Not natively - at least not specific to word usage. However, if you enforce
password complexity as part of your group policy it may help...

Thank you for your time and attention,

Subject: Prevent users to use specifics words in Passwords

Hi all,
I'd like to know how to prevent users from use specifics words in their
password in Windows Server 2003. In the company users are required to change
their password every 45 days, but some users use some words related to the
company or the business, there's a way to prevent this in Windows Server
2003? Some kind of dictionary for words that can't be use?

Thank you and best regards,
Alberto Medina
