Please check if user has logged in somewhere like mapped drive or any services with stored password.

Update that password.

Try PSLoggedOn, part of the Sysinternals suite:

You can run it against a particular username and it will search the network neighborhood and tell you which computers the user is logged on to.

Also, check to see if the user has saved any cached credentials with the old password on any computers he/she has logged onto.
