XP is demanding a password I have ever had.

I downloaded Acronis of Seagate to make a backup of my hard drive XP clone.  The old cloned drive is demanding a password to start XP.  I've never had a password.  A Norton rescue disk does not work.  I can't even in XP safe mode. Can someone help me?

  • cannot open a Windows logon after restart, request admin password I've ever had

    After defragmentation, updates, virus scans, I restarted my computer and now I can not get connected.  He is Administrator and password.  It has never been set to my knowledge and I don't know how to get connected.

    See if you can type your normal user account name to change the name of the administrator account.

    If this is not the case, the built-in account named administrator does not have a password.  Just press the enter key.

    Hi joej49728017,

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused. But it's all just because Adobe Acrobat 7.0 is a stale version & now the activation server so that there is no.

    Please refer to the following KB doc.  Error: "Activation Server is not available. CS2, Acrobat 7, pass a hearing 3

    The link above will help you to install a special version that doesn't require activation.

    In case you still need assistance, please let us know. We will be more than happy to help you.

    Kind regards

  • my computer says user is owner and demand a password that I don't have.

    original title: signature distressed

    Hi, I have Windows XP. I've never used a password. When I start it up it opens just windows. Yesterday, we had high speed internet installed. The installation program could not make it work so he called Qwest and they needed him to do something. Now my computer says user is owner and demand a password that I don't have. Qwest says it's our problem. What can I do? Thank you

    Try to connect under the built-in Administrator account.  You will then be able to change or remove the password and/or create other users:

  • I'm suddenly demand a password on my Vista PC.

    I'm suddenly demand a password on my Vista PC. I have NOT set a password. -What happened? I'm unable to open a session and I can't boot from my CDROM (I tried to change the BIOS F12, etc.) to use 3rd party software. What I can do and why did this happen. I am the user onky on this machine.

    Karen,

    I would say you fix your computer, or go to the recovery partition, but you will that you can not do without a password to logon. So, take your computer to a reputable computer repair workshop, as it seems that your computer is infected with a virus or malware.

    They will most likely have to reinstall the operating system.

    Sincerely,

    Marilyn

  • The installation of some software requires admin password I've ever used

    Installation of some software requires the admin password, I've ever used.

    Until this two apps will not install on Windows Vista PC, without admin password.

    Ever need before and it's been several years that laptop has been obtained.

    Never needed before.

    One is an upgrade of the software that did not before.

    Any ideas?

    Installation of App still requires a user account to be an administrator. If you are not currently logged as long as administrator, then you need to switch to an administrator account. Otherwise if you are currently on an Admin account, there could be some problems as to what may cause this.

    Can you provide information on the following:

    1 when was the last time you were able to install something in your PC?

    2. have you made any changes to the computer?

    Thank you

  • If you say that you have sent me Email to change the password, they have not been received.

    If you say that you have sent me Email to change the password, they have not been received.

    Several times I used sync for tranzfer of information to a new computer and or updated computer!
    In the last 24 hours I've sent many requests for 'change password' for those that I tried did not work, so I can connect!

    You say you sent an email over and over again, but no one came to my email which is confirmed you have the right address!

    There is absolutely no evidence that you tried to send an email to me, I checked the spam, I even looked to see if somehow, it went one folder other then my Inbox, nothing has been received on your part!

    Michael Serota

    Removed edit email and public telephone for spammers robots do not find.

    You can enter the wrong email address. I tested 2 fake emails in the password reset page and received the green check mark telling me that the password reset emails have been sent. It is not a real confirmation that your e-mail address is used by Firefox accounts.

    This is done this way so that hackers and spammers can not cheat the system by typing many kinds of emails at random and wait to see if they get a confirmation 'this e-mail address is. So for security reasons, all the entered addresses electronic are treated as real even if there is no account that corresponds to this e-mail.

    Please try some of your other email addresses here and see if you receive a password reset email in these accounts.

    No I don't have this problem.

    If you do not know your iTunes backup encryption, then you won't be able to use it.

  • Connection owner password? Have not set a password.

    Connection owner password?

    I had just installed Windows XP, and when he asked me to set up users I selected the "skip" button.  Now there are two options - owner and comments, logon, but I do not have a password for one.  Y at - it a default password for the connection of the owner?

    Hi EPush,

    ·         Did you give the username as the owner during the installation of Windows XP?

    Try the following.

    Method 1: Keep the area of blank password and press ENTER to see if you can connect.

    Method 2:

    Step 1: Try to start in safe mode. Check if you can login as administrator.

    Step 2: If you are able to connect then to change the password and make other changes. Restart the computer in normal mode to see if you can connect.

    I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on my computer.  I have NEVER had trouble opening a document from this location before.  All of a sudden, I wonder a PASSWORD.  I went and created a password, but it does NOT work when I try to open certain documents only three 3 in Player-all OTHER documents are open without asking for a password.   I tried to reset the password and tried again to open these particular documents.  They are still not open!

    Then I "chatted" with ADOBE and they me logged onto the Forum and told me to look for an answer I was ANable to automatically find...

    What is everyone out there knows what I need to do to obtain a PASSWORD THAT WILL WORK when I try to open these 3 documents?

    ALSO, what is the URL of the FORUM ADOBE?

    Thank you VERY MUCH to anyone who can help me.  I have urgently NEED to see these documents today, 18/05/15.  Thanks again!

    This isn't true at all. In fact, the specific problem of this user has been resolved when they discovered that someone has added a password security policy to their files. See: How to get and use a password that works to open several documents in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC?

    If you add the password to your files yourself and then forgotten, then there is nothing that can be done using Adobe software, however.

    This can be done with Adobe Reader but is not able to apply (or remove) a security strategy for PDF files.
