Changing the "Change Password Prompt"

Posted on 2004-11-10

I am running in a 2003 domain with Citrix Metaframe XP.  The problem we have is that when a users password prompts to be reset afte expiration many of the users say Yes to changing it right there.  We have instructed them that they need to say no and go into Citrix, where if they hit Cntl F1 it asks them to change their password as well, but it changes it for the domain and for citrix which keeps them the same and then all single sign on works.

The problem is that no matter how many times I stress this it still happens.  What I want to do is be able to change the wording in the popup box.  I could use GP to disable the "change password" option on Cntl-Alt-Del but it would still happen when they are prompted.  

Does anyone know if and where I can change this in the registry or GP

    Can't be done I'm afraid.
    You cannot change the message box, neither disable the message from popping up (unless you change the domain so that the passwords don't expire).

    It is a system message that cannot be altered.
