Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 available for download March 19 at 9am Pacific Time.

Microsoft release availability of Internet Explorer 8.0 at the company's MIX09 conference and available for download at 9am Pacific Time March 19.

I'm so excited of this release so I went to read the features of IE 8. Well some of the text still pointing to Internet Explorer 7.0 hmmm.. Anyway, let's explore the features that will benefit us as a users.
  • Tabbed browsing. I saw this already in IE 7.0 released. I haven't explore much about Quick Tabs and Tab Groups. I wanted to see in IE 8.0 to drag and drop to another open browser just like the Google Chrome. I have nothing to share for Instant Search Box, RSS Feeds, Favorites, etc. I think this should be part of standard internet explorer.
  • Dynamic Security Protection. ActiveX opt-in is a good addition to prompt users options to install it. I suggest to disable it, you can go back and activate this feature from the Add-on Manager. The Phishing Filter is definitely a good feature to protect you against potential or known fraudulent websites.

Hmm reading these features seems the same from the last released of Internet Explorer 7.0. I think they haven't updated the website yet for IE 8.0. I will need to go back to this article again for updates. Though the download for Internet Explorer 8.0 is ready for you. Check it out.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
