At least your honest!

I might add that to my VB Scrips thanks
As for the share I will probably just change the share name. I remember this problem in the past being very odd, people would run a script to add \\server1\shared but would get \\server2\shared and sometimes it would appear to be connected to one server then you would open the share and get a different one. I put it down to something wrong with the browser service in the end. Anyway I just wondered if anyone else had ever seen this issue.

The best way to prevent this is to get the script to delete all potential drive mappings as one of the first things it does. Start from a blank slate so to speak and then add relevant drives back in later on in the script.

My VB login script deleted all drives before mapping new ones, trust me it was nothing that straight forward.

Strange then. I suppose it's never simple though is it! Were the shares normal ones or admin ones i.e. Netlogon / Sysvol etc?

The only time I've had issues like this is when roaming profiles remember certain drive mappings, and for some reason these get mapped AFTER the logon script has run. Solution to the problem I was having (Where my S:\ was still mapping to my old SIMS server on some peoples profiles) was to have a logoff script that ran to delete these drive mappings before the profile was saved. I also do the same with printers that are mapped by logon script. Remember the user hive of a roaming profile can save all these things at logoff.
