    'incorrect user name and password'


    The netplwiz option is the same as I posted in post #2 below. If you check the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box, do you still get this "incorrect user name and password" message?

  4. Incorrect User Names

    Computer name change issues (user/passw incorrect)

    Hi,



    We suggest that you log in to your admin account then delete the other user profile. To delete a user account on Windows 10, kindly follow these steps:



    • Click Start > Settings > Account > Family & other users
    • Click the account that you want to delete
    • Click Remove. You’ll be prompted to confirm.
    • Click Delete account and data.


    Once the other account is deleted, you can try again running the netplwiz.
    Just ensure that you uncheck the one labeled as “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer.”





    Please inform us if this works for you.
