XP Professional
Windows 2003 Server
This is a very strange problem.  The user logs into the domain on his PC and he cannot access two directories on the file server.  Then the user logs into the domain on another PC then user can access the two directories.  It’s only when he is logged in on his PC that the user cannot access the two directories.  I have attempted to delete his profile and then recreated it, but he still cannot access the two directories.  I set myself up with the same permissions as the user and I logged on his PC and I was able to access the two directories.  I can’t figure this out.  If you could help it would be greatly appreciated.
If you run the mouse over the directory the pop up states – the folder is empty.  I know that the folder is not empty because I can access the folder.  
Error message – directory is not accessible.  Access is denied.

Crazy, but I removed the PC from the domain, renamed it.  Added the PC to a workgroup and then added it back to the domain and that fixed it.  Any comments on why?

Thanks, great work.

I'll assume that it had corrupted its Security Keys. It happens from time to time.
