Windows 7: Password needs to be changed message

Password needs to be changed message

Does anyone know how to stop Win7 bugging me that the password needs to be changed every ??? days/weeks/months ?

I've had these some times, even when I don't have a password assigned for the admin account, it still shows me "Your password is about to expire and needs to be reset" every so often...

If you are getting a password expired message on an account with no password, you have deeper system problems. A repair install might help.
