For what ever reason my known password for logging onto my user for windows 
seemed to have stopped working after using john.  I knew what my password 
was supposed to be.  I just thought that somehow it got changed so I would 
run john and get the changed password.

I had to change the password for my account through a new admin account I 
had set up.  I was then able to get into my account.
