Not being forced to change password

I have used GPO to force users passwords to expire after 90 days.
The GPO also warns users that their password will exipre in N days.
I find that users have to call the help desk if they keep ignoring the warning.
they are never forced to change their password when it expires.
XP Users are forced to change their password when it expires.

Is there a way to force the Windows 7 Users to change thier password once its expired.

Thanks,
Glen

Hello Glen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Strange, it should force them to. If you have password expiration enable for the user with the MAX password age set to 90 days, then they should get the error and prompt in the example screenshots at the top of the tutorial when it is expired to change it and not be allowed to log in until they do. Clicking on "Cancel" instead of "OK" to change it should take them back to the log in screen.

Brink - thanks for sharing how to revise the password reset!~

Oi - this post from 2010 worked GREAT! It is still important. The Windows 7 password reset was bugging me and because I am the only one using this computer - why force a change every 42 days? Thanks for the easy-to-use instructions! I changed mine to unlimited per your excellent post! However, I did not use your link to the command prompt - I found my own way.....via the control panel - just because it was the first time to your site. After joining your forum, now, I feel more secure about clicking the links, the site seems well monitored. Thanks, again!
