Locked Out Of Livemail

Aug 16, 2011

So I am helping a friend with her Live mail (Hotmail). I dont use it so you will have to forgive me. She forgot her password and it locked her out of the account. She has tried the passwords that she has written down and none of them work. We tried the forgot your password link and had it sent to an email of hers that no longer exists. Then tried to send it to her trusted PC but there is constantly an error code for some reason. Then I tried having it sent to another email address (mine) but I have to verify her Identity. the questions it asks are such as the last subjects sent, last addresses sent to, CC info, Xbox tag, she doesnt have Xbox, CC info on there, nor remembers last addresses sent to other than mine and one other one nor one last subject entry. When I tried sending it off the first time. Microsoft pushed it back saying "there is not enough information to verify identification" then I tried it a second time and it went through but it failed to send me her temporary password or anything. Is there a way I can get into her mail for her or a password cracker or something that I can help her get back into her email. She has been locked out for about 3 weeks now.

Locked Out Of Windows 7?

Feb 24, 2012

I just unpacked a new PC here at work and begun setting it up. I neglected to set a password for the default Administrator account and proceeded with the setup. Once I was at the desktop I connected the computer to the domain. At that point I logged off, switched over to my account on the domain. I started installing the programs which the employee required to do her job but because of the heightened security in Windows 7 I was not able to run any files as administrator. When I did try it said the Administrator account was disabled. I logged off my account and tried to log back into the Admin account and sure enough it's disabled.I've done searches in this forum and found similar problems but not quite like the one I am facing in that I never created a second account. So the only account that exists on this PC is the default administrator account which is locked out. I tried booting into safe mode and it still said the account was disabled. How can I resolve this issue?

Locked Screen And Log Off

Oct 22, 2009

I admit I did not do an exhaustive search but the issue I am facing is this.

When the screen locks, there is no option to log off the current user. All that is displayed is the password field for the currently logged in account.

I do have some GPO's running but didn't see anything that glared at me that I had removed it.

I am using the technet RTM x64 in our testing environment.

Locked Out Of Computer

Nov 6, 2009

I was trying to allow other computers to interact on my small router network. As I walked through the steps, I was shown my password, which I wrote down. Now, when I try to reboot, I'm entirely locked out of my computer--the case sensitive password I so carefully wrote down doesn't work. As I say, I'm locked out of my computer. It's asking for some kind of change of password disk, which I don't have....

New Username And Password Gone And Now Locked Out

Jan 4, 2012

I have a dell inspiron with Windows 7 that I got from Walmart for christmas. It came with a walmart adminstrative account, a guest account, and another user account. I Changed the administrator username And password, kept the guest one, And deleted the third account--- all through the Walmart admin account. When I restarted my computer however, both the walmart admin And guest account were gone and only the third account with a required password (which I do not know) and a blank user account that requires a password remained.

There is no open guest account. I Tried to use the previous walmart username password And the new one I created and neither work. Now I am locked out of my own laptop. I tried booting in safe mode but I still needed the aforementioned password..perhaps I did it incorrectly?

I would like to solve this without having to reinstall windows 7 os (but would like to know how to do that just in case). Let me know if any other information is needed in your assessment.

Locked Up While Playing Creatures 3?

Mar 4, 2012

I've had my computer and it's been blue-screening and locking up for months now. I've tried updating my drivers, and that helped reduce the crashing. It locked up earlier today, and all that was running was Opera, a game(Creatures 3), and an editor for that game. In most crashes Opera has been running, but it runs fine with most of my games, and on its own. Plus I've used Opera on my laptop for years now. I also don't overclock it.

Was always windows 7
Came pre-installed on my system
Bought the system on Black Friday

Taskbar Moves Even When Locked?

Sep 12, 2010

i keep my taskbar at the bottom of the screen, using Windows 7 64b, HP fully updated. It seems like occasionally I'll click on a folder on the taskbar, maybe accidentally drag and right-click, (I can't replicate how exactly), but the whole taskbar will end up getting moved to the top of the screen. I though it's not suppose to be able to move if the taskbar is locked, does someone know if it's a bug or maybe an option I can checkbox somewhere to prevent it from moving ever in the future?

Files And Documents Locked?

Apr 24, 2011

A few days ago I picked up a particularly nasty trojan that began running ads in my desktop background - Just audio, but still annoying. I tried removing it using Malwarebytes and Spybot. Oddly enough, since then, I've had further problems. One is the browser redirects randomly to spam sites but the bigger one is I cannot access my documents (music, video etc...) or certain folders in cFor example, I have a folder on the c: drive called work. When I click on work, it comes up as totally empty - no files. When I right click it, however, I find there are 193 files at 3 gb. My document folders have also disappeared. When I go to windows / user I find by right clicking that there are hundreds of files at 40 or so gb but I cannot find any of them by searching or exploring. I have made sure all folders are on general view (ie: not just music / video etc) but this does nothing. I now just want to back up my files and blitz the PC with a full reinstall

Locked Recycle Bin Inside?

Apr 4, 2012

I'm trying to resolve an issue involving a bunch of "illegitimate" Windows Live streams (discovered in a Stream Armor scan).In trying to resolve the issue, I've deleted several leftover Windows Live files and registry entries (after making a backup) that weren't removed when I uninstalled Windows Live a few months ago.For whatever reason, the files won't leave the recycle bin, and the streams are still active.I looked inside $Recycle.Bin and found that there's a locked Recycle Bin inside it. Is this normal? Can I delete it? How?

Changing The Locked User File?

Apr 1, 2011

I recently bought my wife a T510i HP laptop. She felt it was too big for her and wanted a smaller one. I took over the laptop, I had initially set it up for her and had named it as she had wanted turing initial set up.. Example: Computer > Local Disk > Users > MyWifethe mywife is the locked folder that I want to change to my nameHow in the world do I go about doing this? I will do a complete system restore if I must. I realize that I'd have to reload a bunch of software, etc. and my music. I don't mind that but am conconcerned that if that was the case in the restore that the old user name would be put back in.

Network Account Continuously Locked Out

May 1, 2012

my user account keeps getting locked out on my domain. It's happening about every 30-60 minutes from my IP address. I've checked the logs on my DCs and the are Pre-Authentication errors due to my laptop being Windows 7 and the DCs running Server 2003. I've tried updating my password and making sure I am logged out of every other server/PC/mapped drive on the domain. I've also tried changing my IP, just because.The strangest part is this happens when my laptop is not connected to the network as well. I will check the logs and my IP Address is listed as the offender.

Folder Locked; Cannot Change Permissions

Apr 5, 2011

I probably did a dump thing (only the 100,000th in my lifetime!). I backed up my working folders on my XP desktop into a zip file where the options were set to save the relative path of each file. I then extracted the backup zip file to my Win 7 laptop, not remembering that Win 7's folder structure is different than XP's. So I wound up with a new folder on the laptop "Documents and Settings", with all the stuff that was under it. So I was going to open it, move the files from (XP's) My Documents to (Win 7's) Documents. . . but there's just a weeeeeee problem: The Documents and Settings folder is LOCKED!!I have gone to the Security tab under properties and changed the permissions to allow EVERYONE full access, and it still denies me access. I downloaded Unlocker, but it doesn't show up in the menu when I right click the folder, so I have no idea what it's good for/how to use it. I can't delete it because that's not a choice on the menu when you right-click it.BTW, yesterday it had a padlock icon overlay on it. Today it has a shortcut arrow. I also have no idea why it's showing as a shortcut.
