Windows 7: Account Lockout (sort of) in Win 7

Account Lockout (sort of) in Win 7

Hello All,

I'm having a wierd problem since installing Windows 7 Ultimate (RTM). Whenever I lock my computer, I can't log back in - it says that the password is incorrect. However, if I cancel my attempt to log back in, and then click that button "Log in as a different user", and then manually type in my username and password (the same one that was denied access in the previous step), I can get back in.

It's a domain account that I'm using here. This didn't happen when I was using Vista. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?

Thanks,
Andy

the user name and password are combined to form a pair. If you have 1 bad character in the name (space) the password is rendered wrong

Don't see any spaces

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the reply. I checked my domain username for spaces and there aren't any. I'm not sure how you're saying that a space would get in there when my username is already selected from my last login.

In any case, there isn't a space in my username - but if I go sign in as a different user and then type my own username, I can then log back in.

Any other ideas? Thanks in advance for your help!
