i would use malwarebytes on each PC,and have them disconnected from the network, until you are sure each is ok.
check the server(s) first.
the accounts can be unlocked in active directory on the server

Mcklane,

Under group policy settings, under computer configuration and security settings, select account policies / password policies and modify the number of failed attempts to login before a lockout occurs to 0. I'm not looking at a group policy so I'm not sure of the exact syntax, but that's close.

Also refer to this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736516(WS.10).aspx
