    Password Reset Problem

    When I upgraded one desktop, I must have set a MS password instead of a local account without a password.. Think I ran an auto login program, where I didn't have to use a password. I read that the account could not be changed. I tried logging in as a local account and got "can't be changed" . I was looking through gpedit .msc and not sure if anything in there can help me.

    I just found out when I used ctrl-alt-del logout to check something

    Got to be a way !
