    My wifes computer is playing up and she thinks she may need to buy a new one.
    Problem is she has forgotten her email password and she runs her business off this PC.
    Someone has said the PC will have saved the password in a text file but where should she look for the text file?

    Thanks for the swift replies guys. Sorry not replied sooner, we shot out to Curry's to get a new PC but thats another story.

    She found her password in an old account book at the bottom of her drawer. It was coded so took some figuring out before she was 90% sure it was the right one. Her emails go through a company server somewhere and trying to get someone to try and help her is useless.

    Once again, thank you for your responses.

    Motorbiking, that page just goes over my head. LOL But thank you for the info. I'm sure if we need it again, (we better not!), my stepson would be able to understand it.
