Windows 7: Change password prompt

Change password prompt

The only suggestion I've seen to avoid this issue is to turn off password expiration entirely, which I can't do. However, the endless prompts to change my password are driving me nuts. Here's the message:

Your password is going to expire in 'n' days. Would you like to change it now?

Generally this defaults to 14 days, and a Windows computer will ask me if I want to change my password - every single time the computer is restarted over the next 14 days. Here's the crazy thing... if I set my password to expire in 90 days, I want to change my password in 90 days, not 76, 77, 78 days... 90 days. At the very least I would appreciate one of those handy "do not ask me again" options, so that I'm not prompted again until the 90 days has passed. This is one of the most-annoying features of Windows, close behind the User Account Control, which asks me if I'm really sure I want to run some program. I mean, after clicking a link, choosing to download the file when prompted, and clicking "Run" in that dialog window (if using IE), I might not be 100% certain I wanted to run the executable, right?

Hello Ironwil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the options in the tutorial below to change the warning time to 0 days, or what you like.
