update your certificates in the certificate manager. Sounds the policy was updated in the domain and you need to update your station to reflect that.

This is an error that we quite often get on the pc's of the company I work for when they have been moved to another object group in active directory.


To solve this we move the pc back to the correct object path and then remove the pc from the domain completley (add it to a work group for the time being) and then re- add it to the original domain.


Hope this helps.

Ditto what morris88 said. Dis-join the domain (join the "WORKGROUP" workgroup)reboot and rejoin the domain then reboot again. I have also see where a computer name needs to be changed as well. In this case disjoin the domain Reboot the PC, Change the name, Reboot the PC, Rejoin the domain. Rebooting the computer is essential for the changes to stick make sure to reboot between each change.
