Preferred Solution: Please Do Not Change Your Password

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.)

Our Windows 7 users are prompted when their passwords will expire in 14 Days, however They are not forced to change thier password before it expires. If the users ignore the expiration warning they can only get logged into the network after having the helpdesk
reset thier password.
Is there a way to force Windows 7 users to change thier passwords on the day it expires. Our WinXP users get the 14 day warning and are forced to change thier passwords on day 14.
I have the GPO configured to notifiy users when thier passwords will expire in 14 days
Thank you,
Glen

A:Windows 7 Expired Password - Recvd Warning prompts but not forced to change password

Hi,
 
After applying above settings, the user can change the password by default at the expire day. Please create a new domain profile and test the issue on several Windows
7 machines. Can the user be enforced to change password at expire day? If not, please refer to the following steps to collect the information for research.
 
1. On the DC, open GPMC, right-click Group Policy Results, choose Group Policy Results Wizard, follow the wizard to collect a Group Policy result for problematic
Windows 7 client.
 
2. On the Windows 7 machine where GPO failed to apply, please perform the following steps to collect log files:
 
a) Please add the specified registry key to enable group policy log (%windir%\debug\usermode\gpsvc.log), and remove or rename it to disable group policy log after
collecting data. You may need to create the Diagnostics key if it is not there.
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics
 
Type: DWORD

Value: GPSvcDebugLevel

Data: 0x30002 (hexadecimal)
 
b) Then on the problematic Win7 machine, run command “gpupdate /force”.

c) Then on the problematic Win7 machine, run command “gpresult /v > gpr_win7.txt”, send me gpr_win7.txt file.

d) On the problematic Win7 machine, run command “eventvwr”, then expand to Applications and service logs -> Microsoft -> windows -> groupPolicy
-> Operational. Right-click on it and click “save event as”. Save the file as .evtx format and send it to me.
e) After that, please send me the above output files. (please zip them first and then send them to me).

 
- %windir%\debug\usermode\gpsvc.log
- gpr_win7.txt
- win7.evtx
 
Please use Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/) to upload the GPMC
result and the zip files, and then give us the download address.
 
Thanks,
Novak

You are speaking about BIOS password which you set up in the BIOS?
As far as I know you cannot remove the BIOS password if you don?t know the old BIOS password.
In such case just the Toshiba ASP could help you? just the Toshiba ASP technician could remove the unknown BIOS password

I've created a password for the guest account. Now I can neither change nor remove it.

Logging on as admin I can't find a setting to change or remove guest account's password.

Logging on as guest I am getting the "windows cannot change password" warning if I try to change or remove it.

On guest account using ctrl+alt+del>"change password", now I get a "access is denied" warning.

Any kind of help would be appreciated. Thanks.

PS: The whole issue has started with me seeing a warning on Bitdefender's Vulnerability module telling that the guest account has no password. I clicked on it and created a password for my guest account from within BD. That doesn't necessarily have to be related with the problem, just FYI.

A:Password Change / Remove Password Problem

So I've enabled password protected sharing for Windows 7 (for my first computer).

So now, when I used my second computer to access my first computer's shared files, it obviously prompted me with a password.
My question is, I don't know what's the username and password for that. I was wondering if someone can help me to find my username and password (or guide to reset this password) so my second computer can access the shared files with my first computer while preserving the password security.

A:How To Change The Password On "Password Protected File Sharing"

Use the username and password that you use when you log onto the first computer.

If that does not work, try
user = computername\user
password = password

...where computername = the name of the first computer.

I have a weird situation here. I have a user on a domain that has changed their password this morning. After they have log in, she is getting a popup in the taskbar saying that her password will expire in 2 days. I though that after she has changed her password,

If you are able to login, go to User CP, click edit Email & Password and change them from there. What do you mean it does not work? The save changes button is inactive? It rejects your new password?

How often should one change password?? Thank you. YOYO

A:Change Password

Depends on password to WHAT?Passwords to sensitive data or secure applications should probably be changed at least every 6 months- - -more often if you share the computer with others or habitually get a lot of malware on your computer. These passwords should never be kept on the computer itself, but written down and kept in a secure location away from the computer.Regards,John

You can change the password manually as often as you want from with in the OS of windows 8/8.1. You only need to be connected to the internet so MS can verify this action taken is from you.

You need to log into the router's administration page (you can do this by connecting to the router by ethernet cable and typing in a web address that you can probably get by googling for the router's brand on google). From there you can change the security code.

Maybe a restriction?

Take a look in Regedt32 at the following keys:

and

If you find values like NoPwdPage or maybe NoSecCPL there, they could be responsible.

I want to change the password on the router in hopes of keeping the thieving person of questionable parentage off but I have no clue how to do so. The router is a Netgear WNR2000 and was set up by the ISP. It's located on a shelf in the linen closet in the bathroom (the only place I had room for it, the modem, and the telephone modem).

A:How to Change Router Password

Hey Lady Fitzgerald,

Do you wish to change your wireless security password or the password needed to enter your router setup?

If you wish to change your wireless security password then you will have to reassign all of your wireless devices with the new network password.

Your routers Manual - http://documentation.netgear.com/wnr...FullManual.pdf

Page 2 will show you how to access your routers settings.

Page 36 and onward will show you how to change your wireless security pass phrase

Hope This Helps,

A:how do i change my network password?

You would need to go to the router setup page using your internet browser.
You should be able find instructions at the router manufacturers website
support section.
If you don't remember the router login,you should find instructions to
reset it at the website also.
The password should be under the wireless settings,but you can
just run the setup wizard and go through the steps to set it up again.

Hello, I am a coop student working for a company that has off-site employees logging on to the domain over VPN on Windows XP. We are getting a lot of helpdesk requests from these users regarding password changes. When users attempt to manually change their passwords over VPN by pressing CTRL ALT DEL and going to the change password option they are able to enter their current password and new password. However, after they have clicked the "OK" button to accept the new password, they get an error message saying they could not connect to the Domain.

This is becoming a big problem, as many of the users are being locked out due to their passwords expiring, and a lot of work is being created for the the helpdesk employees. Any help you could provide would be very welcome. Even if you had some perspective on what exactly the issue is, I would be very grateful

I'm new here and had a (hopefully) simple question.

I log on to my companies domain through Cisco's VPN. Our policy requires I change my domain password every 90 days. How do I do this?

If I log on to VPN, then CNTL/ALT/DEL, then "Change Password", it doesn't seem to work.

My PC is not on the company's domain when I boot, it's a stand alone PC.

Any thoughts welcome!

When you have the corrected FTP account login information, you can then edit the login details that are stored for that particular site in the CuteFTP Site Manager. To make changes, first open the Site Manager (press F4) and then in CuteFTP Home, click once on the name of the site and then make the necessary changes on the right side of the screen.

A:change router password

Unfortunately, if you already set a password, you'll need to remember what you set it to in order to change it, or the router will have to be reset to default values. You'll find information regarding your router set up in the user's manual that should have come with it, or at the online website for the manufacturer.

That is all the help we can give in assisting passwords, per the forum rules. I will close this thread now.

How can I change password on router? I think that there are others using my wifi connectionPlease help!

A:how can i change password on wifi?

We need to know your router make and model number. However, you can access router settings from your browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome or whatever). It is an IP address and will look something like this 192.168.1.1 (although the figures will probably be different). To get in there you have to type a Username and Password. If these have not been set, then look in your router info for the default settings - often something like "Admin" with a blank password.The password above is for router settings access and is not the one you are seeking. Once you get into the router settings look for "passphrase" or "pass key" (the former being the correct terminology). When you find it you input your current passphrase and then replace it with whatever you require. You will then also have to change that on all devices that use it.If your security is high enough, WPA2 for example, then others shouldn't be accessing it unless they are very well versed in this sort of thing. What evidence do you have which makes you feel this is happening? Sometimes sharing the same channel with your nearest neighbour can slow things down (if that is the issue). Channels 1, 6 and 11 are usually selected to minimise overlaps. Routers by default just select channels automatically but that does not mean that they necessarily chose the best one. There is a lot to be said for manually selecting one where others using it show weak signals. Unfortunately Windows does not provide any indication of what channels are being use and by whom. There a little freebie programs that do this - here is one:http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirele...It also shows signal strengths on the same page and can be run from a shortcut rather than continuously in the background.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Not being able to boot the installation media from the BIOS sounds unusual, unless the disk/drive is faulty.

You should be able to press F8 at startup, boot to safe mode and log in via the built in administrator account (this should not have the password problem)

The next thing to do is create a new user account and see if you can log in with that.

Your wi-fi password needs to be changed from the router settings. Typically you can access that my entering this URL in your favorite web browser. Be sure you're using a PC/Laptop or your personal Mobile device that is already connected to the network to access this web address.http://192.168.0.1, then continue to log in to your Router with either the Username and Password that may be located on your router, or if it's a personal router you're using such as a D-Link/Linksys/Netgear or so on just leave it blank as you see it and log in.From there locate the Wireless settings and you should see your current Wi-Fi password and the options or blank boxes where you can enter the new password you wish to use. Apply the settings and then using the Acer Quick Access, enter the new information and it should have no problems connecting to your Wi-Fi.

Ive only ever changed my password there once before, and clearly that worked out fine. The whole site basically has secure connections (not sure if this is for ONLY the payment area), and unless you have a certain setting, will not display any other web address on the bar (eg, in the forums, site will still display www.runescape.com even though it probibly has more to it).

