You will have to check their passwords on every single box they access as
probably their account is not locked out locally but on the machine they are
trying to access. This is one the biggest problems with a workgroup as
passwords are not synchronized so a change on one machine means you have to
go to every machine that has a local account with the same name and change
the password there too.
