Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Password Change Server Unavailable Right Now

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.)

First of all, SHRINK DOWN your fonts! They don't need to be huge!

Second, my guess is that you are logging in through your MS account -- and since I avoid that option like the plague, I can't help.

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

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

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

I recently suffered a trojan virus attach and ultimately have changed my password on my email server.

I have tried to reset it to the new password in Windows mail multiple times. It keeps reverting to the old password as the saved password, and I continually have to retype in the new password. I tried resetting the password to nothing, and rebooting, and the old password comes back again.

There must be a preference file or an ini file that I can edit. Can I do that without loosing my address book, etc.?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Trouble resetting password in Windows Mail to new server password

You might try clicking "Apply" before "OK" in the same window that you entered the password. (I'm guessing that since you are using Windows 7, your email program is Windows Live Mail, not Vista's Windows Mail, although the procedure would be the same anyway.)

Go to Start>Run, type services.msc, hit enter.


Scroll down until you see Remote Procedure Call (RPC), then look under the Status column to see if it is started. If so, you have a problem. If not, look under the Startup Type to see if it is set to disabled, manual, or automatic (It should be automatic). Change it as necessary (right click the line, click properties, then change it in the drop down and click apply).

Hi and welcome to TSG.
Here is a pretty good guideline for necessary started tasks.
Check your Services are Started on all PCs:
&#8226; COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
&#8226; Computer Browser
&#8226; DHCP Client
&#8226; DNS Client
&#8226; Network Connections
&#8226; Network Location Awareness
&#8226; Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
&#8226; Server
&#8226; TCP/IP Netbios helper
&#8226; Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations)
&#8226; WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations)
&#8226; Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic (or perhaps manual).

If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running. Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.

The trick generally is not the task itself but the status of the task dependencies that is the killer.
Again,welcome to TSG.We look forward to seeing you post up in the future.

Well I found this procedure that fixed this problem for another poster.

I found the problem. The RPC server is unavailable because the service couldn't function properly because it's dependancy (server service) couldn't start... I checked the dependencies through the server's properties and I looked through services and started those required dependancies to start the server service, once that started... Everything functioned properly. Sorry, didn't mean waste the thread. I just hope this thread will come handy to those who stumble upon it through google with a similar problem. xD

If you don't know to get to servces. Start> control panel>administrative tools>services.

Good luck

I've searched all over to find a fix for this problem and have no joy yet. It just started without me doing anything that I know of.
Basically, I can't access other systems on the network. When I try to turn on public folder sharing, I get the error "RPC Server is unavailable". WHen I try to turn on File Sharing, it does nothing but go back to the screen and shows it as 'off'.
So, I actually did some research and there's very little info on it in Vista. I looked at the service and can't see how I can even turn it on or's all greyed out. I'm thinking of doing a repair to Vista which I've never done but there's got to be a way around this. Even turning the firewall off has done no good.
If anyone has any ideas, I'll be very appreciative.


A:RPC Server is unavailable

Hi Paul

When options are greyed out, that can often mean you're not currently logged in with administrative rights. You can also right-click the system utility that you wish to use, and select "run as administrator", and provide the administrator password.

I know the following solution might seem obvious, but if everything was working previously (and recently), you can try Vista's System Restore - using a restore point from prior to your connection issues.

As malware has a bad habit of mucking up network settings (in the effort to enlist your PC as part of a "botnet", for example), it's a good idea to run as many scans as you can on as thorough settings as possible. Should you find (or simply strongly suspect) a malware presence, visit the 5-Step Security Checklist here at TSF ---

Should your PC prove malware-free, and System Restore prove to be either ineffective or unavailable, check in the EventViewer logs for entries that coincide with connection failures. And also view Vista networking setup tips from the TechNet folks -- Vista has a few things to look at that weren't around in XP:

Best of luck

Welcome, raindogs&cats. Unless the following words in this post miraculously clear everything up for you it will be to your advantage to start your own thread and describe what you have and what problem(s) you're encountering. We can then try to tailor responses for you.

To check on services: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services. Right clicking on a service will give some more options; the one selected above was Properties, and then the Dependencies tab. On that tab you can learn the prerequisites for the service and also what else depends on the service.

that was the last post i saw ... under the dependencies tab it says no dependencies im kinda stumped to what to do

After installing several WIN 7 updates I lost my audio, (Creative Audigy).
In checking the services, I found that when I try to start the Audio service, I find that all dependencies are working except, "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder"

When I try to start it, I get, "ERROR 1722 RPC Service Unavailble"
In checking RPC service I find that it is running.

