Another semester and more Windows 7 problems.  These are all problems
that happen even after a reboot.  Today's flavor:

Network Identity Manager can get kerberos tickets but not AFS tickets.
There's a long pause and then it says it couldn't get tickets.

On the Network and Sharing Center Control Panel, it lists an
"Unidentified Public Network" called AFS with "No network access".  You
can view the poor AFS service sending one message after another without
response.  It says it is using the Loopback adapter which is apparently

aklog -d dies with the classic error:
aklog: ktc 7 (11862791) while obtaining tickets.
aklog -d shows it is at the very end while "Getting tokens".

System error 5 has occurred.
ACcess is denied.

I haven't see "System error 5" before.  And the error is immediate.
(Not taking a long time first.)  I even get the "Access is denied"
error when running with system adminstrator privilege.

Any clues to fixing this problem?
Please reply directly to me as well as to the list (I use digesting).

Best regards,
