I have  a Windows NT 4.0 workstation that I cannot upgrade due to an application issue.  We recently upgraded our Domain Controllers from Server 2003 to 2008.  About 3 weeks after the upgrade of the Domain Controllers we had to reboot the NT Workstation and get the followig message "The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on that account is incorrect.".  I have removed and been able to rejoin the domain.  However each time I keep getting the same error.  I have tried resetting the computer account, and recreatling the DNS Entry, no luck.  Any suggestions?

Windows NT 4.0 domain join is not supported with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

It is not Server 2008 R2, just 2008, 32 bit edition.  I also am able to remove the workstation from the domain, and rejoin it to the domain. I get the welcome message, just not able to login at that point.  Is there no way around that?

Do you see any error messages in the security log on the domain controller(s) when you try to log in from this NT machine? How about on the machine itself? I'm wondering if there's some kind of incompatibility having to do with Kerberos or other types of digital encryption or signing that you might be able to control using group policy settings.

Try looking at/setting the following policies:

Domain member: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data (always): Disabled
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level:    Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated
