    If so, then sometimes it may take a bit for the new password to sync.

    You might check to see if you may have needed to confirm the password change from the text code message first before it is actually changed like in OPTION TWO below.

    Tried it a few times. BUT WAIT!!!!! Yesterday the gods smiled on me and it worked (at least for this AM). I can actually log in with a password. AMAZING, thanks for the patience.
    Not only that but I'm no longer prompted for a password in my backup sw and I no longer get nagged for a Product code in Outlook. Don't know why that worked . . . don't care . . . but this is outstanding.
    The downside? I do have a few curiosities I didn't have but that is for another post. Thanks again.
