I have a question about changing domains. In an earlier Expert Response you said:

My question is, will this also solve the problem of disjoining and joining different domains -- i.e., member of 'domain' in the Computer Name tab of System Properties?
I did a little more digging and found out that if you're talking about changing domains -- complete with authentication and whatnot -- the best way to do this is with a third-party program such as >Netswitcher. One other possible way to get around some of the problems of domain membership is to join the laptop to the most commonly-used domain, and then use NET USE /NETONLY and the RUNAS commands to do anything that involves credentials in the other domain.
