Some major websites--such as Facebook, Vox and others (but not Metafilter!)--have users enter username & password on an http page rather than an https page. Is this as secure as logging in via https:// and if so, why?

Hi this problem occurs on my wife's PC where her Outlook 2007 (Gmail) & Live Messenger (Version 2009) password settings occasionally get 'reset'. It happens maybe once a month. How do I prevent this from happening? [more inside]

When attempting to register at an online forum I was repeatedly blocked when attempting to pick a username. My choices included random strings of letters and numbers. I sent a email asking what was up. The answer was that one had to register using ones "real" name...
How the heck can a web admin make that determination? The only question asked previous to picking a username and pw was DOB. (Which seems a bit weird too.)
Since that time I have attempted to pick a username with several plausable "real" names including my real real one and have been blocked
Does this make any sense?

How do I transparently share files from a Windows Server 2008 box to several XP computers? I want it to stop asking for a username and password when people try to access files.
Also, can anyone point me in the right direction to solving this weird network issue I've been having? [more inside]

Help me pick a professional domain name for email. All reasonable combinations of my name are already taken (the same goes for GoogleMail addresses). I'd like to avoid firstnamelastnameUK01321@googlemail.com if I can. I'm going to be using it mainly on CVs. [more inside]

Why are many financial institutions moving to a two-step login process, where you enter your username on one page and then your password on the next? For instance, Vanguard
. Their rationale is just that it's "more secure", but that's not much of a reason.

I've got a old dell laptop which, just before I retired it, I loaded up with NT 2000 workstation from a legit cd I had. And I've forgotten whichever username/password combo I cleverly used. Furthermore I can't find the orginal cd anywhere so that I could just reload the OS.
Does anyone know of a way I can access this machine? I want to give it to my young daughter 'cause it's free.

We've got a bunch of users in a Windows domain (using Active Directory) who will be renamed to a letters-and-numbers parent-company username standard in about a week. Instead of using "jsmith" or "janedoe", they'll now be known as "ABC1234" etc. (not my decision, BTW).
Is there a way to make a table or username mapping on our print server so that things sent to networked printers (all running from a common printserver host) come out with a full name or recognizable name on the cover/banner page?

I'm trying to get my application (VB, but that doesn't matter) to connect to the internet and support proxy servers that require a username and password. The former is easy, the latter not. What I'm doing is sending Proxy-Authorization: Basic [authentication]
in the header (where [authentication] is "username:password" base64 encoded) with each request. However the proxy server keeps reporting error 407 (authentication required). I've read the RFC's, I've read google groups but I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?
