Change of password

Aug. 8 I changed my password on a friend's computer. Since I got home, my computer keeps asking me to type in the password each time I go on line. I would like for my computer to store my new changed password and to remember it so I don't have to type it in each time I go on line!
My computer also has been very slow getting on line, and most times, acts like its frozen most of the time, to where I have to shut it down only by unplugging it.
I hope you can help. Thanks, Kay

The browser/anti-virus programs have nothing to do with your password. Go to Start>Control Panel>Users and you will see the options for changing the password, picture, permissions. Yours is a server operating system and requires a password. Servers are all about security. If you have forgotten your password you will have to boot to the cd and follow the prompts for the Windows password, boot to the Setup for the machine's password. Steve Medley

I kept password for my administrator account..but when iam logging the computer it does not asking password...and directly opening the windows...i wants to keep windows should enter the password on windows...


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

My computer keeps telling me to type in a password every few mins


I suspect that you have your computer set to go to a power-saving mode in a very short time and then have password protection enabled to resume normal operation. In the Control Panel, find the screen saver option (I suspect you can also get there from righ clicking on any unused section of the display and choose Graphics Properties and go from there). Uncheck the box for "On resume, display logon screen"; also adjust the wait time to one that better suits your usage.

I hope this helps.

Retrieving deleted history from windows Vista?


System Restore can make changes to Windows system files, registry settings, and programs installed on your computer. It also can make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files on your computer. Personal files, such as documents, e‑mail, photos, and music files, are not changed.



That is from Microsoft. I think History or Passwords and Form Filled items are stored in the registry, but visited sites are not. So a system restore may give you your saved passwords for sites but not the bookmarks to those sites

I am setting up a new HP pavillion. It has vista home premium. When inputting my personal information i must have chosen this computer is for business and not home.. how can i change this?


Ok, right click on the computer icon and choose properties, then click on advanced system settings, a system properties window will appear, choose the computer name tab and click on network ID, you can change the network ID to home or work.
The computer may ask to restart so that the changes are made in the registry

Good luck and kind regards

I forgot my pc login pass.


Hi

Don't worry my friend...I'm also quite forgetful...Try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8(tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck
