samba-users: [Samba] Error joining domain "The specified ac

[Samba] Error joining domain "The specified account already exists"

I have reinstalled samba from scratch and copied my previous smb.conf.
My main desktop was logged on in the domain. When I try re-add my main
desktop to the domain I get:

 "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain
"MYDOMAIN": The specified account already exists"

I tried completely removing and re-installing samba which didn't work
either. Removing and readding the WINDOWS7$ useraccount also didn't
work. Thanks in advance for your help.
