Is there a way to unlock a pasword?
Password locks do not "free themselves" unless you write custom logic to do that.
Othewrwise, you need to unlock them manually.
There are two ways to do that:
1) Create a page (accessible only to administrators, of course) that lets you unlock users using the Membership API:
MembershipUser user = Membership.GetUser(lockedUserName);
2) Go directly into the database and change the IsLocked field from True to False.
