    updated to 1903 and my correct password was not accepted


    I have a password manager which I checked (on my phone) also checked my password book. I had enetered the correct password! Had to go through an unbelieveable password reset and finally got it accepted. When the screen opened, my wallpaper was gone and most of my programs like Thunderbird ,etc were gone. A few programs were there, but they did not recognize me and asked me register! It was almost like it was not my user account. I rebooted and chose Macrium recovery and restored from the image I had made yesterday before the update. I then turned off updates for a month ( I have winpro). I got the notification right away that there was a user account problem. I had to sign in to windows using the new password and it was fine.
    I would like to know what went wrong when I updated and if it will happen again when I finally do have to update to 1903. I can't find anything about it online.
    Thanks,
    Joyce

    Safe Mode won't accept correct password


    I'm trying to run a third party software (AVG Internet Security) cleanup file that recommends Safe Mode. Yet, when I get to the Safe Mode lock screen, it won't accept my password (note that I am entering the password, not the PIN - it's the same password that gets me into my Microsoft account). Any suggestions what I should try? I'm hesitant to run the cleanup file in full Windows since it's not recommended.

  3. windows 10 not accepting admin password even when it is correct.

    Original title: Is Microsoft even bothered about customer issues.

    I have spend more than 4 hours today trying to find a solution regarding windows 10 not accepting admin password even when it is correct.

    When entering correct password it give a error message as "THE PASSWORD IS INCORRECT. TRY AGAIN" it does not even give an option to change password or reset.

    I have followed the below step provided by a support engineer from Microsoft but still no solution.

    Windows 10 "password incorrect" error

    Kindly have this issue fixed asap.

    Windows mail won't accept correct password

    None of these steps resolves the problem. With the time and date set correctly, troubleshooting unable to find a problem and the latest version of Mail and Calendar installed, I am still told my "account settings are out of date" and constantly asked for
    my password, which is never accepted.
