user log in is not showing network drives

I have a user on our network that can log in to any computer on our network except one (Computer-X), The user is able to see our network drives and work from them.

Computer-X has no trouble with all other users log in to this computer, seeing our network and being able to work from them. Like our file sharing.

All uses have the same network log in type. Account - basic user.

I have tried: deleting account and reinstalling, giving administrative privileges, deleted in renewed DNS accounts changed the UCA.

the problem is only this computer and no other on the network.

If this is Windows 7 you need to get in the registry and delete his account from there. It's probably stuck pulling in some old info that's causing problems.

To clear user local profile via registry:

1.   Press on Start > Run >Regedit

 2.  Navigate to the following registry key :“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList”

3.   Under ProfileList navigate to binary key’s like this: S-1-5-21-3656904587-1668747452-4095529-500

4.    On the right side under ProfileImagePath you'll see the profile path.

5.    Chose the one with the desired user and delete the long registry key like: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList”

When logged onto the computer can the user browse the server shares via the run command at all (i.e. \\server\share)?

If they can do this, does the computer allow you to map the drive manually?

If the above works this would indicate an issue at logon. How are the drives mapped (logon script? Group Policy?). If Group Policy it may be worth running a gpresult on the computer with the user logged on, see if something is being denied.

Also worth having a look at the event log of the computer - any errors/warnings for when the user logs on?

No the run command \\server\share does not work.
Logon script is how we mapped the drives.

I'll go and try to delete user account through regedit.
Then reinstall it.

Well let you know what happens.
thanks people for your help

   nothing I did worked... so I took from both of you and deleted the account entirely and started over with a new user name and account...
