User not accessing the Server  

I have a user that is trying to access a server in my domain but I get an error message stating that they have no access. This only happens from their PC I can log the same user in from any other PC and have no problem. So far I have tried these things
Change the name of the workstation
Rebooted the server
Gave the WS access to the server

But no luck.

    So its only under this one profile on one machine that the user is having issues?  Very odd that it works everywhere else, that proves your share and ntfs permissions are ok.
    What about creating a new profile for him on his workstation, have you tried that?

    When you say create a new profile do you mean a new profile in AD or create a new local profile on the PC

    I would suggest trying to remove and re-add the computer back to the domain.  Otherwise delete and re-create the profile locally on the workstation like mkline71 suggested.

    oK I took the workstation and put into workgroup, change the computer name and restated the WS then I loged on local as administrator. After loging in as administrator I addded the WS back in to the domain with a different computer name and then restarted. Once the computer was backup I loged in as the user I eas having problems with and no luck

    What I was talking about was going in and renaming his current profile to something else
    userOld (for example)
    Then when he logs on a new profile will be created for him.  If that works you will have to copy the data from the old profile to the new.
