    Anyone know how to get XP home and Pro to force the user to change his or her password every 60 days or so? A popup alerting the user to change the password? Thanks

    In XPPro you can try start/programs/administrative tools/local security policy

    Then from there look in Account Policies and click on Password Policies. Double click on Maximum password age on the right. This alters the time for password expiration. Not sure what this does for the popup warning...
