Network - Windows 7
I can't seem to find a definitive answer to this. I don't need to hide the network part of Windows 7 (although I guess that would solve this problem!) but I would like to stop them "searching" Active Directory. Is there a gpo I have missed that can block this?
I've done this for XP and 7.
Open up a GPO: User Conf --> Administrative Templates --> Desktop --> Active Directory
Here, set the Maximum size of AD searches to 0. This will return zero results for your users on computers, printers etc.
But just to ask, have you? and if so what GPO did you use?

Thanks chuckster too - that did the trick
Just to ask, how did you diable the network discovery?
Did you use Computer Config ==> Admin Templates ==> Network ==> Link layer Topology Discovery ==> Turn on Mapper I/O?
Or another method?
You can disable it on the PC itself, under Network and Sharing, Advanced network and sharing. Not found a GPO for this though.
