Account Name not in System?
Here's the scenario:
I power on my laptop, it brings me to a welcome screen and displays a username and password field to enter in my password - as with any laptop. Apparently I can't remember my password, so I am locked out of the laptop. I have tried a few tools to recover my password, but, when my tools search my system for the username/account name that I am trying to get into, there is nothing found.
So say the account name/user name is 'JohnP', my password crack tools don't see an account name/user name listed as 'JohnP'. I see one for Admin and Guest, but not JohnP. Does anyone have an idea of why this is?
