Why does a 'Virtual Disk Network' appear in my Windows 'Entire Network'?

    The Virtual Disk Network relates to the Connect Drives feature. To remove the Virtual Disk Network:

    1. Go to Start, Run, and type regedit
    2. Delete the following registry keys:
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LMIRfsClientNP
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LMIRfsDriver

    After a reboot, you will no longer see the Virtual Disk Network.
