  1. Recovering Windows Credentials


    Hi,

    How do I recover my Windows Credentials - username and password? I am trying to add a PC to our home network but the request for Windows Credentials keeps popping up.

    The options are to change the network settings so no password is required to connect to the new PC however this reduces security considerably as all someone needs to do is to hack into the home network and they can access the PC. At lease if Windows Credentials can be made to work it will be two passwords that need to be gotten through - so this is not an option.

    I tried to get the username and password from MS using account recovery however this option is useless as MS asks for such things as outlook or hotmail account emails etc as proof of identity - I don't have any of these accounts so this doesn't work.

    There must be a solution of course I have scoured the internet but no joy.

    :)

    Hi Keith,

    We suggest that you disable Credential Manager before mapping your Drives. Please follow these steps to disable Credential Manager:

    • In the search box type “Services
    • Right click on “Services” and select “Run as Administrator
    • In the Services Window, look for Credential Manager Service and click “Stop”.
    • Restart the computer and go back the Credential Manager Service and set it to “Automatic”.
    • Restart the computer again.

    Please keep us updated if you were able to map your drives.

    Scheduled tasks run with elevated privileges can't access stored Windows credentials

    It seems that after Creators update scheduled tasks run with elevated privileges ('run with highest privileges' option) can't access stored Windows credentials. Is that a bug or an intentional change and is there a recommended workaround?

    Here's one way to reproduce the behaviour:

    • Start Credential Manger and add some Windows share credentials.
    • In a console window type 'cmdkey /list', which should list the added credentials
    • Create a task in a task manager:
      • Trigger: on user logon
      • Action: run cmd.exe
      • Tick the 'run with highest privileges' option
    • Reboot the machine and log in
    • In the console window (let's call it 'console 1') opened from the scheduled task type 'cmdkey /list'. This most likely won't display the credentials added in step 1 and properly listed in step 2. ->
      This looks like a bug
    • Now, without closing 'console 1' open another console window as an administrator (let's call it 'console 2') and type 'cmdkey /list'. This will properly list credentials added in step 1.
    • Switch to 'console 1' and type 'cmdkey /list' again. This time the credentials are listed properly, unlike in step 5. It looks like an access to Windows credentials was somehow 'unlocked' by step 6.
