Computer Account Locks

My computer account keeps locking out - traced it back to a certain computer IP.  

On that computer are a number of scheduled tasks, which run under my account.  At first, it was thought one of these scheduled tasks had the incorrect password.  However, all the passwords were changed and account keep locking out from this machine.  In fact, none of these scheduled tasks have run when the account has been locked out.

I just ran malwarebytes software and it found
PUM.Hijack.startmenu
and
PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter

I'm about to have the malwarebytes remove these items.

Looking for suggestions on other items I can check on this machine?

Computer is XP - 32 bit.

Sorry.  To clarify, I have several computers.  What I was saying is that our server team was able to track down to the troubled PC.

"Network team was able to fix" is not an acceptable reason for deleting a question.

If there actually was a solution, please post what it was.

This was probably a bad question, as the issue could have been a million things.

I was not able to test any suggestions, so I didn't feel comfortable awarding points.  However, I'm fine if we wish to go that route, given I was searching for suggestions.  

_alias99- your decision.

As for the solution, I'm not sure exactly what was performed.  Sorry.

I do appreciate the feedback for this question and apologize for the confusion.
