    Partly solved my problems by enabling "Maximum size of Active Directory searches" and setting it to 0

    But still does anyone know how to remove it completely.

    We are having the same problem if anyone knows other solutions? We tried changing the maximum number of searches but the kids would still be able to see everything.

    How about this?:

    Setting Path:
    User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Active DirectorySupported On:Windows 2000 only
    ExplanationHides the Active Directory folder in Network Locations.

    The Active Directory folder displays Active Directory objects in a browse window.

    If you enable this setting, the Active Directory folder does not appear in the Network Locations folder.

    If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the Active Directory folder appears in the Network Locations folder.

    This setting is designed to let users search Active Directory but not tempt them to casually browse Active Directory.

    We have that and "Maximum size of Active Directory searches" set to 0 and Im pretty sure we dont see it.
