I have mapped a number of drives locally to mimick the drives at work.
I have mapped the drive to \\127.0.0.1\<shared Folder>.
Recently these drives can't be found. I can ping 127.0.0.1 and get a reply. The folders share options haven't changed and i set a network drive via \\<ComputerName>\<shared Folder.
When i ping the computer name i get a MAC address, rather than an IP Address.
Not sure what is happening, but now my machine is slow to start up.
