Cannot connect to a mapped drive from windows 7 professional 64 bit

I have a windows 7 professional, 64 bit client, have mapped drives to two different servers, one is fine to shared drives on a windows 2003 server, the other mapped drives to the 2nd windows 2003 server will not connect.  I have unjoined from the domain, rejoined the domain, logged in as a different user, cannot map the drive to this server.  The only microsoft troubleshoot is to make sure the device can accept print and file connections.

 File Print and sharing is turned on on the windows 2003 server.  I cannot map a drive on any machine in the domain to this shared folder. This was working fine. We added nothing, did nothing to the server nor the workstation and the user cannot connect to the drive.  We need the drive as this is an application server that this users every day.

Can you access the shared by IP?
Can you access the shared by hostname?

Check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA this should be 1

No, could not access the shared drive by ip or host name.  It just stopped working.  I had this happen again to a different client machine.  Discovered it was symantec endpoint manager.  uninstalled from the server and everything works.

I resolved this issue by removing Symantec Endpoint Manager from the workstation.  This resolved the issue.
