    System error reads: Isass.exe "When trying to update a password, this return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct"

    I have tried the safe mood etc. I have not been able to boot up. Any help would be appreciated.

    On the computer that is having the problem, is there another user account you can try an log on with other than the one giving the password error.

    No it will not boot up to XP at all. It just gives me the system error as it is trying to boot up.

    When you boot to safe mode, XP normally does not automatically try and log in with any account. What account are you using at that point?

    So in safe mode, you never get prompted for a user account?
