New Update.

Went to the user machine this morning.  Using regedit I went through the 
registry and removed any keys / values that contained the samba server name.

Rebooted and then re-mapped a drive.  Still no joy.  Trying to do a simple 
drag and drop copy form one location in the share to another location in the 
same share causes the machine to reboot.

Ideas / suggestions?

Many Thanks
