Help folks: a strange thing has been happening to my PC, each time i switch on before windows starts a small box pops up saying you have so many days to change your password, if i click yes i have to put in the original password whichi d do not know, because there is no indication what this box is from, clicking no it boots into windows xp
i just dont know what program is generating that prior to windows booting. Help

Start/Run and type " control userpasswords2 " and within this cfg will be an item to remove the "x days before password expires" message.
