Whaddya apply for trademarks for your domain name?

I am wondering if I can apply for Trademarks for my "KING.NET" domain name. I am using KING.NET obviously as my main blog, to transact business in various ways from IT Consulting, Domain Name Management, Content Management System (CMS) management, Email Services, provide Howto Guide and other IT-related online services.

After reading this article I need to take time out and discuss it with local lawyers to help me file my trademark application for "KING.NET".
"Will the Domain Name Owner or Trademark Owner Win a Dispute?
Domain name owners frequently open their mail to find a letter from a law firm representing a trademark owner. These letters - called “cease and desist letters” by lawyers - demand that the domain name owner stop using the domain name, transfer the domain name to the trademark owner, and provide information about the dates of use and money made from the use of the domain name."

    - Wait for examiner
    - Wait for approval (or denied).

    That's for now.

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.
