I keep getting the error "The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security."  Then I couldn't access our network drive.  I have set our DNS to our specific DNS address.  Any thoughts??

Try to run the Network ID wizard in the Computer name tab of the System Properties to reset the domain membership of the computer that is having the problem.

When I do that it says that it could not find me on the domain which I know I'm on there.

Could not find YOU on the domain or could not find the Domain? What is the exact verbage of the error? Usually that is a pretty straight forward process unless there is a communication problem between the PC and the Domain Controller.

This sounds like the username / password / domain combination that you are entering in the wizard are not correct. Your user account should have domain admin permissions to be able to add computers.

What i found was that my client's PC DNS was set to OpenDNS (208.67.220.220 and 222.222) and not their W2k3 DC/DNS server... Changed it back to main server's DNS, flushed and all was well.  The indicator problem was that they could not access mapped drives on the server.
