You can try using TWEAKUI to turn off these drives. See \tools\reskit\powertoy. This is the simplest way to do it.  I hope this helps.

You can try to delete all connections before executing the specific line.
Example

..........
..........
net use * /d
net use u: \\server\user$
..........
..........

Good luck.

re:tony

that may very well work, but i'll have to be a bit more selective because there are a few people with their own shares...

fix, i have writen a batch file that has a share delete command for every possible drive letter.  then, for those special cases, i will rem out a line and those shares will not be deleted. the batch file will be localized on the machine...

thanks tony
