Can't log-in -- Says my password is wrong

February 23, 2010 at 23:44:10
Specs: Windows Vista

I just restarted my laptop after windows update and now it says my password is wrong.

I went into safe mode but it just brings up my log-in agian.

Is there a fix to this without reintalling?

no, there is no fix for this, if you have no other account that you can use to login then you have a problem.

The only thing that you can is 'clear the password' this can only be done by an external product. You will need to download and burn either to usb or cd hirens Boot CD

Hirens has a tool to reset passwords in Vista and XP. Dont try to change the password, just set it to blank and it will be fixed!!

Thanks for the reply simon.

I actually got in. At the upper left corner on the log-in screen I just changed my keyboard to us (it was on canadian) and typed my password agian and it worked...
