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.
