    Hi everyone. So, here’s my issue. I’m using group policy preferences to map
    drives for my Windows XP and Vista clients. The Windows XP clients are fine,
    but I notice that from time to time when a standard or admin user logs on to
    a Vista clients, the mapped drives will not show up. When he logs off and
    back on again, they appear. I don’t believe this is the UAC issue that other
    people have had. Any tips on solving this issue? I am using the Update
    Action, Reconnect is clear, Hide/Show this driver is “Show this drive†and
    Hide/Show all drivers is “No Changeâ€

    That didn't seem to be related to UAC... Any other suggestions? Is there
    some log I can look at about GPO Preferences?

    So I solved my own problem... if you have drive maps that disappear every
    other logon, you need to enable ""Always wait for network at computer startup
    and logon" and create a GPO to apply it to the affected workstations... This
    seems like a bug to me...
