Check the icons on the right side of your lower system tray and see if the fixya utility is there. if it is click on it and make sure that Run at start up and sound notification are both checked then click my status and then sign in. If its not in the system tray double click the icon on your desk top. Let me know if you need more help.

You will need to configure an email client (an application you install on your computer) to retrieve emails from your email provider.

Windows operating systems come with email clients pre-installed.
For newer versions such as Windows 7 and 8 you can use windows live mail (You may need to download it
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentials-other#essentials=overviewother)

For older version of Windows such as XP you should have "Outlook Express" (Not to be confused with Microsoft Outlook, which is a part of Microsoft Office)

After you decide which email client you would like to use, you can follow the email providers instructions. I'll assume for now you are wanting to check a gmail account since you posted your email address (Please refrain from posting emails on public sites when possible)

For gmail setup instructions you can follow this link to gmails settings page.

https://support.google.com/mail/troubleshooter/1668960?hl=en

Note: You will have to enable the POP / IMAP feature in your gmail settings before any mail will be sent to your client. All this information is covered in the instructions in the link I have provided.

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.

We get alot of drop outs with our connection,we host a chatroom & are wanting to know if that is the reason we get all our drop outs, even tho even when we closed the room it still happens.So it...


If you have seen that the connection drop outs occur after closing the chat room that might not be the reason. Connection dropouts may occur due to bandwidth utilization reaches more than the expected ratio but only for a poor connection. So you have to check your connection and signal strength as well as the bandwidth supported. Make sure that your ISP do not disconnect sessions which overloads the servers. You have to contact your ISP. Since you have not mentioned details about your connection and related devices I cannot say anything directly. Don't forget to include them next time. Feel free to contact again through this thread. Thanks for using Fixya!

Installed RAM not Recognised


It may not be a valid combination of sizes or speeds.
Look up your server at www.crucial.com using their memory finder.
They should have detailed information.
You can always call them or start a chat session if you need more details.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Can not send mail reliably with smtp.live.com using Outlook Expre


I think maybe you have your outgoing server configured incorrectly.
This is the information I retrieved from Qwest for an Outlook Express setup with a q.com address:
Incoming Server: pop3.live.com (port 995, SSL enabled)

Outgoing Server: smtp.live.com (port 25, SSL enabled, requires authentication)
So unless there is a typo in your post, you need to delete the pop3 portion from the outgoing server address. Please try that, and post back if you have further difficulty.
Refer to this link for detailed setup instructions from Qwest (click here)
I hope this info allows you to resolve this issue. If you require further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Need to get to OS on Dell servers. Password protected


If they are Dell they likely have the licence key sticker on them.
Get a Windows server 2000 CD(you can download it and it will be legal if you instal it with a purchased licence key.) and perform a clean install of it using the licence key on the sticker of each server.
