Running Windows SBS 2011 in small office environment with 15 workstations. One of the workstations on the network doesn't load the correct user desktop for anyone that should sign in on it. It loads a default desktop

Have checked the SBS console and nothing about this particular workstation seems any diffrent than the rest. What else should I check?

Thanks.

is it correctly in domain, that PC? Check the IP, try to ping DC.
Try to reset computer account in AD (right click on the object and Reset account)
if nothing help you could try to remove PC from the domain and put it back

then log into PC as local administrator, put it down from domain (fulfil workgroup name), reboot the PC, login again and put it back to domain.

I deleted the machine in AD, added it again. Unjoined and rejoined domain.

Still behaving the same way.
