That is strange did you try with a different browser on the Windows 8 machine?

Sorry guys, I understood that he's trying to say that he messed up logging into the newly created user-account and I asked him to read the TOU.

I can only add, no computer help site I know of will or should help with password issues or bypassing passwords as a general thing. I expected and see the same here.

However, considering this is a website and not a computer he is trying to access, we can still suggest things such as :-

Have you tried the same user name and password on the Windows 8 machine that works OK on the Windows 7 one? If the password and user name are the same, but still locked out on the Windows 8 computer, try clearing cookies and temporary files on it.

@b0bl335wa663r,

 

The OP is trying to log into an employment agency and having issues, not into the computer.  Your comments in post #7 show you have not read the request and understood it.

Oops, I did understand the problem in completely different manner. The section of the forum added more confusion for me. I edited out my comment #1 CompCav.

 

Thanks. :)
