I think you might be closest in this case. The only other workstation the user was logged in during the improper shutdown was via RDP on the user's personal workstation. My first steps however, were to change the user id to prevent the log out, log in and out of RDP, change username back. problem did not come back again. but i would not have thought improper disconnection of RDP can cause password conflicts, it's strange but i cannot explain otherwise.

I checked the event viewer (not sure if that is where I should check) and I got the suspect. Please see edited question. Thanks.

we are not using Exchange so that possibility is completely ruled out. I just don't see any other device logging into the account. Please see update on question. Thanks.

comment Does Active Directory Forest require another physical server?
thanks for your help! so now I know domains are really considered as 2 separate forests. Just curious, what would the common practice be to situation the DC for company.com? Primary and Seconadry DC, one at each country?

comment How can i make my custom “name@example.com” e-mail adress if i'm the owner of “example.com”
@Elad Actually, Google is the host if you use Google Apps. Also by this time, it would be 10 free accounts only =(

comment Connecting via higher bandwidth WAN to Untangle VPN
Actually, I know about the dedicated connection etc which on my NETGEAR it's called protocol binding. That setting would more obviously boost my connection directly. So, I actually meant to ask the less obvious case, whereby the client chooses which line to connect in the first place, given the existing set-up.

comment Windows Server - How to efficiently set user security permissions?
@Evan Anderson I should have typed domain\Administrators instead. Thanks for the reminder though =) the folders are "home folders" but overtime various admins decided to add different users to different folders... bad.

comment How to share large email data store between multiple clients?
I know it's not meant to be used like this, but by sharing the same IMAP account, every user can see whether the mail has been attended to and then can act accordingly. This is useful for handling sales@mycompany.com. I can see that the orthodox way is to pipe emails to a CRM program and let a DB handle it.. but in the meantime, is there a way to share the emails?

comment What happens in case of utility power failure?
Thanks everyone for the responses. Yea, I think you guys are right that the UPS is good only as far as allowing for graceful shutdown and prevent data corruption. I picked Michael's answer because he directly provide the solution to address my concern of business disruption. Thanks all again =)

@John. I tried to, and on many other occassions as well. But most text require many other advanced concepts and it's hard to following along given my limited understanding.
