ups? If you do have anti virus and are not experiencing spyware and pop ups, you can restore your pc to an earlier time when it was working using system restore(assuming you are running windows xp)

I am an avid Scrabble player playing with up to a dozen or more players at a time and all moves are made by email, sometimes up to 80 or so moves a day.
All incoming emails are to my Hotmail address which I've set up with a sound (voice) notification whenever one comes in. I am running Windows Messenger which runs at startup, and until 2 days ago I used to log into Hotmail and sign into Messenger and every time I got an email I heard it arrive. 2 days ago the "Sign into Messenger" option disappeared, and now I have to keep checking manually to see if any emails have arrived.
Prior to this it has been working perfectly for the last 3 months.
I don't think my PC specs apply here, but I have WindowsXP Home SP2, 1024MbRam on an Intel 2.80GHz Dell PC.
Does anyone know how to get my "Sign into Messenger" option back?
My thanks in advance.

I have an account with epost.ca - sometimes I can get to the sign in page and sometimes I can't.  If I do get to sign in page it will not go any further (user name & password are correct).  Message comes back with this page cannot be displayed - fix connection problem - results in my computer being comfigured corrected and something about a problem @ their end.  This seems to be an intermittant problem - any suggestions?

A:problem getting into web site after sign in

After something similar happened to me,
I fixed by dialing back GetRightPro [it was "capturing" the input in the background];
and another time: dialing back my a little too assertively set antivirus and antimalware shields.
Also, make sure you are on their true-blue logon page; from time to time, my regular logon page is not what is displayed.

Some how I messed up my computer and the user accounts. I used to only have one account which was the default Admin. Now, after trying to create a second user, I have gotten rid of my orginal default user and only have the option to sign in to the new user account "clark" or the guest. The big problem is that none of my orgianl setting, IE favorites, my documents, outlook settings are there. I can still get to them but i Have to My computer-Shared Documents-Admin- and then i see all of my old documents(desktop folder with all of my old desktop items, my IE favorites, etc... ) but the Outlook does not work that way. i have to recreate the accounts all over agin and now I have lost all of my emails in the old mail box. The new account says it is the admin for the computer but I still see the old account listed in the my computer like I explained earlier. I do not see a way to get to my old user or setting. When I go to change users I only have one option which is the new account I just created and a guest account. There is not an option for the old account. What do I need to do?

No biggie but I want to find out what is causing this problem. I cannot sign in to my Verizon phone account.
Something is blocking this apparently. I can access the site,enter my correct user and password and am taken right back to the sign in page. No errors nothing. Now I said to myself--self-try to access the account on another

computer. I did on a computer running XP as this one is and there was no problem. I contacted Verizon and they can enter my credentials and access the account with no problem so this must be a setting on this one computer causing the problem. I can sign in to a half dozen other accounts I have with no problem. Any ideas as to what is causing this?

This started last week after I did a search. After that the number 4 started popping up at the beginning of whatever I search for, and also when I sign onto Windows 10. After the splash screen there is a continuous number 4 scrolling in my password box. I have to stop it and then delete it.

It's so annoying, can someone help me figure out what's going on, please?

I can sign in with Mozilla but not Explorer. With Explorer the splash page with the sign in screen just flashes on and off endlessly.
