    According to Daniel’s article:

    http://petri.com/change_user_password_from_a_remote_computer.htm

    I press Ctrl-Alt-Del in my local computer (which is XP, too) to bring up Windows Securtiy dialog box. Then I click “Change Password …” button to bring up Change Password dialog box. I fill out everything correctly, including username, computer name and passwords. However, it returns that “You don’t have permission to change your password”.

    I do have account in that remote machine and I can log in locally without any problem. I looked security options in local policy but I couldn’t find any related item. Anyone can tell me what is the reason? Is it possible that Windows XP removed this useful feature? I can change password successfully in a remote win2000 machine using this method.
