Change Local Security Settings In Vista

The Local Security Policy is a roster of security settings that you can use to configure Windows for stronger security than the standard Control Panel options allow. The security settings that you can change through the Local Security Policy include options to enforce password rules. For example, you can tell Windows to lock users out if they cannot type the correc account password within three attempts, as outlined here. Other password options that enable you to strengthen system security include Minimum Password Length and Password Must Meet Complexity Requirements.
