Tweak description
Prevents users from changing their Windows password on demand. This tweak disables the «Change Password» button on the Windows Security dialog box (which appears when you press Ctrl+Alt+Del). However, users are still able to change their password when prompted by the system. The system prompts users for a new password when an administrator requires a new password or their password is expiring.
