Whoops!

Change this line

If objFSO.DriveExists(strDrive) = True Then objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDrive, True

to

If objFSO.DriveExists(strDrive) = True Then objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDrive, True, True

Hi, I'm wondering if you've got some sort of cached credentials to a network resource....

Please follow the instructions in this article:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/usercpl_manage_passwords.mspx

to check if you have any cached passwords, and remove those that are for the same resource as the server you are trying to map a drive to.....

Regards,

Rob.
