Environment: SBS 2003 (Domain)  Windows XP Computer w/SP3.

I have a user that, from her machine only, is unable to access network/domain resources. Others can login fine from her computer. She can log in fine from other machines as well. I tried a system restore. I have deleted her domain (user) profile from the computer and then added it back. I have removed the computer from the domain and added it back. Im at a loss as to what to try next. Ive also checked the registry for problems with:    RESTRICTANONYMOUS and verified that it was set to zero, and that RESTRICTANONYMOUSSAM is set to one.

Could you try renaming the client computer's hostname and forcing the user to change his/her password?

Alternatively, you can run netdom /verify or /reset to try and check secure channel

That worked-Thanks. Any idea as to what caused that to happen?
