Unused icons in My Network Places.

    I use computers with either XP/3 or Vista/1 shared on a wireless
    network. When I open "My Network Places" or "Network" I receive a
    number of shared folders which I can't open. Some other folders can be
    opened.

    How can I remove these unused folders without loosing files they may
    contain?

    Many thanks,

    Peter.

  3. Hi
    What ever you can delete.
    Look at the Network's computers and make sure that there is Mapped drives
    that are Not valid anymore, and Unmap them.
    The rest would disappear after few boots,
