I am using XP on my office LAN, my password is set to never expire on our server, however when I log on I am being prompted to tell me that my password will expire in x amount of days, I cannot find anywhere in XP to set this to never expire , does anyone have any ideas?

Is it in a domain or workgroup

If in a workgroup, check the local machine settings.

Check the Group Policies

by MountyTech In reply to Password

A policy may have been created to restrict password age. If your are apart of a domain you may need access to a domain controller and check what policies have been applied at the domain level.

You can also check on your local computer by clicking run on the start menu and enter gpedit.msc. Under Computer Configuration expand Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account Policies/Password Policy. The Maximum password age should be set to 0.
