Issue accessing the server with a Domain user

Hi Everyone,

We have a windows  2003 server  and two  computer connected to the server.
Both computers are part of the domain, and are using the same user account to log into these two computers.

We have  shared folders on the server, that can be access from these two computers, but  sometimes, one of the computers is not able to access this files any more until we log off or restart the computer.

For example, if I try to access a folder name Samplefolder located on
\\\Folder\Sample Folder   (server’s IP)
A window will pop up asking us to enter the user name and password, but if we restart the computer, then we regain access to the folders on the server.
(if we enter the same user name and password we also get access, but we don't want to do this every time, because its also affecting one of our programs that also need access to the server)

We know is not the Sharing or Security permissions, because this is only happening on one of the two computers that are using the same user account.

How could we solve this issue, this happens at least once a week.

Any telling events in the security log on the server and affected workstation?
