Windows 7: Domain PC won't accept known good username and password

Domain PC won't accept known good username and password

So, I get a call that this domain username is giving invalid password. Of course, like any other tech, I assume that the user is putting in the password wrong, so I get into the remote access for the computer. I put in the password. No dice.

I log into another computer in the same area, log in with the username and password, logs in without issue. Go back to the offender and log in with an admin domain account, no issue. So, now, I've blown out everything related to this user account, removed and readded it to the valid user list, nuked and deleted the user profile by deleting from profile list, physically deleting the profile, and making sure that the profile wasn't in the registry. Still no dice. I even tried removing and readding to the domain just to say I did it. Any thoughts?
