I'm running Outlook 2003 on XP

Today I changed my verizon password, so went in and changed the POP3 password in my Outlook.

Now I get the "Enter Network Password" box. I click the save password box and ok, but it keeps popping up repeatedly. The password and user namer Are correct.

I can send emails. I can't receive them.

I have tried to add another profile. I have also gone to microsoft and tried to troubleshoot. I can not open my Outlook in safe mode.

I have also made sure it was not my firewall or antivirus that was the problem.

My question:

I have the installation CD. Can I do a reinstall? If I can, do I need to uninstall it first? Will all my saved emails be gone?

Thanks

I've been using Outlook 2007 for a while with no problems. I used to select my account, and when the "Enter Network Password" box popped up it had the focus, so I would just immediately type in my password. I did a set of Windows and Office updates a couple of weeks ago, and now when that box pops up the focus is still on the main Outlook mail reader screen. I have to click the Password box to shift the focus so I can type in my password. Is there a way to restore this automatic focus for the Password panel when it pops up?

How do I stop pop-uo "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207. Running Office 2007 on Win7 x 64 with MSE for anti-virus.

I've three email accounts: yahoo, gmail, and the never used ISP's email all POP3 ... My Smartphone running Android also checks for gmail and yahoo mail.

Outlook is set for send/receive every 10 minutes. The oh so WAY too familiar pop-up box "Enter Network Password" appears intermittently and seems to be related to the Yahoo account's download/receiving process. I can close the pop-up, hit F9 to retry sending and receiving, and on all accounts all is well...for a while.

Then, it happens again....for a few days now. I increased send/receive to 11 minutes...no love.

Of course, I am interested in stopping this. It's happened before. I suspect 'changes' at Yahoo, with no more foundation for that suspicion than I have that Santa is on my roof ....still, I don't want to format C: and re-install everything only to discover that another day or two of doing nothing would have yielded the invisible fix and gotten me past all this.

Help?

and Happy Holiday
 

Answer:How do I stop pop-up "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207

As your Outlook does work some of the time it's near certain the problem is external, so changing account or other settings is unlikely to resolve it. I would sit on my hands and use webmail for a week or so, see if it improves.

Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails. I have already deleted and reset the account & have changed ISP email password so we know it's the right PW, sort of at a loss right now. Any help greatly appreciated TY in advance.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

Removing and setting the account back up was the right move. Some people swore a reboot was needed after this was done.

Just to be 100% on the password, try going to a web service like mail2web.com and see if you can retrieve your email. At least then you're sure the email and password are working just to eliminate the obvious.

I also read that if your mail servers settings are "mail.yourisp.com" for example, remove the mail.

Are you accessing the mail from multiple devices? That can cause an issue.

Hi,

I'm running Outlook on Windows XP. For some reason today it's asking me to enter my network password. When I do this, the same message pops up again.

I seem to be receiving emails fine but I can't send.

Outlook Send/Receive Progress shows an error message saying that my email server (mail.btopenworld.com) rejected my log-in and that I should verify my name and password in account settings, which I've done and they're both fine.

Any ideas why this is happening or what I can do?
 

Answer:"Enter Network Password" message on Outlook

Usually if your passwords are verified correctly. Then usually its a server problem. Try contacting your isp to verify that they aren't having server trouble.

I've been using Outlook 2003 for a long time, but just today, when it connects to send/receive mail, a window pops up asking me to enter the network password for the account (I have 5 accounts). It seems I have to manually do this before the mail for that account will be sent or received. What brought this on and how do I stop it?

Thanks!

Hit the road today and got online with the hotel broadband. Fired up Outlook '03 and downloaded mail from 3 accounts, no problem. Went to send one, and now I keep getting the "Enter Network Password" dialogue box. Never had a problem before, and nothing's changed. All 3 accounts had their pw's saved, and there are characters in the pw field (the right number of characters as well), but I can't send mail. Sent a test from webmail, and after a couple of tries, Outlook received it OK. Any ideas?

