A) You may need to switch off the "autocomplete" facility within windows which remembers passwords.
This will automatically enter the previously saved password and not prompt you to change it.
To reset the autocomplete facility:
- click on Windows 'Start' button at the bottom left of your screen
- select 'Control Panel'
- select 'Internet Options'
- select the 'Content' tab at the top of the pop up window
- click on the 'autocomplete' box or select "Settings" in the Autocomplete section.
- remove the tick from "Forms/User names and passwords on forms"
- click 'Clear Passwords' from the Clear Autocomplete history section.
- Finally click the 'OK' button to save the changes - this should clear the password for the portal and allow you to enter you new one.
B) You may have entered the password incorrectly or copied a space along with the password.
To copy and paste your password highlight it with your mouse, right click the highlighted text and select 'copy' from the list of options that appear.
Next go to the log in page and enter your username, right click in the password box and select 'paste' from the options that appear.
Make sure there are the same number of dots in the box as there are characters in the password and click on 'login'
Your password will expire after 3 months.
When your password has expired and you attempt to login, you will be prompted to set a new password for your account. You will not be able to login until you have entered a new password.
Passwords should be at least 6 characters long and include both letters and numbers but NOT special characters such as !*@ etc.
