    Vista Home Premium password expiration

    Is there a way to set passwords to never expire in Vista Home Premium?
    Thanks.

    Sorry, I gave you the link, but not the summary: (see link for instructions)

    Maximum password age
    Values for this policy setting range from 1 to 999 days.
    (You can also set the value to 0 to specify that passwords never expire.)

    That won't work in Home Premium. There are no Group Policy tools in that SKU.

    Use this method instead:
    1. Click the Start button
    2. Right click Command Prompt in Accessories
    3. Select "Run as administrator" and elevate
    4. Inside the elevated command prompt run this command:
    net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

    Close the prompt. That should set the expiration to infinite.
