    Every user's logonScript will execute "NET USE * / DELETE / YES> NUL" to ensure that the client PC don't have network drives exist, but many users have been many shortcut icons on the desktop, these shortcuts are from previous network drive mapping , when the user clicks these icons, these previous network drive mapping will automatically rebuilding.
