    Disable Network Icon in Windows Explorer via GPO

    Hi everyone

    Does anyone know of a way to disable the network icon via GPO, which appears when you open the 'Computer' icon windows on Windows 7? We are testing on our network and its just about the last loophole as it shows a complete browse list!

    Have looked through GPMC until my eyes spin and can't see anything that relates to it - not saying its not there of course.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kevin

    No *Entire Network* in My Network Places
    This may be able to help.

    Edit:
    Remove 'Network' from navigation pane
    Possibly this as well.

    With group policy preferences you can create

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\NonEnum\{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}

    Type = DWORD
    Value = 1

    No Entire Network in My Network Places - this setting is Win 2000, 2003, XP only. The reg hack is the way to do it in Win 7.

    A better way is the group policy template

    Sorry to necropost but this was really helpful, thanks folks.

    Any .adm templates for doing the same in the Explorer pane with Favorites?

    EDIT - nevermind, taking the plunge and knocking one up myself. Will put it up if successful.

    For anyone else looking for this information you can find some here: remove network icon from navigation pane. Also a link there for the removing the libraries and uninstall or change a program button.
