Thanks for the reply.
I know the username, it's the most simple one I use, infact, it's the same as my display name here.
I am curious now to know exactly what went wrong and see what the user ended up being (maybe i miss hit a key). I know it's not the password, again that was a simple to rememebmr one and I even double check using the method below:viewtopic.php?f=90&t=110928&p=621487#p621487
which work just fine, don't seem to be able to find somehting similar for username.
I installed it on an old laptop for the purposes of exploring it, so security was not uppermost in my mind, simple user, simple password.
Maybe a reinstall is the only way.
