Issues with redirected / sychronizing files

Hello experts

I have a new user that when he shuts down, he gets an error message indicating that errors occurred while Windows was synchronizing your data.  He is using Windows XP SP3.  The error verbatum is...

Offline Files [\\pc11\c$ on pc11]: Unable to connect to 'pc11\c$'.  The network path was not found.

Well, the path for that PC won't be found because it's no longer on the network.  The user is logging into pc12 and I can't figure out why the synch is trying to pull from a pc that wasn't even there when this user started.  Do you guys have any ideas?

Thanks much
