    Try this and let us know if it works - Before you change anything, make a copy of any files or directories just to be safe!

    There is a file called "local.users" in the \Program Files\HP Web Jetadmin\auth directory
    Look for two lines that look like:
    Admin:$xxxx....encryptedlooking text
    admin:$xxxx....encryptedlooking text

    Edit that local.users file, find the appropriate username (Admin & admin in this case) and erase everything after the colon.

    Then browse to WebJetAdmin and it will prompt for a user name and password,
    use admin (or Admin) and leave the password field blank.
