Solved: problem with signing into sites with user name and password

Q: Solved: problem with signing into sites with user name and password

as part of my job, I have to sign into certain sites using a user name and password. Normally, this is no problem. Today, when I enter the user name and password, the sine in page just resets and shows up as if I had not entered the user name or password at all. It makes me start over again.

When I attempt to sine in from another computer, using the exact same user name and password, it works just fine. I am really stumped. I can access other web sites from this computer, just not some of these sites that I have to user the user name and password.

Any ideas

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings all My dilemma began this morning I went to sleep last night after playing several games WoW TF Call of Duty chatting on AIM and Yahoo and checking E-mail The usual daily stuff When I woke this morning I found my laptop can no longer access ANYTHING that requires a username or password not Name/Password will sites/apps work. User I cannot log into my games I cannot connect to AIM Yahoo IRC cannot check E-mail on Hotmail load my Work E-mail nothing If it's a website it simply hangs at quot connecting to www website com quot for whatever site it is if it's Yahoo or AIM it simply hangs at the login then returns an error Games simply stall at the quot Connecting quot step I have restored my system to Monday when everything worked to User Name/Password sites/apps will not work. no avail I have downloaded SP which was probably long overdue and that did nothing I have changed nothing on my system since it worked at midnight this morning and when I awoke at am it was in its current state I am staying in a hotel and at first believed this to be the issue However I have a work laptop as well and was able to access all of the above services on both the Ubuntu and Windows sides of the laptop so I cannot blame the hotel Network It seems as though something was updated overnight which I cannot understand because Windows will not update unless I authorize it I had a firewall up as well so I don't think any intruders performed any malicious actions on my PC but who's to know really If there is any additional info I can provide please let me know Thanks

My operating system is Windows XP, Home Edition. My problem is as follows: My daughter's user account is password protected and for some reason won't recognize the correct password. I have attempted, under her account and under the administrative account, to change the password and also delete it, but the attempted changes are ineffective. I tried making the changes under safe mode, but her account, for some reason, doesn't even appear when I go to User Accounts via the control panel. I considered just transferring her music and photos and setting up a new account. But, her photos are privacy protected so the account won't let me do that.

My grandmother was recently hacked and she changed all her passwords herself (yay!). However she did not write down her new local user account password for her laptop.

I tried downloading OPHCrack, I burned it as an ISO file and put it on a DVD-R(only thing I had on hand) and i changed the boot order on her BIOS menu to had the DVD drive as the first priority. It does not run....I hear the disk drive moving, or spinning but the program does not run. Are there any other options or do I have to do a complete system restore to bypass this? Also if that is what I have to do how do I do that without being in her control panel?

I upgraded to XP and I'm much happier
but I'm having a few problems.
If I log out of a screen name it won't let me log back in to any of them. I end up having to restart. I had to delete the other two SN and change the setting so windows logs into the primary screen name when it starts up. Is there something wrong?

Hi,

Is there any way to make Windows not require a password after signing out for offline account?

I don't mean auto login process as boot up, I've already enabled this on my offline account for Windows 8.1 but instead I mean after boot up auto login and then I sign out, I am then required to input a password to sign back into Windows.

A:Sign In without the need for Password after Signing Out?

I don't know any way to do it if the account has a password. During install when setting up as a local account you can leave the password blank. I believe in that case when you sign off, to get back in you just click the user picture.

You could then put in a power on password. In that case you would only have to enter a password when first turning the machine on. Or not if you feel the PC is in a secure place.

I am having trouble signing into Windows 10. A few days ago I noticed the system was running slow so I did a reset of Windows 10. When everything was ready to setup again, I set up my user account with my usual password, however, when asked if I wanted to link to my Microsoft Account, I said "do it later". I cannot reset password from Microsoft account because it is not linked. When trying to sign in from the Welcome page, I type in every variation of my password to no avail. I have tried rebooting in safe mode but Windows 10 will not allow unless you type in your password. I have even tried doing a reset from account settings (ESC when restarting) and it STILL asked me for my password. I am frustrated and now I feel like my computer is a thousand dollar paperweight. Any help would be appreciated!

However, for unknown reasons, I can connect to the internet, but I cannot access the Microsoft page to login, or to other pages that seem to need https - such as trying to download Chrome.

A:Problem finding user id and password

I assume this PC works fine, other than that you can't get online with it?

Re Verizon support: you say "I gave up".

Why?

Was there a language barrier and you literally could not understand him due to his lack of English language skills?

Was he possibly competent in English, but could not explain how to pour water out of a boot?

Was he possibly competent in English and gave possibly accurate information, but you couldn't follow it for some reason? If so, what was that reason?

Or did he appear to be unwilling to provide instructions as if he feared you were unauthorized and trying to break into someone else's account?

Is your only problem the lack of user ID and password? That is, if you had them, would you know how to resolve your problem?

Is Verizon the only game in town?

More info needed.

If you don't have the password, you'll need to call Dell support.  Be prepared with your ownership details and if the system warranty has expired, with a credit card to pay for the support call.

Hi. As if everybody else's password problems weren't bad enough...

