Passwords go missing or do not work - me or them?

When I logged onto a site- the password did not work.
Contacted the admin[lost password?] got a new one
that did not work either???
This has happened at several sites so I am beginning to wonder is something is awry in my system - but what?
Not here fortunately--yet ;-}

Some Passwords can be context sensitive (uppershift key on) Longshot though.

which browser are you using? have you tried both firefox and ie

Indeed- I always copy and paste so that is not the problem.
I always too save the relevant Email off system in an external hard drive.
However and this can be interesting.
One site admin has just come in [after 48 hours] and said OK we have reset it manually- and gave me a simple mumeric string which works- which means possibly them or something between me and them
more puzzlement?????????
