When I see such damage I pull the hard disk and clone it. I didn't set a password because this laptop is at home and for my personal use only. The error is shown in my original question. However, some silly questions first - are they all in the same Workgroup? Thank you for the tip. Keep tapping F8 during the early boot phase. I've been running workgroup networks of mixed computers even including Macs for years without any problems.
In closing, I apologise for the complexity that will be involved here and that no assurance can be offered. When tried to start it again, it asked me for the password. Below that in the left hand pane is Networking and if you set your network up in there, having ticked for no password, you should find things run better. I have no idea why. However, I then rebooted the computer after doing this, and the logon still appeared. Where am I going wrong? The owner is an elderly lady that I am trying to help out.
Note 2: If after keeping pressing F8, nothing happens. So I put a windows 7 installation disk into my computer and did some none sense things. I can't do anything that would jeopardize that. Also, are you using any firewall? I actually don't even know what username to put there. First, if hte password is blank, it shouldn't be asking for one.
I have an interesting network problem. Double-click Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only, which is enabled by default. Everything was working fine for months until just recently the computer running Windows 10 all of a sudden asks me to enter a Network username and password. Open command prompt and Administrator 2. She had access yesterday, started her computer this morning, and now no longer has access.
Not the advice you probably wanted. It turns out that when I tried coming up in safe mode, yes the Administrator logon appears but now it too is asking for a password. Can I please have a reason why it happened like this and how to fix it? I turned on my desktop and when I click my user name, it now asks me for a password. When I boot normally and try to login, I don't think it's even checking the password. .
I use Windows 7 Ultimate. Select System Restore when prompted. You probably didn't bought a new computer. I try access the xp share from win 7 but it was not taking the password. Both xp machines can access the computer with windows 7. Does it asks for a user password or homegroup password? Yes, I'm trying to connect wirelessly. Except there's a few things I can't figure out.
There has been no one in the house since I've been gone, so there is no way that anyone could have added a password. It's my own machine in my own home; nobody else uses it. I know that she has never done anything intentional to set passwords. Normally I setup password auth, and use usernames and passwords to auth to a machine -- this is the more secure option!!! I am running Windows 7 Professional. The next step for me will be to put this into a script that can be used during login to backup the recovery keys for those laptops I've already encrypted. And I have had a lot of trouble with sharing folders over the home network. As above - suspending and resuming seems to fix this.
I think my computer has been infected with a kind of virus or malware. Hi I have bought a computer with Windows 7 and I put it in the same workgroup as the other computers of my family. All computers see each other and are accessible except now all of a sudden the Windows 10 machine asks for network credentials. Note 1: In Safe Mode with networking, your system display and desktop will look and perform differently than in Normal Mode. Windows 7 can always see Vista, but some days he asks for the network password, some days he doesn't and there's nothing that I can do to control that. I'm sorry if this question is redundant but I don't see an answer to my question. I can't figure out why it shows there.
Fortunately I've created another user with administrator privileges but I cannot reset the unset!!! Can anyone help me with this problem? So----------my problem is also not solved. The password function is turned off on the shared Win7. The actual article is about other issues. None of my machines have any passwords set anywhere. But for some reason, she is always asked for her credentials. Thanks for the link but everyone keep trying for me please.
