    solved win 7 gpo to block users going to c: through office file/open then tryping c:

    can someone point me in the right direction of the policy i need to set that stops limited users browing the c drive trough office and other programs that have a file open box

    eg

    c is hidden but if users try c: in a file open dialogue box they can browse the c drive

    any ideas

    my policy for xp is working but windows 7 is still allowing access

    "Prevent access to drives from My Computer" is what you want, it's in the same location as hiding them under administrative templates > windows components > windows explorer
