Connect to network drive on startup

Specs: xp pro, amd,1gb ddr
I have a network drive which keeps trying to connect on startup. The location itself is only available when i have a program running that connects to the office. It isnt something i need on all the time, so when xp starts, there is a 1 minute wait for it to timeout and tell me it cannot connect. Having googled, all i read is that i have to disconnect the drive altogether which i cannot do as i need it.


Is there a way of making the network drive only connect when i click on it?

Take a look on this page:

It has two scripts you can use: 1 to map a network drive and one to disconnect a network drive.

You could just run the connect script when you need to connect to the drive and you would want to run the disconnect script whenever you shut down.
