Since you do not have Group Policy Editor on your computer, it needs to be done through the registry

 

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetLogon\Parameters

 

DisablePasswordChange  Change the value to 1

Just a note...before making or anticipating any registry muddling...please back up your registry.
