Password expired - change pw -> Access is denied

    I booted up my Vista Ultimate this AM to a "Your password has expired and
    must be changed message."

    It offers me 3 fields, 1st one is filled in (my old pw presumably), 2nd says
    "new pw", 3rd says "confirm pw".

    I fill in 2, and 3, and click -> which results in a brief flash of
    "Changing password..." then "Access is denied."

    I've tried clearing 1 and putting in my pw instead of letting it get filled
    in, the result is the same.

    How do i fix this?

    Thanks.

    It sounds like your user account is set such that it is not allowed to
    change its password.

    - Is your account an administrator account?
    - Can you still log in?
    - Do you have any other administrator accounts available to log in with?

    Yes, the account is an admin for the box.
    No, I cannot login. I only get the "pw expired, change pw"
    No, this is the ONLY account on my machine.

    Thomas-

    That link seems to lead back to this post (on groups.google) when I click
    it, did you mean for it to lead elsewhere?

    Help appreciated thanks.
