Password never expires Vista Basic
Is there a way to set the "User" accounts to password never expires and
cannot change password?

Re: Password never expires Vista Basic
I believe I found a solution that works for Vista Basic.

This link is the source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251394
Although the article does not pertain to Vista versions I have implamented
the following:

To set user cannot change password:
net users "username" /passwordchg : no
To set user account to not expire:
net users "username" / expires: never

I hope this helps someone.
Dennis

You set the 'username' account to never expire, but this does not effect the
password. To set the password to never expire, you need to use the following
command.

net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

You need to run this from an elevated command prompt.
