Changing Administrator passwords

If your new computer was setup on campus, we recommend that you change the administrator password once you receive it. The password should be at least 6 characters and should include a combination of letters (both upper and lower case), numbers, and other keyboard charaters.

For example: 3R7%tyJok

To re-set your administrator password:

Type Ctrl-Alt-Delete
Click on Change Password
For User Name, type Administrator
For Log onto, select your local computer name (it will be the one that ends with (this computer))
Type in:
--Old Password
--New Password
--Confirm New Password
Select OK

Be sure that the new password is one you can remember or that you have stored in a secure place.
