Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can't get my computer to accept my user password to logon to my computer; password is correct and is being typed correctly. I get that wrong username or password message. In addition to this, my computer won't load my personal settings...it shuts down after doing a "loading your personal setting" message--but doesn't load -- just shuts down but not off. I have been reading about other problems like mine only the others don't say anything about their username/password not being accepted. Should I buy the password recovery disk from Window Geeks? Isn't there another way? I have another desktop networked to the one with the problem. We are pretty certain it has the same username/password. How do I find this info.

  • Anonymous May 01, 2009

    I have a dell experion and I am the primary user of the computer. All of the software and hardware was loaded by me. The computer is protected by McAffee and all of the protection is working. However, i cannot log into the computer as of yesterday. After attempting to log in, the screen stated "The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." Never had a problem like this before. I also have a juvenile account on the computer that I can access, however web access is limited. Any idea of how to access main computer account?

Went to turn on netflix and tv says to enter a code. netflix account asks for my email and password but does not accept my email address


Go to another computer and straighten out your netflix account. If it won't accept your email click on "forgot user name or email logon" if you your netflix account is set up properly with an email account you should get an email with your correct logon name.

if Netflix does not accept your login name you won't be able to fix it on the computer connected to your tv.

Or if TV is asking for a code number it could be asking for your wi fi password .

How to Password Protect your Windows 7?


Is you computer safe enough? Does your <b>Windows 7 ask for a login password</b> when you start your PC? It should. If not, a logon password must be created as soon as possible. This article will tell you how to make a user login password on Win7. It is easy and usually takes less than a few minutes<br /> It is a big security concern if you do not <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-windows-7-logon-password/"><b>have a Windows 7 logon password</b></a>. Without a password, anyone in your office or home has full and unrestricted access to everything on your PC. Fortunately, creating a <b>new Windows 7 login password</b> is very simple.<br /> <b>Note:</b> If you're trying to <b>create a new Windows 7 user password</b> because you've forgotten yours and can't get in to Win7, see <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>how to recover a forgotten Windows 7 Password</b></a>.<br /> Follow the steps below to create a password for your Windows 7 User account: Here's How: <b>1</b>. Click on <b>'Start</b>' and then '<b>Control Panel</b>'.<br /><img src="start-control-panel-windows7.jpg" /> <b>2</b>. Click on the '<b>User Accounts and Family Safety'</b> link.<br /><img src="user-accounts-and-family-safety.jpg" /> <b>Note:</b> If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on the <b>User Accounts icon</b> and proceed to Step 4. In my computer, my win7 user name is Andy. So I click its icon.<br /><img src="click-on-user-accounts-icon-windows7.jpg" /> <b>3</b>. Click <b>'change your windows password'</b> on the <b>'User Accounts'</b> area.<br /><img src="change-your-windows-7-password.jpg" /> <b>4</b>. In the '<b>Make changes to your user account</b>' area of the User Accounts window, click the '<b>Create a password for your account'</b> link.<br /><img src="create-a-password-for-your-windows7-account.jpg" /> <b>5</b>. In the first two asterisk text boxes, enter the password you want to start using. Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your new logon password correctly.<br /> In this example I use my birthday as my logon password. But I advise you not to use your birthday as a new password because it is easy to guess. You should <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-a-strong-password/"><b>create a strong password</b></a>.<br /><img src="create-a-new-windows-7-logon-password.jpg" /> <b>6</b>. In the final text box, you're asked to Type a <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/windows-7-logon-password-hint/"><b>password hint</b></a>. This step is optional but I highly recommend that you use it. If you try logging in to Windows 7 but enter the wrong password, this hint will pop up, hopefully jogging your memory.<br /> <b>7</b>. Click the <b>'Create password'</b> button to confirm your new password.<br /> <b>8</b>. After creating a new password, you will be returned to the User Accounts window. Now you can see the user account 'Andy' has been <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-password-to-protect-your-user-account-on-windows-7-beta/"><b>password protected</b></a>.<br /><a href="http://www.windows7password.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/user-password-protected-windows-7-big.jpg"><img src="user-password-protected-windows-7.jpg" /></a><br /><br /> <b>9</b>. Now that your Windows 7 account has a password setup, you must use this password to log on to Windows 7 from this point forward.<br /> <b>Tips:</b> You may want to know How to <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/automatically-login-windows-7-without-typing-user-password/">Automatically Login Windows 7 Without Typing User Password</a>.<br /> <b><img src="create-a-windows-7-password-reset-disk.jpg" />10</b>. <b>Create a Windows 7 password reset disk</b>. While not a required part of creating a new password, I highly recommend that you do this. A password reset disk will protect you from the consequences of forgetting your new Windows 7 password. If you <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>lost Windows 7 account password</b></a> and you don't have created a password reset disk, you can use <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/"><b>this efficient and safe tool</b></a>.<br /> Tips: Not a Windows 7 user?
