1. Run TCP/IP Reset, DNS Flush
Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

2. Check Advanced Network Settings that Network Discovery and File/Print sharing are ON and the computer has a Domain Network Profile. Make sure that wasn't somehow changed/

3. Set up a new profile on the local computer for the person and try the new profile.
