Two months ago i installed ubuntu using wubi and everything was great i had windows and linux installed alongside but then i heard their was a update to ubuntu (8.4) so i uninstalled the old ubuntu and installed the new one again using wubi, It had no problem installing but just one thing when i enter my account name and my password it goes shows the wait sign then just comes back, i know i entered the right password because i wrote everything down and if i had entered the wrong password it would tell me. Do you have any idea on what could be causing this? i already tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

There is actually an easier way of doing it.

1. Power on the computer
2. Press ESC at the grub prompt.
3. Use the down arrow key to highlight "Recovery Mode" and press enter
4. Your system will boot up to the root shell.
5. Type in passwd <username> - hit enter and type in any password.
6. Type in reboot.
