xp wont logon until reboot ok not click

By 200048 ·
We have a really annoying problem that appears to be totally random , when you log on to an xp machine (sp1 & 2) machines odd machines at odd times will not log on until they are rebooted. You can type in user names and passwords and click the cancel button but the ok and shut down buttons "bounce" when you click them but nothing happens, likewise when you press enter.
the only way to cure this is to reboot the pc (power button) and then it is fine. The problem can happen twice in one day on the same machine or once a month on another, there is no pattern and in a school of 650 pc's and online exams happening you can imagine the frustration.

any one got any ideas on how to solve this problem, or anyone suffering the same symptoms.

advice greatly appreciated
