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)

Not sure what "AD" or "OU" mean.   Please explain.   Thanks.

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.
