Windows 7: Windows won't save password change

Windows won't save password change

Hello fellow Windows 7ers,

I have just had this problem recently that has been very frustrating.

Preface this with: I had this OLD password that I had set. During this time I had that password I did use windows' system image utility to backup my old 500GB drive to restore it on a 1TB drive and I did that while I had this password.

Now, when I try to change the password it will not save the change. When I change it, I can logout and it will accept the NEW password, but once I reboot or shut down and it comes back up, it only accepts the OLD password.

Any ideas? Thanks

Yeah I know. That was my last resort. I think my users .dat file must be somehow messed up. I have since migrated my users stuff to a new one. So far so good. Still with I knew why windows did that.
