    no, but I have just clicked ctrl, alt, delete twice and got a login window where I could see the text being typed. And on the keyboard in conjunction with the function key on cetain letters there are blue numbers, and they seem to be typing instead of the text. Can I turn this off?

Self Password Reset

Resetting forgotten login passwords of domain users is a crucial bottleneck, which a help desk technician has to handle as a routine. A password reset ticket or a forgotten login password has to be addressed within minutes in-order to avoid employee downtime and productivity loss. It is estimated that atleast 40 percent help desk tickets are related to password resets and on an average each change password ticket consumes 20 minutes of a help desk technician's time.

A self service password reset solution that allows an end user to self reset his domain password in windows active directory remotely from a web browser without calling the helpdesk is an essential requirement. A self service password reset and management solution not only reduces the number of help desk password tickets but also enhances the productivity of an end user by averting unnecessary and prolonged waits.
