There are a couple of reasons for this the obvious one is that the required file is missing but there is also the possibility of the Software loading too quickly for the hardware to keep up. With a lot of 2003 installations I've found that if you give the unit a chance to "catch its breath" so to speak between starting Windows and opening up things will work correctly so to do this I place a couple of accounts on the system and allow it to run for about 30 seconds before selecting the account to run on that seems to fix the problem quite effectively.

I generally only run across this problem on systems that have a lot of software installed and are a bit low on the performance side of things. It's a lot cheaper than replacing the hardware on those occasions when I run across it.
