Windows 7: Erased password: Can't log in!

Erased password: Can't log in!

I erased my password through the control panel in XP mode in hopes of not ever having to enter the password. Now when I try to log-on, I get this message:

Old password:
The system cound not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case.


No Password:
Unable to log you on because of an account restriction.


I tried deleted the credentials but still can't log-in whether my password is blank or the old one. Is there anything I can do?

I tried a system restore with no luck. I have to uninstall XP mode and reinstall all my programs again. A kind reminder to anyone wanting to erase the password through the WinXP mode control panel...

You don't have to login, it does it automatically if you Enabled Integration. lol

I did enable integration. Yet sometimes it won't ask for password and sometimes it will.

Same as mine, but it didnt make me go an do what u did, i do not think there is anything u can do. You could try and connect to Xp's Computer Management from W7, where u can enable the Guest account or even create a new account. I tried this, it connects but get access denied (5) once going into Users...so i gave up.

There was absolutely nothing I could have done so I just uninstalled and reinstalled everything. Once you erase the password through XP mode control panel, it just won't let you log in no matter what.

Yeah. There are plenty of utilities to reset the password to anything you want or to blank it.

Here's good one.

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor Review - Password Recovery Software Review - Password Crack ISO Download

If you don't want to enter your password in the future, that's what netplwiz is for on Vista/7 and Userpasswords2 for XP. Type it in start menu search box.
