FORGET password & key recovery

Help, please

Hello

In your Microsoft account. To get your recovery key, go to BitLocker recovery keys.

  • Or ask for help:
  • Ask someone with administrative privileges on the same PC to unlock with their key.
  • If your PC is connected to a domain (usually a computer from work or school), ask a system administrator for your recovery key.
  • If you still can't, you will have to reset your PC. Learn how.

  • How to UNLOCK the button "Remember passwords for sites" in Tools/Options/Security.

    I followed the instructions for the 'Password Manager settings':

    Firefox will remember the default passwords. You may have turned this feature off, or told Firefox to never remember passwords for a particular site.

    . At the top of the Firefox window, click the Tools menu and select Options.
    . Select the Security Panel.
    . If it is not already checked, check Remember password for sites.

    HOWEVER, the button "Remember passwords for sites" is blocked.

    Hi all!

    I really have a problem with my disc drive BitLocker encrypted.

    On my PC at the beginning (from 2009), with OS win7, I encrypted my external WD 500 GB MY BOOK hard drive.

    Unfortunately, old PC died:(et il y a un problème.)

    Now on my new computer with win7 OS or another, I can't access my WD 500 GB MY BOOK external hard drive?

    my first try the solution: I try to unlock the drive with my correct password and everything seems OK, drive is unlocked, but when I try to enter the disk I have the popup alert message: location is not available. J:\ is not available. Access is denied.

    After that, I try another option.

    try my second solution: In Control Panel > system and security > BitLocker Drive Encriptación I chose my encrypted disk and try to decrypt the drive. After maybe 7 hours and 99 percent, I got a pop-up message with the error. I don't remember now exactly how was the message.

    Now, when I log on windows, on another device (laptop) when I attach my WD 500 GB MY BOOKoutside, drive in my computer , I have the following status: my external WD MY BOOK 500 GBhard drive is unlocked, visible and recognized as a drive J:\, but I can't access it.

    When I try to enter again the drive, I have the popup alert message: location is not available. J:\ is not available. Access is denied.

    Also, I have the correct password and BitLocker recovery key stored correctly the USB onmy.

    Help, please

    Best.

    Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

    Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

    Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

    Public share
    = network Public (as Internet Café) in order to reduce security risks.

    For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.

    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .

  • INS-06003: failure of connectivity SSH without password for installation with the following

    Dear all,

    I am in the process of installing Oracle 11 g on Redhat Linux 2 grid Infrastructure.
    I have installed ssh on both RAC nodes and when I run

    SSH - p7547 racnode1 "date; hostname ".
    SSH - p7547 racnode2 "date; hostname ".

    I get the date and the hostname without error on both nodes.

    But during the installation of the grid, I get this error message:

    INS-06003: failure of connectivity SSH without password for installation with the following nodes: [racnode1, racnode2]

    My thought is that it is because of the port has changed 22: 7547 but where them specify this port in the configuration of the CARS?

    I also get this information in the Setup log:

    WARNING: Could not establish a SSH connectivity with node racnode1. Reason: java.net.ConnectException: connection refused

    Kindly help on that.

    Kind regards

    You can have the file/etc/ssh/ssh_config, where the default port is set at 22. Replace with 7547 and try ssh racnode1 "date; hostname". If it works, then it contains the definition, you may need to perform.

  • Impossible to update, cannot unlock the drive, may not reach the store, nothing on the start screen

    Symptoms...
    1. After several months of work perfectly, I made a mistake (details below) and attempted to retrieve a previous Restore Point.
    2. the system always starts ok, and some things work.  However...
    3. some applications don't work anymore, for example, Logitech SetPoint.
    4 files Explorer remember settings and defaults to each invocation.
    5. various Windows settings have been lost.
    6. the Windows 8 start screen has only 'Start' and my login ID.
    7. I can't update the system or re-install the system.
    8. "change system settings" does absolutely nothing.
    9. I got error messages saying my system disk is locked and I need to unlock it, but I can't do it.  None of my disks is BitLocker on, and I can't find any other meaning of "locked".  The message is "the drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive, and then try again. »
    10. I suspect some programs of Windows 8 system are corrupt or lost, but the OS is clearly still Windows 8 in appearance and behavior.
    What I tried...
    1 clean the registry with various cleaners.
    2. checked with Windows Update, the software has been completely updated.
    3. the Windows troubleshooting diagnostic tool has not helped.
    4. the same problems occur in Mode without failure.
    5. always had problems after a clean boot.
    6 sfc/scannow (as admin) did not help.
    7. I can't do a simple Refresh or reset because I can't go to the store.
    8. out of desperation, I tried updating to Windows 8.1 Overview, but it doesn't have to say that my system disk is locked.  I couldn't find sort of the 'unlock'  BitLocker is off anyway.
    9. I downloaded the installation of window package 8, created an ISO file and burned a DVD.  Tried to repair and regeneration, but both failed.  Once more, the error message said that my system disk is locked.
    10. I am very reluctant to throw my applications, I have over a hundred installed.  In any case, I'm afraid that if I format the system drive, I won't be able to install Windows 8 in all.
    How it all started: I made a mistake...
    I installed the Gavotte RamDisk and then tried to delete it, forgetting that I needed to run 'as administrator '.  This does not, without saying why, so I removed with Control Panel etc.  Once I did, things started to go wrong.  Previous restore points did not help, and after floundering about in frustration and growing desperation, I ended up here where I am now.
    The system...
    1 MSI motherboard (Z87 - G43)
    2. 2 x 4 GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8)
    3. three SATA drives, each with two partitions
    4 DVD burner
    5 external USB floppy
    6. two analog monitors, one connected via a digital-to-analog converter (powered)
    7 keyboard and mouse Logitech wireless
    8. USB printer cable
    9 LAN with another PC of Windows 8 that works properly
    10. access to on and old XP laptop
    WHAT CAN I DO?  I HIT THE BUFFERS!
    The Solution
    ========
    The result was much better than I expected.
    If you take the road to Microsoft to fix the system, it offers a 'Refresh' or 'remove all and reinstall '.  These two failed because they require access to Microsoft Store.  However, there is a middle path to fix, as long as you have a product key, which re - install Windows 8 as if it were an 'upgrade '.
    The process is described quite well here:
    http://www.TechRepublic.com/blog/Windows-and-Office/quick-tip-download-a-new-copy-of-the-Windows-8-upgrade-ISO/
    In summary, download the upgrade of widows 8 components and create a picture ISO of DVD, you must burn it to a DVD.  Then, you use this disk to re - install Windows 8.  The great thing about this is that it offers keep your files and settings.  (However, as it is an 'upgrade' it does not provide the option to install on another partition.)
    In my case, it worked much better than I expected.  Most of the Windows settings, I thought were lost forever, have been restored.  It's as if she restored settings that he did not know that there :).  Instead of spending hours putting my system after re-setup, I was able to relax, take an evening away from the PC!
    Thanks to the person who responded to my original query.
  • Error: "the drive where windows is installed is locked, unlock the drive and try again" while trying to regenerate the system

