every morning when I turn on my laptop, I get the stupid balloon in the
corner, and it wouldn't be a problem if it went away, but I have to click on
the "x" to get rid of it.

Computer's are supposed to make my life easier, not harder. This stupid
useless balloon is not helping me, and I want to get rid of it. I know it has
to be a registry entry somewhere. does anyone have an answer?

Thanks

Re: how do i remove popup "could not connect to all network drives

Sorry. Not a viable solution.

I use the drives, but some of them are mapped to shares on other computers
that aren't alwas on. Also two of the drives are mapped to a file server
through openVPN which only comes up after I've logged in. (OpenVPN allows me
to connect both inside and outside the firewall).

I need to have the drives mapped, I don't need to know if windows was able
to auto connect at log in.

Delete the mapping and recreate it without 'reconnect at login' ticked ?

That could work. Doesn't it delete the mapping though when I log out? I seem
to remember that happening in previous versions of Windows.

I'll try it and find out.

If you do not check the "reconnect at login" box, it doesn't keep the mapping
after a reboot. This was not the solution.

It has to be a registry entry, I seem to remember seeing something like it a
few years ago, but I can't find it.

Re: how do i remove popup "could not connect to all network drives

Came up with a solution, still working on making it perfect.
unmapped the drives that I had.

Created a new network location. used the same shares as I did before using
\\computer\share\ and then named the share according to the names I gave the
drive mapping. (used to be "I:\" now it's "I; drive")

doesn't give me errors when I boot, and I can read and write to the shares
as before. Biggest drawback so far is that I can't get disk usage stats like
bytes free space.

I've found the error occurs when you have a drive mapped persistenly
(with Reconnect at Logon checked) and the AD profile tab is configured
to map the same drive letter. The drive cannot be mapped since one is
already present and therefore an error is generated.
