Hello Experts,

We have an asp.net internet site with a couple of hundred users.  The site is secured using Windows security.  Occasionally the user may forget their password and have to rely on us to change it for them which is not immediate.

Do you have any code that would allow a Windows password to be changed and the account unlocked with vb.net code.

Thanks.

A simple shell will suffice :)

Thanks for your answer Dennis.

I think very good process has been made, the only trouble now is that I am getting the message:

System error 5 has occurred.

Access is denied.

I guess the user trying to change the password must be a Domain Controller?  If so do you have any code that I could incorporate into my vb.net code to achieve this.

Thanks.
