Password changes AD windows

Hi there,
Running server 2008 ent Network, with windows 7,8 clients.  Most of the times users come to me for the password changes etc.  Is there an easy way so that users can self serve password changes etc.  I am expecting a program on which users can register and then can easily change the passwords.  I do not mind if its available inside my network to the users for password maintenance.
Need help

You have Active Directory

Default domain Security Settings
Account Settings

Password Policy

Use the Security Policy and set your password rules.

Number a days before they need to change
length of password
etc.

Active Directory does not have a native built-in mechanism to allow your users to do self-serve password resets.

I have just recently answered a question exactly like what you are asking. See the below PAQ.

Will.
You should be able to tell us if you are looking for a password reset mechanism. There's a huge difference between changing (and knowing the old one) and resetting (without knowing the old one).
I guess you mean resetting. So please tell us how secure it needs to be and if you have a budget (how much?) for this or not.

under that self serve password change/reset..........
-I do not mind if one of the feature (does not matter knowing or unknowing the history of pass) is password reset.
-100% secure.  Would never want to compromise on security.
-Was looking at FIM, its too expensive.  So I would say $1000 to $1500 for about 700 users.

Will:
-Any cheaper solution than FIM? and

Sorry I want a self serve AD system so that users can change/reset passwords.  I guess you only saw the question heading :)

Thanks for your time guys, really appreciate it.  I will compare the pricing on both software.  I still would like more info on anixis.  I had used one of the products from manageengine in the past (solid performance).  Regards
