My wifes laptop (dell) has a fingerprint reader, which she uses all the time, until tonight when it decided to stop working. For the life of her she could not remember what her password was, and finally after a reboot it let her in. I told her to change her password immediatly for when this happened again, but when she tried to it asks for her old password in order to change it! What kind of crap is this? I then tried to change it with net user <user> <password> and all I get is access denied. How in the world is she supposed to change her password if it is insisting she enter her old one? If she remembered her old one she wouldnt need to change it! I don't use Vista, in case you haven't guessed, I call it the ME version of XP, which at least is a decent MS OS..
