Windows 7: Domain User Sees Server Shares under "Other"

Domain User Sees Server Shares under "Other"

I have had this client for about 5 years now and haven't had this problem before. I created his user account and setup his access. When i logged in his computer as him, under "My Computer" I see "Other" and then all of the drives on the server, which no other user has. What is causing this???? He has full access to everything on the server drives and i cant seem to find where he is getting this permission from.

Any help is much appreciated!!!!!!!!

You created his user account? after you had him for about 5 years? in a domain?

Sorry, i was stating that i have had this client for about 5 years and never had this problem. They hired a new employee and i created his account the same way i setup all the other ones (or so i thought).
