I have an NT4.0 domain.  I have a mixture of clients. (95/98/ntw/2k)

We've set a policy that makes our users change their passwords every 60 days.  14 days before the users are forced to change their passwords, when logging on, they are prompted with this:

"Your password will expire in 14 days.  Do you want to change your password now?"

I'd prefer not to have this pop-up 14 days before the forced change, but can't figure out how to change the setting.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott.

Here is the registry hack that you need:

There is no option under User Manager to set the amount of days notice a user gets before he is greeted with this change password prompt on logging in.

You can specify a value in the registry.

Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, go to:
\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Modify the following entry:
PasswordExpiryWarning: REG_DWORD:

You can set this to zero so that the user is notified on the day of expiry.
