We had a power outage this morning.  the servers were fine.  But the workstations all needed to be cycled, if they were still on.  I have a manager that has rights to the network, and before I came in, she rebooted the servers and logged them all back on.   The network for some users is acting slow and their computers are sluggish.   Ihave one computer, go figure - its my bosses - that won't register with the network.  It logs in, but I can't access any shares in the domain.  She can open and see her email (outlook 2000, with Exchange 2000)  Her machine is an XP box with SP3. the servers are 2k.

Any ideas on what the problem could be?  I have been pounding my head into the desk all day on this one.  Hers is the only one with this problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Any information in her event logs that might indicate an error like  "Unable to query the list of GPOs" or "failed to resolve a domain controller for the domain"?

Have you tried removing the machine from the domain and joining it again?

Do you have more than one domain controller? If so they might not be replicating.

I do have more than one domain controller, and yes I have taken the computer out of the domain, and added it back in.  This is the only user of about 65 that has this issue.  It has to be computer related and not user related because she can log in to the domain just fine from another computer in the office next to hers.

"Any information in her event logs that might indicate an error like  "Unable to query the list of GPOs" or "failed to resolve a domain controller for the domain"?" The answer for this is no.  I have scoured the logs and cannot find anything preventing her network access.

I am baffled.

What Antivirus/Firewall software are you using (or maybe previously been using and uninstalled)

I reset the computer account within active directory, and it fixed the issue.

Thanks for all of your help, and suggestions.