Hi there,
In settings, I get the following message when I try to change my password "service isn't available right now - please try again later". I tried again with anti-virus disabled but no change. It's been like this for weeks. Please help.
Thank you.

Hello,
 
When I try to change the local administrator password in a Windows XPSP3 client using Ctrl+Alt+Supr is not possible and get a notification with:
It is not possible to change the password of this account currently.
 
It is the local administrator and the PC is in an microsoft network domain.
 
Why this happen? Could somebody help me?
Best Regards and thanks in advance.

A:Administrator password change

Hi pimpo:
 
Do you have administrator rights on the computer or the network domain?
 
From M$ suggested method:
 
Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to perform this procedure.



To change the Administrator password in Windows XP
 
Log on to the computer using the Administrator account.


Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click User Accounts. The User Accounts dialog box opens.


In User Name, select the account that you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password, type a new password, and inConfirm new password, retype the password, and then click OK.

every month xp nags me to change my password and i only have two options change it or wait to change it. this popup comes up about a week or two before i have to change the password. if i leave the puter on past the time it has to be changed it forces me to change it on the next boot

my problem is that i want the puter password protected but dont want to change the password at all. this is a puter that is not connected to the internet and is only used for personal stuff.

is there any way to shut the change password function off without shutting off the password protection itself?

Yes, I know this question sounds like one a thief would ask. I'm not a thief. I've depended on biometrics on my computer to log on for so long, I've forgotten what my password is. My fingerprint scanner inexplicably stopped working, so now I can't log on. The account is the administrator account, so I can't change its password from another user. Is there a way that I create a password reset disk or something, maybe from another user?

I am wondering how to change the current password to my router since i have forgot it's password and am unable to connect from other devices such as my PSP. When i try changing my current password it reads "The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters." HUH?
 

A:change my router password

Just enter 26 characters in the range of 0-9 or A-F, and use the same key on any connecting devices. I recommend ONLY hex keys using WEP encryption.

Any reason you don't use WPA? What is the make/model of the router and all the wireless machines?

Hi I'm working on an image - 5.2 Change AD Password ThinPro to deploy to about t thin clients The clients conenct to a Windows Server R RDS Farm I've got everything working except for an easy way to deal with expired passwords nbsp I was considering using ThinPro 5.2 - Change AD Password the web based method but I havent been able to restrict internet access to only the password change website Although it could be technically possible for us to add firewall rules at each location it would be nicer to avoid that if possible nbsp I tried enabling the Allow Smartcard Login option and it works BUT it make the users sign in twice Once on the broker once on the actual host I assume this is because we don't use a gateway nbsp I think the built in password change feature will work but then users have to know what to enter in the domain controller field Is there a way to pre-fill and hide the Domain controller field much like you can do when configuring a RDP connection nbsp nbsp nbsp Thanks Dustin

Hi This is getting on my nerves. Does anyone here use Yahoo mail? I keep getting notification that I need to change my password. I follow all the prompts to change my password. I get the OK that I completed the change password successfully; but A few seconds later, I get the nag notification again that I need to change my password. My wife and I share a laptop. I use gmail and she uses Yahoo. I'm running W10 and have all the latest up dates This shouldn't be this difficult. I have changed passwords many times. What is up with Yahoo? Any advise would be very much appreciated!
PS I have heard about the hack into Yahoo, but this is ridiculous.

One of our boxes(W2000pro) on our LAN is configured as a simple file server. But every month, the damn thing automatically request a password change. The computer in question is without monitor or keyboard and is used as a file server on or LAN. It is very inconvenient to confirm the password every month (no KVM switch). Is there a way to configure W2000pro such that passwords changes are done manualy instead???

Since recently W7 wants me to change the pw of my homegroup very regularly.
Because I am the sole user of everything I don't want it to change: got the same one for 30 years now and it never harmed me...

How do I let the nag disappear?

Windows 10 automatically attempted to sync my email information when I initially setup my computer. The problem is that is has an incorrect password (I have no idea what it is or where it came from). I've changed the password every way I can think of, I've deleted the account many times and even restarted my computer to no avail. The incorrect password automatically returns. Does anyone have any wisdom to impart on how to change this incorrect password so that my account will sync?

Logging into my router with the normal 192.168.0.1 the log in screen already has the admin/admin in the username/password boxes. When I click ok it says I am not authorized and that is it, I go no further. I rebooted my router and also pushed the reset button on back of router.
I can't get in so I can't change my password.
I am using Firefox and have windows 7.
The router is working fine, but also for illegal users that have old password.
 

A:router won't let me in to change password

You'll have to do a hard reset on it. The process will be explained in the manual.
