Preferred Solution: IIS User Authenication 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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: IIS User Authenication Problem

OK this is the problem I'm talking about.. I've kinda made a bit of progress.

Heres what I've done.
in the IIS manager, I've left the virtual directory as anonymous access, then on the folder its self I have changed the NTFS security properties, so only certain users have access (not the account that IIS uses for anonymous access), the login box now comes up so I can login, but then once inside that area there is a 2nd secured section (different username/password required) which is where this box appears (see attached file), or I get this straight away if I try and access the site from my own machine.. e.g.

Accessing From Client Machine

--URL-->Username and password requested--> login ok-->inside secured area-->link to 2nd secured area-->username and password requested--> login fails (comes up same as attachment)

Accessing From Server (using domain name not 'localhost')

--URL->Username and Password requested-->Login fails (comes up same as attachment)

all I need to know is why it keeps doing the computername\username or domainname\username and failing the login.

Well I have been trying to get the wireless setup on the computer at work. We use Cisco LEAP to secure it, now I can get the system to see the network and try to connect but each time it kicks back asking for username and password. I put in the information and yet it still doesnt work.

We currently have a Dell E6400 with Dell wireless card 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card. Any help or advice would be welcomed, it does connect to other networks fine just not any with LEAP.

i have a belkin wireless router that has wep encryption and im the only person in the neighborhood that has highspeed internet i would like to know of a way to have my network to be either encrypted with wep or not, BUT i want to to work as stated below.I want the network to prompt each user with a login screen to login to the network. My school does the same thing to keep unauthorized people out. How do i do this?



A:network authenication

That would require the use of a Radius Server. Some wireless access points have the ability to use a Radius Server for authentication. But you probably can't afford to do that. There is hack out there on the Internet to turn a normal wireless accesspoint into a Radius server but I would suggest you use extreme caution.

A:Unable to map XP Share in Vista - Authenication Fails

I'm sorry if you covered this, but I'm having trouble understanding: Are you trying to map a drive on a Vista machine to an XP machine or vice versa?

If you are mapping Vista to XP, you may need to check your Control Panel->Network and Sharing Center. Find your connection (it may already be displayed) and make sure the "File Sharing" flag is on.

Good evening from Graz,

i have quite a strange problem on my personal pc since the last few days. I cannot login to my useraccount(which has a transparent picture at the logon screen since a few days).
I have just one workarround: if i login with my adminaccount and logoff, the userpicture of my privateaccount appears again and the login is possible.

What could this problem be related to?

Hi! I did an new install of windows 7 (home first then upgraded to pro)
I want to hide a user by doing this on the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Winlogon \SpecialAccounts\ UserList ..then add dword32 by my username value to 0
I did this on my old laptop and it worked perfectly.

Now I've done the same thing on my new laptop. It works but stangely, the folder still appears in c\users.

The user is not visible in the panel control\users or at the start of the PC

I'm sure i've done the right thing, what is causing this? Could it be a bad install of windows? Please let me know if you have a idea!

Thank you very much for your help!

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 am using windows xp with two user accounts. Both desktops have minimal folders and stuff on desktops. The problem is when either user tries to go from the user page to the individual desktop. Very slow, sometimes paints black screen for sometime, sometime repaints desktop few times, sometimes goes back to user page.. and sometimes actually goes directly to the desktop.. very confusing. Anybody got any ideas what is causing this software behavior.

My laptop came pre-configured from the manufacturer (Digital Storm, though that isn't relevant) and they assumed that the name of the default, admin account would be the name of the purchaser (my Brother). Since it's -my- computer, I would prefer to have it in my name.

The name of the account I've changed to my name from Control Panel.
but the path to my documents is still C:\Users\***
there is no option to change the name of the folder there is no (RENAME) in the list
I have already changed the name of the user account as appropriate

A:problem with user name

Hello Fazza,

Unfortunately you cannot change the name of the actual C:\Users\(user-name) folder. Only the name that appears for the account at log on and in the Start Menu.

A workaround for this is to create a new administrator account with the name you want. Next copy the contents of all of the folders (including contents in hidden AppData subfolders) in the old account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old account from within the new one.

