I have an XP machine on our network that has been fine forever. Recently the woman who was using the machine quit, so now we have someone else logging in on a new profile.

The user can authenticates and connects just fine. I can see the domain in the network places. I can get out to other shared folders and access them via domain permissions but I am running into an issue sharing a folder on the machine itself.

When I go to add the user permissions, I cannot select a user from the domain, when I browse locations I only see the local computer name and I do not see the domain name.

Any idea what the problem might be?

Yes rejoing the PC to domain would fix the issue.
Also make sure that correct DNS setting is entered on the Client PC.If possible do the deep scan of the PC in safe mode and make sure that latest Windows Service pack and hotfix are installed on the client machine and latest virus defination is also installed before you proceed with rejoing the PC to doamin.
