How to log in


A "log in" typically requires a user name to be entered, then you press tab. (The user name is NOT case sensitive, by the way, i.e. SAM and sam and sAm will all be acceptable if any one of this is your user name.) This takes you to the password dialogue box. You enter the password which is case sensitive. Then you press ENTER or you click "sign in." Your user name works, of course, only if you have a "user account." On home PCs, if there is simply a single user account for which no password was ever made, you simply boot the computer and anyone sitting there has access as well as administrative rights to switch around settings, even though neither you nor they are in the official administrative account, which is separate from the users account. If you want to sign in as Administrator, you must go to the administrative account rather than just powering up. You can find access accounts via the Control Panel.

If you do choose to setup a password, you want to record it somewhere off of the computer.

Bought from someone else need to put my nane on it


You have to make 2 changes, One for the computer and one for the user. Here is how you do both:
CHANGE COMPUTER NAME:
  1. Right click my computer and select properties
  2. Select "Advanced System Settings" (skip if win xp)
  3. Select "Computer Name" tab
  4. click "change"
  5. Enter the name of your choice
CHANGE USER NAME:
You cannot change a user account by just changing the name. Just changing the name will make a cosmetic change only and not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile.

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

If you wish to log into your new, corrected account automatically, do this:Start Orb>Search box>type: netplwiz [enter]
Click on Continue (or supply an administrator's password) when prompted by UAC

Uncheck the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to automatically log on by clicking on the desired account to highlight it and then hit OK. Enter the correct password for that user account (if there is one) when prompted. Leave it blank if there is no password (null).

Aol will not help with new password


To access your AOL account, you need to enter some information.
First, you need to enter your AOL user name or email account.
Next, you need to enter the AOL password that you entered when you first created your account. Once these two pieces of information are entered, you can sign in to your account.
However, if you have forgotten or lost your AOL password, you won't be able to access your account until you successfully reset your password.

Navigate to http://bill.aol.com/ and notice the "Sign In" window to the right of the screen.
Find the "Forgot Password" link under the "Password" field. Click the link.
Type your email address or AOL user name into the "User name or Email" field.
You'll also need to type the letters or numbers you see in the image into the "Word in Image" field.
Click "Next."
Type the correct answer to your security question in the "Your Answer" field.
Click "Next."
Provide the information for the "Billing Contact Name," including first and last name.
This is the primary account holder for your AOL account. Click "Next."
Answer the AOL security questions, which will ask for the last four digits of your Social Security number.
Click "Next." At this point, your identity will be verified.
Type in a new password on the next screen.
You'll need to retype the password to confirm.
Click "Next" and then click "Continue."
At this point, you will be able to sign in to your account using the new password you created.

My outlook express email will not send and recieve emails i have entered the correct account settings i cannot activate my email.


Check if you did it well first checking this link:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/using/howto/oe/setup.mspx

After that be sure about your the NAMES of your mail server (POP3 incomming - SMTP outgoing)
Also check your name account and password.

Verify that (name and pass) with your internet provider.

If still no working ask to your internet provider to check with you your settings, or assign a new password to your account (normally reseting the pass by your provider fix the problem).

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Running Mac Os X 10.4.11 my finder keeps resetting by itself


  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Open Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities).
  3. Type the following commands, each on a single line and followed by Return (enter an admin password when prompted):

sudo dscl . create /Groups/username GroupMembership username

sudo dscl . change /Groups/username RecordName username _username
Replace the italicized "username" with your account username (which is also the name of the user's Home folder, in the Users folder). Remember to include the underscore "_" before your user name in the second command.
If you have more than one account on the computer affected by this issue, you should run these two commands again for each account, substituting with the appropriate user name each time.
