remembering login and password

Q: remembering login and password

my wife told me i needed a new laptop for Christmas and Anniversary so i could give our daughter my old laptop...

ive gone from the tried and true XPpro to 7home and the latest firefox (10?)...

as i set up my bookmarks and login information, as long as my browsing session remains 'in force' my website favorites remember my login information. once i exit firefox, all of that info is blown out...

ive gone through the options and tools and such for firefox and ive got the 'remember passwords for sites' box checked under security but to no avail...

i have the history shut off (as i did in my old versions) so im wondering if they have made it mandatory to keep the history (new method of tracking cookies?) if so that really blows...

can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hello all,

I help out part-time at my local library. One of our research stations (Win2k), just can't seem to remember the login/password info for a site we frequently access. We make sure the "save password" box is checked when logging in. After IE is closed and restarted, when a patron tries to log in, the username/password fields are blank, even though we saved it previously.

We have that info saved on our other research stations and the info never gets lost. It's just this one problem system. All the systems are running Win2K and have latest IE version and updates. All the settings are near identical.

The site in question is www.corptech.com. It is the login part to their secure site. It is a research database in which we allow patrons to access. That is why we keep all the login/password info saved, so patrons can go directly into the site. The problem system can never remember this info, so we always have to retype the info to login, which is a hassle.

I have double-checked the settings (autocomplete, privacy settings etc.), run adware/spyware/virus scans and uninstall/reinstalled IE. I'm still having this password problem. I downloaded Firefox and the password manager remembers the info successfully everytime. But not IE on this one system. So it seems to me something is wrong with IE. I have even tried clearing all the cache, cookies, temp files, then reattempting to login and save the info. It still isn't remembering.

In Firefox 2.0.0.20 (the latest version that will work in WinMe), the username and password for Virgin WEBMAIL is prompted, but the identical information for an identical login form for Virgin Broadband USAGE is NOT prompted; and the settings for REMEMBERING the login details are ineffective FOR THIS SITE. I have tracked differences between these sites to differences in 'Page Info' in Firefox's Tools menu, but I cannot change the Page Info for USAGE to be the same as for WEBMAIL.
I have failed to trigger login details prompting by 'artificially' adding them to the stored passwords list. Can someone help me make Firefox prompt the login details for Usage as it does for Webmail ?

Hi
I log in to a business web site I use frequently. The log in seemed to remember my email address and password as when I typed thefirst letter the address etc automatically came up. Very handy if you are logging in a lot to the same site. For some reason its gone and i have to type in the full details. I think it happened after I had to use safe mode.
Anybody know how to restore this?

Hi, My home build desktop with windows XP home has stopped remembering my login name on some of the sites I use a lot. Two of them happen to be my banks. Called banks and they said they had nothing to do with it. Don't know what I did but wish I could get it back to remembering. Anyone know what I can do? Thanks

A:computer stopped remembering login names

Hi drhugh -

I find that this is not unusual for me at certain times. You should not have your Bank as a Saved Login (password) name.
Every 2 or 3 months I need to reinstall several Login s and passwords (even my email will ask for it to check that I am using it.

I keep my passwords and Login names listed apart from other programs just for this type of event.

Only yesterday my wife needed to retype her Facebook Login and password, and I needed to retype my email login .

You should always change important passwords etc. (like banks) every few months to be more secure also.

No direct solution here, just a few words of advice -

Hello All,
New to the forum and my first post. I have been banging my head against my computer for a few days now trying to figure this out.
Heres what works...
I have Win7 running on Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro. I login using the login it made me create during install. Once logged in, I added it to the domain successfully. Now, when I use my domain login (domain/login: password) it logs me on and sets up a new desktop for me. All of my network drives are mapped and outlook can be configured with my domain user's exchange email account.
Heres what doesnt work...
After logging off and logging back on (Win7 remembers the last login, with domain and everything) it sets up a fresh dektop and doesnt remember that I set everything up.
Things of note...
domain\user has been added as a local administrator (still didnt work)
I have noticed that the domain\user "Profile" is set to 'Temp' and I cant seem to change it.
ANy help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

Are you using roaming profiles on your network?

If so I suspect there is a problem accessing the profile on the server it is stored on and thus you are being logged on with a Temporary profile.

I'm a new Skype user (Skype Portable) and the only way I can get Skype to remember my password is to not sign out but use the Quit Skype option when right-clicking the taskbar entry. I found this by doing a global search.

Doing this leaves me signed in to Skype (Task Manager shows the two Skype entries), so I'm wondering if this could be a problem, security wise.

Also, if anyone does know of a way to get Skype to actually remember the password, maybe adding a line to an ini file (appinfo.ini ?) I'd sure like to know.

