No I press CTRL-ALT-DEL and then try to change it there.

Try doing it via control panel
I imagine you might not be selecting the correct identity when using ctrl+alt+del

#11 just explained a lot. You can't change a password on there unless you are logged on as you and connected to the network and make sure the domain ID is your network ID not the companies domain server

Why are you coming here rather than your company IT support group?????

Send me a screen shot of your laptop when you are in the page to change the password

That is interesting as I do not have "Change your password" as an option.

However, I have previously changed my password using CTRL-ALT-DLT and never had an issue.

I did go to them, and they took a look and said it was probably something Parallels did. I don't think it is anything to do with Parallels.

And I don't have a restore point, and I think they didn't like that...

What is Parallels?
You have one heck of an IT dept if that is how they take care of you.
