comment Mapped drives not showing in first run of Windows Explorer
Should have mentioned our PCs have all been upgraded to Service Pack 3 which includes this fix.

comment Cannot Login as any user other than Root - permission denied
How did you manage to get logged in as root? Isn't the root account locked by default in Ubuntu? help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

Just checked and "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" is enabled on all of our PCs, including the problem ones.

Thanks but no. Mapped drives are definitely not empty.

Thanks but I don't think it is this. The mapping is being made and is available, it just isn't showing in Windows Explorer.

comment Problems with user's AD accounts randomly locking
Should mention that this turned out to be a case of the guy moving to another dept, but his former colleagues kept his PC running 24/7 logged into his account because it was running a particular piece of software. So, nothing at all to do with the browser election messages.

Went through this list. Computer specs okay. Outlook updated with latest service pack. No PST or OST files, addins, gadgets, or desktop search tools. No RSS feeds. Using same anti-virus software (which is up to date) as everyone else, which doesn't show any particularly noticeable change in activity when opening attachments anyway. And don't think it can be a server problem since the same attachments can be accessed okay on other PCs.
