Error connecting to a localhost database

Hi, I'm using asp.net 3.5, C#, sql express with Adv feature on Windows 7 home premium PC
Here is my con string and the run time error:
Login failed for user 'Admin'. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.
    <add name="ConString" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=Survey;User Id=Admin;Password=XXXXXXX"/>

I'm connecting using the SQL login and not Windows's login.  Why am I getting this error?  In the SSE 2005 I created this UserId, select sql login, permissions is also granted for this database so I don't know why am I getting this error.
Ok I tried logging into my sal server using this user id and I got the same error msg"

It is likely that your security mode is set to windows authentication.
In SQL Server Management Studio right cclick the server name and select properties.
Click the security tab
Click Server and Windows.
Click Ok
You will then be prompted to rstart the SQL Service, click Yes
