I have a problem with Windows accepts only not the connection password.

Original title: why have I lost my windows login password?

It's strange. Suddenly, I found that my Windows 7 login password is more accepted. Of course I made sure that caps lock is not on, typed correctly, etc. I have made no changes in the system and have had the same connection for more than a year.
I restored it with system restore (good to enter Safe Mode was not easy... topic for another time).
So now I'm back to normal and created a password on a flash drive recovery disk.
But, why or how would it happen?
Very curious.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions.


If you were able to get in Mode safe without logon then automatic logon mode must have previously been activated.

To find out what happened to your password you could do this:
  1. Log in under your spare admin account.
  2. Click on the globe to start, and then type the three letters cmd into the search box and press ENTER.
  3. Enter the following command and press ENTER:
    NET user 'Jack '.
The command will tell you everything about the account of Jack, for example when the account of the last use and what was his password has changed. This implies, of course, that you have a fully tested alternative admin account. Having one would have saved you perform a system restore, even as having a spare House key removes the need to break a window...

    Thank you very much in advance - it would be a big help (gibbest album with this problem is the honeymoon ;-))

    Shared albums are essentially photo streams. They will always show the photos in the order that add you them to the album.  If you want your photos to appear in a specific order, you must add them to the album individually, one by one, exactly in the order of your choice.  You cannot add all photos in an album at once - which will give unpredictable results.

    For example, to create a new album with your photos.  Then ctrl-click on the album and select "Keep arranged by Date, oldest first" to sort the album.  Now add each photo from the album shared individually.  There will be a lot of work.
