    We recently changed all the office passwords but one of them will not work on the persons local machine. The password works on all the other office pc's but not hers. However her old password still allows her access. I tried changing the local user info and even tried deleting her profile on the local machine. It still deosn't work. We went into the small business admin console and reset her password several times. Like I said the network will allow her to log in at other stations using her new password but her station forces her to use the old password. We thought it was an issue with the local machine but since we removed her user and deleted her profile it still won't work. We added her back in as a new user with the new info and still no dice. Any ideas. We are running win server2000 with all the patches

    You are running a domain I take it. Try removing the machine from the domain and adding it again.

    Go to this registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\micdrosoft\winnt\currentversion\winlogon

    Edit the value:

    cachedlogonscount

    set the value to 0 and restart the computer.

    If this computer is used outside the domain you may have to change the 0 back to 10 after your password issue is resolved.
