Hi

A friend of mine recently gets a notice that her password will expire in a few days and she gets the option to renew it but.
She doesn't use a password at her login screen nor anywhere else on the pc (except email,... )

Does anybody know of an answer to this (should she change the password or can she leave it blanc?) she is using windows xp prof(corporate edition)

Follow these steps:

1) Start->Run and enter "CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2"

2) Go to the "Advanced" tab

3) Click the "Advanced" button under "Advanced User Management"

4) Open the "Users" folder and right click the username in question and click "Properties"

5) Check the box "Password Never Expires" and click OK.

That should stop the message

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
