XP Start Menu Problem
OK caught a Yr10 doing this yesterday and cannot figure out how to get round it..
Using the XP Style Start Menu - which has been restricted via GPO to only show:
Redirected "All Programs"
My Computer with their Home Drive, Pen Drive and Shared Area
Part of the GPO is to disable right click on the taskbar & start menu - which works fine.... or at least i thought it did..
It seems that users can STILL right click on the "All Programs" menu which gives them a nice sub-menu with "Open, Explore, etc"
THe user can then use the "Explore" option and can then drill down to "My Network Places (MNP)" and gets a list of Domains & all Pc's within - of which they can then get into all the shares!!
Now - MNP is disabled via GPO - and if they click "Open" they cannot get to MNP
I have been through every setting I can find in GPMC and googled it but there is no solution..
Only "workaround" is to change back to the Classic Start Menu which i dont really wanna do
or change everything from \\server\share to \\server\share$ - time consuming with having to amend GPOs, logon scripts, etc.
Has anyone else come across this or resolved it?
