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.)

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?

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,

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

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
-> 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 ( to upload the GPMC
result and the zip files, and then give us the download address.

I've been looking for this kind of option ever since XP, but never found it.

What I would like to know is whether or not there is a way for Windows to automatically reset its sound volume to a specified level upon log-off/shutdown.

It would be nice to not have my volume up at level 60 when I log onto my PC and get blasted by music in my face.

this would make 3 of the pcs less usefull and turn one computer (the sever) into a brick with fans so please dont tell me to change my account settings to remove the passwords

So I had this problem since the first time I upgraded to Windows 10.

In Personalization> Colors setting there's an option, "Automatically pick an accent color from my background". At first, I thought that settings only change the color to the current background I used. Well, I use slideshow background that changes every 10 minutes. That setting does change the color to the current background(wallpaper) color. But I started to realize when I looked at my friend's PC. His Windows 10's accent color changes automatically every time the background changes. Mine doesn't.

Is this a bug or something? Does anyone have a fix for this?

A:Windows 10 Accent Color Won't Change Automatically

Similar issue here, I'll probably create a new thread soon since this is old.

When PC starts, the taskbar will not automatically change colors to match my custom wallpaper theme. I have to right click and open personalization settings, then it somehow remembers the "auto change colors to wallpaper" box is checked, then it changes colors like it is supposed to.

I am not changing any settings after I right click and press Personalize. Simply opening the settings causes the OS to change colors. But it will not change them if I do nothing.

This is annoying because if I want things looking legitimate, I have to take extra steps every time I start my system up.

Using a local (domain) account to login to Windows

Using a MS Live account just for the purpose of installing Store apps

The first time you go to install a store app you are prompted for your Live account credentials. Once entered, the only choice is SAVE or CANCEL. Once SAVE is chosen Windows remembers the password and the user is not prompted next time they go to install a store app.

I want the user to be prompted every time. It seems earlier version of WIN8 allowed this. Can it still be done? I looked for a registry hack to prevent the Live password from being memorized but could find none.

I had to manually boot the computer and then remove the screen saver setting. All work they had open at that time was lost. I am using eTrust 6 with signature file July 28/04.

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

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.

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 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.

Can't you just log into the router and reset the settings?

If you don't have the password, you can perform a "hard" reset using the reset button on the back of the router, normally you need to hold this button down for up to 30 seconds.

I have a Panasonic FZ1000 camera that is wi-fi capable. However, I'm having the worst time getting the PC and camera to pair, as have many others. One suggested workaround was to disable "Password protected sharing" in the control panel's Advanced Sharing Settings. However, windows won't let me do this because (to the best of my knowledge) I would first have to remove the password from my Guest user account. I have tried numerous times to do this, but unsuccessfully. Here's what's happening: I enter the Guest account using its proper pw. In the control panel, I get to the "remove your password" screen. Here there is a field asking for my current pw. I enter the pw used to gain access to the Guest account and get the message that "Windows cannot change the password."

I have Windows 7 PC, and a Server with Windows 2003 server, I can map a drive to that server, the ID and password on the server match the PC login ID and password, so, with the Network Drive mapped to the Windows 7 PC, I should be able to change the password on that network drive. However, when attempting to change the password, I plug in the required info, network resource IP address\login ID , then the old password and then the new password and confirm, this process does nothing, the password change request does not go to the server. The server is not part of a domain.
We have never had a problem with this process until Windows 7. The Authentication security on the server is NTLMv2. On the Windows 7 PC, I went into Control Panel > System and Security > Admin Tools > Local Security Policy, and on the LAN choice set it to accept NTLMv2 responses. Still nothing, any thoughts?

A:Windows 7, network drive, change password remotely

Is the user account on the server set to "Do not allow user to change password"?
When you say it is not being sent to the server, how did you determine this? Did you look at the event logs on the server and/or on the local machine from which you are attempting to change the password?

How are you attempting to change the password?

I there a way to change the location of the password box on the Windows 7 logon Screen.

