Password Protected File

I used Quicken yesterday, did my backup, etc. When I launched it today it is asking for a password to open a file (Enter Data File Password). Nothing I try works. The only thing that has changed is that I changed my Windows password (I have tried the previous password and my new one).

Any ideas?

    Thank you; I did click on that link and the screen just flickers and takes me nowhere. I just ended up going one backup version older and it didn't have a password then downloaded the missing transactions and reclassified them.

    You didn't mention if you tried the "Forget Password?" option.  It should be to the right of the password box.  Just click on it and follow the instructions to access your data file.
