I'm creating a custom log in page on a wordpress install and would like to remove the "Lost your password?" link from the "ERROR: Invalid username. Lost your password?" message that comes up if the user inserts the wrong password.

I've been looking in the wp-login.php but must be missing something, can someone point me to the right file?

I've found the generated text in the wp-includes\user.php file so removed it there and done what I was looking for.

It's not advisable to change core files (this will be lost with an update, and potentially mean plug-ins do not function properly). See the related question on how to do this without modifying the core files. –  Stephen Harris Feb 29 '12 at 11:28
