    Explorer hanging

    Hi,
    I have one image that I use for all the laptops in school and it seems to work fine, but one of the teachers laptops is constantly hanging. It will work fine for a short period of time (10 minutes say) but then explorer will stop responding and the only way to get round it is to reboot, even restarting explorer doesn't help.
    It seems to get worse if I'm doing things involving network drives, such as mapping them or moving data.

    Any ideas? This is driving me insane!

    Cheers for the help so far.

    I'm using Sophos.

    How did you fix the permissions problem?

    Lol, I'd love to. IE8 has caused no end of problems with ePortal. Have installed Firefox on to most machine now.
