  1. Is the account locked or disabled? To check go to the user object in AD -> Account Tab -> Account options.

    Failing that, have you ruled out user error? Capslock/numlock etc which could be altering the imputed password?
  2. This problem is only happening to one computer that is on a domain none of the users can log on to this computer I was thinking that the computer profile got corrupted will joining the computer the domain sort this problem out?

    I ran into this problem with a Win 7 computer today. I'm not sure if it will work for you, but I'll tell you what I did. First, I created the computer in active directory users and computers. Once that was done, I went to the computer and went into the network adapter's IP4 properties. It was set to get a DNS server address automatically, so I changed that to be the DNS server on the network. Once I did that, the computer was joined to the domain and all problems magically went away. After a reboot, I changed that DNS setting back to obtain an address automatically. I have NO idea what caused the problem to this one computer or why that fixed it. Anyway, might be worth trying if you are still having the problem. Good luck.

    If the computer is not on the domain, how can the a user logon to a domain account? Or did you mean RE-joining to the domain?

    Remove it from the domain and re-ad it, should take care of things.
