If your users have no clue about how to create a secure password, just use one of my favorite ways.

Take a familiar word, name, or whatever to remember. Then substitute numerals, and other symbols that Windows can use, for the actual letters. After that, they can capitalize where needed.

Example: Password would be p@ssw0rD or tiger would be T1g3r.

It's easy to do and possibly fun for your users.
