Something is wrong with the DNS setting on the client I would bet.

Is this a workgroup or a domain?

If you have other clients that don't have this issue, open a command prompt window on one of them and on the problem PC (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter)

Once open, run the following command on both:

ipconfig /all

Compare output. The only thing that should differ from one client to another is the actual IP of each PC. The rest of the settings should be identical.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
