    Hey guys,

    I booted up my XP Pro machine for the first time this morning, and low and behold I got one of those "Password will expire in 11 days, do you want to change it...." popups.

    I don't use any logon passwords on this machine. How can I remove this popup?


    Thanks

    Heeter

    right click on my computer, go to manage
    then user accounts, select your account (right click & go to properties), and tick "password never expires"

    I can't right click on the account.

    Is there maybe a regedit for this instead?

    Thanks kC
