    Question for you all...how many logon attempts can you make in Win XP
    before you're locked out? Say the system is stand-alone, no domains.
    My experiments say there is no limit at all, I can keep trying until I
    get sick of trying. But a month or so ago I saw something that claimed
    the answer was between two and six.

    BTW, Windows XP Help is useful on this query, but I'm just wondering
    if Help might be wrong.

    I am not aware of any limit on login attemps for XP when it is a
    standalone computer.

    The thing I saw has something to do with the title of this
    newsgroup. ;-)

    Thanks!
