A user is experiencing some issues where they get locked out every so often.

I looked everywhere and I tried various suggestions online.

Can anyone tell me why some users get locked out every so often, and what can I do to find this problem and solve it.

I looked in the event viewer nothing.

thanks

Did the user just change his password? It might be that the old password is still used somewhere, either being used to run a script/task or currently being used as a TS session somewhere.

Check the security event log on the domain controller, it will indicate which computer the account is being used.
