    OK here's the deal... I dont' know that much about W2K.. and when my mother came to me saying that her logon was putting up a new message she hadn't seen I decided to take a look.

    This is what I found.:confused:

    Logon Message
    Your Password will expire in 13 days. Do you want to change it now?
    Yes or No.

    The deal is there is no password set because there is no real need for one. And I have her set up as a power user.

    If anyone can tell me what it means and or if anything will come of it I would appreciate it greatly.

    Thanks
    Melissa:D

    Have her go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Local Users and Groups, Users. Click on her profile and in the General Tab Check the box that says Password never expires.
