Windows 7 does not ask for password when password protected sharing is on.

Hi guys,.

I'm no stranger to permissions etc as I work in it, but it confused me after 4 hours of messing around.

I'm trying to make sure that when I share a file on my home network that windows requires a password in order to access what it is not doing.

The following conditions are true for both machines:

Are windows 7 Home premium

Have file sharing enabled on each respective network adapter

Are members of the home network

Are both on the network, called "WORKING group".

Assistant file sharing was turned on and off then to make sure it wasn't an influence, it is currently off as he auto-actions the user root folder.

Network discovery is on

File sharing and printer is on

I tried the two combinations of sharing folders public or not, but is currently disabled.

Streaming media is off

Password protected sharing is on

Tried the two combinations of user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers. (This is currently set to allow windows to manage)

So I won't list them the public parameters are not relevant.

I put one hand on my laptop remove 'Everyone' and 'administrators' only have my own authorized account which is be an administrator.

My other machine but I still seem to be able to open and access the folder. I tried to change advanced sharing permissions and security settings to exclude any group that can be let my other pc on the network but so far still no prompt for password.

I even went to regedit and apply the following on both machines:

1. Open Registry Editor (Start search - regedit)
2. navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
3. create a new DWORD value with the following properties: NAME: LmCompatibilityLevel
4 reboot your PC and try again to establish the connection.

Can anyone help?

Thank you people!

I think I've cracked the question:

I created a new account admin on my PC and the first time I tried to access anything, I got the password. I don't have it a second time.

I then removed and put in the passwords and then disconnected cache and back in and asked again the password.

I tried the same thing on my other account, but it has not yet requested.

It turns out that even on another computer, if you have the same username and password that it automatically authorizes for good once you enter the network password first.

  • Windows XP does not ask for password for a secure network, wifi not connecting. Says "validating identity".

    Have tried just about everything I can think of. computer is connected to the front secure networks without problem.

    More information would be useful.  Windows XP did not support thereafter until SP3 WPA2 wireless encryption, so if you have not installed SP3 and try to authenticate on a network protected by WPA2, it may not work.

    Assuming that you do not have SP3 installed, try to go into your wireless network configuration / configuration screen.  (There are several different configurations of wireless, including ZeroConfig, but we do not know that you are using).  All most of them save previous in a 'profile' wireless connections so that when he meets this wireless again, he knows how to configure itself.  Find the section of your configuration screen profile, look for the SSID of the router you are trying to connect, and if you see it, then delete that profile.  This will allow your machine to then reconnect to the router wireless with an open mind.


  • Windows 8 will not ask for password on wake up from sleep

    My Dell laptop since the upgrade to windows 8 Windows 7, when I close my lid does not go to sleep, or when I wake to sleep, it does not ask me for a password, everything has been reset to the default values, but I don't know why it doesn't work. someone please help!

    The solution, as someone else has asked this question also and got the correct answer - see . There is a new setting of Windows 8 on top normal settings in the power settings.

    Be aware that setting how long time should pass before asking to specify a password is required is a per-user setting, so if you need to change the default value of 15 minutes, it takes to each user created on the system.

    For me, I took me 1 minute rather than always for all users, as it is pleasant, if after an accidental sleep, a user can always resume immediately. But the foregoing I have a password.

  • Apple Watch does not ask for password

    In recent days, I discovered something disturbing.  If I take off my Apple Watch and put back on without having to type in the code 4 digit, even after an extra charge per night, it will not ask for a password after an hour or two and works normally.  If it's supposed to happen?  I couldn't find anything in the support forums.

    I got my setup shows to use a password because I got it last December.


    Hi Suzanne

    If you use the following settings:

    -On your iPhone, in the application of Eve, go to: My Watch (tab) > General > detection of wrist - on.

    -On your iPhone, in the application of Eve, go to: Watch My > password > enabled.

    -Also on screen settings of password - unlock with iPhone turned on.

