Hi, when I try to login, with both my regualar id and my personal domain admin id, i get an error saying something like ...the time on this machine is different from the time on the network (which its not). The only way I can get into the computer is by logging in with admin account of the local machine.

Any clues?

log in as local admin to the machine:

Open Date and Time in Control Panel.
Click the Internet Time tab.
The Internet Time tab is not available if your computer is a member of a domain.

Select the Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server check box.
In the Server list, click the arrow, and then click the time server you want to use.

I will login as a local admin and then

run from the command prompt net time /setsntp:domain controller

you should do this at your domain controller before  

net stop w32time
w32time -update
net start w32time

Check the DATE as well as the TIME, 9 times out of 10, the DATE will be wrong, which will not allow you to login to windows.

This date change normally happens when users "Check" dates by doubling clicking the clock in the system tray, then choose a new date, then click OK instead of Cancel.
