Windows 7: Lenovo laptop locked me out. Asks for password which I did not set

sorry, yeah, it's solved.

culprit is lenovo facial recognition "security" software.

While setting up the software, it added a password to my windows account and locked me out.

whatever password you type into the lenovo software will be your new Windows account password.
the Lenovo software doesn't warn you about that beforehand.

So you have or you have not fixed it? If you have please post the steps you took to fix it so others may learn from your experience.

If you haven't fixed it then post that also as no one looking at this thread can tell if has or has not been fixed.

Thanks.

I've disabled that software in my Lenovo since I have a piece of tape over the web cam. I never use the cam and it's too easy for someone to hack into it.
