Please check if you have a drive mapped to a server that is no longer accessible. Sometimes removing a drive from the list resolves the issue. You may also try to disable and then re-enable Client for Microsoft Networks from within your network adapter properties. The problem is more common on Windows XP machine that is not current on its service packs. There is a Microsoft Support article highlighting this issue. It also has some steps for registry edits as a hotfix but it only if you are running a Windows XP. Hope that this helps.**
