    Ok, first things first I completly locked myself out of my own comptuer. Then I broke into my own account and created a password reset disk. Now, anyone who types in a wrong password can reset it.

    In other words no matter the password you enter it can open my account.

    I'm the only user on this computer, no guest , admin, nothing. I'm trying not to create a new account in order to correct this probelm.


    *Changing the password dose not correct this probelm.

    I don't think there is any other way around it except to make another account

    you can run gpedit.msc (group policy editor) and from there go to

    Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

    and enable Interactive logon: Do not display last user name
