Question

Locked

User locks PC, after 30 min it says administrator is logged in.

Hi all!

Hope you can help me with this issue...
I've got a XP machine in the AD that several users use daily, the problem is just that if a user logs in, works and the locks it when going to lunch for example, when she/he gets back it says Administrator is logged on and
that's the only one that can logg off...
The solution has been power off for a while but that's no good..
I've checked with several antivirus sw
Hijackthis
Gmer
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Nothing about a virus...

I've removed everything that has to do with autolocking screensavers and stuff like that..
Still happens...

Any idea?? I'm fresh out of them...


TIA!

Thanks for your tips...
I actually had read the fix with logon.scr and checked the settings before but it didn't help, until I looked again... Someone had changed the value to logon,scr instead of logon.scr... *Sigh*

Again, thanks for really fast and helpful replies!!
