    I know that network connectivity is not the issue; I need to make it possible for users to access the domain from that computer as quickly as possible to avoid losing profit for the company. I also do not want to create any issues for a third-party application that identifies computers by SID. What should I do?

    I have ideas, but I don't know if any will actually fix the problem. PLEASE HELP.

    -Reinstalling Windows on the computer and create a new account in the domain
    -Rename the computer and create a new computer account with the new name in ADUC
    -Reset the computer account in ADUC, move the computer to a workgroup and then rejoin it to the domain
    -Move the computer to a workgroup then rejoin it to a domain.
