Windows 7: Change password expiry date to Never

Change password expiry date to Never

Hello, My password for my user account expires every 6 weeks, I would like to change this to Never.
I cannot find tools to do this from the GUI and am unsure how to do it from the command line.
I have, The Windows Command Line Beginners Guide, but it doesn't address this issue.
Using the net user command I can bring up the user account info, but where to go from there?

Edit: I just found this.
Password Expiration - Enable or Disable

This should do it for me, Brink has an answer for everything

Hello Dorian mate just what are you using software wise for your user account because in Windows usually one needs to go into the User account setting in Control Panel and reset the admin password which is what I am assuming you mean?? Have you tried doing that??

It might be worth going through this User Account - Reset Password in Windows 7
