Windows Password Strength

I have a site where some people, on a 2008R2 domain, are using NO password to login.  We recently had a malware outbreak (wow, what a surprise).  

How can I enforce stronger passwords?  so if user Joe, with no password, logs in with his no password, he is prompted to change that password.  

Thank you.

So i set GP to ask for stronger passwords, and set the flag to "reset password at next login", would that do the trick?  

I'm not much for scripting and aren't even sure where they would go!

Thanks.
