This is typical of posts that are becoming more frequent in the MS
"Something strange has occurred with my Windows 7. We had two user
accounts on there: mine (which was also the Admin account) and my
wife's. Neither of these accounts had a password. (Perhaps not a good
idea, but nobody else uses our computer.)
Last night, my wife's account wasn't showing up on the opening sign-in
screen, but there was a blank profile called "Other User". When I logged
onto that and entered my wife's user account, it let us log in.
I went into Users to see if I could see what was going on, and I'm not
sure how it happened, but the next thing I knew, without entering
anything at all, it was saying that there was a password on my Admin
So I logged back out to the use login screen and now my wife's account
shows up, and there's only the blank "Other User" profile showing up for
me. If I log into it and enter my username, it prompts for a password -
a password which I never created and thus do not know. So now I'm locked
out of the Admin account for my computer.
Is there anything I can do?"
Why do people put up with paying for this unfinished CRAP?
