Windows 7: Automatically creating shortcuts for new files and folders

Automatically creating shortcuts for new files and folders

We currently have a user who has recently been upgraded to Windows 7 x64 and has this weird issue with shortcuts. When this user creates a new file or folder on a network share it's also creating a shortcut in the root of the share. This is only affecting this user and the only thing I can think of is to blow away the local profile on the laptop. Has anyone else seen this before or has any ideas?
