Can not remove some network drives... (winxp sp2)

On one workstation network drives are showing on 'My Computer' under Other as 'C on IBMR40', 'D on IBMR40', and 'Z on IBMR40' and listed as System Folder under Details.

If I go to Tools and then Disconnect Network Drive, they are listed as \\TSCLIENT\C, \\TSCLIENT\D, and \\TSCLIENT\Z.  I can then disconnect all of them and receive the message there are no more drives to disconnect if I go to Disconnect Network Drive again, but they still appear on the 'My Computer' screen and are still accessible if I click on any of them.

-- Right clicking only gives me the option to Open, Explore, Create Shortcut.
-- I have administrator rights! WinXP SP2

Any idea how I can delete these????  Please let me know if you need anymore information.

I think you would need to remove access in AD (which sadly, I don't have any experience, yet, administering.)

These computers are not in a Domain, just a work group.  The only thing I can think is that something happened when this computer was updated to SP2.  (which wasn't until a week ago because of some software that was installed on it)
