This is a fairly common issue within Windows 7. The issue is that, while you don't see it, your computer has a login and password on the domain just like your user account. The password for this account changes periodically, and sometimes Windows 7 fails to update it properly, so the password on the machine, and the one on the server, are out of sync.

ktaczala is right in the solution; the only way to resolve the issue is to remove the computer from the domain (add it to a 'workgroup'), reboot, then join back to the domain again and reboot a second time.

This will not delete any of the domain user profiles, or any data on the machine, thankfully, though it is a bit of a pain to do.

Just as an FYI - there is no need to re-boot the system after removing it from the Domain.
Move it to Workgroup, immediately add it back to the Domain, then re-boot.
