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.

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.

Have a look: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=839880

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

This should solve your problem.
