I'm running windows 2008, and just created a new user that belongs to Users group, and I checked the Allow logon locally gpo, Users was there

While the password is correct, I couldn't just logon, it kept telling me that user or password is incorrect, but administrator works.

enter image description here

As in the picture, the account is Active.

Anyone got a hint on this?

Have you tried to refresh policy Command Prompt > gpupdate /force and try again? Seems like changes have not been applied.

I dont think so...that's the default setting so no update needed, am I wrong? – warl0ck Nov 19 '12 at 13:53
The policy will be updated automatically according to refresh policy interval. If you want changes to group policy to be applied immediately, then gpupdate should be used. But, actually, if policy was not updated, it would have told that no local logon allowed.. – Volodymyr M. Nov 19 '12 at 14:11