Having trouble logging in since I tried to stop xp asking for password at the startup screen. I looked around and was told to type in Run control userpasswords2 in user accounts and removed the password which was the start of this problem. There was no option to remove password and all I did was to uncheck the box asking me for password. My blank password wasn?t recognized any longer.

"User Option could not be started with the supplied user information. Ensure that the supplied information identifies an Administrator on this computer." is the error message I'm getting.


Before I used to username Administrator & leave my password blank and login that way but was getting tired of seeing that login box. So I tried to eliminate it. But now I can?t login to my Administrative account as the blank password doesn?t work anymore. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue? I can get into safe mode and now have another account I can access but a lot of files aren?t available to me any longer from my Administrative account. Thanks, Ralph.

Hello All,
   I need to remove user passwords. Yes I have removed Admin password. I have used Trinity, Hiren's boot disk, UBCD and other linux and password removal programs. I want to remove the user passwords from the login. I have done the safe mode startup and disabled the EUFI. I cannot login to the admin or safe mode unless i enter the user password. Which is what I am trying to remove. I have watched videos and read tutorials and all of them tell me to login and then change the password. Is there any possible way to remove this? I am talking about the main user login that has the user name with the email under it. Is there a way to remove them from pulling the hard drive and accessing it through usb as an external drive. I have been through multiple forums and all with the same thing. They all tell me to login and then change the safe mode or user settings. I want to remove the user password without loging in. PLEASE do not send me a site that shows me how to remove password after loging in or login and change the start up or settings. I already know how to do those things. Like I said I already removed admin password, but I cannot login or it does not show that user as a choice to login. Yes I am very frustrated with this. I think I am going to quit my job and quit working on computers if this is what Is installed for the future.   <<<<this is how I feel. DUMB!!

Hi there

I bought myself a new PC last week:

Asustek motherboard
AMD Athlon 5600+
Sapphire Radeon 4670HD
2 gig ram
320g hard drive
Windows XP Pro

Anyway, everything has been working perfectly until today. I was checking facebook or something on the net, when randomly the windows XP login screen came up. I click on my user name and now it asks for a password. I never had a password to begin with so I have no idea what to type. I am 100% sure there was no password before. So then I restarted the computer and it took me to the login screen again, still asking for a password. Oh, and my virus definitions are completely up to date as I have an ADSL connection and my NOD32 virus program updates itsself automatically as new updates come in.

Would really appreciate some help, I seriously don't want to format my new PC already.

I recently bought a Windows 7 Pro x64 system for my shop.

I wanted to network it with my XP Pro sp3 system in the house.

It was very difficult to do, with many wrong turns, but in the end I managed to establish the network.

When I first set up the XP system, I set it up so that I would not have to enter a password to log in. I ran like this for five (?) years.

When I was in the process of establishing the network with the Win7 system, one of the roadblocks I could not get past was that on the Win7 system I kept getting a request for a username and password in order to access the files on the XP system.

After much grumbling, I finally established a password on the XP system and that enabled the network both ways.

But now, of course, I have to enter a password every time I start the XP machine. I am unhappy having to wait around while the XP system boots up just to enter my password.

Is there any way to by-pass having to enter the password on the XP system without breaking the network?

(BTW, I do have the 'use password protection' option turned off--both places on the Win7 machine.)

Hi cvos -Just from using Google, this is a quick answer for you -You can use the hidden administrator account to change the password of the account:*When your PC starts up, hit the F8 button before you see the Windows Splash screen. *Select Boot in safe mode and hit enter. *When you reach the login screen, you should now see the administrator account. Access it like any other account.To change a password, go to Start>Control Panel>User Accounts>User Accounts(yes again)>click on the account you want to change> click "Change the password" and restart normally. Regards -

I have a laptop running windows 10. It has decided that my normal password is the wrong password. It won't allow me to reset the password because I don't have the external device info it is looking for. Is the PC salvageable or is it now just a boat anchor?

Hi everyone.I have just come into possesion of my late brothers laptop which is running XP Pro.No one inthe family really cares for it,so if I can get it going,its mine.

Everyone in the family has had a go at guessing his password,to no avail.

Is there any free programs or reasonably priced ones that may be able to help us bypass the Windows login.Or will I have to take it to the computer repair shop for maybe some help.

Welcome to Windows comes up first asking me to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to begin.
Then a window comes up with user name,password and log onto.
I have tried going into safe mode and after choosing work in safe mode,safe mode with command prompts always returns to the login window no matter what.

Thanks for any help or maybe point us in the right direction.

Thanks.
David.

A:No Password For Login

These types of questions have been asked before.

This forum does not help in bypassing windows logon and gaining admin access to any computer.

If no one in family cares for the laptop, the laptop should not have any important data. So go ahead, format it and re-install Windows.
