Active Directory /SQL authentication issue

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a single user who connects to SQL (SQL management tool)and gets access denied on a particular server.  
Another user in the same groups as user 1 is fine.

User 1 can access if I put into the local admin on the server
User 2 can access just fine not in local admini

User 1 has multiple AD accounts, when he started as a contractor then moved to perm, etc.
I am tempted to kill all his accounts then start with a fresh one but before I did that I thought I would try to solve it.
Any help?
