Default Virus issue - unable to map network drives/connect to a domain

I am having an issue with some client computers running xp, they are unable to connect to the domain or map network drives. I have ghosted these computer for a temporary solution but it has been happening to multiple computers now.

The error message that comes up when I try to map a drive or connect to the domain is "network location cannot be reached"

Any Ideas on how to resolve this problem without having to ghost these computers?

if there are no impt files just reformat so you can start new. if there are a lot of workstations, just try remote/unattended installation...

if you want to learn unattended installation, here's a link:

Were they ever connected to the domain? If so, you might try removing them from the domain, change the name of the computer, the try to rejoin.