    Then, after putting on your wrist, your watch will unlock after whatever you do first: unlock your watch manually (by entering the access code) or unlock your iPhone.

    Then, it will remain unlocked (including when the screen is idle) until you remove it from your wrist. When you remove your watch, it locks automatically.

  • by using a standard user account, when it is run as an administrator, system does not ask for password

    • I created a standard account for one of my children. He installed a program that refused him permission to run. I went to "run as administrator" and should be asked for a username and password to allow him to use the program. Instead he gave me the same error message access denied.
    • I then tried to implement other programs on his desk to run as administrator and they opened, but they ask me password. Why not invite me for a username and passoword?

    But the my administrator account has a password!

    Log in as administrator, and then set a new non-empty password. Now, repeat the test under your son's account.

  • Firefox does not ask for confirmation when exit/close with several tabs open

    I'm having the same problem as user here: (only I have different OS)

    When multiple tabs open, Firefox ask me never confirmation when I click Firefox close window button in the corner (usually accidentally). And I would like confirmation.

    about: config I have:

    true browser.showQuitWarning (it is marked as custom value (bold), default is false)

    true browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab

    and when I close Firefox (usually accidentally) I get window of journalist of crash that I submit usually.

    Update: claims of a member who never close the confirmation appears for only one Firefox window, only several windows of Firefox. According to me, that this is of people probably half of bad idea is not using multiple windows, only the multiple tabs.

    The-edmeister says

    All you need to do is use the Previous Session Restore, either the default value: House in the lower right corner or history homepage > restoration of previous Session. ...

    Thank you very much for the input. Indeed, I go to Options/General and together "when Firefox starts:" 'Show my home page' and when I click on X to close the FF button, then asked to FF:

    "Want you Firefox to save your tabs for the next time it starts? I click on "Save and exit" when I start FF, tabs are automatically re-open! :-) It's very, very happy.

    I never thought tabs will be reopened when the blank page is set initially. And I did not tried because I usually have several tabs open, so do not wanted to risk. For me, the issue is resolved. THX

  • The cluster Agent installation does not ask for password Agent

    Hi all
    I try to install configure the management agent on a few nodes of the RAC on Windows Server 2003 64-bit. I installed the agent on other hosts before, but not on clusters. Installation seems to be pretty simple, YES the other nodes automatically detects and installs on them. However, when I do the installation of cluster, I am never invited to the agent registration page register with the administration server. He's asking the host name of the server and port, but never the password. Then the agent installs and starts the service, he is never seen by the administration server.
    Has anyone encountered this before? Is it possible to save it now, or should I just try to reinstall manually?

    This is an expected on windows cluster behavior, registration of the agent will not be asked.
    Once the user installation must ensure the agent on each node manually by emctl sure agent \bin

  • Windows Vista does not accept my password (unchanged) but I have no recovery disk - Windows is already installed


    As the title says after using my laptop without any previous problems, suddenly I can not connect on Windows Vista.

    I'm 100% sure that the password has not been changed, caps lock, shift, caps lock Num etc is not active.

    When I bought the laptop, Vista was already installed, so I don't have a recovery disk.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This is the Information from Microsoft on the problems of passwords;

    You will need to borrow a Microsoft DVD from a friend, Recovery DVD a manufacturer without these special work options available.

    If you are unable to connect to Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you can use the Windows Vista System Restore feature, or the Windows 7 system restore feature.

    You may be unable to connect to Windows Vista or Windows 7 in the following scenarios:

    • Scenario 1: You recently set a new password for the protected administrator account. However, you don't remember the password.
    • Scenario 2: You type the correct password. However, Windows Vista or Windows 7 does not accept the password because the system is damaged.
    • Scenario 3: You delete a protected administrator account. Now, you cannot connect to another administrator account.
    • Scenario 4: You change an administrator account protected with a standard user account. Now, you cannot connect to another administrator account.

    Here are the different methods to reinstall Vista.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    How to change the Boot order in BIOS:

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.
