This problem occurs on your computer running Windows for Workgroups 3.11,LAN Manager 2.2c, Network Client for MS-DOS, or Windows 95.

This problem does not occur when you run Windows NT Workstation.
This problem occurs if you select the "Users must log on in order to changepassword" check box in the Account Policy dialog box of User Manager forDomains; by default this check box is cleared.

To work around this problem, clear the "User must log on in order to changepassword" check box on your Windows NT Server.
