User Cannot Change Password problem

I have this c# code that works to check the "User Cannot Change Password" check box but how can I unckeck it.

Thanks
string PASSWORD_GUID = "{ab721a53-1e2f-11d0-9819-00aa0040529b}";
 
            string[] trustees = new string[] { @"NT AUTHORITY\SELF", "EVERYONE" };
 
            ActiveDs.IADsSecurityDescriptor sd = (ActiveDs.IADsSecurityDescriptor)user.Properties["ntSecurityDescriptor"].Value;
            ActiveDs.IADsAccessControlList acl = (ActiveDs.IADsAccessControlList)sd.DiscretionaryAcl;
            ActiveDs.IADsAccessControlEntry ace = new ActiveDs.AccessControlEntry();
            foreach (string trustee in trustees)
            {
                ace.Trustee = trustee;
                ace.AceFlags = 0;
                ace.AceType = (int)
                ActiveDs.ADS_ACETYPE_ENUM.ADS_ACETYPE_ACCESS_DENIED_OBJECT;
                ace.Flags = (int)ActiveDs.ADS_FLAGTYPE_ENUM.ADS_FLAG_OBJECT_TYPE_PRESENT;
                ace.ObjectType = PASSWORD_GUID;
                ace.AccessMask = (int)ActiveDs.ADS_RIGHTS_ENUM.ADS_RIGHT_DS_CONTROL_ACCESS;
                acl.AddAce(ace);
            }
            sd.DiscretionaryAcl = acl;
            user.Properties["ntSecurityDescriptor"].Value = sd;
            user.CommitChanges();

Usually check and uncheck is just a 1 instead of 0. Have you tried it yet?
