Morning Folks,

my work pc is networked up and all access is controlled by a main active directory users account. This morning so far my account has been locked out 5 times with no reason as far as i can see. Is there a way i can check to see if someone else on the network is trying to use my password, or if there might be another reason??

Thanks a lot,

Check the integrity of the security logs.

I.e log on as administrator, control panel, administrative tools, event viewer, security

Get EventcombMT free from microsoft & run it on your domain controller searching for locked out accounts. it will tell you what machine is locking out the accont

If they have a virtual machine and are using the same user name on the virtual machine as the one in active directory, that is a problem.

Check to ensure that Adobe and Java updaters aren't to blame; they tend to cache credentials.
