    I recently fixed a computer for a co-worker and when she got it back, it asked her for her password to logon. It was set to auto-logon when I had it so I'm not sure what happened. My question is this: If i'm logged on as an administrator, can I change her password?? I'm trying to avoid having to get her to download the NT password utility if I can.

    yes, right click on "My computer" then go to "manage" then go to "users and groups" and right click the user and select "reset password"

    You must have administrative privilages, of course, to do this.
