delete the computer account from the domain.
Give the computer a new name and make sure its unique on the domain.

Then try again.
make sure that you are not connected to the domain controller from another pc (also via shared directories)

shared directories as meant as mappings.

This is your problem.

You must delete all the drive mappings first!

Domains will not allow you to join if you already have a mapped network drive to the domain at the time you try and join the domain.

Answer #1 is correct. When your computer was on the domain, it created a computer account. When you removed the system from the domain, the account was not removed. Now that you are wanting to join back to the network, you re-joined, but the domain sees a conflict of credentials from the first domain account. Each computer has a SID (Security ID). When you rejoined, a new SID was given to the computer, even though it had the same name. Therefore the conflict of credentials.
Disconnect the computer from the domain. Go to the domain controller and delete the account for this computer. Synchronize the domain so that all domain controllers know that this sytem account has been deleted.
Then on your computer (still disconnected from the network) put into a workgroup. Finally, re-connect your computer and join it back to the domain. This will clear up the confict of credentials. You will need to re-map your drives again. But this will correct your problem.
Hope this helps.
