I have a ThinkPad laptop with windows 10 installed. All of a sudden, the computer refuses my login attempt after system update. It says my password is incorrect. However, I didn't change the login details for months.

Please suggest me a way to fix the issue.

Here's a list of a few programs to try ...

I'd used ophcrack and it worked for Windows 7, apparently doesn't work for 64-bit windows 10, at least according to the article. I've also used Konboot which bypasses the login screen, so you'd still need your password to change your password in the settings. Haven't tried to other ones, perhaps one them will work.

Or hey, just use this method, britec09 is good youtuber ...

Yes. I tried Ophcrack and there is no win10 iso from its website. One problem, the lazesoft tool seems not free.

Well, I just downloaded it, created a USB key, created a password for my account. Booted off USB key and reset the password. Rebooted and computer than logged right in without requesting a password. So it seems quite free to me !

it is a local account.

P.S I got the computer unlocked by enabling the default admin account. This tutorial did a great help:
