I believe the ASPNET user account password has been compromised and I would like to change it.  Everything seems to point to creating a new user and putting the unencrypted username and password in the machine.config file.  I simply want to change the password and keep the setup as it currently is..  How can I do this?

The "aspnet_regiis -i" command seems to do the trick, from what I've read, but you might want to read up a bit on that command before executing it.  It does lots of other things, apparently, and can cause problems in a production environment.

I tried it...it didn't work.

What I had to do was uninstall, delete the ASP.NET user and then reinstall.  It came out ok and didn't wreck the asp.net 1.147 underneath and seems to have worked ok.
