    Since when did this start ?
    Did you enforce an account policy ?

      it has been like this for almost a month.

      if I get you correctly, there is user policy on my domain, its not specific to a single account.

      and this is happening on only my account, how do I check settings specifically to me and the policy applied?

      Thanking you.

        You haven't changed your password recently and left yourself logged into a citrix server or RDP'd on to a server anywhere?

        seen this many a times before

          Yes there is a possibilities, this has happened when I was doing trial login on citrix. its also possible that I have logged on RDP on server I did not logout.

          the question is how will I know where or which server I did not logout?

          why it behaves like that, i.e. the password is getting locked?

          how can I resolve the problem?


          Thanking you.

            It sounds like you have a password set on the client for the screensaver. Right click the desktop/properties - screensaver tab at the top. check to see if a blank screen saver is set and password.

              U can use RSoP (Resultant Set of Policy) thru MMC to find out the effective policy applied to computer and user.
