New user inherited 'The remote server may be unavailable'

Hello
I have just started a new post where I have inherited an Alfreso server with at least one issue. I have never used Alfresco but have extensive knowledge in open source such as Moodle, Mahara, Drupal etc and some server admin.

The issue with this Alfresco instance is with the login. I can get to the login form but that gives an error of:
"The remote server may be unavailable or your authentication details have not been recognized"

I have restarted the Tomcat service and also the machine so far.

This instance of Alfresco 4.0d Community is running on the D drive of a VM Windows server 2008 R2 Standard with 3GB RAM, it has been configured to run on port 8080.

The only alfresco log I can find is in C:/Windows/System32 created today:
