I am looking for a way to determine which pc’s in my domain have a user logged in and has the ‘Computer Locked’ box on the screen.

I would like to run a report of all such PC’s in my domain. Any ideas?

No this will not work for me for two reasons.

1.  I am not looking for locked out users. I am looking for users who have locked their desktops and left for the day and are still logged in. But I am only interested in the users that have LOCKED  the desktops.

2. These are windows 2000 pcs on a NT 4.0  Domain . No active directory.

Sorry for that, misread your question :)

Anyways not 100% sure but I think may be able to achieve this by auding the events.
If the event viewer logs when the computer is locked then this should work

Here a PAQ that may also be helpful

I do not think this can be done with the auditing you are refering to. But if there were a registry entry (flag) that gets set when the screen is locked that would do the trick for me. I would check for that key on all my machines.

This does not show if the logged on user has the screen locked.
