Computer can't see domain controller

I have a user who couldn't connect to the server shares anymore. I'm able to ping the server and DNS configuration have not changed and are all configured properly.

In an attempt to fix this I removed the computer form the domain name and now when I try to rejoin I get "the network path was not found"
path not found
The DC server is a SBS 2007 and the workstation is a Windows 8 computer.

I can ping the server by name form the workstation and also the domain name and it resolve to the IP address of the server which is 192.168.16.2

Here is the ipconfig /all form the workstation

Can you enable the "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper" service then try again?

Any event logs on the DC or the workstation that can shed some light on this?

Check the DNS server event logs. Restart the DNS Server service and retry.

I found the solution. The user on this computer works at a front counter in a mobile phone company so they plug in customer phones all the time to backup and restore data. It turns out that every time a black berry phone is connected a network adapters is installed. So there where over a 100 adapters listed. I removed them all and the computer stating communicating properly with the server again.
