Rebooting and logging in with a local administrator account is a sure 
fire way to fix this, assuming that administrator doesn't have any 
drives mapped over or anything else that will open a connection to the 
server.  For instance, I used to have an issue with clients that would 
seek out all network shares (xp style autodiscovery stuff) when my local 
admin account had a valid user/pass combo on the server.  If that's the 
case for you, you'll see objects in 'My Network Places'.  Delete all 
these, reboot again and see if things don't work better.
