    Can not log into admin, but I am using the correct passw.

    HELP...I can not log into my account..I am using the right password. I used the machine earlier, then came back and it would not accept the password. The pop up said..."can not log onto account at this time..see to fix any problems"...or something like that.

    The computer turns on fine...I can log onto the other accounts.

    I have my liveaccount password....

    Can I create another Admin account to take off the password to that admin account??
