This is a quite common problem and not related to Samba. The reason is
a (mis-)feature of Microsoft's *.lnk files, which sometimes try to be
too smart (store the UNC name of a ressource where it is not
appropriate). One way to repair this is to use the "scut" program
provided with the NT Resource Kit:
- Cd into your program menu folder (on a German NT this would be
%USERPROFILE%\Startmenü\Programme --- this obviously needs to be
- Change all your *.lnk files to non-smart links using "scut *.lnk -s"

Now if *that* really works, you have yet another problem: an admin
with a blank password is generally not a goot idea...
