It depends on whether or not you are working on a "networked" computer (like for work) or if it is a personal computer at home. A personal computer will either have an "administrators" login credentials or just "User" credentials. Unless you have set a limited number of failed attempts to "freeze" up the login this should not be an issue. But if you have.. normally a set length of time (like 15, or 30 minutes) will be all you have to wait to try again.
For the future: Put your kid on a separate account on the computer with his OWN login and password. THEN, should he ever forget it, YOU cann log in as the "administrator" of the computer under YOUR login, then under the Control Panel go to User Accounts and reset his password.
If you are using a "work" computer (logging in remotely) it MIGHT give you the same options, but if you still can't login after 30 minutes you will probably have to contact your Network Administrator to reset the account.
If it is a website you are trying to log into, and have been "frozen" out, there is usually a contact point at the bottom of the page where you can email the webmaster, or have a password reset sent to your email account (of record). This is a temporary password and you will have to reset it immediately.
It is for security and privacy reasons as set by the web builders. If you don't want this, you can set your browser to remember passwords and then as you log in, accept the option keep logged in. this will be the last time you log in using your password If you think this is helpful, help build fixya maintain this service by voting and rating me below
Starting point would be to turn the computer right off including taking out the battery unplug the power supply wait a while and then reconnect power supply and restart holding down the key that allows you to enter the BIOS. Reset the BIOS to default settings and then restart. If this works then reinsert the battery and hopefully this will fix your problem.
The Dlink router can be reset to factory settings.
Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the router
2. Locate the Reset button on the back
of the router.
3. Use a paper clip to press the Reset button
and power on.
4. Hold for about 5 seconds (don’t hold too long) and
then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
5. After you have completed the above steps, the router will
be reset to the factory default settings
you cant take the password off but you can log yourself in automatically so it doesnt ask for your password. basically just go on settings and then personalization and then log me in automatically. and that should solve the problem
what ever the password is for the wireless router when it was set up for 'wireless'. If you are using the wirless router you need to choose which network you are logging onto and then put in the password to get access to it. If you do not know it ask the person who set up the router what password they used.
Thanks for the background info, this makes it easier for me to see what you need.
You need to disable your guest account if you havnt already done so.
The user is logging on with a cached version of the logon information, this is useful for when the server goes down but not in your case as you need to prevent this.
Another worrying aspect is that you allow all your users to log on using the same password. Very bad from a security aspect anyhow. It is better to change at least every 30 days. If they moan they will get used to it soon enough.
Go into group policy again and computer configuration>windows settings>security settings>local policies>security options and look for interactive logon:number of previous logons to cache - set this to 0. If the domain controller is not available and the logon info is not cached they cannot logon to domain.
Group policy can be overruled at the client end if they have admin priviledges so you may have to set this on the client pc also. But you need to test to see if it is required there. I have not used that particular policy but it should be ok just on the server. Your users dont have admin rights do they? Anyway good luck. You can set this by applying it to an OU or domain wide but if you want to target just this one pc then maybe if you put it in its own ou and apply it just there.
You need to create new policies rather than modifying the domain one and keep each policy for specific purposes so that applying them to ou's is easier, ie internet options policy, firewall policy, working hours policy etc.
It could be Permissions problem, try assigning full admin rights to the person logging in on the local computer and then try logging into hotmail if this does not help:
You have to delete the local profile of the person who is trying to logon to hotmail. To delete the profile:
log on to the local computer as an administrator, (you might have to restart the machine before doing this to release any profiles).
-go to c drive, documents and settings, simply delete the profile of the person who is trying to log onto hotmail.
-Make another user or the same username, assign appropriate rights and log on, you will be fine.
NOTE: I FULLY RECOMMEND TO PLEASE BACKUP ANY IMPORTANT DATA FROM C DRIVE OF THAT PERSON'S PROFILE TO ANOTHER PLACE LIKE D DRIVE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE.
