    I have noticed on my machine that when i put in a wrong password for logging in the computer shuts me out straight away.......so i checked the Local Security Policy and it is set at 3 invalid logon attemps, no big deal but is annoying!!! maybe i shouldnt forget my password to start with :blink

    Anyway, can someone give me an idea of why this is happening?

    Weird, have you changed any of the local group policy settings?

    Is the PC on a domain? Also does the account lockout and then you have to unlock it through computer management?
