Hi there, I'm seeing Windows prompt various users for password changes without the password age being defined in Group Policy. I see some password ages are set in the local computer policy, but these are machines on the domain. It's displaying the message as usual in the system tray.

I ran RSOP and GPResult on a few machines to see if I missed something, but only complexity and password length are defined in the policy.

I'm vveeerrryyyy curious to know where this is originating from as I don't think it's any form of malware, but I want to be sure.

It's not prompting everyone, it's only some users.

Any help is appreciated.
