On login, My Documents loads, but desktop and start bar does not
After a bit of help really ... When students and staff are logging into some machines, they get the My Documents Folder display, but no desktop or start menu loads. Initially i thought it might be an issue with Sophos, but checked the console, and nothing suspicious is being flagged up on any of the machines affected.
If the user does ctrl + alt + del and logs out, they are then able to log in again successfully. This is also happening of random machines, to random users it seems.
I do not think it is a profile issue either, as i have deleted the profiles from the machines and the server so the user picks up a fresh profile, and the issue is still happening.
Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any help would be great?
