    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know how someone can change a user password from his own PC.
    I have a user that change his password. I am not sure how he has done that. since I always have to go to the domain server to change users password.
    He had administrative access to his PC, since then I have change it to restricted.
    I am just curious of how he changed his password. since I have all user set for the password not to expired and user can not change the password... well that much for that.

    Thanks

    Sounds like your trying to hack an administrator's password.

    Never mind I went to the server and he was the only user that had "User cannot change password" unmark so I guess he was able to chnge his own password. I change that. Here we do not allow anyone to change passwords. Well they can but I have to do it for them.

    thanks
