Security Issue On Newly Deployed Windows XP Machine Connected To Windows Server 2003

We begun experiencing a few issues accessing a mapped network drive late in the day after we rebuild a computer that had an OS crash with XP.

We just had to restart the PC in order to "re-establish" the connection because we received the following error:
 
"F"\ is not accessible.
The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you."
And the only option was to click "OK".
 
Why would we have an authentication issue? We have not previously encountered this error, at least not in recent memory. To the best of our knowledge we are are not doing anything differently that would cause a connectivity issue.

Searching the error gives many possible solutions.  Rather than sending them to you one or more at a time, have you done a search and eliminated the solutions offered?

Make sure your time is correct on the workstation.  Often if the time is out of sync this can cause authentication to fail, specially with certificate stores.

What credentials was the PC using to map the drive, prior to being rebuilt?  Is it using those same credentials now?  Was the Windows firewall disabled prior to the PC being rebuilt?  If so, make sure it is disabled now too.

Is this pc part of a domain? Maybe try deleting the item out of active directory and rejoining the domain.
