    Is there a way to set the "User" accounts to password never expires and
    cannot change password?

    I believe I found a solution that works for Vista Basic.

    This link is the source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251394
    Although the article does not pertain to Vista versions I have implamented
    the following:

    To set user cannot change password:
    net users "username" /passwordchg : no
    To set user account to not expire:
    net users "username" / expires: never

    I hope this helps someone.

    You set the 'username' account to never expire, but this does not effect the
    password. To set the password to never expire, you need to use the following
    command.

    net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

    You need to run this from an elevated command prompt.