My XP got badly currupted, so I moved the hard drive to a healthy computer so I could save my documents before rebuilding. The problem is that the user account folders, containing everything I want to save, are locked, and I can't get a prompt for the passwords (I know them) because this is now an E drive and the OS on it isn't doing anything.

Thank you for any help you might be able to give!

I have windows XP Home SP3. I bought Buffalo AirStation WHR-HP-G54 wireless router. I tried to access the router on the browser using 192.168.11.1 and then ask for user name and password. the manual says that the username is "root" and leave the password blank I did that but I couldn't access the router.

I reset the router using the rest button. The router IP becomes 192.168.1.1, Now I try to acccess the router but the username and password still wrong.

the router is working and I can use the internet but I need to access the router to make my network secure because now it has no encryption.

How can I figure out the username and password?

My desktop Windows 7 PC is sick. When it finishes booting the log in page is displayed but only one user name is displayed, and the password (that my wife had taped to the display) is declined. There is no "Guest Account" or "Administrator Account" option displayed.

So far as I can tell, the only solution is to treat it like a lost password and re-install Windows using the format option which I believe means losing all files including all data files. Someone please tell me this ain't so!

Developers created an application using C # and .Net.
It is being used in Windows XP, IE 6.0.

On one page, there are buttons called Approve and Reject. When the user clicks the buttons, a pop up window appears asking the user to enter a password.

This works fine on most people's machine.
But on one guy's laptop, the pop up box appears, but it doesn't load properly. (see attachment for 2 screenshots).

He tried logging into another user's machine and all worked well. So the problem seems to be a setting on his laptop. He just got a new laptop about 2 months ago, so it's not a memory problem.

Any ideas on why the pop up box doesn't load correctly on his laptop?

Okay....

2003 domain, and Exch 2003 for email.

We change passwords every 30 days ( policy)

So one of my users changed thier password and now can no longer access network resources. She cant open her email ether because we store the PST file in a mapped my documents folder.

SO when I try to open her my documents it wants me to athenticate. So I put her user name and password in, in the following format

domain\user
password

It just bounces me back to the logon box..

I have reset the password again I have power cycled her machine and rebooted all the DC's and the Exchange box.

I dont understand...

If I change the password and I am able to logon that mean I am using the correct credentials, cause I am not logging on with chached ones. I dont know maybe someone has had something like this before.

Hello,
it's weird but I can't change the password of a domain user when I'm logged on a domain pc with Windows 8.

I'm sure that the password mets the requirements (I also tested here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security/pc-security/password-checker.aspx ), in fact if I change it from a domain controller I can do it without any problem.

But if I try to set the same on Win 8 I can't, the system tell me that the password doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
I also examined the event viewer but seems that the system didn't record any event related to.

Some suggestion about to solve it?

I am the only person that uses my pc. If I remove my master password from firefox should there be any worry about someone getting my passwords. Or is a master password only needed when multiple people use the same physical pc?

A:[SOLVED] Do you need a master password for single pc user?

Even if you are the only user on your PC, it might be advised to use the Master Password feature for the best security. You can find info about using Master Password at the Mozilla Help Site

Generally, you want your passwords to be as secure as possible, so it might not be a good idea to store them in Firefox at all, since it may be possible for others hacking into your computer to easily find them. As an alternative, I recommend KeePass, which has much more advanced security for storing your passwords, and is easy to make entries that will auto-enter your login info to sites.

A:Solved: Trouble with a User Account Password

Boot into Safe Mode and log in as administrator, (if you are asked for an admin password, try leaving it blank, as this is the default setting)
Once logged on as admin, you should be able to access the user accounts and change or remove the password.

To get into safe mode, keep tapping the F8 key early in the boot up process (Some keyboards may require you to turn on the F Lock feature first)

ctwest, sorry for the delay in responding, but Access questions are best posted on the Business Applications forum, even though yours is a programming question.
If you haven't found an answer to this question yet, you do not need to prompt users for their password to identify them.
Access knows who they are when they have logged on, you can identify them using the CurrentUser or Application CurrentUser.

This is another minor annoyance, related to my earlier post today. I attempted to resolve the "Unlock Computer" message in switching users by creating a password for myself in Control Panel/User Accounts. It did not work.
That is, it was not the password required to unlock the pc but now is required whenever I attempt to log on. There seems to be no option to re-set or entirely delete the password, which on my home pc is annoying and unnecessary. I suspect there is a way to do this?

Of course, that still leaves the "unlock computer" problem, but that is another issue.

I lock computer by pressing WinKey+L or just wait few minutes and it start screensaver and lock itself. The problem exists ONLY when screen saver is running (tried third party screensavers and ones that were built in by Microsoft - no difference).

