    Moved your post to the right forum....

    To me it could either be a GPO or GPOs have been set or the most extreme this could be virus activity

    1. Run GPresult and see what combination of local and domain polices are running...modify GPO's as neccessary.

    2. Run AV and intrusion detection software.

    3. Check and see if the HIsec security template is running on the server.

    4. Un-install and re-install Service Pack 2 for Server 2003...especially if you installed IE7

    More info is needed. What kind of server is this? member server, stand alone or DC?
    My first impression is something with the system account. Most services load under system. Or they could have been set to load under a special created account an now the password is not correct.
