One user only being ask for username for mapped drive in dos window

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Most users have a start up script which maps 3 network drives. Two are to normal folders and one is to a Sharepoint folder.
All three have the same layout in sysvol:
net use g: \\\depts
net use m: \\\apps
net use y: \\\public
Y drive being the Sharepoint.
Okay, when she logs onto her machine, Win7, a dos window is left open which asks for her user name for the Y drive.
In My computer she can get to g and m, but Y is not shown.
I tried getting her to log onto another Win 7 PC and same problem.
But, when she tried it on a XP machine, it works fine!!!!!!!!!!
Any ideas? She is a department admininstrator and uses the Y drive constantly.
BTW, I changed the scripts to IP addresses because sometimes, other users lost connectivity; possibly DNS but that's another story.
