Can't believe I missed that out. Windows XP with SP3. Updated the question.

Our drive mappings are created by Group Policy, but the thing is, the drives are mapping. They appear if you run "net use" in a Command Prompt, they just don't appear in My Computer.

Different bug. That bug is about "...a collision with the existing mapped network drive". That isn't the case here, the drives are mapped to available drive letters. They show fine in a command prompt, they just don't show in Windows Explorer.

All our Service Desk personnel are members of a group that has been created specifically to allow certain rights. That group was missing from the local Administrators group on the PC. Added that group to the PC and now everything works as expected. Thanks.

One thing that may or may not be related. When I use the runas command in a Command Prompt I need to include the machine name to use any of the local machine accounts. Otherwise it doesn't seem to recognise the accounts.

This pointed us in the right direction. Checked explorer.exe in Process Explorer and a bunch of Novell DLLs were loaded. We stopped using Novell a few months ago. Removed Novell completely from the PC and now network drives appear to be mapping correctly. Thanks.
