    Change Domain Password: Your domain account has expired

    Home network
    My Laptop a HP Vista sp2, I am a user with admin priveledges
    my wife's pc win2k

    Had the network for some time and was always able to access my wifes
    pc from my vista laptop but I havent done so for some time

    I'm about to move her data to an xp m/c and was about to do some file
    moves from my vista laptop

    When I went to access my wifes pc via the network I received a dialog
    box headed 'change domain password'
    Well I have never intentionally asked for pwords to be renewed so
    can't imagie why vista is asking me this

    so entered my existing pword and a new one etc
    vista replies that my pword is incorrect

    I go into cp/user accts and make sure the pword I am using is correct

    Can someone tell me what is going on and how to overcome it please

    Fortunately solved my own problem

    For some inexplicable reason, on my wife's pc the user name I use to
    access it from my vista laptop had 'prompt for new password when user
    next accesses ' ticked
    removed the tick and said 'never' to change and all is ok
