I would like the remove the "your password will expire in n days." dialog I get every now and then. I do not have a password set and do not want to set a password so I am a bit puzzled as to why it is prompting me to change a 'password' that I have never set. Again, I do not want to set a password.

If this is a local computer user/not part of domain user then you can  

Right Click on My Computer go to Manage then in manage window select Users & groups.
 You will see all of your computer's users there. Double click on your user and Click on 'Password Never Expires'.
