Map Network Drive option not working

When right clicking 'Computer' and selecting 'map network drive' nothing happens. Even when opening up 'Computer' and selecting the map network drive option nothing happens.

So far we've tried

Safe mode
Repair from disk
Logging on with other profiles

Apart from re-imagingthe machine, which we want to try and avoid I'm a bit stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Run : secpol.msc
Local security policy windows will be open.
Choose Security Options and then Network Security.
Go to LAN Manager Authentican Level
Set it to Send LM & NLTM, use NTMLv2 session.

Hope this will resolve your issue

To what type of network does the Network and Sharing Center say you're connected?
(i.e. Public, Private or Work)

That security policy fix is for OTHER machines to be able to be mapped (it would be applied to all the other machines), by the way... not for your machine to be able to open the Map Network Drive dialog.

Hi there,

It's already set to Send LM & NLTM, use NTMLv2 session.

Darr247 - it's on a domain network.

Thanks

If you click the 'start' orb, type in cmd, hold down a Ctrl key and a Shift key, hit Enter and release all 3 keys, then answer Yes to the UAC prompt... can you map a drive using the syntax
net use x: \\hostname\path\
or
net use x: \\ip.add.re.ss\path\
(where 'x' = the drive letter you want to map the path as)
or does that fail, too?

If that works in an Administrator window, but the same command[s] won't work from a regular command window, then the root cause of the Map network drive... dialog not appearing for you would appear to be related to the User account level.  e.g. can a member of the Super Users group get the dialog to appear?  Can a member of the Administrators group get the dialog to appear?
