Hi

I am working on a Win2k3 Server with the latest updates. When I leave the
computer for a while the screen saver comes up and when I want to unlock it,
it says the password is incorrect. I logged in under the administrator
account.

This is impossible. I can unlock (and unfortunately logoff the administrator
account) using another user with administrator permissions and then log in
again with the administrator user. So I know that I know the correct
password.

Furthermore, this problem happens every single time.  There don't appear to
be any strange events in the event logs.

The server is newly installed and doesn't have much in it. It's pretty much
on default settings but server roles were added.

Any idea what is causing this and how to fix it?

Thx
