If your experiencing this, you know this getting annoying real fast. Especially in the business or office/workplace. There is one possible solution to fix this issue that I know of.

Solution:

1.) Click on [ My Network Places ].
2.) Click on Tools tab.
3.) Then click on Folder Options.
4.) Click on View
5.) Make sure that you un-check "Automatically search for network folders and printers".

Once you have made sure this feature has been disabled you can go though and delete the remaining short cuts that are still there.
