    You have junk data on the first fiew lines of your config.php file. Make sure you're editing the file as a plaintext non utf8 file.

          Nope, get a different editor, and save it as a plaintext ascii format, not UTF8, or redo the config file from scratch.

              SHIFT-Right Click - Open With... - choose notepad.

              Or, Start - Run - notepad.exe - File Menu - Open - Browse to config.php - Open - edit using Notepad.

                    You could always either edit the one in the original download, or re-download it, then transfer the info from the one that is corrupt..

                            Except now it's back to saying: Your password is 180 days old, and has therefore expired.