I managed to remove the Picture Frame on the login screen using instruction found on this forum months ago, but now, I am an assassin's creed fan, and I have changed the background screen to the Assassin's Creed Logo and would like to move the "password input box" down so that It does not end up n the middle logo.

Thank you.

A:change location windows 7 password box on logon screen

There must be, but it either involves knowing a programmer/hacker that crafted a program for you, or doing some intense studying of Window's inner workings and twiddling knobs here and there, heh.

Could that information you used to change the picture be used to guide you in a somewhat correct direction regarding the window position? Beware things can probably be ruined horribly if you twiddle with knobs of unknown origin . . .

My keyboard layout is Dvorak.
There is only one user on my computer.
It works fine in Windows 8.  But it does not activate until after I sign in to Windows.
For the login screen, I have to type my password in QWERTY.
Is there any way to have Windows 8 change the keyboard layout to Dvorak before login?

where do i find that MS account code to satisfy MS, is it in her computer some where?
It's normally sent as a text to whatever cell phone number associated with the account. 
Or a non-MS email address, if one was registered when creating the MS account. For example, mine can go to my AOL account if I want it to, say if the cellular service is down or I'm out of network range. 
It will be a 4 digit code. 

1. Get User password via Windows Password Hint
While you type a wrong password, the password hint will pop up below the password hint box. Based on password hint, you can think of origin password generally.
But the preconsideration is that you have set up password hint for user account password, when you are creating Windows system account and password. Besides, password hint had better can remind you and only you of forgotten password. The most important thing is that it couldn't like password, but has to be related to password.

As seen above, my password hint is email [email protected], and my Windows 8 login password is the same as the password of email. So when the password hint pops up, I could think of Windows login password instantly.
2. Get into computer with PIN code, and reset password for locked account
PIN code is a quick, convenient way to sign in to this PC by using a 4-digit code. If you have ever created one, this may be the simplest and most effective method for Windows 8 password reset. Totally two steps are needed.
Step 1: Sign in Windows 8 with PIN code
When you forgot your local account password in the login page, sign-in options is provided for you to choose. Click the Sign-in options, there are two options, Password and PIN. Choose PIN, and type in 4-digit code in the box. Then you can sign in to your computer successfully.

Step 2: Press Windows +X, and click on Command Prompt (Admin) and Yes.
Step 3: On the Command Prompt, type in:Net User <user name> <new password> and press Enter to reset a new password for Windows 8.

Command Prompt screen appears, input the words like the words in the red box, user name is iSunshare, new password is 12345, and then press Enter to complete the Windows password reset process.

Hope this of some assistance.
Unfortunately, I cannot go to recommending other tools, as first, these may not be allowed per rules. 
And secondly, we have no 100% sure way of knowing whom this computer belongs to, which is why many forums forbids the posting of 3rd party password recovery tools. 
I hope that you understand the reasoning of this. 

QUESTON 3...... I am seeing net pages that say she can upgrade to windows 8.1 For Free, is that for real from MS or junkware, cause this 8 program does not even have a start button, and is really
a lot of just distracting octupus options 

It's legit, however you need to download all of the Windows 8.1 drivers first, save to Flash drive or external (or DVD), then upgrade & before running Windows Update, install the drivers, beginning with the chipset. It's best when downloading these drivers to create folders & name each to what the driver is for (e.g. Video), so there won't be confusion. 
Note that many Dell owners are having issues with Windows 8.1 upgrades, Usually over a minor detail, but nevertheless, it happens often. Be sure to create a Full drive image & have the recovery media (the set of 3 to 5 DVD's that's supposed to be created when new). Or a Recovery Drive, which requires a 16GB Flash drive. There is the option to copy the recovery partition onto it for fast recovery, much faster than the DVD's.

Hi Everyone,

My son was playing with my PC today and since then, the password box on the Windows 7 login has a black background instead of the traditional white. In addition, the Toshiba Wireless LAN detector also has a black background. I have looked at the Ease of Use settings and nothing seems to be altered. He's only 2 so I have no idea how he was able to do this. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

I hardly even need a password for my puter. My online passwords are high security, long and complex. I really do not want to type those in every time I start. I do have a much simpler one that I've been using for the laptop.

