All Users including admins are not able to change passwords. People passwords are about to expire and they either get the message "you do not have permission to change your password" for the XP users or Access denied for the Vista and Windows 7 users. I need to get this fixed ASAP any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried "Number -1" solution and added the Eveyone group's "Change Password" option in the security settings and nothing happened. I also added the same setting to "Authenticated Users" and still nothing.

I take it back this did not work, This problem is still happening, I only thought it worked because for some reason it worked for 2 of the users having the problem, but since then we found more than 10 that this situation is still happening to.
