Yes, OSX is fine though, he used the same password for both, but the OSX logged me in!
I don't know why the Windows 7 one isn't the same, he must of typed it wrong or something.

Aargh all my games are on Windows 7!
I won't re-install until I buy it Oct 22 :O

Steelbom, can you describe what exactly the problem is?

The way I understand it, your Dad set your password on your mac, and you forgot it.

Normally I wouldn't mention a mis-spelt name,
but I really hate steelborn it sounds like still-born, it's steelbomb without the last b

The problem is
He set the password for OSX and Windows 7,
the point being so I can't access the admin account on OSX or the admin account on Windows 7
(which happens to be the only account on windows). I am only allowed on the "managed" accounts. (Parental Controls)

I'm sure caps lock was not on, it has a little green light on it if it is on, so it's pretty obvious,
It had letters and numbers, but wasn't a difficult password.

It was also used on OSX as well, I later got dad to change the OSX one back,
Which worked just fine, it's just Windows 7 which won't work :/

Kind Regards

It sounds like you just need to make sure you type it correctly. Keep in mind that your dad may have made an error typing it in, therefor the password on the computer is wrong.....