Hope this help,

In attempting to install a router I inadvertently setup a confusing array of user/administrator accounts which leaves me unable to log in as administrator. Two things 1) My description of the problem leaves people confused and unable to help. 2) Given that people can't really know what my intent is in trying to log in as admin. there are obvious ethical issues involved. It's understandable. I want all those user accounts wiped out so I can just start up without logging in as I did before. Will re-installing Windows do that?

log into your user, go to control panel, administrative tools, event viewer and look at the logs. What error messages are the failed login generating?

hello! iv'e had this problem for about 3 weeks. everytime i try to log onto my user name i will click my name then when i try to put in my password it's just a blank white box with the cursor missing. i still typed in my password even though i could not see it and about 5 mintues later it loged on. now sometimes its faster sometimes its slower. i have scanned with avg and malawarebytes and i found nothing. now today when i tried to scan with malawarebytes like 150+ pop-ups saying low memory and other different stuff i can not remember i got the task manager up and just deleted all them. what should i do

It sounds like the malware is blocking both AVG and Malwarebytes. Try running MBAM in safe mode.

I have for user problem UAC std an admin acct and a std user acct UAC problem for std user - I run in std user most of the time It is becoming a PITA because it keeps asking me for an admin pw for just about anything I tried to chg the UAC but it tells me I must be logged on as an admin user If I do that I can chg the admin user but it does not affect the std user - it is stuck at level if I chg the std user to admin I can chg UAC under the user login but if I go back and chg the login back to std user the UAC is back to level My purpose of running as a std user is for anti-virus reasons I have a good AV program but it seems UAC problem for std user to me that some things that were installed invisibly when running as an admin user don't happen any more I have read all the UAC issue posts I can find but none r exactly my problem and no solutions fit either I tried making std user a member of power users and others but that didn't do anything - unless I need to configure power users somehow I even get prompts to allow ASUS utilities amp help programs to run at boot up how can I chg the UAC for the std user will that stop all the prompts to run programs and change things If not is there anything I can do in the group policies to make some things work without UAC control thx I can't even delete a shortcut from MY desktop without admin pw

A:UAC problem for std user

I'm sorry, but that's the entire point of using a standard user. Locking the user out of anything that might damage/screw up the PC. Standard user can only use normal programs already installed.

I suggest to run with an admin account, with UAC turned on at max safety AND the screen dimming thing when you see the popup.
That screen dimming and lag isn't just cosmetic and annoying.
It is supposed to lock down any other program and accept input ONLY from hardware keyboard and mouse (hence the lag).
This to avoid malware from simply doing its stuff and clicking Ok on the popup (which would be pretty trivial).

Upon Installing afresh XPSP2 Home Edition, I made a mistake when opening a new desktop account that I share with another. For myself I entered the name "Lary" when in fact I wanted "Larry".

After a day or 2, I noticed the mistake and easily corrected the spelling in:
Control Panel
User Accounts
Cannge An Account
Change My Name

Now I have the correct spelling on the desktop log in page,

However Under:
My Computer
Documents and Settings
My folder is still mispelled Lary.

I am unable to right click and rename the folder, because I recieve the message:

" Lary is a windows system folder and is required for windows to run properly. It cannot be moved or renamed"

Is there a solution to this problem? It would be nice to have my name back

Hi smudger1767, please try the following:

When logged on (doesn't matter which profile as long as it has admin access):

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
control userpasswords2
- Click OK
- Check the box titled 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'
- Click Apply then OK and then reboot

This will now load the Welcome Screen where you have to click your name and enter a password (if you have one). If you want to load your profile automatically (in the same way the 'Admin' profile is loading at the moment, let me know and i'll explain what you need to do.

Hope that helps :)

Ok here the problem. at work we have a company laptop that a former employee was issued. before he quit, he hid his login name so it does not automaticaly display when booting up. Ive tried everything i know(without booting from another drive) and searched multiple forums and the only answer i keep getting is "password recovery" when im looking for "login name recovery". the ironic thing is another employee claims to know the password, just not the login name which it is usually the other way around. I attempted to boot in safe mode and use an admin account, but it appears that one does not exist. Is there a way to find the login name without booting from another drive or using a 3rd party program? this is the first time i have faced an issue quite like this. any info or links would help, thank you.

So I accidentally changed my computers SID and my system created a new user account "Taylor-TaylorPC" Where my old username was Taylor and my computer name is TaylorPC. It locked me out of my old user folder, so I can't access my files. What should I do? If there's no solution, how can I back up the files if I can't access them?

A:Problem With User Accounts

I am assuming that the new user has administrator access - assuming this you should be able to right click on the old user name folder under c:\users and use properties - advanced - and ownership to take ownership of the folder tree
This should allow yyou to ceess the folders and contents (if UAC is active you may find that it asks for elevation )
Without Administrator access things are possible but will be a lot more difficult

Stuff that would be installed would get uninstalled after shutting down unless you get admin permission. You could delete stuff without it asking for password but it would always set back to default after shut down anyways.

