    Vista is logging onto a SBS 2k3 domain. When it comes time to change
    the password the password is changed however Vista hangs at either the
    'changing password' screen, or the 'welcome' screen forever, i have
    waited 30 minutes with no results. I know the password has changed
    cause I can logon elsewhere. If I power off and reboot I will not be
    able to logon unless I use a different user like Administrator. The
    only solution I have found is unplug the nic, power up, logon (with
    new password (and it works)), then plug in the nic and reboot.

    I don't see any glaring errors in any eventlog.

    This happens every 90 days, to every vista user.

    This happens on 3 different vista workstations.
