I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try resetting the station's security to defaults:

If this happens when the user logs in to other devices - then I suggest this is a profile issue.
If so - back the profile up using USMT (, - then delete the account, re-create it in AD - and restore the data using USMT.

I had a feeling it could be related with the profile, will delete and re-create it and see if that works.
