    when clicking on My Network Places and clicking on a computer within the network, we get a message that says 'password has expired' when logging into that computer. Any help on how to remedy this?

    FYI, we're using Windows 2000 and the computer we're trying to access is Windows XP.

    It sounds like the problem is not with the local computer but with another one on the network. Set the password on the other computer to not expire

    our resident computer guru was able to figure this out on his own.


    thanks for everyone's assistance.
