if you still have any mapped drives which point to bill or jill, my computer will take ages to load as it tries to open the connections and they fail. Make sure you update the login scripts with the mapped drives to the new locations. You might want to add the line net use /del * /y to clear any old mapped drives first.
As for the right click context menu. Is there anything in there which used resources on the old servers? Such as maybe a network application which was run from there etc. That might need reinstalling to update the shortcuts etc
The amount of times i ran into miscellaneous troubles and problem was dns related i lost count. Sp might be worth checking DNS ?

Make sure your logon script that is managing your network drives is deleting the old ones first so if you have an O:\ drive mapped to something u want to put in "NET USE O: /DELETE" Before actually having the new one map. Also might be worth blanking the profiles?

I've cut all maps in the scripts.
i was just trying to find out if i was doing it right (so far) as i've not done many server removals. I think the problems must be linked with the dns and the fact all the users "my docs" was held on jill and in some cases windows automatically points to jill when clicking save as. I think i've done nearly everything right but it will just take longer than i thought to get rid of all references to these servers as they were used so heavily.
Thanks for the help guys you have given me hope i was thinking that next to my lovely new shiney cab would be 2 old horrible looking servers plugged in to it keeping it all together

and if you have roming profiles on the server for user accouns DEL them so it removes all trace of the old server and
or just the do a search for NTUSER.DAT and del them all
for for me

Ye we had a similar problem when students clicked save as it look them back to the old server, which is why we ended up having to clear everyone's profile, and make sure all the paths in the GPO pointed everyone to the new location and that all students mapped to the new server.
