Windows 7 - Remote desktop keeps displaying the password or username i

Windows 7 - Remote desktop keeps displaying the password or username is incorrect.

I'm using a tablet with windows 7 and I was able to access the admin profile from it but when I try to access the profile I need to access it gives me an error: The user name and password is incorrect. The prolfile im trying to access has a password and I added everyone as the allowed users. Both the tablet and profile are running on windows 7. I was also messing with the router firewall settings but I reverted that. Any Ideas why its that specific profile and not the others. I also tried it on a different computer and it worked fine

I found this solution on another website. it fixed my own problem. try it.
Not sure if you've managed to resolve this or not, but I had a similar problem which is now resolved. Here is my scenario: - the username on Windows 7 target is changed (allegedly - and you know why I say allegedly later) by choosing "change your account name" through clicking on user picture in start menu or "user accounts" in control panel. - you try logging in to Windows 7 remotely (from server 2k3 in my case) using the new uname/password and it fails: incorrect uname/passw. - another pc in the network (xp in my case) is able to login using the new uname. If you're in similar situation, then the reason is that changing the username as said above didn't actually change the username and seems to only set a full name for the same username. to change the actual username, you need to run "netplwiz " (start menu, then just type netplwiz and enter) which shows a different looking "user accounts" window similar to "control userpasswords2" in older versions of windows. You need to have all "user account" windows closed before running this. Then select your current username, then click on properties and change the "User Name" to the new value. Notice the full name being reported as what you were expecting to be the new username.
