How can a user keep getting locked out of machine while using it on a domain

My User Account is locked out again.  I was in Alliance and the login window popped up.  I entered my user name and password but it would not take it.
This is the same thing that has happened from time to time when using Outlook. The client is using the correct password and it still keeps locking him out and I have to unlock him after three tries..
the user is in the middle of working with different programs

You'll need to turn on auditing for account logon failures on your Domain Controller(s) and then parse the Event Log for the failures.  The failures will include an error code of why the logon failed, and will tell you which computer the failures came from.
