is one of those 3 accounts administrator?
if yes, you need to login from that account, and then go to control panel > user accounts
and find the username you are having problems with, and then from there you will be able to change the pasword
It's the administrator account which is password ***** If I go in through one of the other accounts, and try to change the admin password, I get the message:
You are removing the password ***** Name. If you do this, Name will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources......etc etc.
Does this matter?
you can change the password
OK, thanks, ***** ***** just losing website passwords that's no problem.
In the meantime, Control Panel has disappeared, and it's not on the Desktop.
How do I locate Control Panel again? Selecting Start gives me a choice of Programs/System/Command Prompt/Run/Exit/Password ***** but the last option doesn't link to anything.
