Windows 7 saying "Check your network credentials. Your network user name or password has expired."

An end user keeps getting the message "Check your network credentials. Your network user name or password has expired." They have been here for years and we do not change our user names or passwords. They will reboot and then the problem will be fine for a couple of days. I will include an image.
Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Is this user trying to Access the Share folder on other server/machine when he/she gets the error message "Check your network credentials. Your network user name or password has expired."
Do we have any option to change/update the password on the same window?

regsampAuthor Commented:
He was in a file on a file server when the error last happened. Yes, there is a prompt to change the credentials.

Shahnawaz AhmedCloud Migration EngineerCommented:
Please click on change the password and keep it blank. Then try to access after this process.

Or you can give try to
To give you unrestricted access across the network, make Everyone appear in
the Security Tab. Go to the D drive in Disk Management, right-click it >
Properties > Security Tab > Edit > Add then type ‘Everyone’ (not the quotes)

OK etc. to finish."

There is nothing listed in the Credentials Manager right now. The message has not appeared again and right now they are accessing network shares. I rebooted and still no issue. It is intermittent.
