When I log on, My network drives appear with a red "X" on them. I have to click on them to bring them up. I want to make it so that they are up and running when I log on. How can I achieve this?

Please do this

Click Start -> Run -> Regedit.
Locate and then right-click the following registry subkey:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"
Create a new DWORD Value named "EnableLinkedConnections" without the quotes.
Double-click  EnableLinkedConnections , and enter a value 1.
Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
