I have setup Roaming Profiles - all was working fine until this morning when I tried to lon on - it would not let me on as it said that it could not authenticate me and that due to a compromise in security it could not log on using my roaming profile - I cannot undertand why!

This is really urgent.

there are no errors in either logs - I have also taken my PC off the domain and added as workgroup and then changed back to domain.

Powerhousecomputing,

> Event ID:     1053

It seems that your computer or the server (if other people are also experiencing the problem) are having a hard time with the RPC service.

Sysprep the computer to get a new SID and delete the user in question and re-create.

This should solve your problem.
