Been locked out of computer can't log in

Typing this on phone sorry for being curt

I set up a pw on my admin account yesterday and when I turned on my comp today it said invalid username or pw when it got to the welcome screen before I even entered anything in. It says "kiosk" not even the name of the account I want to log in to. My admin account doesn't even appear there. I tried using the pw I made yesterday on this kiosk thing but it didn't work

Looks like Kiosk was enabled on the machine somehow?

I found that others have experienced similar problems.

Kiosk user id

I recently upgraded my desktop from Vista to Window 7.
The only userid that comes up is Kiosk.
What is the password for the Kiosk user id?
Is there another userid and password I can use to get past this so I can setup my own userid and password?

When I turn my computer on, previously set up profiles disappear and are replaced with 'Kiosk' and 'other user' options that require passwords. I can get into 'other user' and find my previous user accounts, but lose them again after restart.
I cannot talk about Circumventing Passwords here but I do hope you find a solution to your problem.

I was able to get back in by doing a system restore to a point before I created the password. However, this still doesn't solve my problem entirely as I would like to have a password on my computer but obviously this problem will occur again if I try to implement a password again.

I read somewhere that something called "Microsoft Digital Experience" is a program that was installed by the store I bought the laptop from (Office Depot I think) and that this program is responsible for the "Kiosk" non sense I ran into before. Should I just uninstall that garbage and hopefully that will fix the password issue? I don't know anything about that program, it shouldn't affect anything major on my computer if I uninstall it right?

Sorry about the late reply I was busy doing other things, This is a reply from this LINK

Yes you can uninstall MDX (It will be called Microsoft Digital Experience) and it will remove the kiosk account and any traces of it, then restart your machine. Any other accounts on the machine should remain, but I would do a backup first. That should fix your problem. The associates at the store you bought it from should have done this for you, why they didn't, I have no clue (we are instructed to do so before releasing the machine to customers). If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase the machine?
I hope this solves your problem
