Account Lockout Windows 7 Professional

Our receptionist keeps getting locked out of her PC. She is not entering the password wrong nor is she forgetting to toggle Caps Lock. As soon as you unlock her account from Active Directory she can sign in but we're unsure of what may be causing this lockout to occur. Perhaps a cached password somewhere? Any pointers are welcome as we are stumped.

You will probably need to check if their any restriction such as One Time Login Password or Password Expiry time set up for that system. Because if any of the two things is set up the user will not be able to log in next she logs on onto the system

In the first case a new login password has to be generated because the old password was valid only for one login session and thats why it is called a One Time Login password.

In the second case the User's password expires after certain set amount of time which can be any time ranging from 5 minutes to 90 days or even more. So after that the password will expire and if the user logs out of the system once the password has expired he/she can not log in again with the same password.

Thanks !!