I've even selected to start without a password, but it still asks for my Live pw. I've also tried cancelling my Live account, but haven't been able to so far. I would hate to give up my Outlook email account, and might have to if I cancel live.

But something has to give. If I can't get a few of these pains taken care of, I'm slamming it in the can and going back to 7.

Many of you may have used or heard about this trick By replacing Setch exe The Sticky Keys Executable in C Windows System with a renamed CMD exe Command Executable all one has to do to Change in Trick. Windows Miss Hit Setch.exe and 8/8.1 Password run an Elevated Command Prompt is hit the shift key a few times at the Windows Login Page From there it's a simple case of running Net User User Name Password to change a User's password Now there are ways to stop this from working The simplest is to set the system to disable Sticky Keys so that hitting shift does nothing thus blocking the load of the Setch exe The second and in the past not really practical or possible for most users is to setup the computer in a Domain so that a Domain Server handles the User Accounts and Passwords Given that very few people actually care about Sticky Keys and that only Pro Ultimate and Server level Windows distributions have really ever had Domain Access Capabilities it's been easy sailing as the Setch Setch.exe Trick. Password Change in Windows 8/8.1 Hit and Miss exe trick just worked I can report that it still works in Setch.exe Trick. Password Change in Windows 8/8.1 Hit and Miss Windows as ever though still stoppable via the aforementioned limitations but for one new hitch Domain Access is enabled on a low level the moment a Windows system is setup MS Account If the computer has only been configured with Local User Accounts then there is no change what so ever but with an MS account you will be given a Permissions Error if you try and change a password this way The short of this is simple If you're trying to be more secure then there is actually something to be gained from setting up Windows with a MS account The problem for most though is that if you forget your Password then you're more or less boned There is only one way I know of that can get access to a Windows system to at least recover a missing password in this case and that is to use a tool like Ophcrack That tool does work on Windows with MS accounts but just like with older versions of Windows a good long password will take a long time to crack if at all and may need large Multy Gigabyte Rainbow Tables to even have a chance of cracking The end of this is simply that all though one can still use the Setch exe trick to do many things Net User may nolonger be a viable option

Change content automatically and resize.

I would like to change the content on a certain part of my page. I found which does the job for 7 days in a row.

The problem with it is that the content is not the same size so to get the largest I might have in a weeks period, it leaves a lot of blank space for other days.

So I'm looking for a way to not have to change content manually on a daily basis but have the "window" for the daily stuff adjust to the size of the text so the text under the "daily stuff" would be in a proper relationship and not a mile down the page.

Hello all,

I have three e-mail accounts in one outlook profile. There's a default account of course, but I would like that when I input a specific recipient, outlook will automatically switch to send this e-mail from another e-mail account.
So, an option to define a default e-mail account per recipient.

It is useful, in cases when you manage your personal e-mail account and your corporate e-mail account in one outlook profile. So all my customers need to see my corporate e-mail address, while all my friends need to see my personal e-mail address. Currently I have to choose manually, but sometimes I can forget to change it from my default account..

I know there's no such option in the Outlook itself, but an add-on/macro perhaps?

A:Diplay Settings Change Automatically - Is This A Virus?

I'm not sure about this but i don't think it's a virus. I had this promblem a couple of weeks ago as well. My siuation was slightly different from yours. Everything went to super small size I could hardly reconginze what everything said. The internet and my desktop icons were very small. However after a while it restored back to it's orignal size. Wait a few days and see if it's back to normal, if not then ask someone else.

I have a small utility that I need to run at startup, but it has a password.

I have dragged the utility to the startup folder, so that part is fine for when Windows 7 boots, but does anyone know how to have the password input as the software starts, though?



