Hi Thinners,

After the "sasser" patch BSOD'ed our NT4TS+Citrix server, we restored C:
from backup.

All seemed fine, however, both old users and newly created users
expirience the following problem:
When starting an Office App. (Excel, word, PP, version Off2k) it pops up a
dialog saying "Incorrect Password or unknown username for: \\SERVER\C$
with the fields to "Connect as"

The default user profile has no reference to \\SERVER, and I cannot find
any reference in the after-creation NTUSER.DAT

Perhaps this is a setting from the install part of the office registry
which IIRC Citrix Manages (but what hive/key was it again?) but I cannot
find it.

Any clues how to resolve this problem?
