Windows 7: How can I get rid of old network drive 'shares'?

How can I get rid of old network drive 'shares'?

I inherited a Win 7 PC that is now working well in my network. However it was mapped to 4 network drives in its earlier enviornment. Now on every startup Win 7 dutifully reports to me "could not connect with all network drives."
I can see the grayed out drive shortcuts but I can't figure out how to find and delete these shares. Where will I find them?