A:Automatically Start Software with Password

It would be helpful to know the specific software in question and if it supports command line switches.
If it does it may be possible to alter the shortcut to say something to the effect of C:\program folder\program.exe /password

It would depend on whether the program in question supports this kind of switching though.
Or you could just blank out the password altogether if you just plan on giving anyone that boots the machine access to it anyway.

So I have this long document (604 pages) with a story that I'm going to print and bind into a book. I have now gone through the whole thing to iron out any misspellings using the spell checker and find/replace. Now the only major thing I want to correct is the italicising of punctuation marks following an italic word, especially exclamation and question marks, which is inconsistent throughout the document. This would be extremely tedious to do manually, so I have tried to come up with a way to do so using the find/replace command, but I have yet to find a way.

This is how I want it to look:

This is how parts of it look now:

My Password Box which i see soon after we open windows, is automatically filling.
When i click on my profile, the password bar appears and it is filled with dots (i.e, words when we type as password). When i press backspace, it erases. After that i am able to type in my password and log on normally. Is there any problem with my Laptop? Is it a Virus or something? Please Help...

And also, sometimes there is a problem when i type any word into the search box of my browser. When i type, it resets the cursor to the first line. It is not because of the page refreshing itself. I mean, Come on.. Do google do that all the time? Google doesn't need to refresh every time, right?

I have a Dell computer with Vista Home Basic. On many web-sites I can enter my user name and password and the computer remembers them. On one site I have had to change my user name. I deleted the old name - I think by right clicking on my mouse. I cannot however see how to reinsert a new user name. Usually if I am inserting a new user name on a new site I am visiting the computer comes up automatically with a note "would you like the computer to remember this". I would appreciate any help to be able to find the right controls to do this on the computer.
Any help appreciated.
Many thanks

Hi guys,

I have a question regarding XP. I am running an admin account on my computer which is password protected. I want Windows however to automatically log me in when it boots up. The computer will then lock itself automatically. I want it to do this so my startup items run when the computer automatically turns itself on at 6:00 in the morning.

Is this possible with a password protected account? Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Automatically logging in an account with a password

Hi Matt,

You can try this:

Click Start => Run, type in Control Userpasswords2, => Click Ok

Click on the account you want to log in automatically, then untick the box that says :
Users must enter a username and password..., click Apply then Ok.

Hi, I have not had a Problem with Vista until now, last night I noticed that I went back to my pc and my Windows borders are now a White like colour instead of being a metallic transparent grey/black colour, Ive tried messing with Aero and all those settings to fix it but still nothing, and also My window previews no longer work, I go to try and enable them and for some reason they are greyed out now, but they werent before. Can I please get a hand?? :/ Also I prefer vista over 7 :P

A:Window colours automatically change, and previews no longer avaliable.

Sounds like it may be a graphics card driver or the actual card

Type device manger in search. Then go to Device Manager and look for any yellow warning signs concerning the graphics card. Update the driver.

I want it to integrate with the default weather desktop gadget so that the current weather and/or time is reflected in my desktop. If possible I would like it to have a GUI so you can easily change what backgrounds/themes associate with each feature. I wouldn't mind doing the coding on this myself but I'll go ahead and say that I'm 15 and no almost nothing about building something like this from scratch.

1- Is it possible
2- How hard would it be to do this with all the features I mentioned
3- Is there any way I could do most of it (or any of it) through Visual Studio 2010 Express?
4- Better yet, could I make the app into a desktop gadget itself?

Plz, plz help, I just came up with the idea for this today and while it would be awesome to actually pull off I have no idea what exactly I need to do.

I've never had the inclination to try it out myself, but have you tried Rainmeter? I see many sample desktops showing the date and weather conditions, among the numerous other options.

I have a netbook with a 10.1 inch screen, and a 22inch LCD display panel.
When I connect my netbook to the display, the words seem too small at 1920x1080 resolution. If I set the font size to 125% or 150%, then it would be too big once i unplug my external LCD and use the netbook's 10.1 screen. Setting the 22 LCD to a lower resolution makes the text look very blurred, so that's not an option.

Is there anyway/script/program to automatically change the font size when I connect/disconnect the LCD screen? thanks!
