    Today I tried NoMachine on two computers and it’s running well! Very positive about how easy it was to get working – even cross platform wise.
    However, I am at the moment struggling with my client computer. I am not interested in being remote controlled on this Windows 7 machine so I want to stop the server service. When I do this it asks for admin password. I entered it but nothing happens (it removes the password I entered). I see the loading icon for a split second and then it just stays at the login screen. No message about wrong password or anything. I can even enter a wrong password and I get no message! It’s stuck at:
    Authorization required
    Please type the administrator username and password to proceed.”

    Is this a bug or am I missing something? If it’s worth anything I did try to reboot a few times. No effect.
