Scanning for Service Accounts

I have an issue.  Somehow my account was put on a server in my data center as a service account.  My password changed and as you can guess, I am locked out over and over again each day.  Is there a way I can scan for a service account or the workstation that is causing my ID to lock out?  We are in an AD domain.  

Thanks
