A computer i was working on had user accounts and i was trying to get rid of them so when you start windows you dont have to type in a username and password it starts automatically for you. I looked up some steps on google and it told me to go into Computer Management and go into User. After doing that i saw all the user accounts and disabled all of them. Now when i start windows it still comes up with the log prompt with the same username but now the password is not what it used to be and i cannot even log into windows.

Can anyone help me with this cheers..

Try safe mode / administrator account, reverse the tweaking in computer management, reboot

Click start, control panel, user accounts, user accounts, change the way user log on, tick both boxes, apply changes, reboot
