Commonly this means the system account is no longer present in AD.

If the machine was loaded with a sysprep'd image the local Administrator account is disable during deployment.  If there is no other local administrator level account to use you could use a bootable offline password tool like Microsoft Dart to enable it.

I spotted this on one of my domain PC's the other day. I removed it from the domain and rejoined it, and the trust was recreated and the error went away.

To re-enable the local administrator, boot the computer into safe mode. You will then be able to login as the local administrator. It is disabled by Microsoft for security purposes. Once in, open up Manage, and create a new local administrator account, seperate from the built-in account. Boot the computer normally, login as the new admin, remove the computer from the domain, re-add the computer to the domain, and the issue will be fixed.

Best of luck,

that worked out perfect. Does anyone know what causes this problem? When i joined the laptop to the domain i was on our wireless i am starting to think that i should be hard wired when joining a PC to a domain instead of the wireless. thanks
