Are you a system administrator?
Can you check if there is no IP restrictions for your login.

Hello Paul,
to me this looks like you're maybe using a connected app plugin via an OAuth connection and the token expires after a few hours. 
If you're not the system admin, I would suggest to contact him to check the settings of the connected apps.

Thanks Vineet, Yes i am System Admin and No IP restrictions.

Thanks Joris! I am connected through Google Chrome without any plugin app.

But still same error!

What I'm assuming now if that you are using a chrome extension to manage the logins.
Is this created by you, or you just installed one from the chrome extension store?
If yes, then maybe you would want to check out the API keys and other credentials.

Also, check the login history of the user in question, perhaps you may get some clue for the OAuth failure in there.

I have a Chatter Desktop user that keeps getting the same message "We can't authorize you because of an OAuth error. For more information, contact your Salesforce administrator.
You didn't complete the approval process before it expired. Please try again."
She was using the desktop app fine and then one day, all the sudden... she wasn't "online" and there was nothing she could do to get the green button to go on and make her available.  I told her to log out and log back in, which she did however she forgot her password, so she re-set it.  when she went back into the desktop app to use her new password, that's when she got this message.  I am the system admin and have checked her user page and it shows she had a successful online loging but no chatter desktop activity since she was last able to use it.  PLEASE HELP!

Not sure if this is the easiest way but I had the same issue with Chatter Desktop and resolved it by:
1) Going to My Settings | Personal | Advanced User Details | OAuth Connected Apps, and then finding Chatter Desktop in the list and revoking all the tokens. 
2) Uninstalling Chatter Desktop
3) Reinstalling Chatter Desktop
When I opened it asked me to reauthorize, and then I could log in with no problem.
