Bogus Domain Name Appraisal, just another spam?

If you're a entrepreneur or small business that own and manage a number of domain names. Once in a while you will receive a bogus offer enticing you to use their appraisal service for them to buy your domain name. DON'T USE THEIR SERVICE, just add the email to your black listed spam database.

--- Sample e-mail from domain.trd@gmail.com ---
Dear Sir,

we have an interest to purchase your domain KING.NET (as example I removed the actual domain name) and usually offer between 50% and 65% of the appraised value.
We can accept valuations from leading companies such as

http://www.++++.com/
http://++++++++.com/
http://++++++++.com/

If you already have an appraisal please forward it to us.

Please let us know whether you are interested. Upon review of your valuation and in case of an agreement we send payments via PayPal for amounts less than $2,000 and via Escrow.com for amounts above $2,000, as well as further instructions on how to complete the transfer of the domain name.

Thank you,

Domain Trade LLC

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.
