    Unable to create password for user account in Windows Vista

    It is not possible to create a password for protecting my PC running on Windows Vista. Even though I followed all the instructions in ‘User Accounts’, I keep getting the message “Windows cannot change the password” on clicking ‘Create Password’ link. How can I fix up this issue?

    Hi friend,

    Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to create password for user account in windows vista:-

    1. click on Start and then Control Panel.

    2. click on the User Accounts and Family Safety link.

    3. Note:- If you are viewing the classic view of control panel, you wont see this link. simply double click on the user accounts icon and proceed to step 5.

    4. click on the User Accounts link.

    5. In the make changes to your user account area of the user accounts window, click the Create a password for your account link.

    6. In the first two text boxes, enter the password you would like to start using.

    7. Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your password correctly.

    8. Click the Create Password button to confirm your new password.

    9. You can now close the user accounts window.

    10. Create a windows vista password reset disk. This isn't a requried part of creating a new password but i highly recommend that you do it.

    11. A password reset disk will protect you from the consequences of forgetting your new windows vista password.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.
