Explorer Doesn't Load Upon Logon

Specs: Windows XP, Varies
I have several users who's XP doesn't load explorer.exe after they log into Windows. It's a common problem, but it's inconsistent and intermittent; it doesn't happen to all users.

I've tried disabling unnecessary startup items using msconfig and also tried putting explorer in the starup, but neither has worked.

Anyone have any ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Not sure but see if this Regirstry location has this ---
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Name ab Shell Type REG_SZ Data Explorer.exe
This page has alot of XP fixes
Some require the download of a VBS, or Regedits file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"To use the Regedits" or "To use the VBS files"

Then go to line 195, then click item in right hand column.
