Password expiration is a Windows 7 security feature that reduces security risks by forcing users to change their password periodically. Being a common Windows 7 user, you are able to disable and enable this security features as you wish.

2. Right-click the Command Prompt and click “Run as Administrator.” Choose to allow the program to run with Administrative privileges if asked.

3. When the command prompt appears, type the following command to stop Password Expiration.
