I have a users account which keeps locking out. It does this sporadically when the user locks the screen.
The User has had their account recreated in Active Directory but it still keeps locking out.
The user has had all their PC exquipment completely swapped out ( PC, keyboard etc )
The user is using windows XP
I have stood over the user, watched the user lock the screen and when they try to unlock the PC the account has locked out.

I want to install a keylogger ( with her consent ) to try see if something is locking out her account,
but any of the ones I have tried do not record when at the "Computer locked - press Ctrl-Alt-Del to unlock" screen

Can anyone offer some advice on
1.The problem
2.What keylogger to use

Are they logged on to a dfferent pc (or server??) still?  Have they mapped a drive using a password which has since expired?
 - and check the Security Logs on the Domain Controller too....

I'd also check the Screensaver settings on the pc too - are they trying to configure their own password here?

 - I'd say the Outlook one and the Delete Local Profile one would be worth a spin...
