Not Authenticated

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".

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
