    I have had inexplicable issues with 2000 before. I would log on as domain admin and see if the problem still exists. Make sure to run microsoft update and get all of the updates. I would really suggest seeing if they can upgrade to 2003, as a lot of programs are no longer supporting integration with 2000; upgrading my machines to office 2003 has alleviated 2000 woes. I know this is a crap answer, but installing 03 always seems to work for me, even on older machines.

    Is it just on one client machine or all client machines?

    I think it varying from machine to machine. If the same user logs in to different computers, I don't see the problem. All are using XP.
    thank you..
