    Right-click on "My Computer" then click "Manage"
    expand "Local Users and Groups"
    then click "Users"
    then right-click your
    account name, and click "Properties".

    put a check in "password never expires"

    I can't understand how you would reinstall windows to fix that problem. It
    actually tells you when your password expires that it has expired and to
    pick a new one. If you would have simply typed in a new password you would
    never have had to reformat.

    It was stupid of MS to toggle that feature on, a lot of folks got caught up
    in that.

    I have recently installed windows XP in my computer after a few weeks I
    would get a message on the computer every time I started it saying "Your
    password will expire in 14 days do you want to change it now (Y or N)"
    because I never had a password in for windows I did nothing about it then
    after 14 days the computer just stopped working could not open windows at
    all. So I reinstall windows XP again and had it validated now after a few
    weeks I am getting the same message that your password will expired in 14
    days I have a password in windows now but I think that is just for windows
    to stop anybody opening windows Does anybody know why I keep getting this
    message and what I can do to fix it I think after 14 days it might stop
    working again thank you

    What's weird is that I've never had that happen on any WinXP install. I've
    heard of it happening to others, but every time I've installed XP and set a
    password, it was never set to expire by default. At least I don't ever
    recall setting anything to keep it from expiring when I put in the password.

    It only happened to me once. My daughter's password expired on the machine I
    built for her, I had her setup as a power user. I went in on my admin
    account and toggled the never expire option. That's the only time I've seen

    Regardless, it isn't a mystery as to what to do. You log in and Windows
    tells you "Your password has expired" and gives you the prompt to pick a
    new one. If you are not intelligent enough to be able to read and
    comprehend that prompt, you should not be the person in charge of setting
    the OS up on the machine in the first place. IMHO, of course.

    I had this same problem a while ago. I finally upgraded from win 98 to windows xp (*shame* *blush*). You should remove the password from your account to solve this problem. I found a very clear manual here:
    but it's also finable on the microsoft site i guess...
