Question about Microsoft Remote Desktop (V3H011652)

1 Answer

Remote Desktop Log In

Its my first time using Microsoft Remote Desktop and for some reason, I cant log in to my user account. Its giving me an error ...

"INVALID USERNAME OR PASSWORD".

How can that be since I use that "administrator" account and password all the time? It appears that i'm connected since I could see the login screen and my account name, it also displays the "Windows Vista Business" (the OS for the PC that i'm trying to connect to) at the bottom part of the screen.

I did the port forwarding 3389 TCP/UDP definitions, allowed RDC on norton firewall settings.... am i missing something ???

I'm Desperate!!!... HELP!

Netflix account sign in


Netflix offers users the ability to rent movies and TV shows through the mail on DVD or Bluray and also allows users to watch select shows or movies online using a computer or certain other devices.

Occasionally users encounter errors when attempting to log in to their Netflix accounts.

These errors can be as simple as an incorrectly typed password to more complex issues with the Netflix service itself.
Credential Problems

Many login problems are caused by an incorrect email address or password when attempting to log in.

This can be due to typos or other misspellings, or recent password changes that were forgotten. Netflix offers the ability to recover passwords and usernames via the "Need Help Signing In?" link below the login fields on the Netflix home page.

Clicking the link allows the user to recover her password by entering her email address, and also gives the option to advance to a second recovery screen if she does not have access to that email address anymore.

The second screen allows the user to prove her identity by entering the first name, last name and credit card number associated with the Netflix account.

Service Errors

Login problems occasionally occur due to errors with the Netflix service itself.

When these problems occur, a message appears that explains a site error has occurred, directing the user back to the Netflix home page.

The user should attempt logging in again in case of a one-time error, though site-wide service errors do occasionally occur.

Depending on the nature of the error, once logged in the user may experience problems when trying to watch movies instantly or attempting to edit his DVD queue.

Site-wide service errors do not affect the ability of Netflix to send and receive movies by mail.

Account Problems

If a problem exists with a user's Netflix account due to a failed payment attempt, the user can still log in but is directed to a page informing him of the problem instead of his standard account home page.

Until the problem is resolved, he will be unable to watch movies instantly, receive DVD or Blu-ray discs from the service and will be required to return any movies currently at his home to avoid additional fees.

Account problems can typically be resolved by authorizing Netflix to retry the last payment attempt on the user's credit card or by supplying a new credit card number for payment purposes.


Device Connection Errors

When attempting to watch movies or TV shows on Netflix-ready devices such as a Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 or Roku streaming media player connection errors sometimes occur while the device attempts to log in to the user's Netflix account.

These errors may occur because the Internet connection the devices use is not properly configured, limited bandwidth to and from the user's home or problems with the device-specific version of the Netflix service.

If the device cannot connect and log in to Netflix, the user should check the device's Internet connection and try connecting again later.

Change password


Change password for what ?
Use dos comand
The administrator account on a Windows machine is the main, root user name that gives full access to the machine.

Administrators should change this password frequently to avoid unauthorized access to the domain or desktop machine.

This can be done in the Windows Control Panel, or use the "net user" command in the Windows DOS prompt.

Log in to the machine using the administrator username and password.
You can also use an account that has administrator privileges on the domain or desktop computer.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Run" or "Start Search" (depending on your version of Windows).

In the text box displayed, enter "cmd" and press the "OK" button.
This opens the command prompt window.

Type "net user administrator <new password>" into the command prompt.
Replace "<new password>" with the password you want to set.

Enter the password again for confirmation.
Once you enter it again, the administrator password has been changed.

Test the new password by rebooting the machine and logging in with the new administrator password.

Administrator password to login not working


Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7, and its predecessor, Vista, offer a new layer of security that is different from previous releases, such as XP or 2000.
The earlier Windows versions treated all users as system administrators by default. With Windows Vista and 7, all accounts are treated as limited users.
The User Account Control utility provides elevated permissions when required and prompts users for those permissions.
You can control UAC behavior in Windows 7 so it does not prompt you for these permissions.
Start your computer with Windows 7 and log in as you normally would. Your desktop should appear, and any background applications should be closed.
Click the Windows "Start" orb at the lower left corner of your screen.
Click your account picture at the top right of the menu.
You will be presented with a window that allows you to make changes to your user account.
Click the link that says "Change User Account Control Settings."

Look for the User Account Control options slider.
The default option of User Account Control is to notify you only when programs try to make changes to your computer or you install new programs.
The option directly below that does the same thing but does not dim your desktop.
The "Never Notify" option at the bottom of the list eliminates the prompts for permissions.
Move the slider to the bottom of the options window.
Click "OK."
You may be prompted one last time from User Account Control to confirm your settings and reboot your computer.

Log in as an Administrator on Windows 7
If you've recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7, you're probably wondering how to log in as an administrator. In Windows XP, the administrator account was clearly visible from the log-on page, but it's no longer there in Windows 7.

Although there is an administrator account, it must first be enabled with the Windows command prompt before you're able to use it. Enabling the administrator account lets you troubleshoot problems with programs on your computer.

Click on the "Start" button, and then type "command" into the search bar.
Right-click "Command Prompt" when the results appear.
Click "Run as Administrator."
The command prompt opens.

Type "net user administrator /active:yes," excluding the quotation marks.
Hit "Enter."
Click "Start," and then click "Switch User." Click the "Administrator" icon to log in.

Yes, it's probably because you don't have administrator rights on the system. If you can't be given them, another option would be to have the doctors save the dictations somewhere other than their user directories, like a new folder on the C drive called 'Dictations' or 'Shared Files' or some thing similar.

Good luck.

How do you reset your main users password if you forgot it?


If you are referring to the login passwords to enter the Windows login screen, you can reset the passwords by restarting your computer and entering safe mode by pressing F8 while it is starting up until if gives you the option to select safe mode. From there you can log into Administrator account and go to User account settings and remove the password for the user. From there just restart the computer and log into the user account and set up a new password if you wish.

You can always log in as the root administrator by pressing ctrl+alt+del on after you've reached the logon screen. Key in the user name as "administrator" and the password. Hope the password is blank.

Once you are logged in as administrator, you can reset your account's password using the User Accounts in Control Panel.
