We have one domain user who cannot connect to the shared server.  He can connect to all other computers but this one.  He has win7 64 trying to connect to win server 2008.  When I log on as an admin on his computer I can connect to the server.  I am able to ping the server under his name with no problem.

is his ad account listed correctly in the share and ntfs permissions?

It seems to have stopped working when he changed his password.

it should just be a simple logoff and back on, ntfs permissions can sometimes be behind when a user changes his password..

Figured it out.  Had to go to control panel -> manage users -> manage credentials and delete the server credential.
