    Hello parth patel, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The credentials used by netplwiz are independent, and do not get updated when you make changes to your computer name, user name, and/or password.

    To fix this, you'll just need to set netplwiz again to update it so it will use the new computer name afterwards.