    My daughters Toshiba S955-S5373 went all green, she says while she helped the battery out. I didn't know she was in trouble. We tried to solve; However, Bad_system_config_info appears before diagnosing and resolving problems. After 4 hours, nothing has been resolved.

    I found the DVD we created initially and attempted to load that. We shut down the laptop with the power and reverse holding F12 button. I tried to boot from the DVD, but it does not read the DVD and just crossed the initially to start and diagnose and solve problems. I have waited 2 hours, but without success.

    I turned off again and I just tried to refresh the PC. He said "the drive where windows is installed is locked, unlock the drive and try again".

    I then tried auto repair but could repair. Log file C:\Windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrao;/txt appeared.

    I even tried to reset the PC as a last resort. But the message failed to reset the PC required A disk partition is missing.

    Don't know what I can do. Can you help us?

    Original title: Toshiba S955-S5373 will not start

    Hi Annaed,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I can understand your concerns to your system and will certainly guide you in the right direction to solve the problem.

    Control bug BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO occurs if the SYSTEM registry hive is damaged. However, this corruption is generally unlikely, because the bootloader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when loading the hive.

    This bug check can also occur if some values and critical registry keys are missing. You keys and values may be absent, if a user manually change the registry.

    As per the error message "the drive where windows is installed is locked, unlock the drive and try again", I would refer to the suggestions posted by phanlon7 replied on 12 October 2013 in the next thread and check if they are useful.

    Have a laptop Envy M6-K010DX. Due to a problem of the internet while improving to win 8 to 8.1, the PC does not start correctly, and Windows Explorer will not load. Has decided to "Refresh" of the operating system and is gone to F11 restore utilities. When I go to the utility of refreshment and follow the prompts that I reach a message that says, 'the drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive, and then try again. "I was looking for support for the unlocking instructions and apart from some commands bootrec (which did not work - probably because I don't have a Win 8 disc) not much is available.

    The only access I have for execution of orders made by the tasks Manager command-line and F11. What is this 'locked' drive, anyway? Someone at - it any information on that?

    Hello Lara.

    IF you have updated from 8 to 8.1 and the process was interrupted during installation, this may damage the disc and therefore locked error. "Refreshing" the system would not be the answer that you need to clean install Windows 8 again. 8.1 update can break the bond of the recovery partition, especially if it has become corrupted as indicated.

    You must clean up the installation with the recovery discs, you must have created before you updated to 8.1.

    In addition, if you do not have the recovery disks, you can buy a set of HP or install a regular copy of Windows 8 and then update the drivers manually. HP has the Windows key now integrated into the bios.

    This forum is used on a voluntary basis and is not maintained by the HP Support for substitution of contact.

    Your message looks like not it was even 24 hours old before you decided to delete it from the original computer?

    I'm sorry to hear you had to do this.

    If you need to HP support, you must contact them directly to your country or region.

    Contact HP-Assist phone USA | HP® official site

    Good luck with the new computer.

    Any brand or model you purchased now, don't forget to create the recovery disks/drive.

  • Problems of the change of password for my iMac

    I'm finishing the change of password for my iMac in early 2014 running on the latest version of El Capitan.

    When the opening up of the procedure is finished, I get a message in the upper right of the home screen of the iMac. The message says that I need to enter my new password to complete the amendment of the code of procedure. I can either click on "enter new password" or "delete" message. I tried to click on the two, but nothing happens except the message disappears.

    It's all quite strange that I have to use the new password to open the iMac for use and it recognizes the new password, if I try to change the password once more.

    Can someone tell what I am doing wrong or where I need to enter the password to complete the password change procedure. Thank you!

    This problem has not yet someone can help please?
