windows 7 login password incorrect

Q: windows 7 login password incorrect

Wife was nagging me to remove the password at Windows7 startup because it was too long, so I followed the instructions online (unclicked the box to require password at login) and it came up with a box (I don't think was mentioned in the instructions I was following) that told me to enter, and confirm the password. I left them blank since I didn't want a new password.
Now when I startup it still asks me for a password (usename it gives is HomeGroupUser$) and when I try my old password it doesn't work, and when I try leaving it blank and pressing enter it still doesn't work.
So I can't login...

My parents are having an issue logging on to their computer. It seems that my mother miss-typed her microsoft email address when she activated it. Now she has a login in screen that asks for a password for the miss-typed account address. She cannot get past this screen since she does not know the password. Does anyone know how to change the email account on the login screen so that she can attempt to login in to her computer?

Hi honus03 and welcome to Tenforums.

I think you should be able to enable the Hidden Administrator Account using option #4 here:
Administrator account - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Once in, create the correct account, delete the incorrect account, and then re-hide the Hidden Administrator Account.

Hey guys,

I have seen similar threads in some places, but none of them seemed to have exactly the same problem I have been having. Anyway, I have an Alienware M17x with Windows 7 installed. Yesterday, Windows stopped accepting my login credentials and kept giving the error "the username or password is incorrect". I never did change my password, and no one else has access to my laptop. My password was about to expire, but it never prompted me to enter a new password ever. I have tried pretty much everything that I could find/think of.

1) There are no other accounts on the system other than the one that is locked out.

2) I tried rebooting in safe mode, but it ultimately takes me back to the login screen with a different screen resolution.

3) I have tried repairing using the Windows 7 disk. That didn't work either.

4) I tried going to the command prompt and displaying user accounts that are present on the system( using "net user"). It shows me an Administrator account and Guest account. So I took a chance and changed the administrator password, but it didn't accept it on the login screen.

5) I have tried System restore to the previous day.

6) I have tried setting the BIOS date back one day. It's set back to the original date now.


I don't really want to buy a password breaker software yet, because I have a feeling it is not about the password, just some software glitch.

Any help is highly appreciated

I previously routinely logged into my daughters computer (running Vista Business X64 behind the firewall at her university's network) via TS Web Access.She upgraded the system to Windows 7 Ultimate to solve a video card issue and now the Remote Desktop login fails.  I can get to the machine through the gateway but it gives the "The username or password in incorrect message" on every attempt.I can have someone log using Remote Desktop from the internal network just fine using the absolute same username/password.I have had her check all of the remote settings multiple times (I have seached this one extensively).  Can anyone suggest what the problem may be and a solution.  Or even a method to diagnose would be helpful.This is a critical issue for me since she is near clueless.

A:The username or password is incorrect when attempting login to remote computer running Windows 7 Ultimate via TS Web Access

I found my own answer to this issue after I got acces to the machine physically and was able to view the security logs for the failed login attempts.  For some reason windows seven required that I use the entire computer name \\computer name\account name\ to get to the machine whereas Vista did not require full name.  Problem solved as long as I use the full name convention for the computer as expectedf behind the ts gateway.  Also don't pass the ts gateway credentials on to the remote computer as this causes it to want to log on with those creditials at the machine.

Hello MS community! I was curious as to 1. whether or not anyone has had this issue, and 2. if anyone knows how to address this problem:
Ever since I've had Win 8-8.1 installed on my new laptops, I always get the same bug- that is, a false notification of my password being incorrect upon login attempt #1. On my 2nd login attempt, (pressing 'enter', clearing the notification) I can always
login. This has always happened after about 4-10x of flawless logins on a fresh OS installation and it stays permanent as a bug afterwards.


I mostly stayed quiet because it was just a minor nuisance for me, but I'm curious if this is a known bug and if there's a solution (because we all chase the flawless execution of an OS). For reference, I use a local user account to sign in, but have also
had this issue when I used an MS account in the past.

Being as I've had Win 8 and Win 8.1 installed on my past 3 laptops, which all had the same issue- I
highly doubt this is an isolated event. I know for some people they can't even login when presented with this message, but this small hiccup in the OS is rather persistent. I really just want to get some community advice/wisdom on this matter.

I have this very strange problem with my newly installed Windows 8.1 laptop, which is joined to the domain. When the logon screen appears I'm not able to log on with my credentials, the domain\username as shown are correct, but when I give my credentials
I get the error "The password is incorrect. Try again". 
I am certain that the credentials are just fine, if I choose the option sign in with different user and I use the same domain account with the same credentials it will log on into my account.
I tried to remote the computer form the domain and rejoin the computer again, but no luck. Does anyone has a solution for this? 

A:Can't login to domain account "The password is incorrect. Try again", but credentials are correct

When I choose different user and login with my account, it will logon normally. When I restart my computer it will show the last logged in account, so when I give my credentials I get the error again; "The password is incorrect. Try again".

What do you mean "choose different user and login with my account"? Do you mean logon to the account in another PC or just click "another user"?
Have you tried to logon to the domain account in another pc, then change the password, then test this issue again.

Hello, so I've just found an old laptop I've had hoarded with windows 8 on it. Everything on it is super outdated, and I noticed it had my account on it which was basically my Microsoft account. I tried to sign in, but it says it's incorrect. I know my

Hello, I'm having an issue with logging back in after I hibernate the system. It goes to the login page where I enter in my password. The problem is everytime I type in my password, it tells me that I've typed the wrong password. I try to "switch user" and login from there (not sure what the difference is), and that doesn't work either.

