In an SBS 2008 domain I have a user with a laptop (user in AD, laptop not in domain) who aboout every 6 weeks gets locked out.

How can I find out which behaviour / script causes this lockout? The user assures that he did not login with wrong password.

Many thanks - Michael

ALockout.dll? (On the client computer, helps determine a process or application that is sending wrong credentials.) --> Does it run on Vista?
