Password Policy not prompting for expiration

Hi Experts,

I have a SBS 2003 domain with 1 other server and ~20 workstations - windows 7 and windows xp (no vista).

None of my machines prompt when a password is about to expire, which is causing passwords to expire while users are away remotely.

I wrote out my group policy setup in the code attachment.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Under Default Domain Controller Security settings it hadn't been defined.

I have now set it to 14 days - will this work?

Do you have a policy/setting that disables all balloon notifications?

Check these keys and remove them if you find them (the default settings will be put in place again):
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\TaskbarNoNotification
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\TaskbarNoNotification
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\EnableBalloonTips

Don't forget to reboot..
