Windows 7 - Password Expiry Message at Logon

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?

Just do it from AD:

Highlight the users that you want to change

Right mouse button, properties

Account Tab

Check 'User must change password at next logon'

I want people to be prompted that their password is going to expire soon and to think about changing it. I want this popup:

We do have that setting enabled and set for 14 days. We only get this prompt, noting at logon. Is there something else I should look for on why there are no messages during logon?

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
