 +  -. Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Setup up a connection or network -> “Connect to a workplace” (OR “Set up a dial-up connection”).

 +  -. Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to log on and you will be presented with the logon screen for the user that last logged in. Press**Esc** or click**Switch User** to view other logon options.
 +  -. There will now appear a blue button near the lower-right corner, just to the left of the red Shut Down button.<​br /> Click the blue button. If you have more than one System-owned VPN/DUN configuration,​ then all of them will appear here as buttons that can be clicked, in which case you click the one you want to use.
 +  -. If prompted, type the username and password for the DUN connection and click the round, blue button to connect. <br /> A dialog appears, showing the progress of the connection attempt.
 +After the connection is established,​ Windows will use the same credentials to log into Windows. If that fails, the VPN/DUN connection remains active, and you will be taken back to the Windows logon screen to submit Windows credentials.
 +Your laptop should now have the new credentials. ​ You can logout, then log back in normally to the domain.
