Windows 7: That age old problem with network drives

Windows 7 Professional X64
That age old problem with network drives

I am sorry to be raising this AGAIN as I know everyone has heard it 100 times before but I couldnt not find a solution that resolved this issue.

When I boot up my Win 7 Pro x64 machine I get that balloon that states "Could not reconnect all network drives". How do I get rid of this? I am hard wired into the network (not wireless) and I cannot find a way around it. All the solutions I have found state its either due to wireless network authentication occuring late in the boot process (but im hard wired) or that you need to upgrade to a Pro edition of windows (which I cam using). It is not disasterous if I am being honest its just mildly irritating so I thought I would ask if anyone had the solution.

Thanks in advance
