Windows 7: Correct Password to logon rejected, had to restart

Correct Password to logon rejected, had to restart

As the title says. I was entering my password. It is just numbers and I tried it with caps lock on and off. It was the correct password. I tried multiple times.

I had to reset my computer.

Is that normal? Could I have a virus? My computer has been acting 'weird' but not like it has a virus. I have used malwarebytes and avg. Both do not find anything.

Are you sure you were typing it in correctly? I've done the same thing and swore I was typing in the correct user name and password and got that error message...I had to slow down my fingers typing in password and sure enough I had access.

Yes..you could very well have a Virus or malware of some type which can cause this type of problem. Personally I would switch to MSE for AV and use more than just malwarebytes for malware. I use 4 and they find something that the others didn't catch. Here are the 4 I use.

Malwarebytes Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
Super Antispyware SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Adaware Ad-Aware by Lavasoft - Antivirus software, free spyware removal, firewall
Spybot S&D The home of Spybot-S&D!

Yes, it was definitely the correct password. I have had the same one for about 6 years. Its similar to 342999. I typed it in very slow.

The weird thing is when I clicked switch user, it brought up my user again. The page seemed to be different but obviously I dont know for sure.


Thanks for the software. I have ran super antispyware and it found 26 adware tracking cookies
adaware is still running and has found 4.

I guess maybe I should restore my computer.

Reinstate logon password? (I do know the password)