Now when I next load up the PC it should to my understanding go to the Welcome Screen and the Owner account should be hidden showing only the 4 accounts I put on ready for who ever to log on.

But it doesn't, it goes and logs straight into the Owner account.

So, I try to use the admin account I created to delete it. I can't - the option simply isn't there. So I create another account and still can't - but the option is there to delete the other account that was an admin setting.

Because of another vista problem i had to run Destructive Recovery.
While that was working, the recovery had completed and was now working on startup/installing. and then it froze and so i had to restart it.
then when it started up again, it ran some files through a black screen then took me to the login place and the only login was named "Other User" which asks for a username and password and i have tried all options and it doesnt work.
i tried to run recovery again (by tapping F8 repeatedly, which takes me to the black page of options) however after clickin "repair" option it doesnt allow me back to Tech Guys Recovery page, just keeps sending me back to the log in page.

On XP Home (SP2), one of my user accounts has randomly disappeared from the Welcome Screen, from the User Accounts section of the Control Panel, and from the User Accounts window that comes up when running "control userpasswords2".

However, it hasn't completely gone - the account's document folders still exist, and when I try to recreate it, I get the message "The account already exists".

I don't mind whether the solution is to get the account back or get rid of it completely so I can make a new one - it's just annoying to be halfway between the two!

Hi CaseyC,

Well, the good news is you cannot delete the guest or Administrator accounts on XP. I am assuming that you see the welcome screen. Press Control,Alt, Delete twice and that will bring you to an NT log-in. Type in

Thats a problem with your video adapter and it could be because the user you are trying to change to has set the video settings outside the range of the software or your monitor. Try rebooting in Safe Mode and changing the video settings for that user. If you suspect a game may have made those settings then uninstall that game. Failing that you may need to uninstall the drivers for your video adapter and then reinstall them again.

Looks like a corrupt profile.

Login under a different Admin account, move any personal files for that profile into a folder on the C Drive, then delete the profile and have the user log back in.

If that doesn't work, try removing the user and then re-creating a new login!

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Scroll down the page a see the File Repository area
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Please also do this:
Open Hijack This and click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button. Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button. Click the "Save List" button. After you click the "Save List" button, you will be asked where to save the file. Pick a place to save it then the list should open in notepad. Copy and paste that list here.

i installed ubuntu on my new laptop.installed just fine.when rebooted it asks for user name and password.when installing i was asked for a password but no user i cannot get into sytem without user name.thanks.

A:Ubuntu user name problem

if I remember correctly, ubuntu does actually ask you for a username. You might have looked over it, you might try entering your real name,(in case that's the username) you might try 'username' (assuming username stood in the text box and you didn't change it. maybe 'default' does something.

edit: I looked it up, and the installation guide said the following(this was for an older release, but this did not change)

You will first be prompted for the user's full name. Then you'll be asked for a name for the user account; generally your first name or something similar will suffice and indeed will be the default. Finally, you will be prompted for a password for this account.

again, try your first name, if you entered that it correctly in the full name option, it should be your user name. Good luck! and reply if it doesn't work, and also reply if it works! =)

You guys have helped me with problems in the past, hopefully you can do the same again

I have 3 user accounts on my computer (Mine, the wifes and the childrens). None of them have any passwords attached to them.

Recently when switching from user to user i get prompted for a password, obviuosly as i have never set up any on the accounts i am unable to access the accounts and have to restart the computer. Once it has rebooted i am able to select any of the users without a password being required.

Any ideas why this is happening??

A:User Accounts Problem

For which accounts does this apply to? Just yours or all of them. If it is only one then mabye someone has put a password on them. Try doing a system restore (solves %30 of computer issues) and the see if the password is required.

Everytime I switch users it automatically logs in to my brothers user name which is very frustrating, any way to change it?

A:Switch User Problem.

Hello adz3d,

One method that would stop this would be to create a password for your brother's account. Afterwards, it will no longer auto sign-in to the account. This would be the recommended method.
Another method is to use step 1 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to always have all users displayed on the sign-in screen to prevent this. However, if you click on your brother's icon, it will still sign into it without having to enter a password since it's not password protected as recommended above.

Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8

Hope this helps,

I've created a new user for someone else on my local computer, but there is 1 problem; most of the stuff that is on *MY* desktop, is on the new users' desktop. The reason I think is because I chose "Install for all users", because I thought I'd be the only user on the machine. That changed and now I want a fresh desktop for this new user.
Any ideas?

You might have to un-install all those apps then re-install. Do you have a backup from before when then apps were installed?

"there is 1 other user logged onto your computer, you must switch to and log off this user before you can continue" I am the only user (as administrator) there are or never have been any another user on this computer. Tried in safe mode , same problem, scanned with Eset, Malaware Bytes, Super anti spytware, Spybot etc. No viruse.. Ran Systernal Explorer only 1 explorer process so only 1 user..........Any ideas would be great. Several people (searched Google) with same problem

A:1 other user logged on problem

Is this the paid or free version? I have not used this stopzilla software but there are other free alternatives when it comes to installing certain protection softwares. Plus some on-demand system scanners like Malwarebytes and Superantispyware which could work side by side with your antivirus.

When we logon to our company's User account on our Windows XP computer, it gives me an error stating that it is unable to locate certain files, it is logging me on as a Guest, gives me about a 20 second countdown, and it says any settings or changes will not be saved. This occurred after the boss's son screwed around in the computer and hid some files and deleted or moved other files in an attempt to cover his tracks. How can I recover/help my computer "find" my saved User profile again?

Ok so I have a Win 7 installation where the main account is ok but every existing account and even new accounts have this limitation:

The context menu is messed up, when you right click, you cannot create a new folder etc. it is greyed out.

You cannot pin anything to to the taskbar. The option is there but clicking it, does nothing.

I tried creating new accounts as I figured the existing accounts were corrupted but the same problems happens. This occurs regardless of whether the account is an administrator or standard user.

Aside from those two issues, the profiles seem to behave normally.

Also, I don't think the existing accounts were used beforehand as they were set up due to file sharing as they were set up to share with other users on different PCs. Therefore, not sure how long this problem has existed as I just noticed.

Any troubleshooting ideas are appreciated!

Important things first. Changes like this do not happen. It can be a major problem
Run a full anti virus scan
Download and run malwarebytes. Full scan and update it first

If these are negative, try a system restore.

I saved one of the invisible files on the desktop and in properties --> Security saw that there was no authenticated user group. However, in the C drive files, the ones which are visible, under properties--> security there is the authenticated user group, along with the others such as administrator etc. I dont remember setting up such an account structure.

A:User accounts problem

This problem may occur if the directory that is associated with the account has been deleted from the Documents and Settings folder.

1. Start the computer in Safe Mode, and then restart the computer.
a. After the Power On Self Test (POST), press the F8 key.
b. On the Windows Advanced Options menu, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
c. When you are prompted to select the operating system to start, select Windows XP <edition>, where <edition> is the edition of Windows XP that you have installed, and then press ENTER.
2. Log on as Administrator.
a. On the "To begin, click your user name" screen, click Administrator.
b. Type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.

Note In some cases, the Administrator password may be set to a blank password. In this case, do not type a password before you press ENTER.
3. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
4. Create a new user account. Windows makes a new directory for the account in the Documents and Settings folder.
5. Quit the User Accounts tool, and then restart the computer.

A:User logon problem.

This probably won't help, but, look in the network connections in the control panel and see if there is a network connection that may be associated with the username, if so delete it.

Or you may have to go into bios setup (f1) during startup, and delete any passwords that might be assigned there.

like I said this is a long shot.

You probably should do a clean reinstall of Windows 7 so your friend doesn't have a computer with your leftover "debris" that can't be gotten rid of.

Something I learned to do a long time ago when doing a clean install of Windows is enter ComputerOwner as the username. It can then be given to anyone and not have someone else's name.

I have Vista Home Premium and my son put a guest user on without my knowledge and now I want to remove it and as much as I try this doesnt work. I haved tried all the googling but when I get to the screen that you click to delete that option is not there. All I have is turn on or off or change password for guest user. It means that everytime I leave my laptop for a extended period of time I have to type my password in (a pain) again as I am the administrator. Can anyone help?

A:Delete user problem

Hello Kiwibabs, and welcome to Vista Forums.

From within your administrator account you can only turn off the Guest account, then delete the C:\Users\Guest folder to wipe it out for now unless turned on again.

If you still have to enter your password afterwards, then check to make sure that the On resume, display logon screen option is unchecked in the screen saver settings. Also check to make sure that you do not have password protection on wakeup enabled.

Hope this helps,
