HI Experts,
                     Windows XP is giving me a message in the system tray "Windows needs your current credentials. Please lock this computer, then unlock it using your most recent password or smart card. Please click the icon to see more information, I have tried a recommended fix by Clicking Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
Under computer configuration, expand \administrative templates\system\logon\.
Select the "Always wait for the network at computer startup" value.
Then I  configured/set this to "On".

However, the problem still exits..

Any ideas to permanently eradicate this error..??

Thanks alot..

One solution would be to force an Group Policy Update.

To do this type:

gpupdate /force

from the command prompt

So, does that mean after applying a policy and then restarting the machine does not really solve the problem - Unless I apply the gpupdate /force?

Many Thanks.

This problem again was related to my previous question in which we have problems of synchronization
between our two domain controllers..
