A computer running everything fine until it add to a new domain. All programs works fine. After join the new Domain(SBS2008) I'm getting programs errors in WordPerfect, Acrobat 9.4 and few others with the same issues 0xfffffff8 memory bla bla, see image.
 Error on WP X4
I have try searching for that error and have done a lot of recommended fix its but none works. The error happens in computers with local and server share default printers and different s brands like Xerox copiers and HP printers so that's not the problem.  Some computers works fine for 2 days and after that the error shows up. I have the computer remove from the domain and check back and the application works fine, weird. the only work around that I have done is to Install a old version of the program like Corel 2000 and works when connected to the Domain.

I need help big time with this situation my boss is getting on me.

If you log into the workstation as a domain administrator, can you replicate the issue?

SBS requires that you join all client computers and servers using the http://connect method.  It runs scripts and prepares the workstation correctly to work on these types of domains.

This site may provide enough answers for you and how and why it's done.

It's important to note that you *should* temporarily disable your AntiVirus software and any third-party firewalls you may have installed in order to get this to work properly.

Let us know.

Finally I have to reformat each computer in order to have all the applications working fine. Don't really know what was the problem but it seems to take care of this issue, the bad thing is that there 20 computers total.
