Network Provider RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to this, so not getting where to post.

    I have a doubt regarding "Network Providers" in Windows. Where can I ask? Anyway I am posting it here as I exhausted all searches and still could not find the answer.

    Why do 3rd party network providers like Novell, Citrix get listed after pressing Ctrl Alt Del and "Change Password" after they register as Network Providers? If you select one of these and press ok (without any valid information), it says "Your password has been changed" when actually it won't get changed.

    It has no effect or no use at all being there or is there a way to use the network providers in change password?


    Can somebody point me to experts or help me with this?