Hello. I'm new to the forum but not new to using the tools on this site. I'm running Vista with Outlook 2007. All of a sudden I start getting the "Enter Password" box. Very annoying. I searched in the forum and noticed the same fix that I tried. That was to create a new profile. I tried that and after four hours of downloading my emails from the server I couldn't get my .PST set up correctly. Anyway, can anyone direct me to the register fix for this problem for Vista. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all--

I'm running XP Home and Outlook (not Outlook Express).

I changed servers last week, and started having incoming server problems.
Now I'm getting a dialogue box popping up very often, asking me to "Enter Network Password."
I'm also not getting to my incoming (POP3) server.

Microsoft's help section and website are, as usual, useless.

Has anybody solved this one?

Thanks,
 

Answer:"Enter Network Password" box in Outlook

when you changed servers did you input the old settings into the new one. How is the network set up. Is your e-mail coming in through the server using exchange server or do you get the e-mails in directly through the domain.

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

JPG IMAGE - http://www.eightforums.com/attachments/f1/f2/22871d1370880908t-very-strange-bitlocker-enter-password-startup-screen-5jkippr.jpg

Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.


Any thoughts people?

Kind Regards

Bart

Please allow the Guest account access to all of the files on both the share security and the file system security settings.

You can start this process by right clicking the share and root directory and hitting the Security tab, then adding 'Guest' and allow entries, respectively until completed.

While you're there you may as well be sure that there are no deny permissions active.

I have three computers running Windows 7 Pro 64.  All homegroups and connections worked fine until recently (system update?).  Now the "Main" computer cannot be accessd from the other two without asking for network name and password. (I never made
one from the beginning!).  The two computers cannot "see" USB printer on Main computer, and when browsing for printers on theother computers, the request for Network Name and Password comes up......also my new Samsung HD TV cannot "see" my Main computer
(wired connection), but it can see the other two computers fine (one wired, one wireless access point).
I have read lots of forum responses, but I have found nothing that works.  I have checked all the boxes, including the one for "turn off password" in advanced options for homegroups, also, "allow windows to manage homegroups".....everything that

I've got a desktop computer with XP Pro SP3 and a laptop with both XP and Win7(dual-boot). These two computers are connected through a router in a network(desktop comp-wired, laptop-wireless). Everything works fine, except the sharing in Win7. From the desktop computer I can access all resources on the laptop without problems. From the laptop, everything works fine too, when I try to access the desktop computer's shared folders and printers, but ONLY FROM XP. Every time I want to do this from Win7, I'll be prompted for a "network password". I have no idea what I had to enter - I did a search over the internet, and found following suggestions:

-turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, public folder sharing at the Advanced Sharing Settings, and disable password-protected sharing
-both computers are in the same workgroup
-disabled the limitation of blank passwords in the group policy editor

NOTHING WORKED. (firewall might not be the reason, because I use Windows Firewall, and it's configured to enable sharing)

What username/password do I have to enter, or how could I access the resources without a password? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Windows 7 prompts "Enter Network Password"

I reached the limit of my patience well over an hour ago, and I'm praying that someone has the answer I can't seem to find anywhere.

I have three PCs: Hal, Falcon, and Athena. Hal and Falcon are desktops running 7 Ultimate x64. Athena is a netbook running 7 Home Premium 32bit. All of them played nicely with each other across the network, and not a single "Enter Network Password" prompt was to be found. From Hal I could get into Athena and Falcon, from Athena I could get into Hal and Falcon, you get the idea.

Yesterday, I reformatted Athena with the same OS it has now, 7 Home Premium 32bit. Post install, things went pear shaped. Athena can get into Hal and Falcon. Hal and Falcon can get into each other. Hal and Falcon cannot get into Athena. From both of those machines, I get an "Enter Network Password" prompt. I spent literally all day looking for a solution. I did not find one. I rebooted, I searched, I double checked all the settings, I ran a troubleshooter that said I didn't have permission to access the Share (this is the default Share by the way, the User Folder Share), so with my limited knowledge I checked the Permissions. To my eyes, everything was identical to the other two computers, and there was no reason I shouldn't be able to walk right in.

