I have been authenticating to a windows 2000 server for months.
We moved offices.
Now everyone in the office can authenticate to the server except one user.
It is a workgroup and i am using x\user for the username and the correct password.
I cannot authenticate. It was working fine and nothing has changed.
I tried to change the password on the server for that user to a new password and that did not work. THe client computer is windows 7. ANy ideas?

Can you check for time skew?
Has this user tried several systems or only this windows 7 platform?
Can you remove the users ad account and recreate it?

It was the system time and date on the server. The windows 7 computer could not authenticate even though the xp computer could. Security????
