I have a computer that keeps getting the following error message "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed". To fix this error I have to take the computer off of domain and rejoin the computer back to the domain. I have to do this every few days. What can be causing this problem and how can I fix it?

When you took it out of the domain, did you delete the computer in the Computer OU?
If not you might try that again, join it to WORKGROUP, login as local administrator.  Remove it from Ad on your computer and the rejoin it to your domain.
Just a thought,

Is it possible there's another machine on the network with the same name?  Have you tried joining it to the domain with a different name?  Are the time and timezone set properly on the client computer?  How about on the domain controller(s)?

Do you see any event in the eventlogs on a domain controller concerning this computer? Or on the computer itself? Try renaming the computername (if you did not tried it before :-))

One other question, is this a Small Business Server domain?