If you are using homegroup, it uses IPv6 and has known issues with some legacy systems. You can keep what hair you have left by enabling a workgroup (IPv4 instead) and it wont require a password.

Sorry if this has been answered, but I can't seem to find a thread that applies to this situation:

Just installed new router, linksys e3000. I'm on a Win7 box, wired, and connecting fine to the internet, and the Tivo and my ipod touch are connecting fine wirelessly. so far so good.

I can see the router via 192.168.1.1 from my BROWSER and adjust settings etc, all as normal, and as with old routers I've had.... again, so far so good.

The new router has a USB port, so I thought I'd see how that worked. Plugged in a USB HD to the port. The router recognizes it in its router admin setup pages under 192.168.1.1. So far so good.

Here's the problem. On the Win7 box, I go to "Network" and I see two things under "Computers". I see "WIN7PC" (my windows box) and I see "BOBNET" (the name I gave the router during setup). Clicking on WIN7PC I see my shared folders, as usual. Clicking on BOBNET, I get the prompt "Enter Network Password: Enter your password to connect to BOBNET (user box)(password box) domain WIN7PC "

I've entered every combination of user and password I can think of, nothing lets me in.

- I have NO password associated with my Win7 user name "Bob".
- I tried "admin" and the router password, as if I was logging into the router via the browser. No joy.

Answer:Linksys e3000 "Enter Network Password"

A quick Google and a look in the router manual shows quite an extensive set-up and control system for the USB drive sharing (3. Advanced settings P27)

the log in details may be Admin / Admin or admin / (blank), but in any case this should be settable from the router end

I suggest that you add an additional user with the same name and password as your win7 username (depending on the router firmware / OS you may have to provide a password.

Having the same user / password in win7 and the E3000 should make things easier

Hi! I'm trying to connect my Macbook to my PC, and every time I double-click the name of my Mac, the prompt comes up.
I've turned off password protected settings(both) and made Reading and Writing available for everyone on my Mac, and this prompt still comes up. I've used every password I can think of as well.
After many tries of turning the setting off, even though I've read you're not supposed to have to, I reset my computer, and even that did nothing.
Anything helps, I'm stuck in a rut and can't get out.
Here's a screenshot of the window if that helps:

Answer:"Enter Network Password" Prompt

If you are connecting to the MAC book you need to authenticate using credentials on that MAC book and not the local account being shown. For example, if I had your MAC book with a username of Josh on it I would click the 'Use another account' option and enter the following:

Username: ASHLYNS-MACBOOK\Josh

Password: {password that was configured on the mac book for that user account}

Unless you have the same username and password on both your Windows machine and Macbook you would end up with that screen.

In terms of allowing everyone access you would need to look into the share permissions itself.

Hope This Helps,
Josh

When trying to access my other computer on my peer network (both Win2K) the "Enter Network Password" box shows up saying "Incorrect password or unknown username for:" with boxes for "Connect As" and "Password". The problem is I don't have any passwords, I have always been able to connect without this password box showing up.

The only thing that has changed since I have been able to connect is that I installed a new hard drive and transfered everything over to the new drive. I am connecting thru a router but my connection is right because I can see both computers from the other in My Network Places.

Hello Everyone,

I'm working in Microsoft XP pro, Access 2002. I keep getting the enter parameter value pop-up when I try to open a form. I've checked previous questions on this issue, but their solutions haven't worked.

Background:
I have a new little database with one table, one subtable, one form and one subform. Every summer, we visit set stations where we collect certain data once (environmental data) and multiple GPS coordinates. After I'd created the table and entered all the environmental data to date, I created a second table to store the GPS data. So far, so good.

