After a Win 2000 update, a PC with Windows 2000 OS , cannot logon gets error message:
System Cannot Logon: The Parameter is incorrect.
I found this problem in searches, but seems most are resolved with Last Known Config. Mine was not, when I booted into recovery console, it asked for admin password, which I entered, it said incorrect p/word.
I am quite sure of the admin password, and was entering it correctly.
help?!

Hi cami3...

Did you try leaving it blank and just pressing "Enter"?

Hey Cami3,

If you want to fix this problem I have found out that reseting the password is the best and the quickest way to fix these problems. I do not have Windows 2000 but I'm sure it's almost the same as Windows XP. When you turn on your computer you should press F8 or what ever gives you the menu to go into safe mode. When you get that screen arrow down to safe mode and press [Enter]. This will show you alot of writing on the screen but just wait for the logon screen to come up. When you get there access the computer as your name. When you get onto your account go to Start and then click on Run. In that dialogue box type in "Control UserPasswords2" and another dialogue box will appear. Click on "Administrator and then click on reset password. Just press enter when your there. After you do this your password for the administrator account will be blank and all you have to do is type:

Username: Administrator
Password:

Do that for as many accounts as you need to. If this doesn't fix your problem I would just suggest that you reinstall your OS and then move on from there if you don't want to contact a computer store to fix your problem. Hope this helps!!

Thanks for the idea, I hadn't tried that, no luck tho, I upgraded the OS to Win XP, and that did it tho. Thank you for your reply...
