Assuming this is a stand alone computer, not on a corporate domain....
Go to:
Control panel | Administrative tools | Local Security Policy
In the management console browse to:
Security settings | Account policies | Password policy
In the right hand window you can set the password policies. You can extend the # of days for the "Minimum password age" or set it to  0  (zero) to disable it.

If on a domain there is a similar group policy which applies to all domain users.

If you're a domain administrator: check the "Password does not expire" box in the user's AD profile.
If you're not a domain administrator: change the password when that message pops up; you won't be able to do anything about it.
