How do sequential letters affect password security strength

Specs: Windows XP
I was wondering about password construction there seems to be something about not using any sequence of three letters or numbers in a password like abc or 123.

I can see not using a sequence as the password but what problem can there be using a sequence in a password like:

xYz123!!!

Is that insecure because of the sequences?

If someone was trying to guess your password, the last three letters of the alphabet and the first three numbers would increase their chances a lot.
