Can someone please tell me how to keep Windows 2000 from automatically creating a shortcut to the network drives that I use? I know that I can delete them from the NetHood folder, but I would prefer that they were never created at all. Thanks.

How were these created to begin with, login script or mapped manually? If they were mapped manually then you need to open the My Computer icon, right click on the drive, choose disconnect. This will permanently disconnect the drive. If it is being mapped by a login script then the network administrator needs to take care of it for you.

I'm talking about the shortcut icons that are created under My Network Places in the Windows2000 Explorer. Everytime I use a folder on the network, a shortcut is created automatically. I want to turn this off.
