Event ID 5722: Netlogon error for client on a Windows network

Our Windows 2003 Enterprise server that is our PDC is reporting an error for a client machine saying
 "Event ID 5722 NETLOGON The session setup from the computer %1 failed to authenticate. The name of the account referenced in the security database is %2.  The following error occured: 3%. The session setup from the computer sparesystem failed to authenticate.  Access is denied.

The end user is able to use the computer and access the network but this error keeps being reported in the System event logs on the server.  We have changed the client computer name but still having the same error.  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

First, log on locally to the workstation, with the local admin account. Then, remove the workstation from the domain by joining it to a workgroup. The name of the workgroup doesn't matter, so long as
it removes itself from the domain. You should get a window saying "Welcome to the xxxx workgroup!". You'll have to reboot the workstation for the changes to take effect.

Go to ADUC delete the compter and also old computername if it exist.Check the DNS console and delete the record of workstation and also delete the old record from DNS.Wait for 15 mins to ensure replication to all GC's, if you are in a large environment.

Now, go back to the workstation, logging on as local administrator.Join the machine back to the domain, utilizing an account that has sufficient privileges.

Refer below links if above does not work.
