Losing credentials

  1. I posted about this earlier (on Feb. 6th) but now i've got a bit more

    I have a location where Windows XP boxes, recently joined to the domain, are
    [seemingly] randomly asking for the user's credentials again.

    This happens in two products - Outlook 2003 and Internet Explorer 6.

    Outlook 2003 happens more often. When you start Outlook, it pulls up the
    login box (same one as you'd get in IE). After you log in, it works fine,
    and continues to work fine. If you leave it open, it doesn't seem to ask for
    the credentials again. If you close it, and reopen it sometime later, it
    sometimes does ask again, other times it doesn't.

    IE6 it happens less frequently, but is essentially the same behavior.

    All machines as Windows XP SP1 with Office 2003. All are joined to the
    domain, and all users can log into the machines (with the domain
    information) with no problem.

    Thoughts on what to look for?

    Thanks in advance,
