50 percent of my user on my domain that keeps on getting her NT account locked out. This happens at anytime even if they are working. I have checked the event viewer on the PDC and found that it is recorded in the Security Logon type 3.

Does anyone have any suggestions why other workstations would be locking their account out if that is the problem or is there another reason.

Have you checked your account lockout policy on the PDC?

It would be under:
User Manager for Domains
Policies
Accounts

//Here's a tool you can use to troubleshoot account lockouts. NT is supported.

Dude you seriously need to consider an upgrade. Servers have long since advanced beyond NT and it isn't even supported anymore.
