I have one adman account that has no password, and the built-in
adman account that doesn't have a password. Awhile ago, I put my
computer to sleep. I woke it up and it is now the adman account
that I primarily use asks for a password that I never set. I
typed in some random password in the box and I got "The password
is incorrect, try again," I clicked ok and it goes back to this
loop. I went into the built-in adman account and I have no
problems getting in. I went to search box and I typed netplwiz.
I clicked enter. I selected my primary user account from the
adman console and it was checked saying "Users must enter a
password to use this computer." I unchecked the box. I clicked
ok. I switched to my primary account and it worked. I put my
computer to sleep. I opened it up and it asks for a password
that's never been set. This time I pressed enter and I was in.
The thing is jaws is saying I have a password, but I don't. I
did the same experiment on the other one and it doesn't ask for a
password to wake up the computer. Since I have an unlocked adman
account, can I reset the other user account?
