    Hello jumper22 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    When you first upgraded to 10 did you enter any password such as the one already in use on 7? If you left the box blank and simply skipped entering the one used for 7 no password was assigned and all you need to do is click the arrow next to the box to proceed on to the desktop during the first few start ups. Afterwards you will simply see the admin account welcome screen as the auto admin logon process brings you direct to the desktop without the prompt.

    Entering a password without having originally assigned one will continue to see the invalid password error appear. If you did assign the same password you may have entered it with one digit being off and are now not able to sign in. What may be a help in case you did see a password entered would be the guide for turning on or off the option to automatically sign into the user account being the admin user account you have.
