Network Drive error

I have a couple of new computers that when they try to access our network "share" drive they get a message "Windows cannot find 'ntldr.exe'. Make sure you typed the name carefully and try again."

They can access it if I take them through explorer, just not using "my computer" which most users want to do.

Any suggestions....

You might want to check those systems *thoroughly* for malware. "ntldr.exe" is NOT a Windows system file; the original boot file is just named "ntldr".

You will find a subfolder called shell there. Delete it and try to access the share again.
