Hello olsyboy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure that you do not have caps lock on, and for any possible typos.

If that doesn't help, then you could do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before you did this to undo and go back to how it was when the restore point was dated.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

olsyboy,

You could use the tutorial below to create a Vista Recovery Disc on another Vista 32-bit computer to use on your's.

Create a Recovery Disc - Vista Forums

If that is not an option for you, then please post back with what brand and model your Vista computer is. I'll look up how to do a factory recovery for it.

If you followed the tutorial exactly, then it's just a matter of enter the correct user account name and password at log on. Otherwise, it's not going to let you log in.
