Changed User Name in Windows 7, not cannot remote login with User Name, must use old user.
Posted on 2013-05-18
I'm juuust now starting to get into servers, networking, and managing computer systems for businesses around my area.
I've run into a problem, and I'm sure it's easy to fix.
The customer requested I change the user name and password on 3 computers. Two are Windows 7 Pro, one is Windows XP SP3 (unsure of version). I'm using, and so are the people trying to login remotely, Remote Desktop Connection.
When I changed the user name and password I could remote login a few hours later, no problems. Then it seems after a while it somehow reverts back and the only way to login is by using the original user name and password.
How do I go about fixing this problem? It has to be a common problem as companies release employees often and just change the user name/password on the machine.
At all times the user name I change it to stays the same at the Windows Login screen. I can input the old password and it logs me in. However remotely I must put in the original user/pass to get in. It's confusing. I've done some research online and came up with nothing. This HAS to be a easy problem to resolve.
