windows 7 it keeps telling me password is incorrect

When I try to log in on windows 7 it keeps telling me password is incorrect, but I know itís the right one .When I log in via safe mode it accepts the password with no problem
I have changed the password a few times but when I reboot it says wrong password
So I need to start safe mode etc. again can anyone help regarding this

Thanks

Hi Goodwinteam, welcome to the Seven Forums.

As you can log in to Safe Mode using your password I see no reason for using any tools to reset the password.

Simply log in to Safe mode, go to Control Panel > Users and remove your password (see tutorial).

Now exit Safe Mode, log in normally without password, go to Control Panel > Users and set a new password (tutorial). It should work now.

Hi Kari
Thanks for the reply, I’ve followed those steps but after a reboot or restart it does it again to you think if I delete the user credentials this will this solve the problem or could it be malware?

You could of course scan for malware but I do not think so.

My suggestion is to remove password in Safe Mode as I told in my previous post, then still in Safe mode run the Windows System File Checker SFC (tutorial), shut down the PC, restart and log in to Windows normally without a password.
