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

on
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.

I am trying to get on the machine to see if there are any errors in the Event Logs. Now we did recently change his password two weeks ago and the problem seems to have been happening since then.

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?
