Hello,
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

  25. If time stamped was 8AM 26th, 72 Hrs is up 8AM 29th. I would wait just a half hour more.
  26. Best thing to do now is Kickback 3 days.
  27. When Countdown has expired, New password will work to log in.

UNABLE TO ACCESS VERIFICATION EMAIL???
NOT GOING TO WAIT 72 HOURS???
NO $$ FOR MOBILE PHONE REPAIR SHOP???

TRY THESE SIMPLE STEPS.

After the phone has finished its factory reset it will reboot and you will be prompted to choose the desired display language.
After choosing the correct language please follow the next steps:

  1. Connect the phone to a Wifi Network (preferably your Home network)
  2. The next screen will ask you for the Google Account
  3. Tap the text field in which the account should be inserted until the Keyboard comes up
  4. Tap and hold the "@" character until a Settings menu pops up
  5. Select Google Keyboard Settings
  6. Tap on the 3 dots in the top part of the screen (or More depending on what Android OS you are running)
  7. Select the Help & Feedback item and select any item in the list that will follow
  8. Long press to select anytext on this page and click on Websearch in the upper right corner
  9. A search field will be shown (delete the text inside the search field)
  10. Type Settings in the search field
  11. Tap "About Phone" and tap 7 times on the Build Number to enable Developer Options
  12. Return to the previous menu and open the Developer Option that just appeared
  13. Allow OEM Unlocking and tap Back two times
  14. Restart the device
  15. Connect it to Wifi again
  16. Notice how you won't be prompted to log in the previous Google Account and instead the phone will ask you to ADD a new Google Account.

Understanding windows account lockups


Common Causes for Account Lockouts

This section describes some of the common causes for account lockouts The common troubleshooting steps and resolutions for account lockouts are also described in this section.

To avoid false lockouts, check each computer on which a lockout occurred for the following behaviors:

* Programs: Many programs cache credentials or keep active threads that retain the credentials after a user changes their password.

* Service accounts: Service account passwords are cached by the service control manager on member computers that use the account as well as domain controllers. If you reset the password for a service account and you do not reset the password in the service control manager, account lockouts for the service account occur. This is because the computers that use this account typically retry logon authentication by using the previous password. To determine whether this is occurring, look for a pattern in the Netlogon log files and in the event log files on member computers. You can then configure the service control manager to use the new password and avoid future account lockouts.

* Bad Password Threshold is set too low: This is one of the most common misconfiguration issues. Many companies set the Bad Password Threshold registry value to a value lower than the default value of 10. If you set this value too low, false lockouts occur when programs automatically retry passwords that are not valid. Microsoft recommends that you leave this value at its default value of 10. For more information, see "Choosing Account Lockout Settings for Your Deployment" in this document.

* User logging on to multiple computers: A user may log onto multiple computers at one time. Programs that are running on those computers may access network resources with the user credentials of that user who is currently logged on. If the user changes their password on one of the computers, programs that are running on the other computers may continue to use the original password. Because those programs authenticate when they request access to network resources, the old password continues to be used and the users account becomes locked out. To ensure that this behavior does not occur, users should log off of all computers, change the password from a single location, and then log off and back on.

noteNote
Computers running Windows XP or a member of the Windows Server 2003 family automatically detect when the users password has changed and prompt the user to lock and unlock the computer to obtain the current password. No logon and logoff is required for users using these computers.

* Stored user names and passwords retain redundant credentials: If any of the saved credentials are the same as the logon credential, you should delete those credentials. The credentials are redundant because Windows tries the logon credentials when explicit credentials are not found. To delete logon credentials, use the Stored User Names and Passwords tool. For more information about Stored User Names and Passwords, see online help in Windows XP and the Windows Server 2003 family.

noteNote
Computers that are running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millennium Edition do not have a Stored User Names and Passwords file. Instead, you should delete the user's .pwl file. This file is named Username.pwl, where Username is the user's logon name. The file is stored in the Systemroot folder.

* Scheduled tasks: Scheduled processes may be configured to using credentials that have expired.

* Persistent drive mappings: Persistent drives may have been established with credentials that subsequently expired. If the user types explicit credentials when they try to connect to a share, the credential is not persistent unless it is explicitly saved by Stored User Names and Passwords. Every time that the user logs off the network, logs on to the network, or restarts the computer, the authentication attempt fails when Windows attempts to restore the connection because there are no stored credentials. To avoid this behavior, configure net use so that is does not make persistent connections. To do this, at a command prompt, type net use /persistent:no. Alternately, to ensure current credentials are used for persistent drives, disconnect and reconnect the persistent drive.

* Active Directory replication: User properties must replicate between domain controllers to ensure that account lockout information is processed properly. You should verify that proper Active Directory replication is occurring.

* Disconnected Terminal Server sessions: Disconnected Terminal Server sessions may be running a process that accesses network resources with outdated authentication information. A disconnected session can have the same effect as a user with multiple interactive logons and cause account lockout by using the outdated credentials. The only difference between a disconnected session and a user who is logged onto multiple computers is that the source of the lockout comes from a single computer that is running Terminal Services.

* Service accounts: By default, most computer services are configured to start in the security context of the Local System account. However, you can manually configure a service to use a specific user account and password. If you configure a service to start with a specific user account and that accounts password is changed, the service logon property must be updated with the new password or that service may lock out the account.

noteNote
You can use the System Information tool to create a list of services and the accounts that were used to start them. To start the System Information tool, click Start, click Run, type winmsd, and then click OK.

Other Potential Issues

Some additional considerations regarding account lockout are described in the following sections.
Account Lockout for Remote Connections

The account lockout feature that is discussed in this paper is independent of the account lockout feature for remote connections, such as in the Routing and Remote Access service and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). These services and programs may provide their own unrelated account lockout features.
Internet Information Services

By default, IIS uses a token-caching mechanism that locally caches user account authentication information. If lockouts are limited to users who try to gain access to Exchange mailboxes through Outlook Web Access and IIS, you can resolve the lockout by resetting the IIS token cache. For more information, see "Mailbox Access via OWA Depends on IIS Token Cache" in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
MSN Messenger and Microsoft Outlook

If a user changes their domain password through Microsoft Outlook and the computer is running MSN Messenger, the client may become locked out.

In this case, since the user has multiple devices connected to the exchange at given time , if he changes the password without disconnecting the other deivices. The account would get locked. You can inform him disconnect all the devices from the exchange except for one machine to change the paswword and then reconnect other devices with new creditentials.

I purchased kaspersky lab 2014 Kaspersky Internet Security. Installed program and asked password before the activation code. What will the password be??


It depends on your operating system. On Windows Vista or 7 you will get the 'User Account Control' log in screen asking for a password. Leave the password area blank and hit 'Yes'. If you are getting a different password screen, please discribe it.

Dear sir, some one locked my yahoo pasword how can recover my password


From Yahoo.

This message is seen when an attempt to login has failed multiple time. As a security measure, your account has been locked to prevent unauthorized users from being able to log in to it. If you have not recently tried to log in, this is not necessarily a cause for concern. Another Yahoo! user may have mistakenly used your ID when attempting to log in to their own account.
The lock on your account will expire 24 hours after it was first locked. Don't worry-the lockout time period won't reset each time you try to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to sign in again after the lockout time has expired. Note: Yahoo! is unable to provide you with the exact time that your account was locked or when it will be unlocked.
If you are still unable to sign in with your new password, please see the password problems help page for some common reasons why you are seeing the "Invalid Password" error.

First, go into the user accounts and disable the UAC and make sure that the user account is in the admin group. Then, change the default installation folder from Kaspersky to "/program files/KIS" That should do it.
