Hello, I was thinking that it could be down to a permissions setting, however, I did a little digging and found this
This appears to be a random bug in Windows XP, but there is a fix that you can apply on the affected computer.
* Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC.
* Under computer configuration, expand administrative templatessystemlogon.
* Select the "Always wait for the network at computer startup" value.
* The default state is "not configured." Set this to "On."
Hope this helps
