A client of mine bought a new pc, installed Windows 7 and a bunch of software applications, then asked me to connect it to the domain.

After doing this alot of programs stopped working correctly, giving out permission errors.
(for example: dropbox cannot start due to permission problems)

The user in question has admin rights for his user on the domain.

any idea why this is happening?

Default domain permissions might have been changed on the client, or, the software were not installed with default options.
Did you consider removing the client from the domain and adding it again?

We cannot solve a problem that is only described that vaguely, sorry.
"A bunch of software"? "permission problems"? What should that mean?
You only gave one example and that without the error message.

Of course normally we don't expect to see any change after domain joining.
What could go wrong: If you selected to install a software "only for me", which is a common option in setups, then the software will not run for the domain user because that's a different user. You would need to reinstall the software. Try that, please and/or come back with details.

The client reinstalled the system, I think there was a problem during the installation, They where getting one error after the other on a newly installed computer.

I didn't get any more details so I could not provide them here.
