The 5 WS LAN is set up that the users can not change their own passwords.  Instead, I change their passwords at the server either on request by user, or intermittently on a somewhat random basis.  This has worked fine.  But on the last PW change for one user, their PW does not change on one workstation.  They have access to all five workstations and the PW changed on all other four.  But when they log onto one, they have to use their old PW.  I've disconnected and reconnected the WS and same.  All WS run XPpro and all upgraded to SP3.  Other than the PW issue the one WS in question seems to function normall.

Remove the computer from the domain, and then re-add it.

Before you being, you will need the following:
- that workstations local administrator account
- your Domain (Not your web address, but the Windows domain)
- an account on the domain with Domain Admins privileges

1) Right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
2) Go to the "Computer name" tab and click "Change."
3) In the lower half of the window, click on the "Workgroup" radio button, and enter a workgroup name (at this point, it doesn't matter what the name is) and click OK. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Let the computer reboot
4) After reboot, login with the workstations local administrator account.
5) Once again, right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
6) Go to the "Computer name" tab and click "Change."
7) In the lower half of the window, click on the "Domain" radio button, and enter your Windows domain.
8) To join the domain, you will be prompted for for an account with Domain Admin privileges. Enter that account and password.
9) You should get a message saying something similar to "Welcome to the domain."
10) Reboot the workstation once again, and log in with the account in question.
