I had a password and user name that has expired. The program I was running apparently
expires them after 1 year. I had to reboot and when I came up it wanted the password. Since
it told me it had expired how can I get to the desktop to set up a new user name and password
I am stuck on the windows login screen. HELP please :tazz:

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 (possibly F5) until you get options, select safe mode, press enter, click the administrator account then see if you can change the password for the other account
