Don't have a clue why its set to Thor but one idea to fix it is below.
There's a program on the Win9 CD called 'Policy Editor'. (Exists on other MS
OSs aswell - I just don't know where). One of the settings is domain. Save the
relavent config.pol or config.nt(?) in your 'netlogon' share.
This will be pulled down on logon and the policy applied. Might take a
reboot though - never figured out exactly when it applied things that
normally need a reboot.
Would be more specific only I haven't used it in over a year and a half.
You might want to try logging into the system(sans network logon) and
changing it there. See previous comment relating to reboot.
