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.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
