The network name cannot be found.
One possible solution is to use Regedit to modify (on my Windows 7 machine)
- HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders->Personal
- HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/User Shell Folders->Personal
Note: There had been some changes in the network recently and they did not propagate to this level.
This is a common error, and effects MOSS, SQLSRVR, PS.. etc… Many of those have patches that can be obtained from Microsoft.
