Windows 7: Workstation Giving logon errors. "The trust relationship"

Workstation Giving logon errors. "The trust relationship"

Hi, i have a set of office computers linked to the main local Domain server. Its been a while now that some computers has been giving logon errors telling me "The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship". I could only temporarily fix it by doing a clean install of windows and joining the Domain server again, but it has happened the 3rd time today after a few months of no errors. Im thinking of finnishing this regular error by doing a clean install of the server itself but im afraid of losing data stored and have to set up all my settings all over again. So if theres any permanent fix to this it would be extemely appreciated.
