Windows 7: Account lockout problem

Account lockout problem

Hello all,

Windows 7 has made my Account Lockout Duration set to 99360 minutes (69 days).

What's really bad is I can't change this. It's disabled even though I'm an admin.

I've search for days trying to figure out how I can change this and was hoping someone here could help me.

TIA,

RaynMan

Have you tried to change Account Lockout Threshold to 0, it should then reset the duration?

Thank you for your reply, Kari.

I can't change anything on this screen. I can't change duration, threshold, or even reset time. Everything is disabled.

Thanks again.

Are we talking about the same window / screen? The Local Group Policy Editor? Or do you mean you are completely locked out?

The editor. Just like the images you are showing. If I click on anything just like what you have on the first image, anything that shows up just like on the second image is disabled.

I am an admin. I also have another user account which is also admin and thank goodness for that because I was able to login as the other user and unlock my main user. The other user account also has these disabled.

Thanks
