It seems to me from the way you described your problem is that you draw your
profiles from the network server in the domain. It might be a mandatory or
roaming profile and if the server were shut down when that happens, that could
be why you're seeing the error msg. I'm guessing that your machine is unable to
connect or find the domain server machine so look to make sure you are in the
correct domain, and failing that, I do have a drastic step that could
potentially land you in hot water with the network admin, but you'll be able to
use your machine so if you're ready to take the risk......

1. Right click 'my computer'>properties>computer name>change>tick workgroup and
enter the name of your domain. Ok all the way out.
2. Go to control panel>user accounts>create user accounts and make a local admin
account with the same username and password as your domain account. Ok your way
3. Reboot, login using your newly created account and you'll probably get a
warning of some sort about being disjoined from the domain. You're back in
business and you'll be able to access the network resources as long as your
username and password matches your domain username and password. However, your
admin might notice something if he/she is shrewd enough.
