Deleted items in My Network Places reappear


I'm having a problem with old records reappearing in my network places.

When I delete and item in My Network Places the items eventually reappear.

Any help on preventing these reappearing would be most helpful.

Roaming Profile.. You nailed it....
My Network Places are stored as shortcuts in the C:\Documents and Settings\USERID\Nethood folder. When you are logged in, you are working on your cached profile, on the workstation. You delete the files,. and the Roaming Profile is supposed to upload to the server, but for some reason your local changes arent being copied over. When you log back in the network copy of the profile, with the NetHood folder and all, come back down....
Disable the LAN conncetion or remove the LAN cable. Then try delete the items. It should not reappear.

Hi there,

Thanks for your response.

Unfortunately this didn't work. I disconnected from the LAN and deleted the items in question but they all reappeared after a reboot.

Could this be to do wth havng a roaming profile?

I changed profile to local, rebooted, deleted from my network places, checked the area you suggested, deleted from recycle bin, rebooted and checked and they are still gone and have been for the last 2 days.

Cheers for your help :)
