Hi- I think this is a self inflicted wound but don't know how to fix it. I wanted to join a home workgroup using my office computer. I renamed my computer to jeffs dell computer so we could recognize it on the network (deleted the office name of vdm:jlevitan. I deleted the domain and tried to create a workgroup which failed. While doing this a windows update downloaded and I allowed it to run. The computer worked fine until I shut it down and tried to restart it the next day.
Windows boots up and asks for a pass word. The password request used to be three lines...Name, domain, password.
now it is just name and password. It lists the name jlevitan which it has always listed, but does not recognize the password that I have used for years and was not changed.
Any suggestions? Did eliminating the domain change what I need to enter for the password? HELP. My life is locked on this computer.
