    I just got a new computer. I had my User Account setup, had a password on it. I was making sure Windows was up to date, had to restart, then restarted on its own again(I'm assuming part of the update), and when it booted back up, it said my account has been disabled. Please contact your system administrator. I can sign in under Administrator, or Other User. The password I set up with my account doesn't work for Administrator. Is there a default password? Any idea what happened? I've never seen this happen before.

    I have no idea what would disable your account.

    If you did NOT add a password to the Administrator account then there is NONE, just hit the "Enter key" and the account should start up.

    I do NOT set a password for any account until I have it set up and running. This includes when setting up a new machine and with ALL of the updates and programs installed and them updated. Then I may set the password, but normally will run it for a few days before I do That.

    Please refer to the site rules:

    "Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with forgotten passwords and/or bypassing them. As there is no way to verify the actual situation and/or intentions, no assistance will be provided and any such threads will be closed."

    Because of this rule, we are not able to assist you... I am sure a moderator will be along and close this thread..

    You did say you can sign in as the Administrator, if that's the case, you should be able to change the password on your account and re-enable the account. Have you tried that?

    What version of Windows 7 is this?