Then I made the mistake of setting a primary key called "RecordID" for the first table that was based on date and station. I related the two tables and created a form and subform for data entry. Once in the form, I tried to get the RecordID to automatically generate from year and station. But of course it wouldn't, cause then I would have to have a calculated field stored in a table, silly me. So, since I don't want to be entering the same data multiple times, I decided to use an autonumber as the primary key (now it's perfectly obvious to me why that's the recommended way to do it, after the fact of course).

I deleted the relationship between my two tables, deleted RecordID from both tables and from the form (it was never in the subform), and created a new primary key for the table, called EnvID. I added this field to the subtable and relinked... Read more

Answer:"Enter parameter value" popping up in Access form

I've only seen that come up when there is still a field somewhere looking for a value from the prompted field. If you look at the form in design view, you may notice a green triangle in the corner of a text box that means that it has a record source it can't find.

I have run a lot of anti virus software and nothing gets rid of (what I think is) the trojan.zonebac error. The only reason it is such a problem is the fact that when I open Internet Explorer, a window pops up stating that it is configuring microsoft office XP professional. I have to click cancel a couple times and then it finally takes me to the website. This same box pops up when I open Instant Messenger and Microsoft office applications. Any guidance would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:



Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:

(at my home PC).


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.

Any thoughts people?

Hi, i have a Dell Inspiron 20 3043. As soon as i turn it on im prompted with a message thats says Enter Current Password. I called dell and they gave me a password that does not work. They ran out of options to help bypass the password. I've taken the hard drive out and booted the computer and i still get the message. I'm completely locked out of the bios and everything. I even tried taking the CMOS battery out and waiting a complete hour before replacing it. Still have the message. Im out of options at this point. My computer is a paperweight.

I think you are referring to a BIOs password.
It's not so easy to remove these.
When exactly do you get this error message?
As soon as you press the POWER button of your computer?

Hey guys,

I tried booting up my PC which has Windows 8 installed and it was working fine until yesterday.

It has a "Enter Password" screen upon start-up and I think it's a virus because it only lets me enter 10 characters and even though, I do put in the correct password, it still says it's incorrect. The computer also shuts down after 3 unsuccessful attempts.

I have attached a picture of the screen.

Answer:"Your password has expired. Please enter your password and renew."

By default Windows passwords will never expire unless set by an Admin on a corporate network or set by yourself. Is it the Windows account password you are talking about?

If so the only help that we can provide for resetting the password is by using this tutorial - Reset User Account Password

I was told to post here, because it is most likely a virus related problem. One day out of the blue I start getting these "Enter network password" boxes. Nothing entered gets taken as correct. So I have to hit cancel, and a few minutes later its back. It minimizes anything full screen, making gaming impossible. It's a real hair puller, and it doesnt seem to have anything to do with home groups, or anything windows xp related.

What should I do?

Also I don't know if this matters, but it doesnt seem to have a process to find or kill. Can't see it unless you click the window its bound to, for example if I have a game up, it wont let me press anything if I dont click cancel before going back in.

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Now whenever I boot up I get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.

Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. (Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were before set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important.)

I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help.

Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option?

I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.

VERY MUCH gratitude.

Answer:"Boot Device Not Found" - but hitting "Enter" afterward PC boots fine

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Security Tab, Disable Legacy Mode and Enable UEFI Bios. Also Enable Secure Boot.
Go to Integrated Peripherals and look for Hard Drive mode, or SATA. Set the SSD for AHCI mode and not Legacy or IDE. Go to the Boot tab, Move SSD to First UEFI Boot Device. Save and Exit.

Have a new computer which runs Windows XP 2005, and it's been a bit of a rough road.

Lately when I start up the computer, the "Windows Installer" appears every time. "Please wait while Windows configures Your Sonic Update Manager." The next window that appears is Sonic Update Manager, and it says, "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert 'Sonic Update Manager' disk and click OK." At the bottom of this same window is 'Use Source: 1'.

When I click "OK" or "cancel," a message appears, "The path '1' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'UM.MSI' in a folder from which you can install the product Sonic UPdate Manager."

If I continue to click 'cancel,' it eventually all goes away. But it's annoying and I'd like to set things straight. How do I get this to go away???

