Hello,

We have a weird problem.
On a SBS 2003 network with about 10 client pc's (Windows XP's, Vista's, & Windows 7 clients). there is one client pc that lost its connection to the SBS server, all other clients work fine.

Everything worked fine for a few months but this morning the client couldn't access any shares.

- I can ping the server hostname and IP adres
- I can connect to http://server/Connectcomputer 
- I added the server IP manually in the dns settings
- I tried a winsockfix
- I tried a /flushdns

ipconfig /all

The only thing that works is a system restore, but this is the second time I had to do this.
