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)
