Trying out ubuntu 9.10. After I download 159 updates with update manager and install them I keep getting told I'm using wrong user name and password. This has happened 3 times and I keep having to reinstall the system. Any ideas????

Last Chip. I don't forget my pasword/username, the system doesn't recognize them and just keeps asking for the user name and password.

It doesn't matter. Using my link will allow you to reset your user name and password, so the system can recognise it.

Just a thought - if you downloaded the OS from the internet, did you check the MD5sum to check the veracity of the download?

Yes the download was checked
