    I have a remote user who is unable to login to his laptop.

    His user name and passwords are working to access network resources, so we know that it is correct and working on the domain.

    However, something happened and now he cannot login to his laptop. It will not accept his password to login to the local machine. He is logged in now as administrator but when we look under Users Profiles his profile is not there. He is running windows xp. The keyboard is not typing alternate characters.

    First thought is he has moved the machine account from the domain to workgroup.
