How to log on to Windows XP if you forget your password or if your password...


Introduction:
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you
must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This
article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password
so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work
if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer,
or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to
your account.
If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator,
unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other
programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the
computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone
could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to
private information.
This article is intended for a beginning to intermediate computer user.
You may find it easier to follow the steps if you print this article first.
More Information:
Reset forgotten or expired password
If you forget your password or if your password expires, there are two
methods that you can use to log on to create a new password. One
method is to use a password reset disk, if you have created one. By
using the password reset disk, you can recover your user account and
your personalized computer settings. Another method is to log on using
the administrator account to delete the forgotten password and then to
create a new password.
If you have a password reset disk, go to method 1. If you do not have
a reset disk, go to method 2. The instructions guide you through each
step and help you verify that the problem is resolved.

Yahoo.com tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?


If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)
http://thingsaboutcomputer.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-unlock-yahoo-when-account-is.html

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.
