You need to do this for each indvlidual local user.  There is no global option to change this for all local users.

Are you saying that the box is gray'ed out and you can't check this box?  If so is sounds like you might be in a domain and have a GPO that denies this options.

It does not matter, domain GPO can control local settings.  If you company's security policy says all user id's must have passwords that expire, then the domain admins can control all local computer settings via GPO's that are set at the domain level.

When you go to add/modify a exsting local user are you able to check the "password never expires" box?

don't use the registry, just use the user manager
1. go to start>run and type in "control userpasswords2" without quotes
2. Click the advanced tab
3. Click the advanced button
     A New window will pop up called "local users and groups"
4. Click on the users folder
5. select the user who you want to modify and right click on the account and click properties
6. check the box that says "Password Never Expires" and click okay

you're done, easy as that.
