Weird problem with new update! I bet there will be many confudes people after they have installed this update. Got severall cases so far… this will keep me busy next few days I’m sure when all the ppl call me and ask for help.
So far this has happened on Windows XP Home versions with no password set for user account. Seems this happens if you don’t have password set for user account. At least haven’t yet heard about this problem on those machines u have to type password to be able to login to windows.
When rebooting after installation Windows asks for password to login to OS even its not set to do so. Obviosly there is no password to type so one cant login. Leaving the pw input area blank and hitting enter dont help either.
You have to start windows in Safe Mode and set password for account and then boot windows normally and type your new password. After that everything seems to work fine.
I think this is huge problem because most users dont know how to do this. Many ppl dont know anything about safe mode or even how to set password for their accounts if there isnt one. I would call this a bug or at least very big and annoying problem.
