Password problem

I'm having trouble getting windows 7 to load. It tells me the password is wrong. However, if I go to safe mode and ust the password, it load fine. Any ideas? Hopefully, I can do this without reinstalling windos 7. Since this was from an upgrade disk, I will have to install Vista first and then install win 7. By the way, I already tried to change password in safe mode. The new password will again only work in safe mode.

Hello dbonney, welcome to Seven Forums!



Have a look at the tutorial at the link below; be sure to do a restore to a date before you started having the issue.

Be sure to post back to let us know how it sorts out.
