Currently our password expiry notification are done via a popup balloon at the bottom right corner of the Windows 7 screen. We have it set through GPO with this setting: Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration.

That creates a prompt in the lower right hand part of the screen. I have worke aother places where it will prompt you at the Windows login as soon as you log on. It is a window that pops up before your desktop titles Logon Message and says "Your password will expire in x days. Do you want to change it now?". If you click yes it brings up the change password window. If you select no it just continues to logon.

Where do I go in GPO to force this logon message at logon instead of just the balloon method?
