The computer was updated a few hours ago but it no longer accepts my previous password. I didn't change the password at all. How do I manage to solve the problem? Any suggestion?

If it's linked to an MS account follow the steps on this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026971/microsoft-account-how-to-reset-your-password

If it's a local password try: 6 Ways to Reset Forgotten Windows 10 password for Administrator or Microsoft Account

Be wary of any software you download to reset your Windows password. Try the other methods first. If you do end up needing to download a password reset tool, make sure you scan it throughly with antivirus and antimalware tools before you run it.

You can reset the password on outlook.com if you logged in with Microsoft account. Or you need to make a password reset disk to change the password.
