If resetting the account didn't work, you prolly have a busted SAM.
Restoring the SAM should fix the issue, take care to remember that the SAM will be rolled back to the backup version so you may need to do some updates. (users, trusts, etc)

Remove the AV10 computer from the domain (put it in a temp workgroup), reboot.
Remove the AV10 computer account on the DC, force replication. Wait a few minutes.
Rejoin AV10 in the domain.
Edit: You may also try netdom (used to be downloadable from MS's site). You can use netdom to reset the secure channel between the AV10 computer and the domain.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

SirDice the system is question is a PDC.
The SAM needs to be restored but booting from the ERD and repairing it.
