Using a dime a dozen, store bought preconfigured PC running Win 7, during the initial setup out of the box, when you are at the user name/ computer name screen, I initially typed in a user name, but then did a "cut", deleting that name and I just entered a password to see if it would let me do this.

To my surprise it did, advancing me to the next screen with just a password.

When I got to the actual login screen and just typed in the password, but it wouldn't let me login. I tried the original user name with the password, but that didn't work.

The solution from Comtrash was to do a restore process, effectively reloading their version of the O/S.

Is this some M$ glitch?

I've been accused (and proven) to speak in code, but I don't even understand what you're laying down. You bought a PC, so why doesn't it work?

Type in your Account name, hit the enter key. Put in your password, hit the enter key. That should get you in.

It did a cut and paste for your sign-on without you hitting a key?
