In Windows XP Professional I used a renuse command in place of the net use command to map a drive for users in a lab environment. The advantage of this command is that it hid the unc path to the network share that the mapped drive referred to. However, This renuse command is not working in Windows 7 Professional. Is there a way to continue to hide this UNC path for these mapped drives shown in the My Computer Window.

You could right click on the mapped drive and choose “rename”.

U can use GPO to solve ur problems !
Click Start > regedit
and locate this folder in the Windows Registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software \Microsoft \ Windows\ CurrentVersion \ Policies\ Explorer
Now right click on the right pane and from the menu select New – DWORD (32 bit) Value & name as NoNetConnectDisconnect. Double click the key and give it the value 1 to hide, and restart computer for the change to take effect.
