Any tools can simplify reading windows event log for NT domain ?
May be some statics, reports, easy to trace why the domain ID is always locked out.

    LogParser ?
    What do you mean Domain ID? - do you mean a user account?
    If so the usual reason for this is either - someone id trying to use thae account/password to break into your system
    or (and usually more liklely)
    There is a service or scheduled task that someone has set up to run with a particular username/password. Subsequently the password has been changed but the service/task continues to try and run with the old password and the account is locked as a result.

             I use Event Log Explorer, but my favourite is GFI Events Manager
