In Windows 2000 I could have swore I seen under Administrative tools an option that would prompt a user to change their password, and now that I want to use that feature I can't locate it. Anyone know where this feature can be activated?

go to administrative tools->computer management

then click on "local users and groups" then "users"
and right click on the account you want to have password expire and click properties.

then untick password never expires and tick users must change password at next login

also if you go to local security policy under administrative tools and click on local policies and security options you can set how long a machine password lasts

and how many days before a user is prompted to change password
