can't delete mapped drive

One of our users get a mapped drive that I cannot delete.  It's a drive I've mapped in the past but it no longer exists.  I've tried net use t: /delete. it completes successfully but comes back at next login.  I ran gpresult and it's not being created by a GPO.  I've disconnected it from Network Neighborhood but it still returns.  What am I missing?
Also the user is logging on remotely via Citrix.  If the user logs on locally the drive is not mapped.

I think you can set a home drive on the Citirix Server, which would then apply to the users when they login, as this sounds to be.

There are no settings on her profile for Terminal Services Profile.  Where else could this setting be?

A quick and easy fix might be to delete or rename (to transfer back certain settings and shortcuts - might be best to do it this way) her profile on that server.

Actually we have 2 Citrix servers and it happens on both.  I can delete the profile, but I'll leave that to last resort.

Possibly a batch file being run in the startup menu or set in the autorun part of the registry.  See if Microsoft's Autoruns can be run while she is logged in to see what be the culprit.

I've got autorun running on her login.  I don't see a mapped drive.  Where in autorun would you suggest I look?

In the All tab.  Look at everything that is being loaded.

I did that while waiting for your reply.  I don't see anything that indicates a batch file or mapped drive.  I'll look again, could of missed it.  If it's not there, any other suggestions?

For one user, just create a batch or cmd file to delete the T drive mapping.

Make a note of what the T: drive tries to map to (\\server\share) and search for that in the registry.

Also, shortcuts to documents on a server always contain both the mapped name (e.g. t:\document.doc) *and* the underlying UNC path (\\server\share\directory\document.doc)

If such a shortcut is started the OS tries to recreate the mapping based on the info in the shortcut.

I can find it and delete it, but at next log on it's back.  I can't find what's mapping it.  Frustrating

I deleted the users profiles on both Citrix servers.  Logged on as the user and the mapped drive is still there.
