Have a Win 7 Pro machine that serves to run as file storage and runs an application across the network.   One user account available, no guess accounts enabled.


User account looks as follow


Username:  admin

Password:   x0xxxxxx    (uses a zero instead of the letter "o"


When accessing the application for the first time or a reboot, those credentials work to have access. 

RDP also accepts that login and password



Now when I try to enter those credentials to logon to the machine locally while in front of it,  it refuses the password. I have to enter the same password but I must use the letter "o" instead of the number 0.  It is reversed from what is used for both RDP and accessing resources on the machine on the network.



Never seen this happen in my life.  Any ideas?
