Erroneus 1326 error with runas command



Hi all,
I have a problem with a couple of the PCs I look after
(out of about 100 on site). They're all WinXP SP1 and on
a DNS/DHCP network but not a domain.

When I try and use the runas command with the correct
username and password I get
RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - cmd
1326: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password

I have tried this a large number of times and it's always
on the same machines so I know it's not finger trouble. I
can log on using the username and password I'm using with
runas so I know they're correct. I can find articles on
Win2000 problems with RUNAS but not XP.

Is anyone aware of any bugs in runas on this platform, or
have any areas I can check to see if I'm doing something
wrong? I've checked the secondary logon service is
running (it is) and I've tried restarting it to no avail.