I always end up having to restart the computer. Then when it gets to the login page, I type in the exact password that I tried to type before, and it works. It's only right after I hibernate that the password stops working.

Any idea whats going on?

Hello, everybody, sorry i haven't yet introduced myself but i'm in a bit of rush and will some time soon. I was working on a friend's computer that he inherited from someone else by the name of gerry. When you start up windows, it's xp professional, it displays the name Gerry for login but all you have to do is hit enter because there is no set password. however, once you're logged in, the start menu says you're logged in as co0ra, and the same thing when you check the user accounts. Even when i went to user accounts to change the name, hopefully resetting both and setting a password, i rebooted to still see the name Gerry but the new password accepted. i noticed he had tweakui installed in the add/remove programs panel but could not locate it in its usual installation location. I also didn't have the internet at my disposal so i couldn't reinstall it at the time. But i'm reasonably certain its a setting set in tweakui. Anyone have any idea how to work around this, with or without tweakui. Its an annoying and silly problem. thanks in advance. Sorry for rushed grammar.

A:Windows Login Password?

Hello swaMprUnner.

Having a password on all the administrator accounts is always good. I recommend that you don't use an unpassworded admin account for everyday surfing. If you don't want to type in a password everyday, I suggest you create a limited access account without a password. However, it may get frustrating having to log on to the admin account to make system changes.

Some malware will be able to access an unpassworded admin account and do uh... bad things.

Just my opinion anyways.

Welcome to TSG!

Is that one account "Admin" one that you created?

If you're running XP, you should be able to start the computer in Safe Mode and choose the default "Administrator" account which is only available in Safe Mode. To my knowledge, that does NOT require a password and the true "Administrator" account (not the "Admin" one you created) is only available in Safe Mode.

Then follow the directions in this article from Microsoft. Use Method 2 because obviously Method 1 doesn't apply to you.

A:Forget Password for Windows Login

Hi and welcome to TSF.
If you read the rules you will see that we cannot give any assistance with circumventing passwords.

ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES

Users may not post hacks, cracks, or give instruction how to pirate any type of software, or anything similar, in any forum of TSF. We do not condone, support or give instruction on any illegal activity pertaining to computer systems, computer hardware, computer software programs or computer related activities. Included in this group of activities are requests for help to circumvent system admin passwords or Administrator settings on networks. We do understand that the majority of requests may be legitimate, but we do not have the means to discern these from non-legitimate requests.

One thing you can try is to login in Safe Mode as Administrator. If no password has been set for the Administrator account simply press return when asked for the password. It is then possible to reset passwords for other User Accounts.

I can't remember fully now but I was having a problem with setting up a schedule in Macrium Reflect, it kept failing to accept my Win 10 password. I went to 'netplwiz' thinking I could just login without a password but then after I rebooted I could only get to the win 10 login screen, the one after the pretty picture. It seems there is a scheduling problem with Reflect after the anniversary update and I haven't been able to use it since.

I reset my Windows password but that fails as well so it seems to me that I somehow need to get back into 'netplwiz' again in order to remove the tick 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' but I don't know how to get to it! I found this very complicated to understand as it seems to worded back to front, but I was told to add the tick in order NOT to have to log in!

As I downloaded the update and installed it I don't have an ISO, but assuming there is an ISO (anniversary build) can I create one on this spare laptop and use it on the one I can't get into ? That's assuming it will help me to overcome the login problem?

Hi all,

My girlfriend is in Thailand at the moment.
I setup a password for her account using remote assistance, but at the time her computer was set to Thai language and I did not realise when typing the password in. She said she has tried changing the language by doing <alt+shift> and typing the password I set in different languages but she said it is not working.
The only account she had setup was called "Administrator". Is this the same account that is used for Safe Mode? Or does Safe Mode have it's own hidden Administrator and the password cannot be changed unless you change it within Safe Mode?

I am so annoyed at the moment >,<,

My sister has a Dell Demension Desktop C251 computer running Windows XP. Her 10 year old daughter put a password to log onto windows and forgot the password. There were no users on the log in screen before, when the computer booted up it went straight to the desktop. Is there anyway I could recover or reset this password? There are no other users that can be logged into to even get past the Windows User Log In screen. Thanks for any help in advance. Thanks!

-If there's any more info I need to give I will do my best to give it.

Hi.

Stupid me, I forgot my Windows 7 Administrator login password for a user's system and my Password Reset "disk" (USB stick) is not here with me right now.
Is there a quality free or inexpensive paid program that can help me retreive or reset it.
I see a million choices on Google but don't know what to trust and need ease of use.

Tnx,

Brad. :-)

Once it restarted at Windows 10 before Hello screen it asked me for Fingerprint authentication and it logged me in to my Windows 10 account.I tried the cold boot several times and each time the same thing happened.I checked to see what was the latest Windows 10 update did and saw one of the items was for ?Security update for secure boot?.I then checked the Event log viewer and saw every time before the P70 rebooted from cold boot it was doing a ?bug check?.Yesterday, I installed the BIOS version 2.05 and Synaptics Metallica Touch Fingerprint Driver version 5.1.311.26. Thinking that will resolve the problem. Unfortunately, it did not. I still cannot use the Fingerprint Authentication from cold boot when my PC is on the Dock.After further experiments I realized that:1- If the P70 is NOT on Dock everything works correctly. That is, I would start the P70 from cold boot, I would use once the Fingerprint authentication and it would power on the P70 and then log me to Windows 10 with no pr... Read more
