    Note   Note
    The User must change password at next logon box for this local account will automatically get cleared (unchecked) after they change their password at sign-in, but password expiration will still remain enabled for this local account unless you disable it (if wanted) later.




    That's it,

    This helps for compromised machines especially after removing malware, forcing passwords to be updated for standard user accounts or other Administrator accounts as a SysAdmin.
