Server 2003 computer account deleted and readded; login unsuccessful

By r4lanmgr ·
I have a 2003 server sp2 that is going into a colocation, and a replication of an IMAIL server currently in production.

The odd thing about this server is that after deleting the ptr records for its host name in the DNS server,resetting the original computer account and then ultimately deleting the account and removing to a workgroup, I can still browse active directory but not login and authenticate. I don't know why it would allow me to browse other AD computers, servers, etc in explorer when it doesn't have an account in there right now....
Any ideas? Do I need to roll back sp2 and reinstall 2003 to get back on active directory and authenticating to a DC?
