I have users that get presented with the netlogon  folder every time they log into the network. Is there an option that I can check in a GPO that prevents this from happening?  

The window\folder is displayed as:


Sometimes the folder is not launched and an error is displayed in it's replacement.  It reads:

Windows cannot fide '.idlis,,,,\\servername\netlogon'  Make sure you typed thename correctly.  This is getting fairly annoying every time they log into the network.  I do have a user startup-script created in a GPO that simply maps network drives at login.
