I have a domain set up and one of the computers denies access from the other ones.   I can see it in Network Places, but when I try to connect to it, I get the attached error message.   The computer in question is running Windows 7 Professional.   It was previously connected to the domain,but it now shows as "unauthenticated" in the system tray.   I am able to connect from it to the other computers on the domain.Error-Message.docx

check if you are running some firewall or internet security on that machine (even windows build-it)
check that machine in AD if it appears correctly in Computers or appropriate OU (you can also try reset computer account in AD if you are not sure)

AD = Active Directory
OU = Organizational Unit

I guess so, but networking is a complete mystery to me, so I need step-by-step instructions about what to do.   Can I try to remove the computer from the domain then reconnect it?

I just removed it from the domain and connected it to "WORKGROUP".   I then changed it back to the domain and it worked fine.   Lucky guess!

I checked the AD on the server and added it as it was not present, so I was then able to have the workstation rejoin the domain.
