I currently have a couple of colleagues that are experiencing a problem with Windows 7
(i cant replicate the same problem on vista or windows XP)

So i was thinking if anyone had or have the same problem, and know a permanent fix for it instead of my annoying work around.
(Iw googled it but cant find any solution for it)

Problem :
Switching from the office domain network to another network (mostly dirty line once), without logging out and then turning on there VPN to connect back to the office network, locks there AD account out.
They do get connected with the VPN but once accessing resources the AD account locks.

Temp Solution :
Always logout when switching between different networks.

Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.
