SBS 2003 Profile keeps locking out when accessing network resources it has permissions for

I have one user on SBS 2003 that has always had access to the mapped drives on the network and the ability to access them at will.  Suddenly after resetting this users password a couple of times, she can no longer access anything on the local network, and anytime I try, the accounts gets locked out. I have to unlock the account everytime just to get logged onto the profile. Her permissions havent changed, I even added her to the admin group for testing purposes. I haven't had any luck getting the profile to access the network like normal again. Help?

You might the network drive mapped on some workstation with invalid saved credentials.

Is this user accessing the shares from her usual computer, or has that changed as well as the password?

I thought that might be the case, but I can't re-map the drives because the profile isnt allowed to even access the server. Is there a way to reset or remove the saved credentials?

User is using the same computer as always, only thing that changed was her password for the network.

Unfortunately you will have to pinpoint where the bad attempts are coming from through your audit logs.

Once you figure that out, you can undo the script or disconnect the map network drive using the saved credentials.

For reasons like this, I prefer to map drives using the Drive Maps Preference with a GPO.

That makes it easier. How did the user map her network drive?

All of the sudden...I can now access the drives again. *frustration*

I believe the drives were mapped by browsing to the server and mapping to each share. That is my best guess as I didn't setup this network.

Check for saved password under Advanced user account option from control panel on Windows XP or Credential manager on windows vista/7

Just logged the user out, upon trying to login, same result: account locked out, must unlock to login and no access to the shares.

I disconnected all the networks drives, re-mapped each and I haven't had any further issues with this profile. I am a little annoyed and curious about why the credentials weren't updated when I changed the profile password in the first place.
