As always, thank you for the reply.
I realize that this is most likely a Windows XP issue with the changing of
the icon status in the systray, I've just never seen it before. I was
hoping someone else had seen it and was familar with the issue.
I should mention that this is on a domain running Windows Server 2003
Standard as the Domain Server. The only logon script that's running is a
short .bat file to map the network drives.
As for the "No-Title" issue. You see the No-Title when you right-click on
the taskbar, go to Properties, select the Customize button, and look next to
the VNC icon under Current Items. Where it usually says VNC Service Mode
and the IP address it will say No-Title.
These two issues are absent right after a load of the program and only seem
to appear after a reboot. I too think there mustbe something with the way
Windows logs on but have never seen this before.
