Bleeping Computer does not help people defeat passwords. However, I will post the following info found at Kelly's Korner:


Password Has Expired Message

Start/Programs/Administrative Tools/Local Security Policy/Account Policies/Password Policy. In the right pane, right click, properties, modify (use accordingly). And Start/Programs/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Local Users and Groups/Right Click "User"(intended)/Properties...Or with Admin privileges, at a command prompt type: net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

You have already been advised we cannot and will not assist you regarding passwords, in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/125022/forgot-password/

Do not ask again. You will need to find your answer to this issue elsewhere. You are welcome to post about other issues. Just not repeatedly regarding defeating password protection.