I looked on my original invoice from Dell, and yes, they did install Sonic, but I don't have a CD for it. It may also help for you to know that this began after my ten-year-old son had me install Editing Software powered by Muvee for his Vidster video camera from Mattel. Could that have something to do with it?

Any advice would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Why do "Windows Installer" and "Sonic Update Manager" keep popping up?

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter and click on the startup tab.

See if you have these processes listed "issch" and "isuspm". If so, uncheck them, click apply and restart the computer.

I broke one of the "feet" on my old E-Machines PS/2 keyboard I have used for years and like. I also use one at work that's pretty close to the same layout. I am looking everywhere for a keyboard with a large "enter" and "backspace" I can't find one. I don't care if it's USB or PS/2 but hate the "flat" type that ship with computers these days you look at the key to hard and it presses. I have HUGE hands and like the "old style" keyboard that you have to press pretty hard on the keys (like an actual spring under them) Do any of you know of a specialty keyboard shop or somewhere else with a big selection? I have looked all over the internet on the "major" places. (i.e. Newegg, TigerDirect, BestBuy, Wal-Mart, etc...)

If anyone knows of a place that has "old style" keyboards please let me know. I may have to settle but for such a small purchase that I use so much, I'd like to get what I want and I can't be the only one with massive hands having these same issues. The world isn't made for us big guys.

My friend is having a strange problem with their computer. They are using Windows XP Home Edition. After composing a new email in Outlook Express, and hitting the send button. The Install wizard pops up as if something is being installed on the computer, and then a second window pops up with a message (sorry I don't have the exact wording) relating to Microsoft Picture It! Stating that the file is located on a disc or other removable media. It's as if Microsoft Picture It! is attempting to install. All of these windows can be canceled and closed. The email will be sent as usual.

They are using Norton anti-virus software, which is up do date. We also ran Avast virus cleaner. The computer appears to be free of viruses. We tried reinstalling IE and OE, but it didn't help. I was thinking about unistalling both IE and OE, and then reinstalling to see if that would correct the problem.

What would cause something this weird? I have never run across anything like this before.

The only clue so far is that if one goes into the win7 system under the adapter, and "Client for Microsoft Networks" is clicked, the error happens, if not clicked, no error happens (and it never connects either..). A third win7 machine, works fine (so far...) I've gone so far as to do a complete system restore, and as soon as the network is activated, the error occurs. (I've turned off the automatic updates for now...)

Help, I'm at my wit's end on this !! Anybody have a solution ?
 

Answer:Solved: Some win 7 machines suddenly request "Network Password"

Thanks to Kevin for the fix!!!

Home Premium does not have the local security policy manager, so you need to do it through your regedit command.

I just did this and got it to work and I would consider myself a novice at this stuff.

So here is the regedit way: Click Start - type in regedit at the search prompt - open regedit. For safety, make a copy first!!

Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then SYSTEM then CurrentControlSet then Control then LSA.

On the right half there should be a bunch of names and types.

You need to add a new DWORD to the list so anywhere in the right half right click and hover over
"new" and select DWORD (mine said DWORD 32-bit value).

Cut and paste this in the name of the new DWORD you are adding without the quotes "LmCompatibilityLevel".

Now if you look under the column Data it should read 0x00000001 (0). This needs to be 0x00000001 (1).

To change the 0 to a 1, right click on the LmCompatibilityLevel name you just added and select Modify.
Change the Value data: from 0 to 1.

My Base was checked as Hexadecimal. Click OK. Close out of the Regedit.

Reboot your machine and whalla, it should work. I saw a couple of other threads that recommended changing
the value to 2, but 1 worked for me.

This is the fix that worked, a single entry in the Registry !! "

I am hoping that someone can help me with what may be a complex question.

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the demonstration file I have attached. In it, there are a range of columns. One set of columns (A - D), shows a list of numbers that are references to items in a store, and it also shows their location in the store, so it acts as a floor-plan. The next column (E) lists those items again to show the dollar amount that those items have produced in total sales (F).

