Map drive error with 3787 "You must log on before do this operation"

Dear EE members,
I have a client who is using win me vmplayer, where she always can't connect to network drive in the
morning. I trace her problem and even run the network script :
ping localhost -n 10>nul
net use f: \\\General

Still no help!

I want to perform persistent mapping upon win me, but don't know how to do and is it helpful in her
