Windows 7 no longer authenticates to Windows 2000 Server

Specs: Macintosh

I run a Windows 2000 web server. As of a day or so ago I started receiving calls from customers running Windows 7 that they cannot log into secure directories on their websites (on my Windows 2000 server). I assume this has to do with a recent update to Windows 7. Does anyone out there have any idea what happened and how I can fix it on the server end or what I can tell my customers so they can fix it on the Windows 7 end? Thank you. This happened once before about a year ago. The problem eventually fixed itself but I don't want to rely on that happening if it is something I can fix.

What protocol are they using? Is it http via a website, FTP, WebDAV, or something else? I'm guessing that it's HTTP and you're using integrated Windows authentication. If this is the case, change it to basic authentication and it shouldn't matter which OS they're using.
