Trust relationship

I have a win2003 server and a Winxp pro workstation. While on the workstation if I try to add a user that is a member of my domain I get a trust relationship error between the workstation and the domain. I went to the server and was going to add the computer to the Active directory list but it was already there. I am not sure why this workstation won't let me add the user. I have not had this problem on any other workstation. Have any of you seen this before?

Can you describe the steps you try to take? What you say is a bit confusing

Right click the computer account in ADUC and Reset Account.   This will reset the computer account in AD which should build the trust relationship again.  This is a trust that every domain computer account has with it's domain.
