I have Windows 7 on my laptop and have always been able to connect remotely to it...until now.  Recently it has been hanging up every time I try to print anything, even after a reboot.  When I try to connect remotely to it, it says it can't connect; yesterday it said my machine was not authenticated.  What happened, and how do I fix this?

Have you tried a system restore to a time when it was working? Maybe some conflicting software has been installed? Have you added any new firewall software to your laptop? Has there been any changes to your router/firewall in your network that may affect this?

I did a system restore...didn't fix the problem.  No new firewall software.  No changes to the router/firewall.  No new software.

When I looked at the computers in AD I didn't see the specific name of my computer; I did see one that was similar so I deleted it.  When I try to add my computer it tells me it already exists, but if I try and "find" my computer's name, it finds nothing.  It says it's a "pre-windows 2000 name".

So your trying to connect remotely behind your network? If you have tried connect to it directly to a home modem?? So you can isolate if it works without the network policys

I changed the name of my computer, added it to the domain and everything is fine now.  I was trying to connect remotely within our network.  In AD why can't I see/find my computers old name; it's telling me it exists.