When I disable the Audigy and use the Motherboard audio, I get the same result, no audio.

Anybody have an idea? I have checked many forums, even Microsoft, to no avail.

A:No Audio and RPC Server Unavailable

Hi Vamark,
If you have no audio at all, it must be the drivers. If audio works with everything else, I found you a possible solution from this forum:

While I am Taking a print out, the error appear show that "RPC server unavailable"

I am using XP operating system.

Can anyone tell me how to fix up this problem

A:RPC Server Unavailable while taking print out

Hi and welcome to TSF!

Here's a couple of things to try.
1: Go to Start -> Run and type in 'services.msc' (no quotes). Scroll down and try to find 'Remote Procedure Call (RPC)'. If it says stopped, click on the 'Start the service' on the panel to the left. Then double click its entry in the 'Startup Type' column and set it to 'Automatic'.
2: If that doesn't work or you can't find the RPC entry, post back and then we can try some registry changes. (I didn't post the registry changes yet because modifying the registry may leave you with a unusable Operating System which needs to be reinstalled)

Something I picked up from Microsoft
Flush the DNS Cashe
Start - Run - Type - ipconfig /flushdns - OK
So it will query instead of using the cashe.
Copy and Paste from Microsoft
How can I clear the DNS cache?
Clearing the DNS cache forces DNS to query a DNS server rather than using information stored in the cache. You might want to clear the DNS cache when making changes to websites that you manage, or if you're receiving repeated errors when you know that a web address you're typing is correct.
You must open a command prompt with elevated privileges to complete the following steps. For more information, see Command Prompt: frequently asked questions
Click the Start button
In the search box, type command prompt.
In the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
At the command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns.

I have a small network I run at home, 3 xp Machines, 1 Vista Ult, connecting to 2003 Enterprise Server. The server is only being used to run Apache, MySql, PHP, and as a file server. There is no domain set up. Only the Vista isn't from my MSDN Universal Subscription. If I turn off the server for whatever reason, once I reboot a machine, it's gone from the network, but will immediately reappear once the server is back online. Is this normal behavior? On the machine I work on all the time, I get the message Network is unavailable, you may not have permission, etc. It doesn't even show up itself in networking until the server is back. Is this default behavior when there's a server in the network?

I have checked The RPC service is set to start automatically and is running.  I've also checked that the registry files and they are there.  The event viewer has no errors relating to RPC (quite a few relating to WMI however).  I have

The RPC_S_SERVER_UNAVAILABLE error (0x6ba) was thrown by the RPC Runtime process.
Elapsed Time: 5037 ms.

I have checked the firewall on the server and port 6001 is open. I have tried awarding port 6001 to the server from the router. still no improvement. I am somewhat new to the exchange server scene so the tech net link above didn't make an awful lot of sense.

I have a computer on the network that has been on about six months. We are running MS Exchange on our server. When this one computer starts Outlook 2000, sometimes it gets on the network and sometimes it doesn't. Generally, the first time you try to connect to Outlook, it will delay and then give the message Your Exchange Server is Unavailable and give you the option to try again or cancel. If you close it out and get back into it, it will usually go through on the second or third time. The computer can always connect to the internet and will receive internet mail, just not intranet mail. Any suggestions?

I've tried numerous remedies from online sources (obviously using another computer), but nothing seems to work. Can someone please help me when they get a chance.

Please could anyone give me any ideas of what to try.

Thanks, Helen

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?

Thanks, Barend

I have often encountered the advice to use strong passwords. I want to change the system password on my PC but I don't know the procedure for changing it. My PC is a Gateway E2500 and the operating system is Windows XP, Service Pack 3.

I've checked the manual, where the phrase "system password" does not appear. It doesn't appear in Microsoft Help or its Glossary, either.

I know what my present password is, so this isn't a forgotten password problem. I am not talking about a user password for a user account, but the system password for the whole operating system.

A:How do you change the system password in Windows XP?

the user (admin) account is the full operating system unless you are talking about the bio password. That is the one where when you turn on the computer it immediately asks for the password.

