Finger print


Good question. First off, I would never use a fingerprint reader for security anyways. They send your fingerprints off to the feds when you sign up (by force) to use that reader. Ask someone else if you weren't quite ummm... if you made the mistake of using that device. (Yes my laptop has one and no I never activated it as it was pointless) Maybe another tech can help you that has used that before.

I don't know how to use the finger recognition on my toshiba satellite , please help


Hello there!

Take note that for security-minded individuals, some Toshiba laptops can feature a fingerprint reader. This is incredibly more secure than facial recognition. You are the only person the world with your fingerprints. As long as you keep all your fingers on your hands, using the fingerprint reader is a secure way to logon to your laptop. A fingerprint reader is accurate and almost impossible to deceive, unlike facial recognition software. The convenience offered by the Toshiba fingerprint reader does not add any security risks. You can simply place a finger on the reader and access your user account.

There is several ways on how to set it up and it depends on the model. May I ask, what is the model of your Toshiba laptop?

Regards,

HAVEA TOSHIBA LAPTOP WITH A FINGERPRINT IDENTIFIER TO OPEN WINDOWS, WANT TO CHANGE THE FINGERPRINT TO MY DAUGHTERS. HOW DO WE ACCESS THIS?


dentifying the fingerprint readerA fingerprint reader provides extra security for the PC. The VeriSoft Access Manager by Bioscrypt uses the fingerprint reader to identify the user, and controls access to Windows or other secure systems. Instead of typing a User ID and password, you can move your finger across a sensor to logon or start commonly used applications. Verisoft Access Manager can manage all of your different secure accounts and the required user names and passwords by recognizing your fingerprint.On HP notebook PCs, the fingerprint reader is a small metallic sensor located near the keyboard or display. By swiping your finger perpendicular to the metallic sensor you can logon to the PC, a network, or open a program. c00897920.gifBefore you can use the fingerprint reader, you must set up the fingerprint reader by registering your fingerprint with the Access Manager. Set up the fingerprint reader To set up the fingerprint reader to recognize a user, the user must have a logon account on the PC and the account must have a password. Multiple users can be registered for the fingerprint reader if each has their own user account.
  1. In Windows, double-click the VeriSoft Access Manager icon c00897921.gif in the notification area of the taskbar to open the My Identity window. Alternately, click Start > All programs > Verisoft > My Identity .
  2. Click Log On to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
  3. Enter the User's Windows password in the Password field on the Introduce Yourself page, and click Next . If you have successfully logged on to Windows, click Finish to close the wizard.
  4. Click Register Fingerprints on the My Identity window, to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin. c00897922.gif
  5. Select a finger shown on the hand graphic, and then slowly swipe your finger across the sensor. One of the squares below the hand graphic will change color when the scan is accepted. A message displays if the scan is not accepted.
  6. Swipe the same finger across the sensor again until all four squares change color, then clickNext to register the finger print. If you need to start over during the fingerprint registration process, right-click the highlighted finger on the screen and then click Start Over .
  7. If prompted to register a second fingerprint, click a different finger on the hand graphic, and then repeat steps 5 and 6.
  8. After using the Registration Wizard to registered at least 2 fingers, click Finish .
  9. To set up the fingerprint reader for a different Windows user, log on to Windows as that user and then repeat steps 1 through 8.

Fingerprint reader activated and has me locked out after reboot


hi

here are some steps to disable finger print reader..


The easiest way to disable the Microsoft Fingerprint Reader’s default operation is to rename the highest level program file.


To do this, the DPAgnt.exe program must first be terminated.


Step 1: Press Control-Alt-Delete, so the Windows Task Manager comes up.

Step 2: From the Windows Task Manager, click on the “Processes” tab.

Step 3: Find and highlight DPAgnt.exe by clicking on it.


Step 4: Right click on DPAgnt.exe, and click on the “End Process” menu, as seen below.


Next, you have to rename the DPAgnt.exe program so it won’t be loaded at boot up time. The Microsoft Fingerprint Reader’s program and driver files are located in the “C:\Program Files\DigitalPersona\Bin” folder on a Windows XP Home or Pro hard disk.

Step 5: Click on the “My Computer” icon on your desktop.

Step 6: Type into the “Address” bar input area, and enter “c:\Program Files\DigitalPersona\Bin”

and hit return.

Step 7: Single click on DPAgnt.exe

Step 8: Right click on DPAgnt.exe. Then click “Rename” from the popup menu.

Step 9: Change the filename from DPAgnt.exe to DPAgnt-BAK.exe.

i hope you do it....

please rate me

thank you.

Fingerprint reader


did you setup the finger print reader before?

Here's what you have to do...

Sign in to windows using your finger print, once your able to sign in then you may have to reconfigure the finger print utility. there should be an icon at the bottom right hand side of the screen or go to all programs or under the control panel. it should be in there.

if you were able to set it up before, you should be able to change it again.

Lay your finger flat down, with the first section of your finger above the reader, then keeping it totally flat, gently but firmly and slowly, glide it across the reader, moving it toward your right side after you have ran it across, as make an "L" shape. Be sure to go slow, and keep it flat.
