Please try again later. If this message continues to appear contact your System Administrator for assistance.“ what do i do?

    Does your computer have a valid account in Active Directory?

    Try pinging DC as Jon said. If you can ping it re-join it to the domain.

    take the computer out of the domain, into a workgroup. Reboot. Add the computer back into the domain.

    Remove the computer from AD. Then re-add to to the Domain and problem will be resolved. Worked for me.
