Tried all the above - I just cannot resolve this issue.  The best I did was go back to a previous restore point but eventually the issue came back.

Further clue to this issue -

Did another system restore.  I cannot ping this machine using its name nor its IP address and I get an Event ID 3210 from Netlogon.

I can however, ping from the machine to network resources.

Fixed by renaming the laptop completely.  Reckon the computer account has failed server side - many deleting and recreating didn't work - probably an adsi edit fix but new machine name was quicker.

thanks for all your help.

Hey, guess what, the problem came back!  this time on the users account I was building it for.
Only clue is, when this occurs, the local administrator account locks!

Any ideas please, gratefully received.