Fool that I am, I have been the victim of a Windows Support Scam.

It is on a Toshiba laptop, running Windows 8.1.

Following my session, I was able to change my Administrative account password. But I am unable to change my operating account (unprivileged) password. Each time I attempt to change it, it does not migrate to the "change password" dialog box (it just looks like it is trying to do that) then displays the message that the password may not have changed.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello fellow Windows 7ers,

I have just had this problem recently that has been very frustrating.

Preface this with: I had this OLD password that I had set. During this time I had that password I did use windows' system image utility to backup my old 500GB drive to restore it on a 1TB drive and I did that while I had this password.

Now, when I try to change the password it will not save the change. When I change it, I can logout and it will accept the NEW password, but once I reboot or shut down and it comes back up, it only accepts the OLD password.

Any ideas? Thanks

I thought I was signing up for a microsoft account and did not realize i was actually chaning my windows startup screen now I am stuck at the start up screen and was so unnerved, i forgot what the password was. The start up screen just sits there with the 4 window panes and every time I enter a possible password it does nothing. What can I do to get past this screen so I can get into the system without doing a full recovery?

I gave a user a computer that another person had been using because hers died. I added her profile and reset her password etc and gave it to her. She soon noticed that she couldn't change her password, getting an error that it doesn't meet the history, length or complexity requirements of the domain. I tested this, and even when matching these requirements and using new passwords, it wasn't taking. I also noticed at the change password screen, there was an option for "other credentials" which I hid using this article:

I also deleted other unused profiles on the machine, removed and rejoined the computer to the domain.

A:How to change network password in Windows 8.1?

If you are talking about the Wireless connection, but she kept the same SSID, it should be asking you for the new passphrase, when it fails.  If it doesn't, you can go to the Network Adapter, as stated in that tutorial and change it.  Otherwise you can uninstall the Wireless adapter, which will flush the Security key and all settings, then reinstall again, and you should be good to go.
It will number the adapter one number higher, but that does not matter.  You can also remove the key, by following this guide.  Only thing kept in the registry, is the network connection info, not the keys anymore.  The keys in that file are encrypted, so it is not plaintext.

I have tried lots of different websites and nothing works! Please help! It would be greatly appreciated! If you are the Admin, you can remove account and create a new one. But surely better for you deleting it and creating a real parent controlled child account via Settings -> Account -> Add a family member, so you can take control on passwords and sites if necesary.
A standard Guest account is the usual old Guest account, only limitation is he can't touch the system

This is NOT about hacking or overriding passwords

I have windows XP home edition.

A couple of days ago I changed my windows password and the system accepted the change but when I restarted the computer it kept saying pw was not valid even though I was sure it was the correct one.
I went through a few manoeuvres to get by that problem, removed the password and reset it. Again, the computer kept saying the pw was not valid. I tried to set several passwords, always with the same result.
My pw included lower and upper caps, numbers and special characters, I believe windows should accept those.

Finally I reset my old password, the one I used to have before trying to make the change, and with that one it's fine, it lets me in. So basically, my computer only lets me set up one particular password!

Anybody knows what the problem is?

Thank you for reading.

Hey guys, I don't know if this is a question to be asked here or not but, I am in a jam right now. We updated all of our server passwords and for some reason one of them won't allow access.

Hi, I want to buy a Canvio hhd for password encryption but I have some doubts.

Do you know if the software encryption of canvio (I think PASSWORD LOCK SOFTWARE) runs on Windows Server 2008 r2.?

I know that does not put anything in the instructions but, although not put anything, I think the encryption password should work.

Sounds like the CMOS battery is too weak to hold the settings. The CMOS battery is a quarter sized flat silver battery mounted to the motherboard. You can buy them most anywhere batteries are sold. Unplug the computer before entering the case and take anti-static precautions. Also pay attention to the orientation (which side up) of the battery before removal.Upon first boot you will need to immediately enter the BIOS screens to reset values as required. Date, time, boot order, possibly others too. Removal of power to the board resets all CMOS values to defaults.

Hi. I've changed my password for my pc but now it won't login automatically. When I boot my pc it tries to login and fails telling me the password is wrong. I then have to type in the password and it logs me in. I seems like it has changed my password for the pc but not for the auto login. I checked my settings and it still says that users do not need a password to login.

Any ideas?
