How to set sharing and security model for local accounts to Classic

APPLIES TO

Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

RESOLUTION

Sharing and security model for local accounts is set to ‘Guest only’ on remote PC. This is most common issue, since it is set like that by default in Windows XP. To change it please do following steps:
Open ‘Control panel’
Select ‘Administrative Tools’
Open ‘Local security policy’
On the left pane navigate to ‘Security Settings’ => ‘Local policies’ => ‘Security Options’
On the right pane find ‘Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts’
Double-click on it in order to change
Set it to ‘Classic – Local users authenticate as themselves’

You can also do that in registry:
Press on windows ‘Start’ button
Click on ‘Run…’
Type ‘regedit’ and press Enter
On the left pane navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

On the right pane you will find value ‘forceguest’, if it is not there you need to create it, by clicking menu Edit => New => DWORD value
Double click on ‘forceguest’ in order to change it
Set it to ‘0’

Reboot your remote PC and try to connect to it with Recover Keys again.
