Hi there,

Depends how you process the password resettings,have better instructions for the password reset on link below:

thank you for the advice, but before i use those settings, pls assure me that i wont loose my data and applications. have you ever tried it? because i am worried this being a new account i may not be able to access some data and applications already there.
