    I was using Build 7000 with updates through 2-18-09 on a reasonably basis. It was installed with no password being declared. Thus, no password was required when starting up. I did not use W-7 for two weeks, during which the original password "expired." Now, when I try to launch W-7 I get the 'Password expired" window, with three boxes having the following captions in gray type: Password, New Password, Confirm Password.
    What do I enter? Pressing TAB, SPACE BAR does not work. Pressing SPACE and RETURN also does not work.
    There is no "Lost Password" mechanism whereby I enter my e-mail address and a bypass method is given.

    Is there a bypass? Or, do I have to re-install?
    Thank you.
