    Expired Password


    I tried to install an anti virus software yesterday and I am getting the message that my administrator password has expired, but it does not prompt me to input another password, it just keeps saying it is expired when I put in my current password. What do I need to do???

    Re: Expired Password


    ok -heres what i figured out. its about a dozen ways to solve the password issue because each computer company setup each type of computer up differntly.

    as a first step...[computer is off]>[press power button] wait one second and start press the F8 key {"its on the top row of the keyboard"} kind of fast..example three time a second....a black screen should pop up with one of the options that says SAFE MODE. hit ENTER on that and Vista should load with a black screen and a box that says stuff about 'im in safe mode' yadyada...just hit OK or YES. wait about 30 seconds to a minute. Does the screen have safe mode in the corners? IF so then YEY..GO clik the Start button then go to Control Panel. And under User Accounts and Fam Safety clik ADDorRemove user accounts...Find and clik on the account that has the locked password and click REMOVE PASSWORD on the LEFT SIDE of the screen. then click REMOVE PASSWORD onthe next screen . and TADA!! just restart the regular way and that account has NO password. THIS IS JUST ONE OF MANY WAYS TO GET IN YOUR COMPUTER. any problem LMK
    i hope that helps
