Subject: BS: Reseting a user password in Vista
From: GUEST,Dazbo at home

Hi there, looking for some advice

My step daughter has forgotten her password (I am the administrator and she has been set up as one of the users). We do not have a password disk for her.

I have reset her password using my administrator account (using Manage another account). This seems to have worked ok but when my daughter tries to log in it accepts the password but then logs off. I've rebooted the lap top a couple of times but it hasn't made any difference. I tried to set up a guest account as a test and even though it doesn't have a password it looks like its going to let you and and then logs off. I think I had a similar problem when I set up the account four years ago but I can't remember how I got it work but I seem to feel it was something simple.

Any ideas?

Found it was only a year ago and I asked the question on here. The work around is to make my daughter an administrator - not what I would like to do as she's only 7. So apart from changing from Vista anyone got any ideas other than making a 7yo an administrator?

You as admin delete the account and create a new one. She will lose any shit she has stored in the account. Or you could create a new account without deleting the old one and if she needs stuff from the old one you could fetch it.

But a 7 year old being allowed a password on her account? WTF?

The problem may be that Vista was crap when it came out and it's only worse now. There have been four new OS releases since that buggy system. Perhaps it's time to upgrade and start fresh?

BTW, support and updates for Vista are about to end. FYI.

I updated all of my stuff to Windoze 10, with the exception of the Dell (which runs Vista, and, I would add, very stably) attached to the TV. Then I discovered that nothing running Win 10 can get into the web interface f my D-link routers. So now I either have to keep the Vista machine as it is until it won't go any more at all, or go out and buy a cheap XP laptop just to be able to tweak the routers. Bah!

Windows 10 has issues - and there is a thread discussing them.

The Win10 thread link you posted which is to
mudcat.org/thread_all.cfm?threadid=159221&messages=59
fails: access denied. I have to change it to
mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=159221&messages=59
Presumably 'thread-all' is not available to everyone.
