Shared resources

I have 45 users with roaming profiles which used to reside on a server where AD services were running, later i moved the folders to another server and modified the links for all user in AD to obtain the roaming profile from the new server which works as file server. Now when i turn of the old server some of the users complain that their systems get too slow and even they cannot open a single MS word file neither they can saved it but when i turn ON the server back everything gets normal. I tried to use the network monitor to monitor the incoming connections to the old server and i found the following. I have pasted the logs for two users. \\acmew3dc01\users was the old shared folder and now this is over the file server. So i don't know why still users machines are accessing the old shares. Thanks

Please check the event viwer detials and delete the shared resources entry from the Registry editor of that machines Hkey_localmachine>system>current control set>services>lanman sever>shares...and delete the rightside shared drives or folders enteries ...try with this and propely disconnect the mapped drives on the cilent desktops for old server drives and check the properly configured the internal dns server settings.
