    I have several win2k machines that when left on and logged in overnight are hung in the morning and have to be rebooted. We are a large shop (mostly Xp) and virusus are not an issue. Any thoughts would be appreciated. The machines are on independant cisco switches but on the same subnet.

    Thanks

    I had one user log out and then unplug their network cable. In the morning they could log in but they could not access any programs and had to reboot. The others that stayed connected had the same problem.
