I reimaged my laptop with Win 7 SP1 after it had a browser hijack problem. The laptop is a member of a domain. I ran all the MS updates after the reimage. I now am not able to connect to any network shares when logged in with the domain administrator account. The error is "The account is not authorized to log in from this station". I have searched on this error and tried a number of local policy changes but they haven't worked. Any help greatly appreciated.

Does this issue occur to other accounts?
I suggest you check your account in AD to see if it is allowed to logon to the computers.
The account is not authorized to log in from this station

This happens in both the domain administrator account when logged onto the laptop and my personal login account which is also a member of the domain administrators group. Both accounts are domain wide administrator accounts with full permissions.
This happened after I ran all the updates from Microsoft, I was able to get to the server where we keep out anti-virus install and run the install. I am still able to connect to that server and see its shared folders. That is the only server that will let me connect.
I tried rolling the system back with restore to a point before the upgrades were installed but that did not fix the issue.
I am going to have to reimage again if I can't find a solution because I have to be able to connect to all the servers in our domain when needed.

I resolved the issue by opening a desktop PC not experiencing this problem and going to Local Security Policies and then opening the laptop up next to the desk top and it's Local Security Policies. I then went line by line and set the laptops policies to match the desktops. The only setting I could not set was "not defined" and for that one I seem to have picked the right alternative.
The path is :
Control Panel - System and Security - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy - Local Policies - Security Options
Thanks all for your help :)
