I have several shortcuts to a Network folder (on my work PC Windows 7) that dissapear every Monday while I'm at lunch unless I work through lunch, then they dissapear on Tuesday lunch. It's possible I have a CWNETD (coworker with nothing else to do) but he/she would need to be very dedicated to this and that doesn't seem to be the case.

Anyone have any ideas? My IT dept has tried a few things but still no luck.
Thanks, Dave

Hi Dave

Can't you just lock you computer when you are on lunch, make sure it's password protected
Shortcut "Window key + L"
