  • Disable / Hide My Network Places

    I dont want my users to browse the network or see other computers in the Domain.
    Is there a way to hide/disable access to the "my network places" icon?
    Or, when they double click on "My Network Places", no computer shows up?

    All clients PC's are running XP and my server is running Win2003

    I think in GPO this is possible?

        Thanks for the information. It worked great. The icon "my network places" was hidden and also the option to "computers near me".

        The only thing is that, if i type in the adress bar of windows explorer "my network places", my domain and computers shows up.

        I dont think that my users are smart enough to figure this out, however i'd like to also disable this feature. Is this possible?

        And once again, thanks for the info!
