Windows 7 Password Expiration

This is related to other "Ask the Experts" questions about the Windows 7 balloon to remind users about expiring passwords. The posts are 2011 and older. The issue is the balloon is very small and users miss it. This generates calls to the helpdesk to reactivate the users accounts.

Has anyone found a better way, or is their a WIndow's enhancement, to notify users that their passwords are about to expire?

Thank you,
Stephanie



Right now, nothing has change on this front.

What I have suggested is adding a login script that will check password expiration and add an additional popup like so

or you can setup a script to email users when there password is going to expire

Here is a script on TechNet

Why not set up a policy to reminder the user at login starting, say 14 days before expiry, and offer to change it then, that makes the reminder bubble redundant , it's "in their face" before they start



Hey MASQ,

the script that is linked above does just that. you just have to adjust the warningdays variable



I'm sending this over to the AD guys to test and comment. I'll select the solution on Monday.

Thank you both for your comments and recommendations.

The Network Gurus at work are going to tweak the script above and roll it out this week.

Thank you.
Steph