If ScreenSaver is running and I physically press turn off button on system unit, my computer exit screensaver, bring applications that are running to the front of screen, and lets me to work with them while Vista attempt to shut computer off. To make the matter worse, it almost always bring dialog about waiting for some applications more time or cancel shut down attempt. If I cancel it - i get full access to previously locked session without entering user name or password....
Could it be that this problem just my system specific?(not likely)

Hi In A domain environment when wifi user a reseting connect cannot user directory from password to Active after i rest a user password from active directory users and user cannot connect to wifi after reseting a user password from Active directory computers he is unable to login to Windows with new password He is configured to login through wifi And we are using single sign on in the wifi settings This issue is only affecting few users connection to company wifi network is authenticated through x so we manualy create a wifi profile for x At the dual login screen the new credentials we are using active directory credentials for wifi since it's x are entered First it user cannot connect to wifi after reseting a user password from Active directory spits an error that unable to connect to wifi Then windows spits an error of invalid user name or password If we enter the old credentials at login in both wifi access and windows access we are able to login to Windows it logs in with Cached credentials but I it obviously is unable to connect to wifi network The user is a member of wifi group so he has access to wifi and he can access wifi through his iPhone Also another observation is that if I login with his Cached credentials and configure a wifi profile connection using his new reseted password password windows spits an error that cannot connect to the network So the core issue is that after reseting his password from active directory users and computers he cannot connect to wifi through windows The workaround that currently I do is i login with his Cached credentials to Windows and then i use my own credentials to configure wifi connection and ask him to login to Windows using his Cached credentials while he will be using my credentials for wifi access And for other systems that will be using credentials like email he uses new credentials Pretty crude solution Any way how to figure out what could go wrong Besides i have tried configuring a wifi connection profile on another users laptop using the affected user credentials I got same error that windows cannot connect you to wifi So the real issue is that after resetting the password of the user from aduc he cannot connect to wifi Any clue idea Windows is latest and updated We are using Microsoft forefront endpoint protection

A:Signing In Problem (help Needed)

It's possible that the removal of the Trojan caused some damage to the OS. This happens because some of these buggers get their hooks into some of the system files.I'd try running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run dialog ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/ )If that doesn't work, then try a repair install ( http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm ) although it's a real PITA to sit through the 65 or so Windows Updates afterwards.Good Luck!

A:Problem signing into a website

Hello emma, welcome to Sevenforums!

After you get this wrong password prompt (would you be able to post a picture of it here so I can see it?), is there any option to try again, so that you can sign in with the right credentials? And furthermore, is there any option or check-box that lets you 'save the username and password' for that site?

And (unless for any reason you wouldn't like to) if you say what the site is, I can give youwalk through on how to fix the problem through the site, if possible.

Do you use Internet Explorer 8? Which browser do you use?

A:Problem signing in with MS account

Oops. Sorry about the needless post. Admin feel free to delete the post.

I continued to fiddle with potential solutions. When the problem first started, I loaded "User Accounts" , entered the properties for my Hotmail account. The name "user" was in the user name window but it wouldn't allow me to change it.
Ultimately, I changed the logon setting to require a password and booted entering the Hotmail account. Then I went to the "User Accounts" window, clicked on my Hotmail ID and was allowed to change the "User Name". I booted again, then went back to the "User Accounts" window and deselected "Users must enter a password...". Voila. I'm back to normal.

Is your computer a desktop?...is your keyboard Bluetooth, if so check the batteries. Try changing USB bluetooth connector to another position.
If the keyboard does not use batteries try changing to a different USB connection on your computer.

I would first try repairing the application. This can usually be done through add/remove programs in your control panel. If you do not see an option to repair immediately, select 'remove' and the option to repair the install should be there before the uninstall occurs.

When I sign on AIM on my laptop, i get messages every minute or so telling me my name has been signed on in at least one other location. Sometimes I am signed on in 3 different locations. At first I figured changing my password would help, but it didn't matter. There wasn't even a break in the messages. Then I decided I had no choice but to get a new screen name. As soon as I logged on with the new name, I got the message again. I have run Spybot, Spyware Doctor, AIMfix, and my Avast antivirus with no success.

Got a little brother (9) who finds out about stuff on the internet that kids from school tell him about. Most of it is not kid appropriate, so my parents asked me to block these sites that they show him..

I've got this thing called "Hosts" (http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts2.htm), which someone here showed me. It's great at blocking ads on other sites, so I decided to try editing the HOSTS file to block other web sites. It works, sort of. I simply added these lines to the HOSTS file, after the rest of the sites:

127.0.0.1 www.joecartoon.com
127.0.0.1 joecartoon.com

www.joecartoon.com (doesn't get blocked)
joecartoon.com (gets blocked)

How can I fix this problem, or is there an alternative?

You usually have to clear the internet cache in the browser you are using after modifying the HOSTS file.

Running Win 7 64bit all updates etc, anyway have never used passwords (sole user ), so booted up computer this morning and woila there it was, wanting "user name" & "Password", never been set up for one so how can I input something that wasn't set up, a bloody nuisance, that's why I love computers, just when you get complacent, it throws a spanner in the works, your thoughts as always most appreciated.

A:Sole user never had a User Name or Password!

Hello Peter,

Since it's wanting you to enter both your user name and password instead of just password, then you might see if using step 2 and 8 in Option One of the tutorial below may help with this. Log On with User Name and Password
Afterwards, if it's still not automatically logging into your account at startup, then the tutorial below can sort that for you. Since you do not have a password, you would just leave the password fields empty. Log On Automatically at Startup
Hope this helps.
