I used Windows Explorer to map several network drives and now want to reverse the mapping permanently. I can remove it temporarily using a number of methods (e.g. Windows Explorer disconnect network drive, or program run net use xx: /delete, etc.) but when I reboot the mapped network drives are back.

How can I get rid of them for good? Surely there must be a straightforward way that doesn't involve things like registry edits.

Thanks for your help, Ken.

One method that worked for me when I had this issue previously was to disconnect the drives like you have done. Then recreate them and make sure that reconnect at logon is NOT ticked. Then disconnect the drive again.

Hmmm, tried it 3 times and they always come back on the next boot. I made sure to keep the reconnect at logon box unchecked. Any other suggestions? This is getting rather frustrating.
