HELP... one of my users inadvertently changed their machine from a domain member to a workgroup member...

Now I can't even get past the login screen... IS there a way to bypass this? I really need to get this working... I am supposed to leave 2morrow for Christmas Vacation

XP PRO HELP PLEASE

Hi rmfred,
Networks ahhhhhh, they can be so painful.

Check the network settings from another machine that has access an set the trouble pc up as a domain member again.

Hope that helps

got it working

Well I thought all I'd have to do once I gained access to the machine was to change it back to a domain member... but it wouldn't let me? Must have something in the registry or somewhere else? So I just created a new user on the domain and renamed the pc to that user and transferred some files and setting from the old user account to the new one and it appears that all is good...
thanks
