Hi, I have a workstation that can not connect to our file share/ print server. I can connect to others in the network with no problems. If I login as another person on the same workstation they can get to them. If I login at another computer, I can get to them.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is some sort of corruption with the user profile on that workstation.
1. Reboot
2. Login as Administrator
3. Rename the C:\Documents and Settings\USERPROFILE folder.
4. Reboot
5. Login with your user profile. Windows will recreate the folder.
6. Copy all documents and favorites to the new user profile folder.

    Then I created a local account, I forgot to put it into the admin group before rebooting, I logged on locally, to find my mistake, now I couldn't get back onto the domain. I could ping it, I can synch to it, but cant login to it with any account.. I upgraded the HD and am reloading, will USB the old drive to get to files...

    Thats strange.. Your user profile folder shouldn't have given that error, and logging into an administrator account right after a reboot would have avoided any file in use errors for the folder. Running in Safemode may have fixed your error. But it looks like you've worked around it. Hope things go well.

    try to disjoin the computer from the domain and add it back on. It seems like a trust relationship issue here.
