Windows account lock : my account frequently getting lock after password reset

OS : windows 7 / win servers

As per our office policy, we are forced to reset the password for every 3 months.

After latest reset my account getting locked for every 5 hours. I have to send request to AD admin to unclok my account.

As per our AD admin, password might have stored in some configuration files, same info might be used to connect regular intervals, and eventually getting locked.

please advice - what are all places we can clear the password cache to avoid this issue.

Also, advice if you have any better solution than this.

Open Control Panel, Credential Manager and remove possible entries that may contain your password. Look in the Windows tab and also the Web tab. You may be using using your Windows passwords for other things. Credential Manager is where you can find these things.
