    Hello all,

    This is more of an annoyance than a real problem:

    I have a standalone Windows 2003 Server (not on a domain). I typically
    log into it using a standard user, and only use a user with Admin rights
    when I need it.

    Occasionally when logging in, the login process will begin and then
    immediately log me back out. Logging in again will complete successfully.

    - This only seems to happen with a normal user account. The admin
    account works fine all the time.

    - It seems to occur just after a reboot when logging in for the first

    - When it does happen, it only happens once. Logging in a second time
    will always work.

    - It doesn't coincide with Windows Updates having been applied before
    the reboot.

    - The server has recently been upgraded (reformat and clean install)
    from 2003 R2 Standard 32-bit to 2003 R2 Enterprise x64, and the problem
    is still there.

    - Nothing in the event log, no errors.

    This has me stumped. Any ideas?
