I just did a Windows XP repair on a machine that is connected to the Domain...actually I had to do this repair about 4 times each time for driver related issues and troubleshooting.

After I get it back up and running, Internet Explorer asks me /user for domaincredentials to log in.

Is there a way around it? Does it have something to do with SIDs?

Have you tried removing/readding the machine to the domain?

no not yet.

will that cause issues with user profiles. I really do not want loss of settings that are associated with the user profile
Have you tried either - remove from the domain, renaming the computer, then re-adding it - or resetting the Secure Channel (i.e. nltest or netdom):
