SQL Server Insufficient Permission

Login failed for user 'WINDOWUSER'. Reason: Failed to open the explicitly specified database. [CLIENT: 10.0.0.00].

I've dropped and recreated the account and I've updated the orphaned records; however I'm still getting the above error message.  Any thoughts/help is greatly appreciated.

The default database for the login does not exists anymore. Just change it.

Can you double check you're connecting to the database you want. Connection string?

When I give the account "sysadmin" permissions, everything works fine.  Thoughts?

thats because sysadmin has less limits
- check which database is mentioned in connect string (or default database)
- trace (profiler) conections and sql-actions by that user when he can work (as sysadmin) so you can see what databases it tries to connect
