I have seen different varieties of this same problem posted on E-E, but none that would pertain to my situation.  I have a very basic network with one server operating Server 2000 and five client computers with XP Pro.  I have one local domain with DHCP configured.   Just recently I have been getting bombarded with MRxSmb 3044 errors with an error code of 80090322 pointing to SEC_E_WRONG_PRINCIPAL.  My research shows that "this code indicates that the client tried to connect to the server with a computer name that is different from the actual computer name of the server."

Through a process of elimination I have isolated one client machine that is instigating the error messages.   This computer is 6 months old and its configuration has not changed since it was installed.  

Is the problem with the server, or with the client?    

Any suggestions would be helpful

Take a look in your DNS and make sure that there are no duplicate names and that no machines have registered the same IP address.

Wonderful!   I checked the DNS and found that indeed two machines were assigned the same IP.  I did a release/renew on one of the machines and got rid of the MRxSmb
