Every now and then when user logs on to XP Pro SP3 PC (not administrator) the desktop comes up without icons or taskbar. PC responds to CTRL-ALT-DEL and opens Task manager, and then explorer.exe can be started as a New Task. However other start up tasks, such as anti-virus have not started either.

Without fail, by user logging off, and logging on again, all starts up fine.

Have used msconfig and turned off pretty well all non-essential startup tasks.
