    About every 30 days I get the following Logon Message
    " Your password will expire in 13 days, do you want to change it now" I just click OK, and then OK at the next screen where you could type in another password. I did not set up the computer needing a password, and I do not want to be bothered typing in a password. It isn't that big a deal, but is there a way to stop it from asking if I want to change my password every 30 days?
    Thanks much !

    Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management. Then: computer management (local)\ system tools\ local users and groups\ users. Right click on the account you want to change (in the righthand pane) and select properties. There is a checkbox for "password never expires". I believe you have to be logged in as administrator to change it.
