`I reinstalled the uername and still get the message`

You mean, you deleted the account and set up a new one with the same name?

Yes thats what i did. The pc is netowrked with 5 other pcs and a server

Anyone have an idea

The account works fine on the other machines. It just says on this one that the account has been configured to deny access to the computer. Tyr another computer.
As i said, the username and password are fine on the other computers

I don`t think you can log on at the same time from two computers using the same log on details (Username & Password) Try logging off that user from the other computers and then try from the problem PC.

as a Systems Manager. Lots and lots of questions over the last few days.

We are all very happy to help you, but I think that you should offer to make a gift in recompense.

Possibly to "Children in Need" to a value of the equivalent as the amount an experienced Systems Manager would charge!
