Windows 7: Multiple User Issue

Multiple User Issue

Hey all, I couldn't find a thread specifically regarding this, sorry if there is already one, a link to it will suffice instead of wasting time answering.

Anyway, I set up a new Thunderbolt iMac with Windows 7 ONLY, and for some reason it is only recognizing one user account. There are 3 in total set up on the machine, and although I know the passwords for each it says the user name or password is incorrect.

I have tried resetting the passwords from the account that works, and it still does the same thing.

I set up exactly the same system on a seperate identical iMac, and it hasn't given me any trouble at all.

I'm really stumped and can't seem to find anything on google about this specific problem...

Really appreciate any help

Recreate the other two? Delete them then re add them with the same name if you like. However, they will be different even with the same name.

Yeah I have already tried that, the only thing I haven't done is a fresh install, which I didn't really want to have to do.

Ok so weirdly enough I deleted them once more, and added them again, and now they work? I swear I deleted them twice already and it didn't work...

This can be closed Thanks.
