Can Log into Tomcat

Please I know this simple for you Gurus for newbies like me am totally.

Am using Apache Tomcat 7 on Windows 7 (64 bit), my JDK 6.1 is 64 bit, my AT 7 is 64 bit, HOME_JAVA is set other AT wont start,

comments have been removed from the C:\apache-tomcat-7.0.19\conf\tomcat-users.xml
contents are:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>

Once just once Tomcat/Tomcat worked then nothing works again, I am totally convinced AT is not reading the tomcat-users.xml because when I rename and delete it, I get no error at all just the usual HTTP 401 error, please help, I have tried other forum but I guess they are not interested in simple questions.

P Lease help, I keep seeing comments about Realms but I don understand

Please do not post the same question more than once. Please continue the discussion in your original topic.
