    Windows 10

    How can I research or verify my login credentials?

    Whenever I boot Win 10 (1511) the first (Lock?)screen automatically presents the message that the password is incorrect. Where is it finding this "bad password"? I altered my password weeks ago, but maybe an old password is somewhere in the system. When I click and enter my new password, everything starts.

    I connect this login issue with another problem: In my browser, when I go to a MS site whose URL contains the words "live.com", the login fails with the message "something went wrong" which seems to translate to "we aren't gonna log you in. "
    How can I see what password is fouling up the first automatic login? How can I dig in to find out what Live.com expects? Do I have to create a new account? Password changing is easy, but my last change didn't seem to be noted somewhere in the MS world.

    Thanks for your ideas.

    Hello Kupuna,

    It sounds like you need to redo netplwiz again to update your password.
