Whenever I boot my laptop for the first time after a "Shut Down" it tells me it can't open the temporary directory. I then reboot the machine and it's perfectly normal.

Though hardly life threatening it's a very annoying problem, particularly since I can't think of a single difference that windows would know about when comparing turning the computer off & on and "rebooting" it.

Any tips, tricks, pointers, hints, suggestions or cryptic clues appreciated!

run a "chkdsk /f" on the hard drive – Moab Jun 8 '11 at 14:29
That doesn't appear to have helped. No errors were found and the problem still exists. – Martin KS Jun 15 '11 at 7:28

Installing windows7 service pack 1 appears to have worked.
