Local Groups on a Windows 7 based client

I have a set of Windows 7 client PC's on a Windows 200 based domain. On all the Windows 7 clients, any domain member that is added to a local group is displayed as a SID. Any ideas why or how?

If its resolving into SID,there is account which you are adding or profile corruption.

This is due to corruption of account or profile,its not able to resolve sid into names.

Just to clarify, Windows 7 PC's all show SID names. Windows XP do not. XP PC's are showing the correct name. It looks like it's a specific Windows 7 issue.

Another update on this. We apply domain users to local groups via the Restricted Groups setting in a group policy. On applying this GPO, we get the error "Security policies were propagated with warning. 0x6fc : The trust relationship between the primary domain and the trusted domain failed.". I have no problems adding Windows 7 PC's to our Windows 200 domain, plus I can browse network accounts and add them manually (still showing SID name). Any ideas anyone!!!!

Solved it myself, and if I could give the points to Google I would. The problem was solved instantly once this was installed.
