Windows 7 Not being asked to change password on domain


I have a group policy that asks the user to change their password every 90 days and starts asking them at 10 days. We have a 2008 r2 domain and a citrix 2003 server and exchange 2007 on windows 2003.

The problem is that the user will not get challenged on logon on te winodws 7 machine. But if they log into outlook/exchange or citrix they will then be asked to change their password. This was a windows 2003 domain that i upgraded to 2008 r2. Not sure if this is the issue but it only affects the window s7 machines.

What I did is change prompt user to change password from 14 days to 10 days just to confirm the user is getting the group policy and they are.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Is Windows 7 UAC turned on or off?
When a users password is about to expire in windows XP, the user receives a prompt at logon. In Windows 7 (with UAC turned on), there's a "Consider Changing Your Password" balloon displayed in notification area after logon.
