Open cmd.exe on that machine and type NET USE. Remove (delete) any orphan mapped drives.

Run TCP/IP Reset and 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 and test.