So, what I'd like to do is to add a conditional formatting to show me the "cold" and "hot" spots on the floor-plan so I can see where sales are most concentrated. I would assume that this would be done with a colour scale (using the range of values in column F to work itself out)?

Either way, the figures in column F would change weekly, so the relevant cells in columns A - D would need to automatically change when they're matching cells in column E - F change.

I hope this makes sense, as it's difficult to explain, but any help that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I am sure this must be simple!...I have XP Home, I am using Microsoft Outlook as my default email client. When I go into "My Pictures" and select a group of photo's to email, I then click on the left sided tool bar and press "Email this file", it then gives me the option to compress the size for email which is what I need as they are about 1MB each. But when it goes to attach the photo's it tries to open "hotmail" by opening the internet. I have tried everthing to resolve this. It's no good trying to attach them from Microsoft Outlook as it does not give me the option of resizing them. I have checked internet options and outlook is definately my default client. I also uninstalled MSN Explorer think it might have had something to do with it? I hope this makes sense. PLEASE HELP!!

I am running windows XP (have been for about 4 years!) and about 2 years ago I got MS Office XP prof edition. Yesterday, all of a sudden outlook stopped working. Every time I try to open it, it comes up with "Microsoft Outlook has encountered a problem and needs to close" with a tick box asking if I would like to re-open Outlook. If I try this the same thing just keeps happening.

I haven't installed anything new or made any system changes recently. I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling, I have tried the Office XP Repair and Detect function still with no joy. I have also tried creating a new profile and running outlook through that, but exactly the same thing happens.

The only way I can run it is in safe mode.

Any ideas would be much appreciated as this is driving me crazy!!!

it may work it may not. seems u may have a corrupt file somewhere going from the information you have given us

I have three computers (all Dell) networked via Microsoft's Home Network. All computers are running XP SP3 and I have updated each computer.

One of the computers is my work laptop. I typically "backup" my work files to my main computer on the network, using the "shared folder" of the main computer. For some reason, whenever I try to access the main computers "shared folder," I now get a request for a password. This appeared to happen spontaneously as I have never had this problem before.

I do not have the user accounts password protected. I have tried every password I have ever used, to no avail. This is *NOT* a problem of "forgotten" password but Windows XP suddenly asking for a password when I have never assigned one before.

I can access my laptops "shared folder" across the network with the other computers without a problem. The only problem is trying to access my main computer's shared folder, which results in the request for a password. The User name is greyed out, with the name of the main computer in the user name followed by a forward slash "/guest" and then a box for a password to be entered.

I have simple file share checked and have never changed that setting. I have run and rerun the Network Wizard on all computers without success. I have tried assigning passwords and using them, without luck.

One clue is on the main computer I am trying to access, I used to have two user acc... Read more

Answer:Enter your network password for Microsoft Networking

That is a prompt to log into a Microsoft network.... If your not running a network and its a single PC at home then you want to do the following -

Check out this

As well there is one more hting if you follow this and you still get prompts for passwords then also check in the Microsoft client to see if its set to log onto any type of domain (which I am thinking its not).

I am trying to set up a mobile hotspot on my new installation of Windows 10 Pro, however, on trying to start a connection, I get the error "we can't set up mobile hotspot".
I tried to start one in the CMD using the "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" command but then got the error: "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation." I was able to confirm however, that, under "hosted network supported?", I was able to use hosted networks.
After more searching I found that I found that I was missing the "Microsoft hosted network virtual adapter" in my device manager, even when I enabled hidden devices which leaves me at a bit of a dead end.
Is there anything I can do or is my PC unable to start a mobile hotspot?

Hello,

I need help with configuring Microsoft Loopback Adapter on my Windows 7 Professionl 32-bit laptop. The Device Manager for the adapter says, "This device is working properly". Relevant screenshots are as follows:



IPv4 Properties>>Advanced>>WINS
I disabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP <--------- Not sure if this was required.

