hi.. I am in Windows 2000 AD. i found that if I don't check the password never expires check box for my user account. The user account password will expires in about 1 month time. May I know where to control the default expiring date of the user account??

Actually you can find it in an Administration Tools console, but i'm at work and they disable it so i dont remember it clearly, i'll give you the registry path

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\PasswordExpiryWarning

Go their and change the value to the expiary date you want...

PS: SAVE THE REGISTRY by exporting it somewhere safe please, tx
