Hi, I hope this is the right place for this post, sorry if it's not.
OS = windows 7 home premium.
Windows is not recognising my password. I just reset my windows password using a windows password resetting program. The password was reset to no password. After resetting, the system loaded windows without problem and didn't ask for a password as expected.
I then went to "user accounts" and chose the "create a password for this account" option. I did this and it accepted my new password. The problem is now, when I restart the PC and try to log into windows using this new password, it tells me it's incorrect even though it is definately correct. I used a combination or uppper/lower case letters, numbers and symbols. I'm not sure if this has an effect.
There is only one account, which is the administrator account.
I had to reset the password to no password again using the software so I could login to windows.
Any suggestions as to why I can't log in?
BTW, the reason I reset the password in the first place is because I tried to change the existing password(which I setup when I installed windows) to a new one in the "user accounts" screen. This failed, it told me that the password was incorrect even though I used the same one I used to log on.