There is no antivirus installed and the windows firewall is turned off. Local Area Connection 2 is set to be accessed first by Network Services. I've tried the following with no luck:
1) Uninstall and reinstall the loopback adapter
2) Disable every other adapter and try to connect loopback adapter
3) Change the IP address to something like 192.168.2.5

When I try to install and configure loopback adapter on Windows Vista Home on the same machine on a separate partition, at least I get "Limited Connectivity".

I am not experienced with loopback adapter so I don't even know how to verify whether I am doing things right or I am getting the results right. I believe my settings are correct, then why is it saying, "No Network Access"? Please help me out here. Thank you!

Answer:inquiry on "Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol " ?

This driver is used for two typical usage scenarios, each of which require at least two working (and connected) network adapters on a single PC. The first scenario is called adapter teaming, which means using two or more adapters at the same time, so that you can send and receive more packets than a single adapter could. The second scenario is called adapter failover/high availability, where a standby adapter takes over the network connection if the primary fails. If you only have one adapter on your PC hooked up (as I suspect is the case on your PC), or only one wired connection and one wireless connection, enabling this protocol will result in Windows disabling it automatically as soon as it figures out you can't team multiple adapters to work together on your PC.
HTH,

PS: this capability was introduced with Windows Server 2012, and remains mostly a "server thing" to this day. I don't see or hear about it being used much, if at all, on the client side, including Windows 10 clients. I'm curious if other site members either use it themselves, or have seen it used, in that way. Why, if I may be so bold as to ask, did you seek to enable it?

Hi. When I go into Documents and Settings folder, I always get this "popup" window named "Sign in with Microsoft Passport Network" and I don't feel safe even though it probably really is from Microsoft. More so, it's just plain annoying as hell when I'm trying to navigate through Documents and Settings.
On another forums board, someone suggested I create a new key in my registry which appeared to be a new key to suppress the "popup". I didn't feel safe doing that even though I've worked in my registry before, because this person who suggested this, didn't have any credentials, just a mere 4 prior posts to that forum, hence I don't feel safe trying that.

Can you please tell me how to keep this window from popping up everytime I go into Documents and Settings? I've included a screenshot of the "popup" window and a HJT log to help (see below). Thanks in advance!!!

Whenever I manually go to "My Computer" and then step through the following folders, "Local Disk C", "Documents and Settings", "Mike", a blue framed box appears, urging me to "Sign In With Microsoft Passport Network", with fields for "Sign In Name" and "Password". I click the red X to bypass this and when I open the next folder, this annoyance reappears. When I step backwards to the "Mike" folder, it reappears once again. I have run several spyware programs and all say that my system is clean. Norton AV says the same. I have removed everything from my start-up list using "msconfig" that could possibly be causing this, but to no avail. I assume some trojan has been imbedded into my registry to be causing this. Can you please tell me how to remove this "plague".

This problem started yesterday. I've been using Outlook 2003 for over a year. I'm running Windows XP, MS Office 2003, Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager.

Yesterday, for some reason, Outlook quit "remembering" my password. I have three email accounts that come in to my PC via Outlook 2003. Because email is critical to my business, I configured Outlook to check for new email on these accounts every 1 minute. This has not been changed since I set the software up over a year ago.

Now, when it tries to check for incoming mail, it pops open a window and I have to type in my password. It does this three times, once for each email account. After I input the password, Outlook proceeds to check for email and download any incoming mail.

I have gone to the account setup screens and the password is there. When the problem first started yesterday, this was blank and I had to re-input the passwords.

It has not fixed the problems. HELP!!!

That is a link to a Microsoft article explaining how to correct this problem.

It instructs you to create a new Outlook profile. If that does not work it walks you thru a registry fix.

I have seen this problem many many times and only once did the new profile fix it, I usually have to do the registry fix.

If you try the registry fix, be sure to follow the instructions for backing up the registry first. if you are not comfortable editing the registry the only other fix I know for this problem is to back up your .pst file and uninstall/reinstall Office.
