I also have this problem on the first two computers I loaded sp3 on. The first I installed sp2 on top of a xp sp2 somputer; the second was a clean install from a xp cd (sp3 slipstreamed into xp sp2). We also redirect the users my documents to a network (novell) drive. Please post the solution when you receive it, it will be much appreciated.
