Lost pictures I turned on my laptop the other day and a screen popped up that said it could not log into my user id and put me in a temporary login. When i got back to my original login all of my pictures I have saved are gone. Where could they be?

They are probably still on your hard drive. It sounds as though you may have logged on as a different user even though you seem to have got back to your original login.

Assuming your pictures are .jpg format and you are using Windows XP, do the following

If you know the name of the folder the pictures were in,
Click START at the bottom left corner of your screen.
Click SEARCH
Select FOR FILES AND FOLDERS
When a new window opens, on the left side
Click ALL FILES AND FOLDERS
Type the name of the folder then click SEARCH.
This should find your original folder.

If you do not know the name of the folder, follow the same procedure but in the box, type *.jpg
Then click search. This will find all the jpg pictures on your hard drive.

If you still cannot see your pictures, you could consider a full system restore back to a point before the computer started giving trouble. It is also worth, doing a virus scan and some housekeeping just in case something nasty has found its way into your computer. I don't want to preach to the converted, but always back up your cherished data. External hard drives are reasonably cheap these days. Flash drives are even cheaper.
Good luck....

Most likely you are logged in to another account. When an account is set up, the 'files' are specific to that account, and can only be viewed when logged into that account, or as an admin login. Try the admin approach first. I'm assuming you are on XP?

USER PROFILE WILL NOT LOAD


This is way too vague a problem description to be able to even make a suggestion.

What kind of Laptop?
What operating system?
Any problems getting to the login screen?
Are you able to log in, but not load the profile; or not log in at all?
Is this after starting a machine that was off, after logging off and back on, or when trying to switch users?
Are you logging on with a local account or a domain/network account?
How many profiles are on the PC?
How much space is available on the HDD?
Does it load a temporary profile, or just error-out?

Reset my password on my acer laptop


If you know the current password then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Under user accounts select change password.

If you forgot the password, turn off the laptop then turn it back on and repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see SAFE Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. You will see a login screen with the Administrator account and the Account of the id that you forgot the password. Select the Administrator account (hopefully it will not be password protected). One you are logged in click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Select the account for which you forgot the password and then select Remove Password. Reboot your laptop.

Yahoo wants me to sign in every time i try to access my mail; how do i get this crazyness to stop?


You can have your computer remember your user name and password whenever you try to log in. You just need to do the following;
1. go to Browsing History under Internet Options
2. delete Cookies, Cache, Temporary Internet files and Password.
3. open IE or any browser log in using your user name and password
4. then there would either be a pop-up or a notification found on top or at the bottom of the screen asking if you'll remember the user name / password.
5. try to log out and close the browser and then open a fresh browser and try to log in and type the user name and password
6. select or put a check mark under the pop-up remember password

My sons friend put a pass word on his lap top user password but for got it can some one help me remove it is on a toshiba satellite pro vista thanks


Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

if you are locked out of your computer,then a password recovery utility is available for you
check this out:see how to recover lost password?

There is no room to enter a domain.


Hi,
I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Regards.

How do i change the configuration from domain to work group


even if you mistakenly joined a domain you can still log in through your existing id and password.
Once your press CTRL+ALT+DEL, you will see a login window with three fields namely: user id, password and Domain.
In the log in screen use the drop-down menu in front of Domain (which shows your new domain- most likey MSHome) and choose 'this computer'. After this, enter your old/existing user id and password and hit enter.
Please proceed to your system settings and change your domain back to Workgroup. Restart PC.

As you did not state whether you are using a Mac or Windows computer I am assuming you are using Windows.

Be sure your pop-up blocker is turned on. this is found in the tools menu. Also check to see if the pop-up blocker settings are allowing this site to run pop-ups. If this does not work I recommend the following.

I'm assuming you're using microsoft's browser. Go to >tools>internet options>browsing history>delete and delete temporary internet files and then delete cookies. You will lose automatic log on passwords and login names so be sure you have recorded them. Reboot your machine and hopefully these pop ups will go away.
