Re: Password not recognized when using two keyboards
Good grief. How soon we forget! Of course, I did have that problem once

warning about how buggy Vista might be, I was too pessimistic.
Thanks much, and sorry to waste your time on such a trivial matter. Hope all
your queires are this easy to solve!
