    My brother e-mailed me last night and said that his wife was unable to logon to Windows.
    When she entered her password the only thing it said was Enter Password.
    this is a shared computer and he has no problem.

    Thanks John

    Are you saying that the password textbox is not accepting input from the keyboard?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    With that showing up that is what I am thinking, but when he logs on he isnt having a problem.
    Thanks John

    There is the possibility that her user profile has become corrupted. An easy way to check is to create a new account and see if the new account can logon.

    I connected to his PC last night and set passwords for both accounts (there were none) When I logged into the problem account afterwards I didn't get any error message.
    We'll just have to wait and see. I also had hime make a password recovery disk Just in Case!
    Problem seems to be solved for now.
    Thanks John
