I have a problem with 1 of the computer in the network.
This user recieved in the previous logon a message to change his password because it has expired , but he didn't change it. Then, when he tried to logon into the computer the later he recieved a msg that "The system couldn't log you on, either the domain name or user name is incorrect.

I have reseted the user password but this didn't solve the problem.
Then, i loged in as an administrator and  i tried to add another user in the network to this computer but i recieved an error"The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."

Any Suggestion,

Use the netdom reset command from any computer to reset the trust relationship between the faulty machine and the domain controller.  The netdom reset command is available from a command prompt after you install the support tools from the support folder on any Windows 2000 XP 2003 CD-ROM.

FYI - I recommend you install the support tools on your machine and use them for managing any machine on the network.  You will then be able to join machines remotely and much more.

Once you have installed the support tools on a machine, the netdom command becomes available at the command prompt.  Here is how mine looks:

C:\Documents and Settings\user>netdom /?
The syntax of this command is:

NETDOM HELP command
      -or-
NETDOM command /help

   Commands available are:

   NETDOM ADD              NETDOM RESETPWD         NETDOM RESET
   NETDOM COMPUTERNAME     NETDOM QUERY            NETDOM TRUST
   NETDOM HELP             NETDOM REMOVE           NETDOM VERIFY
   NETDOM JOIN             NETDOM MOVENT4BDC
   NETDOM MOVE             NETDOM RENAMECOMPUTER

   NETDOM HELP SYNTAX explains how to read NET HELP syntax lines.
   NETDOM HELP command | MORE displays Help one screen at a time.

   Note that verbose output can be specified by including /VERBOSE with
   any of the above netdom commands.


The command completed successfully.


C:\Documents and Settings\user>netdom reset /?
The syntax of this command is:

NETDOM RESET machine /Domain:domain [/Server:server]
             [UserO:user] [/PasswordO:[password | *]]

NETDOM RESET Resets the secure connection between a workstation and a domain
controller

machine is the name of the computer to be have the secure connection reset

/Domain         Specifies the domain with which to establish the secure
                connection

/Server         Name of a specific domain controller that should be used to
                establish the secure connection.

/UserO          User account used to make the connection with the machine to
                be reset

/PasswordO      Password of the user account specified By /UserO.  A * means
                to prompt for the password

So, to reset a trust:
netdom reset 192.168.1.19 /domain:car /usero:john /passwordo:123
