Password problem with Vista
Help. I changed the default login on my daughters Vista laptop and type to
standard user, and I created a new Admin account with Admin rights for me.
After creating both and creating adding a new password for the Admin account
I can no longer log in as Admin. At the OS login, the Admin account
immediatly comes up with a message that a new password must be created for
the first time login (???). and attempting to swith users to the Admin when I
was logged in on my daughters user account does not accept the password that
I know I created for the Admin account. There are no other Admin accounts on
the machine (in fact the Asp.net Machine account that was there has
disappeared).

Re: Password problem with Vista
Hello,

if there's nothing that helps, start Vista in Safe mode (press F8 before
Windows starts). Then, you should be able to logon with the in-built account
named Administrator (which doesn't accept a password by default). Then,
change your passwords.
I hope this will work for you. Please report back if it did.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo
