ringbearer, I don't know anything about Windows 2000, but a search via Google found this suggestion here:-
click here

"Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc Computer Configuration -> Admin Templates -> System -> Logon Change the value for "Maximum retries to unload and update user profile" to Enabled with a value of 5 or 10. If you want more info.... look at the right-hand pane once you're in that policy."
