    To clarify:  Are you referring to a user password or the master server password?

  • If u have home versions of windows

    regedit.exe on desktop machine

    browse to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

    set value of LmCompatibilityLevel (REG_DWORD) to 0x00000002 (2)

    that might help...

    or if u use windows versions above Home Premium, such as professional or higher

    use Run - gpedit.msc on desktop machine

    browse to
    Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
    set value of LAN Manager authentication level to Send NTLM response only (Clients use NTLM authentication only, and use NTLMv2 session security if server supports it; DCs accept LM, NTLM, and NTLMv2 authentication.)

    that might help also...
