    Trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed

    We have an employee that reset the password on the front desk computer running Windows 10 by pressing ctrl-alt-delete, reset password. Once attempting to login with the new password the error message was displayed "Trust relationship between this workstation
    and the primary domain failed." We were able to get on the computer by unplugging from the network, rebooting and using the old password to login. Once logged in how can we now reestablish the trust between this workstation and the domain? I have looked at
    many fixes online but most of them are Windows 7 related and this machine was upgraded to 10. Our server is a small business 2011. Please help!
