Windows 10: PC forgets my password

    PC forgets my password

    I am running Windows 10 Pro although the PC is not on a domain, most of the time the PC runs 24\7. The problem is when I have to reboot the PC, it does not like accepting my password to log back in. If I reboot the PC and wait for it to finish loading and then log back in it can take as many as 6 attempts to login before my password is accepted. If I reboot my PC over night and leave it until the morning to login, it will simply refuse to accept any password and I will have to reboot the PC again. My Password is short and simple and I have had it for years, I am the only user of my PC and there is only the one account on the PC and yes it is the admin account (ok none of that is good for security I know but there you go).

    Anybody suggest what the resolution to the reluctant password issue is please?
