    Hi,

    I use XP on a stand-alone PC at home. Every month I get the usual nagging messages about changing my password which is annoying as I don't need to change it that often! Is there a way to get XP to only ask me to change my password say once every 3 months?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    start-> run
    type secpol.msc
    Account Policies, then password policies. Minimum password age is how long before passwords expire. 0 means they never expire.

    I have set the password to 90 days.
